New answerphone - on my old answerphone I had recorded my own greeting. This mostly resulted in the scum leaving some sort of message.
On the new machine (can I say Panasonic) there is a pre-recorded greeting by a nice sounding and apparently very well known young lady. Most of the sh1tbags seem to know it and rarely get beyond her first few words before hanging up.
Of course, anything not recognised on the caller display is left for my electronic ladyfriend to deal with.
We just ignore any calls with number withheld and let the answerphone handle it.
On the old system I had recorded my own answering message and this resulted in all sorts of spam messages being left.
The new system (Panasonic I think) comes with a pre-recorded answering message which the shit-bags seem to recognise instantly.
Result - very few messages left for us. Result indeed !
" I pointed out that there still wasn't a British Standard for Smart Meters so even if they installed one they might have to replace it with an approved on later"
Also different leccy suppliers use different meters, different software... so if you dance to that other favourite gubmint tune and SWITCH - then your spiffy new smart meter immediately becomes a good old-fashioned dumb meter.

..all the arguments about the (lack of) quality of DAB have been well rehearsed - and fallen on the dismally cloth-like ears of those in authority!
But what really pisses me off is the thought of scrapping about a thousand quids worth of good quality F.M. receivers.
And then this smug git keep telling me this new stuff is so much better when FACT it ain't.
OK they _may_ solve the problems with mobile reception in cars and the sound quality of sets currently on offer may be good enough for background listening etc. but what the F**K do I replace my HiFi systems with.
