Despise Tipping

Having worked in a pub for several of my formative years during uni and before as both bar staff and management I received tips on a irregular basis and when I did these had been earned - or it was Xmas/NY and drunk fools threw money at me as well as drinks. This experience has made me appreciate tips and due to this is hate tipping - well more accurately the expectation of it - I only tip someone when I have been WOWed (buzz word I know) .

I go out with some mates a lot and some of them insist on leaving a tip - I protest and refuse but then get treated like an old fuddy-duudy (I'm 28) - simply not on.

Euro watchdog to charge Microsoft on web browser choice boob

Mike Somers

EU should look into others

I think the EU should stop concentrating on M$ and perhaps look at Apple locking out their phone's system so you can;t change the default browser - yes you can install chrome but can you make it default ... nope. seems Apple are doing what the originally accused M$ of and no one is taking them to court. stinks!

Waterstone's whips out its pendulous dugs

Mike Somers

Has anyone else noticed .....

Don't know how many of you take notice in a drinking establishment such as Wetherspoons but their new uniform looks amazingly like Waterstones 'old' W - when I first saw it I thought I had wandered into the wrong place - that was before some busty wench gave me a generous amount of god's juice

Paris Hilton

Frenchman ....Swimming?

Surely said Frenchman must have been using the backstroke going to wrong way. Were the chips covered in garlic and cheese like most other food in France, also beer - they only know how to drink wine I thought

Paris because she likes going the wrong way with a back-stroke

Microsoft discloses 14,000 pages of coding secrets

Mike Somers

Prob on my own on this one

I personally think the EU should keep there over-paid worthless noses out of things. Thought this as the time - fining M$ just because Opera moaned that people don't use their browser if a joke. Plus I don't like the EU anyway

UK.gov will force paedophiles to register email addresses

Mike Somers

don't think this is going to be popular but here goes....

i agree with most of you it is absurd that the gov should be trying to collect email address like this, ref: free emails and such. as has already been pointed out isn't going to stop paedophiles and the like (also including family abuse sexual and violent) and releasing them from jail when they know they will re-offend is stupid. my personal view is that anyone who 'grooms' 'abuses' 'rapes' etc etc should be castrated.

@ Hunh

I agree. so they allow these films (nothing against them doing bringing them out) but yet they kick up a stink when a new 'violent' game comes out. think they need to get some perspective

but if ....

... they created themselves which in turn created them and lead to them being in existence then surely there would be no one to go back to create them and create a time mahcine in which to use to create yourself with .... oh no I've gone cross eyed
