Hello World!

Why can't supermarkets just limit themselves to selling food, instead of selling all sorts of different products and launching half a dozen extra savings programs? I stood in the queue today behind a woman who had just a few cartons of milk and a loaf of bread, and as I was in quite a hurry I was hoping she'd be done quickly. But no. After all her stuff had already been rung up, her eyes got caught by the special offer of extra-cheap compost and field flowers, so the whole queue had to move back to allow her to get what seemed like at least 200 litres of compost. Then she had to search for ages for both her Air Miles-card and the supermarket-specific Bonus Card, and also wanted to buy special savings stamps. Then when she finally was done and the girl behind the counter went on with my stuff, of course the woman first had to store all her cards, meaning the entire converyor belt was filled by her ten tons of garden dirt, and so I had to fill my shopping bag at superhuman speed with all the stuff the cashiere handed me. And the worst part is that what annoys me most is that with all the hurry and the staring eyes of the people behind me, I forgot to use my own Air Miles card. Sigh.

In other news, apologies go out to those of you who are running TrekToday Headlines on your sites - as you may have already noticed, a slight bug has appeared in the script that updates the headlines, in some cases causing a few more headlines to appear on your page than there should. I suspect the reason lies in the code that removes the 'Site Columns' headlines from the list, and will be trying to track down and remove the bug first thing tomorrow morning.
