Hard Rock Monday in June

Could someone see if Monday 13th is free in the evening, please? If it is free, could you put HRM in from 7 until 1 (or as late as we can easily go)? If there is a film that night, can it be postponed? Everyone seems to want a HRM, and it has to be a Monday really. Do we know who will be KMing that ...

I tried the cafe kiosk computer, and it wanted a username and password to get past 192.168.11.1. Is it supposed to do that?

Re: room booking URL

It probably makes sense for the different facilities to have different pages on blog.thforest.org.uk, as the initiation process is different for each facility. From these pages, they can all link to the same booking system, but using different URLs, to future-proof themselves. While they are using t...

Is it repairable? They are expensive, but isn't that partly due to them being made to be repairable?

None of the Magimixes at Nisbets have a commercial warranty either. Is that a factor?
