It comes in three’s …


Luck, that is. Or so people say. Well If it’s right, then I’ve just had my ‘three’ with eBay. The first one, with the mouses (mice … meece…?) was resolved, but since then another two issues have occurred. Both of them are leading up to a successful conclusion, but it’s the time and the trouble … Continue reading It comes in three’s …

Won’t get fooled again …


No, this post has nothing to do with the early 1970’s song by The Who, but to the bad practices by some on eBay. You may remember a previous post last week when I got caught by a fake seller. My, I suppose it’s greed, led me to purchase an item that turned out to … Continue reading Won’t get fooled again …

Watch out !! Scammer about !!

     I really am against Fathers Day as a celebration day. A day that is thrust down everyone's throat.

It is commercialism at its worst.      There a number of reason why I … Continue reading Fathers day …. and the point is ?

Being the careful IT nerd that I am, I immediately logged … Continue reading …..and not just printers !!!

Bloody printers !!!!!


   What is it with printers in this house !!! Is it the printers, or is just me ? We have had the Epson D78 about three years now, and it has now decided to be a pain. There always seem so be a problem with it recognising the magenta cartridge. Usually takes a few … Continue reading Bloody printers !!!!!

Its the weekend !!


Where did the week go ? It’s been quite tedious at work. I've not had too much to do really, and because I’ve lost some jobs, I’m struggling some day to fill the hours. Never mind, next week should be better. I wonder who is coming from Northampton. I suppose it could be Martin or … Continue reading Its the weekend !!
