Good luck!
I found moving quite stressful - how did I manage to cram so much stuff into a one bedroom flat ?

Re: Ratesetter oddness...can't set rate!

Yes agree, it seems to be impossible to 'tweak' on-market sums
Conspiracy or cock-up?

No, I get a Change your unmatched money screen which bundles together all unmatched sums, and only allows one of three options :(Last matched, Lender queue, Front of queue)

Re: Ratesetter oddness...can't set rate!

Ah thanks, that works for new money (although not obvious in the new format)
Still can't tweak the rates of 'On Market' funds though - something I could do previously

Have you tried recently? I just set up a new investment and the 'set your own rate' option wasn't there as far as I could tell

They are very comfortable.
At recent festival I saw John Shuttleworth. He seems very sensible, and I found myself nodding in agreement.

Ratesetter oddness...can't set rate!

Just been checking my Ratesetter account, and things seem to have changed. I have two sums sat on the 1 yr market at different rates. I thought I'd drop the rate on one of them a bit to try and get it earning, but I don't seem to be able to change the rate on one of the sums in isolation- it forcing...

People in general aren't good at grid refs. Add a noisy radio channel and stress, and 'GRID 513296 174629 is a lot more difficult than "fragrant.wombat.turd"

Re: You can't get lost with this App - What3Words

You need a phone with GPS I guess, but it doesn't need a mobile signal to locate you.
It makes me wonder how the group in the shipping container got a GPS fix...or made a mobile call for that matter

Are they going to have this available in stand-alone GPS units?

Re: phones with compass

You can download as many as you like, but they won't necessarily work! If you know where the base stations are and thus the location of the phone, presumably an app can solve for where north is. It's not going to work if there isn't a signal. Presumably GPS can tell you where north is, but again it...
