    Have started.

    Had my first one today- please subscribe etc.

    Anyone know what the take-up has been since launch? I’m using ATR site myself since they began charging.

    ATR, SL & IR fill the gaps for me and I’d imagine the traffic reduction will see their advertising become less valuable, still, I’m sure they’ve done their sums…

    During this past recession we’ve had new publications, bookmakers & exchanges, racecourses and now this – it may not be linked but if it follows the same road as the others it will be a shame.

    I had four (all different) on the day the Members’ Club launched, but have blocked the address now to ensure I don’t receive any more.

    I’m not sure what your getting at. But I think its being charged for picks is that true.

    I hope the paper survives. The website, as I am sure has been well said on here, was buggered up ages ago. I didin’t use their site when it was free so I won’t be paying for it…

    Hi guys
    Are there any other free web sites that show the winners of the last ten years or more just like the R/Post use to before it brought in these ridiculous fees its just pure greed. :roll:

    But you missed out the best bit:

    *Based on a loaf of Hovis Wholemeal Thick 800g from Sainsbury’s (£1.24) – June 09.
    Members’ Club price is based on a monthly subscription of £7.50 divided by the average
    number of days in a month (30.43 days).

    Personally I wouldn’t give Hovis to my ducks. The bread eaten in the Pinza household costs considerably more than that and is infinitely nicer. Spelt, Focaccia and Ciabatta preferred. Sorry RP, you can keep your Wholemeal Thick.

    Yes I’ve had the email too. I think it was a very apt comparison – after all, I very rarely eat bread now….

    On the subject of change……..stuff the RP by the way, no way would I pay to look at form, videos yes but not bare form.

    I don’t always get the best of connections so sometimes I won’t watch racing live as I get annoyed with the stop and start . What I do instead
    is download the race then watch it.

    I do it strictly for personal use but in the last week I found the grab++ in Orbit no longer works on RUK but is still ok on ATR.

    Have RUK now blocked it somehow to stop people downloading races?

    Hi Fist, long time no see. Not sure if this is any use or will work for your needs but I use a free trial software called Keep Video to capture my Youtube vids. and also free, Replay Converter. The two combined give me perfect playback.

    Useless piece of information, but given to me, in good faith by the Arkwright who runs our local corner shop.

    What is the difference, in number of slices, between a "THICK" sliced and a "MEDIUM" sliced standard supermarket loaf?

    Well?

    OK- it’s one measly slice less in a THICK loaf than in a MEDIUM.

    Go check it out.

    Crusts don’t count :lol:
