I spent 2 hours trying to figure out hy I was getting no sound from my pc, it wasn't till I remembered that I swapped the plug for the speakers for the one to re-charge the battery on my mobile phone that the penny dropped! Sad or what!
My partner wanted to call Sky about our TV, and asked me dial the number for him. I dialled it and when they answered passed the phone... He spent ages giving them our info and they said we have no records for you. Then he said he mentioned the Sky card and the lady said "Sir, this is NTL".
