    • Does he admit he was the driver, and agree that he was doing that speed (or close?). Was the NIP combined with a S.172 request to identify the driver, and if so, has he returnrd the form identifying the driver?. This would still need to be done (if eh doesn't they may rund out of time to prosecute for the speeding, but a S172 prosecution will only lead to a worse outcome, not only in terms of fine and licence revocation but also an even worse effect on insurance premiums in the future).   If the speeding has no defence: Band C fine, and disqualification (7-56 days) or six points, on first glance of the Magistrates Courts Sentencing guidelines https://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk/offences/magistrates-court/item/speeding-revised-2017/   However, for "driving grossly in excess of the speed limit the court should consider a disqualification in excess of 56 days", even before:   https://www.sentencingcouncil.org.uk/explanatory-material/magistrates-court/item/road-traffic-offences-disqualification/8-new-drivers/   "Drivers who incur six points or more during the two-year probationary period after passing the driving test will have their licence revoked automatically by the Secretary of State; they will be able to drive only after application for a provisional licence pending the passing of a further test (Road Traffic (New Drivers) Act 1995). An offender liable for an endorsement which will cause the licence to be revoked under the new drivers’ provisions may ask the court to disqualify rather than impose points. This will avoid the requirement to take a further test. Generally, this would be inappropriate since it would circumvent the clear intention of Parliament."   So, the likely outcome is a band C fine, 6 points and thus automatic revocation of his licence. That is provided they are just prosecuting for the speed (and not considering careless or dangerous driving........)
    • I think I read the other day that sadly some people have caught Covid in hospital.   Also that people have gone in for non-virus reasons and when tested have turned out to be asymptomatic but positive.   I don't know where they're counted.
    • not a lot he can do sadly esp as <12mts new licence holder?     Speed Enforcement Guidance.pdf
    • Apparently around 23% of those in hospital 'with' Covid are not there 'for' Covid but for other reasons.  I'd like to think this is one reason why the numbers of hospitalised cases among the vaccinated can seem high.  Does strike me as a ridiculous way of reporting the figures when they're trying to overcome vaccine hesitancy.  Feeds anti vaxxers arguments.

My netbook just went blank so I went down to the PCWorld I purchased it from to visit the Techguys making use of the monthly payment I made for cover. They informed me that I would have to phone the Techguys helpline, nothing to do with them. After questioning on the phone they agreed that my computer did not work and arranged collection. About a week after collection I received a text to say that it had arrived with the Techguys (the big shed 5 miles down the road from me). Next contact was to say all was well it was the motherboard it would be returned with all data intact.

So far so good. Two weeks no sign. Follow up phone calls - it had been misplaced, but they were looking. Regular phone calls made over the following weeks with a gradual increase in the time spent on hold, including on more than one occasion disconnection. Finally a letter (standard) arrives telling me to take my receipt and the letter to the store to get a replacement.

What about all my data which I no longer have and somebody else obviously does including approaching 2000 contacts!

No interest from them to discuss just a take it or leave it attitude. An attempt to email the CEO was intercepted by customer complaints who just said the same go get a replacement from the store.

Have they sent it somewhere else? Has someone stolen it within the company? They obviously do not care.

I always said that I would never sign up to one of these warranty cons but did due to the small size of a net book. NEVER again.

My backup was in the 'cloud' and as I no longer have the machine I have no idea how to retrieve any information. Any suggestions welcome.

I will go back to using the local shop I have found with three guys who seem to be able to repair most problems and who are not going to lose my machine in a big shed.

Unfortunately whilst they are responsible for replacing your machine after losing it, they are not responsible for any of your lost data. It's your responsibility to keep a backup (and know how to access it) of all your data. I doubt the machine has been sent to someone else, more than likely it's somewhere in the workshop lost in limbo. If it is discovered eventually, I wouldn't be surprised if it was wiped and sold as a refurb unit.

 

As for your data backup, when you say 'in the cloud' do you mean you had an online backup? Do you know who this was with? If you backed up your files online then they should be retrievable from any PC so long as you have your login details.

when its found its likely to be stripped down for spares if you call the call center and ask for a note to be put on the system you MAY be able to get the hard drive returned it depends on some factors tho
