    Curious - Windows 11 rollout

    You're doing a fantastic job, but isn't all tech when you think about it a "temporary fix"? They'll always be something new, some upgrade that eventually becomes the norm that we all need.

    Curious - Windows 11 rollout

    I discovered TPM last week thanks to Windows Update - took about 30 minutes of Googling, but I managed to enable it on my Dell laptop which is about 4 years old. However they'll be millions of people who don't feel confident enough to be able to go into the BIOS to change it. 4 years is a...

    Stafford shops closing - Turning into a ghost town?

    Did anyone see the documentary on Poundstretcher, where they brought in the man who set up/owned Poundworld before its collapse to improve their stores? It just looked like they were making it up as they went along - and then, decided to sack the man brought in once they'd got his knowledge...

    Stafford shops closing - Turning into a ghost town?

    Such a bad decision to move to this location - no idea why they thought it would be better than Queensville! You'd have to assume the rent offer was cheaper and they didn't want to compete with B&M.

    Guildhall closure?

    The old M&S would be good, but probably a bit TOO big for them - although, they could then expand their clothing offering.

    Stafford shops closing - Turning into a ghost town?

    Really disappointing news this one - nothing else like it in town. We always say the town needs small, independent businesses.

    Guildhall closure?

    Stafford simply doesn't need both the Guildhall & the Riverside development. There's no need for this to cause any job losses, there is plenty of other empty retail spaces the businesses within the Guildhall could move into...'cept in these times, the companies involved will probably cut their...

    Gatehouse Theatre.

    We're off to see "Spirit of the Dance" tonight, but it has been a while since I've visited Stafford of an evening. Where's best to park nowadays for the Gatehouse?

    Kitchen Wall Sealant (Oil/Sealant etc.).

    We had a new kitchen in May, walls plastered and tiles fitted. When the tiles were fitted they needed a little re-adjustment. I suspect when the kitchen fitter was refitting the tiles, he was wiping his fingers on the (at the time) unpainted walls to remove the grout/silicone. Now several...

    Stafford shops opening - Turning into a boom town?

    I don't know why Timpsons is lauded so much as an exemplar company, they haven't got a clue! Bought Sketchleys/Mister Minit, closed down the branch inside Sainsburys Stafford and sold off Sketchleys to Johnsons ... and now years later they are reversing all of the decisnow ions, have bought...
