    Your electric is more than mine at work with 4 PCs running all day and a (VDU-less) server 24/7. And we have an electric forklift.

    I have in my hand, assurance from Frau Merkel that the import controls will not be levied on small goods for private buyers. This Brexit deal is good for everyone.

    When the debate was in full swing about Steve's legal case I had a look at the insurance and my best understanding is the same pretty much as Allan. The insurance is actually a generic one rather...

    The "problem" if it is one ;) is that you get what you pay for. GUE R1 at nearly a grand and PADI OW at 400 quid. Most potential divers lack the knowledge to fully understand how and why training...
