    Colin Furze

    Anyone else here a fan. I just finished watching his digging a secret tunnel series. The guy is as mad as a box of frogs, but he's a hell of a builder. EDIT: Just ordered a Mining Co T-Shirt (y)

    Weymouth Folks help

    My best mate has just surprised me with news he's coming down here for the week on holiday and has asked that I provide a pub that will be showing the Boro game on Tuesday night against Watford. Do any of the Weymouth massive know and can recommend a place that would be showing it?

    The price of everything going, the shipping industry contributing to the problem

    An interesting article https://www.propublica.org/article/ocean-freight-shipping-costs-inflation?utm_source=pocket-newtab-global-en-GB If paints shippers, and Hapag in particular in a bad light with 10 times the normal cost for freight.

    Finding dental cover

    Partly my own fault in that I didn't follow up, but I am not registered with a dentist here. I've been trying for 2 years to get registered in order to start my Denplan cover once again. I am fortunate in that I can go private which I feel I should in order to alleviate NHS pressures...

    Will of the people

    For any Muse fans It dropped 4 days ago on Youtube so I'm a bit late to the party, but I like this track and I've pre-ordered it for August. Listening to the lyrics, its kind of apt for the current political climate. Pre-order

    Laptop thread, scam or not?

    2022 New Laptop XPS 17 9710, Display Touch UHD+ da 17″, Intel i7-11800 - BestBuy-UK (lxarm.com) Flashed up on my newsfeed, seems too good to be true and ships from the US. I am tempted, but my spidey senses are tingling. Anyone else have an opinion?

    Shout out to a member

    Not naming names (they know who they are). Wanted to say thank you as they reached out from the Bournemouth ticket thread as a season ticket holder after I said I hadn't been to a game for 2 years and this was the only local game for me. They offered to get me a ticket and post it down to me...

    Old Gazette Articles

    Hi, does anyone know if its possible to get old reprints of the Gazette. I'm looking for a specific article from back in 1990 (I think) when the local schools ran a penalty shootout competition at Ayresome Park. I have some information on it and would like to get it printed and framed. Thanks...

    Bank profit tax cut

    Sunak to slash tax on bank profits just weeks after National Insurance hike (thelondoneconomic.com) I have to say, this stings. The general public hit with a 1.25% increase in NI with a freeze on raising the tax threshold for 5 years and increasing costs and rising inflation. This cannot be...

    Any Enterprise IT peeps on here

    As this site seems to be a font of knowledge, thought I'd ask if anyone here in enterprise IT has ever worked with internal PKI's ? Looking to bounce an idea around and need a sounding board.

    Fuming, more mask rubbish

    I've just found out from my wife, that her cousin, who we were already annoyed with as she wears a fake lanyard to claim she doesn't have to wear a mask, went into a popular coffee shop, was refused service because of no mask, has just been given £3,000 compensation by said company as an...

    Boro show potential interest in Charlie Wyke

    Apologies if already posted, I did check :) https://www.oneboro.co.uk/boro-news/middlesbrough-want-sunderland-forward-charlie-wyke-24321 Could be interesting if we get him on a free if Sunderland fail to go up. What I did find interesting in that article is that Sheff Utd may want Fletcher.

    Parmo's in the South

    I just want to say, having moved South a few years ago, there are a few things I miss. One is being able to get a parmo with a beer when I've had a crap day. Well, there is a restaurant here that has just started doing them (Thursday nights only) as a trial, and I am absolutely made up. Its...

    But I NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEED The Sims for work

    Well, my weekend is ruined (racism)

    So, as part of my job, I have to evaluate software and services used by my company around the world.

    The ruination of my marriage. Or how I delved back into Football Manager 2020.

    After 5 years away, during which time I discovered I really missed it, I've taken the plunge and jumped back into the world of football management. Not since the heady days of taking such players as Tonton Zola Moukoko, Andriy Sigporsson and Mark Kerr from relative obscurity to Champions League...
