Computer help
at 20:13 30 Jan 2017

I know there are a few knowledgeable computer people on here. I have had a bit of a google but I can't find the answer.

My problem is that my laptop seems to connect to the router for broadband , but then doesn't load any sites at all. Not even any error messages, it just hangs.

It has been happening a few days. Sometimes if I restart it, it seems to work, but it might stop say an hour later and I'm back to square one.

I have restarted the router as well but doesn't seem to have helped.

My iPad, tv box and phone all work on the internet/broadband so it must be something to do with my laptop.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

BT Showcase - Sutton v Leeds
at 12:12 29 Jan 2017

Just thought I would let people know who don't have BT Sport that the Sutton v Leeds cup tie is on BT Showcase at 2pm.

It's channel 59 on my free view. Not sure what channel it is on other systems.

Quiz: The top goalscorer for every Premier League club
at 19:12 25 Jan 2017

If you like quizzes and you have a spare 20 minutes, this was quite fun! If you don't just do it anyway!

You have to get the spelling (surname) spot-on so i'll admit I did have to type what I thought it was in google and get the right spelling.

Is that a fcuk you to all that went today
at 22:19 17 Jan 2017

When we won a game the other week, Sitters put in here it was a fcuk you to all those who didn't go. Is this the other way round now?

That is embarrassing and I feel sorry for those of you who have to watch that every week.
I gladly have some exciting things in my life coming up with my wife being pregnant so I cant even be arsed to be sad/annoyed about this. I'm just embarrassed.

He sounds a fun chap to be around............ nothing but moaning that Village aren't attacking. If they went all out attack Tottenham would have picked them.off. their best chance was get a replay and try and beat them at home!

Strange game
at 15:57 7 Jan 2017

Been a strange game. First 15 minutes we seemed to play well and kept the ball. But since then it has been fairly even. I would have thought at 1-1 we would have stamped our authority on the game.

The midfield bar Laurence don't look great. Bru gives the ball away too cheapy. Defence look a bit shaky with this big bloke up front. Knudsen doesn't seem to be able to handle their pressing down.

Poor goals to give away for both teams. For our goal their defence was falling over and their keeper let a weak shot through his legs! Haha

Let's hope for a few more goals 2nd half! Need to get Douglas on ;)

We don't have a striker
at 19:20 19 Nov 2016

McGoldrick is skillful but isn't a scorer.

Sears confidence looks shot and can't really score.

9 times this season without a goal if we don't score here. This is dire stuff.

EDIT I forgot about Luke Varney.....

Pitman is our only "striker" but even he doesn't score many.

Not sure if anyone else has posted this but someone reminded me of this today so I thought I would see if I can find it. According to the blurb under this, they did it after not scoring for 5 games.

New job........No work
at 18:37 14 Sep 2016

Just thought I would put this to the people of twtd.

I was in a very comfortable job which in parts I enjoyed and in parts I thought I was not learning anything new. I was standing still in terms of progression so I thought further down the line it would backfire on me.

So I told the steps to finding a new job and within a few weeks I had the interviews and was offered a new job. Great. We agreed a start date (6 weeks notice) and I started about 3 weeks ago.

When I started, they had a half day of introduction stuff, then about a days worth of work doing a course to train me on this new software. Fair enough.

Since then, they seem to not have any work for me or just bits here and there so I do an hours work, then nothing for a day. I am just watching videos of how to do stuff in this new software. I am so bored!

I am concerned that there is no work for me to do. I work in accountancy so I would have thought there is always loads of work to do.

Am I just feeling weird because I was in a place where I was busy and I was the "go to man" if there was any problems. Now I am in a new (bigger) company with nothing to do. Is it just the contrast that's making me feel concerned.

In addition to this, I obviously don't really feel part of the "team" because I'm not actually doing anything.

Is this normal to be so unbusy in your first few weeks? Should I be grateful? Haha it really is so boring at the moment. (I know some people will say it's accountancy it's meant to be boring!)

Sky sports for a month for £25 - Now TV
at 17:08 14 Aug 2016

I usually watch the Ipswich Sky games on "Now TV" and for a limited time they have the monthly pass on there for £25. Available to new and existing customers.

I only say this as we are on twice within the next month and so even 2 day passes is £13.98 so "only" an extra £11.02 you get sky for a month. Not too bad. I'll enjoy the second half of this arsenal game!

Help choosing a solicitor
at 16:11 23 Jun 2016

This may be a really stupid question but here goes…….

I am looking to move and I need to find a solicitor. I had a preferred one from when I bought my current property so I got a quote from them as well as another solicitor just to compare.

The other solicitor is a fair bit cheaper so I asked my preferred one if there is any way they can bring their quote down to closer to the another one. They have now asked if I can provide the quote from the other solicitor.

So my question is, am I allowed to give them the quote from the other solicitor? I did write it out and send it to them, but they want the "official quote" which I suppose is understandable as potentially I could just be making it up.

Any help would be much appreciated. (I know price isn't everything but it was about 30-35% higher!)

Not very good at home, great away?
at 00:01 20 Dec 2015

What is going on with our home and away form this season?

No one else in the top half (well actually top 11 as I see Blackburn in 12th have only won 3 as well) has won less than 4 games at home except us. Is it because we have played a lot of the good teams at home? So it's only natural we are going to not win a lot of those?

However, our away results are up there with the best teams in the league. We do seem to have played a lot of the bottom teams away (recently anyway!). Is it purely that?

Or Are we just set up more effectively away than at home where we are expected to dominate more?

Or is it something else that I am missing? Seems like we played well enough today and on another day may have won. I would have taken 6th at Christmas if given that at the start of the season. However automatic promotion looks a long way off being 10 points behind now. I know there is a long way to go but that is a fair few points to catch up. The majority of us would take 6th come the end of the season I would imagine.

I haven't seen more than a handful of games this season so maybe a regular match goer home and away may be able to shed some light.

I believe he is at Wolves on loan. I doubt he is a starter and im not sure if it's been mentioned anywhere but (I won't be there Saturday but for all people going) make sure he gets a big boo!!!! Haha

Let's just hope he doesn't score the winner/equaliser!

Explosive Offer from Ipswich Town FC
at 13:56 27 Oct 2015

I received an email saying there was a "explosive offer" for the Bolton game on 3rd November.

Said "Save up to 30% off tickets" but then in small writing it says "30% off is based on the adult pre-matchday ticket price in lower tiers for this fixture against the average matchday ticket price in the same areas for the 15/16 season to date"

In reality, its just the Grade C Price which isn't an "offer" let alone an explosive one? Surely this just confuses people. The marketing team at the club need to make things simpler and clearer.

Mobile Phones
at 21:03 3 Oct 2015

I currently have an Iphone 4s but its starting to have a few problems like battery life rubbish, and it doesn't hold Wifi anymore, its keeps going off after 30 mins or so if it connects at all.

I have contacted Apple and we have done a few things but no improvement and the next thing is to send it in for a service but that is about £130 which I'm reluctant to do on this old phone. I might get other problems in a few months etc.

Therefore I have been looking at phones today and I have no idea what is good, what is not. So i'm looking for a little bit of advise from some more "phone aware" people.

I am currently on an £11 a month contract with EE with Unlimited texts, 500 minutes and 500mb data. I never go over this.

The only other thing I use the phone for (apart from calls and texts) is a few apps (bank, rightmove bbc etc) the internet and checking emails. Therefore I don't really care too much about cameras (though i don't mind paying slightly more for a decent one) and music etc.

Firstly, as i'm with Apple, how hard is it to switch to Android? (i know probably a stupid question but I don't know! haha). I think I have narrowed it down to a Samsung if I am going to switch.
I also don't like the new massive phones. I would never be able to fit them in my pocket!

Looking at Carphone warehouse, I can get some cheap deals for like a Samsung Core Prime (£9.50pm), Samsung Galaxy A3 (14.99pm) and then theres slightly more expensive ones (A5 & S5 etc).

Essentially, are these phones just as good for internet etc as the more expensive ones. I appreciate they don't look as nice, or do some more fancy things?

I can get an Iphone 6 for £35 but without sounding tight, I don't think I use the phone enough to warrant paying that much. (think a 5s is around £28 or something)

I know its all personal choice etc but some of these low monthly payment phones seem to have good reviews.

Sorry for rambling but any help or advise would be appreciated!

I might have a Now TV pass available for someone.

I did the Pringles promotion thing last week and it worked, this week it doesn't seem to so it may be that you can only use one?

Therefore if anyone who didn't use one last week and wants to try it then just PM me in the next 5 mins or so!

Any tips or "must-sees" in Orlando?
at 14:07 14 Apr 2015

I know there was a thread on here long ago about someone going to Orlando, Florida and there was a fair few opinions/hints/tips but I can't seem to find the one I remember but there are a few other smaller threads.

I'm off there on 23rd April (next Thursday) and I was just wondering if anyone had any recommendationss of things to do, or things I should do/buy/book before we go (excluding hotel, transfers and flights obviously)

Its just me and the girlfriend for 11 nights (is that long enough?!?). We are staying on International Drive near Seaworld but we don't have a hire car so will just use the transport there (the hotel has a shuttle to most of the main parks.)

I was just wondering if there is any "must-do" parks/attractions, and if there are any other less obvious things we should see/go to?

Thanks
