@Robert E A Harvey
I can see it now, or rather hear it. Railway carriages, cafes and offices, all full of wankers shouting at their PCs, even louder than they already do at mobile phones:
"No, I said 'science', not 'seance' you stupid bloody thing!" No -- don't write that! I said don't -- aaaaaaaargh!!"
Bang, crash, PC out the window. Maybe it is a good idea after all.
was that deliberate? or am I just reading too much into everything these days?
@Can someone explain what's wrong with the second sentence
There's actually nothing wrong with "I still run into..."
It's the rest of the sentence that's problematic. A bit of punctuation would help because It's not clear who's asking the question, people or kids. Without a few commas to help out he's also saying that weekends have kids.
It should be "kids who", not "kids that" as well.
It's much better than the first sentence. But, as many people have pointed out, we know what he means so does it really matter?
@The Fuzzy Wotnot
Not looked at the site then?!
Yes, sleb stuff is there but also the best support for all TV/ADSL problems -- it's always the first port of call when I have a problem or need to know something technical.
Yeah, bugger the fact that the victims are almost certainly the old and the poor, without access to PC's the internet and the higher intellect we see displayed here.
High horse? No thanks, too many people on it ahead of me.
@What's the point?
Assuming they paid peanuts for the brand all they have to do is replicate one of their existing websites and add 'Woolies' to the systems the call centres use to service all their brands.
One very cheap extra outlet, trade on the name until it falls into disrepair and then get shot. Quite astute really. Only thing is of course that they just made a shed load of call centre employees redundant, maybe they'll need some back....
@cal -- me too
Very impressed that you came back and apologised -- nice one.

Umm... surely the clangers didn't live on OUR moon -- they were far away in space? Or am I remembering it wrong?
Cue hundreds of corrective emails from people who can actually go and check.
I was going to complain about "the same day that Nokia’s Tube could be unveiled on" but thought that might be too pedantic. Glad I wasn't the only one who thought it stuck out sore thumb like a.
I see irony has also died a death.....
why paper or plastic?
Couldn't you just take your own bag to the shops every time you go?
That would get rid of the waste problem and the need (need?!) for systems like this?
Apologies for pointing out the bleeding obvious.
"The fuss was justified from the perspective that this is an impactful finding that has the potential to bring down the internet," said Nitesh Dhanjani, a senior manager at Ernst & Young.
Impactful?! Can't they hire people who can speak properly at these corporations?
It's the death of the American Language as we know it......
couldn't agree more -- or would, if cOuLd, but never can quite "say..."say, what?" goodbye to a society, needless to say.
BArcelona -- the agony and the ecstasy -- Drogba scores again, jackets for gOalposts, spirit of 66... ah. aArdvArk
The young lady does indeed seem to have a problem with her hand, almost as though it had been grafted on at some point.
Also, and this is not necessarily unrelated, I am also a little concerned that the PC appears to throw no shadow, much like the vampirical undead of legend.
Could it be that Vlad the Impaler has been reborn with a Linux operating system?
We must be told! To the castle!
Too right, where is aManFromMars when you need him?

They must have been stuck in the mod queue so each 'eejit' thought they were the first to point out Neil's mistake, that's all.
I, for one, would not have posted a correction if someone else's post had got through before I wrote mine.
No Neil -- you've got it wrong.
It's the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, meaning that the United Kingdom is made up of GB and NI (and a few other places too).
Northern Ireland is as much a part of the UK as Windsor.
to @Rubbish and Luke.........
To be fair, @Rubbish is correct, if the thing *could* make a CD rotate at 200rpm in the middle and 500rpm at the edge, then indeed it would not 'stay in one piece for long'.
But then Luke is also correct....
Ho hum, back to work .......;-)
The Pedantic Twat strikes
"The 12 million number had already been cut in January from between 13 million and 15 million",
I think not. The 12 million number was the result of a cut, not one which had been cut. The number that had been cut was the unidentified number that lay somewhere between 13 million and 15 million.
