Maybe its the stingy data allowances etc our Telcos offer that restrict folk in what they do with their phones.

People with phones capable of taking photos with a gazillion megapixels that post stamp-sized pictures when sharing photos with others - so small you can't barely recognise people's faces.

Maybe its the forum they are uploading to cant take larger files <ducks and hides>

You assume too much. It is not to a forum. The platform allows huge files. People are uploading on an office network.

 

Assumptions are bad. As an IT manager you should've known it.

I get that when providing remote support and ask for photos of equipment. Some of the problem is the limit on email size and the prompt for image size when sending.

I was taking the mickey but OK.

 

Not all organisations have unrestricted data allowances. The last organisation ( a very large nationwide org) had restrictions on the size and type of files that could be transferred by one and all even though it had large resources. This was for security and to stop folks from sending around a fist full of weekend snaps, videos and other non work related files.

Yates insect spray bottle:

β€œIt is an offence to use this product on animals.”

Hmm, so do I need to brush off all the bugs from the plants before applying it?

I had something small that really annoyed me and thought it was perfect for here...

 

 

 

Turns out what is more annoying is forgetting what it was before getting to post it 🀬





I'm not a complete idiot, I still have some parts missing.

Ordered something from England, with tracked delivery. Royal Mail's site says that it arrived in NZ on the weekend and to use NZ Post's tracking for further info. NZ Post's site says that the parcel isn't tracked. As it's now Wednesday and it still hasn't turned up, I'm starting to get a little worried...

It can take them (NZPost) 10 days to get an item from Auckland arrival to me in Christchurch!

NZ Post's are liars.

 

Their Websites states "We aim to deliver standard parcels within our delivery target of three working days, no matter where the parcel is sent from."

 

When I complained about a package being "in transit to local depot" for a week, this is the BS I got back...

 

"The 3 day target you're referring to is for our domestic services. Items that have been sent with NZPost within NZ. Items that have been sent from Overseas have been sent on the Overseas Postal Agent's service standard to NZ e.g UPS, RoyalMail. Once these items have been cleared from the International Mail Centre, we provide a targeted timeframe of up to 5 working days for delivery. If you're disputing this, you would need to take up with the Sender as we are only the Delivery Agent. This parcel has not been on a NZPost service, rather, a service provide by the Overseas Postal Authority."

Sigh. Well then, hopefully by the end of the week. I've been spoiled by overnight couriers!

 

Edit: Arrived on Thursday afternoon.

DHL International GmbH is an international courier, parcel, and express mail service which is a division of the German logistics company Deutsche Post DHL.

Spammer send me phishing emails weekly, but unlike most other couriers, they seem to actively dissuade reporting. If you follow their "contact us" links, it leads to a dead end. After a very extensive search, I found "spam@dhl.com" in their Belgium site if anyone wants to report emails.

From DHL

Fraudulent Use of the DHL Brand

Attempts have been made to defraud Internet shoppers by the unauthorized use of the DHL name and brand via email communications and graphics which appear, on the surface, to have originated from DHL.

In most cases the communications concern the sale of consumer goods over the Internet where payment may be requested before the goods are delivered.

Please be advised that DHL does not request payment in this manner. DHL only collects money due for official DHL related shipping expenses.

This security notice does not affect the obligation of a consignee to pay shipping, customs, VAT or similar charges, where these are properly payable at the time of delivery.

DHL accepts no responsibility for any costs, charges or payments made which were improperly incurred as a result of fraudulent activity.
