Priceless..... Credit Where Credits Due :S

Be sure and cancel your credit cards before you die! This is so priceless And so easy to see happening - customer service, being what it is today!

A lady died this past January, and MBNA bank billed her for February and March for their annual service charges on her credit card, and Then added late fees and interest on the monthly charge. The balance that had been £0.00, now is somewhere around £60.00.

A family member placed a call to the MBNA Bank:

Family Member: 'I am calling to tell you that she died in January.'
MBNA: 'The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.'
Family Member: 'Maybe, you should turn it over to collections.'
MBNA: 'Since it is two months past due, it already has been.'
Family Member: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?'
MBNA: 'Either report her account to the frauds division or report her to The credit bureau, maybe both!'
Family Member: 'Do you think God will be mad at her?'
MBNA: 'Excuse me?'
Family Member: 'Did you just get what I was telling you . . . The part about her Being dead?'
MBNA: 'Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor.'

Supervisor gets on the phone:

Family Member: 'I'm calling to tell you, she died in January.'
MBNA: 'The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.'
Family Member: 'You mean you want to collect from her estate?'
MBNA: (Stammer) 'Are you her lawyer?'
Family Member: 'No, I'm her great nephew.' (Lawyer info given)
MBNA: 'Could you fax us a certificate of death?'
Family Member: 'Sure.' ( fax number is given )

After they get the fax:

MBNA: 'Our system just isn't set up for death. I don't know what more I Can do to help.'
Family Member: 'Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing Her.
I don't think she will care.'
MBNA: 'Well, the late fees and charges do still apply.'
Family Member: 'Would you like her new billing address?'
MBNA: 'That might help.'
Family Member: ' Glasnevin Cemetry, Finglas Road , Dublin11, Ireland , Plot Number 1049.'
MBNA: 'Sir, that's a cemetery!'
Family Member: 'Well, what the **** do you do with dead people on your planet?'
You gotta wind the world up from time to time else it might stop turning :3

Bearly Coping :S

I really dunno what to put here, lotsa things so much so, they make for a TL;DR post or summat, so tis up to you if you wanna read or not & dont blame you if you dont, I dont wear my emotions on my sleeve & am never one to be emo, but dammit Ive jus had enuff of this shit & this spinning rock thing, Ive always been one to say how beautiful life is & all the things that go with it, looking on the bright side & saying things will only seem like a blip when you look back, but after five years of life going down the toilet I am struggling to even heed myself, atm I couldnt give a fuck if I live or die, as to be honest the impact on the world wouldnt be much different either way :S

CFS is a fucking cuntish thing to have, despite all my ongoing attemts to cope with it, Im jus tired of being tired & am becoming maoar fatigued from the run around social security does over this! Its really not helping at all :|

GumpfCollapse )

Hopefully tomorow will be a better day... but I doubt it :S
At most I can at least hope that Ill just have enough energy to get back to trying again :|

For once I think even the best hugs aint gonna cut it :(

Empty :S

Today I had to have my beloved cat Nermal put down...

She was over 20 years old & seemed to have a couple of strokes over the weekend & couldnt walk anymoar, so I had to contact the vet, I chose to get them to come out as I didnt want to stress her by taking her to them & its the way Id want to go if I could choose.

I felt a little like the betrayer as I stroked her into a slumber but it was the only choice, I shall miss her deeply but she had a wonderful life & was loved deeply throught, I am feeling as empty as her body is now, I hope her life force will return to give someone as much joy as she has my family & I or make someones life as active & enjoyable as hers was...

Watcher Of The Skies

Firstly sorry this is such a long & kinda nothing post but as I referenced Foxtrot by Genesis in my last post as always being a poignant album to me I thought I should elaborate a little or something :)
For those of you that havnt listened yet I really urge you to do so, also as a bonus it has furry/anthro coverart :D

Lotsa GumpfCollapse )

Anyway, I thought as I was listening to it again this afternoon I would post a ctitique of some sorts & jus thought I should try to make moar posts here & this stuff seemed like a good follow up from the last post.

Music is always good food for the mind & soul, this album I think is easily a four or moar course dinner, so feed it, nourish it & fortify it :)

Much love & hugz, Gav ={[O.o]}=

Time :S

I think something about time is apt...

Before you go any further take the time to open up & start listening to Foxtrot by Genesis one of the many fave albums from my childhood, that has a slightly timeless quality & its lyrics & melodies will stick with me till the end of my time :D

Ironic also how this is actually a good month overdue, as I actually started contemplating & writing this up a while back & was nearly 5am when I started to write this :S.

Its a funny little bugger thats underestimated & undervalued, they say time is money so surely that makes it moar valuable than any material commodity :O

For such a linear & fleeting or finite thing, its amazing how it can wrap back & bite one on the butt, drag when we need it to flow, disappear when we need it to last, timing is key but so many things miss their slot or apt moment :|

Over the past 3-5 years, a combination of my aging & the health problem I have, have made time a strange commodity, its bent and warped it, Ive almost... ney have been at times, in my own little bubble of it, days & months disappearing without notice, but at the same time hanging on it while I wait for an appointment or test to come round, some hope of a diagnosis or even cure :)

Seeing others around me come & go, again in their own little bubble, tho in their cases the bubble isnt as augmented as my own, wavering around what Id call normal time, like a plumb bob trying to find true vertical or better still several of them in front of each other,representing each persons time, flitting in and out of line with each other, while mine is literally like the string has been cut & its laying in the sand with its string coiled messily atop, totally displaced & disconnected from all the others still syncing at points in their swings with each other above, running out of kinetic energy & finding true vertical stillness like signifying the end of a life :S

How do we know when the right time for something is, how quick to move, how slow to pace & when somethings been given enuff time to give the desired or expected outcome or not?

How dcan we quantify This little blip, we occupy or travel through, in relation to the eons that have passed and will come to pass?

We so often squander the moments that we should savor & then curse the times when things will not come quick enough, hell, the amount of folks that spend all week waiting for that time to come that signals their time be it the end of a day or the end of their week, instead of just pausing & looking round, taking some breaths & letting a minute or two wash over them!

I guess this skewing of time also has the effect of skewing reality at times or at least pushing it off kilter, I know Ive woken at some stupid time of night or morning after being asleep over a day & struggling to make head & tail of what is going on & what Im gonna do till I briefly resync with the rest of the world :S

Anyway Ive spent far too much time here already & should get on with something today before heading off to the LFM :D

Ez Now, Gav ={[O.o]}=

Moar Ticks... Less Lists...

The main thing to say is Ive gone over the lists and lists of lists X| to find that theres still far to much to do in the little time that there really is :O As much as one tries it will always be hard to meet your own expectations and goals though thats not an excuse not to try :) Anyway this will... when sorted, be a kinda NYR to eliminate stuff that needs to be done, as Im still collating things and prioritizing things, which has never been a strong point when it comes to my own matters, prolly due to that sub conscious link we all have that creates the passion we have with anything of our own making :D

Well what can I say now...? Hopefully that just about sums it all up!
This said it has been a chunk of time since a post and not a major amount of change :(
Though appearances look like little of significance has actually happened in all areas atm, there has been progress with things in all areas :)

There still needs to be a lot done studio wise but little things have happened, main room has undergone a load of jiggling about, but there are records and computer bits everywhere from trying to sort out whats hot and whats not :S

Streamed broadcasts have been fun despite the odd hitch or problem, but coding server and site setup has been almost non existent, which is where I need to go now with finalizing graphics and which standardised layout to begin with :|
You can Listen & Watch on Feed 1 Feed 2 Chat and Everything Mysapce Wotnot by clicking them links!

I also made it to AWoL London after the LFM Xmas Party & had a class time at both despite travel rigmoroale making me tardy in all respects... but hey whats new there XD

I finally got to see Avatar the other day, With a bunch of localish friends Id not met before, which made it all the moar awesome! The film was in Real 3D, which was 90-95% spot on and I had no headache as some have commented, though think IMAX is definately the way to see it :)

Xmas, Festivus or whatever ya wanna call it was a wondeful and joyus family affair, which was great as Ive missed the last two due to health problems :| The preceding snow was highly required and tho I didnt get round to sledging in it, there was great fun had scrunching around in it and playing with it ;D

I Ate This :P

Mind Says Go, Body Says Noooee X|

I dont want this to be emo as I like to think Im never emo, down sometimes perhaps, but if so that will be due to valid circumstances, this said I still find myself severely lacking, things I have a drive for are not happening & this fatigue thing is doing my nut, I know even at 100% Ive got soo much to do, but in my current state even typing things into thi keyboard is a strain, it annoys me to say these things but its true, I dunno what moar to say, will try to do something with this track to make it a finished product after a shower, perhaps it will rekindle my mojo a little, any input good or bad is greatly recieved, enjoy:

Got the iMac running again this week tho Lepoard dont like one of the ram chips so gonna look to upgrade from 512MB to 1GB n hope it works then, but for now will live with Tiger, jus need to get a firewire cable so I can rig my DV hardware into Final Cut Pro & start archiving family videos :S

Need to get back to work on other comps & server again but dont think Ill get a mo till weekend or later :(

Lacking Luster, Need To Find Shiney :S

Well what can I say, despite doing what I can when I can last week was basically a loss as little of what I wanted to do was done :(

Still need to homogenise and upload the audio from 143 party, not to mention sorting out studio things aswell as getting back onto the car when the weathers acceptable.

Weekend was good though, spent sunday evening and monday at my friends mums 80th :)

Unfortunately spent the whole of today sparkers, only just woke and actually think Ill go back to land of nod again shortly :S

Though will enter the last few days of Golden Balls first which have been Wed-B Thur-A Fri-D Tue-C and can be done here: http://www.itv.com/Games/Gameshows/goldenballs/Competition/default.html

What a surprise :O
Another tardy post :)

So had a crazy w/e mashing up some tunes & seeing old friends at 143 Studios Party with my Sister n Her Housemates :)
Last minute decision to broadcast it kinda worked, it broadcast and some people saw it so theoretically it worked, but am saddened that the online recording didnt work :(
Still have the audio I recorded at same time as broadcast but was looking forward to their being a copy in the archive on livestream :S
Anyway will shortly be cutting said audio into podcasty chunks, homogenising and uploading somewhere for your listening pleasure :)

Not much moar to report on car front other than next phase is paint removal, welding, repairs and other fixes, then body prep, paint, refit, MOT, insurance and tax :O

I will be looking to broadcast on some kinda regular basis but the next definate marathon will be end of october http://www.livestream.com/highfurequency

Guess the last thing is to say 'Have a Goodun!' to all those at EF, though I know you will :)

Before I forget Im now gonna be posting lotsa balls as theres no moar Real Deal instead we now have Golden Balls :D
The last few days have been Thur-B Fri-B Mon-D Tue-B and can be dealt with here: http://www.itv.com/Games/Gameshows/goldenballs/Competition/default.html though Thusdays will close soon :O

Ez Now, Peace Out, Gav ={[O.o]}=

Vista Does Not Bring Brighter Horizons

Well finally after spending best part of the day trying to remove a file association in vista it appears its not possible I was about to mess about with things via and other keys:

But after a few moar googles trying to avoid links to things that charge I found this page http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/91920-unassociate-file-extention-type.html which leads to the free prog Unassoc.exe in a .zip here http://www.winhelponline.com/articles/231/1/An-Utility-to-Unassociate-File-Types-in-Windows-7-and-Vista.html the links hard to find on the page but its above comments and the mail subscription bit but below the big misdirecting download button :S

How or why .air files became associated with internet explorer ill never know but the fact MS have just eradicated the simple removing of an association and only left the option to change it to another file type fucking pisses me off no end,

I  fucking hate the fact Im like a sheep and continue to use your inferior syphilus riddled programs, I feel sick like Ive mixymatosis at your abundant unfailing way of always fucking up something that worked and only ever caused a problem to divs who shouldnt even be messing with these things.

May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits MS

Rant done, now for some noms ={[O.o]}=
You gotta wind the world up from time to time else it might stop turning :3
