1.0 out of 5 stars It is absolutely tiny., 23 Feb. 2016

4.0 out of 5 stars It's good, but a slightly fatter angle (fatter bottom, 11 Feb. 2016

It's good, but a slightly fatter angle (fatter bottom!) would have been more comfortable, I think – it's a bit upright.

LEGO 40120: Seasonal Valentine's Day Dinner
Offered by Head Of The Rugged River
Price: £29.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Only if you are married or engaged! (Or want to be!), 11 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is billed as a Valentine product, but unfortunately (as the packaging makes all too clear) it is equally about the man offering the woman a ring. If that is explicitly not part of your current (or past) Valentine message, then I am afraid this is not for you.


Bourbon for Breakfast: Living Outside the Statist Quo
Bourbon for Breakfast: Living Outside the Statist Quo

Edition: Paperback

1.0 out of 5 stars The Devil Take The Hindmost, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The state is always bad, it should be a free-for-all with no laws to define society, deregulating and leaving everything in human existence to a free market is the best thing, von Mises and the Austrian Economists were right, everyone else and everything else is wrong.

There, a little summary to save you the bother of buying this book.

If you'd like the full experience of *reading* this book, however, then read my first paragraph oh, say, 250 times.

I'm not normally in favour of burning books, but I could make an exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars Endlessly entertaining and informative, 2 July 2013
You can just dip in any time for another 2/3-page item on some remarkable insight into how the world works.

Just finished it, feel smarter already, and am now going to read it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome - except for occasional double-clicks, 13 Feb. 2012
Super-light touch (bought it owing to RSI legacy), the chiclet keys go down almost perfectly flat - flatter than my Apple keyboard, even.

It's magic to type on - except every now and then I get a double-press (an extra letter). The keyboard is soooo good I'm thinking of living with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars NB, on all 3 of our Chronos radios the DAB crashed and a reset was needed, 31 Mar. 2010
Great DAB radio as per other reviewers, but after a year or two all three of our Pure Chronos radios stopped receiving DAB - they'd just say "Now tuning..." and sit there in silence.

At the back of the manual it tells you how to reset: turn it on, hold 'Menu' for 3 seconds, then it asks you to press 'Select' to confirm you want to reset. And DAB returns.

Hope that's some use. Took us a while to work that out...

4.0 out of 5 stars Be careful - shiny side is way too grippy, 9 Mar. 2010
The shiny side, which for all the world looks like the side you're supposed to use, is way too grippy. It needs to be a bit less, so that while it does stop cards as they're dealt from sliding off the table, you can still slide cards together by hand without them sticking to the cloth and rucking it up.
However, the matt side (which sure looks like the "back") works a lot better.
