Think you're confusing it with Young's - the Wandsworth-based brewer Fullers bought and closed and redeveloped the site of.

I had several visits to fix a noisy, slow, unreliable BT ADSL line. Having done everything _except_ check the socket in the house, they unscrewed its fascia. Which fell to the floor. The wires had just been touching the terminals. Are they not trained to check the basics first, before installing new cabling; climbing telegraph poles and jumping into holes in the ground?
A bit late, but still...
My wife's "mk II" Nexus 4 (the one with little "feet" on the back to reduce its tendency to slide on smooth surfaces) got the upgrade a day before my "mk I". Both are not rooted. Her update went fine, but she has fewer apps installed and uses it less than I do mine.
Mine rebooted not long after reporting "108 of 223 apps upgraded" (223 seemed far too many) and then stuck on the spinning balls start-up screen. I left it for over 12 hours, but eventually I gave up and rebooted it and it returned to the app upgrading screen, but this time reported 113 apps and completed booting successfully.
I've been very happy with it, except Tasker seems not to work with "interruptions" very well and I believe some apps have disappeared and now report "unknown error -505" when I reinstall (e.g. ITV Player).
I'm completely with you on the rule book front. A firm I had worked for had a German sister company that developed software for a section of our products. We would often find bugs due to operators doing the wrong thing and getting the system in a mess - when we reported the bugs the response would usually be that operators shouldn't be doing that, so it wasn't a bug because they weren't following instructions.
And as for crossing the road at anything other than a crossing with a green man...
Have you got the model that understands some of the basics and just turns the thermostat up a degree or two because "they're chilly" (in only a t-shirt), or the model that thinks whacking it up to 30 will make it reach 22 degrees a lot quicker?
Currently mine has not yet turned the heating back on this autumn - a record.
That doesn't define the taximeter - it defines a class of taximeter acceptable for use in Reigate & Banstead by hackney carriages. If such a definition was the crux of the case then non-hackney carriage drivers could use such a taximeter and simply cover up the word "AFARE@" and claim "it's not a taximeter".
4. This might help (MH370 arc) They seem to assume the plane must be at least as far its slowest speed would carry it in a straight line from the last known fix, therefore eliminating the middle of the arc. I don't know what justifies that decision - surely manoeuvres could mean it was closer than the distance in a straight line at its slowest speed - ie anywhere on the whole arc + flying time left.
I think this is what you're after: fish in a museum (you can even see some on the front page)
It seems to be where the NHM put all the interesting stuff when they dumbed down the main museum.
Have you seen the dinosaur exhibit now? A few interesting skeletons and an awful lot of manufactured "educational" rubbish e.g. the animated t-rex.
Nothing wrong with the visitor centre (OK - the shop's jock full of tat) at Stonehenge - it's the visitor experience that's gone to pot. You're still kept a long way from the stones and the "land trains" (presumably specified by "consultants") aren't up to the job, resulting in long queues or a long walk.
He seems to think he's the victim - he's invoking Martin Luther King
3's coverage is great in Berkshire's Most Remote Village - better than Vodafone whose HQ is not far away. Typical connection speed 13Mbps compare to my wired BT internet of 6.5Mbps. £15pcm for unlimited tetherable data. Works in my most frequented haunts - I now have internet access when I visit the parents-in-law: no need to converse any more. If their coverage works for you, I would firmly recommend 3.
[Why do I ever want 4G - can someone remind me?]
BT are hopeless - I've found I get a better response if I tweet them.
I had a good experience when I reported a cable drooping low over the road - fixed in under 3 hours - 3 vehicles and 4 men.
On the other hand when I was getting dozens of disconnections a day and only 400kbps it took them 2 visits a week apart; a dug up road; 2 rewired telegraph poles and 2 new routers - before they decided to check _their_ wiring in _my_ house (all 3 feet of it). When they unscrewed the socket from the wall it just fell to the ground - the wires weren't fixed in the terminals, just brushing them. Since they attached the wires to the terminals and refixed the socket I haven't had a problem with broadband.
Many power adapters I have (e.g. phone chargers) appear to be "upside down" in the UK, especially if the square-pin assembly (for the mains) is obviously interchangeable for other national standard pin assemblies.
It could be that elsewhere in the world your adapters are the "right way up", but for some reason dear old Blighty's standards mean they're incongruous over here.
