    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry.

    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Basicly I bought a microsoft sidewinder x6 keyboard on the 02/07/10 costing £49.99.

 

Since I bought it, it randomly flickers and starts typing the same key over and over, before restarting and working again, this happens completely at random. I've checked all areas of compatibility, downloaded the latest drivers from microsoft's website, and even voltage tested the USB ports, as I'm a qualified computer engineer.

 

So, having spent 27 days trying to get this damn thing working properly, I decided to take it back today as it'd be my last chance to do so and get a refund. I went in to the shop with the item fully boxed and with my reciept, I requested a refund on the product only to be told I wasn't entitled to one, I quoted the sale of goods act, to which the boy manning the counter shrugged off as incorrect. He insisted that he needed to leave the keyboard on test, in order to replicate the fault, he gave me a slip of paper on with the details and I left it with him.

 

I returned 5 hours later to find the keyboard plugged into the till, at the front of the shop, without the numberpad plugged in (as it's detachable). And another member of staff proceeded to tell me nothing had happened and he'd need to leave it on test until something does happen. I declined as I need a keyboard for work to write up engineer reports.

 

My question is, do I have to leave it with them on test for as long as it takes to replicate the fault in order to be entitled to anything. And even if it does happen, whats to stop them from just denying it, as I can't exactly sit in the shop behind their counter stairing at a keyboard.

do they have a money back period, ie 28 days.

is this stated anywhere, ie on there receipts ( most shops have a 28 day money back no quibble guarantee.

 

if you brought it back within that time, then i'm sure they have to exchange or give you your money back.

 

just plugging the keyboard into the till, with out the drivers and the side module fitted is not proving anything.

 

it needs to be setup under the same environment it was intended for. I'm sure the sidewinder x6 is a gaming keyboard, so just plugging it into a till isn't exactly the environment intended for.

 

Another thought comes to mind (reason being I have a sidewinder mouse that had a similar issue) hve you inadvertently created a macro and assigned it. This can happen by accident believe me - my mouse did it. (pressed the wrong button and bobs your uncle macro created. was bugging me until i checked and reset all the buttons.)

None of the macros are assigned yet, and the reciept says 1 year RTB warantee. The store has nothing anywhere about their returns procedure, although I'll be asking for a copy of it next time I go down. I managed to record some footage of it happening on my phone about 5 minutes after I got in, so I'll show them that and see what happens. Fortunately they gave me a reciept from when I left it in the shop so I have proof it was reported within 28 days.
