Surprised they don't send a meter reader to make sure nobody is abstracting electricity for free, at least once a year! If for example the supply company heard someone was growing weed in the building, they would be round like a shot, you get me.

Micro Soft issued a windows 10 anniversary update. It did not go down well with those who like to skype and there are a lot of skype users.

We've had a few comedy pieces recently and here's another from one of the greatest standups ever (imho) sadly missed.

Banking and Shopping - the great Dave Allen.

Also been watching a lot of Hale and Pace - another very and thankfully un-PC pair. Check them out to remind yourselves of when comedy was truly funny. Meanwhile enjoy....

BROKEN WEBCAM? BLAME MICROSHAFT!

Millions of Windows 10 users are finding that since the "anniversary update" of that horrible operating system, their webcams seem to have given up the ghost, especially if Skyping.
This appears to have been an intentional outcome of the update as Microshaft has reduced the number of file formats that can be used.
Once millions of people began complaining, the OS giant realised it had to do something and a patch is on the way, but won't be released until September. (And that's 30 days long!)

Thers is a temporary fix. If you are comfortable tweaking the registry, make this change: HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows Media Foundation\Platform, add DWORD "EnableFrameServerMode" and set to 0, you will then need to restart Skype.

If you're NOT happy tweaking the registry, you are temporarily at least, shafted.

Isn't it about time those oligarchs at Microshaft realised how sick to the back teeth we are that "daddy knows best"?

Webcam? What about my f^cking printer?

Seems MicroSHAFT, in their wisdom, have deleted the drivers for my printer. Old, yes, Epson RX425 but it was working fine til these c^nts decided I should buy a new one with their latest update.

Next c^nt that says "save the planet" gets a kick in the cock!

UPDATE: I managed to find drivers for it and install the thing yet again. OK, you may say, no big deal but why in hell do Microshaft do these things? Why uninstall something that's working perfectly well, say that no drivers are available then finally admit there are drivers?

You don't need answer that one. It's because of CONSUMERISM. Scrapping perfectly good stuff to buy the latest, more fasionable piece of kit.

If any government was worth its cross in the box it would give organisations like Microshaft a bloody good slap. That won't happen of course.

No government is going to bite the hand that feeds it.

It all does make being green a load of tosh.

"GREENWASH" - the new whitewash!

American universities are going through some major changes as they are at odds with the thought police's policies.

Many professors are being vilified some are having positions with held. Why you ask?

They are holding courses on subjects that are forbidden e.g. 9/11 and its effects on the worlds Muslims. Or posting tweets that are considered anti semitic e.g. why is Israel firing missiles at U.N. designated safe sites? They are not thinking the correct thoughts that must now be instilled into the students of today.

Universities must no longer teach an individual to question facts and test the evidence. There is a new paradigm on the campus and creative thought is no longer on the syllabus.

This is a long article,it covers a lot of ground. Being written by an academic it is very well argued,something that will not go down well in some quarters.

I liked the comparison to the old American founding fathers way of handling the native Indians by referring to them as savages, versus we civilized,in order to kill and take their land. To today's American politicians statements on the Muslim terrorists, hating our freedoms. In order to kill and take their natural resources.

Why is the American press so anti Trump yet pro Hillary,despite all the revelations about her?

It might have something to do with the amount of money that has been given to her campaign by the media. They want to see a return on their investment.

BREAD AND CIRCUSES

There's an online petition to have Mo Farrah awarded a knighthood.

IMHO it's just like Yuri Bezmenov says: FALSE HEROES.

"What do you do?" "I'm a fireman, a lifeboat crewman, a mountain rescue team member etc."

"Step aside!"

"What do YOU do?" "I'm an actor, a singer, I can run fast or jump in the air."
"HERE! HAVE AN AWARD!"

Anyway, where did all these super athletes come from? Time was when Britain was best at being shoite!

The American people are learning to be leary of so called poll results.

Who is teaching them? that great British T.V. program Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister.

It shows them how polling really works.

Just as a coincidence, Jeff (from Wheatley Hill) I posted that BEFORE I knew that Richard was going to discuss the Olympics and Team GB....

VICTORY!

I mentioned that my mother, living in a care home, has been ORDERED by British Gas to give meter readings. The problem is the meters are in a meter house to which the approx 50 residents don't have access.

I tried to explain this to BG who replied with veiled threats about her being in breach of contract, if she didn't give the readings.

So, I challenged BG to cut off her supply and referred the matter to OFGEM.

Amazingly, after numerous emails and BG saying it had to be done their way, they've now backed down and will send a meter reader, every 3 months, the way it used to be done.

They also apologised for the distress they caused.

My concern is this: What do people do when they don't have the fight I have in them? These maniacs in power need putting to shame and a damned good dressing down.

THEY ARE NOTHING BUT FACELESS BULLIES PLAYING KEYBOARD WARRIORS WITH THE ELDERLY AND INFIRM!
