    Aches and Pains

    I had a heart attack about 6 months ago, it required a stent to save my life. Additional coronary arterial disease required me to have a triple bypass surgery (CABG) in August. Still have some issues from the CABG, open heart surgery is not fun... I hope to get feeling back in my left...

    How do you deal with wasps in your house?

    I used to get a lot of paper wasps in the eves on my back patio, right next to my clothes line. One morning I got some underwear from the line and put it on to find it contained a wasp, neither of us was happy about sharing those undies. Not as bad as the redback spider I found in my doona...

    Net Neutrality campaign

    You can choose not to use google, youtube or facebook, as there are alternatives that are accessible to everybody. Some people do not have a choice of ISP or cannot change ISPs without significant costs.

    Woman charged with Manslaughter after stun went very wrong

    To match the punctuation of the 2nd amendment it should read; A well balanced breakfast, being necessary to the start of a healthy day, the right of the people to keep and eat food, shall not be infringed. Which appears to say a well balanced breakfast is the right, not that keeping and...

    The state of Games Workshop

    I wonder how they would deal with my armies that consist of old models, many conversions, from up to 25 years ago (I haven't bought any models in over a decade). We started playing 40K in the '90s. As people stopped playing I inherited their armies (as I have the space to keep them). I...

    Selling PC, tips for wiping OS SSD?

    Try encrypting the drive first, that way if someone does get the data back they can't access it.

    Cheese and I are no longer friends (along with many other foods I can never eat again after my heart attack). I miss grilled cheddar on toast the most at the moment.

    What's the strangest thing to ever happen to your body/mind?

    Last month I had a heart attack, only just surviving due to emergency surgery (angioplasty). It has precipitated a huge lifestyle change that I am still coming to terms with. Nothing in my life so far has given me more motivation for change than asking a doctor if I was going to survive...

    Hey. I heard you booked this flight legally. GET OFF THE F***ING PLANE!!!!

    Immature is not the word I would have used but if you insist... I do believe I am exempt from fake, non-existent, non applicable or illegal rules and laws. I will not follow them just because other people think I should or it will make a scene if I don't. These are the applicable rules...

    Hey. I heard you booked this flight legally. GET OFF THE F***ING PLANE!!!!

    I think it is you who missed the point.. United ordered 4 people to get off the plane, 3 complied and 1 refused. Because 1 consumer refused, standing up for their rights under the contract, other consumers are already seeing benefits. Other airlines are now ensuring this sort of debacle...

    Hey. I heard you booked this flight legally. GET OFF THE F***ING PLANE!!!!

    This will be a cautionary tale for marketing students for decades to come; how United under estimated the power of social media and cost itself hundreds of millions. BTW Delta airlines is now offering up to US$10,000 in similar cases (rather than the US DOT required 4x the cost of the ticket...
