For the safety of...
"Does this still work when the thing's going flat out on the freeway, we wonder? For the safety of other drivers, we hope not."
...other road users, we hope it's not allowed on the "freeway".
That's not the correct attitude...
"However, when it comes to formal letters and even job applications, they need to get the correct spellings in place."
I fail to understand how, if a certain person cannot spell correctly in everyday life, that they should be allowed to produce one document (in this case a CV) to show literacy skills. I believe they need to use correct spelling and pronunciation in all forms of communication.
Maybe remove the 160 character limit for sms based messages to allow for full English to be used?
Maybe 5.5.6 (I might implement this on my server in fact) e-mails which contain more than x amount of spelling errors or abbreviated words like "yea" when "yes" would suffice with the same number of keystrokes.
Maybe a good old speech from a certain Microsoft exec before school everyday? "Spelling, spelling, spelling, spelling, spelling"... and so on and so forth.
In fact, I'm bored of this, where's my BOFH?
...made the exact same problem.
Hence the reason I buy direct! What kind of money back can those people get? Anyone know? Sounds like a big fat nothing.
Mine's the one without the iPhone.
Refund? I wouldn't stop there!
I'd go as far as charging them for my time installing the magically-disappearing app and then charging them for my time spent scratching my head, wondering where my $1000 app went.
@Apple, you suck. This is all just a little too underhanded.
What I want to see is...
A selection of bluetooth headsets that sit well in a full face bike helmet.
I own a small bluetooth headset (the name and model eludes me) no wider than 15mm, yet still doesn't sit well in my helmet.
stop thinking outside the box
It's simple, the game has an 18 certification, blame the fat parents.
Flame, well, it's obvious isn't it?
uhm, quite a few flaws.
Granted, you MAY make the tank invisible, but that will only work when it's sat still. Have you ever seen a tank barreling across desert at 50mph? Are they planning on making the dust it kicks up invisible? There's so many things wrong with this, I give up.
How many carbon credits are they buying from other truly green companys?
or is this a case of outsourcing, thus not including 90% of the company?
PH, She has her own energy policy don't you know?
(not all at once...)
I was trying to drink my cold tea, you now owe me a new keyboard.
High Five for me.
It's stories like this that make me very glad I didn't go to College or University and skipped straight into the workplace.
@ The secret to IT
You've hit the nail on the head. I, luckily, worked this out when I was 18 and have lived by it since.
It's hearing the generators kicking in outside to backup the ups' before the users see the plume of diesel...
It's seeing the lights dim one time and being called 'crazy' when you put on your tin foil hat.
PH, she also knows what to do when the lights dim. ;)
it's one thing to
Its one thing to shout abuse / slander at your spouse / friend / neighbour behind closed doors, but to broadcast it on such a massive medium is just not nice... maybe I'm just too polite.
I agree, free speech, but come on love, get back in the kitchen.
I hate any site with audio you cannot turn off! C'mon! Sort it!
Can nobody smell history repeating?
So, you're in Jail, you get accepted for this networking course, you then get a job in AUS as it's on their preferred skills list.
Mine's the one with the visa, first come first served.
Cool? I don't think so.
<joke>Besides, what's so great about this? Even PH can drive a car!</joke>
Epic Fail : Daily Mail.
Mines the power armour with the water purifier.
simply opt out?
Almost everyday you have to opt-out of something or other so what's one more?
PH, because her data's already been farmed...
