That last response looks suspiciously like an advert to me.

Any progress on the "Go to first unread"?  I'm going to be away for a week and trying to find the relevant point in long topics when I get back is going to be a total nightmare.  I won't have access to t'interweb while I'm away.

Bee witched and sanjy67 - hovering is a function that isn't possible to do on mobile or tablet device. As we look to introduce functionality that's useful on all devices, hovering isn't something we're prioritising at the moment.

See original post

 Sorry that's a cop out.  I suspect the vast majority of us still use standard computers, and to discount a widely used feature because it can't be used on a minority of devices really isn't an acceptable reason. I would say it's probably the most useful feature of many sites as it avoids the need to click to open and then close items which turn out to be of no interest.

It's called a*s covering.  I think just apply with a dollop of common sense and try to remember not to drink it.

See original post

 Very good advice.  I don't normally read the small print anyway, and now I remember why.

Just had a good chuckle at that Safety Sheet.  I'll have to make sure the missus gets fully kitted up before she uses bleach again.

We're going away for a wedding in Cyprus in a few days time.  As the weather was warming up and I have a load of new plants plus the veggie patch to look after I decided to invest in a soaker hose and timer.  What happens then?  Need you ask?  The temperature drops 10 degrees and it starts p.p.p.p.p,p.persisting down!!!!!!!  Don't you just love the British summer

Having read the information about the protection advised for using Kurtail I'm a bit apprehensive about going down that route.  Has anybody here actually used it, and if so what protective measures did you take.

The Kurtail info suggest you almost need to wear full bio-hazard protection.

I am getting utterly sick of this!  4th month in a row with problems over delivery.  Subs department said they would put it back onto Royal Mail delivery as the courier system clearly isn't working.  Maybe they forgot to change it!

Looks like deja vu all over again!

Has anybody else not yet received their June subscription copy?

I have the luxury of being recently retired and having a car sat there just begging to be driven.
