    And a shelf load of 'Worth It' branded nasal hair trimmers between the children's clothing and confectionary sections. Classy.
  2. We just got a mention from Darling in his pre-budget speech.
  3. They're probably insured which means that the cost of the ransom is passed on to you and me.
  4. No idea. I rue the day I bought my MacBook. Office 2008 just doesn't cut it, especially Excel, and the Bootcamp drivers for the trackpad are dreadful, so using a Windows partition is just as bad. My only saviour is VMWare. If you use Excel on a daily basis, never buy one.
  5. Aer Arann; IOM- DUB- 120 quid for excess luggage for 30 min flight. Continental, Air Canada; Dublin-JFK-Toronto-Thunder Bay- Nowt
  6. Incredible how a four year old thread can be resurrected by a reference to man boobs.
  7. People who read the Mail should be culled.
  8. Colin Powell has just given Obama his support. If McCain wins, then what hope is there for the democrats ever again?
  9. True. As a consequence, all this suddenly puts our constitutional status in the spotlight. Could more either way- become closer to the UK in this difficult climate, or move towards full independence. The latter would leave us very exposed. Very interesting times.
  10. So it's only people who can't be arsed to work which get help to pay their heating bills? This shit stinks. I work full time and I don't get any 'Winter Bonus Payment' from my employer. Maybe I should turn up at the dole office and steal cash from the good people of this Island to feed my drink problem, my fatherless kids, any other fat minger I meet at the dole office who also has fatherless kids and all their friends and family which which can't be bothered to work either. It should only be the one's that have been on the list for 6 months or less. There's no excuse for being un
  11. Essentially the whole UK action since Friday has been about bailing local authorities out otherwise council taxes are going to skyrocket. Thats a political objective - the minute they have that money back I really don't think they're going to be too bothered about IOM account holders. The relationship with the UK should count for something though, I would hope they are lobbying Iceland on our behalf. As Skeddan says if you invoke anti terror laws they are responsible for our defence. Our defence, or the defence of account holders? A lot of the money invested in the IoM might not hav
  12. Giving 'tax havens' cash would probably not go down too well with the UK electorate, and a Labour government wouldn't be too bothered about screwing us over, so I wouldn't hold much hope.
  13. The nasty pre-loaded free trials would irritate the feck out of me. You should get a clean Vista OEM for a system of that magnitude.
  14. And we all know what happened as a result of the depression of the 30s. The geopolitical implications of this are just as worrying as the economic consequences.
  15. Bart: Sorry, Mom, the mob has spoken! All: Monorail! Monorail! Monorail! Monorail! Homer: Mono... D'oh!
  16. I will buy beejay a car of his/her choice for reminding me to buy a ticket
  17. Have they switched off the free wi-fi at the airport? Couldn't get a signal from MT when I was there 10 days ago.
  18. Especially with the extra blade at the back to get under and into the nose! The blades on those might be expensive, but they last for months. Plus if you shop around online, you can get them much cheaper that at Boots or Tesco.
  19. Vista is a lot better if it doesn't come on a system restore disk with loads of crappy bloatware added to it. Nothing worse than spending the first few hours with a PC uninstalling a load of 60 day trials, Napster and other shite which the manufacturer gets paid to burden you with.
  20. Anyone know if it's possible to upgrade from the 'Lite' to the 'Plus' package online?
  21. It is already a great country. Its ordinary citizens actually approve of its current actions. They see it as restoring pride to Russia after the mess of the 90s and the embarrassment that was Yeltsin.
