  1. But you have!
  2. So from what I can see I have to increase my current £16.00 per month to £28.00 a month for a new smartroam tariff? Think I'd rather continue to use my Three PAYG sim when in the UK. That cost me £5.00 to top up and I've still got lots of calls/texts left on it.
  3. I'm trying to find last nights Glastonbury performance on Sky but it doesn't show in IPlayer on catch up TV. It does however appear in IPlayer on my iPad? I want to record it to watch later, has anyone found it on their Sky box?
  4. According to fees and charges on airport web site the cost would be approximately £1200, how much for 50 hotel rooms?
  5. Costs: Couple of hours holding fuel with engines running at cruise settings, no thirsty climbs or descents. Extension fees at Ronaldsway. Benefits: Passengers arrived at destination, aircraft and crew in optimum location for next day, expensive hotel and additional transport costs not needed, no need to find new crew for rescheduled flight following diversion, excellent PR for operator. i think you'll find that everyone benefitted, well done to the crew for sticking with it, could do with a few more like that!
  6. I think that Bushy's may have put their prices up too?
  7. Seems to be a recurring problem. I've lost email services intermittently over the last few days. I'm guessing the recent upgrade is still having teething troubles?
  8. There is however a fair use roaming policy which means that if you use it here more than a month they'll switch the roaming deal off. That's the piece of the jigsaw that I hadn't found! Oh well seems like MT it is then!
  9. I currently have a sim only contract with MT and pay £16 per month. I rarely use data and only really use phone and text. I'm considering ditching the MT sim and going over to Vodafone where I understand you can get a similar sim only deal for the same cost or cheaper than MT dependent on how much traffic you want bundled into your monthly charge. The Vodafone Global Roaming deal applies to the IOM which means that you can sue your bundled minutes whilst here and you also have the benefit of your bundled minutes applying in most European countries, unlike MT where it the bundled package doesn't apply when you leave the IOM. Apart from the fact that you would have to pay to get your Vodafone voicemail whilst in the IOM can anyone see any other pitfalls with this? Seems like a no brainer to me?
  10. So far performance is better than before, I don't run games but Photoshop Elements is now much more responsive. Maybe I'll keep an eye open for a cheap second hand motherboard and cpu!
  11. You don't really need to do this - 3.0 Gb/s is fast enough. You should be seeing an improved performance already? Thanks yes I'm already seeing good performance with boot up from off to W10 desktop in 60 seconds.
  12. OK went for a 240GB SanDisk from PC World and have installed it and set up the new system. When running the SanDisk SSD Dashboard software the interface speed is shown as 3.0 Gb/s with a recommendation to connect the SSD to a 6.0 Gb/s capable port. Trouble is I'm running a 5+ year old Compaq Presario desktop that only has SATA II on the motherboard. Has anyone experience of using a PCI add in card to provide SATA III connections? There are loads on eBay but are they any good and compatible with older motherboards?
  13. Long shot but I'm looking for a second hand X-T1 or X-T10?
  14. Ok nearly ready to start the process, I've got a 120GB SSD and will retain my 350GB HDD. Do you think it's worth installing any programs on the SSD in addition to Windows 10? I don't have any games but use Microsoft Office and Photoshop Elements as well as other programs that aren't demanding on the hardware.
  15. Thanks guys, when I install the SSD does that automatically get assigned as the "boot partition i.e. C drive?
