    The latest Paperwhite is waterproof so great for bath reading, beach use etc.

    I would be tempted to upgrade if I did not have a perfectly good Kindle Voyage with 3G.

    3G was great when I used to do a lot of travelling – not really needed if you have easy wifi access.

    Raheem Sterling gets my vote – won four trophies last year and became a real figurehead against racism in sport. He will not win it because of the stupid hysteria about the Gomez incident. That should never have got out and the way in which Sterling was cast as the villain when Liverpool players had been trying to deliberately injure him and his…[Read more]

  • Hi all,

    My daughter who is 13 plays the trumpet to a reasonable standard likes tinkering around with with music stuff in general.

    I am thinking of getting her a keyboard for Xmas and am looking for recommendations for a reasonable entry level device. It would be useful if it integrated with iPad and/or Bluetooth speakers.


  • Marin great story – you must be one of the few fans that remembers Owen fondly though.

    Not sure if it is quite what you are after but I bought an Altura Night Vision Safety Vest to wear on a 300km audax that started at 10pm last week.

    £12 from Evans – they come up large so size down if you go for this.

    Maybe not the coolest garment ever but it is very visible and provides minimal warmth.

  • My suggestion about Vardy was to cover when Kane was out and as an impact sub. Really Spurs should have beaten Leicester to the title a few years ago and, with a bit of backing from the board in the January transfer window, probably could have done so.

    It will be interesting to see if any of the wantaway players decide to stay given the change in…[Read more]

  • Seems crazy to sack him – if the owners had backed him and he could have bought a striker such as Vardy a few years ago they would probably have won something. Anyone who thinks Jose’s negative miserablism will be an improvement needs to give their head a wobble.

  • Hi,
    My company has a small group of people who are looking to develop coding and automation skills as many of the products we sell now come with APIs to extend their functionality.
    I am looking for a free solution to allow us to share knowledge and code between ourselves but nothing as formal as github.
    If things take off I can approach the…[Read more]

    I’ve got a large 650b with Rival. I am just under 6ft and tbh it fits after I put the saddle forward about 2cm from the position in which it was delivered – should probably have got a medium.

    Whereabouts are you OP? – I am in Cheltenham and would be happy for you to have a quick blast on it if you are anywhere close.

    Glad to hear that you are ok. It sounds like you had done a lot to amke yourself visible to other road users. Given that and the video evidence it would seem hard for the bus comapny to defend the driver’s actions in hitting you.

    Interested to know if you have any idea why he hit you? – what it a tricky piece of road or were you slowing to…[Read more]

  • I can relate to what you have written. I have a stepson who is 22 and gives little indication that he will become independent any time soon. He is at uni but failed his second year exams and decided to take a year out before retaking them (he could have done that in the August of last year). He insisted that he was not ready for the third year and…[Read more]

  • I currently have my Virgin hub set up as a modem and use a third party router. It is supposedly a decent one (Cisco) with Gigibit interfaces – would this effect the speed significantly?

  • Thanks – I am trying to talk to them about speed issues. Currently I only get around 30 Mbps despite paying for 200 Mbps. The samknows broadband checker says that the max speed available via Virgin is 50 Mbps so 30 Mbps is not too bad for that I guess. I am just trying to get them to confirm what speed I can get and, if it is only 50 Mbps, change my bill.
