Probably only any use if you’re in the UK
Where the fuck did it all go so badly wrong?

It goes into creating an illusion of “preserving the nation’s heritage for future generations”. Unfortunately, they can’t actually tell you which generation is going to benefit. It sure as hell won’t be the next generation, and I doubt it will be the one after. It’s purely protectionism of itself, and cash fleeced from customers. I’d sooner smash all the pointless stately homes down and use the land to build houses that people can actually live in.
I don't understand why customer service would be cited as a reason to leave. If I have to talk to any customer services on a regular basis then something else is amiss such as service or billing, I'm not inclined to just call them for a chat. As with many suppliers I have right now, I wouldn't be able to rate how good my ISP's customer service is because I've never needed to call them.
An article from What Hi-Fi many years ago has always stuck in my mind. Some dick that had conned his parents into taking out a loan for some outrageous stuff that he intended to pay back with his paper round money, telling the world that he listened to music that he didn’t like because it showed off the tonal acrobatics of the kit (or some such bollocks). And sometimes he’d just sit in silence looking at it.
Eh, what with everything being ‘serverless’ in the cloud no one needs physical infrastructure. They just need a good line in hyperbole.
Does anyone else remember the purple Unix servers that Fujitsu made with the slanted top? Appalling design, where the hell was I supposed to put my coffee cup when I’m sat at the console??
