EU to ban the patio heaters that ate the planet. Not.

Heating patios with no-one on them... smokers outsdie...

Considering most people drag their patio heater out only a dozen or so occasions throughout the year - I really think the notion that we are destroying our planet with these is rather silly....

I wonder how much gas is burned off on rigs / gas extraction - in comparison to that being used to keep me and my guests warm on a summer evening...?

Anyway - its pubs using 3 or 4 gas heaters outside their pub for smokers that annoys me. Not that I think smokers should be cold - but that the heaters seem to be on all night - regardless of whether or not any smokers are sat under them... surely this increases the cost of my pint? - let alone the damage that its causing....

Man uses mobe as modem, rings up £27k phone bill

Vodafone are a complete Rip-Off - T-Mobile - very hard to beat

I ditched Vodafone last year, as they cannot offer any kind of competitive deal against T-Mobile. I regularly use my phone as a modem - and most often at speeds of 1- 1.8 Mbit (on HSDPA). An absolutely fab service from T-Mobile. With calls and texts - my bill is almost never over £50 per month......

Unlimited should mean unlimited - I'm shocked that operators can use that terminology and as one commenter mentions - restrict that to 200Mb ???

Q.

Two UK web hosts go down

Steven

1 and 1 email servers (exchange) still down at 17:30

1 and 1 are usually very reliable - so this is unusual for them.

Learning to Ride

It took me a few weeks when I was a kid to learn how to ride a bike. If I knew you could ride one like this - It would have been much easier.....
