  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our "Government" into working towards truly sustainable jobs, and economy, for our people - not ones that rely on an outdated model that relies on denying local economies elsewhere the taxes they need to look after their people.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!
  16. condolances to his love ones. Wait what?

    Dash cam

    If anyone is looking for a dash cam, take a look at the YouTube channel "techmoan". He reviews both the expensive ones and the cheaper Chinese alternatives.
  18. Try using a protein shaker, mine has a spring in it which mixes the Joylent up very well.
  19. If its anything R/C related then its worth checking out Hobbyking.co.uk
  20. For anyone looking for an equivalent available in Europe see http://www.joylent.eu/ I'm just waiting for my first order to come in
  21. Who the hell wants to bottle their own piss? Just piss on the cat. I had troubles with cats using my garden as a litterbox so i did a bit of research and they don't like the scent of human piss. I stored up a couple of liters and drizzled it around the border, no more cats, no cost and humane
  22. What is this insistence of the Gov in needlessly spending money to create work for the building sector?
  23. Bottle your own piss and sprinkle it around the borders of your garden.
  24. That may explain why using Sure i had full bars HSDPA on Friday but could only get Edge on Saturday at the show.
  25. I don't understand why people have a problem with this idea of Firemen "sat around doing nothing". They're ready and waiting for the call to come in so they can react as quickly as possible to any emergency. They regularly train, and maintain their equipment again so they are ready for the call. If you were stuck in a burning building or trapped in a crashed car, do you want them there in 5 mins or 15? Also just because the island has been lucky with regard to major disasters in the last few decades doesn't mean we won't need them more than ever, the population is growing and the number of people, buildings, traffic and risks is increasing every year. If there is a genuine case for making savings (a 500k payoff for a chief fire officer was mentioned earlier and if true is a fucking joke) so be it, but NEVER at the cost of the efficiency of the service, if only the rest of the Government could keep vehicles for 15+ year before upgrading.
