Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Slamtech, part of the new www.play.com online store.

Ordered a mobile phone battery on 7th April.

It turned up but was about a millimetre too long.

Sent it back once they responded to the last of multiple emails and gave me a freepost return address.

They said they sent a replacement on 21st April, it didn't arrive so they blamed Royal Mail on 25th June after many emails to them.

They said they sent a replacement on 25th June and it still hasn't arrived and they are no longer responding to emails or their (well hidden) phone number.

Judging by the feedback on their site, I am not the only one having problems. Play.com don't respond to emails so far either!!!

I hate it when online shops do this!!!!!!

In fairness to Apple, the Cinema Display is a damn good monitor, it just doesn't have the colour calibration we need.

i think the problem is that I come from parents who believed in good value. When specifying a machine I try to keep the costs to a minimum by buying the equipment I think will give us what we need, reliably and at the lowest price.

For instance, I won't specify a £600 graphics card where a £400 (or even £200) one will cover our current and future needs., so when someone comes along and tries to cut my specification even further, it sometimes causes problems, but also annoys me.

One of my favourite bands Metallica played Glastonbury last weekend and now playing Sonisphere on Sunday in Knebworth. All tickets sold out for both, so downloaded their Glastonbury set but will miss the Sonisphere set. Gutted.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

That sucks, had to put my first pet down the other year. Thought I would be able to cope, but didn't. It does get better with time.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

Sorry to hear about Lucky Dilli.

I know that you had not had him for long but in the short time you did have him I know you both became very attached to him. He didn't have the best of starts but at least you both gave him a taste of what his life should have been like from the beginning.

Hugs to both you and Natalie.

Run free over the Rainbow Bridge sweet Lucky.

Re: Moans and Pet Hates part 8

The car insurance companies I made enquiries with a year ago (and didn't use) are making credit checks on me again. Why? Should I be concerned? Should I complain?
