It sounds like the lead singer is being burned to death to a background of (actually, very good) electric guitar.

Atreyu, apparently.  And Cannibal Corpse.  Ewwww.

I packed my laptop in a bag to bring home as I'm going away tomorrow, left it next to my pannier while I got changed for the commute and then left it there, despite picking up my pannier. Dummy

Self. I know you've never seen a left sided drivechain but when buying a freewheel called 'southpaw' it might men it works the other way round!

I now have a freewheel that only goes backwards  :facepalm:

Oh bugger.  Having left my decent front light in Waleslandshire I'm going to have to pop over the road to BloodyEvans at lunch time.
I just HATE going in there and having to go through the bloody "You don't need my post code you bloody morons" argument every time

Just a mathematical query.

If I am number                              zero                           in the queue, as the (badly) automated call handling system informs me, how does that work?  I mean, if there is a queue and it's just me, then surely I'd be number                         one              ?

Also, if I am privileged to be at the front of this metaphysical queue, then why am I waiting So Sodding Long?

Surely it's more a philosophical question?  If you are number zero, do you actually exist?

Perhaps you're lost in translation (mathematically speaking)?

Computers, and people who spend too much time getting intimate with them, count from zero, for perfectly sensible reasons.  The writers of the badly automated call handling system probably forgot to convert to human (indeed they may not have actually met one for years).

Of course, if I were writing a call handling system, I'd set it up to lie about people's position in the queue, and make them feel like they were making progress.  A bit like traffic lights with placebo buttons on the pedestrian crossings that do nothing to the timings.  It would also be XKCD/806 compliant.
