Well bad news

 

Away resorts just cancelled our Isle of Wight holiday with 3 weeks notice

 

Apparently they've dug up the camping pitches to put more statics in

 

Why they couldn't wait until the end of camping season (2 weeks after our stay) I don't know

 

Well all in all I'm a little more cheerful now

 

Got the holiday refunded (£230)

Quoted package Travel regs at them (ferry also booked through them) and got £50 compensation and an offer of money off our next stay 

 

New campsite is £190 so that leaves a little bit left over for a couple of nice meals out

 

Will miss not going to the island though but have booked into Prestatyn which while nice isn't quite what we wanted

I see the US Government are running out of money again.

 

Just imagine a world where money ceases to be a tradeable commodity !

 

There is a trend towards a bartering economy, where businesses trade in a virtual currency, which relates to x value in goods and services. The only thing I don't understand is how people would then pay mortgages etc.

they will have to lend some more off China ...

which debt is reported as far smaller than it actually is as China and Japan effectively supply funds for a lot of the US institutional creditors

Wonder if it a coincidence that all the Facebook whistle blower stuff is hitting the fan currently?

Mind you the 60 minutes report was sadly unimpressive

is installing an Alexa type device in your home similar to having bug listening devices installed by Police or security services ?

Amazon customers can request all their data from the shopping giant, and can automatically delete voice data in the Alexa app

I remember a similar issue with a customer claiming that 'alexia' had ordered something that wasn't ordered and when it should have been off,

.. with Amazon quoting evidence that they had that the customer had said a word 'similar' to the activation word - which 'accidentally' activated it .. followed by 'accidental' ordering due to interpreting what was said

 

I would not ever consider one of these things in my house.

I would never install Alexa or any other device which listened in to conversations so they could target advertising. 

 

And enabling Alexa to accept voice commands to order products from Amazon is a bit daft.

Hi Sandy, there are all sorts of options for moving stuff

Try hover the arrow over the on/off etc bar, click and hold the click, while holding the click drag the bar where you want it.

 

You can do allsorts with the start screen - even make it look more like windows 7

I just stayed with 7

 

 

some examples

Steps on how to get the start button like previous versions of Windows back in Windows 8.

Greg Shultz highlights several new enhancements to the Start Screen in WIndows 8.1 that you can use to make it look and feel more like the Start...

it is annoying now as got about 3/4 of  the screen showing now instead of a full screen with the icons normally at the bottom but now decided to go to the right side at the top!  Have looked online and tried most but nothing as yet has worked, it only did this tonight!

Thought of the day

 

Poland border - wouldn't life be easier if we told the migrants that we would let them all in as long as one of them killed lukashenko first... 

 

I think he would stop importing migrants at that point
