  1. Hi all, Just wanted to say what a great community this is and what a lot of help you have all been to us. Unfortunately due to the arrogance of my partner we no longer have our beautiful girls and the family of foxes finally got them. I wish everyone the best with their girls and makes sure you dont end up with a story like ours, I have added my eglu to the sale section, if anyone wants it please give me a sensible offer. Thanks again, Karl
  2. I'm afraid I cannot sign this or pass it on, we have had fireworks ever since I was little, none of our animals are frightened by them, in fact our shar pei was sat our on our decking watching them........... I think this country is getting far to PC with everything, "you cant do that" "you cant say that" "you cant have these" Although I do agree that there should be tougher rules on who can sell them, but I dont agree that no-one should be able to have them.......I also think we are losing far too much of our "englishness" Just my thoughts.....
  3. I went for the 6.06 version, but I think I will reinstall with the latest version as this install is only on a usb hard drive (although very fast I want to use my internal laptop hd)..... I am very impressed too, a few things seem a bit strange like wireless security, seems a little lacking, but thats maybe only in 6.06 but I soon sorted that out with an easy download of a bit of software.........I am considering using it as our desktop / laptop operating system for our office as it seems much more stable than windows, plus having XP in vmware means I havent lost anything........Do any of you have any expereince with "WINE"??? If so would one of you try an application for me, im not sure if its just me or if it plain just doesnt work.......Its only a simple instant messenger that we use for corporate use but I just cant get it to work at all.......... Apart from that im really pleased with how its running, glad you posted this thread as it was this that made me try ubuntu....... Karl
  4. Ive just decided to dump windows in favour of ubuntu too...... Got almost everything running that I did have on windows and its now at least 10x faster and free Plus I have Windows xp running on a virtual machine which is just as quick as it ever was Just need to check that my printer prints when im in the office
  5. Thats very interesting clip, thanks for that........ I guess I never realised quite how "mass" produced meat was........ Thats a good point about the omlet chicks, maybe someone at omlet can give you all some information about how they are reared.......
  6. Hi guys......The address to see the party will be http://halloween.2-source.com Not sure if there will be sound yet but you should be able to move the camera around Have fun and let me know how well it works
  7. I really hate clowns and puppets.......The one of the smirnoff advert makes me shudder.......
  8. I wanted to do something with the left over bits for me, not them they et enough treats
  9. Not sure if anyon will know the answer to this but.......Whats the difference between the large pumpkins in the supermakets and then the ones that are marked as "edible" does that mean that the large ones are not edible???
  10. Hi Guys, I have been carving pumkins for my upcoming halloween party.......Is there anything I can do with the seeds and other left over bits? As I have over 6 and it seems like an awful waste if I can do something with the bits from inside......
  11. Does that version of linux have some kind of x-windows interface though? The reason I ask is that I want to run an asterisk phone system but they come with various different versions of linux and I wanted to know the easiest way of accessing the net as well.......as the computer would be a waste just using it as a phone system.......
  12. I would recommend Netgear......Good overall and not hugely expensive.......Not sure how they work with Linux, but that should be an issue, Neatgear are massive....... I would be really interested on what brower you are using with linux and if you are using some kind of x-windows to run everything on........
  13. I dont like the big displays, and the council run one in hull is just awful, huge waste of money and its very impressive and they start it about 6pm...... We had a very good display at our house last year, everyone chipped in and ours was far better than any local ones we could have gone too, people have to remember that they can be dangerous, we cant ban everything in this country and people just need to take more responsibility or the government needs to up the age to 21 to buy these kinds of things. We have had fireworks at home since I can remember and we have never had any problems and dont know anyone who has, but they have to be handled with care. I agree though its very annoying when people let them off during the day, seems like a waste of money to me.
  14. Thats quite good I always make such a mess of folding t-shirts and the like, will give this a proper try, although not as neat as their example much better than I normally do
  15. Our friend has a large pet shop, Omlet told him they didnt bulk sell to anyone and that they where the only company who sold the products......Wonder if this is changing or if they are adding a bit on for hens and setup or something.......
  16. If you will be dealing with other businesses I would say its almost a must. We try not to deal with any company we cant claim vat back from......But if your dealing with general consumers it can be an advantage not to be registered........I think the turnover is something like £65,000??? not 100% on that though......
  17. If you need anymore advise we have done it quite a few times now having various types of businesses, so if there is anything either of us can help with just ask...... As for registering a company have a look here http://www.uk-plc.net/startup/ we use them for our company secretary work and registered office, they are really helpful. Registering for VAT can take months so if you think you will need to be do it from the start, if you are thinking of starting up early next year, I would think about registering soon as possible as it can be very inconvenient if they drag their feet over it........Last time we registered a company for VAT it took about 4 months and that was only last year....... Good luck with it and if you need any help or advise give me a shout.... Karl
  18. Ours "sings" like that too.......Although he cant dance as good
  19. I havent used it for a bit again, but it really does help when I do use it.......I can choose to be snappy now I will be using it again though as I can feel myself slowing down and getting more and more tired.......
  20. I'm sure you will find him soon........One of ours has a habit of doing a runner........ Hope you find him soon.....
  21. I was the same........Took a while before I realised what it meant...... I was a little when I said to Andy about it, he just at me LOL
  22. That is very funny, we both had a good laugh at that
  23. Here is a pic of him......Theres another on on my album too......(ignore the date and time of the pic, it was this year and I rarely see 5am) http://club.omlet.co.uk/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=14529
  24. Did I hear someone mention my name Yes we have a Shar pei, hes lovely......very gentle and protective, he used to sit by my sisters babies pram and watch over her....... They seem to get a bad name for being aggressive, but all the ones I have ever seen are the total opposite, they where used as guard dogs as they can be trained to pretty much anything (if they chose too) so I think thats where that idea came from....... £400 seems very cheap for one if its parents have been entered into crufts, one thing to look out for is that it (the pup) is registered with the kennel club as a lot of breeders restrict the dogs they sell so that their pups cannot be registered. A registered breeder also agrees to breed out the problems and breed stronger dogs and not dogs that have suffered from breed specific illnesses. I would definately recommend one to anyone as they are really lovely dogs, but anyone thinking about getting one must realise that they can and do suffer from skin problems and other illnesses plus they dont live as long as other breeds. Most have their eyes tacked to help with eye problems but they can also suffer with their eyes.
  25. Honestly its my first proper attempt.....I did use a template so it wasnt completely free hand.........We are planning to have quite a few more, ill post the pics up after the party cos I have a couple of people coming from here so I dont want to spoil it for them
