It will be like GE-Honeywell all over again
I am constantly seeing this as the rekindling of the General Electric-Honeywell failed merger a few years ago. All this time and effort in this merger will be wasted for nothing, and it will show the EU aren't a bunch of capitalist €urocrats.

According to the Telegraph, the man did try to take his trousers off while in the tree.
Isn't Sage big enough?
Is it me or isn't Sage big enough?
They have so much of the British accounting and payroll software, that I feel it acts like the Microsoft of the SME finance department.
It aquired TAS Software a few years ago and it has basically got rid of it entireally making its customers to go to Sage.
Am i the only one who supports this?
//Will everyone who wants to drink more than 8 pints a week have to attend alcohol abuse workshops?//

I think it is a good idea on the licensing front, smoking-related diseases kills in the UK, 100 000 people. Now if that be put down by as many as a quarter, that is the size of a small market town.

*Possible banning of those dirty foreigners from watching the programme.
Slight problem with SD, it is proprietary.
One of the problems with SD is that, it is a closed format and the company prohibits users making open drivers for the card. This mean, Linux is out of the question for SD cards. If the company can make an USB-esque card, then I am all for it.
There is a simple reason for the high Finnish mobile calls
The reason for the 74% mobile calls is because if one needs to call someone in the local city, it is cheaper to call using a mobile at around 8c per minute, then the local phone company at 12c connection fee and then 1c per minute. And one only has to think why Elisa and Finnet are in OM HEX.
