Back To The Future
"We [also] take the situation that happened yesterday very seriously and are undergoing an internal investigation with our fraud team that will report back early last week".
report back last week?
Missed that one
Is there a version 7.0 of Firefox? Must have missed that I'm still on 3.6.23.
Don't Talk Talk
Believe me don't go to Talk Talk. I moved home in May and canceled my subscription. It took three attempts for them to acknowledge I no longer had the service. I then started to receive letters from a debt collection agency demanding payment. I wrote to Talk Talk and they apologised saying it was an admin cockup. Guess what, I am still getting demands for payment and the debt agency is taking me to court. I have over 20 pieces of correspondence proving they know I don't have the service. Looking forward to my day in court as being self employed I intend to counter-sue for loss of earnings. I would like to know if anyone else is having similar problems. Maybe we could start a class action.
My wife also received a D0 coding notice as she was "receiving redundancy payments" according to HMRC. She isn't she works for me on customer's sites.
A D0 would mean all her income is to be taxed at 40% which is a bit much as she doesn't make enough to fall into the 40% bracket.
Looks like HMRC have screwed the data load / transformation when they moved to their new system.
We have just completed a six month evaluation of Ubuntu as an alternative desktop to Windows. We concluded that it was a viable and far cheaper option than a Windows/Office desktop and far more performant. We are now about 50% through the migration to Ubuntu with no issues to date. We went for Hardy as stability is more important to us than being at the leading edge.
