OT why do they do this to us? by Bill Wright[_3_]
Hil's iPhone has been demanding to download an update for weeks, so this teatime, in a fit of insanity, I agreed. Two hours later the phone was all but useless.

Pitcairn Islands by Brian-Gaff
Lost me there, I guess you had to have heard it. One does wonder why people populate some islands in the world. I mean what is the point of the Azores, for example other than as a military refuelling site. Brian -- From the Sofa of Brian Gaff Reply address is active Remember, if you don't like where I post

How come people want to throw stuff away all the time by Brian-Gaff
I appropriated a band three wide band aerial. In quite good nick, but the braid holding screw had seized.
