Hi all,

I hope those of you that went to Blackpool had a good time and havn`t got to big a hangover :-p

This morning I went around the block to cool off from being woken by the Cowboy/Building Renovators and I get back to find out one of the neighbours has been burgled from the scaffolding around the back during the last night,
so I went to Notting hill Housing Trust to see what they can do about insurance again and they gave me the number of their Insurers, I rang them on the internal phone on the way to the loo, isn`t it amazing that firms still seem to use 9 for a line out ? ;-)
The Insurers wanted to know my Date of Birth and if I had a criminal record !!!
I asked the Woman I was talking to about data protection and she had a little speech prepared for that, finishing with that they have the right to share my data with IDS Ltd, but did not know how long the data stays on record and who else has access.
So lets presume I havn`t got a criminal record, and have fullfilled the requirements ect, how much for my place?...they still can`t do it because I have the wrong window locks.. but I said pretend I have the right locks,
I got a quote of ?00 and I can`t have it just for 5 weeeks or as for long as the repairs take...1 year policy or nothing....
usually I don`t need one as I don`t normally have scaffolding as an outside adornment for the local thieving gits to use willy nilly...so why should I have to pay out of my pocket? when NHHT want to do the work on the flats and mine dosn`t even need any work done ?.

Pm.

Just had a fraught session at the local internet shop trying to upload pictures / content to my blog, it shut down IE 5 times in 20 minutes... I changed machine and the same was happening...the manager said maybe there is a virus but the system was updated a few days ago...well the AV maybe but "windows 2000 pro isn`t...

Went out side to have a talk with mother nature and this guy comes up hassling me for a light, then a cigarette and then money and when I said no he got stroppy and prodded me in the chest...
so I pinned him up against the bus shelter and belted him...only once... he sort of sat on the pavement quickly.....then this woman shouts abuse at me and goes to hit me with a lump of two by two (5cm. by 5cm.) wood,
she missed and hit the guy in the ribs and then has another go at me and hits him in the face...well it`s not my fault if I can move fast :-)
She then has another go, at which point this is no "Lady" in my book and got a open handed slap and the piece of wood confiscated .....she sat down...I then ended up putting a couple of butterfly stiches accross the guys eyebrow and telling him to hold his nose to stop the bleeding....then went home....

Went out Ratting and found an ADSL router, Cisco 678 complete with software, cables and power supply, a slow modem with leads and power supply for Mac, also finding a Quadra 650 , a Performa 6200 and a Quadra 840 av Macintosh and finally a Epson EPL-5700i Laser printer.....I`m knackered......

TTFN
CSB +:-)

Ps, any one got any spare Mac cables /mice and keyboards I can have?....pretty please :-)
I want to play....I have one Mac mouse and a couple of extension cables and a convertor so I can use a Pc Monitor but have nought else to do with Mac`s.
Oh, and do they use ordinary cat 5 to connect to the Pc LAN ?
Any help to "www.reverend-ratmonkey@hushmail.com" remove the monkey first.....Ta :-)
