Good morning

Just given a so called Internet Security company based in Somerset a right royal roasting. The bullshit they were coming out with was unbelievable!

"They've taken the site down now. you won't hear from us again."

No they haven't, the server's playing up.

"We've blacklisted it, you won't hear from us again."

Wait, what? You just said the site was down, now you're saying you blacklisted it. Which is it?

Best bit, it's nothing to do with us its a hosting company we do mutual work with!

Hands up all those who remember me the other week saying "I've insanely overpriced a job because I don't want it"?

So the speaker invoked a 400 year old rule.
Of course that is nothing like the government trying to use 500 year old Henry VIII powers. :)

Spent last few weeks getting quotes for work at my house that requires scaffolding but haven't yet awarded the job. Then I came home today to find my house wrapped in surprise scaffolding! So I'm ringing up the people I've had round trying to find out who sent them in but no one knows and there's no indication anywhere who it all belongs to!? Everyone is very confused then 2 hours later a guy knocks on my door admitting his firm put it up by mistake, it should be next door!

@krageon hi!

Feck, first day back and I already need more time off.

Still not totally over that stupid flu. It really did a number on my lungs. Keep coughing. Talked with others that had it at work and apparently I should expect it to continue like that for a couple weeks.

Took a while to get through the immigration checkpoint but hello Taipei! So much cooler here, I've finally stopped sweating after 5 days in Sauna/Singapore :P

At GDC. I see there’s a session on loot boxes and their legal pitfalls and loopholes – sleaziest session of the conference hands down. I might go

I think I've upset the the Samsung S10+ owner again? Doh!

They showed me the new theme for text messages on Friday, it did look rather sexy I must admit, reminded me of Chomp tbh. Yesterday I had an update on my Samsung S8+ (A 2yr old phone) and low and behold I too now have the new theme.

Watched Bohemian Rhapsody at the weekend. Fairly enjoyable although I was a bit disappointed they wasted so much DVD time showing pretty much all of Queen's performance at Live Aid especially as Freddie probably shortened the time he had left by flogging his guts out after the concert which would have been far more interesting to show.
