I'd say my average wait for a tube train is less than two minutes. Hardly enough time to even log on.
I'm guessing she clicked the link on this page: http://theoatmeal.com/djtaf/j/88
All rather predictable
The cast majority of patients probably have a satisfactory and unremarkable trip to their local GP. These people are unlikely to be motivated to go online and leave a comment.
Those who are disgruntled, annoyed or dissatisfied will have plenty of motivation to go and air their grievances.
Eventually you end up with a forum full of complaints and everyone looks bad.
Running the Doomsday clock must be a thoroughly depressing job
Presumably they spend their entire time thinking about how close to annihilation we all are.
We'll never be able to grow anything there now!
So am I going to have to start paying for the use of my genes?
Yup they really haven't thought this through...

We should at least be able to store cookies so that we know the user doesn't want us to store cookies. Oh wait...
Charge the shopkeeper.
Shouldn't the police be charging the shopkeeper with intent to purchase stolen goods?
Follow Microsoft's advice, install extra software, watch a video on how it works and start hacking around so that: "this type of exploit will most likely fail".
Or you could just use a different browser.
We really must protect the children...
Yup, we need to protect the children from the absurd costs such a plan would incur. After all it's them that will be paying for this nonsense once they get a bit older and start work.
but we already had keyboard navigation. Tab & Enter keys anyone?
I for one welcome my nanny state
As my eyes drifted down to this post I was thinking the exact same thing.
Surely it would be much more cost efficient to provide desk tops?
ok so where's my dummies guide to self re-inbursing the randon £4 that is regularly deducted from my Oyster card?
Wish I wasn't at work
I'm strangely interested to know what on earth a search for "Duck porn" returns.
just making it worse...
Whilst they focus on doing the job for you rather than giving you the tools to do the job; bloat is unavoidable.
Spreading the bloat just adds to the problem.
Need a new ISP
So far this year they have
1: lost customer bank details:
2:attempted to miss-sell broadband speeds: http://www.pocket-lint.co.uk/news/news.phtml/15820/16844/asa-upholds-bts-virgin-complaint.phtml
3: started throttling download speeds:
4:Increased prices with sneaky letters like this:
and now this :(
Yup time for a new supplier.
Nothing really new here.
According to the article the only difference between this proposal and the current CRB checks is that they will also hold data of your current job.
Unless I'm missing something, there is no real story here, people who work with, or even close to kids, need to have a CRB check and it has to be paid for. I'm not seeing much different here.
From what I've seen of Firefox 3 beta the differences are pretty minimal. This is just a well timed publicity stunt jump from 2 to 3. Nicely between IE7 & 8.
Whilst I'm sinical I will still promote the day a bit because it's a great browser and a lot of people would be happier using it over IE.
Paris because she uses Firefox :)
