Glad I'm not the only person who feels like they're pretending to be a zombie to blend in in there!

Lack of info.
I work on a service desk, so it's all too familiar for me.
One of the more common things we get are users saying 'I can't get into program X', and actually it turns out they can't get into their computer at all! They only see the computer as email, or word processor, or device for sending on 'hilarious' pictures of fluffy kittens and such.
What are license fees for?
What everyone seems to be forgetting is that the BBC is a bit different from Youtube etc, as you have to pay their TV tax even if you never watch any of the BBC channels.
Yeah, the ISPs have screwed up by lying to us and failing to invest, but since the iPlayer site doesn't ask you to enter your TV license number every time you want to watch something, those of us with TVs are funding those who have no TV and just use iPlayer instead.
I think the ISPs should get some money from the beeb, especially if it means there's less gardening shows and more Dr Who repeats on their channels...
Tux, cos he's sad at the lack of iPlayer support for Linux...
