  1. Have a look at the choices on the Co-Op site What is Mx? A gender neutral title for those who don't to reveal their gender apparently.
  2. NeverAgain

    Annual Leave

    I'm currently entitled to 16 days holiday, that excludes bank holidays, which in reality means I'll probably have around 21 as I have to work some bank holidays. I really can't imagine having 28 days holiday excluding bank holidays that is just nuts, basically you only work for 11 months of the year!
  3. I wonder why they've made these changes? Basically you can now only send a large letter/birthday card, previously you could send a dvd, it will affect many sellers on Ebay also.
  4. Its working ok here, Its basically Guy Martin saying he did a 22 minute lap of the TT course on open roads, with air temperature reading 1 or 2 degrees and that he reached 180mph along the Sulby straight. No such thing as bad publicity I suppose.
  5. I'll take your word for it, the gum clinic on high alert over all this slit spillage? Fathers day will cause the biggest confusion, its thought hundreds could be affected.
  6. I really don't think he's done himself any favours, at 1 or 2 degrees Celsius the possibility of ice at 5.30am is highly likely, 180mph along Sulby straight? not a fucking chance, he'd of driven into the back of a gritter as they normally leave the yard around that sort of time.
  7. I'm not surprised. They have removed a non-slip 'Shellgrip' type of surface and replaced it with a smooth one. I wonder why as the corner isn't, or wasn't, a particular accident black spot. Its not even that smooth, quite a ridge getting onto the new tarmac compared to the old surface, perhaps they just laid the tarmac on top of the old shellgrip?
  8. Nothing worse than a toxic slit in peel, plenty of them about and no doubt highly contagious. Many of these slit busters are also gut busters so be careful, nothing worse than a toxic heavy slit spillage all over your highway.
  9. I do the same thing on PAYG with Sure although I've noticed they now charge you to top up via your phone, used to be free. I only noticed as I ran out of credit completely and it wouldn't let me call the number.
  10. I've always bought my laptops online through various companies, never had an issue and was substantially cheaper than buying 'local'.
  11. What are you wanting from a laptop? http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptops-netbooks/laptops/laptops/lenovo-g50-15-6-laptop-silver-10109036-pdt.html#cat-0 http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptops-netbooks/laptops/laptops/hp-pavilion-15-p154sa-15-6-laptop-purple-grey-10029766-pdt.html
  12. No I found the video, was uploaded 14th March : http://manx.net/tv/mt-tv/watch/71312/google-iom-hq
  13. You sure it wasnt April 1st?
  14. Firstly welcome to the forum, don't be put off by anything said on the forum, you really need to come to the IOM and see what its actually like for yourself, it's only then you'll know if it'll ever be the right or wrong choice for you. Personally I can no longer afford to live on the IOM, I've effectively been priced out of the market, but if you've got a well paid job, some savings and enough to buy a house over here then you'll probably find the IOM cheaper to live than many parts of the UK. Steam packets fares (commonly known here as steam racket) are expensive but only if you take a car, a foot passenger return is cheap and many airlines are offering flights to main UK airports for around £50-£100 return
  15. I dunno about that, the mountain road in particular is full of bikers every weekend, loads of people 'go for a drive' when they're at a loose end. All the fancy cars that are about, they mean more to their owners than just being a mode of transport. You may well be correct, without statistics I can't prove either way. However I wouldn't have thought car/motorcycles would cause the same level of inconvenience but again I can't prove that either.
