You're not kidding, there are times when I think that users shouldn't be allowed.

Okay, Seriously?! How many people who watch SGU give a sh!t about Ryan F'n Giggs and Twitter? Never mind who would give enough of a sh!t to have a banner come up multiple times for a while each time telling us to switch over to Sky News? Yes we're watching SGU just so we can switch over and see some feckin tabloid news story.

If they want to put it on Sky 1 HD, why not just do it on a ticker at the bottom, instead of obscuring part of the episode?! Idiots! :el:

Wifi, whilst it's way way way easier to get working than it used to be, the range is still shite and I'm still enough of a sucker to believe the box when it says improved range (best ever). :el:

Wow, had no idea this happened.
This is one of those stories that the media has far more interest in than the public.

When some idiot (no names, no packdrill :) ) locks the keys to their car inside their own boot. A boot that currently cannot be opened without said keys. A boot that cannot be accessed from the rest of the unlocked car. A car parked in a public carpark that due to idiot proofing takes a little bit of effort to be locked without the key. :el:

All sorted now.

MY TICKING BLOODY FRIDGE/FREEZER.

*breathes* Sort of fixed now, I've unstuck the defrost clock from the nice amplifying part of the casing and it's so much quieter. :wack:

Stupid people!!!!!!!!!!

For example, a sales guy calls me up to check whether I'm happy with some parts they'd had to resend, cos the 1st lot weren't all correct (not the best start), I say "I've not received them yet, can I have a tracking number), it takes him about 5 hours to finally get back to me and say that they've not even been dispatched yet and having given a grudging apology and said "that's why I said eta 2-3 days" got mildy snarky at about the fact that I was getting pissed off about the speed of their service and communication. HE PHONED ME!!!!!!!!!!!! :el:

A client asked me to install wireless for them, two slight problems when I get there, no broadband and someone else had their laptop. Is it me? :el:

You should've given them an empty box and told them it was their wireless connection. Sounds like it might've worked

You referring to them taking away the links along the top of results for things like images? And instead placing them in a drop down which now causes them to appear right beside the other links that are down the left hand side. So not at all pointless.

Haven't noticed any recent youtube changes
