  1. Not being funny but unless you allow technology to be proven then progress is never made forward. CLEARLY a combi is a better option for the environment and your wallet since over time on conventional systems you certainly find yourself heating two tanks of water a day, when indeed some days you may well use very little domestic hot water. For example, a person like me with an electric shower and a cold feed dishwasher will in fact not require ANYTHING LIKE the amount of hot water produced in a day on a conventional system. In fact some days I suspect I could well use virtually n
  2. Went on the Calder and Hebble up towards Hebdon Bridge last year on a canal boat and the guy leasing them said the same - from the boat you do not need any licence OTHER than a rod licence. People and clubs only buy banks rights in the main.
  3. If I was plumbing for a cheapish 1995/96 era car I'd go the Primera http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/1996-NISSAN-PRIMERA-...1QQcmdZViewItem I owned one of these and as well as being very smooth - even at 130,0000 on the clock in the 7 years my dad and I owned it (from virtually new) it never broke down, never failed an MOT (except on emissions once), always gave fairly solid economy, and to be honest we are 'car abusers' - it's certainly not a family tradition to believe in regular servicing of vehicles etc just as a matter of course (probably had 2 services in 7 years). The other thing is
  4. Hi Folks http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Browning-First-Premi...1QQcmdZViewItem If you are an AN member (or know one) drop us a line via eBay and we'll elasticate the pole FOC - cannot say fairer than that. Truthfully 38 sets left tonight - we are listing 30 on eBay, have them on our site as well. Ian, Manager UKFT
  5. Ah - one of the benefits of living near Lincoln is you get to see the displays and training quite often - in fact - at a funeral service I attended at the crem last year the red arrows were doing a display at the same time (nice tribute!). Boots for soldiers in Iraq or the Red Arrows then I'm afraid they get the chop - However - I will say keep them because you damn well know with this government if they save money somewhere then they'll only bloody squander it on something more useless anyway.
  6. I don't think Vaughaun should ever have returned to the side, much in the same way I feel taking Giles to australia for the ashes set us on a doomed path as well. The England team is all about the Establishment and not about class or skill - whilst I admit I feel Nixon has performed well in his position, the fact they gave Chris Read (widely accept as being the best keeper in the UK, with a very good batting history at Nottingham), just TWO matches to prove himself when Jones was dropped proves something isn't quite right. Jones, meanwhile, was given 18 months to prove himself as a batsm
  7. Got some cheap Fladen Charters in stock, 14ft - Fladen Vantage 14ft Beachcasters (cork handle, carbon blanks - much nicer), and if you want a notch higher some Quantum 14ft Intro Surfs. PM
  8. I can see last weeks argument rearing up again folks!
  9. Hi With Cory - any proprietor (bricks and mortar or otherwise) has the right to refuse to sell to anyone for any reason. Typically in T&C's you'll find a clause along the lines of 'we reserve the right to refuse any sale from this site for whatever reason'. Specifically most will cary a clause for technical or pricing misrepresentations which will ensure customers are refunded in the occurence of such an event.
  10. Labour support isn't as -high- as you'd of thought - only 3% true voting difference at the last general election which represents a real difference proportionally of something like 19 seats in the houses of parliament - technically with the libs, that would be a hung parliament. However, given we don't have proportional representation the bizarre democracy we have allows a bunch of cretins who took no more than 3% above their biggest competitor to hold 50% more seats in the house of commons and thereby have a fairly clear run to pass whatever crazy laws and rules they feel like. Propor
  11. I think about 20 quid for 100 fish, but that is for inch long fish I think - not much more than fry - but if you get a good survival rate then it's excellent value. I think for trout the pond needs plenty of aeration - some big koi piston driven aerators are probably a good idea.
  12. Gravel Gravel Gravel When I emptied my pond last year I took the opportunity whilst cleaning to add about 3 inches of gravel to the bottom - I bought a washed (chalk free) white pebble from the builders yard. I needed quite a bit, but it pretty much traps silt down on the bottom and stops the fish stirring it up. It also has the added benefit of providing a breeding ground for bacteria, to breakdown the trapped waste AND baby fishies/tadpoles etc can use the nooks and crannies for cover. Looks nice as well - fish show up better against the white background. Ian

  14. Hmmm, being awfully cavalier with a lot of peoples lives methinks. Yes, we think we are right, and Iran clearly think they are. This isn't a bloody pub quiz though and I think the British public ought to have a bit more common sense than Taking our government or security services word for this (i.e. remember Iraq had nukes) and Taking the Iranians word for it either. What ought to be reported is their welfare and what is being done to secure them. Frankly if they were kidnapped in bloody dover it would be irrelevant - the important issue is how to get them back and ensure their s
  15. Both Gerrard and Lampard are probably our biggest issues BUT both are world class. To be fair you are putting what are essentially two very selfish players in midfield and neither plays well with the other. It has to be said folks, that lampard and gerrard are both exceptional at the 'running at a couple of players and cracking it from 20 yards' trick, and as I said, both up there in the top few in the world at that game, BUT we are missing a central holding player who can pass the ball. In my opinion strikers ought to be strikers, midfielders ought to support them - correct me i
  16. With newt and cory on this one I think. If you had children that could comprehend the nature of the question to start with then the answers really ought to not be that shocking - I suspect the question is more shocking to the adult than the answer to the child. The realities of it are we have 14 year old girls knocked up on every soap programme before 8pm (some before 7pm!) - this is a 'real' problem, in the 'real' world as well and one could 'certainly form an argument' that the prudish mentality within the UK (which is world reknown) certainly doesn't combine well with the rebellious na
  17. Interesting about the money thing - the old 'i won it on a track from a trackside bookie' used to be the defence for 'unexplained' cash (mainly to taxmen I suspect!). These days I am not sure if it washes BUT under the human rights act you may well have Europe on your side since you probably have a right to privacy and a right to not incriminate yourself in a court of law (that exists to a certain extent in our statute anyway). Therefore wether they can truly confiscate it legally until you can explain it I am not sure. All this was dressed up as anti-terrorism crap - when clearly
  18. No idea if they would release it or indeed still have it, but sky did run a rather difficult to read live manuscript on their sky news service I think (or time delayed, not sure). I am guessing it's a research thing, in which case even if you cannot get it online you may well be able to write them a nice letter asking for help.
  19. The whole is it suitable debate is fantastic - you take this for what it is - a picture designed as a joke, with a definite sexual slant. Does that make it offensive? To some maybe, to me no. Funny, and not pointing at anyone on here, but there are pictures on our news everyday which show far bigger atrocities to human-kind than can possibly be explained away by parents, yet something like this, which lets face it, all teenagers are going to get to eventually stirs up a certain level of angst. I was toying with buying a new Nissan in the next few months (or a Honda Jazz, still n
  20. The thing I really don't get is why steal something for no gain i.e. just to vandalise the bloody thing - it was a very nice example of what was a very finely engineered VFR (one of the early cam driven models - massively over engineered by Honda due to their embarrasing early failiures). I am sure she will be fine, and possibly exceed her former glory AND to be honest it's not even the money which annoys me - I could do without losing £300, but it could have been worse and in the grand scale of things it just means watching the pennies for a few weeks. It's the bloody time - I lost
  21. OK, so two days before Christmas someone smashed my car window and nicked my GPS receiver (thanks a bunch) - a pain in the arse, but the insurance company covered the glass FOC (no damage to my claims bonus) and the GPS gadget I bought in the sales - annoying, but not the end of the world. Well on Saturday night some little sod (or group thereof) nicked my VFR750 off my drive, took it to a local park, absolutely smashed all the panels and fairing and then tried to torch it. No attempt made to start the vehicle as far as I can see (i.e. locks etc in perfect condition - no screwdriver ma
  22. In terms of the legal issues - unless the accident caused damage to property or another vehicle/person then I think according to the highway code is not a notifiable offence (might be wrong, but putting a car in a ditch I don't think requires reporting, and if it was removable easily then it most likely wasn't a serious smash). Secondly aiding and abetting is all well and good but surely the prosecution would have the burden of proof to prove you knew he was over the limit. Just because someone smells of beer doesn't legally make them over the limit (Before anyone starts I am looking at
  23. RIP Bob Woolmer The CCTV from what I can gather has had to be digitised which needed specialists for - NEWT can probably confirm this but it may well be each floor on the hotel recorded frames on a rotational basis which creates a very jumbled video recording where every nth frame correlates to one camera - basically this needs to be extracted and put back together, and then posssibly some form of noise reduction etc if post processing is needed - you may well lose a day, especially if the equipment doing the recording isn't spot on. In terms of strangulation I am no expert BUT belie
  24. OK - regardless of what happened at the time (did they or didn't they cross the border), clear our inaction at preventing the incident at the time indicates that we were probably in the wrong. The obvious worry from a battleship/carrier captains point of view is that an immediate reaction could trigger nuclear war if indeed Iran have that capability (or indeed sympathetic allies that do). One thing is clear is that the way the incident is being handled is very useful propaganda for our government. Basically 'our lads were doing nothing wrong and arrested at gunpoint' - if an Irani
  25. Ken mate, they were certainly not rude comments, but a fairly open debate - I think both sides constructred arguments without being slanderous or ageist. Line drawn under it though.... Clearly people fall both sides of the fence on the issue.
