Re: Planning permission to install air conditioning in Wandsworth: who has experience? Recommended installers?

You're right, it was a cheap shot.  But I don't really suffer from middle class guilt - I have a science degree and have been fascinated by climate change for well over a decade, often reading source scientific material.  Among the most interesting and depressing studies are those on the psychologic...

Throne Bars

Re: Where to buy external hard drive?

I've got a WD My Book external drive with literally terabytes of capcity and I've been very pleased with it - my whole system backs up every 6 hours.  You can get them anywhere - eg Currys, or online.

I am pretty sure that you get entrepreneurs relief if you are a director, subject to some fairly straightforward conditions re the company's trading activities etc.  Not sure how it interacts with EMI share schemes.  But either way you will g...

Re: Am I Right To Be Miffed About This Lack Of Consideration? Your Opinions Please!

She was well out of order, but don't worry, you will be well and deservedly rewarded in heaven.  People like you, willing to go the extra mile for others, make the world a better place, so thank you for what you did, even though I was not a beneficiary of your consideration.  And please don't let it...

Small electrical repairs

Anyone know where one can get small electricals (in this case a clothes steamer) repaired instead of throwing it away?  There used to be a place on Webbs Road but it closed years ago.
