5.0 out of 5 stars Starting Out, 25 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Outstanding fast paced story about first contact which speculates on how survivalist types could react to suddenly finding themselves in control of an alien starship with faster than light drive, teleports and fabricators.They have to wrest control of the ship from The Horde and later protect Earth from invasion. Nuttall is currently one of my favourite sf writers and he has yet to produce a turkey.

Comfortable and does what it is supposed to. The black cover keeps the cushion clean and makes it less noticeable if this is likely to bother you at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helter Skelter, 16 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant debut album by a group who went on to be much more after the departure of two of its founder members. It is a roller-coaster ride of thrashing guitars, banging drums and tortured vocals. The songs force a harsh mixture of isolation and extreme emotions into your ears and is still far from easy listening so many years later. In some ways I think the album is an audible projection of what Edvard Munch tried to present in his series of paintings of the same title. I prefer it to some of the later records but their popularity indicates I may be in a minority. Essential listening form the early days of Punk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Down in the Dark, 16 Sept. 2014
This review is from: Tubeway Army (Audio CD)
Not quite as slick as the later "Replicas" this is a synthesiser and guitar based journey into Numan's darker side. The arrangements are often quite stark and the lyrics more Cyberpunk than Punk and, although Numan's first singles owe a lot to The Pistols, The Damned, etc. this album is closer to heavy rock in places.
The themes are spread between loneliness: "Every Day I Die"
death: "The Life Machine"
isolation: "Zero Bars"
science fiction: "Listen to the Sirens"
and a brief flirtation with homosexuality: "Jo the waiter"
Not easy listening but an interesting first official album.
This version also includes "Living Ornaments '78, Live at the Roxy" which is an official release of a recording previously available as a bootleg.

Gold plated, nice and long and much better than the cheap ones you can get from discount or Pound shops. They seem to have a nice positive connection in use and are a steal for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get connected, 16 Sept. 2014
For a wall mounted monitor or television I consider this essential as the normal leads stick out several centimetres and can make being close to a wall quite tricky.
I don't know how long the swivel will continue to be a positive connection but I rarely remove leads once they are in place so wear and tear will not be a problem for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful but not essential, 16 Sept. 2014

This contains some useful guidance but I found that Amazon holds your hand through the whole process anyway making the book less than essential. Although the author assumes you will use Microsoft Word/Office, the instructions also work with Star Office and probably Open Office.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power to the Laptop, 16 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does exactly what it should and came with the clover leaf lead. Very quick delivery.
I use my laptop for making and recording music and have found this charger makes even more electrical noise than the Dell original. Fortunately I have a good battery.
For normal use it is excellent and a good substitute for the much more expensive Dell model.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Better Night's Sleep., 16 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No the best product I have used but adequate. Good value for money and seem okay to use a couple of times although if you are using them for swimming and not sleeping stick to the manufacturer's guidelines and use them once only.
I have used other brands of silicone plugs which can be used three times but cost more. They also seemed to be slightly softer material although it may just be the batch.
I would probably buy this brand again when I need some more.
No problems with the seller who was excellent and very fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nelson would be proud., 10 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the excellent finale to a riveting series about the old Ark Royal. A highly recommended story of first contact, conflict and cooperation. If you have read either of the first two books you should read them all. I did find Nuttall's view of the future Royal Navy interesting is a bit anachronistic but it helps the story. I would also recommend reading his other novels. He is a more than competent writer with novel ideas about alien contact.
