Business from Football but Nowhere to Park

Find in General January 31st, 2007 - 4,488 views

I should consider the location of my premises as quite fortunate. At least twice a month a mass exodus of avid football supporters pass by my window twice.

Following on from a previous post about BT broadband it seems as if the problem is getting worse. Emails are not being delivered across the nation and beyond…!

Yes that’s right, Kwik-Fit can now insure your home! Kwik-Fit have been providing car insurance for a while now and they have recently moved into home insurance.

Find in Business Costs January 25th, 2007 - 4,796 views

So junk faxes are farily inevitable and there only seems to be one logical way of saving at least half of the paper they usually waste. Just turn them over and out them back in the printer/fax machine and when you want to print something yourself, put in a fresh piece.

I have BT broadband for business and recently I found certain emails were not being delivered.
