Gaddappy New Single

Dappy from N-Dubs has released a new single called “No Regrets”. So I decided to make this image of Gaddaffi as a tribute.

Tesco Complaint Reply

Cool Story Bro

Cool Story Bro

That’s what I wish they sent me, but unfortunately they didn’t. Below is the email I did however receive.

The Reply

Dear Ben

Firstly, I would like to apologise for the delay in responding to you.

I’m very sorry that you were unhappy with quality of the Tesco Wholemeal Pitta Breads that you purchased in your local store.I appreciate how disappointing this must have been for you.

First of all, please let me assure you that we only buy the highest quality produce from our suppliers. Our staff also inspect our produce when it arrives from our distribution depots and while it is on sale in our stores, to make sure that it is in perfect condition. I can only apologise that, despite these measures, you still experienced a problem.

Once again, I would like to apologise and thank you for bringing this to our attention.

Kind Regards

So they apologise countless amount of times and don’t really give a reason for my my product was mouldy. They basically say that they buy the highest quality products from their suppliers, then they check the produce when it arrives in their depot and in store to make sure it’s in perfect condition. According to that, then they didn’t do their jobs to the high standards to what they are stating surely?

Should I reply? Comment below and let me know what you think.

Mouldy Tesco Pita Bread

I don’t have to explain because the email says it all. When they reply I’ll let you know.

The email

Hello,

Today 19/08/11 at 12:30 I bought Tescos own ‘Wholemeal Pita bread’ pack to have for my lunch.

To my surprise, once I arrived back to work to make said lunch, I opened the packet and noticed the green mould covered on the pitas. I however, only noticed this as I had finished packing the pitas with other Tescos products. As any normal person, I decided against eating them.

Before throwing the Mouldy Tesco Pita Bread in the bin, I took some photos to prove my complaint. The quality isn’t to great as they are taken on my phone. They are attached in this email.

Messed Up Dreams

Every now and then I have the strangest of dreams. I’m pretty sure everyone occasionally has a ‘weird’ dream. People say that eating cheese and dairy products before you go to sleep can cause ‘nightmares’. This is due to dairy products being digested slowly or something. Also having something on your mind like relationship problems or family problems can cause them, even when you don’t think you have any issues, subconsciously you might have.

Last night I had a very odd dream. It’s one of the strangest I’ve had. I woke up thinking it actually happened, which was ridiculous. But I can’t seem to stop thinking about it. It’s the impossible mixed with the logical. In fact it was so weird it could have been its own movie.

So it started off with me at this place I’ve never seen before, no idea how I got there or why I was there. I was with someone and I also have no idea who this someone was, but I think I knew them. Great start hey!…

Hosting Kerfuffle

So I decided today that I wanted a new hosting server for this site. But which one shall I choose? Also, as the domain name is still wordpress.com I was going to buy a ‘.co.uk’ or ‘.com’.

Many hosting servers provide you with a ‘free’ domain name. The ‘free’ part will be included in the overall bill, obviously. So I was thinking that I might as well pay for a hosting server. Searched for cheap hosting sites and got a ‘top 10’ list. Had a look and most were similar prices. They say things like £1.95 per month, but the catch is either that it is only for the first month and you pay £6 for the duration of the contract. Or one site said it costs £1.90 per month…for 60 months! That’s 5 years! Thus paying something like £140 (inc VAT) upfront! Yes. Upfront! Not paying per month. All the sites I looked at wanted payment upfront. No monthly payment plans at all. Shocking.

Besides that, I found one site called Fatcow.com that seemed a decent price. £30 upfront for a year wasn’t too bad, including a domain name and ‘unlimited’ disk space and bandwidth so on, so forth. Within reason, the terms and conditions say. It’s only for personal and small businesses. So I guess that using it for some sort of file sharing website would be against their policy. Also many of these sites run off ‘wind power’, not that this would make me buy their service any more.  So ‘Fatcow’, I decided to have a chat with them.

They have a ‘live chat’ window for your queries, which I took advantage of.
