I feel I should go and mourn. The demise of Woolworths is an end of an era.

Thank you Curry's. You have reminded me why I don't do much of my electronic based shopping in stores any more. It makes me annoyed. You have made what should be a pleasant experience, a plain awful one. You have made me annoyed.
Turns out that in the end, the £8 had never been refunded to the credit card in the first place - they'd refunded it as a gift certificate instead, mainly as the original purchase had been mostly gift certificate based.
I have an internet retailer that wants a fax, and a bank who don't know what paper is.
What is the market like in the UK for bundled packages of TV/phone/broadband? Could I go start bundling my TV, broadband and phone and save some cash?
Whatever your view on chicken welfare, there's obviously something going on in the market place. Demand for free range and organic chicken is clearly up. And demand for cheap chicken is bound to have gone down.

The new TV has arrived which is good - watching episodes on Futurama on your laptop PC just isn't the same if you ask me. It's an IDTV - integrated with digital. I did contemplate going for a cheaper model without the digital element (actually in the clearence range) but due to delivery issues (i.e. they couldn't tell me when it would be delivered), decided to get the digital one. Analogue TVs are getting harder and harder to find now - and it has to be said, rightly so.
What happened to the days when things lasted? I'm sure they existed. I remember owning a TV for about 12 years - and it got transported around the country a few times to boot... Sadly it doesn't seem to happen very often any more. Just two months short of being five years old, and my TV has decided to give up the ghost.
A couple of weeks ago, I invested in a PVR - one of those digital video recorder things. It had been bubbling in my mind for a while, especially as I seemed to have a never ending pile of VHS tapes floating around the room with stuff on them, that had to be watched in strict order lest anything get missed.
