Yesterday at 06:17 PM What was a tumbler closet? by yoller

I've been looking at some information on the old 'court' style housing in Birkenhead around the middle to late 19th century. They were mostly overcrowded, insanitary slums which had shared outside privies. Among the various privies listed for some properties are ash pits, water closets and tumbler closets. Does anyone know what a tumbler closet was?

22nd Jul 2014 10:24pm Independant Dog Rescue by panoolied

This is my friends dog rescue.

Myself and another friend help her out with firewood - found trees and donated pallets and the like. If anyone knows of any in the wallasey area would you please either let me know here or on her facebook page?

Also, we can move some of it ourselves but if anyone has a large car or van access, that would be incredible helpful.

Thank you for reading smile

22nd Jul 2014 6:34pm Online Piracy Is No Longer Illegal in the UK by eddtheduck

The British government has finally decriminalized online video game, music and movie piracy, a move that goes against other anti-piracy efforts within the UK.

According to the decision, starting in 2015, file sharers that keep downloading content from the Internet will be sent up to four letters of warning, explaining that their actions are, in fact, illegal. However, if the notes go ignored, nothing will happen.

The Creative Content UK is a result of a collaboration between British Internet providers, politicians and the movie and music industries. While the big providers such as BT, Virgin, Sky, and TalkTalk have already signed the agreement, but all the rest are expected to join in too.

The government pledged £3.5 million ($5.98 million/ €4.43 million) for the funding of the education awareness part of the campaign.

Basically, Creative Content UK is comprised of two components. One of them is the alert system and the letters sent to subscribers, as listed above, while the second is an awareness campaign led by content creators. The entire purpose of it all is to fight online copyright infringement through education.

The reasoning is that encouraging consumers and informing them about the copyright issues will help shape the future generation of Internet users.

“The Creative Sector is a key driver of the UK economy contributing £8m to the UK economy every hour and underpinning over 1.5m jobs. Copyright is the foundation on which the Creative industries stand and we must ensure it remains strong and continues to support the growth of the sector. The alert programme shows industry working together to develop solutions which support the long-term health of the UK's creative industries. It will play a central role in raising awareness of copyright and pointing people toward legal ways to access content and I welcome this effort,” said Saji Javid, Culture Secretary.

The Creative Content UK was founded by the Motion Picture Association, the British Recorded Music Industry, as well as BT, Sky Broadband, TalkTalk and Virgin Media, the latter being Internet providers. There’s also some backing from organizations across the creative community, including the BBC, Equity, Pact the Premier League, UK Music and more.

“This is just one piece of the overall approach to tackling illegal online infringement and promoting the importance of copyright. This will enable consumers to receive the best possible user experience and sustains the UK’s creative community and economy, incentivising the creation of new movies and other creative content,” said Chris Marcich, president and managing director EMEA of the Motion Picture Association

21st Jul 2014 2:04pm Cammell Lairds 1960's by mandi83

I'm hoping someone can help... My dad started working for Cammell Lairds as an apprentice (welder) around 1961; he's retiring this year, and I thought it would be nice to find some photos of the ships, he was likely to have worked on at the time.

I've contacted Wirral Archives Services and they're going to do some digging around for me, but if anyone has ship names from the time - that an apprentice welder would have worked on - or even photos of the time, that you would allow me to copy for him. I would really appreciate it!!

Hi all,
I have just bought a replacement motor. I need to establish the radio code. The previous owner doesn't know it and there is nothing in any of the documents I have received with it.

19th Jul 2014 10:08pm Dog Attack. Birkenhead Park by RUDEBOX

http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/dad-speaks-devastation-after-dog-7460310

*LINK CONTAINS A DISTRESSING IMAGE

A dad has spoken of his devastation after his dog was attacked in a park.

Leslie Whitaker, from Birkenhead, says pet Jack Russell, Stitch was left with serious injuries after being savaged by a lurcher.

Claughton councillor George Davies says it is the latest in a series of vicious dog attacks in Birkenhead Park and he is now calling for a new law to ban dogs from being let off the lead there.

19th Jul 2014 10:43am Are we running out of time? by granny

Discussion:

As time moves on, there seems to be a constant influx of worries about climate change, nuclear warfare, nuclear weapons getting into terrorists hands, environmental disaster, planetary pollution, overpopulation, killer diseases and collision with a comet or asteroid.

There are also our own issues, that concern our everyday living.

Are we running out of time, and which do you consider to be the most worrying possibilities, and not only the ones mentioned above, for maintaining our living as we recognise it, on this planet ?

.....and if anyone wants to be light hearted about it, then that is their input, and we have to respect their point of view.

18th Jul 2014 2:22pm Which printer then? by venice

Would love some advice if poss please . Need to replace my old Epsom C64 stylus which was beautifully simple.

I just print off the odd sheet/ticket occasionally ,and maybe once a month need a couple of dozen at a time . Dont need high quality or photographs . More interested in simplicity of use and changing of cartridges. Mostly only need black but I believe most now require all cartridges full whether you do only black or not. Would like inexpensive cartridges or ability to use Cartridge World ones, and reliability of the machine. Would rather pay a little more for more reliability if its recognized , than go for a cheapy . If its just luck however, Id stick to cheapest simplest.
Any ideas please peeps?

18th Jul 2014 11:00am laptop bios password help by derekdwc

trying to help another wikiwirral member sort their laptop out
The laptop had no working dvd but I've put another in I was given by another wiki member
I've backed up the hard drive to another usb hard drive via another pc.(approx. 56 gigabytes)
The laptop hd has now been formatted and when I try to install xp it reads the xp cd so far then says there is no hd.
I thought - get into the bios to recognize it, but it wants a password first which we don't know.
Have heard about taking the watch type battery out to reset the bios but laptop knowledge only goes as far as unscrewing a few screws on the back and looking.
I think this battery may be under the keyboard where I don't want to try.
Is there a bootable cd software option?

This a favour for them and no money will be paid
