Re: Curved TVs

I have a LG 4k resolution TV here in Cyprus. When viewing for example a YouTube 4k stream it is superb quality.
Some 4K streams available via a Kodi system device will likely have the streaming data upscaled to look like 4K but it ain't really!

Re: Authentic Bavarian Sausage, Consumer verdict?

I cannot believe how relevant this post is... I just had half a pack ( 7 of them after all they are pretty small) with eggs for my breakfast. I Love the little buggers they hands down beat a traditional English Pork banger.

Re: British Empire.... Good or Bad?

I am proud Britain once had an Empire. What happened is History and not the responsibility of the present British people. I get sick and tired of the negative comments about what Britain and Colonisation meant. Was Britain the only country ever to have an Empire or simply colonise a far flung land -...

Re: England vs. Italy Rugby

No flattery at all.
They were outplayed by Italy in the first half. Played them at their own game - overcame the tackle only rule by getting the lumps to drive straight through the uncontested tackle and blitzed the 2nd half with a few more tries than the Italians scored.
No flattery at all.

Re: Why Cyprus?

Used to work in Saudi, needed somewhere within 3 max 4 hrs flight to get away to at weekends and the nearest half decent place to buy a property with cash burning a hole in my pockets was Cyprus. That was almost 14 years ago and still here, now happily on early retirement.

When using a grip or zip sided case in the past I always secured the zip tag/slider to the end of its run with a small cable tie. Stops the inquisitive from taking a little look inside.

Re: Reports show more breakdown of Brexit Voters - and results were in line with educational attainment!

One sentence in the report says it all for me - The level of education had a higher correlation with the voting pattern than any other major demographic measure from the census As Dominic suggested on a different thread, with regard to Trump voting, there may be other factors involved, for example,...

Re: Cracked I-pad Screen

New screen will be in the €100 bracket provided the corners of the frame have not been damaged.
If it still functions okay then get yourself a stick on screen protector, that will help hold it together.

Surely Trump is just doing what the electorate that voted him into office want him to do? After all he made no bones about his plans in his election manifesto or whatever the spams call it. Well done Trump.

Never understand why when talking of heating a volume of air so many sites use square feet by default in the calc when we are really looking to heat or cool a cubic area.
