  1. This is the best website for checking availability imho http://www.samknows.com/broadband/broadband_availability I work from home as a Software Developer and wanted to move to the country... in North Yorkshire... as people have said it varies from village to village (and from one side of a village to another. I spent a lot of time on that site! No chance of 3G for me here, and a little further in to the Dales there's still no mobile signal at all! One place I lived I tried satellite (in the days before the village I was living in was connected to broadband, so a few years ago now) but the latency was pretty terrible.
  2. Been reading this for ages. Consistently good. By the way if anyone has a Kindle there's a collection available at this address.
  3. £145,000 or £155,000 in village location (that once had a Post Office, murder trial coming up later this year). (edit - both within 3 miles, nothing within 1 mile, the result of living in the country!)
  4. Methinks you have been reading too much Daily Mail. Hopefully you can list some of these available jobs?
  5. Well I heard a bit from Nick Clegg on the Today program this morning where he was saying that any cuts would not be being brought in until next April.
  6. My mortgage will finish when I'm 60. That's because I had to "start again" after a divorce.
  7. north North Yorkshire correspondent... Ripon - now Original Factory shop (moved from smaller unit now to let) Northallerton - Wilkinsons (complaints from locals about lowering the tone - I've always liked Wilko's!) Richmond - now a frozen food outlet (think a more local version of Iceland / Farmfoods)
  8. A Post Graduate Certificate in Education is the standard teaching course that could be taken by any graduate (probably still can) to qualify as a teacher in the UK. It has nothing to do with a failed Master's degree. My ex-wife had one.
  9. Back in my day things were very different. When I graduated in the late 1970s it was more that any degree showed that you were in the "top 10%". So the fact that my chosen career was IT was not affected by my decision to study Politics, in fact back then the main computer companies specifically targeted non Computer degrees for jobs in programming and technical support - unless you were looking to write compilers. Actually I'm not convinced that a Computing degree is still much use in the real world (judging by some of the graduates I mix with). It's definitely personality, attitude & intelligence that count.
  10. Some other reasons why there might be "No chain" that I've come across... 1) Probate sale 2) Second home of some description 3) Seller moving abroad 4) Older person moving to care or to live with children
