State of Florida Seems to be Sending Automated Foreclosure Notices En Masse

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 00:17:49 +0000

Fraudulent foreclosures were reported in the US media several years ago, especially after the had bubble burst in 2008. These can be devastating as they can also shock children at a very young age (collective punishment), usually for the enrichment of some private corporations such as banks (which received bailouts, i.e. the very opposite of […]



My New Setup (Primary Workspace)

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 19:08:39 +0000

e now have 3 dual-display laptops here, properly connected using the wonderful Synergy (we’re using it with the GUI which is Quicksynergy). My wife uses one such laptop, whereas now, having gotten a bargain on a new laptop (it cost just 99 pounds), I use two, which means 4 screens to work with in synergy. […]



Why the British Government Has a Moral Obligation to Immediately Send Helicopters to Portugal

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 04:40:35 +0000

he UK has a large airborne fleet which is hardly being used except for unnecessary wars and air shows. Now that Portugal, a fellow EU member state, is burning we have the moral obligation to save not only houses but also people and livestock (we don’t know yet how far the fires would reach if […]

Where to Follow My Writings Online (2016 Edition)

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 09:20:37 +0000

ike most people*, over the years my online posting habits change and sites I was once active in I no longer access (some no longer exist at all). This differs from person to person. I used to be very active in newsgroups and in mailing lists (that was about a decade ago), but I no […]



Wilko (UK Retailer): The Customer Services Fiasco Continues

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 08:13:41 +0000

early a fortnight ago Wilko’s ATM stole my money and many hours of work later (and some major inconveniences other than loss of time and money) the issue remains uncorrected. A week ago I wrote about my second visit to the store. The manager gave me a call but was unable to offer a satisfactory […]



DCPayments (Infocash) and Wilko: Avoid or Lose Your Money, Time

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 14:46:00 +0000

ESTERDAY I ranted about my experiences with Wilko. This rant came after wasting no less than 3 days without making progress, so I wasn’t so trigger-happy. In fact, I was patient and polite all along. I was trying to be understanding. I am still polite, but obviously my rants are becoming more disruptive to Wilko, […]

Wilko (UK) Uses Faulty ATMs that Crash, Will ‘Steal’ Money and Then Wilko Will Lie and Divert, Not Even Naming the ATM Supplier

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 16:49:08 +0000

ILKO’s ATMs have a reputation for being a piece of rubbish. Quite often when I come to the shop members of staff kindly ask people not to use these, so what’s the point having them there in the first place? These machines are so amateur that one can, in principle, pretty easily pull the power […]



How I Use an Old Palm PDA Even in 2016

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 21:19:36 +0000

Palm Tungsten T introduced and made in 2002, still used nearly 14 years later LOSE friends of mine rightly find it hard to believe, but I still carry around with me (and regularly use) a device that’s nearly a decade and a half old. Well, newer is not always (or not necessarily) better, especially when […]
