Re: Fanbois vs. Troll authors - jeez, grow up

"slagging off a huge part of the population"

The dumbed down masses, do you mean?

Don't they exist for slagging off?

What else are they useful for?

For strut-and-pose amongst themselves; for providing a source of laughter to others?

Come on, if you parade shiny-shinies and a sense-of-self-importance complex we're going to laugh.

So the function of said devices, for you, is to be purchased and to be displayed?

Of you're a sort of digital train spotter?

Fascinating (in a sociological, anthropological sort of way).

Total cost of THAT axed NHS IT fiasco to taxpayers: £10.1bn

Just what I said it would be, ~£10B

... when the outfit I was with won a sizable chunk of the original ~£1B contract.

Mark my words, I said, the cost will be ten times that by the time they scrap / abandon it.

It always is, with big government contracts.
