Moving Xmas

I could not belive my email box on Christmas morning ..

Argos, Dabs, Tescos and Play had all emailed me to tell me about their great Sales. There were presents sat under my tree that I had paid full price for in this sale. For example Ghost Recon 2 which I had paid 32.99 for from Play was now 17.99 ..

I think their eagerness to generate more spending was an insult!!

Christmas is a rip off !!

Loaded in winamp: Kinda watching Top Gear

YaY!! It's nearly Christmas and I am ever so excited about getting my new monitor!! .. For the longest time I have been wanting dual monitor but never gone for it because of desk space. Although I have a huge desk 2 CRT's wouldn't fit. I went to Ebuyer and found some reviews for an LG montior which had lots of great reviews so I went for it. PC Advisor for Jan 2005 have covered monitors and give an LG model top slot best buy.

Plan is have work on one screen and Morrowind on the other which means I will be able to level up my char and progress in the game. I started it months ago but its one of them games where it takes you a good half hour to remember what you were doing last time ..

So Hurry Santa bring me my new toy!!

Loaded in winamp: Too early

Going through my email I have had an email from a company called Sitemorse .. What they do is email your clients and tell them the site you made them is shite .. So the client then comes back to you with mega concerns that the website you made them is full of errors ..

This happened to me with one of my clients .. He contacted me via email sending a copy of the email that Sitemorse had sent him .. I was quite pissed off and went to the companies website to find out further information ..

Straight away it became apparent what this company were doing .. They email you telling you there are errors and then offer to tell you all the errors if you pay 80!! I explained this to my client and ran through a few sites that I knew had valid HTML and CSS along with Access Keys for people with limited mobility ..

The results were the site failed on a number of things .. so I knew they were being particularly fussy ..

I'd forgotten all about this company until yesterday when I had a call from some guy asking what I had thought about their service and offering me a special discounted price of around 225 to check all my sites for me unlimited amount of times until March 2005 ..

I told the guy that his service pissed me off as a website developer because I felt the service was just sticking the knife in so they could con the panicking client to paying the fee to have the results .. The guy said that they were not a charity and had to charge for the service .. My argument was I'd never asked for the service and therefore did not appreciate them contacting my clients undermining my service ..

He knew what I was saying and said we might as well end the conversation there as he knew it wasn't going to generate any sales for his company ..

I asked him out of interest why when I had run the Sitemorse website through it's own service it was blocking me from seeing the results!! He laughed because I had hit the nail on the head and we wished each other a good week and said goodbye ..

Unfortunate Margate
Loaded in winamp: None watching MTV and they dont do Music anymore !!??

I was watching an old 'Have I got News for you' because although I pay for a premium sky package and have god knows how many channels there is always sod all to watch .. Anyway back to the reason for the post .. Have I got news for you' was recorded back in 2001 it could of been November .. There was a chic on Paul Mertons team .. I commented to my other half about how I felt she was trying far too hard in the clevage department .. to which he replied she looked like some old dog you would pick up in a nightclub in margate .. As the show went on it became apparant her name was Tracey .. my other half laughed and said OMG how funny if she is that woman who recently made a film about growing up in Margate .. Serioulsy anyone who's been to Margate will look at the Chatham girls website and think Chatham girls are classy !!

Well if you haven't already guessed it was her 'Tracey Emin' representing all the Margate Girls!! hahaha God bless you and your wonder bra Tracey!!
