One thing that this case highlights is the safety of air travel is once again in question. If you lock your case and wrap it up to avoid tampering you could be in breach of anti terrorism legislation in some countries that requires that your baggage be inspectable. On the other hand, leaving it unlocked… Continue reading Changes Needed To International Aviation Law
Recent news regarding an Australian tourist arrested in Bali for carrying 4.1 kilos of marijuana into the country has concluded with her being given a 20 year jail term.I don’t believe this is fair, just or even the right verdict. However, putting aside whether we believe she’s innocent or not (which I do) how can… Continue reading International Miscarriage Of Justice
It seems that most of my entries in here relate to shocking customer service in England these days. I wonder how long it is before the fabric of this country collapses as people realise they’d be better off spending a few bob and buy from abroad instead.Here’s my latest rant to a company that’s let… Continue reading Customer Relations?

But, this is one open source project that’s… Continue reading Things Looking Up In The Open Source World
Dear Pauline,Thank you for your e-mail.The reason I am so angry and eventually wrote such a ‘tirade’ is because I have been passed from pillar to post by Tesco on this matter for close to a year now. The cards are still in the name of myself and my ex-wife despite me requesting otherwise on… Continue reading Tesco Reply…
No matter what it is these days there seems to be only one thing that’s guaranteed. Absolutely shit service, from whatever it is you want and where-ever you buy it from.Companies don’t give a flying one about keeping customers, it’s all about getting new ones.

I’ve just spent the entire day trying to get Quickbooks Pro to send invoices out through e-mail.
