2.0 out of 5 stars A rather tedious formulatic affair, 11 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book does not grab you, rather you drift into it and have to keep prodding yourself to pick it back up.
I'm afraid to say that in the end its not worth the trouble, a very formulatic, tedious affair.
You can tell the author is an English major or some such like, its bits of ideas drawn from other novels juxtoposed with fluff to form a 'new' book.
steer well clear, instead go for 'The Time Travellers Wife' which is excellent, or indeed 'The Help' is another good read

Good for daylight when you want to get the attention of idiot car drivers..
but I tried it in the dark and could not see hardly anything of the road, not bright enough for cycling in the dark

4.0 out of 5 stars Great little tool set, 10 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great little tool set bought to enable those stupid security screws to be removed so I could replace the motor belt in my Miele washing m/c [a little too much info ?]
anyway, great product, except!.. I would expect Draper to at least state on the sale that you need some sort of handle to enable you to use the bits. luckily I figured it would fit into an existing tool handle I owned, and it did, but if it hadnt I would not have been best pleased. A link to a suitable handle or at least telling you that a handle is required should be included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money, would buy again, 20 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ok, so I bought this pack of 10 bulbs back in November, installed 1 and it just blew the beginning of this month, so thats 9-10 weeks, in my book thats a winner for a 60pence halogen bulb. I've bought plenty of the £4.99 or thereabouts branded bulbs in the past, they have all blown at some time or other. There is no difference in light from the branded, so its these cheap ones for me from now.

**update
well its over a year now and ive only had 2 blow,... speaks for itself

3.0 out of 5 stars "you are running the wrong version of the sims 2 please run t instead", 20 Feb. 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sims 2 (PC DVD) (Video Game)
I bought this game for my daughters birthday and it took ages to install [days!!], I kept getting the message that I was running the wrong version.
"you are running the wrong version of the sims 2 please run t instead"

Figured it was because previously we have had a look at Sims but either it didnt work or we uninstalled it.
.. I recently upgraded my sons pc to windows 7 and tried to install on there, no problem...

Anyway, uninstalling wouldn't work, the uninstall wouldnt run, it kept telling me to uninstall add ons which i didnt have installed..

Deleting all folders, and running a registry cleaner and reinstalling didnt work, after much cussin and such I was ready to give up..

It would seem that because of all the Sims 2 piracy protection its a real b***ch to uninstall completely. I eventually found this site, followed the instructions and bingo, all installed fine [on daughters laptop running xp].

Here's the link to the instructions, follow them and all will be well.

(....)

I will include the text here also, but dont know if Amazon will leave it in..

Enjoy, my daughter loves Sims 2..., just a shame its so flakey to install & uninstall.

ps.. for the record, I also ran a search in regedit for 'sims' and anything found I right clicked/ deleted.

1.0 out of 5 stars A tedious waste of time and space, 20 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well i'm blowed, I bought this on the normally very reliable Amazon reviews... but in this instance I was unpleasantly let down.
I have been learning about Forex from a friend at work for only the past couple of weeks so thought I would purchase a good book to read and reference.
NO such luck, I already knew more relevant stuff from my mate than this book was ever going to tell me, it diverges a lot, giving information on irrelevant other options, instead of just stating what they are.

It is simply a bit of info padded out with lots and lots of fluff.

Believe me, dont waste your time on this, a simple google search will tell you more relevant and concise info.

The only thing it left me [apart from a bad taste at the wasted money], was a thought.. "just how bad are the other Forex books out there which havent got good reviews".

At the end of the day its only my opinion, so take it for what its worth.
;-)
