That is why we need to fight to keep our fucking libraries open. Aspatria Library (my nearest) has closed down. If you Google opening hours it refers you to Wigton Library which is fucking miles away. :angry:

On Twitter recently, Alan Sugar posted that Amstrad put an IBM compatible PC on the market in 1986 for 399 pounds at a time when home pc's retailed for 2000.

Someone in the replies said the DWP were still using these.

I thought they were being sarcastic...but seeing your comments here about them still using faxes and not email, I'm not so sure. :rolleyes:

The WiFi here in Sheffield is very poor today. I have been trying to warn Greasy Roads but lost my connection. I shall have to deal with his indescretions later.

Libraries are seriously underfunded due to government cuts, they should be charging approximately 29.336% more to break even, so don’t come here suggesting they are profiteering.

As if things weren't bad enough just now, I thought we'd had a minor earthquake in Paignton today.

Last night's attempted break-in.

Hurt my hand. :angry:

And I didn't succeed in breaking the lock on dad's :wanker2: shed, where he's started hoarding his booze, to hide it from me. :grrr:
