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.
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...
As per a suggestion on another thread. What Facebook behaviour gets on your nerves?
'What's up hun?'
'It's private, I'll message you bbz'
People commenting on spoof news stories as though they are real, that's more amusing than annoying though. I read one last week from the...
Has anyone seen it yet? I watched it on Friday and really enjoyed it. It was just like top gear on tour.
I'm all booked up to spend a month over in Oz and New Zealand from mid January on a delayed honeymoon (apart from a 4 day jaunt to Iceland straight afterwards we've not really done anything just the 2 of us to celebrate, so this is it)
After a few days in Brisbane we've got a few days in...
I know we've had this thread before but technology moves so fast that the old thread is likely already out of date.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?
Has anyone watched this docu series on Netflix? I've recently finished binging on it, not the most festive viewing but I couldn't stop watching its incredible on many different levels! now it's done I can't stop thinking about it was looking for other people's opinions on it
Was having a conversation about how much money I used to go out with for a good night in my twenties, this would include bevvy all night, chippy and maybe a taxi home. I recall it was about £20-£30. Fast forward to now, nearly 50 years of age and I hate going out even just for a decent session...
There's a few I'm sure.
Donald (ma maw's fi' Lewis ye ken) Trump is the obvious current one.
Sheena Easton? :dunno:
(Note: Nae Chic Youngs. We're talking exiles)
I'm no techy but would it be feasible technically and inkeeping with the tone of our messageboards here on Hibs.net to incorporate a 'like' button/function for posts?
Would make it easier to show appreciation without having to quote and comment and use up space/bandwidth. Or has it been discussed...
As it says on the tin!
Looking for a new car, best places to go?
Ideally less than 10,000 miles on the clock and just a few years old.
Heard bad things about nearly all dealers in edinburgh?!
Anybody know what the view is like from the back?
Happy : What kept you Hibs?
Sad : The world tends towards chaos
(Apologies admins, i know this is the wrong forum but as the deal expires at midnight i thought id post here so more people see it.)
Just a heads up that Ryanair are doing £2 flights to 170 European destinations in November on a Tue/Wed .. but be quick as you have to book by Midnight Tonight!
Passed away yesterday
For no apparent reason I've suddenly had the feeling that I want one. The extra thick heel toasted and smeared thickly in lurpack butter. There can be no doubt that this will be my breakfast tomorrow morning,
I thought I'd start a thread about the greatest song of all time. Obviously I think that Creep is the best song ever and anyone who disagrees is wrong, but if you must, I'd like to hear your second best :greengrin:greengrin
Following on from the 'unacceptable' thread and reading the various valid opinions, I wondered, given that so much on FB is so vapid and, well, crap, just what is acceptable on the platform?
I'm guessing this won't generate the same amount of responses as the other thread...
Only an hour to go. Very excited!
Anyone have a recommendation for a decent hotel. I get decent rates through Hilton but not really wanting to stay at Villamoura.
Some fellow Hibees and I are off to Poznan a week on Friday for lad in a bath of beans (Gramo's) stag.
We are going to a shooting range on the Saturday, I was wondering if anyone had been and had any recommendations on bars/clubs etc or any general advice, taxis/public transport...
Been watching quite a lot of these recently and had my eyes opened re what is actually going on in the world. Here's a few that I've watched and consider to have done what I mention above.... Blackfish- about The capture of Orca's, sold onto Seaworld and the dramatic consequences thereafter....
Anyone got any good suggestions for a hotel to go to in Christmas Day for dinner? Edinburgh, east or Midlothian?

My turn ☺

Following on from the pet peeves thread, let's hear about the times when you get that feeling of getting one up on someone or something.
My other half constantly moans about not putting the toilet seat down, I went into the bathroom this morning and the seat was up. I took great pleasure in...
I recently took my Sky and Bt sports out. I was fed up shelling out money because I didn't feel that paying for the basic stuff just to have the right to get sports was fair or fairly priced.
However my situation is that I have saved cash but its catch 22 because i only ever got sky for the...
Some advice please. I'm planning on taking my other half to London in a few weeks around mid october. I've actually never been apart from flying through the airports in the past.
Can people recommend decent places to stay that make it easy to get around, places to see, eat etc? Also is it...
Looking to get advice from any mechanic. I have a Chevy Lacetti Estate originally an motability car that is for my son. Recently, it broke down with no warning. Towed to my garage, who found the timing belt was slack and therefore no compression to the engine. They were going to charge me for a...

Is any one on here a tiler (or know one) who could give me a rough estimate?
I'm in the process of buying a newbuild house and need to choose tiling options. My current thought is to take the basic package offered by the builder and then pay my own tiler separately to add additional tiling when...
Just as ***** as the first one. I've just returned home from the cinema and I can't believe I wasted my time again. The first film was crap, but I thought it had the potential to be a good film if done properly , it has failed again.
I work here and I am in serious danger of losing my job of 14 years, so help a fellow Hibby please guys, and help save the music business in the UK
After the Associates, obviously
A short time ago in the beautiful morning sun in Rio, Maria Lyle from Dunbar won bronze medal in the womens 200m. Maria is 16 years old.
She came 3rd behind Isis Holt of Australia and the Chinese winner whose name I lost in the excitement.
Maria did a lap of honour, alone, round the...
Anybody on here in to the matched betting? Been doing it myself for a couple of months now and making some good cash from it, it's an improvement on getting rammed from the bookies every weekend anyway.
I only got in to it because of a guy I speak to at the games told me about a hibby he knows...
I see there's a new British whisky out called 'The One'.
Should I ask for a double Britch if I want to order one at the bar?
Hi All,......who is entitled to free university education in Scotland?.........what is the criteria? TIA.

I think that is fantastic value even...
