Websites with needless music

March 31st, 2007 No comments

Aaarrgghh!! One of my pet hates is websites which suddenly burst into music. It’s annoying when you’re at home and the music you actually are listening to is suddenly ruined by the website’s own musak. It’s even worse in a work environment.

The most heinous crime, however, is not to include any way of switching the damn noise off.

Snow? What Snow?

February 8th, 2007 No comments

Well surprise surprise, London and the home counties are affected by snow, so that means it’s national headline news.

I woke this morning to a clear (but cold morning). I didn’t even have to clear the windows on the car, but according to BBC Breakfast, it’s the end of the world. They’re even talking about snowfall in centimetres. Is this to make it sound more than it really is? 5cm sounds more impressive than a measly 2 inches. The rest of Europe must be laughing at the pathetic Brits.

If the tables were turned and the North of England and Scotland were covered in snow, then it would hardly get a mention. The Scots must be even more annoyed at this southern centric reporting.

The sooner the BBC move up to Manchester, the sooner we can start to reverse this southern bias in reporting.
