I got a good old chuckle out of xkcd today and thought I would share:
So, we’ve launched ‘freesat’ today. It seems to be going well, people are are trying to find the product and the product is starting to appear in shops. I hope it does well, the Humax Foxsat-HD is such a nice product and I am proud of our work on it. I keep getting asked when the Humax freesat PVR will be here, well that will have to wait until it is ready.
Well, it made me laugh…
I am just reading an article by Bill Thompson of the BBC:
"Unfortunately, however, like many other communities that seem to be happy and relaxed but are in turmoil just beneath the surface, eBay is more like the fictional murder-prone village of Midsomer than the perfect market."
I loved that line. Apparently sellers will no longer be able to leave negative feedback for buyers, I am not sure if this is a good idea.
Thanks to my brother for spotting that the comment section of my site didn’t work. Hope I’ve fixed it, darn SEF module was doing too good a job and the Comment module had a stray ./ a mixture for disaster.
I would like to publically thank (as much as I can here) the company "Learning with Linden ".
They have sorted me out with the brackets for a projection screen that was delivered in a poor state by the vendor. The vendor has been difficult to deal with on this problem, but looking over the delivered package I noticed a name on it that included a model number. By googling that name I found "Learning with Linden" and from there I was able to find the product.
I was able to call them, explain my situation and after they verified I had purchased the product they said they would send me the brackets tonight in the post! Wonderful, well, I will see and perhaps update you.
To update you, it went up, it doesn’t look great, but then again you get what you pay for in life, and it didn’t cost much.

Ah, heck, it might not be 24Mb but its enough for me.
Ok, I confess, I went to see the Spice Girls at the O2 Arena last night. It wasn't my fault, the man with the free VIP lounge with free hospitality (inc. bar!) made me do it! It was an impressive sight, but I certainly wasn't there for the music!
P.S. I will try and get Angel to write more about the experience.
