Rip Off Republic - Coffee Culture

| | Comments (0)

TIPPINST - Paid a visit to a new Cafe in clonmel. Was charged 5.70 for the following

1 espresso 1.95
2 slices of brown bread and marmalade 1.75
1 large sausuage roll 2.00
Total 5.70

A realistic price for the above in my opinion would be the following

1 espresso 1.55
2 slices of brown bread and marmalade 1.25
1 large sausuage roll 1.20
Total 4.00

A saving of 1.70, I might have even had a second espresso.
But these rip off prices are an immediate turn off and will stop me going back for a second experience. I know there are rates etc to consider but the profit margins on coffee are already pretty good. It only costs 5 euro for 1/2 1b bag of italian espresso beans.

There is no systemic issue with Xbox 360


TIPPINST - Thats the official line from Microsoft. They go on to say that " Each incident is unique and these customer enquiries are being handled on a case-by-case basis."

However users have discovered that the new Xbox 360 that launched last week in the USA may have PSU overheating problems.

How to remove the excel macro warning message

| | Comments (0)

TIPPINST - An annoying feature of excel is the macro warning message that can pop up even when the macros have been removed. If a user accidently brings up the visual basic editor this can also result in a macro warning message appearing the next time even there are no macros.

A solution to this is to save the excel file to a lower format such as 95 - 97 open this new file and save it back to the original format

Time to retune your satellite receiver

TIPPINST - ITV launched their channels yesterday onto satellite Free to Air. This means that if you have an aldi/lidl dish you can tune in ITV 1,2,3 and 4. ITV 4 is currently being hosted on the Men and Motors channel until Nov 7th due to some technical hitches.
