  1. Can you drink during work hours?

    From the hacking-off thread, just curious if some people are still allowed to drink during lunch times. If yes, what do you do that has such lax morals? :winking:

    Things that have impressed you today

    An opposite thread for the thing that are hacking you off today. Bought a watch via Amazon a couple of weeks ago. Although apparently water resistant up to 100 metres, it misted up after a swim in a 1.5m pool and the chronos stopped working. Was expecting a drawn out returning process but was...

    African cup of Nations

    I have watched bits and bobs of the African cup of Nations and for me it's the worst football I've ever seen. Lots of hacking, misplaced passes and poor finishing. What does everyone else think?

    What is making you smile or laugh today?

    I feel we need this to go alongside the hacking you off thread. I'll start. My journey into work so far has involved me stepping heavily on the toes of someone on the minibus. She was wearing flip flops and I know she was in pain, she made that quite plain to me in Cantonese. Over here we have...
  5. Eh?

    Can someone look on P3 of the "papering over the cracks" thread and see if there's anything vaguely to do with hacking, as NR firewall is blocking it. :stunned:
  6. Osborne + Coke + Hookers

    So Guido Fawkes and Australian News Channel ABC reckon that tonight it will drop that George Osborne did cocaine and slept with hookers when he was younger. Apparently this story has been around a while and he denied it, but it's even more interesting because it has an Andy Coulson/NOTW link to...

    Auntie can't get mouth around clock

    Not a lot to be amused about of late - but I rather like this BBC story about a talkative Johnson: Auntie can't get mouth around clock

    Question What is making you happy today?

    Instead of what is hacking you off, what is bringing a smile to your face, or pleasing you today? For me, I'm chuffed for the people of Wootton Bassett, for the Prime Minister has confirmed today that the Queen has for the first time in 100 years granted the use of the Royal title, and Wootton...

    What is hacking you off today?

    1) Keypad tones on a mobile phone on an otherwise quiet train. :thumbdown:
  11. Phone Hacking - Do W Care?

    Now maybe it is just me, but I really don't care about the phone hacking story. Yes, it seems as though the law may have been broken, and anyone found guilty should receive the punishment they deserve, but should it really be dominating the news agenda to the extent it is though? To me it is...

    Under 100 - woohoo !

    After about 8 years of hacking around very good golf courses courtesy of a corporate credit card I finally broke 100 in style today shooting 96 and 42 for the back 9 at Belfairs with 4 pars and 3 bogeys. Unbelievable Jeff !!!
  13. PS3 "Other OS"

    Don't know whether anyone has seen this, or whether it actually effects anyone, but news was recently released that on the 1st April update Sony are to remove their "Other OS" area from the PS3. Personally this doesn't effect me at all, and Sony are saying it only effect's a very small...

    Question Your experiences of taking the other half to the football...

    I was talking to my boss today who failed to convince his wife to come with him and watch the Chelsea vs Liverpool CL match last night, as she thought it'd be a 'dull game'. But it reminded me of my own experiences when trying to convince the better half of what makes going to the football so...
  15. The Alan McCormack Problem

    The Alan McCormack Problem I think we have all had Alan McCormack long enough to know that he is a serious issue for Southend. I just want to cover the facts to make sure everyone agrees with me and then we'll get on to discussing other things. The GOOD about Alan McCormack - The man is a...

    vWe Are Back

    The Trust Website is now back on line. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused whilst the hacking problem was sorted out. We were not alone in being hit last night, in fact we were in exalted company as Sony and several Government Sites were also hacked by the same bunch of...
