I agree entirely. They are a right pain. They are supposed to stop spammers that use software to log into sites. However it seems to work with humans as well. Surely they don't need to make them so difficult to read?
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

You'd be surprised how good the software is these days. Also btw one other reason they are hard to read is that they mix in bits of text from book digitisation projects where the computer couldn't cope. All those annoying little tests are also helping digitise all sorts of literature ..

Happy today as I bought CorelDraw X5 (graphics software), and Microsoft Office Professional Plus (8.95 for the latter, and legal).   :)

I'm so angry....the 'genuine' CD I bought of CorelDraw X5 is a counterfeit. :veryangry2:  I've contacted the seller and I'll see what he will do.  Either way, it's going back, and eBay and Corel will know about it.  What a waste of time. :thumbsdown:

Postboxes are being stolen in East Hants/West Sussex. I went to a box and all that was left was a few bricks. The thieves are taking virtually the whole box, including all of the Post Office bits.

There are also two nasty scams going on. One is where a toy baby in a cot is being left by the side of the road, drivers stop to see if it is real and then they are dragged off and assaulted.

The other is that eggs are thrown at car windows. As drivers typically use their windscreen washers, their windscreens become covered in cloudy eggy goo. When they pull off the road to clean the windscreen - there are people waiting for them . . .

This sort of stuff just sickens me.

Any owners of an E Type Jag here?

Doesn't matter anyway, as none of you are in New Zealand - just as well, considering I came very close to writing one off at Morningside Drive level crossing in Auckland which was stopped on the Up Main behind another one stopped on the Down (I know!!!) waiting for the New North Road Traffic Lights. Despite only travelling at 30MPH your speak, on a 4 car SA set plus a DC locomotive, still stopped passed where they were before they panicked and shunted forward into the car in front!

As if that wasn't bad enough, coming back from Swanson, some clown decided to walk out in front of me at Woodward Road, Mt Albert, despite me being in plain sight, having blasted the horn and headlights on high beam! Worst of all, he was looking at me the whole time!  :veryangry: :veryangry: :veryangry:

So its not just the Uk where the idiots can't recognise a level crossing eh ?.

The Italians also like to queue over crossings, I obviously annoyed a Local as I didn't want to drive onto the level crossing at Lucca, there is about 20 metres between the gates but then the line speed is probably only 50km so I guess they think they have time to bail out if they see a train !
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

No one would ever try that where I grew up. (Gravesend, Kent)
If they did the car would stop, reverse and then the driver would get out and beat the c@*p out of them!

Not the best news Mike, but when you do get a start that is the time to show them you are indispensable and they can't do without you  :thumbsup:

Mid September is only 2/3 weeks away and they have said it could only last until December. That means it could last longer. Lets have you back on the Happy Thread Mike. Fingers crossed for you mate  :thumbsup:
