GOOD PACK, BAD PACK - IT's gone mad

Wife home. Kids pretty much now in residence.

Hence everyone clamouring to get on various sources of IT to do their own thing.

Fortunately, various bits 'n bobs had been purchased.

Unfortunately, they pretty much all reduced me to spitting bullets on waste and/or in wrap rage.

Last first. I guess it's mainly a 'one size suits all' matter of economics, but that cable really didn't need that size of blister (much less a blister at all, save to protect the ends - another story).

But Microsoft... hang your heads in shame!

One CDR... and it took all that!!!!!!

Worse, it took me about 10 minutes to open the sodding thing!

I really can see no excuse. Evidently another one size fits all with space for a booklet (doubtless in 26 languages), but if you send a CDR, send it in a CDR box. Sheesh.
