Pokemon Go loses 10m users. Meh.The work place has a new WiFi policy. If you BYOD, it boots you out after 20 mins or when you move to a new node. Its very annoying.

Bit late on the bandwagon with this isn't it? https://t.co/pRtUGZY508Why are 12 year old space-ship mileage #vans so bloody expensive? £2000 for a knackered Transit? No thanks.News update: contrary to the internet, you cannot use a WH Smith gift card to buy a lottery ticket - although this isn't in the T&CsOfficial news: I just ordered a new coat. I've been umming and ahhing about a field jacket for a year and found the perfect one. Asda. £35.Because this was a good idea (no one thought, ever). https://t.co/RXYxs0roWb#WednesdayWisdom https://t.co/jCSF3f753I

.@EE that's amazing, considering you don't know the details of the previous tenant or the address. Psychic powers!Collective time talking to @EE and @bt_uk now about the three hour mark. All I want is a phone and internet.It should be simple to get a new phone and broadband fitted, but not if .@EE won't release the previous tenants line it isn't.
