My last silly purchase was damn Gateway E 155C Tablet PC. The thing was about 700 bucks, and 2 weeks in the touchscreen went, and then the screen its self. So i got the bloody thing repaired, and a week later the touchscreen wen on it AGAIN. SO ....... Don't buy Gateway. Oh well, my next purchase will be a Dell Latitude XT.

A Peugeot 307. Grrr.


I am SO fed up with my 307.
Everything keeps on failing on it.
I've had awful problems with the brakes this year and last year - a recurring fault with the ABS which ended up costing stupid amounts of money to fix and scaring me silly into the bargain. And the indicator stalk isn't so much self-cancelling as self-deciding-to-indicate-in-the-opposite-direction-when-I-come-out-of-a-corner. The 5-cd changer is dead, the power steering has an untraceable leak (but the fluid slowly ebbs away over the course of about 9 months) and the fuel economy's pretty rubbish. Also the computer is wildly overoptimistic about everything and told me that I had enough petrol to go 30 miles left in the tank... just as I ran out of fuel after midnight one night coming back home from a gig. I will NEVER buy a Peugeot again.

At the last MOT I was failed for that as 'a control issue'. Despite it having got through three times before. A totally crappy design flaw that cost nearly 300 quid to have fixed.
I was a victim of goose-flirting the other day.
This bleeding great goose came up to me and wanted a light.
I said no.
Goose, there\'ll be no flirting today.

One can never have enough Beano....

BTW my lad started playing a demo of the most recent Banjo & Kazooie game the other day....it is now on his Xmas list. Those tunes and cheery colours make a pleasant change from the constant drab aural barrage of "Resident BioGears of Far Fallout Duty War Carnage 2"!

You think you own me
You miss the point completely
