  1. I like the "Elite Properties" search function, with a minimum price selection of £300k.
  2. Out of interest, I had a quick rightmove scan of rental places in Selborne. I am astonished at what an expensive place it appears to be to rent there. I'll admit they seem to be tidy inside, but £2K pcm for a 3 bed cottage? What am I missing with regards to living there? It appears to be 4 miles from Alton station, which is over an hour into London, so why the outrageous price? My assumption is the current owners are in the "can't sell it for what it is worth () , so I'll rent it out" brigade. Edit: SP Edit 2: Ah, I was right . £800K, and it doesn't even come with the 4 acres. Looks like it could be Heather Cottage. They still want a bit of "profit" it would seem.
  3. I am clearly not framing my question correctly, probably due to my lack of understanding, but thanks anyway.
  4. Thanks again. If nominally prices remain the same, and I agree with the plausibility of that, could a reason for the real price drop be an increase in income? Or are you saying it would be just based on its cost, versus everything else in the economy? If we are getting poorer, due to price inflation and below inflation pay rises, I find it impossible to believe nominal prices would remain static?
  5. Still don't understand why, so excuse my ignorance. Are you implying that nominally prices will remain approximately the same, by indicating real term falls, or am I misuderstanding? If so, what is it that drives real term falls of houses prices? Thanks
  6. Right so, assuming real term falls rather than nominal, what is the benefit of my continued renting? Real term falls with a fixed low interest rate mortgage would sound to me like I might as well buy now?
  7. More likely to have the unexploded ordnance in the ground post war I'd imagine, as opposed to pre .
  8. There are 2 routes into the fubra network, and one of them has an issue (the device in question has a fubra domain name). I could speculate why some use one path, rather than the other, but there are quite a few potential reasons. LINX is the London Internet Exchange, which your ISP will almost certainly have a peering with, and traffic will cross one of their 2 LANs (juniper and extreme I think, but that's not significant, I'm just a network geek). It looks, based on the device name, as if fubra have connections to both, so based on which way your traffic is routing, you may hit the device that seems to have issues, or not as the case may be. Hope that has answered your question! Edit: rereading my post, it reads like I am saying linx2.thn.fubra.net is the dodgy device. I guess it could be, but actually I think it is something behind that further inside the fubra network.
  9. Because it is an issue within the Fubra network, NOT ISP, browser, adware, plugin etc. related.
  10. Doccy, can you recommend that they shut down the peering on "linx2.thn.fubra.net"? It could be misconfiguration, but if the network is designed for traffic to be balancing across both peerings, then it could be 50% of website users that have been affected for weeks... pretty unacceptable really. If it were my network, I'd shut down that peering that seems to be having the issues, so all traffic hits linx1.thn.fubra.net, and try and resolve the issue from there. That said, I assume fubra have some network guys working for them, and have already considered this... so there must be a good reason for not doing so?
  11. Gazumped on one house we offered on. Very little coming on the market of the type we are interested in... and our search area is quite large (W. Berks/ Hants).
  12. DNS won't help - it looks to be routing. Users reporting problems appear to be entering the Fubra network via: linx2.thn.fubra.net I'm one of the lucky ones without problems, and I am coming in via: linx1.thn.fubra.net Seems to be 2 peerings, so it's probably some dodgy kit/ config inside the Fubra network behing that linx peering that is the root cause.
  13. Must be routing dependant upon ISP. I guess that then depends what links Fubra have out to t'interweb. mtr from my home box looks pretty clean following a short test... as you can see from below I am with virginmedia. reddwarf ( Sun Jun 10 07:17:05 2012Resolver error: No error returned but no answers given. of fields quit Packets PingsHost Loss% Snt Last Avg Best Wrst StDev1. 0.0% 52 2.0 2.0 1.9 2.4 0.12. glfd-bam-2.network.virginmedia.net 0.0% 52 39.3 39.7 38.4 49.8 2.03. glfd-core-2a-xe-110-2.network.virginmedia.net 0.0% 52 39.9 40.8 38.6 52.3 3.54. glfd-bb-1a-ae7-0.network.virginmedia.net 0.0% 52 39.2 49.5 38.9 217.0 31.75. nrth-bb-1b-ae4-0.network.virginmedia.net 0.0% 52 42.8 48.4 41.4 150.5 19.26. tele-ic-4-ae0-0.network.virginmedia.net 0.0% 52 45.1 51.5 43.8 124.2 17.57. linx1.thn.fubra.net 0.0% 52 45.1 45.3 43.9 48.4 0.98. 0.0% 52 46.6 47.4 46.3 49.2 0.69. housepricecrash.co.uk 0.0% 51 46.7 48.5 46.2 59.2 3.3
