he's getting confused in his old age (bless him) and he misheard the recent Clarkson footpath story and "top gear".

I've been arrested for photographing buildings numerous times. My "defence" that I'm recording history of 2010, and that they might one day be used in books like these:
falls on deaf ears.
I wonder if the Victorian photographers whose work is in these books ever had this kind of trouble?
are a bunch of nasty, fickle thugs.
I was in a cashpoint queue about two months ago with Etienne Esajas in front of me and he was getting some right abuse from a fan who'd "been a supporter since the day he was born". The verbal towards Esajas continued, with him eloquently responding to the fan's concerns.
The fan ended the argument with "I pay your wages so go back to where you f*cking come from you f*cking w*g".
Wish I'd have had a taser, that "fan" and his mates wouldn't have been so big and clever laid on the floor, hopefully having soiled themselves after a tasering.
I'm a Blade BTW.
I signed up in September. They gave me a recycled number which was plagued by daily calls from debt collectors and Lord knows who else wanting the previous owner. The Indian call centre rep couldn't say anything other than the script on his screen and was completely useless so I just unplugged the phone.
I then recently requested a change to a new address and was spammed with "sorry you are leaving, please come back" emails. I'm not leaving the service, just taking it to a new address.
Oh and if you're running an old PC I can highly recommend REGISTRY LIFE my MyDefag to speed things up.
Things must be bad on the free protection software front if Microsoft is recommended. What happened to AVG and Antivir? I prefer to buy my AV software - NOD32 all the way.
We've had "consultants" in, talking through the BSF changes that will affect my school. Its easy to see where money will be wasted - very expensive PCs which won't be utilised to their full potential when a £300 one will do the job, blanket wireless throughout the school and - get this - iphones for every pupil so they're "fully connected 24-7", not to mention scrapping the entire fully working IT infrastructure - wiring and servers.
If you're going to employ consultants, at least get some from the real world.
Actually, you CAN leave negative feedback.
If there's a problem with your sale, simply report it to Ebay or Paypal and then the NEGATIVE option comes available, even before the matter is resolved.
I don't sell much on Ebay now, due to the prices, but I'll still use it to pick up "as-new" items for a fraction of the new cost or from second hand traders.
Is it me or is the PCSO just trying to wind up the photographer so he actually has a valid reason to detain or arrest her?
It's the 21st century of the police stopping you in your car because they don't like the look of you or your vehicle, then put their foot through your back light and do you for having defective lights.
Have you ever seen the ACTION REPLAY MAX EVO device for the PS2? It comes with a USB stick and allows you to soft-mod your PS2 to have a different dashboard, or play and install copied games.
It might be a legal product, but the reason people buy it is to mod their PS2 without the need for a modchip.
Finally, a mature response from someone not afraid to put a name to their comments. I tend to ignore anything from an AC because they're either trolling or ashamed to put a name to their comments.
I work in the public sector. The machines I manage are about 4 years old, but do everything they need to on XP. I'm not going to waste taxpayers money replacing them with suites of shiny new PCs just so they can do *exactly the same thing at exactly the same speed* but on a different OS.
Yes, 7 may supposedly be more secure and manageable, but that doesn't justify the cost or environmental hassle of scrapping perfectly good machines and replacing them with something new that can run 7.
The OS is supposed to work for us, not the other way round.
Are you honestly saying there is no need to bother updating XP because its out of support in 3-5 years? You need to get out of your bedroom and into the real world where XP is dominant and will be for some years to come.
My enterprise isn't alone in sticking with XP because the machines and the applications we use don't requite Vista, 7 and the more powerful PC it will require.
