    Monitors For Sale

    Hey all, I have two monitors available if anyone is interested. 1.)19in CRT monitor. Good picture quality but a bit too bulky for my desk. £50 ono. 2.)18.1in LG Flatron LCD Monitor. This monitor is goosed. It displays no life when plugged in, was working fine one day, not the next. Could be a blown fuse in the monitor, could be something worse. I'm not inclined to try and fix it as it's surplus to requirements now anyway. £30 ono. I'm based in Onchan and have a preference for the buyer to collect. Let me know if you're interested!

    Tt Debrief

    They are if you print them and dump then on the Minister involved and the papers. Only thing politicians care about is their own neck, evidence enough of that in the UK with them all falling hand over fist to be seen as the ones who were first to pay back their expenses.

    Tt Debrief

    Agree with what's been said, the TT wasn't much of a festival this year. The racing is important but it's not the only thing people come over for. The atmosphere and fun is a big draw as well, an atmosphere that was lacking this year, glad I dodged a bullet by not having friends over this year. There's a petition online about it - TT Petition, I've signed up and I encourage others to as well!

    [BBC News] Axed entertainment hits TT trade

    http://www.iomtoday.co.im/news/Bushys-boss...over.5357729.jp Have to say I agree with the above. I've no problem with tax payers not footing the cost - even though there is an argument to be had over the economic benefit to the island and thereby all the tax payers. The problem I have is that if Bushy's were willing to do it themselves and foot the cost why did the DTL refuse?? To me it seems their trying too hard to force the Villa down people's throats as the only place for entertainment in Douglas and that was hardly a success this year with events having to be made free!! I'm all for levelling the playing field but surely that means that businesses in the capital should be able to get permits for road closures, etc to put on events the same as anywhere else in the island??

    Classic (?) Tv Gameshows

    By far the best one of all time was Going For Gold! Especially given the fact that most competitors were put at an immediate disadvantage of not having English as their primary language. A cunning ploy!

    G8, Free Markets And Starving Babies

    An interesting article but a tad too politically biased for my liking. Condeming the G8 deal for the crisis in Niger is hardly fair given that the crisis was well developed before the talks even began. Two things seriously concern me about the situation in Niger. 1.)The media and many aid agencies refused to acknowledge the problem existed until it was too late, this led to a slow response from the public and the current severity of the crisis. 2.)The fact the President of Niger can - with a straight face - say his people are well-fed. It does seem terrible in this "year of Africa" when we were all patting ourselves on the back about how much good we were doing the warnings of disaster in Niger were ignored. More needs to be done to alert and motivate people to help BEFORE the problems get to this stage. Further to that politicians who can make claims like the President Tanja's that end up sacrificing human life for the sake of political face should be forced out of office and into the regions that their political face savings so adversely effect.

    Idiots (not) At Work...

    That's a bit harsh. How do you know those families haven't been saving all year round for their one holiday in the sun? There are also other concerns, not every flight is for a holiday. There was a gentleman on the radio this morning who was trying to get to Australia to visit his dying mother but couldn't due to these cancellations. Are you 'gutted' for him? If living in or around London is such a major hardship then they should move away and as this isn't a dispute about pay what exactly does the minimum wage have to do with it? The actions of the management of the catering company in their handling of this issue were out of order. Firing people via mega phone is never a clever thing if you want workers on your side but it doesn't justify the - illegal - disruption to so many other people's lives. As for you comment about the shareholders. Not every shareholder is a super rich playboy who invests for treats. I know of alot of people who have had to buy shares as an investment for their pensions due to the collapse of their original pension scheme. Yes investing in the stockmarket this way is risky but is it fair that their futures should be on the line due to the knee-jerk reactionary and illegal actions of these workers?
