And never, ever, think the same 'rules' apply to pedestrian crossings as in the UK. You're just a target ::)
Even if a car stops to let you across, the scooters will get you :o

Try crushing their car while they are sitting in it  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Cars should indeed be confiscated, but not crushed. Very wasteful and environmentally unhelpful.
Get them checked by the AA, give them a new identity and put them to good use for the good of the nation/charity/whatever.
Two rails good. Three better.

I've just got a new phone delivered, and I've rung Orange to change the phone number to another one I have.  After pushing numbers to get to a department that probably isn't right, entering a password, I then get through to this department, only to be told "Sorry, this number is barred...."  It then hangs up.   >:( >:( >:(

I've just sent an email, and I've been told it could take seven days to call me back. ::)  Bloody outrageous.

 Well, a few years ago I was able to buy a new computer just for me thanks to an inheritance ( I've been using the wife's castoffs since the early 90s), it was a beast, dual quad core xeon Macintosh.. Thursday night it dies, not the drive, graphics card, memory or power but the blasted motherboard.  A fix or replacement just isn't feasible.  On the plus side, the same darling wife says we can get an iMac for me, which will be lovely, but the beast is no more  >:(

You'll like the iMac and if you really need to run any windows programs you can install windows7 in boot camp,a lot better than running a virtual windows software package and about the same price.
The telephone support is also first class.

I run Anyrail,Solid edge 2D cad,and an old Photoshop program on mine.

We may be an angry lot with more pages in this thread than in the Happy Thread, but we're more musical than both of them (58 pages) :music:
Doh! I think this should have been in the Happy Thread ::)

Got to work this morning to find a Mini blocking one of the gates. While I was unlocking the gate and opening the one that wasn't blocked they decided to move the mini, hitting my car in the process then driving off. >:(

As I work right beside a railway station I shall be keeping an eye out now to see if it is a regular drop off and have some words (most of which will not be printable here.)

Sadly no. It was too dark and they turned the lights off until they were up the road a bit. I was actually in the yard when they done it, heard the noise, went back to my car as they hurriedly drove off.

Still worth phoning the police, you know it was a mini, have an idea of the colour,  and you will at least get a crime report number for your insurers if you have any damage to get repaired
