Same old shite, different day.
Edits hosts to resolve marketing.shitebank.co.uk to 127.0.0.1
No Script, Ghostry, UBlock Origin & Little Snitch do a fine job in fucking off the rest.

Until you work out the price for all the rental ware, pay yourself £0 per hour to control the spyware & when it breaks after, oh er, how long?

...Stories like this, and Google's habit of killing off services, are what make me wary of relying on cloud services for anything.
Spelling: there's an r in Capita - you know where it goes.
"At least with the IRA, they had a mission and they were not anxious to kill a lot of people"
Well, they did actually and all these years later there seem so many organisations & politicians who try to wash it away. The Nobel Prize-winning author Doris Lessing referred to the September 11 attacks as "not that terrible" compared to the campaign of terror waged by the IRA in Britain and Northern Ireland with over 3600 killed and many thousands injured.
Granted, it was over several decades but that dosnt make it any less of a crime.
No worries there Senor Cruz, we wont so we wont have to bother your call centre either.
But why oh why do some ignorant users have to?

The MS wheel mouse isnt bad, but probably copied from Logitech

So just fuck off anyway, Im never going to buy it
A N other grumpy old man
Is that all?
Just about do lunch at the Ivy for a bunch of Crapitas.
Agreed, regrettably they are much more likely to be promoted.
Try the MOP - 30,000lbs of good ole Uncle Sams finest

Our Rayburn uses wod & works superbly well, heating water by convection.
So if the Russians cut off the gas & theres a power cut, it continues to heat the house, water & cook.
Now have a choice
& dont want to be spied on.
Well, Apple have crapped all over them, the types that stuck with Apple have been shunned into a corner with aps like Aperture discontinued & something resembling a fancy trash can to replace the much loved Mac Pro.
Will they come back?
Microsoft have sunk lower than spammers & malware writers & deserve a red hot poker up their arses, see how they like 'new ways to do familiar things'
