    • And as for “what if I get sick the last week” (or those last three days)......   well, you’d get sick pay. Would you go into your new workplace?   HMRC may not be bothered by 2 overlapping jobs of course, but if NHS CFS (counter fraud And security) noticed that either: a) you were claiming over-lapping sick pay for 2 jobs, or b) you were claiming sick pay for one job while well enough to turn in for the other: expect them to view at least one of the sick pay claims as fraudulent!   if you annoy your “difficult” manager : they might be difficult enough to highlight it for the local NHS CF specialist
    • Hello, Can someone advise if the attached is a valid charge please?  I had parked in the car park and paid but then got delayed and have ended up with a ticket for parking longer than I should have done.   I know they will refuse the appeal but is this charge enforceable?   Charge Notice.pdf
    • The dealer is called Carwise in Epping. It's not the most established of premises. When i was there i'd say there was about 10-15 cars inside and an office. I've seen these reviews of them which seem to replicate my experience. https://www.cardealerreviews.co.uk/dealership/hr-autos-epping-essex-england (note previous name). It's quite worrying.    
    • To me, it isn't just about social distancing and hygiene measures. I'm far from the first to say it but until there's a reliable track and trace system, I don't think this can be managed properly.   Children may not suffer as much as adults, although some do, they can be asymptomatic and pass on the virus to the rest of the family.   https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/uk-news/lockdown-david-king-second-wave-18739973
    • When will most schools actually re-open in September ?   And when they open, will they be providing teaching over the number hours 9am to 3pm  ?   I am thinking of the school I attended, which was a large Victorian building, with many modern extensions.  The classrooms which could accommodate about 35 Children elbow to elbow, will only be able to accommodate 20 at the most with any reasonable distancing.   Or does the whole class  of say 35 stay in a bubble and the teachers move around to teach the different subjects ?    I can see many schools opening later in September, not for all pupils for all days and not doing the full hours.   This is going to be very difficult to manage for all those concerned, including parents looking to return to work.

    • 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

A lot of issues with the current situation maybe resolved just by bringing vB4.0.0 up to vB4.0.6

 

4.0.4 fixes 450 bugs since the release of 4.0.3.

4.0.6 fixes over 100 bugs since the release of 4.0.5.

 

So rather than spending so much time trying to resolve some issues, upgrading to the latest version available may help and save time?

 

I appreciate it is a lot of work to upgrade, but Webby would be peeing in the wind trying to fix everything and then risk the chance of having to do it all over again once you upgrade anyway.

I think that the move to v.4.06 is a very sensible idea. We'll discuss this with the WebMaster.

 

Some of the problems are definitely problems with our upgrade - and are fixable. Others are merely new features of the new version of the vB software and will take a little more work, I expect.

 

I have to say that vB seemto have changed some things just to produce a visible difference, even though thechange is not better.

 

The clutter which MB referred to in thread 1 is an example. The screenshot which MB has reproduced above is another example.

 

We'll try to address these but we'll have to try and get our installation fully working first and then we can try improving on what vB have written for us.

 

Certainly, the vB search function - which was never very good, is now really much more limited than ever. I can't imagine why reducing functionality - and effectively reducing choice - could ever be seen as good thing.

I think that it comes with the American village mentality. I like Americans a lot, but I used always to be amazed at how un-International and how un-savvy, Americans are. But it really is true. There is a sort of we-know-what-is-best-for-you attitude which can really put a damper on things. You have to remember that they were helped to their Independence by the Fwench and I think that explains a lot

From what I have read vB when they were bought out by Internet Brands got rid of / sacked / resigned a lot of the original coders. vB is no longer a personal company in my eyes. The difference before was the guys who were at vB pre the sale of, knew the product back to front as it was their baby. What you are seeing now is a commercial entity's product rather than a brand that was reknown for quality, being personal and it's willingness to work with the community, and not just for profit.

 

This is my opinion and not fact if IB are reading this.

 

vB3 is end of life and a lot of people who had bought vB were very unhappy with the way things went once the newer version came out.

 

Overall I do like vB4 but like you say, it should be right out of the box, not all the malarky that Webby has had to endure.

Yes, I've read the same things about vB and IB. Unfortunately I don't exepect that IB will read this or worry about it.

 

I have a sense that vB 4 = Vista and that there will be pressure to sort it out and that a Win 7=vB5 will be released in a couple of years.

A size limit would be very nice for when pics etc are inserted so that the page does not get thrown out by a large insert.

 

Smilies - could they possibly be changed back to the old style as the new ones are very similar to each other?

 

On thread replies it would be handy to see who made the last post like we used to be able to.

The upgrade was essential for security after this report...

 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-10714192

 

We are all very trusting when it comes to the Internet.

 

That flaw never affected CAG and was not even present in their older version of software that CAG used which was vB 3.7.0 or this one vB 4.0.0 - However I do agree, the upgrade was definitely needed for other security reasons.

The green dot thingy should only appear if you have actually posted in that particular thread as far as I know.

 

On a none important issue, the actual green dot is wrong anyway. In the thread list it is like it is in your image, yet the icon legend it is like this. thread_dot-16-right.png (the wrong way round as in the arrow points the opposite way)

I second all the above. :-)

I find it especially difficult to read threads where an oversized image means you have to scroll sideways on every post. As indeed is happening on this page :-(

Either needs an automatic maximum set at around 540 pixels or a prominent note on the image upload box. That said, to be fair that isn't a problem peculiar to the upgrade, it's always happened, but is very offputting, so while we are tweaking it would be good to sort it out...

I did try firefox which solved a lot of problems, but finally upgraded to IE8 now and life is so much easier :)
