Re: The sound of electric.....

Audible warning of approach, required but seldom used by cyclists. Used to be a bell, but can be the human voice. Reversing lorries do it these days, of course. Thankfully the new requirement isn't for a bell or a beep sound. Imagine how unpleasant the street environment would be if all cars had to...

Painting cardboard buses

"Let us suppose you are losing an argument. The facts are overwhelmingly against you, and the more people focus on the reality the worse it is for you and your case. Your best bet in these circumstances is to perform a manoeuvre that a great campaigner describes as “throwing a dead cat on the t...

Re: Flexible pension drawdown confusion

If you had a totally separate SIPP for the £ 2880 contributions, presumably you could take 25% as a tax free cash sum at a time of your choosing. How it works if that SIPP has been consolidated with a earlier one where you have already taken the 25% isn't clear. In my experience SIPP providers hand...

Re: Flexible pension drawdown confusion

I have been told that any growth in the SIPP as well as the new contributions will be subject to the 25% tax free draw-down which is good, I was not sure on that. The relevant values will be made available on request. Existing and new contributions are held in the one account, (Fidelity have two ac...

Re: Voicemail

I used the Hullomail app successfully on Android. I see there's an Apple version of it as well.

It all works pretty simply, diverting missed/busy/unanswered calls to a number, and messages are then delivered to the app using your data connection.

Re: Facebook how to....

What I want is really quite simple. My friend has 14 years of posts on their TimeLine, and I want to be able to scroll through their posts over the 14 years without having to drudge through the (far more voluminous) posts by others that intersperse them. I'm amazed this isn't catered for as it seem...

Re: Neighbours from hello

That Brett's a master of multitasking, having the presence of mind to record his neighbours' argument while descending the stairs to collect his takeaway.

I understand in another similar case the argument was so loud that it was possible to do this from the comfort of the apartment.

Re: Things that make you go oooh thread....

On mine there is no arrow (or triangle). The indication comes from the graphic, with the fuel line on the petrol pump being the indicator. The car shows it to be on the right (which it is) and the motorhome shows it to be on the left (again, which it is). Neither works in my campervan. No arrow, an...

2. Do YouInvest support this type of flexibility - ie, swapping from UFPLS withdrawals to PCLS only and back to UFPLS? So I don't have direct experience of it, but I can't imagine how the answer could be "no". If any of your pot is uncrystallised then you can apply to either make a UFPLS ...

Re: Flexible pension drawdown confusion

Hargreaves Lansdown keep the 2 seperate. You have a SIPP account for uncrystalized then when you want to crystallize you transfer to the other account. This is a much better way of doing things. Each to their own, but I prefer the Youinvest way. You don't have to invest and consider 2 different pot...

Re: The future of lpg?

Some campervans have integrated lpg tanks for cooking, heating etc. which need filling at a garage. If lpg loses popularity as a vehicle fuel then the demand from campervans is unlikely to be enough to sustain them so they'll struggle to find it. https://www.rac.co.uk/drive/advice/emissions/what-is...

Oil tanker attack

Can anyone give a reference to objective appraisal(s) of the available evidence regarding who might be behind the recent attacks (or explosions anyway) on the Norwegian and Japanese oil tankers in the Gulf?
