After having my pizza delivered recently with a drizzle of unexplained hostility and not a hint of a smile, I was expecting the driver (a young Asian male driving a black hatchback) to leave my doorstep and get back into his car. Instead, he loitered on my doorstep, looked at me in an intimidating manner (as he did last time but I didn’t think anything of it at the time) and asked if I was going to give him a “service tip”. I could not believe what I was seeing/hearing! In my surprised state I said I didn’t have any change, to which he repeated what I said in reply, loitered for a little longer and then slowly walked back to his car and left.
The Pizzas were fine, however, in the past a few slices have been soggy, as if run under the tap and ruined on purpose...
I don’t normally tip take away delivery drivers due to the minimum spend rule and the fact that they’re usually not trying to bring up three kids on £2 an hour due to our decent minimum wage. I have NEVER detected even the slightest hint of displeasure from any take away delivery guys in all of my years nor have I ever been dissatisfied with any food I’ve received until ordering from the Amersham branch of Pizza Hut recently.
No doubt Pizza Hut management would be horrified. I’m posting this to make others aware and to see if anyone has had a similar experience.
I came across someone (new to Britain) asking for recommendations of computer magazines... specifically for software developers (C++, Java, mobile apps, etc)...
In my day it Computer Weekly, Computing and PCW were de rigueur but its so long that I don't know what's up to date.
Anyone able to recommend anything ?

The look and feel will change, we may not like it, but it is apparently progress!
A new application has gone into CDC. The demolition of existing properties and the building of six terrace houses. CH/2015/0761/FA.
Looks pretty good to me with off street parking and new lamp posts along the frontage.
Will the old bumpy Rd be made up properly as this is the access to the parking area.
An exciting thing is going on up in Amersham-on-the-Hill... Ben from Amersham has built a shed that is a contender for George Clarke's Amazing Spaces: Shed of the Year!
We would love the word to get out in Amersham and surrounding areas, to get as many votes as possible! It's the "Shedservatory" that appears on the front page http://www.readersheds.co.uk/vote.cfm
