Xerox have shafted me by withdrawing support for our fantabulous dc332 - it's only 15 years old, why soooo hasty?

so forced out into the scary procurement world.
All fixed with the superb HP Officejet Pro x476dw Multifunction Printer (snappy name to remember)
£275, no toner coblas, and i know a man who can supply ink at half price !

it really is a great machine - super for network scanning, printing etc......

PS. HP->, please send the commission cheque to my HSBC account, Geneva.      tnx

Budget 2015

The Chancellor is going to tell us....
"The sun is starting to shine and we are fixing the roof"

riiight, how about
"Rain lies ahead, so we will fix the roof beforehand" or
"I forecast sunny weather, so i'm getting the builders in to fix the holes made by the last builders G Brown & Co. Labour Solutions Limited"

we've drunk the first 2 capps., off to the garage, then back to office to write the renowned REAL Budget Guide.

Just been on bucking bronco,  - the top floor of a 277 bus from Canary Wharf to Hackney, no need to go all the way to Alton Towers.

Please Boris come for a ride, and you will feel what i mean.

how great was the poppies 'sculpture' at Tower of London.
The War was appalling but this was an inspirational tribute to the sacrifice they made.

It might help raise awareness of how important it is to avoid allowing situations getting out of hand. - Luckily we managed this in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Turkey, Israel, Palestine, Bosnia, Kosovo, Sudan, Libya, Egypt, Ukraine, Chechnya.......

Laptops Direct

bought a laptop from them, it's fine - it works

but what's with oppressing punters with an 0871 telephone number ?

give us a REAL number e.g. 0203 so we can call from our mobiles without being raped.

customer-hostility lures supreme.......................
