    From your posts, that's all that matters ... don't see anything deeper than
    that is considered.

    Do I get a medal?

    YES!!! Here you are.

    Oooh. Thank you!



    (Goon Show)

    Ice up hose (brrr!) tearing the English language to shreds like we do on
    a.h.puns would seem obnoxious to many people. I've found in the past that
    it's a big mistake to make a pun out of what someone says, because they
    assume you're taking the mickey out of them personally rather than out of
    the English language in general. It's a concept that can be really difficult
    to get across, especially to a stupid person.

    My mum used to say, 'You've gotta laugh or you'll cry' so wherever Fred
    Tehbot is posting from, praps he and his fellow posters need to laugh a
    little more.

    And *I* can't help laughing at a thread about 10 feet long all negative
    except for two helpful posts on using the industrial grade CD-Rs I was
    palmed off with.

    If anyone thinks the warning was unjustified, I've been on to my local
    Trading Standards Department and they agreed with me that selling such disks
    as if they're retail grade is misrepresenting the product and they're going
    to take the matter up with PC World, whose doors or towels I intend not to
    darken again! Bunch of spivs!!

    Anyway - that puts the lid on it!

  10. What's really sad is that those inferior quality CD-Rs were
    manufactured by a secret consortium owned by George W. Bush
    and Dick Cheney and were intended to be distributed to black
    Americans in New Orleans. When Katrina struck, the only thing
    to do was secretly sell them to Tony Blair, who plotted to
    distribute them among unemployed Londoners. Thanks to you,
    this outrage has been exposed and the world is a better place.

    Narr. It's one of the 'A' Team who's been knighted.

    He's also been drinking coffee for far too long. He says he's Mister Tea for

    BTW. Used six of those disks now with two complete failures - so they're not
    too good.

    Oh say can you see
    Dubbya's staring at me.
    I'd better lock all my doors
    I-in case he invades me!

    (Fancy having a National Anthem that begins with slang!)

    Narr. He ended up in charge of a CD factory and it was his sadistic sense of
    humoUr that lead to the idea of not printing anything on 'em so as to
    confuse people into puttin em in the drive upside down.

    It was really a cunning plan, actually, to make people think their CD
    burners had packed up so as they'd buy new ones!

    And BTW, when I first posted this warning, I got over twenty really vicious
    flames in reply on 24hoursupport.helpdesk and only one useful message
    pointing out that you can tell which way up to put them in because there's a
    circular ridge in the middle of the recording side.

    Shows what the majority of people go onto that group for, don't it?

    And actually, the disks weren't as bad as I feared. I did get more failures
    than with properly branded ones but because they were dirt cheap, it didn't
    really matter. With a rotten old 2x drive, all I lost was some time. And no,
    the failures were not from me puttin em in upside down!

    And what the hell was this doin on uk.local.london? <trimmed>

    Just coz I'm in London don't mean every Londoner with a PC wants to see our
    ravings! :eek:)

    he says, "¡Es bueno! Before the game start everyone sing, 'Jose can you
    see?' and some other things."
