  1. From another ex-BeeManx Super crew... Sad, sad loss - Alex and I use to work together in the good old days of Beemanx.com, downstairs in the Bee Media 'engine room' with the other Webi Knights riding the huge Internet bubble before it burst. Farewell friend - greatly missed. RIP big man... I can feel a bacon bap coming on in his honour
  2. Unfortunately, its a small island and news always travelled fast, which is even quicker these days with the likes of Facebook etc. Sad, sad loss - Alex and I use to work together in the good old days of Beemanx.com, downstairs in the Bee Media 'engine room' with the other Webi Knights riding the huge Internet bubble before it burst.

  3. Well, I was hoping the rumour maybe true. It appears that Keigs is running down its Apple stocks as its a re-seller and not a full blown seller and therefore hardly making anything on selling them & M&S does not seem to stock Macs anymore. Does Douglas or the island need an Apple Store? Only time will tell. Love or hate Apple, you don't have to go in, you don't have to buy. Walk on the other side of the street if you must, but I bet nearly everybody would go in at least once just to look, its human nature. Regardless of what people think of Apple products or whether its an open or closed OS or the price of the laptops etc, I have had several trouble free years with my Macs. It starts up in a flash, does it exactly I want it to do and closes down in a blink of an eye. I don't have to really worry about bugs, viruses and other frustrating problems associated with Windows based products. In fact, for peace of mind, trouble free computing day after day Apple is a winner every time and well worth the cost in my opinion. I'm a Mac !
  4. Latest updated on the possible Douglas Apple Store. I have just been told the door handles on the new shop front are the same other Apple Stores ??? What ever that means. I cannot say I really noticed the door handles last time I was in one! Also Keigs are reportedly running down their Apple stock as they are now longer stocking it ??? But as said above, it's probably yet another overprice coffee shop that we don't need.
  5. Probably just wishful thinking on somebody's behalf... However, I heard today that Apple have got the old Waterloo pub in Strand Street and are converting into a new Apple Store... Interesting if true, but does anybody know what is going in that old pub/shop they are doing up at the moment? * Edited because I feel like it....

  13. Golden rule of divorce - don't sign anything official looking until you have had let a lawyer read through it. It might seem a lot to pay, but it is worth it in the long run, otherwise you might sign yourself into one of these clauses that means you have to pay to the end of your days and even beyond the grave. And once in these clauses, it take years and lots of money to get out again if you are lucky. I was one of the lucky ones, but I do read everything before I sign and never sign anything I don't full understand. When I got married, divorce was the furtherest thing from my mind, but things and people change and nearly two decades later I was facing a divorce. Marriage is the easiest thing to get into, but a bugger to get out of, even if it isn't your fault. I am not a big fan of lawyers, and feel they charge to say 'hello' in the street, but for anybody going through a divorce they are must. It will turn dirty, and those who say it won't are only kidding themselves. Other wise, you will end up with your pants around your knees and your pockets empty. I used Sally Bolton from Corlett Bolton, who acted very professionally and saved my bacon from a darn good frying... Every divorce is different, and getting advice from others who have 'been there' is not a good idea as your head ends up full of all sorts of horror stories, 90% of which are not true. Going for a divorce? - get professional advice as at least you will know straight from the horse's mouth
