  • Donít forget to wipe after you're done.


  • Friend of mine trades secondhand PCs and he says it's amazing what people leave on their machines even after he asks them if they have deleted their files. He even offers to wipe the drive while they wait for free - but the common response is don't bother there is nothing important on the drive. Oh yeah! Ratio is about 1 in 50 is clean when it comes in and 1 in 10 will get him to delete files.

    • After my Viewsonic monitor experience (still on going, I hasten to add) I must confess to having a little sympathy for this fellow.


    • The term, end of their profit cycle just about sums these films up.


    • Now all we have to do is formulate some means of stopping the grannies congregating in "Starburst" groups.


    • Whilst I'm all for research, check out the bottom line.


    • R.I.P. film?


    • Looks like the Secret Policeman is going to have another ball.

    Obviously, at just over 6', I must be the exception to the rule.


    I wonder how tall the head teacher is here? Fortunately though it seems like common sense (of a sort) has finally prevailed.

    Forget about Iraq and Afghanistan. Forget about the rampant influx of east Europeans. Forget about the falling standards of education. Forget about NHS being on the verge of collapse. Itís pleasing to see that the Government is thinking about the truly serious issue of cyclists without bells.

    In a different vein, I also found this rather amusing.

    For those interested in the antics of the RIAA, here's an interesting site.
