5.0 out of 5 stars Essential companion to my Baring Gould, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A well written book (in two volumes) taking a different (but equally valid) approach to the classic Baring-Gould volumes.

These (together with volume 3) sit on a very strong shelf next to the two volumes by Baring-Gould

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic view of past times, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A excellent selection of well reproduced photographs of various aspects of motoring related sites over the years.

In particular the photographs provided a good feel of what has survived (e.g. the Fort Dunlop building) and what is now gone (like the Vauxhall complex in Luton).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting and Well Written, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting, well written and "different" take on the Sherlock Holmes stories.

The comparisons between Holmes activities and the state of the science at the time are well done and gave interesting insights into the stories.

One of those (unfortunately) rare books that leave you wanting more when you turn the last page.

The authors enthusiasm is obvious (just read the Preface) and infectious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Perfectly (Lexar products always do), 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased for use with a Raspberry Pi.

Works perfectly as I would expect from Lexar whose CF and SD products I have always used in my digital cameras.

1.0 out of 5 stars Never works for more than 10 minutes, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The mouse paired with my system correctly and appears in the Bluetooth device list. It is the only Bluetooth device in use with the system.

In use it will never function for more that 10 minutes after it is turned on before freezing and the recommended double click then fails to bring it back to life. If left for some hours it will sometimes come back to life and work for a few minutes then freeze again. Just tested it again and it worked for under a minute then froze - double click (as usual) fails to wake it up.

If I delete the mouse from Bluetooth and pair it again it will start working for a few minutes then freeze.

Basically junk but so cheap it's not worth the hastle of returning for a refund.
