    iOS 7

    Well my update fucked it and I lost all push notifications as well as FaceTime and iMessage. Perfect really. Having been on various forums I've now sorted it but had to reluctantly restore to factory settings. Not a massive deal, but adding all the music and vids back on is a bit of a shit. Anyhoo... Liking the new design and that.

    Have a rant thread

    BT. I don't understand how this fucking shambles of a company manages to stay in business. I moved house and needed a new phone line and broadband put in. I was given an appointment and both were being done on the same day. In the morning the phone line goes in, and in the afternoon Mr Internet is due to turn up. I took a day off work. First thing in the morning the fella turns up for the phone line. No problems there. I ask him if the b/band will be going in and he tells me that yes, an engineer is booked. Lovely. Well time starts ticking on so I call up, just to make sure that the engineer is coming. I'm told, again, that an engineer is booked. Didn't turn up, obviously. So I call in the next day and have a little rant, and they tell me that the next appointment is 2 weeks down the line so I go up and up the chain of command until I reach someone who handles the complaint and says they'll try to get an engineer out in the next few days but can't make any promises. A few days later, I get a call on my mobile from another mobile number I don't know. It's the OpenReach engineer who's just letting me know he'll be at my house in 10 minutes. I had no idea they were coming so I rushed home (after attempting to get friends or relatives there to no avail). I work an hour away from home, and my wife and kid work and go to nursery nearby. So I drive back, get the broadband installed, and then have to drive into work again. Amounting to basically another half-day off work. My boss is loving me. Finally, to rub salt into the wounds, a few days I'm using the phone at home on a conference call and the phone line goes dead. And stays dead. I report the fault which is fixed 4 days later. My attempts at getting compensation for time off work, petrol, and losing touch with a client during a conference call largely fell on deaf ears. The offered me 2, then 3 months free broadband. I finally got 3 months plus 3 month line rental. Shambles.

    Summer 2013 Transfer Thread

    It would have been sensible for Moyes to keep the staff at United. They're a winning football team with a winning coaching team. Now they're the just the former. That's not to say it's a huge fuck up by Moyes, but it certainly give the opportunity for a huge fuck up. Which is brilliant really. Let's be honest, if Moyes had gone there and kept the backroom staff then we'd all be slightly more 'worried' about it. What he's done gives us the small glimmer of hope that they're going to be shit next season.

    Life's too short for....

    Quite right. I used to get a skewer and patiently unclog the burner, which was a pain and often didn't work all the way round. Then one day recently I tried a jetwasher and it changed my life. Works on the grill too.

    Gus Poyet

    Yeah it was talking to Reading being in breach of his contract. He also didn't do himself many favours by seemingly blaming the chairman for the play-off defeat saying that he didn't have enough backing. While in the brand new stadium that just had it's capacity increased after 1 season.

    Amazing restaurants, but never been on a real drinking session there. If you like sushi then go to Morimoto. Best I've ever had. There's a guy who owns loads of restaurants in Philly... I think his name is Phillip Stark... if you eat at one of them then you won't go wrong. Also, if you're planing on doing a bit of shopping then go to the King of Prussia mall which is about half an hour away. Huge. All other tips on the thread are good. It's a decent place and the locals are very friendly.

    I used to do it and had a break for about 2 years. I was worried that I'd struggle to get the hang of it again... ...but it was just like riding a bike really.

    The world of a woman.

    A girl I met recently had no idea that leather came from animals. "I thought it just existed".

    I will add to the Lake Como shout. Amazing place, and then you could drive down to Florence or somewhere like that for a bit of culture!

    XBMC Pop Up Messages

    Try disabling the metadata. That helps it on ATV. I've never had much luck finding sporting streams on there. Navi-x used to be good but it seems to have lost its ability to stream live tv. Used to have fox s**cer channel which was always a pretty good bet for live ball-based sport predominantly involving the feet.

    PDF Escape

    I use PDF merge which you'll find easily enough through google. Very lightweight program and works very well. Also, I would recommend you obtain foxit reader and a replacement for Adobe. It'll change your life*. *It won't. But it's much faster thank adobe reader and has a lot of cool features to it.

    Best phone out there right now?

    Yeah I travel fairly often. America mainly. As an aside, 4G is pretty amazing if you haven't used it. I'm just pulling your chain really Code... I knew you'd defend your opinion to the hilt despite overwhelming evidence that, actually, the Nokia Lumia is a piece of badly polished turd.

    Best phone out there right now?

    ...still the best phone out there right now though. Even though you have to play with the settings or the battery dies? I guess we have different criteria.
