Re: Film to watch 1917

I will watch it on my TV to decide also.
Although mine isn't as big as Jim X and WHL's, I am sure that if it is a good film size will be irrelevant. 😜

I pay for 20mbps but when I tried the test,it shows -download as13-3 and upload as 0-8.Is this correct?
No you should be getting 20mb download, some may be lost if all your devices are on wifi, call Cyta on 132 and tell them, they usually can sort it from their end.

As I said you couldn't make it up..

I think that there is confusion, 'Large/small beer battered' its a beer batter that is used, you do not get a Beer as part of the price

Re: New:: Fish & chip restaurant in Tala square

Ive changed my mind, I read it as the heading suggested, quite a few tavernas/restaurants sell fish and chips and also do takeaways.

Re: This is a brilliant way to store all your videos and photos

Yes, it saves on time to store photos but the 64gb is nearly £40, almost four times more expensive than a standard 64gb memory stick.
Being retired I have plenty of time on my hands, so I think that I will save my meagre pension income and buy a standard memory stick.
