Street View snooptrike stalks Siena

My spot in Gateshead has been added to the map, clumsily taking following the Opel snapping an iPhone pic whilst driving. All legally and safely, of course.

O2 and Be customers suffer network congestion

Have been...

Have been getting this only recently (in the past week or so) when I've left a laptop grabbing stuff from usenet. I'm on the 16mb package, and after about 6pm, it can crawl to anything from 4mb - 7mb actual.

Was going to ring them and whine but looks like this is the issue! Fair play to them though, they're cheap as chips and I've had nil problems so far...

Gates Halo

Optical Illusion?

Completely off-topic, but if you view this story from the Reg homepage - does the icon for this story (the Windows one) look as if the left hand edge is all askew? It's either my eyes or these cheap capuccino sachets. Or devil gates. Yes, devil gates will do for this one.

I should bloody well think so.

Paris - well, because she's back.

Artistic Skills - but no time

I started Illustrating an old guy asleep on a chair with The Guardian on the armrest and some bourbons on t'other. Then I realised it's nigh on 14.30 and there are more important things to do, damn you work!

Failing that, a doctor's waiting room, stamping a Bingo card, or trying to pass motions on a Commode are all viable themes - get to work, unemployed artists!

Paris 'cause, well, she's an unemployed "artiste" isn't she. Bless.

3 points and a fixed penalty...

Is what it's going to be when using one of these - surely more distracting than using a mobile phone? May be all well and good on their test track or driving around the car park - try driving through a City Centre and adjusting your Radio - someone's going to get seriously hurt!

Mine's the one with 'Paramedics' on - rushing towards me after ploughing into a Bus Stop. All I wanted was to turn Radio 2 off!
