    Thats why I use an ad-blocker on my iPad.

    Douglas town square to be hidden from view

    Couldn't the ground be cleared and the hoardings removed altogether? I seem to remember that the ground was open a number of years ago, with TT and Christmas events held on the square.

    Man Vandalises Isle of Man Bank Headquarters

    Surely there is no such thing as 1920s art nouveau? Agree, but llap thinks differently. It's not really classical, or neo classical, no columns as such. The Isle of man loves its columns. These are beauties on Government Building Murray House. Last time I was past there someone had kicked a hole in the bottom of one (they are made with classical hollow fibre glass type stuff) and it was being used as a litter bin. murrayhousesmallimage.jpg And now you might find they're missing altogether.

    It needs demolishing and rebuilding.

    Coastal Paths

    Completely agree. Tried walking that path a few months ago and ended up abandoning it.

    Welcome Centre not welcoming

    Wow, really? If this is true I'm actually gobsmacked! You would have thought that as a Welcome Centre it would open to welcome visitors arriving. Especially during the TT period. Arriving from an evening sailing to find the centre closed isn't exactly welcoming.

    There's a product review for something very similar dating back to Feb 2015 http://www.trustedreviews.com/news/lightning-saver-protects-your-cables-from-wear-and-tear
  10. Yes. I've had this issue too. Have also signed up for Googles U2F implementation, so I'm not completely locked out, but doesn't work on all mobile devices yet.

    Website Overloads

    I haven't been made aware of any issues with the dotet/doits website on Saturday. There was an issue on Friday, but that has been resolved. The webcams have benefited from some work last week and have responded well.

    Big Brother Medical Database?

    I don't understand why many of you are getting so upset about this, especially with the amount of crap many of you will post on facebook without a second thought. Why not just go 'all out' and break out the tinfoil hats?

    Domain For Sale

    Would have been interesting to see what you have used the domain for. The pessimist within me thinks you may have registered this domain to make a quick profit. Good luck with your sale.

    Minister Vows To Get Motorhomes Off Manx Roads

    I drive a taxi at weekends and trying to get on some of our ranks for private cars that ignor the fact that they are ranks. We have tried to phone the police and they say they will come down but dont bother. Could that be the same as Taxi drivers should get tickets if they double park, park in disabled or reserved spaces, stop on no stopping or loading sections or blow their horns at 1am because the are too fucking bone idle to get their fat arses out of the car and knock on the door? Excellent!
