Cheers. I knew what the song was because it's in English on the other side. I just hadn't a clue of the language. No idea why it's in that language either. Can't say I've seen many Kiwi's at her nursery...

Does she go to school in a zoo or something?

I don't think I've ever met anybody from New Zealand in the flesh, although I have seen a kiwi in a zoo.

Therefore, I'm not convinced they are real people at all.  Perhaps the Australians are 'at it'.

Australians are all descended from the prisoners who were sent there.

New Zealanders are descended from the warders.

My 3 year old's homework. Anyone any idea what language this is? Put it into Google and getting mixed messages. Think it might be Maori. IMG_20200203_135242448.jpeg

Looked like the words to a haka to me

After I last years downfall of card sharing, the Kodi set up being as slow as Berra and not trusting IPTV, I am going to bite the bullet and pay for TV again.

I currently get my phone & broadband through Sky but who offers the best deals/channels on TV? I want plenty Football (Scottish preferred), movies and kids.

So Virgin, Sky or BT?

Thank you.

Thank you.

What channels do you tend to watch on Sky? I gave up the ZGemma box and went with a NowTV stick. Haven't looked back. You get a shit ton of boxsets and the live channels are:-

 

Sky 1

Sky Atlantic

Sky Living

Sky Arts

Sky Comedy

Fox

GOLD

Comedy Central

MTV

Discovery Channel

Nat Geo Wild

 

£8.99 for that but I think I've paid that about 3 months. The best thing for me is that you go online and threaten to leave and they reduce the price. I'm currently paying £5.49 for 5 months.

 

You can get the same thing with the Movies pass. £11.99 a month but I'm currently £7.19.

 

You do get Sports passes and they are £9.99 a day, £14.99 a week or £30odd a month. Not sure how that compares to actually having Sky.

 

NowTV, Netflix and Cooncil TV is enough for me tbh and doesn't break the bank.

 

Edited, Kids is £3.99 a month on it as well. Never had that but I assume it's the channels you'd get on Sky normally.

Never even thought about Now TV. Just always thought it was an on demand thing.

Will look into that too, thanks.

All emails sent from work to myself keep going to my spam folder. I can’t seem to change this and as usual any google online “help” tool is fucking useless. It’s a gmail account.

Whenever you open a spam email, there's a big button that says REPORT NOT SPAM. What you described happened to me before, and after a few "NOT SPAM" clicks, Gmail eventually got the message. 

Also, it's worth going into your settings, then [Filters and Blocked Addresses] and making sure that you haven't somehow got a filter set up to block your work emails (like I have for The Gift Experience below)

I have my own question while I'm here. Looking at my spam folder, I've got lots of messages in my spam folder from different family and friends etc. However, the email addresses are completely different, and it's quite obviously spam. They're all in the same format. But does this my gmail has been hacked somehow, i.e. it's got a list of my contacts and is now pretending to send me messages from them. I don't see how else it could get a list of my friends, but on the other hand, I've no other indication my account has been hacked.

It could be that someone else who shares a lot of contacts with you has been compromised and their address book harvested to generate lots of slightly convincing spam.

In my case, I think I have sorted it. I’ve added the email addresses to the relevant contacts on my address book on my phone. I think if they are linked then it should be known not to be spam of it’s from a direct contact I’ve added. There’s only three I need for work but could be a pain in the arse if you need to add loads.

Just checked and apparently I've been 'pwned' seven times in the last few years. 

Not really any the wiser about  what damage has been done, but at least I've learned a new word.

Time to change your password!

 

Internet trivia: "pwned" is a corruption of "owned" which is internet slang for being defeated by something or someone. It comes from typing too fast, as the p key is right next to the o key.

The account I used for MSN/Bebo/Facebook etc back in the day has been 'pwned' 4 times. 

My account I use now hasn't.
