Did anyone see Michael Winner on Parkinson on Saturday?
He was promoting his new book "The Fat Pig Diet"!!!!
Essentially, the basis of the diet is that you can eat what you want but just cut down on the amount (sounds too logical).
Or as Jasper Carrott used to say " The reason people are fat is that this hole (pointing to mouth)is bigger than this hole (pointing to backside)"

I've not read the full patent yet, don't know if I want to!

Anyway, maybe we should be more concerned about this!

Why am I not surprised to learn that Automatic Number Plate Recognition was invented in Britain? frown

I sometimes wonder if I'm in the wrong line of work. Perhaps it would have been better to have shifted into a more thriving industry. You know, one with loads of resources available for the development of exciting new kit!

Take it or leave it but the next 10 years of technical progress is sitting on shelves waiting for the market to catch up!

PS why do a company like fluke make great kit but their PC interface software is so so older-saurus!

I was pondering earlier on today (as one does) about what impact the web has had (or is having, or will have ... whatever) on the practise of the tech support of in-service medical equipment. Just imagine, even being out in a remote part of the world, as long as you've got a connection to the web (not always guaranteed, of course), you've got a reasonable chance of getting some help, availability of spares, .pdf manuals, and all the rest. Not quite such a lonely existence out in the bush these days, I should imagine. On the other hand, if you still can't access the web ... smile

When I worked out in the field the problem was always that of not being able to carry all the spares one needed, having to order the bit and then having to do a return journey for a 10 minute job (often involving a 6 hour round trip).
