  • Is it possible to find out how much a director of a UK limited company earns?

    That's the essence of my question. Is this information available anywhere? I'm thinking of Companies House or similar but without any knowledge of how to go about it.

  • How do you make people think when they're doing a repetitive checksheet?

    At work the final step in the product I build is to do a checksheet to make sure the product works correctly and the serial numbers of all the parts are recorded correctly. These questions are things that I think I already know are correct so they're difficult to look at with fresh eyes. If I've misread a serial number twice already chances... show more
    At work the final step in the product I build is to do a checksheet to make sure the product works correctly and the serial numbers of all the parts are recorded correctly. These questions are things that I think I already know are correct so they're difficult to look at with fresh eyes. If I've misread a serial number twice already chances are I will do so again as I'm used to seeing the correct number being recorded. In short it's difficult to check your own work. If I can I get someone else to check my work as it's fresh to them and they get a certain satisfaction from catching me out but that's not always possible. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make yourself think about repetitive questions.

    My 52 registered N16 model Nissan Almera keeps going into limp mode, there's no rhyme or reason to when and for the most it will reset when you turn the ignition off and on again but sometimes it stubbornly won't. I've had the RAC check it with both generic and Nissan diagnostics but some of the software is hidden from all but main dealers. A garage decided that it had to be the accelerator pedal and replaced it at my expense to no avail. Now they've decided it's some switches on the power steering and are awaiting the delivery of the switches but straws are being clutched at at my expense. The fault codes seem to be inconclusive and they've since been reset by mechanics but no real answers. Does anyone have any good ideas?

    I use a Huawei E5830, MiFi dongle on 3. Normally I have it set to no security as I sometimes connect an older Archos device that can't deal with the security settings, or more likely I just haven't the patience to figure out what all the initials mean. Until the other day I had no problems but after going through 5 Gig in 4 days without downloading anything I suspected someone else was piggybacking and since I only get 15Gig for the month I had to engage the security. Now I can only get at best 120kb/s and that's in bursts, 52 was the speed for most of the test. Does engaging security slow things down?

For some reason I thought it may have been Spem in Alium by Thomas Tallis but I now don't think so. Is it perhaps an urban myth that has built up over the years? Does anyone know the story?

    I used to use a Acer compact desktop with XP, the version isn't mentioned on the opening page but it's a budget machine so Home/ Basic would be my guess, using an AMD X2. I live in a house of multiple occupancy and there was always problems connecting Vista and XP machines but it was my connection so XP it was. Looking back it might have been a different router with another network provider then, I'm on BT Home Hub now but it used to be Orange/ Freeview. Eventually the XP machine broke so I bought an Acer 5735 using a Core 2 Duo and running Vista Basic. I just brought it home, plugged it in and off it went, no problems at all. As well as all this I have an Archos PMA430 which runs on a Linux distribution and that always worked fine. Today I got on with fixing the old XP machine and got it going again, a tough fit on a memory card and eagerly connected it. Thing is it just wouldn't connect. I disabled the network card on the new Vista machine and it appeared to got on with things, the little globe appeared in the task bar and all seemed well but I couldn't open a web page. Windows Live Messenger thought it was a gateway issue, could anyone give me any ideas?
