  1. I think the requirements will be more and less The regulators will need to be sure that grows will be fully controlled for quality and auditability. Glass houses are generally for lower grade grows, as the IOM initially is looking at medical grade for export it's implicit that high quality and provenance are a what they hope will set up apart from other jurisdictions.
  2. +1 for "The Other Place" I'd also strongly recommend "The Ravioli House." There is a new chef at the Habour Bistro who has a good local reputation so that might also be worth a shout. If you are prepared to go out to Lezayre; "Cafe Rosa" is pretty good.
  3. My son is after a VR setup for his PS4 but before I shell out for one I would like to test drive it. No shops seem to have one set up as a demo which leads me to think that they might be a bit naff. If anyone has one I can borrow (or one for sale) could they let me know? Cheer
  4. I can't find a reference to online gambling, just to gambling. I have only seen the report in the OP so I am guessing that some other report contains more information as to the nature of his gambling.
  5. Thanks, for the info. As for the double NAT you can normally get round that by placing your console in a DMZ, if you are gaming on a PC I can see why you wouldn't want to expose that via a DMZ though. I'll give it a try and see how it works.......
  6. @David2716 is that for an unlimited service?
  7. Following my glowing report of the 4G service, things have gone down hill, I have a 40 Mb/s service and the following are indicative of the service I actually receive: http://www.speedtest.net/result/7274420564 http://www.speedtest.net/result/7273287028 http://www.speedtest.net/result/7237785827 http://www.speedtest.net/result/7237416271 http://www.speedtest.net/result/7237288250 http://www.speedtest.net/result/7235860272 Which is painful at best, time to return to fixed line 4 Mb/s I guess..........
  8. On MF there's a lot more than one!
  9. I'm not sure that statement is correct. I think that other computer service providers have 27001 and 9001 a quick bit of Googleing tells me that Manx technology group and wimanx (not sure if wimanx qualify as computer service company even with their current radio ads) have 27001 and 9001. I think that synapse have some iso certs. I could poke at Google for longer to check on other companies but it's getting pretty late. Are you sure about argon and IT works?
  10. You clearly have never had to listen to my wife tell you about her day at work.
  11. Last minute? Last minute nothing. Four days until Christmas. Enjoy a couple of days relaxing and get on it later.

    New Rules

    Although I have sympathy for the mods, I wonder if closure is 'letting the buggers win.' Even curtailing new account creation might be a step too far as without new voices the forums would die off anyway. I agree that there are too many trolls, they will be time consuming and generally irritating for everyone (even more so for the mods) but I have a suggestion (or even a few of) on how best to tackle them. 1. All users (existing and new) must be validated KYC style, think people are less likely to troll if their real identity is known, also will reduce the number of multi acco
  13. @maynragh From what I have heard this is a voluntary liquidation. On that basis all outstanding debts should be settled or re-saleable stock returned. Ultimately it's a real shame for the staff and any recent car buyers. It's questionable if Rammo could really ever support 2 fuel stations but I have been told the shop at Raymotors was very good.
  14. I have a unit on test and it's fair to say it's smashing for the money and much better than the copper service I can get out in the goonies. All the TV in our house is delivered over the internet (netflix / amazon / Iplayer / Sky go) and it works perfectly. Skype struggles a little (I'm guessing latency) or we might simply be running out of bandwidth. It's worth nothing that the 40Mbit is theoretical and the actual speeds that the modem reports are variable. Unlike with a copper service the modem doesn't connect at whatever speed and then stay connected at that speed. the

    Dash cam

    As most folks own smartphones what's the point of spending any more than a fiver or so on a cheapo dash mount? There are a number of freebie apps that you can use for this purpose.

    UKIPT IoM 2

    He won't be too "gutted" adding over 30k to his bank balance. Locals took home about 50k from the main event, a local got 2nd in the PLO. Quite a few got in the prizes (aka cashed) in a few of the side events including a local win in the first ever combined chess/poker tournament. All in all it was a great weekend for local poker and the local economy.

    UKIPT IoM 2

    There are currently 7 IOM residents in the final 40. The current chip leader (with a HUGE chip lead) is a local. There should be at least 1 local at the final table. Even if you are not a poker fan the tension in the Villa today will be unreal. If you have time (and are 18+) then a visit to the Villa to rail the locals would be a great boost to them (us.) Everyone still in the event is taking home at least £1660 in prize money and the winner scores over 65k. If you like poker there are still a couple of tournaments to play. There is a plo double chance and a no limit hold em on today (I t
  19. I can save you some time; She'll be in the Plough Ramsey downing pints and muching pork scratching every night she's not playing.
  20. I suspect that you will be able to get PLO cash games running too.
  21. The online satts are vile, no arguements there. The casino have offered (kinda) to run some live £110 10 seat events if there is enough interest. There is an online manx poker 'home game' on pokerstars that should have 2 seats (one very kindly donated by pokerstars) details on the FB page below Facebook has a group that will give you a number of routes in (https://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/groups/iompoker/) to the main event. Oh, there is also a rumor that Daniel Negreanu will be (back) here in some capacity for this event. Get in and play to show support for the event, ther
  22. Cyclists are bound by the same laws as any other vehicle user. There is provision in the road traffic act for cyclists. If you feel aggrieved by the actions of ANY road user, be they car driver, cyclist or biker, report them to the police.
  23. I have no idea who has bought what, if the new owner is a management buyout, a local (or not local) investor or another computer company, I am kinda curious though The fortunate thing here is that the jobs have (potentially) been saved. I'm sure no one on here (or anywhere) would want to see X number of people getting laid off.
  24. Get yourself to Ramsey on a Saturday morning and on the quay you will find Bryan Radcliffe's fruit and veg 'outlet' Bryan is a farmer from somewhere or other 'up North' who sells his own produce (and other stuff) at very attractive prices. It's pretty obvious that some of the stuff he sells is not home grown (not many bananas are getting grown over here AFAIK) but lots is. There is none of that uniformed veg that you often find in supermarkets (at a premium price) just the way it came out of the ground. It's not everyone's cup of tea having to wash their own carrots, but give Bry a try onc
