    • I reckon FB is cool. I think have about 30 friends, but the thing is they are actual friends who I am interested in what they have to say. I have about 50 friend requests from colleagues and people trying to get the friend count up. I don't deny their friend request, just pretend I don't understand Facebook friend requests. When I'm travelling FB is great to keep in touch with people and upload amusing photos and anecdotes in a couple of clicks. Much better that mucking around with email and attaching photos.

(Even though I was informed by my departed brother's musical tastes) No. But it is a reminder that even cultural icons die and it's like a bit of what little remains of your youth being taken away and mortality just a bit closer.

        On the other hand, I don't get why people get so butt-hurt about the regular bandwagoning on social media and public displays of faux grief. It happens.
        I was genuinely emotionally upset over Lemmy & Robin Williams, Bowie not so much grief but a melancholy feeling that one of the pioneers of modern music & champion of the weird & different has passed.

            • People too stupid to pick up a camera but who do it anyway.

              The glass thing you stick to the front of your camera is called a lens, the plural of this is lenses.

              It's not a len, or a lense, and the plural certainly fucking isn't lens's or lense's

                        Why is it that ONLY YOU have 500 million fucking departments that don't speak to each other and no one knows who you are from an account number or what you require without having to jump through so many hoops as to be a trained circus performer.

                          It could be worse, try Optus At least with Telstra most of the time you can understand the operators/call centre staff

                            I'm sick of Telstra, I tried to get a messagebank address changed to Vic from WA. Still not done. I even told them in the system how to do it (having worked there years ago). Sent from pillar to post, I think the call ended on transfer 10 when I threatened to take a Telstra Store manager hostage and get it resolved properly. Tried on line and they fucking fob you off there as well. Wankers.

                              When phones get left in my taxi, I hunt down the owners.

                              For phones that are locked (ie I can't access previous numbers and SMSes), I've figured out to remove the SIM card, call the phone company (logo is on the card), quote the serial number on the SIM and the phone company can look up whose account it is.

                              The call centre person then calls either an alternative number (ie office or home), or recent commonly dialled numbers.

                              My details get passed along, and the phone gets returned to the owner promptly.

                              The last two have been Telstra phones. I've had to argue and insist on going through various departments and supervisors to convince them that this can be done.

                              The most recently one - 30 minutes arguing about it. She refused to put me through to a supervisor. Eventually, she put me on hold. I put the phone on speaker mode, and left it on my desk to see how long it was before she got back to me. I gave up at the 180 minute (ie 3 hour) mark.

                              The previous one took three phone calls over a weekend, at a minimum of 40 minutes each. The phone was ultimately returned to a very grateful lawyer (ie corporate data on the phone).

                              Found an Optus phone a year ago. The call centre person was as helpful as possible. Phone was returned to its owner that night.

                              Damn shame I can't get Optus coverage in Como.
                              One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

                              My waterbed broke this morning. Oh, I don't have a waterbed. Bugger.
