Office workers 'risk blood clots'. Time for some office aerobics, as now it's been found via high tech research that sitting around in offices is just as bad for you as sitting around on planes and coaches.

Attraction 'determined by walk'. Women who sway their hips, and men who sway their shoulders, are apparently more attractive. So get swaying!

Lobster hits school dinner menu. A dinner lady who moonlights at weekends on a trawler has brought some of her catch to the school, so the kids get lobster for lunch. Her next plan is to go deer hunting.

Beatles download rumour quashed. The UK music download site Wippit have said in a press release that they'll be the first site to release Beatles' records, although the Beatles have denied it.

Australia headhunts British GPs. After training lots of extra doctors in the UK, and then suffering a glut, Australia are trying to capitalise on said glut by luring the spare doctors to the Aussie countryside. Presumably to cure all the people bitten by spiders, snakes, koalas and other nasties.

sadly i cant read these anymore, sales were abusing the bbc website and i cant think of anyway round it on a "legal" way :P

How does one "abuse" the BBC?

in 5 days they used a total of 1 week browsing time on one website.. in other words they were doing sod all else

Out of interest, is that a total of five, eight hour days worth of browsing, or is it that they managed to use their weeks alloted "browsing in work hours" time in five days?

apparently it was the full 8 hours per day for 5 days.... im sure he was exaggerating but it made us techies chuckle as we have home connections and 2 unrestricted pc's @:P

On the up side, at least it wasn't porn.

wouldnt have mattered, its a small firm and no-one cares about content, it was the fact they were doing nothing while they were supposed to be working

lol this aint a porn free for all, get your own ;)

ok... you can ask me nicely and i will consider it :P

Chances are they were spending way too much time on it when they should've been working. If they're anything like the sales department at my firm, this'll definitely be the case ;)

Well if you're not supposed to be reading the site, then that's that for legal ways. Proxy sites are an easy workaround though, albeit horribly slow and full of adverts. Or browse via a home PC, and logmein.com :-)

yeah i know but if i was to get caught i would get told off :P
