    This was probably confusing it was 4 metres of new fence and then 3 metres of wall that needed trellis on top- still a good price imo

    Can anyone recommend a carpenter to replace some internal doors and sort out door frames please? Maybe a banister or two.

    So I think there might be a problem with the box above my door, the cable that runs from there to the phone master socket or the master socket. Anyone recommend a freelance phone engineer?
    sparkybird is this sort of thing covered by general electricians?

    quimcunx it'll be cheaper to get it done by a sparks, might just be a loose connection or damage to the cable that runs between the two points.
    I'm out of action for another month and a half though

    What have you done to yourself?

    Can I have a go myself? :D :hmm: I managed that bulb socket thingy.

    Can you take the cover off the box? If you can see a loose connection maybe you can fix it yourself. There's nothing high powered running through phone cables so you probably won't electrocute yourself. Too much.

    Oh, I already did this but couldn't see anything. My houseguest is often seen to be rolling his eyes at me fiddling about with electricity. It's turned into a bit of a hobby. I don't even think that it is a problem with the wire but me and Damian at Zen are at our collective wits end. I'm not going to bother being proactive ever again. Things were better when I stuck with Talk talk knowing they are terrible.

    Have you done the same to the master socket? I think when you take the cover off, inside there's a "test socket" that you can try plugging into. Or something.

    Not in my instance, that I noticed. My socket has a little trumpeting BT man from the 90s on it. The other little box, above the door, is older than that I think, as is the cable.

    Hi All

    I am after someone to plaster my living room ceiling. No artex or anything should be very straightforward. Does anyone know of anyone decent?

    Thanks

    I am looking for a portrait photographer in Tulse Hill / West Norwood / Brixton. Just to do a quick head and shoulders shot and send me the jpeg. Does anyone know anyone?

    xsunnysuex - I think the dry cleaners on Acre Lane just opposite the old Town Hall can do same day - on the same parade as Bamboula, Traid, Banks Opticians etc.
