So I have invested in some new computer hardware, not a much needed new iMac but a NAS for storing all my digital images. This will replace a rats nest of hard disks of various sizes currently residing under my computer desk. Have you noticed that when you buy a new-fangled gadget you believe will make your life easier it highlights deficiencies in other areas of your system and forces you into further credit card expenditure. Funny that.
So the age verification systems due to be enforced on all UK porn sites in April as part of the Digital Economy Act is to be delayed until later in the year so that further “public consultation” can take place. Good job. I’ve not heard anybody who has a clue how it is going to work and that includes the overpaid members of the quango charged with setting it up and policing it.
What a shit week. After a spending hiatus of many months I decided it was time to splash out on some new computer and photographic bits and bobs. What happens? Of the seven items ordered two have gone adrift in transit and one item is DOA. Ordering stuff online is usually easy but finding the procedure for reporting a problem not so. I’m now waiting to see if and when my money is returned and then starting the ordering process all over again because the missing bits are still required.
Winter is over. I have no meteorological evidence of this it’s just that I’m fed up of freezing my nuts off and have issued a dictum to that affect. Okay we can all now start to think of going outside and actually enjoying ourselves but no mention of fucking gardening please.
