In control of the trains - but not the timetables

"We are sorry that train departure information is currently unavailable on this display... we are working with our supplier to resolve this"

Funny old world, innit?

Phishing spelling

Phishing - sending spam emails in the hope a hapless recipient will respond with their online bank details - is spelled with a ph because... er... well, anyway, it is.

Today I've received yet another.

This one tells me "We detected irregular activity on your HSBC Internet banking account on 11/01/2011."

Very irregular, because I don't have one of those. But I digress.

The penultimate line reads "We ask that you allow at least 72 hours for the case to be investigated and we strongly recommend to verefy (sic) your account in that time."

Yes, the sender put the 'sic' there themselves.

Hello, 2011

I've started 2011 by finishing 'Replay' by Ken Grimwood. It almost seems to replace the need for resolutions.
