  1. Other than asking the landlord, and checking the land registry for price sold and year sold (using a bit of rough guestimates), is there any way of finding out one's mortgage repayment for the property to avoid those who are paying over the rent?
  2. Very true, programming is like learning a language - not much can replace actual experience. As a final year uni undergrad, a lot of the points made here are very valid. The quality is slipping, whilst delusion of one's actual value increases at a rapid pace. Employers arent exactly helping themselves either, expecting something for nothing. Worst of all is that these soon to be graduates expect high paying jobs coming straight from uni with very little experience... yeah, right.
  3. Nailed it on the head. So what if your doing 48hrs, are they good productive hours? Getting sick of this whole "you must be putting in 50+ hrs to be working hard". Its just never that simple, and yet I've overheard many conversations that employee X putting in 50hrs+ should get the promotion - and not a whisker about the quality or results of their work.
  4. Simply not profitable. Asked for a credit increase 6 months ago and was declined despite the fact my account is paid off in full direct debit.
  5. Could never get my head around why people would spend loads on an X5 when there's plenty of nice cars on the market - other than the plain obvious :-p
  6. Was this not documented in a BBC documentary ... years ago? The whole self certification schema. Now if all the FSA and CML members managed to miss this news flash, well I don't know what to say.
  7. Its not all lack of education's fault. Society (including the TV) teaches that when one is feeling down that "Retail therapy" is the way forward. Noteably it also picks up a drink when they're feeling really low. The fact is, you learn it from somewhere. You'd only have to watch spendaholics for a couple of episodes to see that behind many's spending is typically some emotional trauma undealt.
  8. Partly, but then this is part of the problem with parties and huge 'donation' funding. They all have their own business interests, and those cash lines wont stay open by magic.
  9. More chance of a heroine addict giving up their addiction before politicians act in the public's best interest. Even the recently elected Sarkozy is losing their marbles, with the recent backing of "we'll block peer 2 peer usage on the internet", yeah sure thats really going to fix their economy...!
  10. Its really common across Coventry too. Infact I know of a friend who's parents did exactly that. Dad works 7 days a week (!), mother 5-6 days, not back till late. Kids having their days planned and told what to do every single day. Now they've grown up, the kid is in a total mess in many ways, despite being shipped to a private school! And he's not the only one, funnily enough most of his private school mates are in the same kind of mess... I wont list all the major problems :-p Oh well, some are just brought up to consume and not question, not much you can do about that.
  11. http://www.centralvalleybusinesstimes.com/...es/001/?ID=7042 I tend to consider looking at the states in some respects as looking into the future in the UK, so if this is anything to go by...happy times for some!
