5.0 out of 5 stars Hose tool adapter, 2 April 2013

This has got to be the simplest item I have ever bought. I even considered using the cardboard middle out of a kitchen towel roll. But I'm glad that I've got it. It has made use of redundant tool heads from previously owned vacuum cleaners that have long since gone to the council tip. A simple but good idea from Henry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flexi Crevice Tool, 2 April 2013

The idea is good but the execution is a little flawed. The tool is well manufactured and should prove durable but it is designed to go under low sitting appliances like a washing machine. Well, the main flexi part would fit but the leading head is slightly bigger so the appliance has to be jacked up a little to accomplish access fully. Works well once under, and, I surmise that the large hole at the end that other reviews have taped over, is there to pick up dirt from the floor when used face down. Turn it up the other way and it probably snags cobwebs on the bottom of the machine. Just a thought....


Rolling Through The Isles: A Journey Back Down the Roads that led to Jupiter
Rolling Through The Isles: A Journey Back Down the Roads that led to Jupiter
by Ted Simon
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £20.00

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Ted's Finest Work, 2 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had read other readers' reviews, some of which were not that impressed with this latest offering from Ted Simon. Having read and thoroughly enjoyed all his previous chronicles, this tale was a bit of a letdown. For a start previous books had twice the number of pages and single line spacing print. This is double spacing, so we are only looking at a quarter of the content of previous offerings.

There was too much reminiscing over his youth and not enough detail about the journey. He jumped from place to place with little content about how he got there, apart from frequent mention of his Tom Tom. It was too autobiographical which may have been forgiven if more information about the journey had been forthcoming. Unlike Ted's previous Jupiter Travels and Return of Jupiter, there was very little humour this time; the sign of an older gentleman writer maybe? The best bit was the information gleaned from the taxi driver on his tour of Belfast. I agree with previous reviews, that Ted was not up to his usual standard but I wish him well in his retirement in Northern California for the pleasure he has given countless readers/bikers over the decades.

Have been using Simple products for a long time now and find they are effective without the overbearing scents that other heavily advertised "manly" toiletries inevitably seems to be obligatory. (Warning - may not attract beautiful girls to you)

Bought as a replacement for similar metal lanterns that were unsightly due to weathering. These polycarbonate constructs are indistinguishable from the metal and are very unlikely to deteriorate or need repainting. Well pleased with looks and prompt delivery.

Exercise while having fun. Plenty of games to amuse all the family. Enjoyment of some is enhanced by using accessories that clip onto the control, to give it a bit more of a realistic feel. Bought as a replacement for original disc lost, but at a much lower price. Bargain from this merchant. Thanks.


Belkin N1 Wireless Modem Router

4.0 out of 5 stars Belkin N1 Wireless Modem/Router, 2 Aug. 2012
This was ordered as a gift and transpired to be out of stock after order placed so I never actually received the item.

However, my own router is this model (not bought at Amazon) which I have had for about 3 - 4 years or so. I have nothing but praise for its performance; it copes with everything so well I don't notice it is there. I have a pc wired, a Wii, two laptops by wireless (one N1 and one 802.11g) plus a Devolo dLAN home plug system with a TV and an internet streamer radio all connected and working flawlessly with the occasional visitor's laptop plugged in too.

The Belkin is easy to set up and for the more technically adept there is access to 23 pages of settings in the Setup Menu to suit individual requirements. It has a built in quality firewall that ensures that the PC's are not visible to the net.

The wireless range is good but not exceptional; it works well in the house with seriously thick 1920's brick walls but a few feet into the garden it disappears. A repeater would probably overcome this if outside use is required. There are icon lights on the unit which indicate different modes of operation. My only gripe is that two of mine have never worked, but this has not affected the operation of the unit in anyway. This plus apparent limited wireless range limits my star rating to 4.

This unit has been on the market for 5 years or so now and has been superseded by later models, but it still cuts the mustard for performance and security in the fast moving world of IT. Well recommended for a relatively inexpensive (it was double current price when I bought mine) quality item for a new user.
