    Yeah, they're a reseller so your tickets may or may not be coming from the original vendor so their prices can be really crap too. They had a massive fine in Australia not that long ago for breaking...

    Yeah, utter shit. Customer support is non-existent. Would never use them again.

    Plus companies like them and StubHub fuel ticket scalping.

    I've only dived from Portland once. It was full of gammons and pissed-up neds (or whatever the English equivalent is) and never saw the need to go back. The thought of paying a tenner a day for...

    Depends what's causing the damp. If it's just condensation on a cold surface then an easy fix with insulation and boarding. Stick a DPC under the sole plate of any framing you put up just to make...

    Depends whether you like sitting on a ferry for hours or sitting in a car for hours, it's a zero sum game. Ferries bore the arse off me and I really can't be bothered with driving into Aberdeen, I've...

    I never thought Corbyn was a marxist, I thought he was simply incompetent, indecisive and untrustworthy. He had no leadership ability. I can remember saying on here pretty much on the day he got the...

    I think there is a lot to that. Hard left these days seems to mean the libtard progressive Evolve types that tried hijacking the party. But if you mean 1970's/80's hard left, i.e. provincial town,...

    They have covid to blame it on. Not incompetence. Not a manifesto that was headlined with a policy of economic suicide. Not being the most corrupt administration in modern times. This embarrassment...

    I love how they sell it as "to help the situation".

    They'll be able to write off having lost control of inflation to it as well. I used to wonder if this government was corrupt or simply...

    My main regs are from 1997. My wing is probably around 94/95. My computer is from 1999. My rebreather is from the late 1970's :D (I'm the last of a long list of previous owners).

    Usually needs building control approval if DIY'ing and not using a HETAS fitter. If it's Part J compliant and the installation gets approved then should be no different to how any other building work...

    Wasn't someone saying the rEvo reduced the density earlier as well?

    I'm surprised your JJ doesn't have that feature. You want to send that back. Assuming you haven't voided the warranty on it yet.

    Thanks for that, I'll have a read of that later. I'm surprised that it has been reviewed but not surprised at the conclusion. It's one thing as a diver to have an opinion of it based on what is often...

    You can still burn whatever you like here, you just can't sell it. Which is probably a good thing because a lot of what gets sold was shit.

    Local finds liaison officer for the Portable Antiquities Scheme. Assuming they were acquired legitimately. If not then there's plenty of uncles that know coins and don't ask questions.
