Say what you like about Bezos but he's donated more to the Australian disaster fund than I have.
I can't wait to see that bad press I get now. Time to have a quiet word with Her Maj about withdrawing from public duty.

I've Tippexed the letters QWERTYUIOP on my fingernails, starting with Q on my left hand little finger, but I've no room for the rest. And Y to P look pretty ropy as I can't write very well with my left hand.
Plus I'm out of Tippex remover so I'm going to look like a Lexiconic-Punk on the way home.
I never used to have this much trouble when I wrote with a fountain pen. Hey, a pen with accelerometers and gyroscopes. Now we're getting somewhere.
Well why not?
Do eSports have a car racing section? They probably use foot pedals so comfy, sorry, competitive footwear would be useful. Motorists can buy shoes designed for driving. Gloves too.
The Puma socks do have a nice design. And they haven't gone overboard with the branding yet. That'll come with later designs. (PUMA IGNITE LIMITLESS 2 EVOKNIT TRAINING SHOE. )
So you'll know the gun is at the correct temperature without having to pick it up and squeeze the trigger every ten seconds to no effect.
Of course you'll have to hold your phone in one hand for the whole waiting period so you're pretty much tied to the gun's location either way.
Maybe the LED on the glue gun could just change from, say, red to green when it reaches optimum temperature.
Oh yes! Being from Brexitland (formerly known as The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) the thought of using an umbrella to keep the sun off one's head never occurred to me.
Well what a dope I am. It makes perfect sense for parasol to spray a nice cooling mist at the wielder. As long as they remembered to recharge it overnight.
I'm going to believe him. There are dead insects on Mars.
Ooh I feel so much better now. All the time I've spent getting myself worked-up over the loonies claiming everything is a conspiracy, and now I just kick-back and accept it all on face value.
Wowzer! I feel so liberated. Of course the Earth is flat. Of course they never sent men to the Moon. Obviously Nazi flying saucers are hidden in the dark region at the top of the world. Err, assuming you roll the flat Earth into a cylinder.
Hmm. This isn't going to be as easy as I first though.
“Fibre broadband is good news for customers and TalkTalk. It offers a faster, more reliable service whilst also reducing churn......"
I swap (or is it churn?) my broadband as soon as the contract finishes. Why would you stay with they same provider when the price goes up 25% at the end of your 18 month contract?
Hello new contract and a nice introductory payout from TopQuidcoCashBack.
Anyone want a slightly used branded modem?
Well that explains why the light on my connected to the internet smart socket* has been flashing randomly today. But that was happening on Saturday night and parts of Sunday too. Has this attack been going on for longer?
*Yes I know but it's only being used to turn on a small LED lamp. And half the time I use the button on the device itself. Look just stop judging me.

Wait a second. Is that an 'oh' or a 'zero'?
Thanks for all the helpful comments. I followed your methods to find the Windows version number and they all worked.....but.......
V.1 Click, click, click, scroll, click, scroll.
V.2 Two keys, click, scroll, click, scroll.
V.3 Click, find 'File', click, find 'Help', hover, slide, find 'About Windows', click.
Not exactly simple are they? A combination of clicks, scrolls and hovers needed to find the magic number. And you need to know where to look to find the version number.
All I was suggesting was that maybe putting the version number in the notification area would be an easier way of doing things. Click on notification icon and there's the version number.
@Snorlax. Of course I don't dress myself in the morning. Who gets out of bed before noon?
Why is it such a rigmarole to find out what version of Win 10 one is using? I need to Google the long winded instructions every time this sort of article gets published.
Maybe putting the version number in a prominent place, that notification area springs to mind, would nudge users to upgrade.
I'm prepared to let you have all the information you want in return for making programmes that I want to watch or hear.
What? You'll make lowbrow dramas about cops and murders and I'll bloody well like it?
Also why are there so many trailers for other programmes? 6Music has a trailer every thirty minutes (on average.) It's bloody annoying. Just when Gideon Coe has set the mood on comes A BLOODY TRAILER and the mood is killed. And then there's the news, and the interviews, and the film reviews and Martin Freeman rattling on about The Beatles and Steve Lamacq saying 'Glasto' and all of them saying 'the legendary Maida Vale studio' and 'genre' . Honestly it's getting beyond a joke.
And after all that it's still my favourite radio station.
It won't solve the problem I had in the pub last week.
Not a busy night so only one barman on duty. The regulars had been served and there was only one customer before me at the bar. He ordered a cocktail. As usual making it involved an obscene number of bottles, the slicing of fruits and incantations to a lesser demon. Then he ordered another, different cocktail for the other person in his group.
By the time he'd buggered off to the corner his friends had occupied there were a half-a-dozen thirsty pint drinkers waiting.
Plus: How does this machine cope with the groups of drinkers who stand around watching like hungry hyenas (thirsty hyenas?) while one of their number does the actual ordering? (6 pints of Guinness and a diet coke)
