Re: Taking Photographs - The Legal Perspective

The guy plead guilty and as such I wouldn't read too much into it. Can you explain that? We're not talking about someone that smashed a bottle in someone's face and admitted it - this is a Breach of the Peace charge, which is down to someone's opinion as it is little more than a catch-all charge wh...

Re: What is it? Toward/Innellan

Thanks for the reminder, I'd forgotten that I hadn't posted back with the details of the site after it was better identified.

The info has been listed, and there also some recent pics of the site here:

Nice pics, it looks quite smart for it's age. Does make you wonder how come there has to be all the hassle of piers and berthing, and congestion on roads near rivers and firths when there's toys like that around. Is anyone serious about applying 'innovative' or 'lateral' thinking, or developing alte...

Don't Union Jacks get flown on boats, and Union Flags on buildings?

Or is this a hint about the level of the Clyde in the next few years 8O

That's a nasty story in ninatoo's account, but probably a reasonable example of what can happen. As I said before, just because it's wireless and you can't see what's happening doesn't make it any less like having someone walk in through your front door without asking, and plugging a cable into your...

Gosh, isn't the Daily Record up to date, or stuck for a space to fill. I think anyone with web access and half an interest knew this some time ago. The downside is that everyone 'in the business' knows about this, and it's easily defeated by making sure the phone's really off, or even more technical...

What you don't know though, is whether or not DVLA came up with the rather novel concept that SN07 might considered offensive, or were prompted by someone with an east coast accent. After all, while they felt the need to pull: PUB 1C They were quite happy to issue: PUB 1G Still, they know why they d...

I think there's a real case of "What you can't see can't hurt you" with this issue. Because your connection, your network, your bandwidth, and your account (which YOU will be paying for in the UK, unless you're very fortunate) is being accessed by wireless, you can't see it happening. Nor...

Gotcha...

Half asleep and thinking where that could have been at New Lanark, and selectively ignored the reference to Lanark and the racecourse.

Clock should have been a clue too!

Need more sleep :)

While it would hardly be of the order of the trips to warm climates to look at useless train systems, the geniuses behind the new Transport Museum might have been better advised to jump on a (sorry) train and have a look at somewhere like Beaulieu, the National Motor Museum, which manages to survive...

Back in the late seventies we used to take 'em to Robox to get done. Were they that dear? :) :) :) Four function calculator was in the region of £70 in the 1970s (and remember, that was a 1970s £70!). Scientific calculators were in the region of £120, or as much over that as you could afford, and n...

I think glasgowken's post summed it all up. I feel so much deja vu after the farce that brought is the abortion of the Scottish Parliament, you'd think we (or rather those that hold the purse strings) would have learnt better by now, but that would mean forgetting prestige, and concentrating on the ...
