I am so f*cking sick of technology that doesn't work...

So I logged on to the new access thingy. It works yes, but all the re-setting of defaults, options, views etc has taken bloody ages. Grrrr

If you must advertise your personal training via facebook, please make sure you spell & grammar check first. Or is it supposed to be written in dutch?

To the morbidly obese woman at work who sits near me (honestly she has to be 30 stone). Why are you lecturing the other women in the office not to use sunbeds becuase they cuase cancer, when you are killing yourself with mars bars and cup cakes on a daily basis.

Dear woman at Oxford Circus - I have never seen so much botox in one face. I can't believe you think it actually looks good?

Still, at least you know what you're going to look like when you've been embalmed :-O

You haven't spoken to me in the year and a half since we started uni, so why speak to me now you don't understand the coursework. Piss off!

You can 'help' them... It would be their fault if they didn't realise that you gave the wrong answer

Last week, I tried the new access thingy and wasted lots of time. This week you've upgraded to Office 2010. Do you realise how much time I could have wasted today?? I went back to the old system so I could get some work done.

It's all got much too complicated and it just isn't going to work.

Too much going on. I may need someone to help, or stop piling more pressure on

Game of Thrones - sorry, don't get it. Maybe if you're ten, but heck you're a grown man.
Ditto "bored of the rings" or whatever its called

Your daughter is being selfish and a bit mean to my daughter at school - but not quite nasty enough to warrant making a big issue of it.

Tbh, Garmin, I don't see any issue at all with the usb data transfer and recharging cable that my old 305 uses. But you've gone over to this fancy new-fangled Ant agent so fair enough, I'll install it.

So I need Windows Media Player ver 11. Dunno why to run a Garmin GPS watch, but okay. Download. You want to validate my Windows. Okay. Click here to run the ActiveX control to validate your Windows. Done. Downloaded, installed a music and DVD playing software that I didn't want. And reboot. Can I install Ant now?

So you want to set up something called .NET Framework. Okay. Download and install. Twiddle fingers, tum di tum, another half an hour wasted. Reboot.

So, double-click on the Ant setup software. Seems to install okay. Off to the test page. Device not found. Garmin Communicator plugin not present. You could have said I needed that beforehand, but never mind. Download. Yes please, I want to install the plugin. Close Firefox. Reboot once again.

Start up the Ant software. No device found. Go to pairing menu on my new 310xt and set the Ant also to pairing. They pair. Whoopee. I mean, some instructions might have been helpful with all this.

That said, it seems to work well enough but I still can't see what was the problem with the old-fashioned usb cable. Oh well, such is progress.

Game of Thrones may have a fantasy setting, but it's very far removed from being a childs book based on it's content. Most definitely adult literature and also awesome.

Never seen Game of Thrones admittedly but I have actually heard it described as being "for teenage boys who can't get girlfriends".

Why is the same company called 'Autoglass' over here, yet called 'Carglass' in Germany ..... yet we have Cars over here, and Germans have Autos?

Dear cat - eat your bloody food!

The enlightened folk refer to those people as morons, but our main concern is Martin finishing writing the last two books before he pops his clogs.

So you've started a thread on a national running internet forum, about an interesting-sounding marathon somewhere - presumably because you want to spark debate about it.

Does it really not cross your simple mind to put the date of the event in the title, or on the first post.... or anywhere on the first page...  or indeed on any blooming page?

If people are going to have to Google (yet again), on the off chance that they might still be interested after having identified the date and location, then a lot aren't going to bother. You're going to lose a lot of lost of people.  Understand?  Or did you just want to have a debate with yourself?
