I think he wanted it for the lawn, not for harvesting corn! :tongue:

Re: Wanting a new surge protected extension strip

I'd be amazed to see a lawnmower harvesting corn... :crazy:

I wondered what it was! Guess I'm too young for this conversation. :wink:

Re: Wanting a new surge protected extension strip

I'm only 31 and know what the difference between a corn harvester and a cylinder mower is... :2funny:

Not so..., them's weeds growing at the base of the chopped down stalks. :tongue:

Nah, them's weeds between the camera and the mower, which is atop a grassy patch... :crazy:

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.

I don't often follow youtube links.

Now I know why it was a good decision :buck2:

Re: Wanting a new surge protected extension strip

So you left Plusnet but you can't keep away from their forums..., I guess Plusnet are doing something right then?

Do you recommend your new ISP? Incidentally how much is the broadband, you forgot to mention that bit?

I'm slightly concerned by their logo which you're using as your avatar. Makes me feel like I'm staring down the muzzle of a 12 bore shotgun! :huh:

Would you really want to trust your valuable electronics to a device sold by Aldi? Probably made from cheap inferior parts to keep price down.


Well no, I would not use one, I use one made by Belkin that came with a guarantee to protect your equiptment up to £ 50,000 worth of damage which is way above the cost of equiptment I have.

The problem these days is that no matter what it says in the advert, what it says on the box or what it looks like it can often be impossible to tell the difference between real and fake. The only way is to buy from a known supplier but even then that is not 100% guaranteed.

People often discover a fake the hard way, ie item breaks or causes a house fire !
