1.0 out of 5 stars Did not work wirelessly., 17 July 2015
Setting up the printer on my Mac was very straightforward. However, after printing a couple of jobs, the printer showed as 'offline' even though the machine showed as Ready. Having taken out the extra insurance I rang the helpline. Their solution was to turn off the printer and turn it back on again. This worked - for a couple of jobs! In Sleep mode, sending a job to the printer is supposed to turn the printer online again. It didn't. It was switch off and switch on again. In Deep Sleep mode, pressing the button would put the printer into Sleep mode - and it would instantly go back to Deep Sleep again. Another call to the helpline said the problem would be with my BT Infinity router.
Ringing BT they said as my broadband and phone were working there was no problem with the router. Their technical help line could help butit would cost £30!??! No thanks.
I returned the printer to the shop and got a Samsung instead, which is working very well. (so far, anyway! - Fingers crossed)

Delivered promptly and a very good price. Whether they last as long as manufacturer's cartridges remains to be seen

1.0 out of 5 stars Just does not work, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These look smart and well made. The problem is the tip is quite firm and just does not work, either on my iPhone or iPad. At best it might respond on an odd occasion but you need to press hard to get any response at all. I wish I could remember where I bought my previous stylus pen from. The new ones have gone in the bin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Everything for every Mass but quality and design are questionable., 23 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Missal is superb in that it has the Liturgy of the Word for every Mass in the 3 year Sunday cycle and two year weekday cycle. In between is the text for the Liturgy of The Eucharist. The latter also has the Latin text on the opposite page; this might also prove useful to help explain some of the wording in the new translation of the Missal that some object to. As one example, the translation of 'for many' instead of 'for all' is made clear - it was always 'for many' in the Latin.

My concerns are, first, about the quality of the production. The white lining to the inside front cover is torn and there is a small split at the base of the spine. I suspect the crack will widen with use. Of course I could return it but it would be too much hassle - without any guarantee the replacement wouldn't have other problems.
The book is 3440 pages and has been produced in the same size as the Sunday and Weekday missals. This makes for a very 'fat' book. It might have been better to produce it in a larger size and so have less pages. I guess it might be the size it is so that it can fit on pew shelves (??).
4 days since posting the above I've found that p.2421 had a folded corner which, when unfolded, extends the corner beyond the edges of the other pages. Another annoying bit of poor quality production. I hope it's the last.


Good Goats: Healing Our Image of God
Good Goats: Healing Our Image of God

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Goats Wise Words, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A first class read. Don't be fooled by the cover. This is a very good book tackling complex issues and is aimed at adults, although it could be used for children. The piece on the Prodigal Son is a good example, although I'm not sure I fully agree with their interpretation, it definitely gives anew perspective and a lot of food for thought and reflection

5.0 out of 5 stars Just right for the less computer literate., 1 May 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If, like me, you are familiar with a Mac but are no expert this is the book for you. I've always felt that instruction manuals for beginners (and, to a less extent, 'intermediate' users) should be written alongside people who actually are beginners. That way the expert can be guided as to how beginners think [or don't!]. I've found this book pretty much matches that spec. It's well laid out, easy to read and, most importantly, easy to understand.

The material is well presented, with a touch of humour - which always helps. For Snow Leopard I had the Missing Manual - which is very good but contains far too much technical detail for me. The chapter on UNIX or Hacking Mac OS X I never went near, for example.
To make a direct comparison you could check out the iCal entries. I find the Dummies section on Calendars very easy to grasp and it doesn't contain more advanced information such as publishing Calendars to the Web (why would anyone want to? - OK I know there's an answer but this Dummy doesn't need the info!)

So this book is great for beginners and contains all I need and more. Those with more technical savvy might find it has shortcomings and should go for the Missing Manual

The item arrived earlier than expected and was exactly as ordered. I'll need to wait until its used up to know whether it prints the same amount of pages as a Samsung cartridge.

2.0 out of 5 stars A 2 day diet that includes every day of the week!??, 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The 2-day diet includes a lot of information on what you can and can't eat on your 'unrestricted days'. In other words it's just another 7 day diet. Unless someone's redefined what unrestricted means. Another con to entice women to buy into yet amother a 'scientifically proven' deception.
