My lift has fell through so if anyone is off there and can offer two seats in the car then you would be a lifesaver, obviously I'll ding you some cash over for petrol money.

The last train is before the gig ends so that's out of the question which is a bit of a bugger.

Buy/Sell / Sell: Nokia 5800 Xpress Music Phone
« on: November 17, 2009, 06:02:58 pm »
I'm selling my T-Mobile Nokia 5800 Express Music Phone that I got in May. It's in mint condition, boxed with charger, hands free kit and the other usual out of the box stuff. It also comes with an 8GB Micro card for all your music and pictures to go on to.

All the features are on here:


The average Ebay price is between 120-150 for used, I can trade it in for 95 but thought I'd see if anyone on here would take it off my hands for a 100?

Cheers  :thumb

Ask/Tell Haxed / Clothes alterations in and around Middlesbrough?
« on: September 08, 2009, 08:02:07 pm »
I'm off to an event next week that I'm knocking out my tuxedo for. I've only wore it once previously and it was a last minute purchase so I've tried it on tonight to see what it looks like, the body of the jacket fits me great but the sleeves could do with taking up an inch to show cuffs and watch. Does anyone know anywhere I can get this done in Middlesbrough, Normanby, Eston, Guisborough, Redcar area?

Any help appreciated  :thumb

Movies, Shows & Books / Product Placements in Film
« on: August 30, 2009, 08:56:19 pm »
Does it bug the shit out of everyone else or is it just me? I'm sat watching Iron Man on Sky Movies at the minute and it looks like everyone in America drives Audi's. There's another particular cringe worthy bit were Tony Stark is eating a Burger King burger.

I know it's always been done in films but of recent years it seems to have got really bad. GMC vehicles in Transformers, far too many to mention in James Bond films of late!!!

It totally detracts from the movie and it gets to the point that I actually now find myself try to spot them in movies which is really fucking annoying.

So does anyone have a problem with this? What are the worst films for this?

Movies, Shows & Books / District 9
« on: August 05, 2009, 12:20:09 pm »
This is easily the film most I'm most excited about seeing at the minute. It's by first timer Neil Blomkamp with a little help from a certain Peter Jackson.

if anyone doesn't know, this is what's raised up from the ashes of the failed Halo production after the two studios started squabbling over control and costs. After the project got pulled Blomkamp and Jacko's Mrs were looking through Blomkamp's old film shorts and adverts (which include the fucking ace Citroen transformer adverts) and decided to do a full scale version of a short which has turned into District 9.

I'm shit at film guides so lifted from IMDB:

Thirty years ago, aliens made first contact with Earth. Humans waited for the hostile attack, or the giant advances in technology. Neither came. Instead, the aliens were refugees, the last survivors of their home world. The creatures were set up in a makeshift home in South Africa's District 9 as the world's nations argued over what to do with them. Now, patience over the alien situation has run out. Control over the aliens has been contracted out to Multi-National United (MNU), a private company uninterested in the aliens' welfare - they will receive tremendous profits if they can make the aliens' awesome weaponry work. So far, they have failed; activation of the weaponry requires alien DNA. The tension between the aliens and the humans comes to a head when an MNU field operative, Wikus van der Merwe (Sharlto Copley), contracts a mysterious virus that begins changing his DNA. Wikus quickly becomes the most hunted man in the world, as well as the most valuable - he is the key to unlocking the secrets of alien technology. Ostracized and friendless, there is only one place left for him to hide: District 9


It looks fucking immense. It's a shame that Blomkamp has ruled himself out of any future Halo projects.

Movies, Shows & Books / Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland
« on: August 05, 2009, 12:01:36 pm »
I seen the pictures for this in Empire magazine the other day but wasn't too impressed but after having a quick look at the trailer online it actually looks fairly good.

The trailers here


Movies, Shows & Books / What are you currently reading?
« on: July 28, 2009, 11:48:59 am »
A bit like the 'What are you currently listening to' thread but with books. Post what you're currently reading, a little about the book and if you would recommend it. Hopefully we might get some suggestions going back and forth.

I'm currently reading:

Never Hit a Jellyfish with a Spade: How to Survive Life's Smaller Challenges by Guy Browning
It's an offbeat irreverent how to guide to lifes smaller issues. It's a pretty funny look at random things that cause us problems.

I'd recommend this if you like quirky funny books.

Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
One of my all time favourite reads, it's a satirical take of military madness and the desire of the troops to survive it.

It can be a little hard to get into at first as it bounces between characters frequently but stick with it and you'll love it.

I've just finished:

The Timewaster Letters by Robin Cooper
Synoposis pinched from the net: For several years, Robin Cooper has been plaguing department stores, hotels,associations, fan clubs and a certain children's book publisher with his letters. From Prince Charles to the Peanut Council, Harrods to the British Halibut Association - no one is safe. So who is Robin Cooper? Architect, thimble designer, trampoline tester and wasp expert, Robin Cooper is all of these things - it just depends on the person he's writing to...

Basically it's a series of funny letters the author has wrote to organisations and their often more weird responses! It's well worth a giggle.

Again, I'd recommend this if you like quirky funny books.

Movies, Shows & Books / Where The Wild Things Are
« on: July 28, 2009, 11:29:43 am »
I've just seen the trailer for the Spike Jonze film adaptation of this and it's just made me smile like a little kid (Yes, I know I am a little kid).

I used to really love the book as a kid, I can remember reading it in nursery school. It's actually one of my first memories of reading books along with the Very Hungry Caterpillar. I was a bit dubious of a film being made but it actually looks pretty sweet.


Movies, Shows & Books / The Rat Pack
« on: July 23, 2009, 08:01:38 pm »
Anyone just watched this on BBC1 now, it's a series? It's about Rat Catchers in London and their dog who catch rats.

Haha I go shooting with the lads and their Dad and Charlie their dog has bit me before haha, it's a vicious little fucker.

Well worth a watch, they've got some great craic on him!

General / Excel Help Required?
« on: July 15, 2009, 11:17:50 am »
I like to think I'm a dab hand at Excel but something has totally stumped me today so any help would be appreciated!

I think I need to use SUMPRODUCT as I'm pretty sure I've used this previously on the same query I have now successfully but I can't find it in my bank of old workbooks.

I have in the first column the values Y/N and then next column the month they relate to so it looks something like this

Column A        Column B
Y                   April
Y                   April
N                   April
Y                   April
Y                   May
N                   May
Y                   May

On a summary table I need to find out how many "Y" relate to April etc. I know I need to use a COUNTIF formula to total the "Y"s as they aren't a numeric value so I'm guessing this will have some affect on my formula. 

I could use a pivot table to work out how many relate to April etc but Pivot tables need updatin after future periods whereas if I use a formula it will auto update when the data entry clerks add data in for future periods.

Can anyone shed any light on the best way of doing this?

Cheers!  ;D
