Nice to see Karma, good that the sudden sacking ended up with a big smile in the end :)

I can't have robbed the bank, i'm legally dead!
"...but you're still deceased as far as the law is concerned." How much fin could you have!! i.e
1. ROB A BANK!
2. police catch you and you go to court.
3. "Sorry your honor, this man is legally dead, he tried to undead himself and the state declaed him still dead. Therefore it is impossible for my client to have all the money he was accused of robbing a bank for, because, he is dead, and was found dead on 2 seperate ocassions. The dead can't rob banks."
Where's the argument?
As they insist he is still legally dead and therefore still legally non existant and can't get pasports/driving licences etc, then it stands to reason he can't legally go to prison, becasue he is dead and doesn't exist!, They can't gave it both ways!! pmsl.
"Then I calmly unplug the Ethernet switch from the mains… and kick the fucking thing out of my office, down the fucking hall, through the fucking kitchen and into the fucking garage for fucking refuckingcycling." Had me laughing, love it. Brilliant bit of writing, thorougly enjoyed and I so do the swearing at equipment :D
Why do we need cars that need:
- A computer system to turn the ignition off when a barrela nd key works with no less benefit.
- Attaching to a laptop to bring wipers to the middle so you can change the blades, as the blades hide under the bonet when you turn them/the car off.
annnnnnnnnnd i could go on forever lol.
computers and electronics are great, but do we really need one to do simple mundane tasks which REALLY don't need making super complicated?! It's all about robbing the customer blind,
You need to connect your car to my gizmo mate to find out why your car is in limp mode. It'll give me an error code whih i can look up to tell me. Oh btw it costs £60 jto do that; just to tell you what's wrong.'
Nice money earner!
'it still retains a large customer base of more than 2.2m users.' I'd be more inclined to say that's more like the number of people who still with an AOhelL CD!! they made great tea coasters
I'm surprised AOhelL are still in business after the grief and poor service they provided for years. And still are it seems.
"... websites that receive a DNT signal from the new browsers could argue that it doesn't reflect the users' preference, and therefore, choose not to honor it," Lynch said.
What a load of bollox. I didn't choose to be spammed by websites either Lynch, auto opt in by default to send me junk doesn't reflect users preferences either but I bet you still do it!!! Wish I could choose not to honor it. Twat.
"It is, in theory, around three times as efficient as the DAB that we're used to"
Does that mean it's 3 times worse or 3 times less worse? I bought a portable DAB radio some years back. I gave up on it because unlike a portable radio that i can listen to on the move, i cold only listen to DAB if i sat still and didn't move, otherwise the signal kept dropping out. Bit pointless when it was designed to fit in your pocket for portable listening!
As for Hugo, I have had a portable light taht take batteries for years, It's called a torch, and I have a bigger one that uases LED's too, it's called a battery powered lantern. Neither cost £69.99 !!
i wonder what would happen if this was apple applying
exisited the owner could not have
Yeah it's very similar, it's 2 letters less, so you can't have it. Because errr it sounds similar.
Oh! it's YOU oh great 'i' in the sky. Yeah right, we all know what 'icaant' would do here don't we.
I see The Australian Federal Police have strict controls on booking out/booking in explosives what with nobody noticing 230 grams of KABOOM! being booked out of a secure.lockup (the drawer on reception) but not booked back in. I wonder how secure the prison keys are (hung on the back of the toilet door) or how secure the drugs are fro the last drugs raid (on the back seat of a police car). Cracking job there ozz police!
spokesperson Amber Gott “We have been engaged with our provider the entire time ..."
And to finish that dsentence for Amber:
Meanwhile, we have been completely UNengaged with our entire customer base the entire time.
Why do so many providers of services find it so difficult to say ASAP 'we have a problem, we're looking into it'.
Thank your lucky stars you didn't choose PITNEY BOWES !!
Putting account on stop for non payment (ummm, you remember that direct debit you filled in? we chose not to use it),
Charging the incorrect amount for topping up, EVERY time after a constant YEAR of telling us OVER and OVER and telling you OOPS sorry we'll fix that, EVERY time (yawn),
Charging £59.95 EVERY time royal mail changes their rates (it's expensive downloading a small file down the phone line containing a few humbers you know!).
Low battery on your machine? How to change the battery ... Here, have a REFURBISHED MACHINE, now box and drag the old machine to the post office so we can have it back. Changing a battery is extremely difficult and requires great expertise, a simple coin battery holder in a slide out drawer was not designed into the machine to save the user this extremely complicated task .... oh dear, we're billing the incorrect amount for topping up since you have a machine with a different serial number now, silly us!! (yes, really!!)
Make sure you have the right account number, is it the one for the monthly DD, the one for topping up, or the purcashe power one? We have 3 account numbers because ... well, because we're clever! Be silly to hsve one account number related to your one account.
I'll end it there, safe to say PITney bowes ARE the PITs. Roll on renewal time!
In a nutshell, the future is:
Sorry, we can't hire you, you're white and we have a target to employ more black.
THAT is racist.
Knitting company gets fined cus no0t enouigh men are being hired.
MAYBE, there are more men because it's m ore men that enjoy I.T. type stuff, same. It's just genetics, no not a fixed marker but boys do like their toys!
STOP looking and saying ooooh not enough diuversity here, try looking WHY, just maybe it's jack to do with race/age/colour and more about certain jobs attract certain people!
Just realised something ... Mircosoft was ORDERED to ASK the user what browser they wanted to use and provide a list. This was a legal requirement. So for me microsoft ask me what browser i want to use when i first turn on my new computer. had a bought a DELL computer then they decided not to let microsoft ask the question for free, and instead CHARGE you for doing it!!! What next Dell? asking if you want to install at a different resolution and charging for it? charging for what time zone i want to use in windows??
On computers first boot up: DO YOU WISH TO USE FIREFOX YES/NO. Simple startup question to run on first bootup. WTF do you need a PERSON to install it for you!
As for a different image ... windows itself asks what country you are in, what keyboard,etc, microsfot don't have hundreds of images for each country so why would Dell need a new image when a simple question 'Install Yes/No' would suffice! At worst you hae ONE image with the options for the engineer to choose. Hmmm, how much should one charge for pressing ONE button to choose Firefox as apposed to just IE ....
Sounds like a nice money making excercise to me :/
I actually like what FB are doing, and should be commended for allowing their staff to be creative and find solutions to problems without having to have degree's in who knows what and somehow get through to someone at the top of the top of the chain. Encouraging staff to FIND and create a better system for them is great for them and at the same time a real boost for staff when their idea becomes used and is successful. Well done FB, a lot of respect earnt by me for this .
The Delhi police doing jack for 8 years is absymally awful, but India’s anti-corruption agency is even worse for not folliwng ANYTHING up!
Does nobody get audited? are there no performance figures? i.e. Number of complaints 600, percent resolved 0%, in progress 0%, outstanding 100%
Police efficiency 0.1% (well, they must do SOMETHING I assume, other than play minesweeper all day)
How on earth can nobody notice for 8 years that jack had a successful outcome/investigation and there were 0 arrests. And I thought the UK police were useless!
Most modern cars have LIMP mode built into the engine management system which restricts speed/revs if it detects a fault. By taking this a step further, the system could also have stop mode where it gradualy reduces 'limp' speed until eventaully the car stalls and stops at 0 mph. This brings the car to a steady and controlled stop AND keeps the engine running to allow power steering to function etc. The big thing is ensuring the security IS tight so a remote hack in couldn't reverse it and start the worlds car speeding up at random.
Hi mr Telco, my phone has been stolen ... there's a £1000 bill racked up? well that's your fecking problem. I tried to protrect myself the consumer but you money grabbing bstards prevent us from installing anti-theft remote "kill switch" software So YOU can pay the damn bill. If yuo wont let a consumer protect himself from theft then YOU can deal with the fecking consequences! Money grabbing twats.
