  • If someone worked non managerial all their life in retail is that a waste of life?

    Simple answer, no. We work to live, we don't live to work. Your job does not define you, it does not describe you. It's just something you do to earn money.

  • Fair wear and Tear after 5 years in house?

    As a landlord, I'm actually quite disgusted that your landlord has done nothing towards the upkeep of the house in 5 years.

    As a landlord, I'm actually quite disgusted that your landlord has done nothing towards the upkeep of the house in 5 years. I replace carpets every 3 years and would certainly expect to have to do this after 5 (or more) years without charging my tenant. If you're not allowed to decorate then you can't be expected to maintain the decoration. The best you can do is wipe down the walls. This may save an argument. Tiles can and should be replaced individually. You should not pay towards a kitchen refit as this constitutes an improvement, not maintenance. Technically, you should clean the carpets if you are contracted to do so, but if they are threadbare then there is an argument that this is wasted money (if the carpets needs replacing). You can not be charged for anything that you reported to the landlord as broken. Worth giving the garden a little tidy if you have time, but simple removal of rubbish should do. That depends on what your contract explicitly states is required of you. I doubt you'd be expected to power wash the drive for example! In short I think you should be ok, but that does not mean your landlord will agree. I would always recommend talking openly with your landlord about your concerns and maybe compromise i.e. offer to pain a wall or too yourself if necessary. Worth also checking out if your deposit is held by an independent third party as this is now required by law. If it isn't, then your landlord has no claim on any of your deposit ;-) Good luck.

  • A way to find out who just bought a new domain?

    Most companies share contact information with other companies.

But somewhere among all the other crap, it will say something like "we may share your information with 'selected' partners". Steve.

  • No MX or A record?

    Some response messages can be misleading. And situations like this are usually transient in nature and may be down to Citibank's hosting company changing some settings. I would give it 24 hours then try again. I'll bet that it simply works after this. Everything seems fine with their setup... check the link below

  • Is the university experience worth more, or a degree you'll enjoy more?

    I studied Linguistics at Manchester University - 96 girls 4 boys. Hated the place, hated the people - enjoyed the subject, but that wasn't enough. Quit after 18 months, now a degree-less, but successful IT Director. Degrees aren't worth the paper they're written on. Follow you heart. Steve.

    Best answer: Wow - big topic, but I'll try a simple answer. Websites are written in HTML An example of HTML is <span>Some Text</span> This outputs in a browser as simply, "Some Text" <span></span> tells the browser that this is a bit in the middle is text. ASP.NET is also used to write web sites and is a language written by Microsoft. ASP.NET allows you to write extensive code and logic on the server that determines what any web page looks like. For example: If (UserName = "Steve") { output="<span>Hello, Steve</span>" } Else { output = "<span>Hello</span>" } Ultimately, ASP.NET spits out HTML based on the logic you build. This is far from a comprehensive answer, just a starter for 10. Many developers will sneer at my answer. But I am a developer and use ASP.NET. This is my explanation for a 5 year old ;-)

  • Is meat bad for you? Am I eating too much?

    I appreciate that with orthorexia any advice I give may well be dismissed, but suffice it to say that meat is not bad for you. For some comfort, look at the history of the human species.

    I appreciate that with orthorexia any advice I give may well be dismissed, but suffice it to say that meat is not bad for you. For some comfort, look at the history of the human species. We have incisors (the pointy teeth) in our mouths which through evolution have developed specifically to chew meat. We are carnivores by nature and our bodies have evolved to expect meat - and quite a bit of it. I know it's easy to say, but try to look at the positives in food groups. Rather than asking if something is bad, ask what it gives you. Meat gives you protein which enables your muscles to build or rebuild themselves. Everything in moderation is what most people say - and I agree with that - but what you are asking is what is moderation? Listen to your body. If you're full, stop eating. If you fancy a steak, have a steak. If you fancy some fruit, have some fruit. Your body is the most natural thing in the world and has the most honest way of communicating with you :-) Steve.

If they're more modern then you may have a chance. If you're going for a media centre - try installing Plex.

S stupidly started at the age of 27 and now at 39 I'm struggling to stop even with the aid of e-Cigs. e-Cigs are just as addictive (if not more so) as they're easier to smoke (indoors etc...) that is, until the government changes the legislation - which they undoubtedly will!
