Websites wanting me to watch a video, but making me watch 15 seconds of ads, so I don't watch the video.

Lately I have sold a couple of things on Trade Me, the buyers haven't responded to my E-Mails.



Ah Trade Me buyers.

Getting "will you post this" questions on a pickup-only Trade Me listing, and having poor feedback left for me when they haven't bothered to pay.

Pubs that run out of low alcohol tap beer because it is "really popular nowadays". HELLO ????

Oh ..... and pubs that do not stock low alcohol beer because "we do not have a demand for it". HELLO ????

People asking for help in a rather vague manner in this forum, without bothering to read any previous threads or doing a google search.

I'm a geek, a gamer, a dad and an IT Professional. I have a full rack home lab, size 15 feet, an epic beard and Asperger's. I'm a bit of a Cypherpunk, who believes information wants to be free and the Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

MikeB4: The recent trend manufactures of toilet paper have started, gluing the start of the roll.... why for goodness sake, why? 


So they don't unravel in transit?

Emails that start "Hi Team,"  when the "Team" is just me.




Doing your best is much more important than being the best.

But have you ever had both at the same pub, as I did in a rural town pre-New Year? "Sorry, we've run out of lite beer on tap - it's been really popular this summer. No, we don't have any in bottles - not much call for it."

Every single time I post a listing on TM, once reserve has been met..

"Hey whats your buy now?"
