Post-pub nosh deathmatch: Bauernfrühstück v bacon sarnie


Re: HP Sauce...

They did touch salad cream, some years ago mind. it wasn't as nice as the original, but after so many years I've got used to it.

Bacon sarnie for me is smoked streaky, fried so crisp, that the frying pan stops sizzling and the bacon crumbles. Topped with Heinz salad cream or HP fruity sauce on nice thick fresh bread or crispy baguette.

Ten... alien invasions


You missed my favourite

Invaders, or was it "the invaders" with Roy Thinnes I think.

Loved that as a teenager.

The invaders looked human, apart from one flaw.

Was it their little or ring finger was at an angle AFAIR.

Absolute classic. mind you, I thought shoestring was classic when I was young.

ASA tuts at TalkTalk over broadband speed estimator


talktalk estimate of 40/80Mb service

In our area BT Openreach are upgrading to FTTC, you can see the chunkier street cabinets dotted around.

Did a speed check on talktalk, they said we could get 40 and 63Mb.

Tried the checker using a new postcode we will be moving to, and it said 40/79Mb.

I don't beleive that for one minute, but if so, jesus that'll be pretty quick. Maybe my missis will shut up about facebook gaming speed.

web without wires

That's exactly what you can get where I live in Ripley, Derbyshire, check out W3Z, it's part of a company called Zycomm and they do wireless internet locally, based in Ripley.

I don't use them as I have 12MB wired broadband, but some villages round here do benefit from their services.
