92 transferring numbers slowly bricking my iPhone

After just under 2 weeks of having my iPhone I have a problem. That is I have made the foolish mistake to transfer my old number from my orange phone to the iPhone O2 sim. The problem being that there is some sort of fault which has no resolution date, nor any way in which I can check to see if it is solved.


Thus I have had over 2 days worth of bricked iPhone. NOT HAPPY.


Looks like my first experience of O2 customer support is both good and bad.


Good. The woman who I spoke to was incredibly helpful and did everything that she could to resolve my issue! And I will get compensation. Time to plan beeding 02 dry.


Bad. She simply couldn't tell me anything useful. Communication is non-existent from the techys to the call centre support teams and as a result anything I really wanted to know couldn't be told to me. Thats nothing new really though... Most tech companies are like that.


Anyone else out there in the great wide internet having issues with this?


Y-Not Weather Forecast

Religion is...

Superficially maybe...


Religion is an exercise for the intellectuals and "the opiate for the masses".


I am listening to 'the forum', a world service podcast, and a discussion comparing gardens to ceramics eventually results in the metaphor being extended to religion. This seems like lazy intellectualism, bringing the uncertain to the uncertain. A unfitting (though similar) pair of metaphors to something that is infinitely able to accommodate any form of through.


Maybe this explains intelligent people who follow religion for the atheist.


This weeks TWiT


Don't get me wrong, I love This Week In Tech. It, and the host Loe Laport, rock. But I have just had to give up listening to the show with more than 30 mins to go on account of the back ground noise.









Just wanted to moan.

Job Title of the Week.


I am doing some work for my dad within the social work sector... Mostly data entry and retrieval of names, emails and phone numbers at the moment.


So look what I should find? There is actually a job title within the London Borough of Harrow's social services called...


Teenage Pregnancy Coordinator.

...Sounds like... Well... Dodgy to be honest.


Is your lappy-top buggered?

Engadget has a rumour posted that many of Nvidia's 8400M/8600 chips are drastically faulty... Humm. Worth keeping an eye on.





Here is a list of the cards that seem to be affected.




Yup, the whole GForce 8 series. Crazy huh?


The most unlikely civil liberties defender of all!

Based around the recent events of David Davis surrendering his position of MP causing a by-election in his constituency. All because the bill to extend pre-charge detention to the ridiculous and horrendous length of 42 days, here is a punk band who have written a (bad-ish) song on the matter.



Not the best ever, I grant you. But I'm very chuffed that someone has actually done this.


Rock on!
