XBOX ONE IN GAME CHAT PROBLEMS


I am not alone. I made this post because Microsoft are seemingly refusing to look at the issue with their chat.
I play battlefield 1 and it’s a big annoyance that I can’t chat to my squad. So this post will develop but here is a sample complaint and the whole thread.

I’ve had the same problem for well over a year now and I’ve tried everything to fix it but absolutely nothing works. I’ve gotten a new headset, adapter and even a new Xbox but still it doesn’t work and it’s so f***ing frustrating. No YT video helps and no comment on any sort of website helps either. Please please if you have had this problem and somehow managed to fix it please share it would be greatly appreciated by me and the little small group of other people who have had this problem. Microsoft don’t seem to care either about this fairly serious problem which is also worrying”

Please take a look at this microsoft!

CMS Complaints


Here is a list of emails in handy batch sizes so you send the same email but in smaller amounts. Make sure you copy your MP in and state clearly your complaint.

If you are an official looking at this page then please not that people coming here are made desperate for help and so we try and get a system to fight for our children. Despite having a notion that the CSA and CMS are helping, often the reverse is happening and one day I can see a retrospective damages day as evidence comes about that you have actually inadvertently separated parents from their children. Just because a ‘body’ is governmental does not mean that they are following the law.

The law takes the view that it is every child’s right to access each parent.

Remington Beard Boss Review


Remington Beard Boss Review

This is the UK based model number MB4120 as in the US there are different models using the beard boss sub branding. Excellent name that!

The Remington Beard Boss is a great shaver. Style reviews tested a whole bunch and you can spend around $70 and still have the issue that is an under powered shaver. Well maybe they decided to just throw some disposable batteries in there and be done. Many need charging cables and we are getting annoyed at never finding one when you need it. So some product designers offer charging trays but they are not exactly portable so indeed the disposable battery could well be this shavers main selling point. But it isn’t the only one!

The trimmer features:

This has a naked (no comb spacer) shaver option to take all hair off- very handy for doing the neck line or no ‘haireas’!

An adjustable fixed comb. It is a negative to have separate pieces, the adjustable comb has a lock and when unlocked has a nice ergonomic click between settings allowing for the perfect trim length no matter who you are.

The power of the trimmer is very good. I have pretty thick hair and it takes it clean off.

Serrated cutting teeth, maybe this is the reason the shaver performs so well.

You can check it out on amazon here
