There isn't much to say about me, but I'm a young lass living in Hampshire who's interested in walking, climbing, photography, computers, and all the usual gumpf.

This site contains lots of random stuff for/about/belonging to me that you may find of interest or use.

"Why does it keep stopping on its own?"

Taking a phone call today:
"I have two CCTV systems that keep stopping on their own"
I check the logs as the software explicitly logs why it stopped.
"Someone pressed the 'stop' button"
"Well, why doesn't it say that?"
"It does, there, where it says 'stopped monitoring'"
"Let me test... Well, why does this keep happening to two different machines in two different places?"
"Because two different people keep pressing 'Stop'!"
I resisted saying "two different idiots", but some people just can't see the obvious!

Communicado reply but wont pay damages

After my email yesterday to Communicado trying to claim damages, they have replied:

From: "Chris Comm" <chris@communicado.biz>
To: "'Deanna Earley'" <dee@earlsoft.co.uk>

Good Afternoon Deanna,
Thank you for your email.
I don't believe I've seen an email from you previously,
Certainly sometimes emails get held up somewhere.

Dear Communicado Ltd, Getting back at the spammers

After numerous spam to an email address I never send email from, so can only have been harvested or "guessed", I thought I'd try and get back at the spammers.

Here's the email I've just sent to the spam addresses and the company's domain contacts.
Tomorrow, it will be sent by registered post to confirm they've received it.
If there is no response after this, we'll be going to court.
Let's see how this pans out.

Opting in to uncensored internet

So, I will be optiing in to an uncensored internet. If I happen to get porn with that who cares, I'm an adult and it's legal.
I'm far more interested in free speech and not having some unknown government entity saying what I should and shouldn't be looking at. We're not in China. yet.

"I cannot accept this amendment"

So, yesterday saw the report stage of the Same Sex Marriage bil.

As the original bill had many issues for trans people, there were some amendments proposed to try and rectify these and make the bill a lot fairer in general, with an amazing speech from Julian Huppert.
