Perhaps we could use this thread for various requests - odd questions answered etc. like m.'s 'shambles' qu. - but anyhow,

does anyone here speak/write Dutch? And who could translate a bit of Dutch for me?

No to Dutch, but has a Dutch to English translator. Not the best, I know, but it should give the general flavour of the text.

Re: Requesting...
Erk! Possibly the text I've got is Flemish and not Dutch, or 'olde Dutche'. Thanks though.

Thanks for setting this up, Col!

OK, does anyone here have NTL and a DVD Recorder?

Re: Requesting...
What's NTL?

Re: Requesting...
You may know it as Telewest? It's a (cable) TV provider.

Can't help, amn. I have four analogue channels and not even a video recorder (I gave mine to my parents when theirs gave up the ghost). Are you seeking SCART connection advice?

What does NTL stand for anyway? And don't say "Technology. Tamed."

Re: Requesting...
NTL's saving grace is a neat little thing called On Demand, which allows you to queue up programmes you might have missed (so for instance, I caught the first ten minutes of Saxondale, which I'd missed last night, this morning).

Each of the BBC channels offers up half a dozen best or most-watched progs every week.

Anyhoo, there's a BBC4 thing I'd love to record for a friend of mine who's not about at the mo' and by the time they are, I expect it'll have vanished. I don't have a DVD-R (or VCR for that matter) or I'd just do it meself.

NTL stands for Not Terribly Likeable, but this is OK.

Re: Requesting...

I studied Dutch many moons ago. I'm not promising anything but send me your text and I'll see if I can do something.

Re: Requesting...
Oh thank you - I'll send you a chunk of it tomorrow.
