Re: Thank you

Aren't ASD and ADHD disorders not illnesses. Illnesses imply cures are possible. Disorders implies something that just is, it just exists. In these cases it's a kind of difference from so called normal behaviour traits. Appropriate word if you read ADHD forum posts from someone who is really struggl...

Re: Walking boots - warranty claim query

If you want my opinion (I'll give it anyway) your test wasn't that good. IMHO I didn't think it proved anything. Certainly not as clearly as a boot of water and water spewing out of the seams near the stitching. IMHO the photographs of they're test shows the failure very clearly but it also indicate...

Re: Walking boots - warranty claim query

Cheque's in the post! Seriously, your confidence in the fault was not matched in your confidence in the test for the fault. If you had done it perhaps it could have been cleared sooner??? I hope Keen explain what the fault is. I suspect the way the membrane bootie is put in between the inner and out...

Re: Online newspapers are increasingly centred around opinion pieces, discuss.

If you want help... But it'll be you're reputation ruined if you take me up on the offer. I'm no ICT techie. Used to play around with Windows NT years ago helping it manager at work. I like to include a few grammar and spelling mistakes in my posts. It makes me feel better to give people something t...

Re: Online newspapers are increasingly centred around opinion pieces, discuss.

True but I'm kind of thinking that most people have contact with newspaper sites through social media posts. Most of them seem to be opinion pieces. So could newspapers see that they get more visits to opinion pages so put more online. End result less news and more echo chamber opinion pieces aimed ...

Re: Jokes about murder.

I heard that one of Jo Brand's jokes was as follows:

"The way to a man's heart is through his hankie pocket with a knife!"

I'm sure I've heard jokes about violence from JB in the past too. She's not adverse to risky jokes. It's part of her style.

Re: Barclays

It's the card number he's entering. The system AIUI is you have a barclays card and have set it up to have this pin reminder. You then use their app and enter the card number to get your pin. You aren't remembering an 8 digit number to get your 4 digit pin. That number is on your card that you're ab...

Re: Tory leader - place your bets

As I've posted for a long time now, there is no party or politician I feel I could vote for. Tories under may was bad, under BJ it's a nightmare. Can anyone say cut price trump for pm? Seriously, he's like a pathetic version of trump right down to a not healthy to women relationship with women. By t...

Re: Things that make you disproportionately happy.

A rather wet and windy ride home years ago (during my old cycle commute days that lasted one spring into summer but ended with summer rains) I got my best time home. It worked out as a 24mph average speed without accounting for stops at lights so included time stopped. That was why miles so nothing ...

Re: Online newspapers are increasingly centred around opinion pieces, discuss.

There's a guy from Scotland who's converted his subreddit to a commercial website where people post a point of view and invites others to change their mind. It was set up originally on reddit by a guy 17 years old who thought there must be more than his small town and the views held that may or may ...

Online newspapers are increasingly centred around opinion pieces, discuss.

Perhaps it's a case of having newspapers' online presence being filtered down to opinion articles but it seems to me that there is more prominence to opinion articles than news. My filtering could be from google/bing news or from forums posting them more than news articles. Whatever the cause my awa...

Re: Tent for exposed areas maybe highish winds

I didn't mean to imply trailstar was an Arctic strength so I'm clarify my meaning pyramid tents are the best shape for wind shedding. As an example of ultimate need for this look at Arctic tents. However for more normal use the highly regarded trailstar is a good example for UK hill use. As for the ...
