Bad day at work (angry thread???).

Gin and tonic in my hand, a very cool new album playing on the stereo (listening thread...) and trains trundling round my track.  Happy way to wind down. :thumbsup:

Life's little mysteries

The barbecue, because after 2000 years working to invent ways to cook *out of the rain* on something better than a bonfire , it's for some reason better to cook outside on a bonfire in the rain and then spend a fortunate turning the outside fire back into a gas cooker with roof

The tent.. because having got as far as caves, houses and hotels its time to go back to sitting outside, then spending a fortune turning a piece of canvas into a small empire with multiple rooms, ensuite toilet and everything but an inflatable sink, connected of course to the even larger 4x4 powering said operation and providing wireless internet.

I get the feeling a lot of people missed the point, especially a festivals where you stroll past 4x4's connected up to mini-mansions that are far superior to much student accommodation we had.

I was looking at Virgin broadband prices. Noticed that new customers were getting 30mbs and a wireless router for less than I was paying for 10mbs. Phoned them up and got my package changed to the same as the new customers. They are sneaky though. They say £8.50 for the first 3 months, (saving £30.00), but then they charge you £30.00 activation fee!
Still, I'll be paying £3.00 less a month for three times the speed.

So I'm happy that I'll be paying less, but not happy that I had to find it out for myself!  :thumbsdown:

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.
 When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
 I wrote ‘happy’.
They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
