  1. Personally I'm a fan of the Aeropress, simple, reliable and only bio waste
  2. Not sure how well known this is but I'd be worried about their pension obligations, I interviewed for a position at the town hall a year or two ago and they were happy to talk about the final salary pension scheme they have. I was actually shocked that such a thing still existed.
  3. I used to get a 110mb connection in Ballabeg, but ramsey is a pretty consistent 25mb
  4. So do we openly just not punish criminals anymore? https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/woman-pleads-guilty-to-nine-charges-including-stealing-a-car/ Just checking as I've seen a nice car I'd like and I was thinking of just taking it instead of paying for it, what's the worst that can happen? I might get a slap on the wrist?
  5. There's one in the settings menu of the youview box
  6. Realistically, what is the steam packet worth without the user agreement?
  7. What would have been handy is to put the time that each section is closed on the map
  8. Try turning off your fridge or freezer, I had the same thing and used a sound analyser app to track it down. Turned out to be the fridge on completely the opposite side of the house
  9. http://www.safecyclingiom.com/vulnerable-user-legislation/4588946459
  10. Its not so much the overtaking distance that's the real issue, its the wanting to make drivers default responsible for any accident involving a cyclist and so have to prove their innocence. Guilty until proven innocent?
  11. just the small detail of being next to a bend in the road
  12. OK, now I know who's standing in my area, but apart from the Manx Labour woman non of the candidates have stated (on either of the above links) what they stand for!
  13. Which constituency are you in? Arbory
  14. Is there a central list of candidates for each seat? I'd like to know what my options are and be able to do some research.
  15. From her Facebook page, I'm watching Fair Tax Town on BBC2. I'm not expecting plaudits, but I am hoping it'll spur our "Government" into working towards truly sustainable jobs, and economy, for our people - not ones that rely on an outdated model that relies on denying local economies elsewhere the taxes they need to look after their people. It's not a reliable model - we won't be allowed to get away with this nonsense for much longer - and we do a disservice to our bright-eyed boys and gals working in the international finance industry, if we don't ditch this immoral model and work towards truly valuable economics. Translated: I have no idea what I'm talking about but I got to go on telly!
