    2016 Version Of Swallows And Amazons

    Slip of the fingers I guess Grendel Evgemia Ransome was Trotskys Secretary. Tolstoy was the guy who wrote War and Peace. Anyway I agree with you the 1974 version of the film was far better. Why do they need to mess about adding things that are not in the books.

    Nbn Quiz Night

    Will try and make it Bern. As for the topics I may have a chance with "Wales" but as for "Eurovision", not a hope!

    Countryfile Sunday 22nd April

    Unfortunately the BBC's obsession with so called celebrities has resulted in many once good series becoming unwatchable. I did have a look although I gave up on Countryfile a long time ago. Last night as has already been said was a waste of time. A once good programme about country matters has now turned in to what can only be described as, "Blue Peter" with fields and cowpats.

    Nbn Quiz Night

    I've been looking at the login settings in the Chat Software. I cannot see anything in the code that would cause this but I have made a couple of changes to see if it has any effect. Another thing to check though. Do you have 'Accept Cookies' enabled in the 'Privacy and Security' settings of the browser on your android tablet.

    Nbn Quiz Night

    Thanks for that info. So it should be OK on a tablet. Possibly a log in issue then. Will wait to hear back from Delilah.

    Nbn Quiz Night

    The android tablet may be the issue. I know the software can be accessed from an iphone and presumably an ipad, but i do not have an android device to test, As a matter of interest. What happens when you try to log in. Is there an error message displayed or does the thing just do nothing? Do you get the log in page OK? If you do then try this. Do not enter any thing at all and just click the login button. If this gets you into the chat then we know it is something to do with the login. If it still does not work then this would indicate an incompatibility with android. The Chatroom software and the server it is hosted on are not connected with the forum software so I can assure you it is not connected with the recent forum update. In the meantime I am looking at ways to get the chat to work with android. Are there any other members with android tablets? If there are could someone try logging into the chatroom we use for the quiz and see if it works for them. http://www.nbnquiz.co.uk/chat

    The Best And The Worst

    On Carols Broadland Memories Site There are one or two tales from my my boat hires back in the 1970's one of which was my only bad experience with a hire boat. I wrote those down back in 2009 but it is amusing to read them again. http://www.broadlandmemories.co.uk/arthur1970s.html

    Hope sincerely you have not got this same bug that I have Polly. Been somewhat knocked for six for a couple of weeks now.

    The Reed And Rhond Anchor

    Did log in but not a soul in sight. Maybe the pub has run out of drinks. Normally I would stay logged in for a while to see if anyone turns up but I still don't feel that fit so will have an early night and hopefully might make it on Friday.

    Single Parent Hiring Boats

    I would not exactly call the discussion boring. On the other hand I would agree that all we are doing now is going round in circles basically expressing our disagreement with the recent decision made by Richardsons. They have made their decision and are not going to change it, so there is little more to say. I have my own theory but I do not wish to add any more fuel to the situation. Like others I feel aggrieved as a single hirer that I am no longer welcome to holiday with a company I have used for a good while. However. as has already been said there are still other yards willing to hire and when and if i am able to get to the Broads again then I am happy that I will still be able to hire a boat.
