Vinyl solutions?

I need to get rid of my collection of vinyl records - approx. ten feet-worth of LPs, 12"s and box-sets. But now Beanos is going out of business, where else in London or south-east England will buy them - and is that my best option? [more inside]

In the UK, what's the usual redundancy payment?

I was recently made redundant from a job I'd worked at for 3½ years. Under UK law then, I was due a redundancy payoff of three times my weekly wage, up to a maximum of £290 weekly wage. From my reading though, an employer could be generous and pay three times the actual wage if it was over £290 - and I'd swear this was what happened the other time I was made redundant. But what experiences have others had? [more inside]

U.K. Christmas

As a child, I was an American expat, growing up in Scotland. This time of year I have many fond memories of Christmas Pantomines, Christmas Pudding, Paper Crowns & Crackers, 'Cadbury's Christmas Selection Boxes,' etc.' I also remember getting copies of year-end "annuals," particularly the 'Beano Annual' and the 'Blue Peter Annual.' There were many others, but I am at a loss for remembering their titles. What are/were some of the others published at Christmastime?

Will an Australian Wii work in the UK and with UK games?

Hi, I am working in Australia for the next month, before going home to the UK, and then most likely moving out to Australia again in a few months for good. I would like to buy a Wii and get going on Zelda, but am struggling to find out if it will work back in the UK and with UK games. So far I know that: 1) Australia runs on similar voltage to UK, so no issues there 2) Australia and the UK are both PAL, so no issues there No-one over here seems to know anything about this - are the two countries in different 'Wii regions' (they are different for DVDs). Thanks Chris

How to set up a US Dollar account from the UK?

Like many UK people, I earn some money in dollars: Adsense and Cafepress mostly. Whilst the exchange rate is poor, it would make a sense to leave this money in the US and only collect, as and when the rate changes significantly in my favour. Any one got any experience with a UK based person setting up US dollar savings account with good interest?

I need a birthday cake (in London)!

I need a birthday cake for Friday (Sat morning at the latest). Doesn't have to be anything exciting, just something that can feed about 20 people, and says 'Happy Birthday' on it. I live in London - where on earth would I go to get such a thing? I guess I could try large supermarkets, but there aren't many in central London, and it would be nice to get something 'handmade', by a decent bakery. All suggestions gratefully recieved!

New laptop for an Internet novice

UK Mefites.. I have around £500 to spend on a laptop, to help my GF become internet capable. Nothing fancy required, as it'll be pretty much internet & e-mail only. Wireless is one requirement, decent sized screen another. Any recommendations, or any that I should avoid at all costs.
