    When did you (mostly) stop buying things?

    About 25 years ago I was forced to go on a course on ISO 9000 as it was then. The guy giving the initial introduction gave an example of quality control. You want to produce boxes of matches. The specification that you give to the guy who actually makes them says that there should be 40 in a box +- 2. The specification also say that one in five should break when being used. That is quality control

    Bombs sent to Hildebeast and Hussein

    I read in one of the papers this morning that the filler was a mixture of sulphur and bits of glass. You might get a smelly fire at best.

    Printer irritation - Samsung CLX 3305

    I've got a Brother HL-1440 that I bought about 17 years ago. £200 then, probably paid for itself several times over by not having to replace dried up ink jet cartridges.

    Curious, the current Tory party's greatest asset is the Labour leader and the Labour party's greatest asset is the Tory leader.

    Over the Border (Brexit thread)

    The funny thing is that the Irish customs are still a PITA if you live in the Republic despite there being no border posts. Try driving a UK registered car in the Republic if you are a resident of the Republic.
