Interpreting Global Flight Maps

nozzo Re:Eurocentric (93 comments)

years back I installed a program on a secretary's Windows 3.1 system. The new icon shifted the Microsoft Word icon to the left one place. Half hour later I get the director calling me saying the secretary was in tears because she had deadlines and I had 'deleted' Word from her system.

When I ran around and pointed at the icon she was ok again - all good to go. I even dragged it back to it's original place so I wouldn't be bothered again.

The ease in which some people get in to a confused state cannot be overstated.

So let's not mess with maps too much - North is at the top by convention.

British ISP Bombards Users With Deleted Emails

nozzo Re:I'd be pretty pissed (134 comments)

Well they must have tested this thoroughly beforehand - and they would have known this would happen. It would have been courteous to fess-up and warn folks beforehand. Just good customer service.

FAA Pushed To Review Ban On Electronics

nozzo on the other hand (369 comments)

I was on a flight just coming in to land and the guy next to me answered his ringing phone - I almost grabbed it off him and stamped on it but as I'm British I would rather the plane went out of control and die in a fireball than to make a fuss. Other people tutted at him.
However nothing happened and here I am typing this today!
