It was stupid to begin with, but this benefits me hugely, as I can upload *real* content over there at long-last, in the proper orientation.

The best music you gig is that which you thoroughly enjoy during rehearsals and listening back afterwards as well. I have a gig on Sunday (on a boat of all things) and relistening to the last rehearsal literally fills me with joy because the tracks are so damn good.

Avoid #GamesHaus like the plague! Disreputable SMS company

Recently, I went through my bill with a fine-toothed comb and I’m certainly glad I did. Had I not done so, I wouldn’t have realised that I was being charged for messages I did not ask for, did not subscribe to, and most definitely did not click on to initiate.
Given that the device they came to is in fact, an EE 4G modem, that would prove somewhat difficult.
To respond to messages, it is necessary to log into the device, talk to it via http, click on SMS and in other words, go out of your way to do so.
The device itself has an absolutely huge amount of buttons… Two.
Power, and WPS.
With those, it is impossible to send, receive or even view texts, so I call BS. I call it loud and I call it clearly.

What this boils down to, is that the below email is completely, utterly, totally, inarguably BS of the highest order and I’m posting it here publicly so that people are made aware of the lengths companies will go to, to make money.
Avoid GamesHaus in any shape or form wherever possible, and tell your friends and family to do so as well.
They are disreputable, they cheat and they succeed in spamming people less diligent than I am.
If you happen to have a device such as the EE Osprey or Osprey Mini and you think ‘surely nobody would be silly enough to send texts to it or expect me to respond if they did’ check and check again. Check your bills and out-of-plan charges to be very sure that this is in fact, correct.

good morning from bed.

out with the old, in with the new boo!

Alice Birthday to you! Yep, that’s what I sang because I’m crazy like that.

I continue to be wowed by the microphone in this thing.

Fully Charged: But not Blindly charging ahead:

Here’s my episode of Fully Charged, in which I get to ride in a Tesla Model S alongside Robert Llewellyn (@BobbyLlew and explain that although yes, electric cars *can* be dangerous for blind people, if both driver and pedestrian are careful, and so long as the car makes noise, it’s no different than a standard petrol or diesel offering.
Robert is ridiculously amusing and made me feel right at home, if it’s possible to feel at home in a car, anyway. Meeting him felt like connecting with a long-lost friend. He’s as mad as I am in the best kind of way, and I hope there will be opportunities to work together on future projects.
All I can say at this point is simply: Sit back and henjoy de Video!
