try all the emails you have, if you have forgotten them, does it really matter ?

POF webcam scam
Posted: 7/24/2018 10:01:23 AM
had something like it, used a yahoo email address, it has a couple of thousand of unread emails in it

not sure of the site, but it was free one, gave them card numbers off a credit generation site

would never offer advice to a scammer or spammer, but did have one who was using their isp to host their site and sent email, they lost that ability :)

When I block a user, can they still read the message I have sent them?
Posted: 7/24/2018 9:55:31 AM
some lass ? blocked me as was offline for a week

can see their messages, but can't reply to them

they may well have deleted their sent messages, but the ones I receive are local to me

The weird way women behave online
Posted: 7/24/2018 9:48:58 AM
Went away for a week and had next to no internet access as although the hotel had wifi, lots of people using it and came back to find some older lady has blocked me for not replying to her messages.

Bit of a shame, but not overly worried about it :)

Astrological signs do you rely on them?
Posted: 3/23/2017 3:14:05 AM
Recall a few years ago, one of the planets was deemed to be too small to be a planet and was designated an asteroid or something, people had to change all the tables to make them fit.

it is an interesting idea that sells almanacks at the seaside, but not to be taken seriously :)

Why does POF ask for someone's income level?
Posted: 7/11/2016 3:58:17 PM
not see adverts, helps people on similar income levels to chose.

never really bothered with income levels, although did get a lot of mail a while back when I got the amount too high :)

Posted: 5/15/2016 4:19:41 AM
Using chrome, right click image, search for image. find a lot of pop stars being used as main profile photo, yours comes up as you only :)

If guys or girls are using fake photos, then probably a scammer :)

camera shy
Posted: 5/15/2016 4:17:31 AM
Get a friend to take the photo when you are not aware of it.

Was taking photos at a local pub's beer festival and a friend admitted that she hates posing for photos, so got asked to take some photos of her when she did know about it.

Walked away and came back a few mins later, viewscreen open and at an angle so that the camera was being held at waist height or so, looks like you are simply carrying it. Took about 6 photos and then had some guy come up to me and accuse me of stalking / taking secret photos. Had enough by then, took them over to the lady who had been laughing at some jokes and she absolutely loved them :) Pointed to the bloke and he came over to apologise :)

windows vs mac
Posted: 8/6/2015 7:50:54 AM
mac's are used by the american military and so the chinese army are hacking macs, couple of recent trojans released for the mac

macs seem to use windows components with a 150% markup, limited user customisation if any and then more costly to purchase

tend to use windows for gaming as not into flight sims :)

Chinese Lanterns
Posted: 9/12/2014 6:07:53 AM
if you went running around the countryside flicking lit matches into dry crops, you would risk getting arrested for arson

if you use the lanterns, then not a lot happens apart from animals eating the wire remains, houses and fields set on fire and recall a photo of some 5 year old boy who looked up at the wrong to get an eyeful of wax...

Some moron used my email address
Posted: 9/12/2014 6:02:08 AM
had someone use my email address from a nearby town

the pizza and escort emails were annoying until I got a really abusive reply sent from him to his energy supplier, essentially complaining that he was paying for the old and new account and it was costing him loads of money, so did nothing for a few months

eventually told both energy companies that the dweeb was not me and that he needed a letter with simple to understand words that my email address was not his :)

As for the OP, edit the profile so that it is obvious that he is into dogging with doggies and likes all sort of weird stuff

you could post that he's a moron and doesn't even know his own email address onto the profile :)

"I am Seeking a Woman For Dating
About Adrian
Looking to meet new people. Newly single, interested in dating and a possible relationship. I feel like that comes naturally out of dating and that you should't have to declare that you want a relationship before agreeing to meet someone for a drink. I'm also a father of two beautiful little girls that I spend a lot of time with.

Not really sure about POF, lots of odd women desperately searching for someone to marry before even meeting them. Who are these people? But, like anything in life, you get out of it what you put into it. So here goes! "

north korea probably has a few nukes,

why has not america invaded them ? suspect the million strong army and a total lack of oil and not much other resources

iran has a lot of oil and are probably trying to get nukes to defend themselves from the americans who have lots of nukes and the israelis who also seem to have a lot of nukes

not as if america would invade a foreign power for a made up reason like iraq and more recently libya ?

Posted: 10/18/2012 10:34:59 AM
ISP used to use a LLU line from Be or Orange ?, had it's far share of issues and they often forgot to tell the isp that there was a problem

got the line upgraded to FTTC, BT engineers came and changed the line, so it would be reasonable to expect BT to let the sales team know...

instead I got 2 calls about moving to BT to be on a much faster line with FTTC, they have infinity where it is 80 GB but could not gurantee I would get it and the BT hub means that would not be able to use opendns...

hopefully there will be no more calls

Slow computer
Posted: 10/16/2012 1:03:38 PM
a quick look on the above seem to have missed doing it in safe mode, boot into windows pressing f8

get to a white text on black screen

chose safe mode with networking

boot into administrator account

goto malwarebytes.org, download their client, install, run and update

full scan, let it remove what it finds

if that fails, format c:, re-install windows, worse case scenario it is xp and takes you 3-5 hours max or it is win 7 where it takes 1-2 hours max

naturally you need to back up any documents, photos and music and are doing that on a regular basis to external media

blackviper.com is an old site, but gives you various configurations with simple explanations of what a process does, is it really needed etc, edited via services.msc on the run tab (start)

a lot of services that I do not need are blocked from ever starting, eg error reporting :)

had to deal with indian tech support, some guy called Paul, except we both knew that was not his name

had to endure an hour of script reading repeating the same stuff I had already carried out

luckily it was my parents line and not mine, had guessed the router was dead and they more or less gave up and passed me to an english speaker in england :)

router in the post sorted it....

been with merula for years, on the odd time I need to call them it is usually something major their end, talk to tech support and get honest answers.. No connection on wireless, lan to ubuntu and windows means it is the router or the line into it

comment from an american friend that came up with better free advice than his paid for work colleagues - he is their boss, seemed surprised that was not actually working in IT, just have to use it :)

Abu Hamza al-Masri's health has deteriorated
Posted: 10/14/2012 3:50:01 AM
suspect that if he had not preached to the masses about how evil this country was whilst taking thousands in benefits, then he would not have gotten any publicity and might have been ignored

as it was, he chose maximum publicity and now gets to spend the rest of his life in a maximum secure facility

one of the downsides of blowing up americans and inciting others to try the same is that the authorities take a really dim view on the matter

it is such a shame that his family could not emigrate to america to be near him

bad news on energy prices (again)
Posted: 10/14/2012 3:39:56 AM
Used to have a dual fuel account with Eon, then they informed me that they did not actually supply my gas, did not know who it was and it was upto me to find out who it was.. spoke to transco and it was Eon. They decided it was my fault that they messed up the billing and could I pay them £1500 now !

Told them to stuff it and paid it off £100 a month, looked for alternatives and could not find any better..

Few years down the line, had the same issue with electric, they denied being my supplier then found out they were and wanted to charge me lots, looked around and found equipower. Eon offered me a 9% discount, but too little, too late

Equipower are a non profit company and have no standing charge and a single rate making it easy to work out spending

Currently getting charged £8 per month for gas and £24 per month for electric, during the winter I tend to put on more clothes to keep warm instead of having the heating up high, seems to work :)
