I heard about fix the web, where web users can report websites that don't support accessibility. It is charity and Stephen Fry supports it too. Here is the link

Also this website deals with accessibility, link below

What kind of idiot doesn't date their letters?

Even though this letter was written a few months ago, I could have used it but because it's undated, it's as good as useless.

When I woke up this morning my phone was boiling hot and going berserk. It took me hours to get my contacts back, I have just reset my alarms, and loads of stuff is gone. And it's making irritating noises every time I get an email or whatever.

This was not on my list of things to do today.

It happened again. Only this time I had to reset my gmail password as well, which means I can't complete the job of getting everything back until tomorrow. As I am working all day tomorrow, that means I won't be able to do it till the evening. So two days of very limited functionality in my phone.

And to think I was happy with an offline phone until 14 months ago ::)

Thanks Artist, Iíll have a look at those.  I reckon I could spend quite a lot of my time reporting inaccessible websites.

New executive order- if your health insurance is covered by your employer and he decides you shouldn't have contraceptives he can opt out
Since they're so "moral" and all
I don't think it affects Viagra- well it wouldn't would it

 Bloody inaccessible websites again! All the time, all the fucking time!  Why should I spend my whole life reporting this shit? Nobody takes a blind bit of notice anyway (pun intended.)  This wouldnít be acceptable for anyone else, why is it for us?
 Fucking hell Iím so annoyed I canít type properly. Iím actually shaking Iím so wound up.

The hypocrisy is staggering. And of course you're not allowed contraception but you're not allowed abortions either. They really do want women just popping out babies, don't they? But without any help or support once the child is born >:(

The rubbish 'booking' system at my local GUM clinic.
Without going too far into the tedious details, the actual hours are different to those listed on the website because according to the receptionist "it hasn't been updated". The only bookable times are 5-7pm on the day (not in advance) which are really difficult for me but "they suit most people" I'm told. Well that's no help to me, is it? They do walk-in clinics but you have to wait about 90 minutes. "It's the same for everyone" she says. Yes, I realise that, I'm not asking for special treatment, just trying to find a reasonable solution. It's not an emergency, I'm only doing this because my GP said she couldn't explain my bleeding and the GUM people were better equipped to help me.
There are two other clinics near me but they only deal with under-25s (because obviously people stop having reproductive organs after that age).
Yes I'm grateful I can just turn up and (eventually) be seen for free, but there must be a better way of running a clinic.

people making noise outside late in the night, rather than keeping it down when they must know they might affect people.

Musette, I read this and just sympathised, initially. But now I am also perplexed. Why are you not being referred to a gynaecologist? If no-one actually suspects an STD, why are you being sent to a clinic which sounds to me like its main purpose in life is treating STDs?
