If you're in the market for a new duster to do a bit of light spring cleaning we'd advise you to nip out to your nearest hardware shop rather than pop down to the UK ecommerce tentacle of retail monolith Woolworths, where a search query for this most innocent of household items returns a nasty shock for innocent inhabitants of …

    How much?

    Cheap at half the price, as a twice married man i can tell you it costs more than that in the long run.

    At least it's spelt correctly

    At my local Woolies the staff print up signs for special offers and so on. Or should I say "sign's for special offer's and so on". They cannot get apostrophe usage right, and there are nice A4 sheets on their store-front proclaiming (assuming formatting works out as I write it):

    Stock Now Great

    I'm tempted to go in and order that CD in store though.

    All better now... oops.

    Well it appears that the folks at Woolworths got right on it. If you click on the link from the search results page it says "Sorry the page or product you are looking for could not be found..."

    I feel much better now :P

    Paris? Need you ask?

    Any connection to Ken Dodd, tickling sticks, tickling of beavers, with or without the use of diddy men is purely coincidental.

    Misread that one...

    You know you're too big a computer geek when you read the title of this story as "Need a new Cluster? Avoid Woolies".

    And its gone...

    Seems El Reg linking to a website mistake speeds up its removal.

    Paris because she... never mind

    @Jacob Reid

    El Reg is indeed an effective force in many areas. But we really must avoid giving the government ideas. If someone gets the idea that the Reg can 'speed up removal' of mistakes on the net then they'll be given a juicy contract in no time flat with luncheon vouchers to boot.

    All we readers will be left with is the articles about IT.

    Multi-function spray nozzle

    I once saw a new attachment for a hosepipe being offered for sale at a major DIY store which had sign above a basket of the product - a multi-function spray nozzle. Printed In letters a few inches high, the word began F and ended in ION, but the letters in between were transposed...

    A shame, its been 'pulled off' the site now.

    No matter, such family favourites still remain, such as "Fisting the Dead".


    They should have left it up there, I'd have bought it.

    New in at number 1 - Fisting the Dead

    This guy should name Ubuntu releases, Fisting the Dead is far catchier than Dapper Drake.

    I dunno, We will see what happens when they get a chance to name a release Orange Orangutan (A.K.A. the librarian edition).
