  1. Having met the uppitty girl from Captial I doubt it. What has that got to do with The Mailbox? Well at the time the Mailbox did not exist and in conversation staff at Captial were referring to the future restaurant as 'our' restaurant. But you have ties to the place obviously so will know the facts, and on reflection they did seem to be spouting all sorts of exaggerated bollocks. Having met the uppitty girl from Captial I doubt it.

  3. Are you sure the owners were difficult and not the other way round?
  4. What high prices are you guys talking about? Guinness £3-00 Peroni £4-00 Wine £3.95 Don't call that expensive!
  5. The building is called Capital House which is the first clue and Capital International, Treasury Services, Fund Services et al are on the third floor so I would guess that Capital International owns the building. According to www.themailbox.im it is supposed to have something for everyone and the menu is centred on a cutting edge meat and seafood grill - not sure these statements are accurate!
  6. The menu's change daily and so you can't get an idea of what they do... I have eaten in there and after spemding £26 for lunch, and this was only my part of the bill, I left hungry! Mind you that £26 did cover £4.25 for a pint of lager!!! I never saw a price list with the beer on it which I think is a breach of the licensing laws... please correct Will not be eating there again in a hurry - Bar George can do me a lunch for two for that price and with a pint of Guinness, with change! Food is over-priced for my liking and portion sizes are far too small... A Queenie starter for instan
  7. How many times have you ever seen someone load a game onto a PC in a shop to prove the customer right or wrong??? It'll never happen... could you imagine going through a full DVD install or three CD-ROMs out the back in GAME? Resort back to the customer is always right, pack them off with a nice refund and they'll come back happy to spend it another day!
  8. This is interesting... Sale of Goods Legislation - DTI Consumer Guide (pdf) You don't need a reciept within the first six months and the retailer has to prove the goods are faulty not the consumer!
  9. It's not on the back, we've checked... They could have sent it out in a mailshot along with their regular updates to Reward Card holders, that would have at least been a start... Or perhaps actually making their posters a little bit clearer in respect to their returns policy rather than giving the impression that it covers all purchases... Or even something at the till or even an leaflet that they could put in with all purchases prior to the policy change... Any more?
  10. Sorry typo, Geforce 4 MX... 'We reserve the right' - not categorically deny... 'discretion' - where they see fit, not a blanket refusal... mmight it even include 'in the consumers best interests' My point is that if you make a policy change, from that which was in place previously then you need to inform the consumer correctly... and not at the till point when you have come to return a game that the staff at the time of purchase said you could... I was only championing a colleagues plight... And, thought people may be interested...
  11. Dear Customer Service Assistant, I fear that one of my points is being lost about buying PC games as presents, and those that are not technically minded that would't know the difference between an ATI Radeon x800 and a Geforce 4 MMX. Another is that in fact the information regarding returns is not fully on display in your stores or on the back in any detail on the till receipts, certainly not to any extent to offer advice as to this situation regarding PC software, and who ever reads the back of a till receipt anyway? I have opened this conversation up to a group of colleagues & G
  12. Not sure they actually care about "after-sales" any more?! ________________________________________________________ Dear Sir, Thank you for your email. As stated in my previous email, a PC game can be returned at any time if it is faulty. However if a game does not meet specification of a PC this is not a fault. Specifications are clearly stated on the outside of the packaging and can therefore be checked before the purchase is made. Also as stated in my previous email this policy has been agreed by trading standards. The policy is stated in all stores and on the back of the till rece
  13. Here is something that it would appear no everyone knows about Game _____________________________________________________________ A website user has submitted the following query: I was wondering if you can help me as I recently purchased Doom III at your Worthing store and a colleague of mine bought something recently from your Isle of Man store in Douglas and something was said to us, although nothing has been confirmed in writing, in your terms and conditions or in-store to say that this is correct. The situation is this, when I bought Domm III, I was informed that you do not

    Doom 3

    Got so infuriated with the flippin' torch thing, even with the duct tape mod it still got on my nerves... Looks very pretty, but too much running around in the dark!
  15. Codemasters Web Site For the £17.99 pre-release offer - click here This not only looks good, but at this price is practically begging you to buy it... With over 23 events and in excess of 300 stages, this is going to be one major rollercoaster ride of a game! Take the lead and progress to more powerful cars, taking Part Tests to win upgrades, and accelerate into different classes of championships in new countries. Through the 23 events, with the ultimate goal being to compete at global level, drivers are pummelled through a staggering 300+ stages in cars from 4-wheel drive, 2-wheel dr
  16. Now, now, that's hardly fair... What has Microsoft ever done to deserve such harsh criticism?! []
  17. News source: Here are the details from: Microsoft Windows Update Page September 2004 Security Update for JPEG Processing (GDI+) Published: September 14, 2004 The GDI+ security update for September 2004 addresses newly discovered issues in JPEG processing technology. This issue affects software that supports this image format, including some versions of Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft developer tools. If you have any of the listed software installed on your computer, you should install the related update. Depending on the software you are using, you may need to
  18. Microsoft released a patch for its latest "critical" rated security flaw affecting its Windows, Office and developer tools software programs, the company said Tuesday. Separately, the world's largest software maker was dealt a setback after the Internet Engineering Task Force decided not to adopt Microsoft's e-mail sender ID standard that would make it easier for internet service providers to block unwanted junk e-mail. Microsoft, which now releases security bulletins and updates on a monthly cycle, said that its latest software flaw stems from the way its software processes images in the
  19. Clearly they weren't paying attention otherwise they would never have gone in?! PS I think you'll also find that one of the C&E boats was actually given to them by the Scottish Authorities as a thank you for help on a combined crimebusting exercise, and in fact the authorities had difficulty trying to warrant the gift as it was too expensive to maintain and fuel...
  20. So, explain why there are an excess of traffic poles in the island's depots? By the way, my source works for the DOT!
  21. I understand that it's a foregone conclusion that the limits will be in by the start to middle of next year... My sources tell me that there is a rather large consignment of traffic sign poles in the various depots around the island, and that these poles weren't just bought for refurbishment of existing...
  22. To recap: The xbox game is the storyline lead-up to Pitch Black, then there was Dark Fury and now the new film due out later this month... Having played the demo of the xbox game recently, the game looks pretty good...
  23. I didn't feel it was that bad... and where was Judi Dench? There is a sequel being made, and from the reviews of the Xbox game it may, apparently, give Doom III a run for it's money!
