  1. Energy Smart Meters

    I'm back with Scottish gas supplying my gas and electricity. They've emailed me with the offer of a 'free' upgrade to a Smart Meter. Anybody got one, is it worth the hassle.

  2. Worst city/town in the UK?

    Have been all over the UK and seen some right ****holes, but over the past few weeks I've been in Doncaster for work and this place is almost inexplicably bad. Never have I seen a place so empty and devoid of any semblance of culture. The place and its people feel hopeless. Not that there's...

  6. Recommend a new phone.

    I know we've had this thread before but technology moves so fast that the old thread is likely already out of date. My Xperia Z3 is on the blink after falling from the bar one time too many, what phones do you recommend and why?
