The computer has landed. I know, I know, it's great news. Tech guru Michael is the man wot dun the business and now the thing works like a charm. New DVD burner, power supply, mother's bawd, CPU, Windows XP, more ports than you can poke a memory stick at. In short, the works. And speedy? Zing - the bastard boots up in about five seconds. My laptop almost - not quite - boots up in five minutes. So, it's all good. (Who invented "It's all good"? That phrase annoys me.)
Speaking of booting - Any Given Sunday. Near the end of each show Mick Molloy slumps back in his reinforced chair and mumbles "We'll be back after the break to boot this baby home." That annoys me, too.
PS: My rigorous testing has confirmed that 99% of ringtones, apart from sounding completely stupid, also sound like To Cut A Long Story Short. Even The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Ringtones surpass all levels of annoyedness.
