  1. Just been looking at Loganair flights IOM to Liverpool. The flight I looked at was to be flown by NyxAir (from Estonia) on behalf of Loganair. NyxAir have 4 Saab aircraft and their average age is 30 years (Plane spotters.net). On their website (www.nyx.ee)their certificate to operate flights in the UK expired on 31 Jan 2020. Is this what the Island is looking for to cover it's travel needs?
  2. If you get calls from three mobiles in the UK and they are on PAYG, the costs are to increase more than 50% It's now cheaper for some UK mobiles to ring USA rather than the Island.

    My original post was out of date (Sorry) - here is the latest from London Transport
  4. I never thought I would find a survey about ferry costs which Steam Packet would be happy with, but this survey crude as it may be does show our ferry costs as quite reasonable. The full report is on the following link http://naturenet.net/blogs/2016/09/09/ferries/
  5. I wonder if IOM Banks will continue to allow the use of the current £ coins after 15th October? I also wonder if our coin machines (parking etc) will be upgraded so that UK visitors can pay for their parking? BBC News: "The round £1 will be legal tender alongside the new, more-secure coin until 15 October. The public are being urged to use their current £1 coins or bank them before they lose their legal tender status."
  6. Just asked Treasury if they are going to do anything about the new coin and the answer is as follows: "Thank you for your email. We currently do not have any plans to move to the new 12 sided £1 coin but we will be monitoring, with interest, the introduction of them in the UK next year. You may be aware that from April next year a new mint will be supply Isle of Man coins (https://www.gov.im/news/2016/aug/05/tower-mint-to-produce-isle-of-man-coins/)and we will be discussing future designs of all Manx coins with them. Kind regards Investment and Banking Section Treasury F
  7. Been over the bridge this morning, got a long way to go before this is finished even the road has yet to have it's final surface.it is also quite narrow and I can see problems for busses and lorries getting over. Two lads were doing some work; I don't think this job will be compleated before Christmas.
  8. Did I miss their press release - just got my telephone bill from MT and notice that from 1st September their line rental charge is to increase by 3.65% an extra 50p each month from almost every household on the Island will look very good on their books!
  9. Yep look at the webcam it's in and unloading.
  10. Well I am pleased to say that the battery arrived this morning; it had no special packaging (just a little plastic wallet); clearly it is not helpfull to say you live in the IOM; just lie and say you are a UK post code. A sad reflection of the times and clearly from the comments to this post a growing issue. Time we started digging a tunnel to the UK!
  11. Thanks BigDave will give it a try. WOOPS - tried to order but would not ship to the Island "Sorry! We only currently ship to the UK and countries within the European Union. Please contact us if you think there is an error." OK order placed and accepted now I live in the UK. Thanks BigDave.
  12. I did select a UK supplier as many eBay companies will not post to the Island and if you look at the time for delivery you can assess if it is being posted from China. The phone is a Motorola Moto g (1st gen).
  13. I have ordered a new battery for my mobile phone from ebay but it seems that none of the postal services will deliver such an item to the Island? Got the following email from Ebay: Dear customer, How are you? Hope you everything goes well. We received notice from our shipment part ,we feel so sorry. the shipping department told us that the shipping carrier can't send the battery package to your address,they tried many other shipping carriers,but none of them accept the Li-lon battery package, We exactly want to do this business with you. But in order not to delay your order so long ti
  14. Been running Windows 10 since 29th, seems very good smooth and reasonably fast. Had no problems running already installed software and even various odd drivers have been found and are working. It will need a couple of tweeks over the next few weeks (Cortana does not recognise my country {stated as UK} and the default email client is a bit iffy (adds characters to my password). Very happy with it so far!
