    How many cells are you looking to join?

    a bit of a faff I know but could you do it with an IF and some “,” and &s

    • That’s what I think I’m going to have to do, would have been nice to avoid it though. Becomes rather long because it’s got indirect in it.

    Do you really want to get into a neighbour dispute with him? Neighbour disputes can get ugly, and at worst could affect the sale of your property at some future date.

    As the question of “right of way” sounds a bit grey to me, I’d be inclined to accept that as a driver he appears to be an inconsiderate wanker and just accept that he’s going to do…[Read more]

    It has been ingrained in certain areas of the media over the last 20 years that the EU is a bureaucratic deadweight holding the UK back, some people will believe this even if the evidence is right in front of them.

    I personals know a person who voted brexit who lives and works in north wales who works in a German owned factory which was funded by…[Read more]

    I don’t think that quite covers this case. People were assured it would be in their best interests eg £350m a week for the NHS, you will keep all the same rights, countries will be queuing up to sign trade deals, it can all be sorted in a couple of quick meetings etc etc. Well it’s not quite panned out like that so I believe people should now be…[Read more]

    In my opinion some people are looking at things in the wrong way. There’s another way of looking at the EU, which is this. However much characters in the past, and characters today like Juncker think it’s ‘their’ project, it’s no such thing – it’s an inexorable development in a world of free trade, globalisation and individual freedom. It makes no…[Read more]

      I have no problem with free trade, customs unions, common regulations, etc.

      I do have a problem with free movement of labour when it skews the domestic labour conditions, handing over large sums of money to fund a political aim and having to accept european laws in a domestic setting.

      It is/should be possible to share common goals and ambitions…[Read more]

    S7 user here. Its definitely the best phone I have owned, nice and fast with a very responsive screen. I use it for hours every day to read and edit word documents plus the usuall emails and phone calls.

    Google maps V Tom Tom. I preferred Tom Tom but I have used one for 20 years plus. A couple of lads I work with turned down a company provided…[Read more]

    • Hi My concern about using Google maps or any other new software is can it keep up if your driving fast? Used to do multi drop which is reason I bought a TomTom and only had 3 issues with it over many years.

      Have had a samsung phone for many years and they are reliable from my experience you could say im being conservative (with a small ‘c’)…[Read more]

    I think there’s a difference between wondering if it’s too good for you (which is rubbish, by the way ) and something which just isn’t going to work for you. A lovely cream carpet in the hall would feel like luxury to me, but it would be completely incompatible with my lifestyle aka im one dirty person.

    Equally, if you want matchy furniture, it’s…[Read more]

    You need a certain force (the rocket) to lift whatever you want against gravity. But that also needs to lift itself so it needs to be bigger.

    Then add in the air resistance once it’s moving and you need a bit more rocket to overcome that resistance, and even more rocket as it moves faster as drag increases at the square of the increase in…[Read more]
