After election of Donald Trump, by minus 3,000,000 votes, we moved our site from dangerous, bankrupt USA to the criminally doubly indebted UK - on; faster, cheaper, more flexible, more secure, higher capacity, more under our control servers.

Scotland EnglandThe UK government allow the North of England to secede from the UK & join Scotland

The deliberations in Westminster are becoming increasingly irrelevant to the North of England. The Northern cities feel far greater affinity with their Scottish counterparts such as Glasgow and Edinburgh than with the ideologies of the London-centric south... more

Switch and save £££

Better still - use less power

QUESTION: Power supplies / mains adapters / transformers (6 v, 9 v, 12 v) why are they warm - when plugged in to equipment that is OFF?

i.e. If you are not using them are they still burning electricity - and burning a hole in your pocket?

ANSWER: Yes - they are warm because you are paying £££ to waste electricity. Unplug power supplies even if the equipment is OFF.

TIP: Get a power strip (multiple plug thingy) so you can unplug many things by unplugging just one plug - the easier it is the more times you will do it. Plug things you know are safe to unplug in the power strip (e.g. not your tropical fish heater). Unplugging stuff at night also helps with fire safety.

Each year we sleep 2,920 hours but leave many power supplies on. We go to work leaving the same power supplies on - in total 6,000 hours of wasted electricity - your wasted cash. Personally I spend the money I save on lovely beer - but if you don't like ice cold, sparkling amber, tasty beer - it's up to you.

If you keep forgetting to switch things off - or it's just a right pain - get a timer plug - that unplugs the lot at say 1:00 AM. TIP: Anything you would not like to be unceremoniously switched off (e.g. your computer) put on a different power strip.

Wythenshawe Hospital

(Continued from Page 1). When I was around 10 they fixed my belly button (apparently I had an umbilical hernia from birth - sounds more complicated than it was - I didn't even know I had it).

When I was 36, they fixed my ankle - I nearly broke it - I went over on it when I accidentally stood on a small football; while I was playing in the back garden (it swelled up like a giant purple balloon).

Then I hit my thumb nail with a hammer (don't ask) and a nice nurse fixed my blood blister and saved my nail from coming off (which I'm sure would is unpleasant). Who hasn't used Wythenshawe hospital more than once?

Go with a friend - the more the merrier. 

Swimming is very good exercise - but so is walking. Instead of waiting for the bus - walk to the next stop (I did - and I enjoyed it that much, when the bus caught up with me, I decided to walk the rest of the way).
