One of my sailing club members has been seriously ill with cancer, and about three weeks ago it was arranged the nearest broad would be especially opened, and we all went up there. He was helped to a boat that was loaned, by another member.  But he enjoyed a sail with his wife and two children on board and him in control on the helm as we all sailed together...


Today I lowered the flags to half mast...

Around here if someone pulled a stunt like that. they'd have the honchos of the offending company polishing the floor with their foreheads on national TV and the actual projectile delivery operator would find himself seconded to a posting somewhere closer to Russia than Tokyo.

on one hand well done amazon order placed last night at 1800 with free delivery delivered it today but not good news left it on the door step in full view of every on and not put a card through the door this is the second time they have done this time to complain i think :censored:

well this time they have offered free express delivery on my next order  :censored:so time for another complaint

I agree. I intensely dislike this form of redress. "Sorry we cocked up, spend more with us and we'll see if we can mess it up faster next time!"

Best of luck with your complaint. :thumbsup:

well its pays to be persistent got a refund of £10  :D

Hope you start to feel better soon.

I was on my way to the Warley open day, when the car coughed and died as I got on to the M5.

Several hours later, I'm back home, sans car, not having got to Oldbury.

The car is parked outside a local garage, with more fault codes in it's electronics that the mind can comfortably comprehend, all of them intermittent. How long is it going to take them to find and fix the suspected Canbus comms fault? How long is a piece of string?

Very not happy.

Hmm, the unhappy thread, seems to me an ideal place to let rip.
Has any one had dealings with the fabled legend, http://www.railwayeng.com ?

Because its appears, that I dared to:
A. Ask a question about track standards
B. Fish for advice from a pro.
C. Not immediately understand or agree as a novice
D. Dare to pay for goods and services
E. Not provide every intimate detail that is available via paypal
F. Fail to please his Majesty in every way.

I have sent the most undeserving polite English gentleman's letter I possibly could, for troubling his Lordship.

We will see If I get my stuff or not as I (foolishly) sent my wad directly to his paypal account as his effing cart was broken.  :censored:

I was angry.  Now unhappy.  And more than a little hurt.  I'm glad that I have met some good murican's previously , or this might well have put me off the whole place.

I have not been in possession of a television set for many years now.  I don't like television.  Since I moved into my current address, some seven and a half years ago, I have had three visits from TV license plonkers, i have also had three letters from them asking me to purchase a license and to provide proof of having done so, or let them know that I don't need one.  I have responded to this online each time.  That's all OK (ish)...   However, today, I got a letter advising me that I am to be visited by an 'enforcement officer' to confirm that I do not have a TV and that I do not watch live broadcasts on line.
The attendance at my door of a 'representative' wishing to confirm that nothing has changed I can deal with.  But an 'enforcement officer'?  Really?
While I question the morality of the thing in general, I also have to wonder how much of the licence fee goes to checking up on whether people are paying their licence fee!  It seems that there is a visit to an address every 5 seconds, day, evening - including weekends. 10,101 visits a day they say.  I wonder how many people, on the streets and in various offices around the country, are involved in this.  I wonder what the total cost of policing this is.
It's the implied threat of a visit from an 'enforcement officer' that has got me wound up.  Does anyone else find that offensive?
"When in trouble, when in doubt, run (trains) in circles..." etc.
There, doesn't that feel better? 
Lovely!

  Does anyone else find that offensive?

I once went through a period of a few years without a TV or any other qualifying devices. I got so fed up with the bullying and harassment from the Licensing plonkers*, that I wrote to them promising legal action if they continued. Never heard another word from them.

* A very suitable description Zogbert.
“We are indebted to those soldiers who served with courage and distinction to bring peace to Northern Ireland,” UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said. “The welfare of our former service personnel is of the utmost importance.”

There's a pending update - go into the App Store and go to updates - you should be able to force it through if it's not already done it.

If that doesn't cure the problem, I've found one of the most common cures for iPad odd behaviour is to shut down completely and reboot it.
