Re: Nice to be back

there's been a brilliantly altruistic campaign to stop the pernicious attempt by morrisons to put the poor co-op on barlowmoor road out of business. yeah so it might protect some already grossly inflated house prices and keep the number of hours of sunshine my hydrandeas currently enjoy but this is ...

Re: Wiped clear laptop question

any new latop you buy will have a licence for the OS included, refurb machines (which i think is what you mean by "wiped clean") should have an OS licence as well but make sure you ask. RE: the MS Office licences, just use OpenOffice - https://www.openoffice.org/ . it has all of the core f...

Never heard of this place before. it's great. an old warehouse converted into a two floor second hand book shop, piles of books everywhere, narrow little corridors with floor to ceiling books so that you have to crawl around to have a proper dig around. they dont mind i...
