I know I'm just encouraging wanton materialism here but was looking round for a few tees to buy and noticed this place is in its final day of 60% off everything, and has a few decent bits.

I'm sorry, I think I said 'a few decent bits', as opposed to 'everything that gets the 100% seal of approval from everyone, forever, esp. Happy Face'

I was commenting on those brands, not the site.  The site has a few decent bits (see the link I posted above).

Yep, seems very good at the minute for what I have used it for. Only think that is bugging me is that it does little beeps everytime you touch a key and then trying to work out how to run that off. Its on a contract as well, seems that a certain someone couldnt get one  :shifty:!

Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

He's actually got one of them as well! Had it for a while like, this thing is actually quite impressive, slow but picks up just as much.

2 hour charge will do about 3 big rooms, spotless.

£160 is still quite a lot though, and it doesn't have a smiley face on it.

Actually it was £140 with £60 off, got mixed up.

It does as good a job and you don't have to move.

One thing you've got to understand about my old man is that he's a gadget freak. I honestly hand on heart think he was the first person in the world to own an electric tin-opener! He had the first (generation) ever CD player (Technics) and paid nearly £1000 back then for it and two CD's just after i was born (very early 80's) he currently has about 10 coffee grinders, 4 garlics crushers, 5 knife sharpeners, 4-5 sets of top notch knives, all sorts of s***, stocked up, and really, never used! But its how he likes to blow his cash.

He's always wanted one of these but they've always been £300+, saw it on offer the other day and bought it.

If anyone has a small flat they'd honestly never have to vacuum up ever again, just set the timer when they are at work and charge back up when they get in. House this size though its pretty much pointless imo.

I'd worry about it chewing up things I didn't want it to though (such as wires). Least with manually vacuuming you are aware of what is around and can move things if you need to.

It can't. Its got feelers and sensors, picks up only whats on the floor, if it even catches frey ends on rugs etc, it knows, then unravels itself and marks that areas in its computer as no go.

You also get this little marker which means it can't go past it, so you could put that in front of your wires etc if you didn't trust it and it won't go there.

Ebuyer.com do their own version for £85 though I can't vouch how good it is. They've got a cheaper boxier one for £63. Obviously the Roomba is the original and probably best.

Get a life?  Well, once I nearly found one, but the link was broken.
