In a complete about face...

I once had to deal with a computer that had some Charlie in it.

Was setting up a user's own PC for a "Work from home" thing and the case was falling apart and the CD drive was not fitted properly. Thought I'd do them a favour and sort it out and discovered their drugs stash inside.

Chap 'fixes' Microsoft's Windows 7 and 8 update block on new CPUs

Re: Microsoft does not care

If people think it's just moving to Libre/OpenOffice and a decent replacement for Outlook/Exchange to appear for Linux to become a solution then they need their bumps felt.

My clients are Insurers/Finance Companies/Architects/Lawyers. Office and Email are small potatoes compared to the investment in the software that actually runs their businesses. There are no Linux alternatives and I suspect there never will be,

D'oh! Amber Rudd meant 'understand hashing', not 'hashtags'

Huw D

People in power that don't understand technology make statements about technology that people who do understand technology rip to shreds.

When NOT to get a date format wrong

Asked for a tattoo design when I was in Austin, Texas. Simple thing. A date in a banner.

The artist asks "What date?"

"4th November 2016"

"How's that?"

"Mate, that says the 11th of April... Can you do it in words..."

Re: arguably the UK’s most famous ginger man

a) Apologies for the typo on "heroin". I sent myself to bed with no supper for that one.

b) Frankie Boyle tends to stereotype all Scots as heroin addicts and I was using that route, honest. ;)

c) Pint of anything would be great.
