  1. Condor Ferries - Website

    So is this a ferry service or a "high street shop". First thing I see is adverts for buying stuff???
  2. New cruise Ferry Line to New York ?

    I flew into NY a couple of years ago, and it took a good few hours to get out of the Airport - could you imagine how long it would take to get out a port in America? Would probably make the queues in Dover look short.
  3. Storage space on a tablet

    Hi, I know there is a few techy people on here, so hoping someone may have a solution (though I feel there may not be an answer). My tablet is coming up with a warning about not having the latest updates to Win10. However it says I do not have enough space, I require 8 GB. Now my tablet only has 32 GB memory, and I don;t have anything stored on it, and even after cleans and looking for anything I may be able to delete, I have the grand sum of... 2 and a bit GB. Anyone got any advice on how to essentially magic 6 GB from thin air? Seems most of the Memory is used just for Windows (Just had a look and the Windows folder has over either 20.6 GB or 14.8 GB - bigger number is "size", smaller is "size on disc" ). Any ideas/advice greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Wightlink port redevelopment & new G class

    The last I heard was one was being kept for relief and one sold. Not sure of this is the case still, as they don;t seem bothered about sending a Wight back, so Clare and Victoria, with a back up Wight Class?

  7. New cowes floating bridge

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-hampshire-42559274/the-isle-of-wight-s-new-chain-ferry-has-struggled-to-dock It looks like its taking nearly as long to dock as it does to cross.Perhaps the answer maybe to have guide rails rather then the bumper pole. Looks like she is taking quite a bit of damage judging from the dent.
  8. Wind Solution.

    Has the work on Rampion finished? See the Wind Solution has moved to Portland now. Before that she popped into Southampton before Christmas.

    QHM has the Arrow in and out tomorrow morning, so possibly as Cabin-boy said, a extra freight run to the CI?
  14. DFDS SEAWAYS: News & Updates

    Is the fact that no one has stepped in proof that the route cannot be profitable then? Shame as I would love a route to Norway
