Cullmann CX470 Quick Release Plate
Cullmann CX470 Quick Release Plate
Price: £10.63

5.0 out of 5 stars like the original QR platform on a Cullmann tripod bought ..., 28 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was somewhat resentful of the price, as I expected this to be made of plastic, like the original QR platform on a Cullmann tripod bought over 20 years ago. It turned out the be a high quality item constructed of aluminium, so the price now seems more reasonable!

Fits the old Cullmann tripod QR head perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile replacement for original battery pack, 28 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Held back on a review for a few months - no point in doing a review of something like this "out of the packet".

Original Toshiba battery gave 1.5 hours maximum use when new, which fell to an hour over a couple of years before final, sudden failure. This battery is almost double the capacity, and gives up to three hours Internet browsing / working with Office. When using the DVD / CD drive this can drop to under two hours. It has been heavily used, and is still retaining its capacity and charge well. Full charge in 2 hours or so.

Unlike the original, it does not fit flush with the laptop casing (larger capacity - so larger cell sizes, I assume) and adds a large "ridge" to the underside of the laptop, which may be a problem if your laptop bag is already a close fit. It also adds appreciably to its weight.

I have found that the laptop is better cooled and there is less heat build-up underneath. The new battery raises the base up from a flat surface and presumably allows a better air flow through the fan mounted on the underside - this runs less frequently than it used to with the old, flush mounting battery pack. The tilt given to the laptop also makes the keyboard a little more comfortable to use for me.


The Gentle Answer to the Muslim Accusation of Biblical Falsification
The Gentle Answer to the Muslim Accusation of Biblical Falsification
by Gordon D Nickel
Edition: Paperback
Price: £18.95

5.0 out of 5 stars A real aid to understanding, 28 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This has been a very interesting read. It is well and clearly written. Gordon Nickel has done Christians and Muslims a great service in writing this book. For Muslims, it clearly corrects common Islamic misunderstandings of the nature, history and purpose of the Old and New testament writings. For Christians, it helps in understanding the nature Islamic apologetics and polemics.

A very worthwhile book for Christians and Muslims who have an interest in each other's Holy Books.


Waterproof Bible-ESV-Tree Bark
Waterproof Bible-ESV-Tree Bark
by Bardin & Marsee Publishing
Edition: Paperback
Price: £41.74

4.0 out of 5 stars A Bible proof against daily life., 3 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Didn't buy this to read in the bath or out in the woods while it's raining - bought it because I thought it would be more durable than a paper bible for day-to-day use - more resistant to tears and spills. Looks like that will be the case.
Would rather have had a plain cover than the tree bark one, but the price was good - looking for a cover!
Slightly odd feel to the pages, smoother than normal Bible paper.
Text contrast with page very good.
Heavy!

A New Apostolic Reformation?: A Biblical Response to a Worldwide Movement
A New Apostolic Reformation?: A Biblical Response to a Worldwide Movement
Price: £5.27

4.0 out of 5 stars Important reading for Christians in the UK, 3 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In the UK the New Apostolic Reformation movement is little known, but individuals and groups embedded in it and associated with it are much better known as teachers, speakers and authors with books on the shelves of many Christian book shops.
A useful introduction to the New Apostolic Reformation - what it is and what its people are about. Clearly written, free of the bitterness and aggression sometimes seen on the Internet. A well laid out, Biblical case for caution.

If anyone finds this review because of my review of the "Passion Translation" it's well worth reading to understand the odd theology that lies behind it, why it is being promoted in NAR circles and why this worries me.


The Liverworts of Britain and Ireland
The Liverworts of Britain and Ireland
by A. J. E. Smith
Edition: Paperback
Price: £54.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Still a useful reference, 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as comprehensive as Paton's "Liverwort Liverwort Flora of The British Isles, but physically more manageable in the hand and field.

Nomenclature has changed a lot in some areas since this edition was published, but still very useful and useable for the interested amateur (such as me).


Trangia Safety fastening (Replacement) petrol
Trangia Safety fastening (Replacement) petrol
Offered by OutdoorGear Outdoor Experts
Price: £5.41

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful, but is it durable?, 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used the Trangia plastic safety bottle with alcohol fuels. Bought this safety cap as a spare - I'm not as convinced about its durability as I am about its utility.

I'll be trying it with Coleman fuel this season (2015). Potentially far easier to use as I won't have to carry a small funnel to refuel the.

I'm not sure if this will seal properly on a Sigg aluminium bottle; I doubt the two manufacturers will recommend this, but I'm sure I'm not the only one to have wondered about it. The threads seem to mate properly, but the Trangia sealing O-ring is designed to sit within the neck of the Trangia bottle. The Sigg bottle caps have a ring which seals against the machined-flat rim of the bottle, so there might be seepage past the threads.


The Complete NIV Audio Bible: Read by David Suchet (MP3 CD) (New International Version)
The Complete NIV Audio Bible: Read by David Suchet (MP3 CD) (New International Version)
by New International Version
Edition: MP3 CD
Price: £31.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Reverent, Reflective and Relaxing!, 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
David Suchet reads beautifully, with a well measured pace and without the hammed-up pronunciation and style of some offerings.

The MP3 files well organized on the CDs, so it's easy to find what you want. Each track contains a chapter of a book or an individual Psalm.


Modern Fascism: The Threat to the Judeo-Christian View (Concordia Scholarship Today)
Modern Fascism: The Threat to the Judeo-Christian View (Concordia Scholarship Today)
by Gene Edward Veith Jr
Edition: Paperback
Price: £13.85

4.0 out of 5 stars Fascism - still with us., 26 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not at all written in an "academic" or "scholarly" style, instead clear and accessible.

A very interesting read. Fascism is regarded too simplistically in our popular media and in secondary education. The author shows the intellectual & philosophical roots of the fascist movements of the early 20th Century, then goes on to demonstrate that those roots are still alive and growing in postmodern society.
