ASA slaps Ebuyer AGAIN - this time for ignoring regulator


It used to be a good retailer, tried it for the first time again in 5 years and they screwed a simple order up.

BT fibre-to-the-premises trial takes 7 hours per install


Aylesbury 'already has the fibre facility' BT tells me

Aylesbury Bucks,

BT tell me we already have fibre-optic capacity - the average broadband speed is currently 2mb, often less on the south and eastern side of town.

Of course everyone is on Virgin cable DSL at 10mb basic instead.

BT offered me a sample cost - roughly twice the monthly price - installation is extra and the supplied bandwidth still does not match Virgin.

The thing is - there has been no local work on fibre installation - it has been seen to be installed on the high street (at night) but not to any residential area; so the theory that I could have it installed is about 1 mile short of geographical reality.

Locals who are still on dial-up - 33k

No bull !

This is the Home counties, County town of Buckinghamshire, a very middle class area, with thousands of commuters and 42 miles from London with direct train and road access (paying customers); but an extremely poor local loop network.

You'd have thought it an ideal location.

Mozilla confirms Firefox 4 beta 12 is FINAL test build


Hotmail - no problem, no-one in their right mind would use it anyhow!

Hotmail bug?

Pardon !?!?

Of course Firefox users are far to educated and refined to use such a CHAV tool as 'Hotmail'.

Problem solved.

Energy is energy

Why the feck not?

Energy is energy and wasted energy is a sin against Gaia etc.

No seriously, I'd like my gas fuelled pyre to do something useful, our local unit is not far from Chequers, maybe it could be used to incinerate useless political figures, a bit a James Bond movie like - no need to expenses scandal, Chris is burning tonight - Whoosh, useless Chancellor gone - who's next for doing a better job?

That would make me feel a whole let better.

Ye Gods - why did no-one tell me?

Now I might actually have to use that backup software I've been backing up for the past 10 years,

mind you - the only time I needed it - Acronis informed me it simply could not perform the backup as the indexes were incorrect - so bloody useless software.

McAfee Labs rate it at low /low as a threat and it was blocked by the A.V programs as early as July,

BUT it infiltrated an Iranian nuclear reactor - so we better invade the country just to be sure.
