Положение рубля достаточно стабильно, однако без доллара России не обойтись, считают эксперты

Положение рубля достаточно стабильно, однако без доллара России не обойтись, считают эксперты

Депутат Госдумы от фракции ЛДПР Михаил Дегтярёв подготовил законопроект, запрещающий оборот и хранение долларов США на территории России. В документе подчёркивается, что ограничения коснутся исключительно американской валюты, а евро, фунты стерлингов, юани и др. будут использоваться так же, как и раньше.

Политик полагает, что сейчас позиции доллара нестабильны и валюта не застрахована от краха. Дегтярёв с помощью такого законопроекта планирует оградить россиян от финансового кризиса, который может быть спровоцирован резким падением курса доллара.

«Если госдолг США будет расти, то крах долларовой системы произойдёт уже в 2017 году.… Click here to continue reading this article

British Politics: UKIP and Nigel Farage. Credible or not?

British Politics: UKIP and Nigel Farage. Credible or not?

For our friends in places other than the UK, Nigel Farage is the leader of a political party called UKIP: The UK Independence Party.

UKIP currently has 11 of the 73 UK seats in the European Parliament following the 2009 elections and subsequent changes. It also has three members in the House of Lords, all the result of defections.

The party also has one seat in the Northern Ireland Assembly, due to a defection by former Ulster Unionist Party MLA David McNarry in October 2012.… Click here to continue reading this article

Forum Moderators Guide – How to be a Good Forum Moderator

The Moderators guide below was originally taken from several large forums with over a million posts between them.

It was further tweaked as a result of the published guidelines of several ‘big boards’ that have each around a million posts.

It was later honed and tweaked by a published author who administrates three large forums. This is the current exact version his forums use.

If you are new to managing forums, you need to outline to your staff what exactly you expect of them. You cannot expect them to guess or know already.… Click here to continue reading this article

Paypal Access Card Problems: Transaction Declined – Money Taken

Are you having problems with your Paypal Access MasterCard?

I have started to refer to mine as the “no access” card. Rather often I am getting ‘transaction declined’ notices for no clear reason. Who needs a debit card that is unreliable?

If you have a Paypal Access Mastercard (PrePay Solutions), do PLEASE be aware that it wont always work and you must always have back up funds on you! Never rely on this card for subscriptions to anything, either.

PayPal Access MasterCard

A few days ago, my Paypal Master Card was declined (again) in Morrisons supermarket (which isn’t very cool because it makes you look like a skint member) but this time, they took they money from the Paypal account!… Click here to continue reading this article

Dyson ‘Special Offer’ Service Telephone Calls are a Scam.

Why do we say to you that cold-calling telephone sales people who want to service your Dyson are a scam?

Well, first of all – they are NOT from Dyson! 

When you have the “fly-by-night” cowboys in your home to do a twenty minute Dyson DC07 service, they will not do a proper job.

“Why not?” you may ask. Well, the reason is, that with a Dyson DC07, a professional service involves stripping the cyclone down and cleaning it – preferably with a power washer or a steam cleaner – to restore optimal performance.… Click here to continue reading this article

TomTom Start 20 Sat Nav Review – Beware! Item Not Fit For Purpose!

If you are seeking a satellite navigation device, you could do far better than buying a TomTom Start 20 model. I bought one today and it is a big thumbs down already. I do not recommend you buy one.

Fundamentally, the product is not fit for purpose as it is sold. Here is why.

I got the version with 45 European maps on. I actually wanted one with world maps (or USA at least as I visit there). However, I couldn’t find such a version online at reasonable money, and the guy in Halfords (yes, I know) said they could be downloaded from the TomTom website in exchange for money.… Click here to continue reading this article

An interview with James Dyson

James Dyson has made millions by allowing us to see the dirt we suck up. As he calls for more inventors, Lucy Siegle asks him about manufacturing abroad, design disasters and whether he could build a nuclear reactor.

I am at Dyson HQ in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, the beacon of British industrialism, which is not a dark satanic mill but all light, contoured glass and bridges over placid water between sculptures. This is the birthplace of the bagless, see-through vacuum cleaner that offers 100% suction (so well known it need only be referred to as “the Dyson”) and the planet’s most powerful hand dryer, the Airblade.… Click here to continue reading this article

Landsbanki Guernsey Depositors To Get Another 17.5% Of Their Money Back

Depositors in the unsecured Guernsey-based Landsbanki Bank that went bankrupt after the corrupt Icelandic government pulled the plug on it by nationalising its parent company in 2008 are to receive another 17.5% of their money back in February 2011.

The administrators Deloitte will be writing to depositors shortly to tell them how to claim the money. Here are the details:

  • The fourth payment of 17.5p/£, which will be made “as soon as possible after 7 February 2011 and after receipt of each depositor’s account details“.  They’ll shortly be writing to depositors about the process for the payment, and including a statement of account as at 19 January 2011.

Guernsey Commissioner’s Meeting 19th Jan 2011 about failed Landsbanki Islands Icelandic Bank

The Landsbanki Depositors Action group has been doing some good work since 2008 in seeking to reunite savers with the Guernsey-based failed Landsbanki Bank (did we mention it was in the very unsafe banking “haven” of Guernsey?) with their cash. Unfortunately, they have sought to exclude some Landsbanki savers from their secret action website because some of  those who wanted to participate were denied entry because they would not disclose personal financial details to the unknown action group proprietors. It is sad that some Landsbanki Guernsey savers were excluded in this way, but thanks to connections made on other websites, with other depositors, some of them are staying in the loop.… Click here to continue reading this article

DHL Manchester Collection Problems December

Yesterday the 6th December and today the 7th December, DHL have suspended collections from some parts of Manchester. Predictably, one of the areas affected is that covered by the notorious Ashton Service Centre.

DHL have not bothered to tell anyone about this though. Affected businesses have not been informed by DHL and are just sitting waiting for the yellow van to arrive.  It isn’t coming today! Like it didn’t come yesterday!

One of the parcel companies who resell DHL deliveries posted this today on their website:

The recent spout of bad weather and the effects of the backlog from last week continue to cause problems across the DHL Domestic network, their depots and the sorting hubs.

France and Paypal Scam

Anyone who does business online will have encountered Paypal and their unusual policies including random account freezing and illegally withholding money.

I use them as little as possible nowadays as they cannot be trusted, are VERY expensive and one must pull all kinds of stunts to stop them having access to your card details and bank account details.  I find it wise to sweep the account out daily and never leave too much money in there. When the account has money in is when they freeze it with some BS excuse.… Click here to continue reading this article

HDNL Home Delivery Network Slow Delivery Problems

They are cheaper than DHL, and are rumoured to be taking over DHL (god help us!). The hopelessly inefficient HDNL Home Delivery Network is getting worse and worse.

A perfectly standard package recently took two weeks from London to Manchester. Ye gods, we could have walked faster.

Unfortunately, this is typical. There appears to be a lack of general common sense going on at HDNL. We have a retail premises that is only open between 10am and 4pm. It’s a six hour window isn’t it? Not altogether unreasonable. We always ensure the packages are clearly labelled DRIVER: BETWEEN 10-4 ONLY!Click here to continue reading this article

Mercedes Rotating Star Screensaver

Mercedes Rotating Star Screensaver!

In the early 2000’s, Mercedes enthusiasts were passing around this screensaver on the owners club forums. Everyone loved it — it was a classic. However, it only worked on Windows 95 and Windows 98 machines.

By the time Windows XP came along, it wouldn’t work any more as the file format differed. Everyone thought it was lost forever and the various Mercedes forums are still littered with topics asking for it.

Recently, I was clearing out some old floppy discs, and I found the disc I had from back then with this screensaver on.… Click here to continue reading this article
