HBOS could shift 2,000 IT jobs to India

Paris Hilton

Bollocks to this!

If they move jobs offshore, I'll move my bank accounts and cite that as reason #1 when asked why I'm leaving.

I know from personal experience that offshore doesn't work, I work for an ISP with an offshore support centre, and the best of the staff over there are fucking clueless. Don't ask how bad the worst are, I haven't the words for it.

Its all very well saving a few quid, but if the UK keeps on like this India will be shipping menial jobs like call centre staff here in a generation's time.



Paris, because, well I used the word 'clueless' so that's good enough.

Meat Loaf gets Q gong

Paris Hilton

Re: What about Gordon Lightfoot, eh?

"And there was one Led Zeppelin tune of the late 1970s that I recall as lasting about the middle 2/3 of the Missouri stretch of I-70."

That would be the live version of Dazed and Confused that they managed to drag out to around 43 minutes then? And yes I have a recording of the gig when they did this.

Meatloaf was OK in his day, as were Zep, but I wouldn't give either of them an award now for what they did circa 30 years ago.

Paris, as I know she knows how to rock and moan.

Scumbags punt Trojan with baby kidnap lure

Paris Hilton

re We've Kidnapped Your Mother In Law

How about ...

"We've kidnapped your mother-in-law. Give us $50k or we'll send her back"

That would surely get a better, or more profitable, response.

Paris, cos if you kinapped her, you'd want to give her back. Eventually.

Ukrainian eBay scam turns Down Syndrome man into cash machine


is it just me ...?

... or are ebay going at this in completely the wrong way?

their site is gonna end up with a bad rep and thence no customers if stories like this continue doing the rounds. and that will happen unless ebay themselves start being just a little more active in help in people when situations like this arise.

that would be my view anyway.

Stealth bombers to get bunker-nobbling weapons


bunker bombs are old news

something like this was developed during WWII to go after the V2 rocket launch sites and also massive concrete submarine pens. i think barnes wallis (invented the bouncing bomb used in the dambusters raid) was involved, and i know 617 squadron (the dambusters) dropped the things on various missions over mainland europe. i seem to remember reading the bombs were 10 tonnes, and they could penetrate reinforced concrete quite easily.
