Is he now involved with Scottish Railway crossings? I How did he squeeze in here?
According to Sam Knows I'm on a connection that does not exist. Changes shown for my local Exchange are several years out of date. The site is still in Bookmarks but no longer used for the reason given.
No wonder they are a bit of a joke.
A lot of posts are written in exactly the way that was used some decades ago about "Japanese products". Will we ever learn?
I'm waiting for my refund on returned product supplied by British firm with a non-UK adapter plug.
Caveat Emptor --- but wait till you try before slagging off products or services.
We are???? Do tell!!!
Don't fine them, send them on Speed Awareness Courses, at a fee roughly the same as the fine might be. Seems to get round the issue. Part of the fee to the town and the rest to the tutors. Same earnings and more likely to be "constitutional" too.
I'd be reluctant to try anything different with the charger as I've done it before and found them badly overheating.
Will keep seller under pressure.
I confess that I am sometimes that angry customer. Like right now when I have spent a fortune on a well known brand of mobile phone which arrived beautifully sealed with all its ancillary bits sealed in its box all carefully packed within the courier's parcel..... just several days late. When opened the box had a Plug for the charger. Not a UK plug, but a useless Continental one.
I contacted the well-known seller concerned by phone and was promised an urgent delivery of the correct UK plug.
Last night I had a phone call informing me that their Agent wanted me to phone the Manufacturer to sort out my problem. NOT the Agent, but the Manufacturer MY PROBLEM. Have they ever heard of the Consumer Rights Act?
Angry??? Incandescent more like. Are there any UK businesses still capable of doing that business without being led by the hand or dragged by the hair?
Too true. I moved far away from them some years ago when the signs first started to show.
Anybody in the world who is not involved with Her Majesty's Revenue & Customs, surely. Just as some people don't know that BBC is a broadcasting company and think it might be rude.
Seems simple enough?
Nominet is the relevant authority for ,uk registrations.
Nominet permitted ov4er 50,000 improper registrations.
Why keep Nominet?
Just like apostrophes?
Well done, the SHOW ME State
Does that mean the screwed up "about:blank" button will start working again?
Handelsbanken is great but the fees made me leave .
He knew how to sort out the BBC and about quality -- unlike the current lot.
For now I'm happy to be over 75 and tell BBC and Capita where to stick their license fee demands.
Money grabbing is now their National Sport.
"Notification in such cases is not mandatory under current UK data protection laws.
A spokeswoman at the ICO was not able to provide any guidance on the extent to which UK consumers were affected by the breach when we called."
Am I the only person who finds it strange for someone in San Fransisco to be writing detailed and potentially useful notes about the London Tube?
Did they happen to mention the new Burger King WhopperCoin?
Last I heard it was supposedly to be tested on the Northern M6 in 2016.
Where's it been?
Don't like them. Don't use them. Don't use .uk registrations.
From personal experience the Philppines staff were unusual for Virgin Media in that they alone knew what they were doing and actually did it.
Bought two copies of an Ordnance Survey map last year, one standard version, the other waterproof.
According to notes in the Customer Information Section printed in both maps it had not been revised for 10 years, but was copyright dated the previous year.
Not a happy bunny. Not rushing to buy again.
Get a Granny or Grandad of 75 or over. Sit back. Watch BBC (if you really like crap) and laugh at the stupid law.
"A letter from executive sales director Neil Bartholomew, seen by The Register, said: "Customers trust Virgin Media "
Common abbreviation for I Care Zero.
Examples to the contrary, anyone?
If Three did not breach OFCOM rules then what right in law does OFCOM have to impose a penalty?

Forget US English please.
Seen the signs at the entries to Milton Keynes? Been there since it was a new town.
The pint that thinks its a quart. The New Town that insists it is a City.
Probably no more than a hangover from the British Rail philosophy of charging what the traffic will bear.
One question to decide whether it i has any merit at all. Will end users have the ability, at last, to contact OpenReach to get answers?
Because they consider themselves to be "Authorities", rather than Councils to be voted in (and out) by citizens, Councils seem to believe they can do whatever they wish.
Note that the article switches cheerfully between those same descriptions.
Do we vote for Authorities? Since when?
Purely for the record, this article concerns Jonathan Neil Mendelsohn, Lord Mendelsohn and not some of the other Lords people are thinking of.
For those words alone the fine should at the very least be doubled.
SPED UP? Really?
So long as our phone companies make money from delivering nuisance calls what incentive is there for them to take action against them? Surely a decent Regulator would have the ability to stop that?
Very realistic. Very like OFCOM. Text but zero for information.l
Does the Information Commissioner have a phone at home or a mobile in his pocket. If he does why does he sit waiting for reports? Then take the length of time equal to having a baby before acting. Or is he the only person in the UK who NEVER gets nuisance calls? While the rest of us are TPS registered AND use call-blockers and still get the calls.
I'm looking for a gentle undemanding night-watchman type of job. So when does he retire?
Of course that is so true. Exactly as the UK Authorities act so efficiently to stop or prevent Nuisance calls being made through apparently UK phone numbers from which considerable money is made by UK people leasing them out. Aye! Right!
You expect EPOS Users to know where else to contact?
Then I saw the magic words "RBS England".
who is in charge at Openretch as they are not available to customer communication at any level?
There is no British law, is there? There is Scots law. There is English law. Each different in definitions of admissibility. Should we start this debate again from the beginning?
Both those WileyFox handsets use Cyanogen OS
Ensure that all BT Executives, Directors and the like are limited to the minimum quality of service provided by their Company, including of all their noms de plumes such as Openreach, Plus.net, etc.
Ensure that all BT offices are provided only with that same limited service.
Once they all enjoy those reductio as absurdum levels, watch them run.
I've only just noticed that EE is a subsidiary of BT Group. Might as well throw their quality of service into the mix too.
26,473,000 in 2011 according to Wikipedia. How much further forward does that take us?
