Today at 03:09 PM The gritters are out... by Greenwood

It seems even the gritters are getting into the Christmas spirit a bit early - I've just been spattered on the Meols stretch by a very smart new gritter with snow-clearing attachment. Quite unnerving when the thermometer in the car reads 9C. Am I missing something? Weather forecast looks relatively mild for the next few days. Perhaps it was just a trial run for some new kit; very strange.

Today at 09:46 AM Football parasites. by ludwigvan

Today, George Osborne is expected to announce cuts of £12bn to the welfare budget, this is on top of slashing the amount of money given to councils from central government thereby drastically reducing their ability to provide essential services to the old, sick and vulnerable. Also today, Everton FC ( home to multi millionaire footballers) have announced that they need council financial backing to help them bulld a new football stadium. If this wasn't so appalling it would be amusing.

18th Nov 2015 3:31am Welcome To Becoming Part of Liverpool by diggingdeeper

Liverpool City Region has been approved to get an elected Mayor and devolved powers. I can't see how this can possibly work without Wirral completely losing its political identity.

Interesting that the BBC has called this "Merseyside" and not Liverpool City Region, I would feel a bit more comfortable with the Merseyside title. We are not part of Liverpool and even less so part of Liverpool City.

The final say is by all the councils voting on Thursday this week, I pray at least one council will realise what will become of this.

I think it appalling that there is no referendum on this occurring, we the people should have a say. We already have the ability to share services, what more can this amalgamation bring apart from more jobs for politicians and council officials?

Has anybody used anyone before? Can you recommend trusted shops or suggest who to avoid?

15th Nov 2015 5:29pm Coin-in-the slot leccy and gas meters by yoller

Apologies if weíve covered this subject before, but Iíve been trying to recall how the coin-in-the-slot meters worked in our houses in the old days - in my case, the mid-1950s.

I well remember that you had to put a shilling in the electricity meter to get a set amount of time. Once the money ran out, your lights went off, along with your radio (no telly in those days).

But I canít remember how it worked for gas. Was there a similar coin-in-the-slot system?

Also, when the leccy man came periodically to empty the meter, piling up the shillings on the table and counting them, there was more often than not a bonanza for the family in the form of a 'rebate' - he gave you so many shillings back. But how come you got money back if it was a pay-as-you-go system?

15th Nov 2015 11:30am Baby gates by Elyth

Hi I have 2 baby gates one is a babystart extendable one and the other is a single panel babydan gate. The only thing is I don't have the wall locking catch fixtures for both of them. I have the fixtures to attach the gates to the wall but new wall locking catches would need to be bought. When I moved house I left the locking fixtures on the wall by mistake. Anyway they are free if anyone wants them. If not they will be off to the tip.

14th Nov 2015 7:25pm some local maps by derekdwc

When in the Conway building(housing?) I saw a notice
'Designated Selective Licensing Areas' ask at reception for maps,
Thinking they were something to do with pub licenses I asked for them and got four A3 photocopies for free.
Since then found them online as pdfs

12th Nov 2015 11:49pm Product Key Nightmare - Any Ideas? by diggingdeeper

After a power outage, Windows 10 got corrupted (it lost microsoft edge, windows menu button functionality and windows settings functionality) - one error was along lines of "no association for ms-settings). Tried powershell route of refreshing ms-edge but it didn't work

Tried windows repair that found nothing wrong, tried a windows refresh that said it couldn't, tried a windows reset that said it couldn't so thought I might as well do a windows 10 clean install.

Unfortunately the product key (refurb Windows 7 home premium) will not work with Windows 10. Tried reinstalling windows 7 and that won't recognise the product key either.

It looks like the product key has been de-registered from Windows 7 but not registered with Windows 10 update.

I think I have got ways to get round this but I'm wary of losing more product keys.

Any suggestions?


The computer was upgraded to Windows 10 from a 64 bit system.

After hard drive failure I realised that the installed system hadn't been using the product key on the case.

Windows 7 32-bit was installed with the case's product key, then the computer was re-upgraded to Windows 10.

Computer worked fine.

Same product key, same windows 7 disk, same hard drive - everything exactly the same apart from the video card and monitor.
