This is a question Shops and Supermarkets

I used to work in a supermarket where the girl on the deli counter cut off the top of her finger in the meat slicer, but was made to finish her shift before going to hospital. You can now pay £100 to shoot zombies in the store's empty shell, haunted by poor dead nine-finger deli girl. Tell us your tales of the old retail experience, from either side of the counter

Sometimes, being the IT geek isn't as good as it was cracked up to be.
Years ago, when the web was just starting, I was working doing the whole shelf-stacking shite a lot of us end up doing at some point in our lives. So far, so dull.

That was, until the boss got wind of the fact I was good with a computer, and wanted a website making for the shop so he could get his "business out there". My protestations of this being pointless back in 1998 fell upon deaf ears. Ah well.

So, nutting up and shutting up, I learned html, and more importantly, the joys of comment code, which thankfully the boss was too daft to spot. I've just looked at the old website, and it's still there, with the comment code intact.

Why not take a look?

You do realise
that your link leads to the wrong website? It links to a DeAgostini website about toy horses. You might want to get that fixed as I imagine it might disappoint or annoy some folk. Not me though. I love horses - best of all the animals. I love horses - they're my friends.

My cursor was over the link, I was about to click,
then the part of my brain that occasionally makes good decisions woke up and said "hang on, wait a minute, is there any chance this might be a horse?" Go functioning bit of brain!

it didn't take me long to work out that any links on b3ta should be scrutinised
a quick look to see where the link's poining to before clicking.
a worthy attempt though

Luckily I had my speakers turned off when I clicked on the link.

I had to switch them on though, to hear the horsey goodness, otherwise I'd have felt cheated.
