"always a couple of travellers being ripped off"

That'll be me. Order online, pick up at the airport. I've always had better rates than the high street / M&S, that way. He who has the last laugh...

Confused

I forgot to record Stargate Universe, which I have paid Sky 1 for through my Virgin Media subscription. So I had to torrent it to be able to watch what I had paid for.

I forgot to record Deep space Nine, which I have paid Virgin 1 for through my Virgin Media subscription. So i had to use TV Catchup it to be able to watch what I had paid for.

Who will explain to my moral compass and the general public why one of these is bad and one is good.

First one to say cos Deep space nine is shit wins a camel's ball or something!

"It's a clever choice of location - a very rural area with not very great broadband (5km loop), within spitting distance (across the Tamar) from a biggish city (Plymouth) where VM already have cable broadband plant."

Higher Pill or Pilmere is a high density housing development built after Telewest, or whoerver it was back then, cabled the rest of Saltash. So not very rural. Hatt on the other hand is an Esso Garage and some sheep.
