#516728 You Had One Job Experience.

Yep either avoid the place, or perhaps have a firm word with the manager, and explain the conduct of his/her tool of an employee.

The 'Vauxhall-head' van driver that tailgated me on the M4, only a few meters away from my bumper. Add to that the fact that it was pouring down rain, and the visibility was atrocious. Very reckless.

60 mph, cruise control on down the motorway twice a day 5 days a week lol.

The difference in fuel economy is quite considerable - cruising at 60-65 in the left hand lane, as opposed to keeping up with the flow in the right hand lane. I just wish I had cruise control, would make it easier instead of going 60 for a minute, then 65, then back down to 60 again lol.

I'm sold on the idea Zico. Meanwhile, last night I was DUI, and hit an old lady.


Clive can you please erase my arrest warrant?  :P

#512902 Legal Reg Plate?

Posted by Incontro on 17 August 2015 - 06:25 AM

There are a huge number of cars running around my area with insane amounts of tint on the front windows, completely blackened tail-lights, and illegal number plates. I wish the police in this country weren't spread so thin, the situation is getting worse.

Why couldn't it hit the green Peugeot instead?  :rolleyes:

Real estate agents that don't answer their phone. I mean really??? How else are you supposed to do business!!


Van drivers who cut you up on roundabouts, and then raise their hand at you in frustration, despite the fact you are signalling correctly. (No horn used either)


Wreckless drivers who run through a red light, and almost run into you as you emerge from a junction on a green.

You must be quite the audiophile to be considering all this Sara!  :o

#511533 Laptops With Wifi Ac

Posted by Incontro on 12 August 2015 - 11:02 AM

When looking at consumer notebooks, don't worry about brand too much. A lot of it is purely down to luck/statistics rather than quality of the brand. I have had a Lenovo die on me, and an Asus too. My brother's HP hasn't died, but has several quality issues.


On another note,if you are REALLY concerned about reliability, then I will say this:


If you buy a business notebook, rather than a consumer notebook, there is a MUCH greater chance that it will last longer, hence why I posted a couple of links previously to business notebooks. Companies do not like to put up with faults/failures, and have usually huge contracts with HP/Dell/Lenovo to provide laptops for the entire workforce. If a manufacturing flaw or issue occurs across a business notebook model, usually it results in tens of thousands of recalls, and thus the manufacturer loses a tonne of money. The company will also likely move to another manufacturer as a result, and so the manufacturer will lose out on a very lucrative contract.


So as a result, business notebooks generally have noticeably higher build quality than consumer notebooks. Some of then even have longer warranties. For example if you buy a T/W/X series ThinkPad, you often get a 3-year next business day, ONSITE warranty (yes they will come to your home and repair/replace it on the spot). My X240 has this, and even if it breaks (unlikely - ThinkPads are durable), I don't have anything to worry about.

There was a recent spate of 'flash for cash' collisions whereby someone would flash you out on a junction then promptly drive into you denying all knowledge followed by the usual neck pains.
No matter how much they flash you only pull out when you feel it is safe and legal to do so.


Yet another reason to have a dash-cam.

Learner drivers really do test my patience sometimes Ian - especially the ones that continuously stall, or toddle along at a snail's pace in rush hour traffic on important roads.
