3.0 out of 5 stars Must be installed and cared for properly, 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used several of these now and they are very sensitive. Follow the instructions carefully about what bulbs to use, how many and how to programme the dimmer. This is not like the old dimmers for filament lamps. Out of seven bought, three are now dead, two from misuse, so not returned.

I still buy the Varilight dimmers because they seem to be the only cost effective unit out there (11/11/15).

2.0 out of 5 stars Not suitable as a feed bin, 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read the reviews, so it is my own fault.

This is not airtight, or suitable as a feed bin. The lid does not stay on - the base is just too flimsy, made out of very thin plastic. A kitten could push this over and it would just spill. It is definitely not suitable for outside storage, as the lid would blow off.

It does not quite hold a 12Kg sack of dry dog food kibble. Vitalin Sensitive if you need a reference.

In fact, this product barely matches its description at all. So why give two stars instead of one? Well it is a plastic bin of the correct dimensions and it is cheap. I will be throwing it out as soon as I find a replacement.

5.0 out of 5 stars True HiFi Earphones, 8 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are s bargain at under £40.
Not sure why they are reduced, but the sound quality is outstanding, better than any in-ear headphones I have owned (up to £90 a pari).

The only drawback I have experienced, is that the beads are very heavy and easily tangle with the cable. I have never bothered with cable tidies before, but the one supplied with these is essential even for short periods of pocket storage.

I have just bought a second set from UK Supplies, because they are a total bargain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, with all of my devices, 3 Nov. 2015

works well, but I would have appreciated a longer cable for the receiver.

It's all very well adding an extension, but you don't want the connection hidden behind a wall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not great quality, but great value., 3 Nov. 2015

Not great quality, but great value.
The bristles quickly get flattened by the weight of cables.
But at the end of the day it does its job.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor choice for overnight stays, 3 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have no idea why this product gets such good reviews.
I bought this bag for overnight work stays, to carry a fifteen inch laptop, accessories and my overnight kit.
It is poorly designed and made from poor quality materials.
The zips are difficult to close and often come open, but worse of all, nothing stays in the internal pockets.
I find it hard to believe that it actually sold for the full price.
I intend replacing it with a more expensive backpack from a brand I know.

Modeling Enterprise Architecture with TOGAF: A Practical Guide Using UML and BPMN (The MK/OMG Press)

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a well written book, offering great advice for actually using TOGAF, in real life, 20 Mar. 2015
This is a well written book, offering great advice for actually using TOGAF, in real life.
I read it on Safari Books Online and am buying a copy for my desk.

The TOGAF framework itself is very high level and makes few direct recommendations for its implementation. This book changes all that with real world applications and examples.

Having an opinion about how to use / deploy TOGAF is bound to be divisive - it is deliberately general purpose and open to interpretation. To demonstrate its usage, examples must be domain specific; in this case all the examples are for a web based discount holiday company. In my opinion, the example used is more 'green field' than most Enterprise Architects will experience day-to-day.

About a third of the book is an introduction to TOGAF. It makes a great desktop reference, with handy, well written explanations that I have mercilessly copied into my own documents. But it's not necessarily the best book for passing the exams. Again, because it quickly becomes specific, whereas the exam stresses generic best practice.

Finally, I am not convinced by the choice of modelling tool: Modelio. But hey: It's better than Visio.

Highly recommended as a desktop reference for practicing / newly qualified enterprise architects.

PS: The one star recommendation on Amazon.com is highly suspect - search for the author on Amazon and come to your own conclusions.

This review is from: This Is All Yours (Audio CD)
A colleague recently said to me that there were no new ideas in modern music. I had just bought 'This is All Yours' and played it for him. Nuff said
