Someone please stop the crap..

At someone from Stu's work's recommendation, we made a special trip out to Fyshwick to look in the Fyshwick Newsagency.  They close at 12:30pm.  We arrived at 12:38pm.

!@#$^ !?!?

Seriously who the f@#% closes at 12:30 on a Saturday??  I was so pissed off.  And they were still inside and just looked at me when I looked hopefully at them.  I swear they will *never* get my business.

Fortunately Officeworks had most of what we needed to get our invitations printed.  The main paper we used is kinda shimmery and looks quite good.  The only downer was not being able to get similarly shimmery backing card.  So it's kinda boring.  We're gonna post them from NSW on Monday.

I also asked Officeworks about a hard drive we'd sent for repair/replacement *last year*.  It had bad blocks on it so we wanted it replaced.  But after we'd formatted it, it doesn't show up as having bad blocks anymore does it?  Officeworks don't understand the concept of removing and recreating the partition before doing this, even after I told them.  After I had talked to them in December, it sounded like they might actually get the drive replaced, but then I never heard back from them.  When I picked it up today, the card in it just said "Tested, ok".  What a bunch of buttholes.  Of course it's more than a year old now, so chances of getting it replaced are pretty low.  *sigh*

And Stu's fish-eating test appears to be a failure :(
