I'd love to see how the Ford's sign-reading technology would cope in London where you often have at least five signs at a junction, some of them with entirely contradictory information!

Good luck to anyone wanting to build anything near Frinton, being a mere Emperor of the Ocean won't be enough to persuade that mob within the Gates!

Cowardly Animosity

Go TITLE yourself

So much of my yoof was lost to Manic Miner, Jet Set Willy and Pimania, not to mention Elite. And all the cool skillz I learned debugging those bloody programmes I religiously typed in from Commodore User (how I loved my VIC-20) and Sinclair User!

BPI works out how to put PG stickers on downloads

Cowardly Animosity

Nice one...

"After all, buying stuff legally rather than hitting the torrents has got to be worth it if it's guaranteed to piss off your parents."

In my defence, why should any of my hard-earned wonga go to La Bieber, whose creepy pre-pubescent lyrics deserve an advisory sticker?

[quote] It is worth remembering, however, that despite your enthusiasm for supporting customer loyalty, not every customer is worth keeping.

“There are those customers that habitually switch, chasing the lowest possible price. So by spotting the trends and identifying them, you can let them go, instead of offering them a discount or spending marketing budget on them,” says Vile. [/quote]

Or you could just give us what we want!

Oh, and my date of birth is utterly irrelevant, and asking for it will lead to me rapidly exiting your website, never to return.

Twitter joke martyr loses appeal

"the message was not treated as a real threat and had no effect on the running of the airport"

So in other words, no real costs were incurred and it was pretty much treated as a joke. No harm no foul? Or is that just too much like common sense...
