Shands, it is obvious by your pic that you are a Connoisseur on such matters. You are of course entirely correct. Fairy cakes are a more subtle attempt at a handheld sized cake while cupcakes take it to another level. I have no doubt that fairycakes are more english than cupcakes but the two are very different and may they never meet.
Bovey, Cavey Cocker Fairycake queen just doesn't go. I need the C.


Thanks for the clarification Cavey. I do see myself as somewhat of a connoisseur, however others prefer to use the label 'greedy pig'. nomnommunchnomnom..

1) Trying to buy a new battery for my phone, only to have some spotty herbert try to flog me a new phone instead.

2) Not being able to distinguish between genuine Nokia phone batteries and dodgy counterfeits; particularly a problem when forced to buy on-line, because every where I go on the high street they don't stock batteries and insist on trying to flog me a new phone.

3) The people at Nokia who seem to be amazed that I want to buy a battery for a phone they no longer make and can't understand why I don't want to buy a new phone.

I have an 11 year old Nokia 3210 and have had to get a new battery a couple of times. Once I bought a generic battery which worked fine for a couple of months then went to shit. A couple of years ago I picked up a genuine Nokia battery for about a fiver off ebay and it's been brilliant ever since. I'd head for ebay if I were you.

Trouble is there's dozens of sellers on Ebay all claiming their batteries are genuine, but the feedback always has several people claiming to have been sold counterfeits. Guess I'll just have to take a plunge and hope for the best.

What battery are you after Milchy? I've got 5 old Nokia phones here that I never use - maybe 1's your phone type? Find a pic online of your model and I'll check. If it's a match you can have my battery for free.

Look at the pictures of the batteries and check for the Nokia hologram. The non nokia ones will work but might not be as good.

Very nice of you.
It's a BP 5M battery.

Milchy - I'll have to open all the phones to work out what that is - Could you put up a photo of the phone from a stock Google images shot and then I'll know?

If you happen to have a 3210 battery I'll gladly take that off your hands! Or the whole thing for spare parts.

No but in its life span it's been battered and bruised and savaged by a dog (complete with tooth marks) so it needs the odd new part on occasion!

That looks like one of the five phones. I'll need to wipe all the old data off it though.

Just take the sim card out and it should be clear. If not just stick any unimportant bits (case, battery, charger or whatever) in whenever you send some CDs next.

That looks like some kind of mutant robophone compared to mine!

A few weeks after I got it, I received a phone call from Orange to check I was happy with it. The woman seemed most put out that I didn't know about any of it's supposed special features and had only used it make and receive calls and texts. I only got it because the sim card thing I'd got wasn't compatible with my old £9.99 pay as you go model.

My phone was my 21st birthday present (I'm now 32) and it's been used ever since. People sometimes give their old phones but I've never liked any of them. This does everything I need. People were taking the piss out of how old it was 6 or 7 years ago! The Twin Towers were still standing when I got this!

That might as well be a food blender compared to the 5 I'm looking at. Do Nokia phones ever 'share' battery types or is that a common 90s scam ie you had to pay £20 each time for a new tweaked version?

There are a few others that take the same battery, but all are of the same vintage. Thanks anyway.

"The Woolworths Choir of 1979, 2012 - Elizabeth Price's winning entry in this year's Turner Prize - is an all-enveloping audio visual experience.

Rhythmic finger clicks and ritualistic hand-claps run through her winning work.

The sonorous effect is to unify an eclectic mix of archive footage and typed comment that plays on multiple meanings of the word 'Choir'.

It is a moving, haunting and disturbing installation that - in my opinion - is a worthy winner of this prestigious prize."


Fucking cock.
