The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Flame of The Week From: arthur pewtey

Subject: re: When is a speed camera not a speed camera?

And this tedious rant about speed cameras has what to do with IT? If I wanted to read this sort of self-serving drivel I'd buy a copy of the Daily Mail.

Could someone remind this cabbage that driving in excess of the recognised speed limits should be confined to his PlayStation and not encouraged on public roads where it kills/injures hundreds of thousands of people in the UK each year.

Sadly, this 'article' falls well below your usual journalistic standards. Could you persuade Mr Haines to do an article on use of IT in mortuaries - it may give him a more well-rounded view than he currently has.
