  1. I just ran pagespeed insights, I then ran it through GTMetrix and it is pretty bad. 15/100 is really bad, it will really struggle to rank on google. If you do the same, you will see why it is so slow and low scored. If your site runs on wordpress, a couple of free plugins will quickly sort most of it.
  2. I get the ones that are calling from Microsoft help desk. Played with one a bit. He couldn't understand why I didn't have certain things on my screen or keyboard. Kept asking if I was using Mac. No no, definitely windows. Asked for version. Told him 3.11. He hadn't heard of it. Told him definitely a legit windows o/s. He spoke to his mate in some Asian language, could hear his mate cracking up. He then asked if I was taking the p. Told him of course I was, but so was he. He hung up.
  3. Or as is often the case in the semiconductor business.... Straight off the main production line and out of the door. Huge money being made by individuals. I know a component broker, who with one manufacturer, is getting 1kpcs/pcm of a $100 device for $20ea. They spend $500kpa with a product manager from a huge semi fab. The guy probably has a 6 figure salary and must be getting millions from this. The industries most open secret. I contacted said manufacturer and told them we both know I could get the device for x, forcing them to buy back their own business. Only done it as I heard that a big order destined for a Turkish van plant never have made it to transit. The product manager bottled it, due to huge volume and they had a line stop. So as I had a large order, went front door, at back door price. Mrs THT worked in the fashion industry and the far east suppliers would over produce and then say if the brand didn't buy the excess, it would end up elsewhere. Hence not all 'fake' designer gear is really fake. Most is cheap copies, but some is off the same line as the legit stuff.
  4. Some nice 6 month fixed interest for the system. PP are awful. I remember a few years ago selling something on Ebay. Buyer lodged a complaint, I responded with technical evidence and buyer didn't respond. They closed it in their favour.
  5. When I was on a fixed, iirc you could overpay and reduce the monthly, reduce the term or have it off the capital. Choose to take it off the capital. If you can pay (and overpay) then why reduce the monthly. Reducing the term is ok, but you are committing. This was with nationwide. Having some money and a cheap mortgage seemed ok, but following a thread I started here the other week, I have been paying off the mortgage. Due to the low balance, it is on an svr/bmr, so no overpayment limits. Paid half off in the last week, will contact them for a settlement figure next week. Then move and start all over again...
  6. Just had a look at iShares physical ETF's and the custodian is JPM. A bit off-putting.
  7. I thought that at first. Now its every 48hrs.
  8. What was yesterday's... 1/4 QB? Straight in the bin. They must spend a fortune on marketing. It isn't cheap paper and print. Think I'll send them a cease and desist. After all, they only let me have 3 sovs.
  9. For those that missed out on bargain sovs, fear not, they have a cracking new deal... Half oz of silver for a mere £700 1927 crown, 50% silver. Don't miss out! Hope they have plenty in stock 🤔
  10. Tried the other day and again just now. Use new email address, input billing address (which they may have already), choose deliver to different address and input new address. When I click continue it just reloads the screen again. All mandatory fields have been completed and it doesn't advise why it wont progress to the next screen. Anyone else had this?
  11. Start of the week... Get some gold 50p's... £700 for 1/4oz of 917. Today... Get some silver 50p's... £60 for 1/4oz of 925. I dont want your 50p's!!! If you could let me have some more sovs at £224, or maybe 1oz Brits, say £900 a pop?
  12. For anyone that can get to Farringdon station, hgm are hard to beat imo. A lot of the coins are bullion grade. They handed me a 1oz krug that had seen better days a few months back. But over the counter trade and back on a train 5 minutes later. Suits me.
  13. Presumably you need to use a different email address to previous orders? Otherwise that along with delivery address is a pretty easy way to match repeat orders.
  14. How do you get around the card holder address?
