Olympics security cockup down to software errors - report

Repay the money you c**ts...

They should return the money paid to them to provide the security. The money returned should be paid to each soldier individually, not to the MOD (who will waste it), or the CO of supporting Regiments because it will end up being used to refurbish the Officers' Mess (been there and seen that done before).

Also, the various MPs who have received free tickets to the more prestigeous olympic events (apparently for having done such a great job) should return them as they haven't done such a great job after all.

India preps craft for first mission to Mars

Re: We paid for this...

"We" is the UK, where we send loads of money to India to feed their poverty stricken populace because they can't be arsed as they have nuclear weapons and space missions to fund.

We paid for this...

This is a country to whom we give financial aid. They cannot afford to feed their own people, but can spend money on a mission to Mars.

Talk Talk Marketing

Talk Talk marketing rang me every afternoon for four weeks. Then I accused "Kevin" (as he called himself) of not actually being called "Kevin" and terminated the call by calling him a cunt and if he ever rang me again and I'd hunt him down and castrate him.

He actually rang me back two minutes later and threatened to call the Police. So, called him a cunt again and hung up. No plod at the doorstep and they've stopped their marketing calls.

MediaPortal is by far the best HTPC software available and is completely free. Tried Sage once - not very impressed.

Shockingly bad.

I've had more fun arranging my toe nail clippings into amusing shapes than playing this utterly attrocious game. Crap game play, crap story line, crap everything.

Flippant Disregard For Data Security

In keeping with the way other government agencies look after our data, I wouldn't be surprised to find all our records being kept on an old NAS drive someone found in a skip.

A little bit of GPS magic could pave the way to post-pub homing legs - with way points so you can stop for a kebab.

Why dig up the roads?

Fibre can be passed through the sewage system, which itself goes past everyone's front door. Someone is already doing this - in Bournemouth if I remember correctly.
