Just so that you know…

  • I will finish that unfinished post that has been lurking in my Drafts folder since, oh, August. It has pictures too.
  • I will finish that redesign that I started. I know you can’t see any evidence of it yet, but I promise that it will be good. Very good indeed.
  • I ordered some CDs a while ago for some friends to bring over from the US. I ordered them on 28 December. My card was charged on 29 December. It is 16¬†January today and they have still not arrived and my friends fly today. The company concerned is not responding to calls or email. UPDATE: the CDs arrived the day after they left. So they are now being FedExed to catch up with them as they work their way eastwards (visiting clients across the US), which largely defeats the object of having them delivered to their office. Ho hum.
  • I ordered a replacement remote control for my mum. The company concerned sent a non-original replacement (they didn’t make that clear on the website) which was not compatible (mum’s telly is a video-TV combi and this remote had no video controls). They didn’t respond to emails. I’ve just called them and they didn’t once apologise for sending the wrong item, could not explain why my email was not answered (didn’t even attempt to find out) and did not offer to pay for the return of the incorrect item. The operator managed to convey a sincere feeling of not giving a stuff. That company is AV UK Limited and I heartily recommend that you avoid them.
  • This site is being a bit flaky lately. 34SP insist it isn’t them, but I can’t imagine where else there might be a problem.
  • I’m up to my eyes in work.
  • Tom will be one next week – send money.
  • If I get another one of those Harris Exploration Hits Gold spam mails, I will scream. AAAAARGHH!

  1. Lyle – fixed and updated.

    Gordon – you can talk. Besides, the current design is based on a very WordPress 1.0 era template (of my own creation and modified from an early MT template – and even that was based on a Blogger design) that really doesn’t support many of the current functions of WP. So my aim is to modernise and also to bring it up to date so that I can use pages and other WP 2.0 functions. I estimate that it will be completed just in time to be rendered obsolete by WP 3.0.
