Re: Email that I jut got from CW
Where did we put those 1.4MB floppies?
Wrt the posters saying its weight will break USB ports, I've used the 64MB and the 2GB version of this, it's a pretty small knife, nowhere near heavy enough to damage a port on a normal laptop.
For flights, the stick does unclip if you're going hand luggage only, or need it in a flight with the knife in your check in luggage.
And the smaller capacity versions do have the unusable nail file, which does make a reasonable screwdriver for smalllhead screws.
Surely the Voynich manuscript is already understood:

I'm not sure I understand your post. The right to strike is somewhat blurrily defined in UK law, certainly the requirements on the unions to call strikes are well defined, exactly what the workers' right to strike is is not as clear.
What I don't understand is your implication that it is possible to write an outsourcing contract which precludes the right to strike. Assuming that there is a right to strike (as I say not as clearcut as it could be), then Fujitsu or any other outsourcer would have no right to sign a contract where they committed that their employees would not strike.
I would assume that the Ts & Cs for Govt. contracts would be no different in this to private sector clients.
Amanfrommars, they're on to you. Watch out for DNA checks.
About a year ago I needed to get to the platform at Leeds station (there's an information booth there). It was 20p for a platform ticket as I remember. Whether I like platform tickets or not, the TSSA are wrong, they exist on at least one of the stations on the NXEC route.
You know there's something seriously wrong with the writing when amanfrommars translates part of the article, and the translation makes sense.!
Greener than walking
Opik was on GMTV yesterday morning. He tried to claim that the Segway was greener than walking. Even a breakfast TV presenter has more clue than that and Garraway pulled him up on this, he waffled something about breathing more heavily when walking.

So you're just wearing a shirt, a pair of loafers and deodorant, and this is meant to show that sysadmins have social skills? I can't wait for the update from dress down Friday .
