I understand that forms with my address on will contain mistakes. Despite the fact that most companies just ask for a postcode and a house number or name, and then look the rest up, there always seems to be a human element. But why would anyone design a computer system where you had to type in the names of the counties rather than select them from a list? And should I worry that I entrust my healthcare to people who think I live in 'Worikshire'?


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
