  1. Just a general piece of advice - do not install Windows updates straight away - refer to http://www.askwoody.com/ for advice as to what to install and when.
  2. It is hardly surprising given the medieval restrictions imposed by their religion - they are exposed to Western liberal values and then have to try to square that with their rather daft religious dogmas - it would make my head explode if I were brainwashed with that rubbish...
  3. If you paid something in the last 6 months it is likely not statute barred - unless there was a clear period of 6 years in which you made no payments and did not acknowledge the debt - sorry.
  4. If they had a quorate AGM and there were no other nominations then most likely - Yes - they are duly elected (subject to their particular Union's rule book). Is their Union recognised by management under a recognition agreement? Just a thought...
  5. Anyone remember the £12 penalty charge farce on CCs? I bet that the interest rate cap is set just a wee bit above what they already charge - so it sounds like they are doing something - they are actually doing SFA.
  6. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wTfUNk1Sp0&feature=share
  7. Dr Strangelove - very funny but scary too - it could have happened.
  8. Sorry - urban myth I'm afraid. http://www.snopes.com/quotes/mrgorsky.asp
  9. Define more: louder; smellier; more frequent; travel further; linger longer. There are many 'quality' factors to a fart...
  10. Here is a chance to enjoy yourself. You could think about drafting a letter including the following thoughts. Health and safety risk assessments 1) Has your doorstep collector done a 'Heavy Lifting Course'? - some of these doorsteps can be quite weighty. 2) How quickly can the doorstep collector run? - the family dog can do the front path in x seconds - can the collector do it in x-1 seconds? I'm sure you can think of other angles as well. The short answer is that doorstep collectors are a rare as rocking horse poo - it is extremely unlikely you will see one.
  11. Note - may visit your property. I have been tempted to compose a letter to the effect of: "for the purposes of your Health and Safety duties to your employees and agents I would suggest that your risk assessment includes a timed run carrying a doorstep (having first carried out the requisite training for lifting heavy weights). I must advise you that my dog can cover the ground in 5 seconds so I would suggest that your doorstep collector can do it in 4."
  12. Muck Hall are just about the lowest of the low in a very low industry. If any of the lowlifes were going to take you to court it would have happened by now. File the letter under I for idiots (or A for a**holes if you want to find it more easily) and get on with your life.
  13. Also Peoples Bank CC accounts - they seem to have a major documentary FUBAR with them as well.
  14. I've had at least half a dozen bottom feeders threatening to visit my doorstep (I wish I had the social life my doorstep has!) - not one has showed up yet. I just file these pathetic letters against the day when they try to take it to court (5 years and counting...).
  15. Got the same letter today - Arrow have just got another pig in a poke!
  16. Fred MBNA changed the account number of my account before they flogged it to the low-lifes. Unfortunately for them, they used that new (unknown to me) number on their 'Default Notice'. Epic Fail!
  17. Lloyds TSB refunded my ATM claim within 3 days. I had to get the claim form from a branch (which does not help OP I know). I suspect that they may have to mail you a form so it would take much longer.
  18. Are you a member of a professional association (e.g. AAT, ACCA etc.)? If so, you should be able to get advice/guidance from them - they will have a professional ethics section. This is AAT's standards page http://www.aat.org.uk/content/item2500/
  19. Russ and Sam, two friends, met in the park every day to feed the pigeons, watch the squirrels and discuss world problems. One day Russ didn't show up. Sam didn't think much about it and figured maybe he had a cold or something.. But after Russ hadn't shown up for a week or so, Sam really got worried. However, since the only time they ever got together was at the park, Sam didn't know where Russ lived, so he was unable to find out what had happened to him. A month had passed, and Sam figured he had seen the last of Russ, but one day, Sam approached the park and-- lo and behold!--there sat Russ! Sam was very excited and happy to see him and told him so. Then he said, 'For crying out loud Russ, what in the world happened to you?' Russ replied, 'I have been in jail.' 'Jail!' cried Sam. What in the world for?' 'Well,' Russ said, 'you know Sue, that cute little blonde waitress at the coffee shop where I sometimes go?' 'Yeah,' said Sam, 'I remember her. What about her? 'Well, one day she filed rape charges against me; and, at 89 years old, I was so proud that when I got into court, I pled 'guilty'. 'The judge gave me 30 days for perjury!
  20. Bank of America are bailing out of UK. They seem to have flogged their bag of lemons on to Wescot (poor deluded fools) so the threat-o-grams are re-appearing. I've had a few recently. Frankly, I have more important things to do in my life than play letter ping-pong with a bunch of losers. If they could legally action these accounts they would have done so by now. MBNA are in the business of fleecing mugs - these may be their 'customers' - or they maybe the DCAs who buy their 'defaulted' accounts. Beware letters written in crayon - they come from the intelligent part of the organisation.
  21. I don't think I shall tell them where we went on holiday - it might seriously p*ss them off! On the other hand...
  22. I got back from holiday to find that MBNA and Wescot had kindly replenished my supply of toilet paper. They have obviously moved the filing cabinets and found the old dusty cobwebby stuff and are having one final go before running back to septic land with their tail between their legs. MBNA must have managed to con Wescot into buying a truckload of lemons. Made Oi larf it did.
