This must be a call for some new Thread Stats

The thread started on 4 December 2005 meaning it's been going for 589 days.

The average posting rate over that time is 36.75 per day.

At this rate we will hit post 25,000 on 15 October 2007.

26.17% of posts in the thread are by our dear RLacey (though most of those are very short) He is predicted to have made 6,542 posts once we hit post 25,000 (an extra 878 posts)

A thread most controversial, that’s what I want to start
Full of impassioned arguments, of posting from the heart
And for this stimulation all will be thankful to me
On come on everybody it won’t work if you agree

The wit.

My computer is now annoying me. The manufacturers are claiming that I have a different (and far worse) warranty than the one I'm supposedly entitled to, and some temperature tests appear to show my processor temperature rising to something that's a fair bit higher than the temperature it's supposed to run at.

Me=not happy. And how unlucky must I be to get two computers in a row that overheat ?

I wouldn't bother debating the warranty with them at this point then. Legally they obliged to supply you with goods that work for a reasonable period of time. Six months is not reasonable, demand they either repair it or replace it.

The Sale of Goods Act 1979 is your friend, make a point of mentioning it to dispell any thoughts they might have, about being able to pull one over on you.

Indeed.

While the "glue-every-piece-of-crap-you-can-find-on-your-car-and-call-it-art" method doesn't appeal to me, the gold Citroen is truly an inspired work of art.
