    Not in London any more. #sob

  • Any suggestions on the best place to get MS Office (2010 or 2013, 64 bit)? The full program, not a year's subscription, only need Excel and Word. Googling it seems to bring up a whole variety of possibly dodgy vendors (Vegascart for instance appears cheap but has a name that doesn't inspire me with confidence).

    Ask any IT people you might have at work if they know where to 'get', ahem, Excel and Word.

  • best place to bulk buy 700c innertubes from? i cleared my garage to realise i have three bikes with 5 p*nctured wheels.

  • Bikewhsiperer has moved

    THE BIKE WHISPERER
    Unit 40
    Greenham Business Park
    Newbury
    Berks RG19 6HP
    Plenty of free parking, lovely riding & great coffee (alas no dogs in the new place though)
    Email: enquiries@thebikewhisperer.co.uk
    Telephone: 0118 971 2860

    I used to work a few miles away from here, might swing by the next time I'm visiting my parents.

  • Cheers all. Openoffice is out as I use VBA a lot and, for a variety of reasons, I'd prefer legal copies rather than "acquiring" them. Looks like it may have to be full price which is a bit painful.

  • Anyone know if there is much bike parking around parliament square?

    Any of the online retailers but surely cheaper to repair? One puncture kit for £1 will do 'em all.

    I'll give you a hint..

  • Or OpenOffice

  • Ok, I have a tune I need to identify. I think it is from a film score or title. It puts me in mind of Indiana jones or a John Williams score can you identify it from this:

    Dum dum de dum, dum dum dum dum, de diddle de de de, dum dum de dum.

  • Thru axle adaptors, yay or nay?

  • I am considering one very seriously (Whisky products road disc fork with maxle).

  • POLICE ACADEMY!

    Thank goodness for that, it was torturing me, and the two other people who have been exposed to me humming it for the last half hour.

    At ease everyone.

  • Also for those concerned forumengers out there, the disappointment of it not being Star Trek Voyager when I cued up the titles on youtube nearly broke me.

  • If it is this one, or if it is not, I now have it stuck in my head for at least a week. Thanks!

    Police Academy Soundtrack - Police Academy March - YouTube

  • That's the one.

    Dum dum de dum de dum dum dum....

  • Listening Star Trek Voyager theme to override the Police Academy one

    There are some sheffield stands on Tothill Street if I remember correctly. http://goo.gl/maps/ZOfvT

  • I'm not sure you have any legal rights once the provisions of DSRs are out ie after 7 days, if the goods are fit for purpose.
    The situation will be governed by the contract you made w the seller which will essentially equate to the t&cs of their website at the time, assuming they had one of the tick boxes where you agree you've read them.

    if <7d return postage is the sellers responsibility regardless of the reason for return but this is often flouted

    TL;DR:

    Restock fee not allowed
    Period for cancelling the contract is 7 working days from delivery, not including weekends or bank holidays.
    Notice by email allowed.
    Seller is responsible for organisation and cost of retrieval. Cannot insist on undamaged original packaging.
    Refund should total 100% of sale price and delivery/packaging fees except giftwrapping, express delivery

    From the website: http://dshub.tradingstandards.gov.uk/exp­lained

    Refunding the costs of return depend on what a customer has been told and agreed to at the time of sale. The customer can be made to bear these costs if this is included in your contract terms and forms part of the information required to be given to customers

    I'm intrigued as to what you're both saying. The bold bits in your posts don't match my interpretation of the text I've included above.

  • Dum dum de dum, dum dum dum dum, de diddle de de de, dum dum de dum.

    It only fucking well is Police Academy an all.

  • I didn't pay to fit them as i'd just bought their pedals new, and it's an 'inclusive service' apparently. When I went in to question their installation, they offered to fit a new crank for £5.99, which suggests to me a guilty conscience. Having looked at that CAB link HatBeard, I think i'll go in and try and get some replacement cranks (the one they were offering was a generic one, but i'm a bit fussy and would quite like matching cranks), as it does appear to be their mistake.

    Cheers for the responses as well all.

    Apologies for being a day late.

    A couple of years ago, a family we know, with a son doing his GCSEs,
    proudly told us he was doing work experience with ......... Halfords.

    (The kid has no mechanical aptitude,
    and
    had never ridden a bike).

    When I was chatting to him ,
    after he had finished his assignment,
    he cheerfully told me on Day 2 of his first week,
    he was the sole, unsupervised, assembler of new bikes at this particular Halfords.

    Oaf + spanner means the wrong pedal 'easily' crossthreads in the wrong crank.
    Do the suspect pedals have the identifying 'L' & 'R'?

  • Thru axle adaptors, yay or nay?

    On a suspension fork, particularly a long travel one, yay. On a rigid fork, particularly one used on the road, nay.
