  1. Bidding for upgrades - any "knack" to it?

    Hhhmm good call. Decided to book the legroom Seat in the upper deck instead
  2. Never come across it before but just booked a Virgin Atlantic flight and I see an option to bid for an upgrade. Is it literally a case of start low and just keep going up until you get bored or do you only have 1 shot at it?
  3. Venice....any inputs?

    Does the Hotel Metropole have a grand ambience to it? The pix look lovely! In early stages of planning a trip there for next year as per othe thread
  4. Have already absorbed the Venice thread previously and Metropole hotel is noted. I wanted to plan (ahead) for about 5 days for our 20th Wedding Anniversary Was thinking Lake Garda for couple days, day trip to Verona (Romeo and Juliet) and then 3 days in Venice as per the other thread. Ive done some homework and South part of the lake seems to be where I would be better placed due to transport but beyond that....
  5. Fernando Alonso to quit F1 at the end of this season.

    It was inevitable but I do feel sorry for him and for the sport in general that we don't get to see the best drivers battle it out properly. Talent lost from the sport
  6. Car shampoo for jet wash lances?

    Eh? Separate Foam and Shampoo? I thought the foam WAS the shampoo/cleaner? If not then what does it do? I'm lazy and just want a rinse, foam, rinse product ideally :-)
  7. Car shampoo for jet wash lances?

    Having busted out the new Nilfisik over the weekend just a quick question to ask which shampoo do you guys and gals use in your pressure washer bottles to get a good foam/lather?
  8. Roof Bars Conundrum

    ooh I like those - good call boys! We have the connector on the back of it for a trailer Any idea where I could hire a trailer from? I will put out feelers - Although I now think I was being a bit silly and should easily be able to accomodate that luggae wth the 3rd rown of seats down and some Tetris packing
  9. Roof Bars Conundrum

    Yeah its a 2014 Outlander so I thought it was 80kg too. There will only be 4 suitcases in total anyway (plus couple Pullmans) so I'd have thought max on top would be 2 biggies anyway
  10. Roof Bars Conundrum

    Wife and kids have a flight from Gatwick so I have to cram 4 suitcases and whatever else she is planning to pack into the back of out 5+2 Outlander with the rear seats down. I thought it might be okay but I'm now not so sure. The car has flush-fit roof rails and I see 2 points on either side where I assume appropriate roof rails will fit so I guess I have a contingency at the last minute if I need to be bailed out BUT - eerrms never fitted them, never loaded luggage on them and never driven with roof-loaded luggage (for a 200-odd mile motorway journey) So - I clearly need to source appropriate roof rack to be able to but fairly quickly if required. What else so I need in terms of making sure the load is secure? I am guessing it will also make an almightly racket....I get that there are "aero" rails but don't really want to spend too much on an stop-gap measure
  11. Boxing thread

    Great - yeah I have 10pm as the ballpark but with. 6pm start I wasn’t too sure
  12. Boxing thread

    What time is the AJ fight likely to be tomorrow and any other stand outs from the under card?
  13. CCTV might be getting hacked

    I initially bought it as it seemed to be the most highly regarded and the only one with windows mobile app.
  14. CCTV might be getting hacked

    Never did update this thread. Updated the firmware which allowed strong passwords and all was well again so yes it was getting hacked and reset - HiKVision apparently knew about it hence the firmware
  15. Driving mode on Android or iPhone?

    Right - have sorted it. Driving Mode on Do not Disturb set to Bluetooth; then siri to allow unlocked THEN you have to set in imessage notifications previews: always That was the clincher. I can go back to enjoying the phone now (Do not disturb for overnight is a great feature when on call!)
