Do Not Type Like This

So I Randomly Got Sent A Message Over MSN That Was Meant To Close And Stop Working Over A Week Ago When We Started Typing Like This And Fuck It Is Annoying To Read, Slow To Type And Overall A Pointless Exercise To Even Bother With As My Friend Would Put It.

I Am Sure You Have Seen Online On Some Forum Or Blog With People Doing This But I Do Not Get Why. Are People Just That Lazy (well Actually It Took Me More Effort To Do This Than To Type Normally) Or Are They Germans Learning English And Do Not Understand We Don’t Need To Capitalise Nouns?

Political Correctness has made us racist

I am sure everyone has heard of the term “political correctness” but if you have not it is basically a term used for all the bullshit people say you must do when really no really gives a shit. I am sure you have noticed in the media you will always hear people call a “different coloured” skin person a “African American” although the person may actually have been born in Europe but hey, political correctness means we must apply a Government approved label to everyone.

So while we have our African-American what do you think we call “white coloured people” these days?

Caucasian, British, Irish, American or well whatever said person comes from is normally the answer. Think back for a few minutes when you last filled in a Government issued form, applied for a job or hell even ordered something online today you will always see a bit where it asks about skin colour and yes really you do on Government forms. Quite a funny logic when you see those forms are to “help” the person reading it to make a choice so they are not racist because having to allow X amount of people who apply to something have to be “non-white” is not racist at all.

Depends on your luck

The Postcode Lottery

What if I told you today that you that you have a rare form of cancer but sadly there is nothing I can do in helping you treat it other than end of life care and hope for the best. What if I tend told you that when you went home, you learn on Facebook a friend of yours also has this cancer but have a new treatment that will treat it.

If I was you I would be thinking “What the hell!?, is that private?” but that is exactly what is happening today in the United Kingdom and that is a game we like to call – “The Postcode Lottery”.

Is it time for Web Hosting regulations?

When you read this article, be aware I have no issues with small businesses or web hosts, this article is debating should web hosts actually have some form of regulation or making it more “ethical” in the larger sense- read on as I explain many problems I have experienced.

If you are an owner of a website you have likely used many “not well-known” web hosts and if you have, you likely have screwed over at one point. As you may know that if you wanted to get into the web hosting industry you could do it for, well, nothing if you actually looked around.

Randomly appearing food

Out of all my articles that talks about random things – this one beats them all.

Let me set the background. So yesterday night I was typing away on my laptop then the thought slowly came to me that I really should have a nap for an hour or so and then carry on. So I turn the music down, switch over all chat clients over to my PDA and then push my laptop to the side and lay down.

After a few minutes I went to sleep. A short while later (around thirty minutes later), I hear my PDA buzzing like there is no tomorrow and woke up where suddenly, on my laptop lid I see the following.

Confused, I opened it up to check what it actually was and well, it was chips and cheese.

At this point, I was again confused. So after eating the chips and cheese and then replying to a few messages, I then went on to wonder a few things. First of all, why the hell was their chips and cheese from what appeared to be from a fast food outlet next to me when no one else was even here ?

So peeps I have a question for you all.

Do you know where this place could have been, it was nice -  I would not mind going there myself. If the packaging and the style of the chips etc ring a bell with any major fast food outlets, let me know

Would have took better pictures, but I did not turn the light on and well I did not actually plan on writing this article – I was just gonna post it on Twitter with the message how the hell did that get there but this morning I figured an article would have be better.

Wait, protect those batteries

It will not come to a shock to anybody reading this website that most stores no matter where they sell always rely on up selling to make extra profit. Everyone has their own view points on this but my issue is how far some companies will go just to make that little extra …

When I was out in town shopping around for a new laptop it came to my attention that I will need to buy some new batteries. Seeing I was already in a store, I looked around to see if there was any cheap batteries and to my surprise there was.

Legal thief

Having been within the hosting industry I have seen many web hosts oversell their disk space but more importantly their data transfer and ultimately their bandwidth. This article is not about that though as I am sure you can read the horrors of mass overselling on Webhosting Talk but rather more about the oversell of bandwidth on the backend of the Internet – The Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

It is no secret that Internet Service Providers do over sell their bandwidth as otherwise they would not make as large amount of profit (no matter what ISP tells you, they are lying until they can prove otherwise which they have NOT yet done at the time of posting). They know or rather they hope that not everyone will use their connections at the same time as if they do then they know everything is going to lagging hell.

I am sure your Internet Service provider does the same. Go and check their terms of service and if it says something like the following then you can be sure your Internet Service Provider is overselling.

In order to give the best service possible, we limit your max speeds during peek times in order to allow others to have  a good browsing experience.

What that basically means is the following:

LOL we are so totally over selling our bandwidth and if people starts to try and use what they paid for during peek hours when everyone else is on then our systems is going to crash and burn LOL

Oh and if we see you using to much data transfer out of your unlimited amount which we can not physically supply anyway then we are going to ban you for “excess amount of usage”. Oh and we also do not give your MAC addresses without maxing out your credit card LOLZOALG

Thing is, Internet Service Providers simply can not handle the amount of people they are selling too. They really just hope you do NOT use what you pay for and if you do then they will either cap you further (and then blame it on you are using to much), block you or something on those lines.

I am sure you are now asking – But at least it is cheaper for me. Due to overselling their bandwidth they are passing the savings onto me. Well the answer is no they are not. You are not getting any savings out of it and ultimately, you are losing OUT on what you pay for as you simply can not use it (if you get the full speed in the first place).

And Internet Service Providers will not admit it although everyone knows they do it as simply if they do then customers will moan saying they are not getting what they pay for.

So what happens when you actually complain about your Internet connection being capped. Well, it sounds something like this:

You: Hello. I am currently ringing up wondering why my Internet connection speed is less then 512kbps even though I pay for a 8mb broadband and have a unlimited data transfer plan.

Support: नमस्ते, मेरा नाम एलन है

You: Umm, hello ?

Support: आज मैं तुम्हें कैसे मदद कर सकता

You: Do you speak English ?

Support: क्या आप चाहते हैं कि साथ आलू

You: Can I speak to someone else ?

Support: मैं समर्थन कर रहा हूँ .. me no do ?

You: Can I speak to a manager please ?

Being forwarded please hold…

Manager: مرحبا كيف يمكنني مساعدتك اليوم

You: Oh fuck this shit.

And then when you come to cancelling it the same thing happens. So ya to sum it all up. Internet Service Providers do not provide you with what you are actually paying for and if you use to much then you are kicked off.

Oh well, 3G time I guess.
