  1. "I was looking at him, sort of going, oh, he's not too bad. Like you might look at a man across the bar at a nightclub," she said. Classy, that one.

    Can anyone recommend a decent hotel near Dublin airport?
  3. Best thread since 'Bumsex Bumsex Bumsex' Keep it up!
  4. If you're going to be pedantic, 'Tyne-Tees' is not a derby!
  5. Sorry, but that bit in bold is bollocks. Look up the history of the league in the last 10,20,50 or 100 years. Take your pick. Unless you're counting the old 3rd Division. How many times have you won the league? How many times have you won the FA cup? How many times have you appeared in the Champions League? How many times have you finished above us in the Premier League? Sorry, but even Sunderland, as much as I despise them are a lot more respectable than the Smogmonsters.
  6. Must be lonely with all those empty seats around him
  7. Boro-Newcastle is not a derby match. Middlesbrough is 'just a small town in Yorkshire.' The only north east derby is Newcastle-Sunderland.
  8. FFS I had 12mbit in Poland four years ago for less than 25 quid a month with no restrictions on usage. ...Cue the MT apologists who will bleet that it costs $$$$$$$$$ to get internet across the Irish Sea.
  9. Another reason to stick to or roll back to XP. Can't believe what a real mess they are making of Vista. And in the meantime XP SP3 is reputed to run up to twice as fast as Vista SP1. Story from BBC NEWS: http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/2/hi/technology/7205059.stm
  10. Are you sure you didn't pop into the chemist next door by mistake? No, that's the co-op, smarty pants
  11. 3 phonecalls later I got it sorted. Apparently T-Mobile had deactivated the roaming. They then switched it back on. It worked for a day and a half, then on the train, half way from Moscow to Astana the bastards deactivated it again!!
  12. Terrace Chippy used to be good. Used to be good. Now it is bloody awful. Went back to the IOM last week and what they served up was rank. The 'cod' was not cod, the chips were greasy and the mushy peas tasted of soap. Heartburn ensued.
  13. Stopped with Champix for about 2 months, with horrid side-effects. Made the mistake of thinking that I had beaten it, so stopped taking the tablets at about day 30. Then about a month and half later, suddenly the urge came back almost out of the blue one day.. Been on 5-7 a cigs a day since. Here in Russia, everyone smokes, and fags cost 30p a packet, so the social and economic reasons to quit are on the back burner. However, it is minus 20 outside, and I can't smoke indoors, so unless I want hypothermia I have to keep the fags to the occasional! Fucking horrible stinking habit, but I
  14. no prizes for guessing if her 'technical support' worked.
  15. Canada! That's a proper country! Cheap as chips with the Canadian dollar being so low against the pound. Plus you can fly really cheap from Belfast with Zoom.
  16. Went to GSM only on my Nokia n95, tried selecting Pronto manually and automatically and it gave 'no access'.
  17. Thanks for the replies I do realise that I will be roaming. Only here for a week and wanted to use it for incoming texts and missed calls. Using my Pronto phone for outgoings. Just tried the card in another phone, also without success, so there's nowt up with the mobile.
  18. I know it's not exactly 'Computing and Internet', but close enough to get some help, I hope. Right, I bought a pay as you go Virgin Mobile simcard last week in the UK. Worked fine over there. Since I've been back on the Island though, I get an 'Emergency Calls Only' message where the 'Pronto' should be. Checked the Virgin site, but no help there. I have got credit, and the I know the phone (Sony Ericsson W910i) isn't simlocked as I've used it with several operators. Is there anything glaringly obvious that I've missed? Thanks
  19. 70 mph winds and 7 metre waves? Super Seacat to the rescue!
  20. The internet in the gulf is pants anyway, so I doubt if anyone even noticed. Got back from eight months in Abu Dhabi last week and MT speeds are amaaaaazing in comparison. That's how shit slow it actually is out there
