|In July 2011 we stayed in the recently opened Swiss hotel Ibis
Bulle – La Gruyère.
Accidently, I left the charger and the battery of my photo camera in the
room, and noticed it after passing the Great St Bernard Tunnel. By email, I
asked the hotel management to look for these items and send them to me. And
before I was home from vacation a parcel with the charger and battery
already arrived. Many thanks to the nice management of this excellent hotel!|
|2009 July: The Maxtor Basics USB external harddisk (500GB) sucks since
after booting my laptop the drive is never recognized. Reconnecting USB does
not solve this problem; the drive's power must be switched off and on again,
decreasing its lifetime. Media Markt sells these drives although the defect
seems to be known for more than a year.|
|2007 June: My daughter's pc (Windows 2000) was infected by the virtumundo
trojan virus. The Symantec virus scanner did not prevent the infection!
After running VirtumundoBegone and FixVundo the virus was still present. The
reason is that it had replaced in MSN Messenger's directory the file
msnmgr.exe with its own wicked file. After deleting this file and re-install
MSN Messenger, the problem was solved!|
Furthermore, I tried to inform Symantec by email, but gave up after a lot of
waisted time browsing on their site.
|2007 March: I bought a Shower Tap Radio as a birthday present
for my daughter at www.crazyaboutgadgets.com.
She has used this radio a few times inside the shower. However, the radio
now fails to operate due to drops of water, that penetrated the electronics
part of the equipment probably via the speaker. crazyaboutgadgets
claims on its site that this radio is waterproof, but it is certainly not. A
few email complaints were left unanswered. So, crazyaboutgadgets
is considered as a doubtful organisation that continues selling this swindle
|At 2005 May 10, our dear hamster mum escaped from .... life after giving birth to 4 kids
generated by her own son:
I use WorkPace for
watching my computer activities. The guys in New Zealand really helped me with
installing my old 2.4 version on my new floppy-less laptop.
