Re: Agile is OK for ...
This is a common misconception - agile doesn't mean "no design" or "no planning", you should be doing that regardless of the size of your project.

I haven't bought a TV license for over 3 years now and don't watch any TV (live/catch-up or whatever). For the same price I get a Netflix and Amazon Prime subscription with some change left over. Much better value for money.
I haven't had too much trouble with Crapita, although they really don't understand what "We won't ask you again for 2 years" means. I've constantly re-establishing with them that "No, I don't need a license".
1. Be a hard disk manufacturer.
2. Open a trading desk.
3. Control supply by stopping/starting production.
4. Buy/Sell options/futures.
5. Treat traders like rockstars.
6. Mark to market accounting.
7. Get employees to invest in own company (optional).
What could go wrong? ;)
People don't just whip out their laptop on a bus or the tube to watch a movie, it's just unpractical. It'll always been on longer train rides or planes where you can set it up comfortably and don't mind waiting 20 seconds for windows to boot. It would be better using the budget and space to provide a bigger, longer lasting battery.

>> "Spoil your ballet paper on election day. It's the only way to ensure none of the incompetent >> idiots get in."
> Errm, no, it's one good way to make sure your vote won't count! If you're just going to spoil your ballot paper, why bother going out to vote? Either way, the outcome will be the same.
The point of spoiling your ballot paper is that every spoilt vote is count and acts as a vote of no confidence in British politics
As soon as the enterprise apps and support come out for the iPhone the Blackberry is going to be firmly seated in 2nd place.
The only real advantage that it can maintain is the physical keyboard but seeing as most people only tap out quick yes/no replies on the road this amounts to very little.
I suspect you're just trolling though and any apple product is a target :(
Or we could just you know not spend money on anything, no police, no NHS, no governance, no international aid... oh I could go on. Then we could all have fibre our our arses because it's clearly the most important thing we need. I just can't stand youtube taking 1 minute to load a video.
It sounds like IT contracting firms need to learn from Railway contracting firms.
1. Offer to supply services at massively reduced prices to undercut competitors and win contracts.
2. Once contracts are signed re-negogiate contract and take government for as much money as possible.
Or maybe it's the government that has learnt from this.
Oh sorry wrong site for that.
Am I in the minority when I say I've never had a problem with BT? I can also say I've always spoken to someone with an english accent, within 2-3 minutes of calling and always had a fast resolution of any issue.
Moved in to a new house, phone sockets weren't working. Next day engineer comes out and fixes phone and rewires it to a more convenient position (free). Day after that engineer comes back to install longer lasting cable while being chastised by his manager (because the cable he used only lasted 50 years and not 75 years and they wanted to avoid engineer call outs in the future... go figure).
But the point is everything has been fixed.
The only time I've had better service is with LLU broandband in the old days when they used to take the whole line and not just the data part. The t'internet was running a bit slow so I decided to call Easynet up. Within *one* minute of calling they'd agreed to send an engineer to the exchange and less than two hours later they'd fixed the hardware down there (some other engineer had unplugged some of their kit).
