RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

Can't think where else to put this as not worthy of a thread of its own...

"You liked all of Discovery? Interesting... I gave up after the first season."

It got better, I just hated the main character (bizarrely called Michael) being permanently angry...

He's a great actor, glad to see this new series is an improvement over the last one despite the slip at the end of the last episode (thought still not seen any of them yet)...

RE: Pay As You Go sim - no data...

Cheers, picked up the £10 one as unlimited minutes/texts and no idea if we'll need that yet.  Has data on it, which I don't need but there you go...

Pay As You Go sim - no data...

OK, a bit of an odd one I suspect...

I've taken over the running of a local charity branch and looking to overhaul our comms, which is a phone with answer machine where the messages can only be picked up once a week.

So my idea is to get a basic non-smart phone with voicemail and text capability, I'll then get the phone forwarded to the mobile during a transition period where I'll look to get the numbers changed everywhere I can find them online and then cancel the landline once I'm happy all the calls are coming direct to the mobile.

So...where can I find a decent PAYG sim that does not include any data?

Not really bothered, last one I liked was Living Daylights but even then it just wasn't that big a deal to me...

I'm the same, the only song I was familiar with was Spirit of Radio but only because it was a UK hit back in 80/81 and appears on loads of compilations.

Bought the Chronicles compilation last night though...

"thats an excellent example of using research skills.

Perhaps the original poster would be interested in hiring you as a research analyst or maybe teaching him how to Google?

Either way I'm sure if the pair of you put your heads together, I'd find an overseas investor, this time next month youll be gazillionaires."

Happy to hire out my services, fancy being my agent?

RE: Exhibition

Well, in my view (not really)...

Both custom and modular stands have their pros and cons, which means there is no single right answer in terms of which is the best choice overall. Indeed, the best option for your business will depend on a number of different factors and there are various things you should take into account when making a decision.

The most obvious consideration is your available budget. If you have a large budget for your exhibition, a custom stand may make sense, but if you are operating on a shoestring, the savings associated with modular stands may swing it. It is also worth considering how long you will have to set up the stand and whether you plan to use it again.

Finally, you should think about what you are actually hoping to achieve with your exhibition. If you are launching a new product, or trying to enter a new market, attracting attention is important and a custom stand may be best. If you are already well established in your market and your aims are to generate more sales, a modular stand is likely to produce a better return on investment.

"Not long after the death of Diana, I recall one of the more fantastical and insulting conspiracy theories about her death. That being, Diana was the last living descendent of Jesus (bear with me), and that she was pregnant with Dodi's child, instilling an 'unwanted Moor trait' into the holy bloodline, and the Illuminati (or insert current mythical enemy of your choice) had her bumped off."

Who in the mainstream media published that?

"Oh, absolutely. But in the little bubble that is my workplace, that's pretty much the main reason given (customers, not staff)."

That's just bizarre.  I get the concerns, just about, about her being American but her race/colour/whatever doesn't even enter my head in the slightest...

" Meghan's American & not white, and that alone is reason enough for some purists to refer to her in less favourable terms."

Whilst that may well be true for a few, I really do think there's much more to it than that...

Good video, even if on the coattails of Ricky Gervais.

"I'm not enough of a Who nerd to get on board with all the negating of previous plots etc but...
For me those two episodes were far more engaging than the entire previous series and any attempt to pick holes in story of a time travelling, regenerating main character?
Really?
Let's just stay on board and see how they plan to resolve it."

That's generally me as well...other than still not seen those two new episodes...

RE: Everton: 2019/20 season

Seems a senior player cull may be coming:

Duncan Ferguson gave some home truths to the Everton squad in the dressing room after Sunday’s defeat. Some senior players argued that they had put effort into the 2nd half and denied that they threw in the towel. These players blamed the tactics

The defiant stance of some senior Everton players left Carlo Ancelotti and the rest of the coaching staff stunned. Carlo was shocked at just how bad some of the players’ performances were against Liverpool

"There are some iconic games there that people under the age of 30 will have no idea what they are! But they also probably don't buy stamps."

Good point, well made.

Agree that the choice of Dizzy is an odd one though.  I'd have gone with Manic Miner, Chuckie Egg or even Monty Mole...
