  1. Bands that have played in the Isle of Man

    Yep that’s right, they had a cottage in Queen Street, I remember being invited in one Christmas or New Year’s Eve after a few pints in the Glue Pot - great hosts. Gavin Sutherland also lived in a house between Ballasalla and Silverdale in the mid 70’s.
  2. Newspapers

    Thanks Kevster!
  3. Newspapers

    Are there any UK newspapers today?
  4. Peaky Blinders

    Have just finished watching series 1 on Netflix while staying with family abroad. Unfortunately our home broadband isn’t good enough for streaming. Does anyone have series 2 and 3 on DVD they have finished with? Nice bottle of wine or similar available in exchange.
  5. Steam Packet Warns Of Disruption To Sailings

    Maybe my memory is playing tricks but I seem to remember being served roast beef dinners in the dining salon with silver service quality in the late 60's/early 70's?
  6. Use manxnet mail abroad

    Tried that and also SMTP 587 ssl on - neither work? Outgoing mail sticks in outbox. Servers set as mailplusin/ mailplusout.
  7. Use manxnet mail abroad

    It is set up with IMAP to receive mail, but you still have to use SMTP to send?
  8. Use manxnet mail abroad

    Still no go with outgoing email, fortunately I have other accounts whose outgoing SMTP servers I can piggyback onto to send mail from my manxnet account. The issue seems to be with their mailplusout.manx.net SMTP server? MT seem unable to suggest any options other than to keep playing around with port and SSL settings in the hope that one of them may work - I have and none do.
  9. Use manxnet mail abroad

    Thanks for all the comments. I’ve spoken with MT, they say there were problems on Saturday with Apple devices following iOS update and the fix is to remove SSL from outgoing SMTP settings. I’ve done this on both IPad and MacBook with no improvement, to make things worse I now seem to have lost incoming mail as well!
  10. Use manxnet mail abroad

    Can anyone tell me what settings to modify in mail on my ipad so that i can send email whilst abroad? I seem to remember in the past that it involved changing outgoing port settings from the default 465? I use manxnet mailpus and can receive email OK but cannot send through the mail op. I’d prefer not to have to use webmail. Thanks
  11. Lots of naval vessels off the south west of the island at the moment, AIS showing them as from UK, USA, Canada, France and elsewhere.
  12. Ronaldsway rated one star out of 5.

    But you have!
  13. MT slashes UK and EU roaming

    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.
  14. Foo Fighters Glastonbury

    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?
  15. When flights go bad

    According to fees and charges on airport web site the cost would be approximately £1200, how much for 50 hotel rooms?
