    Owing to bad weather – Mr. Rant..

     Posted in Public Information at 8:19 on Thursday, February 5th, 2009 by Mr. Rant

    Has decided to stay at home and enjoy the warmth of a lovely fire and a nice cup of tea.  Seriously, no-one can believe the amount of snow we’ve had over night in Birmingham, about 2 inches where I am this morning.

    Is what I would like to say to grammar Nazis that lurk around public forums on the internet.  if you’ve been following my bloggings you will realise that I am part of a Political forum, the link for said forum is on this very page.  I tend to hide on these forums and only write something when I deem that a point has not been put across.

    I’m generally not aggressive unless you’re wrong.  No, that’s a bit strong, I’m never aggressive… much.  I’m assured that my opinion is welcomed and maybe even agreed with and we’re all human and make mistakes in our text based lives.  I am however aggravated by you Mr. Grammar and you Mrs. Comma in the Wrong Place.

    I think we all have a right to free speech and as long as you can read it there isn’t a problem or is there?

    I’ll leave that for you dear reader to decide.

    Lets bugger the economy up….

     Posted in Anger Level 3 & Public Information & Regeneration & Thoughts on Things... at 21:37 on Monday, November 24th, 2008 by Mr. Rant

    I’m sure that’s what Alistair Darling has been thinking during the preparations for the Pre-Budget speech he gave today.  I think it’s important to note that; we are in dire straits with the current financial climate and that we should patch together some kind of rescue plan for the country but not by risking the future for everyone.

    Alistair Darling... What game are you playing?

    Alistair Darling... What game are you playing?

    It would seem that we’re in deeper than anyone would care to mention and this is of course a worry statistic.  In Darling’s speech he outline several tax exceptions and cost cutting measures that will hopefully help the economy to recover as quickly as possible, when you say quickly, you think months, and certainly not years, but Darling is planning to have this all buttoned up by somewhere around 2015 – 2016, that’s eight years away.

    This worries me and I’m sure it does a great deal of other people.  The next few years are to be hard ones.  Taking into account that the debt of the country will even out at around half a trillion pounds, thats bad enough, but when you work out that there are roughly 60,776,238 people (that’s a rough estimate and is probably a little higher), in the UK, you soon discover that the total national debt per head lies at around; £8,226.90 by 2016, that’s still a high price to pay for bringing this recession under control quickly.

    Computer Issues, Dns and such…

     Posted in Public Information & Technology at 23:40 on Saturday, November 8th, 2008 by Mr. Rant

    Recently we’ve been have some problems updating from Microsoft, yes we’re all whores to the mighty corporation.  It’s been rather perlexing trying to get it all back to normal and I’ve even formatted my harddrive just to make sure there isn’t any spyware remaining on my laptop.

    So I knew that my laptop was clean.

    There were some wierd entries on the DNS on the router it’s a Netgear DG384GT router and modem.  I’ve just reset the router to factory settings and it’s all clear and working again, just for the record if you have this problem make sure you spyware scan first then, check your DNS entries on you router and that should solve it.
