NHS tears out its Oracle Spine in favour of open source

Re: Of course the desktop will still need IE6

Admittedly we (the NHS) are behind the times, but when there's a whole flotilla of various medical systems, with varying requirements that have to be hosted we have to go for the base level browser for all the applications. In the trust I work for we have been rolling out IE7 for the last year and are now progressing to IE8; the ending of XP support next year will force a lot of NHS trusts to go to Windows 7 (with the added impact of newer browsers) and that is something us support staff would welcome.

I'm not saying the NHS is at the forefront of technology but we are taking those progressive steps whilst maintaining an infrastructure that currently works, albeit not at the head of the queue singing and dancing but plodding along doing the work day in day out.

Brazillian

I think the Mrs should get rid of her Brazillian, we don't want that one fingering by the spooks on the way through customs.

Pint

Every time I hear or read the name Daily Mail I recall the moment in 'Sightseers', "He's not a human being, he's a Daily Mail reader".

BBC-featured call centre slapped with hefty fine for unwanted calls

WTF?

Didn't work for me

I had one of these b*st*rds call me recently . A nice young lady from (I assume) India said she was calling as someone on my number had had an accident recently. Normally I'd tell them to p*ss off but that day I decided to wind them up and so I said very enthusiastically "Yes, you're right there was someone who had an accident!" The line went silent for 2 seconds, and then they hung up.

A pity as I was hoping to get some form of compensation from the incident of tripping over my cat in the night.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is added to margarine, you don't need to go to Ecuador for Vitamin D, a trip to the local supermarket by one of the embassy lackeys will soon solve the problem.
