4.0 out of 5 stars Cute little drive, 4 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cute little drive. Good looking too. Everyone needs a spare optical drive. And this one doesn't take any more real estate in/on/under your desk than it absolutely has to. As a result, the drawer you put the optical disc into is stripped back to the barest minimum. Nice that they've bundled the software you need - and built in a firmware update routine.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool!, 4 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To be honest,it doesn't look exactly like the picture. But who cares. It does what it says in the waffle -= and if you spend too long looking at this ioniser once it's in the fridge, the food you're keeping there will probably rot because you're not letting the fridge get on with what it's meant to.

Sadly, I'm a bit of a fan of fridge ionisers, they stop smells from stuff like Stilton contaminate other foods in the fridge. They also slow the rate at which things like fruit and veg go off, I reckon - and they cost more or less nothing to run. That's why high end fridges come with ionisation as standard. With a gizmo like this, those of us who don't have high end fridges can have the advantages the high end appliances offer for just over 20 quid.

This ioniser features two programmes - one for fridges under 250 litres capacity and the other for bigger fridges. The ioniser then works for a preset amount of time and then nods for a while before automatically repeating the cycle.

This one's going to police the 'salad crisper' to keep the fruit and veg there from going off before I have a chance to scoff it.


The Newsroom - Season 1 [DVD] [2013]
The Newsroom - Season 1 [DVD] [2013]
Dvd ~ Jeff Daniels
Price: £13.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Wordy, funny, oddly accurate, 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Aaron Sorkin's masterpiece - so far anyway. Great script, great cast, including Emily Mortimer,Sam Waterston and John Gallagher Jr. Very, very talky. Very funny and, although many journalists will deny it, unnervingly accurate on the adrenalin rush in a newsroom when a huge story breaks.

Amazing storyline: Fictional US cable news channel fumbles, among other things, the chance to expose eavesdropping by the country's National Security Agency written and made a good two years before Ed Snowden (and The Guardian) blew the whistle on the NSA's (and GCHQ's) monitoring of our phone, email and web traffic. Good line: News anchor played by Jeff Daniels calls the Tea Party 'the American Taliban.

Rightly, vicious about right-wing media, without mentioning the F** word

Quite handy for converting a USB plug thing from a mouse/keyboard to fit in the PS/2 hole you still find on many new computers, freeing up a USB hole for something that really needs one.

4.0 out of 5 stars An unrecognised genius and words, 18 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Aaron Sorkin - of Aaron Sorkin fame - wrote his series for NBC, which showed it in 2006-2007 and promptly killed it off because it never pulled big enough audiences. Stars Matthew Perry, previously of F*****s, and Bradley Whitford, previously of the West Wing.

Too talky for Americans, probably. But that's what you expect of Aaron Sorkin. I'f have though NBC would have realised - he'd written almost every episode of the first four seasons of the West Wing for the network.

Sorkin, in case you wondered, went on to write The Newsroom for HBO, as well as the movies Charlie Wilson's War, Moneyball and The Social Network. For some reason he'd never in the bundle of names at the top of an Amazon page on something's he'd written. Only the people delivering his script get a look in there.

He'd good with words. Not so good with woman characters but newsrooms, politics and backstage at TV shows aren't places I've ever found feminist discourse flourishing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tape, 16 April 2015

Synthetic dressing tape. It's 25 mm, it's synthetic and it's tape that holds dressings in place.

Oh, yes, and it's waterproof.

Hibiscrub pump dispenser fits 500ml hibiscrub bottle 5ml
Offered by Walton Pharmacy
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars In like with plastic, 16 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can I say? It's a plastic dispenser pump for Hibiscrub. Seems quite substantially made. It fits the Hibiscrub bottle's oddly wide neck. And it will save money by limiting the amount in one's hand - or that's how the theory goes

Love? Don't be silly - not yet, anyway. Mildly fond of, I suppose, and I am rather surprised to get the pump - my pharmacist swore blind it had been "discontinued".

3.0 out of 5 stars Pricey felt snowflakes, 1 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: JML Pan Protectors (Black)
Pan protectors at 1.99 each. There are others cheaper listed here and, frankly, an outsize felt snowflake shouldn't cost the best part of two quid.

Still they do their job.
