        Striking the match away from you is for girlies.

          The girlies are always right though. But thats another handy tip.

          The trick with striking a match is to brush and not sweep the match across the pack if you catch my drift.
          Hold at around 45deg toward the pack and strike bluntly at the strip.
          So simple, yet most still 'sweep'.

            Handy Tip for anyone in Cork going to gigs at the Marquee. Logged on to TicketBasterd to buy 2 tickets for Biffy Clyro for my eldest
            Tickets €37.50 but they wanted €4.50 extra per ticket.

            Rang ProMusica, they sell tickets over the counter €37.50 no extra charge!

            €9 fee for 1 transaction, TicketBasterd can go suck a big one. On principal wouldn't give it to them. Tip: buy your tickets from ProMusica or other outlets.

              Tickets.ie offer a similar service for GAA matches as Ticket Tout do. Again without the "service charge" For instance Dublin v Wexford and Kidare v Meath or Carlow 29th June.

              Tickets.ie €30.00 + €1.50 postage or print at home for free.
              Ticketmaster €30.00 + €3.00 "Service Charge" free post, free print at home and free collect.

                Always exercise extreme caution when either zipping or unzipping, in the absence of undergarments.

                  Even when it's someone else you're unzipping ...

                        On a more pleasant note, today the EU banned additional charges beyond the actual cost of processing a credit card payment.

                          This is probably as good a thread as any to ask this - can anyone recommend a cheap-but-effective dehumidifier? One of the sunroof drains in the car got clogged with the result that the carpet and (very absorbent) foam under the driver's seat has soaked up an indeterminate amount of water. Rather than strip out the seats & interior to try and squeeze/mop it out, I'd rather use a dehumidifier in the car over the course of a night or two, but a lot are pricey enough, well in excess of a hundred notes - however this one looks like reasonable value at just £32. Anybody got any other recommendations before I hit the "Add to basket" button?

                            Be very very careful! A friend of mine, a classic car owner, told me a story once about a chap who used one in a Porsche after a leak. He overdid it, exactly how I don't know, and much of the trim of the interior shrank causing a world of heartache trying to put it right.

                            It may have been that the dash and trim were of leather, I'm not sure, but check and double check with someone knowledgeable before you go ahead.

                              Cheers Kavy, it is a leather interior alright so I'll bear that in mind. However it should be possible to do it slowly/gently enough with the machine I'm looking at using, maybe connecting it to a timer plug so it only does 2-3 hours at a time.
