  1. I’ve got a Hikvision kit from https://www.cctvkits.co.uk and I can’t fault it. Fairly easy to setup, chose a large hard drive which gives me about three weeks recording with 4 HD cameras. I have an app on my phone so that from anywhere in the world I can see a live stream from each camera. The cameras I bought all have night vision which isn’t bad, not sure you would be able to use them in court to identify a burglar unless they were up close but in daytime mode you would. It’s more about spotting something wrong and being able to act on it. On that note you can configure triggers that send emails when the camera picks something up but I have the basic cameras and this functionality is basic (and rubbish). Essentially you draw an area in the camera’s field of vision which you want to trigger an alarm if someone walks into it. The more expensive cameras intelligently detect movement and trigger the alarm whereas mine simply look for a change in the pixels. After half an hour setting up trigger areas I found I was inundated with trigger emails because the sun was in and out of clouds and the shadows were being interpreted as pixel changes and thus an intruder. I mention it because if this is important for you please get the more expensive cameras or a PIR sensor to add to the system. Anyway, very happy with the Hikvision kit, good admin interface, easy setup, good quality recording, remote viewing and fairly cheap, think I paid about £300 all in including four cameras.
  2. I’ve done exactly the same! Threw the stupid thing in the bin afterwards.
  3. Screwfix had a poster up advertising one on Friday, think it was £70.
  4. Sounds like they found the needed sweet spot between May being able to sack him and “plug the embarrassing leak” and there being grounds for the police to step in, investigate and expose the fact that the leak was from elsewhere.
  5. If it’s noisy enough to make a banging sound (and knowing the build quality of “new builds”) it sounds as though the vertical runs haven’t been clipped at all. You could try to pinpoint the location of the pipes, locate the studs either side and cut a couple of holes at skirting level (after whipping off the skirting board). You might be able to access the pipes and slide lagging onto them and slide it up over the pipe behind the wall by working it through the hole. Then attach the skirting board again to hide the holes. Might be worth a try before making any holes that are trickier to hide.

  7. Nilfisk. Even the smallest of the range has an all metal pump and internals which are prone to fail on the plastic equivalent Karchers.

    This. How on earth are they supposed to prove you haven’t paid? Are they supposed to provide copies of their bank statements and till receipts showing that you DON’T appear on them? Whilst it might be annoying to you any sensible person will see that the sensible solution is to prove you paid which is far quicker and easier for you to do. Then do yourself a favour, prove to them that you’ve paid and then write to the practice owner to say they have lost your business because of their bad attitude. Then go elsewhere.

    Leaving Neverland

    Completely agree, we will never know for sure but what I cannot get out of my head is how broken and upset the two men were in the documentary recounting the alleged abuse. My opinion having seen the program is that they were not lying. What I did find interesting is that with social media these days and countless “celebrity” shows on TV every day I’ve always considered the obsession with “celebrity” to be a modern phenomenon. This documentary showed the same obsession was alive and kicking back in the 90’s. The parents of these boys were absolutely star struck and were living the high life following Jackson around. 5-star hotels and private jets for years and even houses bought for them. They were so blinded by celebrity and money they failed their children.
  11. Just finished this on All 4... disgusting, infuriating and so sad. What were these poor boys’ parents thinking letting them sleep in a room with a grown man. Disgusting nonce.

    Agree, huge Partridge fan here and this didn’t flow naturally. I’ll keep watching but first impression was disappointing.
