Re: Talk like an Egyptian
Most smart phones have proximity sensors that disable the screen when it's held close to your head.
It's the people who are left-handed but right-eared, or vice versa, that I feel sorry for - having to hold your phone awkwardly with your arm across your body looks most uncomfortable!
50p a litre? Why are we being ripped off so badly at over 120p a litre??
What about disturbing others?
I favour electronic communication in open plan offices to avoid disturbing others.
I would happily shoot the sociopaths who think they have the right to share their conversations, thoughts and phone calls with the whole damn floor...
UI elements that make it obvious what they do?

Re: Return Samples?!
Calm down dear! Sheesh - people already think we've found life on Mars due to piss poor tabloid headlines...

Maybe they had to be careful with the 'non tank' sample in case there was a tank hidden in some of them and they couldn't spot it...
Re: We need some ...
From a couple of places I've worked, labelling the hot taps seems to be an ISO9001 requirement...
Why? Just why?

Who brought the Cornish into this?? They'll be whinging on next... Actually, they won't, but the job will be done dreckly.

Re: The beginning of the end .....
Our TalkTalk broadband has been reliable and reasonably priced, but phoning them has been immensely frustrating. How can a Telco have such bad lines??
And you know they're offshored when they struggle to understand an English accent... Actually, I think I just answered my first question!
Trouble is, who is good value and provides good customer service?

"Where am I, what am I? Oh, I'm an iPhone! Noooo!! Goodbye cruel world!"
Round here drivers' brains struggle to keep up with reality, so a car second-guessing their intentions sounds like an accident waiting to happen!
