I've been using my Giga T Pro II for some time now and been very happy with it but have always wanted to find a decent light-beam trigger as well.

Has anyone got any experience of this Pluto device, good or bad?

He floated like a butterfly and stung like a bee and was an inspiration to all but Muhammad Ali has finally lost his longest fight. :(

Football and alcohol managed to distract me yesterday from wishing James Phillip Newlyn a happy 50th B'Day, wherever he may be...

Last heard of as a vinyl junkie and hosting various raves, If you know him, then please help me contact him.

Story
Tagline
An altruistic empath with a love of photography and nature.
Introduction
Born in Portchester, went to Manor House, Castle Junior and Portchester Community School.

Went to Cornwall School, Dortmund for A-levels, worked at Haslar, then for John Brown and lastly EMC Computers (UK) Ltd.

Becoming infatuated with G+ and photography and have been snapping with Minolta SLRs since I was 10. Usually nature, often birdlife, sunsets, all flora and fauna and now wanting to expand my horizons into macro, portrait and street photography. 

Looking for a good lottery win to release my spirit (or a generous benefactor!)

Absolutely deplorable sales experience. Throughout the process, deals, promises and expectations changed for the worse until my Daughter ended up paying over £60/month more for her car than intended. As she is a student with little credit record,I was told that I would have to act as guarantor, so, after my bank details were taken over the phone, I went in and signed the documents. It turns out that GMAC finance do not offer a guarantor service and what I actually signed was a joint finance application. Despite me checking several times that nothing would appear on my credit record as I was also looking to finance a new car in the very near future, I now have a £12000 debt and will be unlikely to finance anything for myself because of these out and out lies. Even when picking the car up, they conveniently forgot about the promises of a free, first service and tank of petrol. Now looking at legal representation and will do everything in my power to ensure that the Sales Controller is reprimanded or fired. Disgraceful and deplorable behaviour and will definitely NEVER give them any business in the future. BUYER BEWARE. UPDATE, 18-Oct-15: The General Manager of Fareham did indeed contact me and looked into my claims of the blatant misrepresentation and lies of the Sales Controller, Callum Richards, who said that he couldn't remember exactly what wording was used. I assured him that if it I had been told that I was entering into a joint application and not simply acting as a guarantor, we would not have proceeded with the sale. At the end of the day it is my own fault for believing that I was speaking to a decent, honest Human being and for not reading the pre-prepared forms that were thrust in front of me to sign. The Dealership have offered to 'reset' our position by taking back the car and cancelling the finance, however I am certain that there will be some costly caveats and my daughter and my credit records will still be ruined for months and no doubt exclude me from taking up an excellent offer on a new car.

I felt compelled to write a review to counter Poppy's appalling one as I have been using this establishment for well over 20 years now and have never had nor seen an experience such as the one that was described. The atmosphere is always friendly and the whole shop behave as one big family, with many young employees learning their trade and going on to have successful careers or starting their own businesses. There is a core backbone of excellent hairdressers/barbers that have happily been there for many years and the waiting room is often well stocked with people waiting for their favourite, although all are equally capable. My entire family have been regular Customers and both my kids had their first haircuts here, accompanied by a lollypop reward afterwards. My little lad (now 17) has had a range of styles from mock-mohawks and close shaved crops to careful preservation of his now precious fringe. So, in summary, if you want a technically challenging, fancy style, ask them and I am sure they will give you their honest opinion and know their own limits and will advise accordingly. If you want a good, honest, family hairdressers to suit the entire family, go to PJ's and I don't think you will be disappointed. Just ask the generations of families and loyal customers that return week after week, year after year.

Not really a review but I have just found a letter that I wrote in 1978 when staying over on a school trip - Glad to see that you are still doing a fantastic job this many years on. Some great memories! :)
