Makes me angry when I'm looking in Ebay or any other online site and the picture has a caption saying "click to enlarge" and all that happens is the same size picture appears in a new window.

pure torture
running in is so you get used to the noise, oops, to bed the gears down properly

You mean like "5 pound" 8)

Allow me to make you more annoyed. The official plural is "euro". I refer you to

Should that not be "Friday beers"?

not sure- try it with cheese and cheeses - the s suggests many different kinds, whereas with beer I like to stick to the same one all night.

which probably buggers up my whole point about the s on the end of euro!!!

Thanks to my recent radioactive iodine treatment, my immune system is shot and I have somehow managed to catch flu. Sore throat, cough, aches and pains, etc, good some days and rubbish others. Hope it is just "man flu", but it's something I could do without.

Sorry to hear of your problems Kipper but brought to mind a conversation between my wife and mother in law "David's not well", "Oh man flu I suppose", "No he's ill he's not drinking" Still love her!

You can be very tolerant of almost anything, and Siri (for that is the iPhone lady's name) will drive you to cursing the air blue.  You will end up telling her that she has no real purpose and is a waste of silicon and germanium in no uncertain terms.  That is not Apple's best user interface!

Ask her what she's wearing though, and she will reply variously...

"I'm not that kind of assistant, Mark", or
"Aluminosilicate glass and stainless steel, nice, huh?"
"Why do people keep asking me this".

There are some very funny mix ups too... check out www.whysiriwhy.com to see just how bad this virtual assistant can be.

What on earth is happening to the quality of driving nowadays?

Does no-one know how to use their indicators on their cars anymore or do they not realise they have them fitted?!
The amount of times drivers suddenly slow up for apparently no reason then veer off into another street or road with no indication or anything. As for roundabouts.....who knows which exit they're going to use?

When I start my revolution they'll be first up against the wall. No cigarette or anything.. ;)

Gosh......that was therapeutic.........
