The Government change web site on 17th this month might have already been put in a thread if so I missed it. Click Here

Don't worry morddwyd, I'm sure that facilities for taking money in will be high on the 'must get it right' list.

Not too sure where the part about sending out the disc comes though.

I've just realised all the bookmarks for the potentially useful yougov pages will be rendered useless!

17th October is also time for the latest Freeview retune:

Freeview National retune On Wednesday the 17th of October Freeview will be making changes to the channel listings for all Freeview TV's, set top boxes and PVR's. This will mean that after lunchtime on this date Freeview viewers should check to see if their equipment has already adopted these changes or if they need to retune their product to affect these changes.

The changes taking place are as follows:-

HD channels will move to channel numbers 101-120

Marketplace will move from channel number 61 to channel 50

The Adult section will start at channel number 171 (currently 91)

It's getting as bad as Supermarket Shopping, everytime I go there they seem to have shifted everything around to a different aisle or stopped selling it.

At first glance it looks a bit computer wizard style navigation, so anything that makes less like wading through treacle is better than was.

The only time I have used any of the places available is to re-tax my car. I found that to be efficient and easy to do. I can't see how they could make it much easier.

Any other government site I have tried to get on, I have had problems with. But they have been such as the time they opened the site for a census a couple of years ago.

Are they changing just for the sake of changing, I ask myself?

"I'm due to re-tax the car, so I might wait a day or so and give the live site a whirl."

That's one more nail in the Post Office's coffin then...

QB, p'raps all Post Offices should have an internet terminal where 'applying-on-line' is available ... and pull that nail out, right away!

They're hammering them in themselves, with the massive queues.

With arthritic ankles, knees, hips and spine, like many, I simply cannot stand that long.

Perhaps an american style take a number as you enter, then go to a large seating area and wait for your number to be called might be workable in offices where queues are a problem?
