Halloween

I am led to believe that kids are being discouraged from calling at houses to do their 'trick or treat' this year. But it depends on the threat: n Tier 1 kids can continue trick or treating as normal, but should take extra care if they are taking sweets from other homes, and make sure hands are wash...

Re: Mobile tariffs

Part of the problem is that the same, as well as different, organisations come up with rules of their own, maybe following guidelines but interpreting and implementing different ways of gathering information and applying them in a rather quirky manner. Some Taxi drivers will not allow passengers in ...

Re: Old pictures of Warrior Square

Anyway whiffler it appears that your guess that it was a seaside off-shoot of a London Club looks fairly accurate. Gentleman’s clubs were ultra-exclusive, offering high society men an escape from the pressures of work and family, with potential members judged on their eligibility by class and gender...

Re: Old pictures of Warrior Square

Good research whiffler! A club it was indeed - for men only! Your snippet says it closed late December 1981, after over a century of supplying gentlemen with an exclusive luxury club. Including a billiard room. A magnificent 5 floor building on the corner of Warrior Square and the seafront. From I. ...

Re: Mobile tariffs

To my mind the problem with 'smartphone' technology is that it is mainly open to manipulation by commercial interests that just want to exploit its capabilities, via a huge, impressionable audience. It is not alone in that respect, Connected TV (CTV) being another profitable avenue for ad-tech seeki...

Re: Old pictures of Warrior Square

UncleB does not say why he wants to see images of the building at the west corner of W.S. at the seafront. I agree that the square was laid out and completed by 1864. Probably such huge buildings were built speculatively to attract the extremely wealthy or specifically arranged as hotels. The change...

Re: Mobile tariffs

I understand that some can't live without a smartphone but I have a computer with a large screen that I can much more easily read. I have friends in Texas who call me from their 'cell-phone' every so often, I find that voice contact quite exciting enough really. Being able to get on twitter, Faceboo...
