A friend of mine runs his own medium sized business and asked me if I could help him find a solution to IT issues his staff were having, so together we started hunting around the internet for options. We soon found a website called www.HelpDeskSite.com who have a blog dedicated to discussing helpdesk software that allows your workers to raise [...]

C2C trains

By |2012-11-09T19:53:05+00:00November 9th, 2012|Other|0 Comments

I've recently found out that the C2c commuter trains that run from Shoeburyness through to London Fenchurch Street offer the cheapest and best service in the UK. I was slightly surprised by this as I use their trains on a daily basis, and although their time keeping is usually pretty good, they are always packed during peak times, meaning there [...]

Finding a short term loan

By |2018-09-25T11:06:37+00:00September 29th, 2012|Other|0 Comments

As mentioned in my previous post, I'm currently looking to sell my car and upgrade for a new one. As usual, my idea of a new car exceeds the expectations set by my bank balance. That meant I was left with the options of buying a lesser car, maybe leasing one, or perhaps looking at a short term loan to [...]

I've not posted for a while, not for any real reason other then I'm a lazy git. But tonight, I thought I better make a record on the blog, so when I look back at this I won't forget how I felt right now. My last post was me criticising the Olympics tickets sales, I still think that their tickets [...]

London Olympics Tickets Timewaster

By |2012-06-08T12:59:34+00:00June 8th, 2012|Other|0 Comments

Yesterday the Olympic ticket people sent me a nice email telling me that at 11am this morning they would be selling tickets for general sale for several events, including the opening ceremony! After filling out the forms online months and months ago, requesting £400 odd worth of tickets and getting none at all, I was a little excited by the [...]

This is currently for sale on Ebay A couple of years back we moved into our new home, a house with a very average sized kitchen, but a kitchen that contained probably the biggest stained glass window I've ever seen outside of a church. It is apparently a masonic stained glass window - and one that I want to sell. [...]

London's Southwark Crown Court has this week seen Harry Redknapp's financial life being laid out in front of them, including admissions by the Spurs boss that he struggles to read and write. This man is one of the most talented football managers of my time, you can't take that away from him. As a West Ham fan, I watched him [...]

Shocked by Gary Speed’s death

By |2011-11-27T20:50:15+00:00November 27th, 2011|Other|0 Comments

Couldn't believe the news earlier today when I heard that Gary Speed had died, aged just 42. I was further shocked when I hear it was suicide. After an amazing footballing career, he was now the Wales national team manager, and appeared on BBC's football show just yesterday. The stature of the man was proved by fans, players and managers today, with [...]
