Comment Re: Accidental bugs? (Score 2) 211

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

There are too many stupid people in the world. Stupidity isn't necessarily a permanent thing: it could be caused by time constraints, personal problems or even lack of/too much caffeine. Or just because one doesn't think of the problem from start to finish.

But then this could be what "they" want you to believe :)

I have the option of working 7-3 or 10-6 (or anything in between). More businesses need this flexibility! It would also lessen the peaks in traffic. It would also nullify any benefit of DST.

I used to work a 15 minute walk from the beach. I would have an early morning swim before work in summer. :)

Exactly. Telstra (Australia's largest mobile carrier, and operator of one of the largest networks (by area covered) in the world) has already signalled the end of 2G. Their 3G network has a far larger coverage than their 2G: Optus 2G covers a greater area than Telstra 2G (Optus 3G still has about a million square kilometres to catch up to Telstra 3G though).

Nobody said computers were going to be polite.
