  2. I've tried again @GettingBoredand it appears as the button was taking so long to load, that I assumed it wasn't where I thought it would be. It takes quite a while for the button to appear, but once it did, it did indeed take me to your PayPal page. Oh and you're very very welcome 🙌 I do think you should mention how much it costs you to run the server on that page. Or consider some form of monthly pop-up for those using the extension, to thank people for their continued use and to quietly draw their attention to the server costs and the fact you're funding it out of your own pocket.
  3. @GettingBoredFYI the donate button on the relevant page of your website doesn't appear to be working. Was able to donate via the link to your PayPal page from the house button in the extension bar though 🤑
  4. *BUMP* Downloaded in the last few days and already making for interesting reading on rightmove. Thanks, @GettingBored for all your hard work and @TheCountOfNowherefor the heads-up.
  5. Bit late coming back to this, but installed it the other day and been having the odd look around where I used to live in Londump. Seeing the asking price on this drop from £400k to £300k in two months brought a smile to my face: 1 bed flat in St George's Road, Borough Just made donation to it to keep the good news coming 🤑
  6. Are you using property-bee on an old version of Firefox?
  7. I hate Adam Curtis. What felt like weeks of him sat behind me in an edit suite with the door open tweaking with a sequence of some woman sobbing over some music or other is enough to drive a man to drink. And he did!
  8. As someone who was working at CBBC when the move to Salford for that department first became knowledge, I can confirm that's exactly what staffers were offered. If only they hadn't shut all the regional studios already, then this mass move to another site might not be necessary.
  9. It only takes one idiot with money to burn and while at the time I was glad to shift my flat as quickly as I did and be out of SE1, I now regret not sticking it on for 10% more. I suspect even at that, someone would have bitten and I wouldn't have the feeling that the EA had done a deal all along with the eventual purchaser.
  10. Went to my local Odeon yesterday afternoon, just before 4pm and prices changed to their 'peak' levels. What surprised me most was that of the 3 couples in the queue in front of me, every single one of them paid full price, despite it being "Orange Wednesday" (and everyone must know someone on Orange who could get the text ticket for them and send it on) and that Odeon themselves are doing a 40% discount until the end of March. Although the latter isn't advertised on their site at the moment, I'm pretty sure it was and that I was notified of it by them in their own weekly email. Odeon seem to be at the more expensive end of the cinema spectrum from local experience and I only went there because of the discount and the fact I can walk there in 5 minutes. If the missus had been coming too, it would have been Empire in High Wycombe (15 minute drive) on a Tuesday or Thursday for £3.95 Some people just don't seem that bothered about saving money, even when it's made really easy for them to do so.
  11. Looks like it's been updated. Twenty properties sold in SE1 (the biggest postcode in London I believe) in Febraury at the current count. Ouch!
  12. This site is the only thing that keeps me believing that at some point, property prices will have to return to a more sensible level. The problem is that as time goes on, this point in the future just seems to get further and further away. The VIs seem to be even more powerful than ever and even more determined to keep the bubble inflated. And should things go against them, then more printing is only a short flick of a switch away. I hate the fact I sold when I did, to whom I did and with the agent I did. Unfortunately there's little I can change about that now but on the bad days, I still let it eat away at me. Can you tell?! On the good days, I look at my combined bank balance, the 50% gains on my (limited) investments made since June 2009 and thank God I've got the option of leaving this country. The sooner the missus finishes her studies the better and I'm off.
  13. Thanks for taking the time to do that, moonriver, really interesting stuff and much appreciated. Obsessive compulsive much?!
  14. 9 High Town Road, SL6 1PA is a 3-bed terrace on the market for £350k and currently "under offer". Whilst it is undeniably beautifully done up inside and is a bedroom (and ensuite shower) bigger than most of the other terraced houses in that road, this is still a sizeable chunk more than the previous highest price paid in that road for a terrace £310k paid for #12 opposite in October 2007 which is also 3-bed. Bear in mind that these houses share on-street permit parking which is already stretched (and abused by blue badge holders with its proximity to town) and that Michael Shanly Homes own what was previously the Castle Hill Youth & Community Centre site opposite and will surely at some point return to their plans to build a load more flats in its place. Probably when they've managed to get permission to demolishing two neighbouring bungalows in nearby East Road and replace them with 15 flats. *sigh* 25 Lynton Green, SL6 6AN sold in May 2010 for £250k, but is now back on the market at £285k. It's clearly had some work done on it, but in a development that pre-crash had a ceiling price of £245k, it's all depressingly familiar. *double sigh* Am really struggling to see proof of anything that would support Halifax's assertion that average prices in Maidenhead were down 27.1% at the moment. Still, things could be a lot, LOT worse, as 5 minutes of news coverage is all it takes to remind you at the moment. So will go on counting my blessings instead. While occasionally grumping. However as 18 The Crescent is no longer showing as "under offer" but available, that also helps!
  15. Nope, re-read it a few times and tried doing a Google search for "second run" with relation to property but still none the wiser I'm afraid, Ash. I thought you might have meant second rung (as in next step up the property ladder) but you say you're a FTB so must admit, you've got me stumped!
