Re: This is worth a read

In a nutshell, yes. But they've been seen to have been doing something about it which is all that matters to them. Politicians seem to appear human, but without a moral compass, or indeed a conscience. I wonder if it's a birth defect.

Re: Bravo Norway

It's November.
I live in a country with appalling weather.
Today I saw a large bumble bee in my garden.
We have lots of bee friendly plants.
We have two cars.

Re: This is worth a read

Please don't worry Kilkis - today our valiant leaders held a meeting - and, wait for it - if it doesn't pan out too good they'll have another one. Soundbites are king. It's coming up for winter, the boats will stop and we can all focus on Christmas. At least I think that's what they said...............

Re: Windows 10 is checking your every move!

Re: android tv box

After trying several builds I have opted for the Beast Encore. Not sure if this is an update, but it works like a charm. Easy to customize to your own preferences, giving it a much more personal feel. Everything working perfectly and I can recommend UKTurk tv for sport and movie streams. Will be in ...

Re: android tv box

Thanks for that - I'm just awaiting the arrival of a tv dongle for my laptop so I can install kodi on that and then try out all the different builds before installing on the box itself. Appearance wise it looked great and perhaps with a bit of mucking around I don't see any reason for it not to work...

Re: android tv box

It turns out that the beast is basically a skin which sits on top of kodi itself. I had to delete all settings which sets the box back to it's default settings and then you just start again. Every day is a school day......

Re: android tv box

Do you know how to uninstall this? It looks quite impressive but nothing works when I try to launch Sky sports, or movies, tv whatever. It doesn't get listed as an add on so how do I get rid of it?

Re: android tv box

Does this get round the multiple installing of different packages for different things? At present I use Dexter TV for sports and was told I needed Phoenix for watching films. I don't mind installing a lot of packages but if one "build" could do it all that would be pretty amazing.

Re: The End Game

Particularly worrying is the statement about action on non performing loans. Will this include mortgage arrears, as I seem to remember the troika were quite keen on tackling that particular issue. I hope it doesn't include this as the result of this would be catastrophic for this, or any government.
