    Taxi Survey

    Lower Fares Flights from Warsaw to Liverpool (before taxes) are often cheaper than a taxi from Ronaldsway to Douglas
  3. ...Try explaining that to our local taxi drivers Whoops, wrong thread
  4. Driving a taxi isn't rocket science. Apart from being able to find some of the more obscure areas of Dandara developments, I'm sure most people here could drive a taxi in their sleep. How is it that van drivers are paid a pittance, but fat sweaty blokes who drive cars can get away with charging over a tenner for a 15 min trip? And then expect a tip. The more taxis on the roads, the better. If people could get a cab after midnight on a Friday night without waiting up to and over an hour, then there would be less trouble on Douglas prom, and less drink-driving.
  5. No, make it Warsaw and I'll come. The beer's better over here
  6. Anyone else here got a Siemens MC65 mobile phone? It's only got one alarm tone available & it's so bloody irritating. Never fails to get me up in a strop. It even survived being chucked at the wall in a rage. The housing needed replacing, but the alarm just kept ringing & ringing
  7. Streambox VCR & Streambox ripper are excellent for downloading Real files from the BBC and converting them into mp3. An added bonus is that it only takes about 5mins to download a 60min programme, instead of recording it in 'real time'. It then takes a further few mins (depending on your PC's muscle) to convert to mp3.
  8. And if you join the queue any later than 4pm, they'll kick you out at 4.45pm so they can get out before 5.
  9. Cheers fellas. Looks like I wasn't overly optimistic after all!
  10. I'll probably get flamed for this, but what the hell.... Been offered a job as a self-employed contractor in England, putting a stop to my Polish adventure. Got a shock when I saw the UK income tax rates these days. As my salary will be in the high-end bracket, would there be any way in which my birth on the Isle of Man could help me out? I know it's a long shot asking this, but I'd like to save a few bob!
  11. Or attempt to make pasties that don't give me heartburn
  12. Turn your caps lock off you bad bad man mm'k
  13. from http://www.boingboing.net Thursday, January 27, 2005 Jailed for using a nonstandard browser A Londoner made a tsnuami-relief donation using lynx -- a text-based browser used by the blind, Unix-users and others -- on Sun's Solaris operating system. The site-operator decided that this "unusual" event in the system log indicated a hack-attempt, and the police broke down the donor's door and arrested him. From a mailing list: For donating to a Tsunami appeal using Lynx on Solaris 10. BT [british Telecom] who run the donation management system misread an access log and s

  17. Bollocks! The customer would use the shop as a free game library & tell all his/her spotty mates about it. Why do you think Aldridge Audio stopped selling games?
  18. Have you recently upgraded to Service Pack 2? That could be the problem, as thousands are having problems with it: http://forum.digitalspy.co.uk/board/showthread.php?t=152032 If you have, I'd go into safe mode, and remove the update through control panel.
  19. I've got a spare invite for the first person to reply to this post!! (But don't be selfish. Only reply if you don't already have one!)
  20. It's a more humane method than trying to kill one with a shovel though
