The Hogfather - Part One

Just watched the first part of the TV rendition of Terry Pratchett's Hogfather.

I was cynical about it.

I was wrong.

It's blummin marvelous.

Ho Ho Ho.

Novatech - the fall from grace

I used to hold "Novatech", the computer/etc retailer in very high regard.

However, things change.

Today I ordered a keyboard and some blank DVD media for "Fast-Track" collection. I paid. Everything was in stock. I received an email telling me to come and pick up my order in 30 minutes time.

I drove there (luckily it isn't far or I would probably still be there, fuming).

The keyboard wasn't in stock.

"But.. your website said 'one in stock', and told me to come and collect it. This suggests that you have one."

"Yeah. We do. But its assigned to another order."

Bunch of nobbers.

Gosh. Its been ages.

I haven't blogged anything for ages. Although if you actually read this, you might be grateful for that! It's not that nothing blogworthy has happened - its just that I've been busy and ill.

Avoid Gastric Acid Reflux. It's very nasty. Currently on my 2nd bout in the last six months, and have lost a stone in the last week - it DOES seem to be an efficient way to slim down!

According to today's Sun, Gordon Brown has admitted that he is no good at maths.

We could never have guessed.

His budgets are usually such logical masterpieces that.. oh.. no.. wait.. I meant deceptive masterpieces...
