All over the world people are reading this headline in their feedreaders and thinking ‘Oooh great – some things that are making Dave angry. I wonder what they are.’ So, in no particular order:
My bank have charged me £171 in one week in charges. All because I am incompetent. To be fair I have phoned up and they have halved this, but I still feel obliged to tell the world so that those of you who, like me, are administrationally challenged will remember that your bank is your enemy, not your friend. They prey on the stupid and those who suffer from chronic ineptitude, of whom I am a prime example.
2) The Firefox web browser
I spent the best part of a good long while this morning composing what was probably the best blog post ever to be uploaded to the internet. Then suddenly I get the dreaded ‘Firefox has experienced a problem and we are not going to save anything you have written’ window and it is all lost. Yes, I have all the updates and latest versions and patches and upgrades and service packs and ‘anti this and thats’ known to humankind. And yes, I am going to keep using Firefox because I like it, but I feel that the world should know that life with Firefox is not plain sailing. It is like sailing on a day with not much wind when there are a lot of midges and you have forgotten the sandwiches.
