The INQUIRER goes all funny

MY OLD VEHICLE, the Inquirer, appears to be going through some changes.

There’s hardly any stories on it, and there’s a picture of a humming bird which points to a UK Press Gazette story about redundancies at Incisive Media ensconced in Castle Despair. Picture of the day was always an unsupported feature, but is there some strange mojo working here?

PCW is – or now was –  an ancient tech magazine, originally founded by one Felix Dennis. A bit of a flagship.

I did try to buy the INQ back about nine months ago, but was told by B in no uncertain terms, FOAD™ – which is nothing to do with Fuad or Fudo. It is actually quite rude. I leave you to guess what it means but the last two letters stand for “and die”.

Ah well. Vehicles do need to be replaced from time to time.
