Re: BBC has disappeared across Europe!!!

know that in Norn Iron "the Russian" provides every channel under the sun, subscription and otherwise, for about 10% of SKY's valuation of their product alone. I don't use "the Russian" but increasingly I wonder why? I may well be insane paying about £70 more than I could. Sounds like valuable info...

Re: What the Papers Say 2012-13

It didn't appear in the Irish version only in the English and online editions DAVID HUMPHREYS looks like the smartest CEO in European rugby right now. The furore over his decision to dump Brian McLaughlin as head coach of Ulst...

If you do get it in hey will want to put the cable modem right beside the main telephone socket in the house. The best way to connect your wireless router then is to run an etherne...
