The excellent 6310 lacks such pointless extras. It makes calls and does texting. Brilliant bit of kit.

This means it's practically impossible for millennials to communicate with you. Perfect. :y

OK...so a 3310 is make by Nokia, and looks dated enough that Brunel could have invented it.  :)

Yep, charge it up once a week whether it needs it or not. :y I'm tempted, actually.. Or have I still got a box of 6310is somewhere? ::)

Would you trust people who can't spell their own name to make decent tyres, though? :-\

So, what he's saying is that it's not as shit as May's deal?

Wow. That's such a high bar against which to judge it, too. ;D

I'm beyond caring.  The damage has been done (and anyone disagreeing needs to pull their head from their browneye), and we need to limit the damage by doing something - anything - on the 29th. Hard, Soft, No - I care not.

Yep, only a politician, who has never lived in the real world, can kid themselves that kicking the can further down the road and prolonging the uncertainty isn't the worst possible option. >:(

Yes, they did take away the old stuff and replace the underlay. Don't remember them charging for that, but I'm sure I paid one way or the other. ;)

Was too knee deep in decorating to amass enough arsed-ness to take the old one to the tip. ::)

If you have to replace it anyway, then it might be worthwhile, but if the current wire is OK then I wouldn't bother.

Not all network cable is designed to cope with the levels of moisture and UV light that an external cable is exposed to, so use an exterior rated cable or put it in a length of conduit. :y

We've just had a new stairs and landing carpet. Wanted a stripy one until the carpet fitter took a look at our stair case and assured us that we didn't because none of it will match around the staggered steps. ;D

My wallet has been lightened to a rather greater degree than STEMO's though. Maybe I need to move to Barnsley? Once I've had some wear out of this carpet, natch. ::)

It's nearly time for PMQ's. Should be a friendly, easy going type of debate.

Get ready for deployment of the "I've lost my voice" defence. ::)

Are chargers always available or will you need to queue for hours to get one during busy periods?

I read an article once where someone had worked out the rate of energy transfer supported by a large motorway service station during a busy period, and calculated the equivalent energy consumption in kW that the electrical supply would need to sustain if it were charging the equivalent number of EVs. It was quite a large number. A "not going to happen" number, in fact. ;D

Once we're all driving milk floats, we'll need to forget about mobility as we know it.

Just lash him to the nose of a 737 Max.

FTFY!  :y

With duct tape that's rate to, oh, about 10,000 feet. :y

Yes, if the EU seem intransigent in their "negotiations" now, wait until they've got us under May's deal and we start to talk about the end game where they have everything they want in the bag and we go begging for some scraps.  ::)

It would have been a much better strategy to walk away from the table as soon as they started talking about staging the negotiations, or when they allowed Varadkar to dig his oar in. It has been obvious since then that it would come to nothing.

Im happy enough with the Bose in my car. My ears are truly wrecked anyway. Got tinnitus in the right one and the left one aint great either.  ::)

Yes, got a bit of that myself. It prompted me to buy my dream pair of "wife unfriendly" speakers while I can still enjoy them and just soak up the flack. ;D

Problem is Lizzie is we seem to going backwards in terms of REAL Sound Quality is this modern age of ours, most of the these so called Bluetooth Devices or Mini Pod Speakers peeps use to deliver there Sounds today are far from what we would term as HiFi in the old days.

Started my Electonics Career as a Sound Engineer in a Studio then a HiFi / Audio Engineer and whilst then I would had to have listened to some Snap, Crackle and Hiss the quality far out performs most of the modern mini and portable junk sold these days

The real tragedy is that music is now being mastered to suit shitty Bluetooth speakers so it sounds appalling no matter what you play it on. It's a good job I don't listen to much music that was recorded past the '80s. ::)

You can't change the laws of physics. If you want decent sound reproduction, you need to give over a significant chunk of living room space to speakers. People of today can't be @rsed with that, so end up with god awful sound bars, or even echo dots and the like as their music source.

They got blown away when they hear a decent system, but then say they'd like to hear it from a smaller box, as if that's even remotely plausible. ;D
