Re: Outstanding NHS!

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this here before but my GP admitted me to hospital with non-specific stomach pains back in early March this year. This was done 'as a precaution' because she wasn't...

Re: GTech vacuum cleaners

I remember the early Hoovers did have a light in them, but the bulbs didn't last long and were rarely replaced.

Did the Hoover service man wear a white coat?

I remember when the TV service...

Re: GTech vacuum cleaners

Very interesting. I didn't know about the history of Goblin.

Goblin somehow became better known for their 'Goblin Teasmade' which of course became a standing joke back in the day. *yes

Re: GTech vacuum cleaners

About fifteen years ago when our children were young we went into Comet, Curry's or whatever and were approached by a Salesman. Without thinking I said we were looking for a new 'Noo Noo', which is...

Re: Phone unlocking

I had a Vodkafone 3G/4G data SIM in my laptop for a while. I found it painfully slow to the point that I would say it was nigh impossible to use all of the bandwidth that I paid for.

I switched...

Re: Phone unlocking

When 'roaming' abroad you can connect to any available network for the same price.

I don't know whether network sharing was one of Blair's ideas but it was mentioned recently and the mobile...

Re: Phone unlocking

The only reason that I ever used Vodkafone (or Avoidafone if you prefer) is that their telephone coverage is, or was better than the other operators, and even today in parts of Scotland and the...

I think that is what MJ224 said, but it could be read either way.

Re: Agfa Vista 200

I didn't know that. :)

Just as one could post northbound letters on the mail train at London Kings Cross (for a small supplement) until its departure at about 23.00 Hrs.

Re: ISO 3200 from Kodak

I came across this article about the Kodak Ektachrome factory in the USA and thought it might be of interest.

Re: GTech vacuum cleaners

Come to think of it, I have never come across a rechargeable core drill! :)

Re: Agfa Vista 200

I presume the Hemel Hempstead works was for film processing rather than manufacture? It wouldn't do to get the two mixed up I suppose.

I can still remember the address for Kodakchrome processing...

Re: GTech vacuum cleaners

Fair point, but drills tend to be used intermittently and only for short periods.

When SWMBO gets the vacuum cleaner out I swear she doesn't give up until she can see the carpet thread,...

Re: GTech vacuum cleaners

I would say that is more about designed obsolescence than evolution.

As I said above, the batteries are expensive and will be knackered long before anything else on the machine. Will they be...

Re: Phone unlocking

Just read their T's & C's. Some are downright scary, but don't expect their fast talking salesmen to warn you about them in advance. :mad:

Re: GTech vacuum cleaners

You are paying a lot of money for the rechargeable batteries and charger, which will be knackered long before the rest of the machine.

Working time away from power is limited, and the motor will...

Re: Agfa Vista 200

That is very interesting Steve, although it soon becomes clear that many of the emulsions listed are in fact manufactured by third parties, so the total number of 'different' films made will actually...

Re: Infra red

The visible spectrum is generally held to be from about 390 nanometres (violet) to 750 nanometres (deep red), but this varies slightly from person to person and also depends on the intensity of...

Re: Agfa Vista 200

This one says 24 exposures in the product description, but it is still a good price.

Re: Agfa Vista 200

I was initially very tempted but I see they are 24 exposures only. The fresh film is better value.

I will ask SWMBO to have a look in Poundland for the Agfa film though.

Sorry John, I was with Talk Mobile, not TalkTalk. They were very different, and I have to say, provided a very good and fair service until Vodafone pulled the plug.

I seem to remember that...
