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.

  1. I remember when the Inq used to be a source of stories.

    Now, it barely updated. When it does, the ‘articles’ are just rehashes of other people’s work.

    Such a shame.

    I’ll fondly remember it for what it used to be.

  2. So when are you going to start a proper replacement to the Inq?
    I miss useful information…

  5. Hi Mike,

    I noticed The Inq had gone a tad moldy….

    How rude of them, to say such! There mummy and daddy did not bring them up propa!

    Stiff upper lip and all that sort of thing. Most certainly, you will turn a good card soon and a fun game will begin again.

    Haralambos :-)
