eBay glitch sends packages to wrong addresses

Leigh

ebay's uk phone number if you want to complain...

I've had the same problem, and even though i contacted the seller direct they still sent my item to an address i lived at more than 3 years ago.

I contacted Ebay - they blamed Paypal.

I contacted Paypal - they haven't even bothered to reply to my three emails.

So, what's the answer?

Call Ebay's office in the UK - 0208 6053000 (and choose option 3)

I got the problem sorted out within 48 hours and got a full refund from paypal

Or you can email... ukreception@ebay.com Apperntly they're pretty good too, but i didn't try that.

MacBooks too

I have always been a Mac user, since the days of my first Performa. I have had 2 performas, a G3, a clamshell ibook, an imac G3, a G4 and now a nice new MacBook.

They have always been reliable and I have always been very pro apple. Until now.

I spent a grand and half on a new MacBook, and having had such good xperiences with all my previous macs decided against the waranty. But I have had nothing but trouble with it since the day it arrived.

Firstly there was no mention when i bought it of the rosetta app that runs behind your software to make it work -this causes everything to be ridiculously slooooow.

Then came the yellowing of the shiny white case, so now it looks old and grubby.

And then, just after the one year warranty ran out, it suddenly won't turn on anymore unless constantly plugged in. It seems it doesn't recognise the battery anymore. I called Apple and they said there was nothing they could do unless i sent it back and paid to have it looked at.

But luckily for me the good old Reg had a story about the exact same problem happening to others, and how Apple have offered a free replacement battery for anyone affected - it's just a shame that Apple didn't seem to know anything about it!

So my MacBook will be going to my local reseller (50 miles away) for a new battery, and then it will be going straight on ebay. After years of happy maccing I am now going to buy a Dell Inspiron. The problem is that Apple are churning them out now and don't have the same quality they used to, and customer support is rubbish.

Patientline looks for debt help

Leigh

Title

When I gave birth I was very ill and our baby was kept in special care for 2 weeks. My husband was only allowed to visit between 1 and 4. SO he spent most of the rest of the time phoning to check how we were going. there was no warning of the 49p per minute charge so when we got our phone bill we were horrified.

I was bed bound and unable to go outside to use a mobile or find a BT payphone, and he was not allowed to visit. we were forced into using their terrible service.

The cashed in on the most terrifying 2 weeks of our lives - and i hope they go bust. they are parasites that feed off the vulnerable and they should not be allowed in our hospitals to take advantage of us.

Scotland ranked 'worst small country'

Leigh

I disagree

I live in Wales and I disagree with this study. Wales is by far the worst small country in Europe.

Sacred blogging bovine turns camgirl in sympathy push

Leigh

Hippies??

They're not hippies you idiot! They're Muslims. It's a religious community.

It's just another case of Mulsims thinking they can get around our laws because of their religion.

The point is they didn't look after their animal properly in the first place. They were probably too busy dressing it in pretty flowers or waving insence around to bother with our evil western notion of vetinary care.

So now the animal has TB and it needs to be put down. TB is conatagious and is a nasty disease.

If the bull is so sacred then why do they want to let it suffer a long and agonising death?
