'Negotiations are expected to continue to the bert last minute.'

 

Another touch typist in a hurry who clearly can't proofread. This one from RNZ.

When you create a review for a new smartphone using one laptop and email to yourself using Office 365 online then delete the original document... The email is not sent, the document is gone.

When I have to go into a store to buy Taylor Swift's new album on CD because it isn't online anywhere.

 

*Anywhere without DRM.

It seems that it'll be on iTunes on Sunday (with four songs available now).

 

Meanwhile, this "Milky Top" chocolate has the milk chocolate on the *bottom*.

When you receive an email notification from your credit rating service to find out a drop in your rating because Genesis Energy reported you in default by 29 days or more.

 

I've paid my Genesis Energy bill online, via credit card, the moment I received the bill - a couple of weeks ahead of the due date.

 

Then the credit rating agency says it will take 30 days or more to "investigate".

The last form I filled in online that asked me for a mobile number, I simply put in 027 000 0000. It accepted that. laughing

When the Taylor Swift album you bought legally is totally corrupted on the last 4 tracks forcing you to pirate it anyway in FLAC.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one this kind of thing happens to.

Laptop touchpads with tap-to-click turned on  (especially when the bl**dy synaptics software thinks it's a wheel mouse and you can't turn it off).
