Bilstein don't seem to be bothered with being misrepresented

I guess they are too busy with their elevator business?

www.bilsteinus.com is their official website not www.bilstein-us.com and it certainly makes more sense if you go there.

Bilstein US are North American outlet for German made truck suspension parts, and their are probably many companies that represent their products outside Europe.

Bilstein ThyssenKrupp is a division of ThyssenKrupp AG, a diversified industrial group with traditional strengths in materials and a growing share of capital goods and services businesses.

Why you won't find any real information about me online

Because there is none there!

I have not posted anything about myself online using my real name. If you fond any it is likely to have been fabricated by someone who doesn't like what I have said about them.

I am not famous, my name is quite common and without a company name it is difficult to determine any connection. In any case when I was working as an engineer it was before the Internet existed so there is little chance that you would find anything even if you did know who I worked for.

Similarly, you will not find any information related to me at the institution that I earned my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering. I can say that I was employed by Marconi when I was a student and after graduation.

I generally despise Social Media. I do have a Facebook account but that is under an Alias, and we all know what that is all about! I do not have any friends or follow anyone on Facebook as the only reason for having the account is so that I can logon and see other peoples Facebook offerings. I haven't logged on to Facebook in months however my anagy_99 email address gets at least 3 friend requests every day! This is very irritating and along with mail from Twitter I filter it straight into a Spam folder in the Outlook account for Andy.

I have posted my thoughts about LinkedIn on this blog and my website so you can read about them in other posts.

Alternately, I am a terrorist and Cyber Bully that just wants to keep my identity secret.

Would you do business with this man?

Say for arguments sake:
I sent a hard drive into a service that promised to recover corrupted data and files from that drive.

Also say:
The drive I sent in contained files of a pornographic and illegal nature that I would not want revealed.

On sending the drive to this service the offending files were discovered and the company doing the recovery contacted me and asked about how the files got there.


Why would I do this?

Wayne McAlpine said:
Event said that he would publish all over the internet that we were Liars thieves and cheats this obviously was for Martin winter to remove the spotlight off himself and his tools The Technology Muse and anagy_99@hotmail.com tempusfugit or tempusfugit.ca

I have never had that conversation with Wayne McAlpine. However, it is self evident to anyone who has done business with him that he is "a liar and a cheat".

Posting on this blog and my website tempusfugit.ca is hardly "all over the Internet". Sending a couple of emails under an assumed name is hardly the crime of the century. What tools?

Imbecile

"With the eyes of a fool", he said
"You see the state you're in -
And still you stumble through your stupid life
Still you laugh and grin
Vagabond on a winding road
That only leads you down
Blind to the dangers and dismay
That wipe the innocent smile away
From the face of a laughing clown."
"Imbecile, you are acting like a fool again
In a world of thieves all ready to run you down
Imbecile, they are waiting till you make the first mistake
And you're going to make it -
That's why I'll always call you an Imbecile."

"You weren't always a sorcerer,"
The Joker then replied
"It seems to me you learned it on the way
You live by tricks and lies
Standing 'round in your juggler's gown
There seems no reason why
Flashing your eyes and casting spells
With candles and signs and magic bells
Oh, you are the fool, not I."

"Imbecile, you can call me that if you feel the need
But life is short and I am living it while I can
If it rains, I'll get wet but in the sunshine I'll be dry
It is you who are foolish
Just 'cause I laugh don't call me an Imbecile

Another day in the life of TempusFugit

One of the 7 Billion (minus 6 and counting).

Yes I have time on my hands, time indeed to settle a few scores.

The previous post in this vein garnered some interest that prompted a quest to contact all the churches in Suffolk to see if they had heard of me. I guess if they had they could be informed about how bad I was a person! All the nasty things that I had done online and all the lies that I had made up about poor defenceless people. I am not sure how this would have been presented, by a "failed" business person from Saskatoon in Canada. What possible relevance would it have to the ecclesiastical community in the UK? What with struggling congregations I would have thought all would be welcome, whatever their past deeds.

Back to the day........ Normally this starts as I reported before - over my morning coffee I go online to see who has visited my website and this blog. To see what new nonsenses there are. I might even launch the TOR browser to browse anonymously although I realise this could be a trigger for the security services to flag me as a subversive. After all, anyone who uses TOR is doing so to either access the "Dark Web" or is up to criminal activity such as posting the information on how to build a home-made bomb. (Thank you Mr.Petraeus).

Having had coffee and done the washing up from the previous nights dinner it is time for a shower and to get up properly. Maybe a walk in the country to pick some blackberries or damsons or even a quick flight over the neighbourhood.

My efforts regarding the update of my website have waned of late. I have made some updates to my new UK website but I am now concentrating on this blog. Posts on some of the issues that I covered on my Canadian site have been posted and I am waiting to see if they are found by visitors. It is a lot of work updating a website for what are limited returns. As I have no commercial reason to maintain a website there is little reason to expend a major effort there.
Also due to the fact that Wayne McAlpine has tainted the names TempusFugit and TheTechnologyMuse I have changed the name of this blog to "Musing from the UK". This is a pity as I stand by the use of the names, although I have moved on from the "technology" theme. I still have the desire to continue with Temusfugit, hence the name of my current UK site. The theme is still the passage of time. As for this blog, I would export and re-import all the content to a blog with another name (other than technology-muse.blogspot.com) but Wayne McAlpine would not be able to find it and see what I have posted about him. Still, it is pretty irrelevant what the URL of the blog is in any case as Google will continue to send visitors my way.

Since I have worked out what Wayne McAlpine is on about when he claims that he has not been paid for SEO and "business services" related to the promotion of websites, I take great pleasure in visiting as many of his domains to further distort the web statistics that he uses to show that his SEO campaign works. It doesn't! This heavy-handed approach has long been recognised by Google as SPAM, and has no effect on page/site ranking. The real measure for SEO success is the increase in conversions of visits into sales, if that is what the purpose of the site was I the first place. This is what Morris Brown was hoping for and what Wayne McAlpine  and Joshua Sham promised him and they failed to deliver. I am not surprised that he refuses to pay them.

As I say on my UK website (T---F---.me.uk) I did spend some time creating a Village website. This was because it was a legal requirement for the Parish Council and they were in violation of transparency laws when we took it over. It is this that leads me to maintain that the running of a website is a lot of work. I also advised the Village Hall committee about the creation of a website to promote village events. I told the person in charge of this promotion that using Wordpress would be more trouble than it was worth. He ignored my advice and the Village Hall website is pretty useless in my opinion. Much like a lot of other sites I see created with the tool.

Another pastime is the great TV that we currently have available to us. Here is another possible way of getting at us - we do not have a TV License. The reason for this is that we don't watch live TV or the BBC on Catch-Up. The finer points of this will be unknown to Wayne McAlpine but if he looks he will see that it is a criminal offence to not have a licence and be watching in that manner. All he needs to do is to claim that we are and we maybe charged. The fact that we don't should not prove a problem for him as he has claimed all sorts of thing about me that are not true!
What with the last season of Game of Thrones there have been a lot of interesting series that we have downloaded. It is interesting that our ISP does not block thepiratebay, BT does and when we connected through them I had to use obfuscation techniques. Oh! I am so bad!!!!

Cyber Bullying

As I said before "pot calling the kettle black"!

Wayne McAlpine says on his Dura Brake site:

(Wayne McAlpine) has done his part by registering the personal names of the directors as websites and intentionally published erroneous statements to embarrass and portray these people as “a scam and a fraud.”

I change the name on the Dura Brake site to the real perpetrator of these claims.

If you look at the registration of all these "websites" they are registered in the company name of OneWorldICP.com - the company owned by Wayne McAlpine. So much for Morris Brown stealing them???

I feel cheated that I am not personally named on this website.

Something I received 19 June 2016

An earlier communication that I had received about the antics of Wayne McAlpine

The highlighted text below is an extract of an email sent to me:

We were contacted by the police, about two years ago, because Wayne had an altercation with a teenage boy on the street (Wayne called the police to complain that the boy had stepped onto his lawn and "trespassed"). It was around this same time we found out that Wayne McAlpine didn't even have a driver's license.... the same man that is a mechanical engineer and Nascar winner. The exciting news for Wayne is that he has been taking driver training!!! In the past couple of months the driver trainer has pulled up in front of his house to pick him up for driver training lessons.... just so happened that a few of us neighbors decided to pull out our lawn chairs and sit on the lawn facing him, right where he could see, when he arrived home from his driving lesson. To date, he isn't driving alone, so he either hasn't gone for his drivers test or he has failed. 

Wayne McAlpine  is a scam and a con-artist. 

Thank you for your work. It has not gone unnoticed. We have information on our end also. I am not sure how we can work together, but I hope that we can to stop him from the fraud and theft that is going on.

I am not making this up!

This extract was from an email that appeared to have been prompted by someone finding "Pinocchio series" the website(s) created by Morris Brown. This was an early attempt by Wayne Morris Brown to expose Wayne McAlpine and Joshua Sham and accuse them of "cheating" him in the delivery of a redesigned website for TheRamMan.com. Morris Brown expanded this attack with one featuring ArcDis Corp.

Now in April 2017, Wayne McAlpine continues to be interested in what I post about him!

Actually, it is now July 2017 and I was looking back at some of my previous posts and thought that this was a good one to promote.

An apology to the family and estate of the Late Lindor Reynolds

I would apologise to the Reynolds family for any unpleasantness that my dealings with Wayne McAlpine may have cause you.

The incident to which I refer relates to a series of communications that I had with Lindor about Wayne McAlpine. He is now claiming that I had told her that if she didn't report what I had told her I would set out on an attack to made her look corrupt. I did no such thing.

Wayne McAlpine does not even recognise her untimely death. This only goes to show the heartless and manipulative nature of the man. I think that you can see this if you read some of the posts that I have made about his activities in the past.

While it is true that I contacted her under an alias, I did so as I was aware of the unstable nature of Wayne McAlpine and his associates. My approach to her at the Winnipeg Free Press was an attempt to get to the bottom of the story regarding Wayne McAlpine, the CAIRSS and the MPI immobiliser program. I could not understand how such a deviant individual could have been quoted in an article by Lindor.

In addition, I am also aware that Anthony Mannella, of the CAIRSS, also contacted Lindor and told her that I had been harassing Wayne McAlpine for some time previous to the immobiliser incident. While this was true it was due to the facts that I had established about his activities up to that point. These and the methods that he used to counter my claims about him. Anthony Mannella even suggested to her that she might consider doing an article about Cyber-Stalking" as that was what I had been doing to Wayne McAlpine for many years. This is true, I was using the same sort of techniques that he was using against me and probably many others he had previous business with. I also called him a Cyber Bully - I still maintain that this is the case.

Now in 2017, Wayne McAlpine is still in the same modus operandi in that he is still pursuing this "bullying" stance. The main reason for this is that a certain Morris Brown had taken him to task for the non-delivery of a strategy to grow his business TheRamManInc. I am sure if you make a search for this and theramman.com you will see the nonsense of what I speak.

You may also to asking what is my stake in all this. Well, again if you take the trouble to look you will find that he has made some pretty vile statements about me and my intentions. For these I feel that he needs to be held to account.

DuckDuckGo and TOR

TOR uses DuckDuckGo for its search engine.

When I see visits to this blog from DuckDuckGo searches I am a little suspicious.

$300,000US for services from ArcDis - you must be joking! Content, Marketing, Accounting Services, SEO --- I hope that you still have Joshua Shams permission to post those videos.

Content: Public Safety News indeed! You need to be consistent. There is no point in posting random articles that have no relevance to the subject in question at the same time claiming that an unsafe product is being sold. It only goes to making you look more stupid.

As I said before, Morris Brown is not your problem. Do yourself a favour and forget Morris, you are not going to get any money from him and his business is as lame as yours.

Does this chimney look right?

I think it should have a chimney pot.


I get in now!

I could not see what the relevance of the web statistics were. They are an attempt to show that SEO (Search Engine Optimisation - for those who might not know) work was performed and was not paid for. ----- Hence this is the perpetuation of a fraud or a scam.

This is pathetic, let me explain why.

The reports posted are ALL for domains owned by Wayne McAlpine. If they were owned by the people that he is trying to impersonate then they could be paid for. They are not and the domains were registered by Wayne McAlpine to either discredit an individual or company or to provide incoming links to a website that Wayne McAlpine was trying to promote. He doesn't seem to realise that Google are fully aware of this technique and their algorithm will discount such links.

It is easy to inflate such reports as visits by the author of the site are included in them. A way of making the reports look like the site is popular is to visit them yourself. This is a bit like masturbation, a subject that Wayne McAlpine seems to be fixated with! While it is true that I had visited the site that Wayne McAlpine had created in my name, to see what nonsense he had posted, I certainly did not commission the site. To suggest that I have not paid him for it is ludicrous. Especially if you look at the content on such sites.

As for the hours that Wayne McAlpine has spent on research and SEO, I would suggest that he finds a better use for his time as he clearly has no clue.

Wayne McAlpine has long acknowledged that I am far more knowledgeable at SEO than he. If I were to require such services I certainly would not choose him. I can see how someone like Morris Brown may have believed McAlpine into thinking that he could grow his business by the application of SEO to his website. This SEO strategy involved the registration of multiple domains and using these to promote the theramman.com site by providing incoming links. Brown was probably under the impression that these domains were registered in his name, hence his charge that McAlpine "stole" them from him. The services of ArcDis Corp., with the front of Joshua Sham, were a nonsense from the start and Brown was rightfully upset.

Finally, on the subject of web statistics, Google Analytics would have been a better tool to show whether an SEO program was working. As Wayne has been aware over the years much more user data is included in the Analytics reports. Information such as the source of the visits and what pages were viewed. Search keywords have ceased to be available from Google as I am sure Wayne is aware. He was certainly "rattled" by the fact that I was publishing the Keywords that he used to find my website. Keywords such as Dickey Crescent and his associates names. Also I managed to get Google to index my pages with just one website, I did not need to register multiple domains - in fact, as I don't run a business, why would I want to?

I guess the lie of me choosing him for SEO is just as unbelievable as me sending him a hard drive. Both activities have been criticised by me. I believe, in general, both these activities are often scams.

Serious Weed killer

I will have to treat the Blackthorn stumps with SBK


The weeds and nettles are starting to grow back in all my good work.



Why I am doing all this?


Well, as someone has stated - I have time on my hands. This is a consequence of being retired and financially independent (I don't need to work or have to rely on a pension).

I have an on-going discussion with my partner about who someone should be concerned about "crossing". She says that most people would say her, but it is really me! I admit that I have a vindictive streak that I probably inherited from my mother. If I find something or someone who annoys me I will pursue it until I get satisfaction. My partner is the "aggressive" one in our relationship and most people know not to get into arguments with her as she is likely to win. I, on the other hand, appear to be the quiet and passive one.

Do I really care that Wayne McAlpine is telling lies about me on line? Well, wouldn't anyone be annoyed about it being claimed that I sent him a disc drive for repair that he subsequently found "disturbing" images? He only came up with that story in 2016 when I stepped up my pursuit of him due to the fact that I became aware of Wayne Morris Brown's attempts to give Wayne McAlpine a taste of his own medicine. I have never talked with Morris Brown and certainly didn't encourage him to quote the pages on this blog and my website about Wayne McAlpine and OneWorld.

My dispute with Wayne McAlpine goes back to 2009 when I made a criticism of his data recovery service. A service that I have a statement from him that it was a "failed venture" between him and a Virus Protection company that he was representing as part of the OneWorld empire. This was in 2009, the OneWorld empire no longer exists only in the form of OneWorldICP.net, the entity that McAlpine registers all his Internet domains.

Over the period of 2009 to 2016 Wayne has continued to be interested in what I have been saying about him on line. I had seen a constant trail of visits to this blog and my website. During that period I saw many dubious activities with various automotive ventures. This includes VSIB, CARISS and latterly the work that he and Joshua Sham did for TheRamMan. This involved the fiasco of immobilisers for vehicles in Manitoba and the fact he was still in association of individuals such as Anthony Mannella who denied that he even knew Wayne McAlpine. Mannella even went on the support McAlpine in the claim that I was making false statements about them. This was after I had found clear connections between them all on online profiles such as LinkedIn.
It was over this period that I attempted to get to the bottom of the story by writing to Lindor Reynolds at the Winnipeg Free Press and Brian Smiley at the Manitoba Public Insurance.
I did this under my alias of TempusFugit as at that time I was still anonymous to McAlpine.

When I first registered the domain tempusfugit.ca I used my real name. When Wayne McAlpine started his campaign against me I changed this to a pysdonym. On moving to the UK I changed it back to my real name as I was not worried about Wayne or anyone else knowing. The fact that he makes a big point that I am trying to be evasive by not using my name is nonsense. In fact the only reason that he knows my real name is that Anthony Mannella told him as I was in communication with him where I made no attempt to disguise myself. The screenshot of my registration details was faked by Wayne McAlpine as he was still was of the opinion that I was trying to withhold it. This is the same as the photograph that he posted of Ken Thorpe's lawn - a complete fabrication.

Do I want Wayne McAlpine to remove the information about me on his numerous websites?
Definitely not! I think that they show that he is a moron as they are so stupid!

I recommend that he does remove the postings as they only show him as the charlatan that he is.

I will continue to post in this manner as I find it quite amusing that he still has interest in this subject. I also note that he has not updated the website that he created in the name of this blog (.com). This is due to the fact that he has nothing new on me apart from his assertion that I am complicit with Morris Brown, Skip Evers and the Thorpes.

It will soon be time for some fires

I have several piles of Blackthorn cut into lengths for the wood-burning stove.


To think that the space above was impregnable this time last year!



The Bergamot by the side of the pond needs another strim.

joshua-sham.com

joshua-sham.com is now available to be registered again.

The link to it has also been removed from Wayne McAlpine's stupid website. As is the link to Elder Rubber Inc. It seems that I was correct about my summation about that.

Joshua Sham told me that he knew that Wayne McAlpine had registered a domain in his name but had not given him any access to it. Joshua told me that Wayne said that it was registered so that he could manage the information found about him online. I guess he was referring to the ArcDis Corp. fiasco, in which he and Josh supposedly ripped-off Morris Brown.

Joshua also told me that he had deregistered the corportation ArcDis and he wanted nothing more to do with  either Wayne McAlpine or Morris Brown. Josh told me that he wanted to get on with the rest of his life and never speak with Wayne McAlpine or Morris Brown again.

Josh is a bright guy and I have had a few good rational conversations with him. This is more than I can say about Wayne McAlpine! I am not sure who funded the MBA course in Toronto as he was working with Wayne at CARISSS when I became aware of it. However, it proves to me that he is not stupid, which makes me wonder why he would have even got involved with McAlpine in the first place.

Joshua contacted me to ask if I would remove things that I had posted about him on by blog and website. He told me that he was not my enemy. I told him that I could not remove the information as it was intertwined with my criticism of Wayne McAlpine and he was still me enemy. I reached an agreement with Joshua and some of that information has been removed as I basically think that Josh is a good guy and needs to be allowed to get on with his life.

No doubt Josh will now be removed the list of one of the 7 Billion who don't have a problem with Wayne McAlpine. All I need now is to get a few more names removed from  that list. How about Anthony Mannella and Terry Bradshaw, both of which Joshua tells me are "reasonable" guys. If so, why did they ever get involved with Wyane McAlpine?

Claas Lexion 570+



The digital media features in Windows XP?

This is 2017 - what is Windows XP?

Search me if I can see a reference to the person "embracing" them! If you are going to quote an article that possibly shows you as someone who has benefited the masses I would have thought you could come up with something better.

Why should I, and any other person finding the quote, believe this or any of the other fantasies that you are saying make you look good? I'm sure that the University of Saskatchewan would beg to differ.

An apology to Fred Emslie

I would like to take the time to make an apology to Fred Emslie of Fred Emslie and Sons automotive repair shop. When I made a review of your business on my then fledgling website tempusfugit.ca I was doing so to thank you for your excellent service. Little did I know at the time that there would be a mad man that would make the assumption that I was one of your employees.

I am pretty sure that you did not see the website that was created by that mad man but I can be sure that he likely contacted you on the telephone and was probably abusive. I make this assumption as the person making the false claims was posting your telephone number and business address online as one for me. He obtained that information from looking at old webpages that I had long removed from the Internet using a tool called TheWayback Machine. I removed that information as I had mad that posting in an anonymous manner and without your permission of knowledge. When it came to be abused I was no longer in contact with you as had purchased a new vehicle and has no need for your excellent services. Still, I felt that the attention that the certain person was giving you was unwarranted.

I would hazard a guess that you wondered what it was all about at the time and possibly didn't even remember doing business with me. I hope that you were not inconvenienced by these attentions. Sadly, that is the nature of the person making the approaches to you. This person, when crossed, seems to stop at nothing to seek revenge against the person who he has a disagreement with and often included others that he thought were associated with them. A lot of this was carried out, and still is, online and manifests itself in the creation of websites where he posts all his lies. You, I'm afraid, were an early victim.

Since that time, and we are talking over 5 years ago, he has got far more active in this area and I have lot count of all the domain names that this person has registered. To cut a long story short this renewed activity is due to a dispute that the person in question had with someone else not related to our dealings. Someone who an assumption was made that I was colluding with in a plot to discredit him. This is also not the case!

Once again, sorry for involving you in all this. By mentioning you now it is likely that the person involved may attempt to contact you again. Please feel free to discuss anything that you know about me as he is convinced that he can discredit me even at this late stage. I won't mention my name here as it was not relevant at the time and it is still not. The person I refer is convinced that I am upto no good by representing myself under an alias, this includes this blog. I think that if you take the time to see what I have posted over the years it has nothing to do with deception and "skullduggery" to use the words of a mad man!

A green and pleasant land

I was surprised this morning that there was nothing on the news that today is the anniversary of 9/11

As my act of remembrance I thought that I would post some photos of more pleasant things.


Bringing in the harvest. A view of one of the fields at the bottom of the garden. I believe that is a Class Lexion 570+ you see on the field there. I will be posting more about that later.


Above is the farm where we picked many kilos of plums. Plums that have been turned into Jam for sale in fund raising for the less fortunate of this fine area that we live.



A view looking down the garden. The trees are starting to show their autumnal colours.

We are not sure what created the crater in the above picture. It can only be seen on the map and from the air. You can reach it by footpath but you would not be able to see the perspective.


Sun shining through the trees at the bottom of the garden. This was taken pretty much at ground level but still from my new toy.


Another shot looking down the garden


More fields on the walk into town.


We will have to make the full walk. Maybe not both ways as we always have the option of talking a cab back home. That is one of the many advantages of living where we do. If we were still in North America to live in such a rural location it would cost a fortune to get a taxi back to where you live. You probably would have to book it in advance and explain to the driver how to get there and back. Here it is just a question of jumping in and telling the driver where you want to go.

The pond just down the road

It looks like the Stour, but it is a lake.
.





The pond is on the walk into town. Below is a view of the scenery that you walk through on the way.


When I see multiple domain registrations

.... it is normally an indication that the person making them is up-to no good.

Why else would you register a domain in the name of someone in your organisation? Why would you register a domain in the name of a company or person who you have done business with and possibly had a dispute?

No normal person or company needs more than one website/domain unless they are trying to prevent their competition registering a similar domain and attempt to "cash-in" on their success. If an indivual registers a domain in their own name they are either carrying out business under their own name, i.e. a sole proprietor, to register a domain in your own name for any other reason is pure vanity or an expression of your over-importance. In any case if you find a domain in your own name you are not likely to post content on that website that highlights your faults. If you do find one that is posting such information then you can be pretty sure that it is a "revenge" website.

When choosing a domain name one should be creative and choose one that expresses a theme such as the passage of time.

Elder Rubber Inc.

Ray Elder is being harassed by Wayne McAlpine.

Due to bad blood between them Wayne is in  the process of post inflammatory information about Elder Rubber on his website and another that Wayne has registered in the elder-rubber name.

This seems to be part for the course with Wayne McAlpine and he also has domain registrations for Joshua Sham, who once was a loyal employee of Wayne McAlpine but has now "distanced" himself from the "toxic" McAlpine.

This is fair warning for anyone who has had the misfortune to have worked with McAlpine. Whether you have just disagreed  with him or if you have not paid for work that he thinks you have performed for him, he will try his best to get back at you.

Woodbridge Tide Mill

These are some shots of the famous mill from an angle that most do not see on their visit.


and, where is Waldo?


 My partners favourite is the one looking over the river Deben estuary.

The US is after my friend

Laurie Love

He says that he will kill himself before they can put him on a plane to America.

I guess I should be careful about what I say as I may be the next to get a visit from the National Crime Agency!

We hackers need to stick together, especially those here in Stradishall Suffolk.

I have been interested in this subject for a long time now. The mechanisms behind what is needed for the authorities to gain access to an Internet user details in particular. I previously quoted a decision made by the Supreme Court of Canada on this issue.


In this judgement the request by the police in Saskatchewan was rejected on the grounds that personal privacy concerns needed to be preserved, even though the request was made to determine whether an Internet user was downloading pornography. Presumably of an illegal nature such as that depicting sexual acts with minors.

I am of the opinion that the same situation exists here in the UK as it does in Canada in that a court order is needed for a Service Provider to reveal the identity of one of their subscribers. This was my point when I made my first post on the subject.

However, the post was interpreted as an attempt to deflect attention from myself and to create a "smoke-screen" to cover-up my activities on the Internet. This is ludicrous. While it is true I posted the reference to the Supreme Court of Canada and the Saskatchewan case because I expected that Wayne McAlpine of Saskatoon would think that it was aimed at his Internet activities, the posting has nothing to do with him.

I welcome the authorities to examine the contents of any of my computers and/or hard drives. None of them contain "disturbing images". I also didn't send any of my drives into a stupid data recovery service and if they did contain such images why would I send any of them to a person that I did not trust? Wayne McAlpine cannot provide proof of the purchase of a data recovery plan, the receipt of any such drive or the contents thereof.

A fly-past

Following on yesterday's post here is a video version of the photographs.



Cavendish, possibly one of the most photographed "chocolate-box" cottages in the country.

Aa test to see what size of videos that I can easily upload directly from the Mavic SD card. It seems that Blogger has a size limit of 100M file size. I will have to make a few more short videos of local scenes and farming activity.

Cavendish, Suffolk

It is a pity that there was scaffold on the house behind the cottages.

Morning Mist

This is a view over the brook from the bottom of the garden


The sun shining through the mist on what looks like another fine day. The cows have not awoken it would seem and all is still quiet.

Fruits from the hedgerows

Autumn certainly is "a time of plenty". Yesterday,  and over the weekend we have been picking blackberries and damsons from the side of the road and across the fields.

Also a neighbour has a glut of Victoria plums and we have a cache of those as well. Much jam and chutney making has ensued and most of this will be sold in aid of charity. The problem now is that we are fast running out of suitable glass jars and we make have to camp out at the bottle bank to see what we can get from those that are throwing them out in the recycling.

GWM - Googling While Muslim

I came across this concept while reading "Home Fire" by Kamila Shamsie.

It raises a whole lot of questions regarding data protection and surveillance techniques.

The act of looking up something, using Google or any other of the search engines, could trigger interest in you. The fact that you are also of a particular religious affiliation would also trigger that interest.

While I have no doubt that there are those that may be "on the radar" of the authorities for being associated with a particular group, as far as I know Google has no way of determining your political or religious beliefs. What you are looking for may indicate your leanings but a search in itself cannot correlate these factors.

In the air above the house


This shows the lush vegetation we are surrounded by, the church being one of our closest neighbours.

The shot was taken hovering at about 100 feet at the bottom of the garden, or the field behind. All the trees in front of the house are in the garden and the Blackthorn thicket was under the bottom right of the picture.

A direct visit to my page on Wayne McAlpine

From South Korea.

This must have been in response to my post on the fact that content has been moved from tempsfugit.ca to tempusfugit.me.uk. There was a link to this newish page on that blog post.

It could have been someone playing silly buggers and using TOR to select a random relay server, but I don't think that Wayne McAlpine is that smart.

tempusfugit.ca is now tempusfugit.me.uk

You may have noticed that requests to tempusfugit.ca are now telling you that the "requested URL is not found on the server". This is because all the content has been migrated to my UK server.
