BBC One’s 2017 ‘oneness’ idents are a massive fail

BBC One‘s 2017 ‘oneness’ idents started, officially, on New Year’s Day, but we had an occasional set drolled out over Christmas to lead into specific programmes such as Doctor Who’s Christmas Day episode. For those not familiar with the term, they appear just before a programme starts. No-one’s ever forgiven them since they abandoned the […]

My brand new, but annual, pharmacy check-up

It’s not often, in my advancing years, when I’m invited into a lady’s private chamber, but today it happened. Well, it was at the local pharmacy (or, chemist, in layman’s terms) as I have to top myself up with a variety of tablets from time to time, all as a result of having an aortic […]

Free petrol! But where can I get some?

Free petrol? Have I gone mad? You’d think so, but on walking to work between where I’d parked my car and to the office, I saw a man park outside the bank to take some cash out… and left the engine running. with his back turned, someone could’ve stolen it… if it wasn’t for the […]

Miss Butt? Mrs War Boys? Mr Shufflebottom?

5-year-old kid chastised because she laughed at her teacher having the name of Miss Butt… Really? Who didn’t laugh at their teachers’ names back in the day when they were kids? All the time I was in class, rotund German teacher Mr Patchett was referred to, amongst ourselves, as “Fat shit Patchett”. As far as […]

JM07 DEM – the notorious truck (for me, at least)

If there’s one thing I hate when I’m driving, it’s other road users. There’s too many of them, and almost all of them get right up my nose. Or more accurately, right up my backside. Step forward, Mr JM07 DEM! Yesterday on the M60, I had this from a lorry, yet again. When the traffic’s […]

Nintendo Switch – am I the only one not particularly bothered?

Nintendo Switch – am I the only one not particularly bothered about this new console? I’m not one for multiplayer, and the press release, as detailed by Slashgear, doesn’t say anything about processing power (all I’m interested in), but instead focuses on how you can play the game in the house on minute, and then […]

PS4 Pro vs Xbox One S – some thoughts…

PS4 Pro is due out in November, and Pocket-Lint are reporting that Sony Interactive Entertainment’s executive vice president of hardware engineering department Masayasu Ito has stated to Pocket Lint that the main reason is that people stream more 4K video than buy the discs. Really? That’s only because the discs are a new thing. Sony […]

Computer says no at B&Q

“Computer says no” at B&Q is what happened today as I set out to buy a number of items from said DIY store. Included in this was four packs of cooker hood bulbs (£3 each) and four packs of spotlights for the kitchen (£8 each, and rather necessary since the cradle that holds six, now […]

The Internet In Stupid Volume 1

The Internet In Stupid is my collection of a number of articles from the internet in the past week which go some way to highlight the amount of shoddy journalism out there from overlong headlines, to headlines that are complete gibberish, to articles which are just utter, twisted rubbish. Maybe they already get so many […]

Facebook likes – the new system is another missed opportunity

Facebook likes. They’re those things that some of us fail to get more than a handful per status update, whereas others seem to fall over them with the frequency of Elizabeth Taylor and husbands. What Facebook have done is to alter them such that when you hover over the ‘like’ button, you can choose between […]
