I went to Timpsons. For a very reasonable £10 they provide a USB stick with your pictures on, 4 hard copy pictures plus they have the picture checked on the Govt website to confirm that it is OK and provide a code to put in instead of uploading. Really good service.
Or try a"passport compliant" digital photobooth. It takes your piccy, checks it's compliant, and makes it available to upload into your digital application form (via an upload code). You dont need a data stick - or hard copies, although it does give you some.

As good a place as any to post this
28 days start to finish to get passport renewed, from 6000 miles away (inc sending old one, p/work etc) Got new one in my hand an hour ago

Media were saying last month there's a 10 week delay, not counting overseas :unsure:

Now if only I could travel anywhere.....
Wife’s took 24 days. Splitting hairs I know but in the middle of the holiday season, cracking result.

Bit of a shock when I realised I had the same t-shirt/open shirt ensemble on today as Mr Joel had all those years ago. Still gladdened my heart - timeless fashion statement? :unsure:
I can just about get away with saying "Uptown Girl" was in my youth.

Oldest boy was struggling with his golf and the club got him a half hour lesson with the pro.
What a difference, absolutely smashing them, seems a lot more natural for him now.
He's only 10 but amazing how quick his confidence has come back.

Oooh, that’s really nice
Thanks. Have to say that they are probably the best looking and sounding speakers that I have built to date.

Once the isolation plinths go on them they will sound brilliant. Very balanced across the frequencies with crossovers that only just fit in the cabinet, they are that big. My first attempt at bi-wiring the crossovers as well.
