Munich airport transfer times (Lufthansa)

Looking to travel to Florence next month and Lufthansa via Munich is looking like the best option. It's an official connection but it's just 1h10mins between arriving from DUB and leaving for FLR and about the same on the way back. Is that a comfortable amount of time? Seems a bit tight even for

Replacing immersion heater thermostat

The thermostat on the immersion seems to be broken. Scalding hot water! I don't do DIY so I'm wondering if it's dangerously insane to attempt it myself? A quick scan of the internet suggests it's a doddle, and the materials cheap, but I'm not sure I fancy messing with electricity/water! :eek: No

Nespresso Vertuo

So I was in the Nespresso store on Duke St today and found a whole new range of pods and machines called Vertuo! Bigger and more expensive by the look of it. Found a light hearded review here https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2017/oct/25/kitchen-gadgets-review-vertuo-coffee-machine-the-fina

Great big outage?

Hi there All services via my digibox dropped out at around 19:15 this evening. There seems to be a spike in Twitter activity along the same lines so I'm assuming it's not my digibox. I know you won't see this until Monday but I'm just checking if you have technical staff on call to deal with out o

BBC World no longer available?

BBC World ceased transmission in Astra SD yesterday. Is it intended to make the HD channel available? BBC World is one of the more important global news channels and it's absence would be a significant gap in the news channel offering. BBC UK news isn't a suitable alternative for global news

Affinity Photo

Does anyone here use Affinity photo - a €55 alternative to Photoshop? It seems to get good reviews. I own Lightroom outright and it covers almost all my needs but I occasionally need something like content aware fill and liquify. But I find it hard to justify a CC subscription for those rare occa

PC for photo editing

My aging laptop is starting to slow down and cause me frustration. I want to replace it and as I never move it, I think I'll get more bang for my bucks with a PC. I'm thinking minimum 12Gb and a fast i5 chip. Better with 16Gb and i7? 512Gb SSD and USB3 are the only other things I can think of

More diversity in News Channels

It would be really good to see more variety, geographically and ideologically available on the Virgin platform. How about Fox, RT, Al Jazeera, France 24, CNC World etc? Apart from Fox, I think the rest are FTA?
