Going out for a meal tonight? Then check out this!

Food Hygiene Rating Scheme logoIf you are going out for a meal tonight in the UK. You will want to check out this page and see what food hygiene rating the place has got! The URL you will need is ratings.food.gov.uk.

It will tell you, want rating the business has out of 5. With 5 being the best.

The worrying thing is, that lots of the places I eat at, only have a 2 or 3 star rating. Which is not good at all :(.

They also do mobile apps, if you want to check the rating of a place while you are out!

Humax Foxsat HDR hard drive failed

Oh dear, oh dear. I have had my Humax Foxsat HDR since 28 Dec 2009. So I guess the hard drive has done well. At the time of getting it, a 320 GB hard drive in a PVR (personal video recorder) was seen has big. When I first got it. It only had one full time HD channel and that was BBC HD. Now it’s got BBC1 HD, BBC HD, ITV HD, Channel 4, RT HD and NHK World HD.

So the hard drive does soon fill up. When recording HD stuff. I only know, well hope it’s the hard drive that died. After reading about it on the Internet. The box started to reboot it’s self for no reason at all. It’s been doing that for a number of weeks. It gone to point, you would turn it on and it would just reboot it’s self.

Then yesterday I turned it on and it reformatted the hard drive. So pissed me off to say the least. I have now lost, years and years of TV programmes I wanted to keep. Also ones I had not gotten around to seeing.

So I have now unplugged the hard. See photo before, with it’s top off. That’s stopped the rebooting. Just means I can’t record anything with it :(.

Inside humax foxsat hdr

So today I have ordered a new 1TB hard drive for it. Which I do really hope fixes it. If not I have spent a lot on a new hard drive for no reason at all!!

Once I know, if it’s fixed it. I will post another update!! 🙂 Wish me wish!!

BBC Two HD launches 26th March 2013

BBC Two HDThe BBC has announced that the HD simulcast of BBC Two will launch just before Easter, on 26th March 2013.

BBC Two HD will replace the existing BBC HD Channel and will be available subscription-free on all digital television platforms offering HD channels.

The BBC Two HD channel will be a simulcast network version of the BBC Two schedule. Meaning that if you live in Scotland for example and want to watch Newsnight Scotland, you will have to tune back to BBC Two Scotland in SD.

I must say, I am not best pleased they are closed down BBC HD. Now where are they going to show content from BBC Three and BBC Four in HD?

Another day, yet another good cycle. I have no idea how I did this. I did 33.76 miles yesterday. Did a different route today and did the same distance (33.76 miles).
