Dream worlds

It’s one of those posts again. I just realised – even more – that the human being is content to live in a dream world. What’s that – somebody is bound to ask. Ok – so let me distract myself to explain. A dream world is  one where your ownRead More

The humans again!

I continue to despair for the human race. They seem incapable of distinguishing what is fact from what is inference. Yes – of course that is a generalisation. I can’t deal with each human  – some 6 Billion of them! Get real. If Joe says that Jane says – doesRead More

Later

Over the last year I’ve become amused by some responses I’ve had when I send e-content by email to others. The content could be links to videos or webpages. The following is a typical list of responses: I’m in a conference in Australia. I’m on the beach. I’m out shopping.Read More

Date changer software for photos

I’ve found it!! There are some nifty little applications to change the dates of file images and exif data – in batches. Why is this important? Well  – because I use Robobasket to sort my photos into folders, I need Robobasket to pick up ‘Date Modified’ and Exif data fromRead More

Abysmal service dealt with on TripAdvisor

In short don’t mess with The Captain’s time and money! And don’t expect him to just roll over, sulk and not return. See TripAdvisor report or not – it’s a very long one and contains extreme detail. Your cure for insomnia perhaps.

Hounded by idiots – again!

Just watch this conversation below which happened just a few minutes ago. I think I have a problem. I’m being hounded by idiots!! Caller: Hello how are you? [In a polite tone] Me: Who’s calling please. Caller: Xxxx from [whatever ] Me: Someone from your organisation called yesterday – IRead More

What if you were possessed?

What if one day you suddenly had an awakening that you weren’t the person you thought you are? Suppose that you found out that your thoughts and feelings were being controlled or manipulated from a source other than yourself? And that all these years you didn’t know about it? YouRead More

Anti-social media

The more I look at and think about so-called ‘social media’ the more I come to some very different perspectives (in general – meaning exceptions excepted as you might expect). 1. Social media is more about prying on what other people are doing. 2. People comparing themselves with other people.Read More
