Our local burned down in February 2007.
It was shut for over a year.
Before the fire I never went near it. Too smoky, too much SkySportsTV, too much lager, lousy food and not a single drop of proper cask ale.
Now it's rebuilt and reopened, and it's gone from strength to strength.
No smoke, No TV, one or two lagers, four fresh local draught ales and a fifth joining soon.

DASD space problem?
Get the trainee [mainframe] operator to fetch a box of storage.

£11....to move from Opt 1 to Opt 2 ?
Now that's a lot of hours chat before it's worth the change.
Last time I looked, we spent about 12p a month on calls, and £10 on line rental/VAT
Bad line rental.

Demise of the mainframe?
But that's proper computing!

Why no PAYG option for those of us who'd only use such a facility on rare occasions?

These patches always seems to occur on Wednesdays. Is the American for 'Tuesday' now 'Wednesday' ?
What about the rest?
2 x £750 = £1500, leaving the TocH people £675 in the red.
Who thinks up these fines, not that these numpties will ever pay a penny of their dues.
Will the final range include
