Use Google Powered or Google itself, the rest is useless

Also do not forget to comment on threads which you think are interesting.
Than a quick "curley fridge cupboards site:englishforum.ch" on Google will give what you need. Only works if you have a distinct username which is normally not used for something else . Even better when you have a world wide distinct user name I can even drop the site:englishforum.ch part and I am still able to find my EF stuff with Google.
Me too.

Google ain't that great at it though. It only finds 14,600 results for me - I have over 17,000 posts here alone, never mind elsewhere on the net.

Selber schuld.

The amazingly expensive Sprungli bought ones also disappeared quickly. So, having eaten them, my daughter and partner have now spent a weekend making better - tradition.

This is the first year that they realise that they need to clean-up their own kitchen before hosting Christmas evening...

Re: The First World Problem Thread

A flight I just took has credited to the wrong frequent traveller programme, even though I got it changed specifically at the airport.

Now it's going to take me weeks to get it reversed and re-credited to the correct programme.
