BT does Italian Job on London traffic lights

Fred
Thumb Down

actually....

The reason they were not on the plans is that BT dont bother adding new stuff and upgrades to their program called Netword Records.... its updated as far as the mid 90's cos they closed down local drawing offices....

The number of time ive lost due to bad prints is soo frustrating.. so glad i left that company.... grr.

@ Sarah Bee

I think youll find that atheism has a belief, and that belief is faith there is nothing, where as agnosticism knows theres nothing... very different.

Thank you!

O2 to axe iPhone prices?

Fred
Thumb Up

32GB be nice

I will get an iphone when they are 32GB or hopefully more in size.... 16GB just now is far too expensive for the size. Think im gonna end up buying one in europe somewhere, 500 euros is a bit steep for a glorified phone / media player / camera / spirit level oh and that awesome carlsberg pint thing...

Chinese crackers create counterfeit iTunes racket

Fred

Why is a title needed anyway?

Thats a shame really. Apple have a good product,

yes im a convert, gave in when i needed a large sized mp3 player ie:ipod for my new adventures, eg: stuck in someshit hole for 48 hours twiddling my thumbs with only my dear ipod for company.

And im a proud convert too :D

BT job cuts start to bite ahead of March deadline

Fred
Heart

Raw nerve?

Wow... what a reaction.

Interesting...

I did 4 years with manpower (slave drivers for BTGS) and my 4 years as a telephone engineer... Be a shame to see em struggle, they are a decent company but very very very badly managed! and unfortunately customers get abused...

I cant wait to see the total collapse of the internet and the world with it!!! about time something happened.

Of course this has happened before and will happen again..... Its natural evolution,survival of the fittest.... but in a modern context.

Let it happen... itll filter out M$ and the other multitude of crap anti virus companies and other spin offs and vultures... *cough* i mean paracites... praise be to El Reg, for their helpful insights and good guidance!!!

BT industrial action is off - for now

Fred
Thumb Up

@MarmiteToast

agreed.. same here... only had good experiences with Bt, even before i started working for them... nice of the engineer to come back tho,oh and the free shift of the nte.

however... 1 comment... think some one was talking out of their backsides... cos i do exchange work for openreach and cant imagine a scenario where something unplugged would cause adsl to slow down??

right.... read this...

BT manager's salaries are less than us front line guys... but, they get hefty bonus's depending on how well their staff, their stats etc perform...

And they get medical-aid paid for too... Now... the guys who are out working on the roads, up poles, down manholes taking risks (albeit assesed risks lol) etc dont...

Doesnt add up. trust me, i know...

and our union (CWU) are crap, we recently lost a vote to change our working hours (startin/finishing later) and the union didnt bugger all (again, big surprise) and to add insult to injury, people who wernt going to be effected by the change were allowed to vote too,and they voted in favour... ... ... ... now rumour has it, that the union has no real power anyway; and they cant afford to fall out with Big BT, cos then who would pay their expenses, their hotels, milage and bacon rolls ??????
