Your Letters

15:44 UK time, Thursday, 16 December 2010

Did anyone else notice Alan Sugar's supposed IT expert's slip up? He claimed that "ISP" stands for "Internet Service Protocol", where it actually stands for "Internet Service Provider". Do I win a prize?
Colin Main, Berkhamsted, UK

I see nominative determinism doesn't extend to street names ...
Jonny, Belfast

To Nadja (Weds Letters): Why do you ask? Do you have some 'merchandise' available, that you want to advertise?
Ray, Turku, Finland

I think that White Space Avenue is a really good idea for a road name. As an idea, they should start using other media-based terms. Chain Mail Road, Compare The Market Lane, and (my personal favourite) Enalrge Your Penis For Less High Road.
Liam, Northampton

In this blog, Fergus says swine flu is returning, "especially in the 5-14 and 15-44 age groups". That would be the 5-44 age group then?
Richard, Shrewsbury, UK

So having lost 24 minutes of my day making tea, I then lost a further sizeable chunk reading about how I lost those 24 minutes and then composing this letter about how many minutes I lost making tea and reading about making tea. My head hurts!
Phil, Oxford

Malcolm Rees, Aldershot

Re: the story about Henri IV's collectible head, "Researchers have reconstructed the face of Henry IV, using the presumed skull" Why bother when there's a picture halfway down the page showing what he looked like?
Clare, CT, USA

I'd like to complain about the complaining tone of Judy from Leeds's letter (Wednesday's letters).
Adam, London, UK

Judy (Wednesday's letters) - no.
Dan, Cambridge

I missed my work Christmas party today because Ive got flu and I'm feeling very sorry for myself. That's all. Thanks. Sniff.
Sue, London
