Travel time charges

After the second call out I would have started charging Travel time + expenses.

I can't stand the blame culture that exists today, shit happens, get over it.

Gmail suffers worldwide wobbly Wednesday

Re: E-mail is unreliable in any case

Or the more usual, oh I just found them in my Spam folder!!

Anyone who runs their own mailserver in this day and age is mad as a hatter. I've been on the wrong end of a large Exchange Server meltdown, that took two weeks to get back to normal, it wasn't pretty and after working an 80 hour week to get it working the client still haggled over the bill and took six months to pay it. No they didn't have an SLA or even a maintenance contract on it.

Everyone I deal with now uses GAW, Office365 or MessageStream, I can have a holiday, sickday and can get hit by a bus safe in the knowledge that if there is an issue it's either between the chair and the keyboard or someone's working on it already.

BT promises biggest ever rural broadband project

Jimathy

Cheap as really.

". for a per capita investment of only about £100."

Jesus I'd happily chip in £100 to get some decent broadband speeds around here. That's cheap as to most business which can loose that amount the second their connection goes flakey.

Broadband tax scrapped in 'wash-up'

Jimathy

Great

We get to keep crap broadband speeds in great swathes of the country, or not at all in many cases.

But hey at least cider is going to stay cheap!
