Windows Fan With No Reason...

Image
Seem to have run into someone that thinks windows can not be at fault for it's obvious bugs. LOL. Yes... It drops internet connection and the modem tests fine. Still it has to be my ISP not windows. Mean while 2 other devices on the network have never had a problem with connectivity. I even know how the bug is happening. Winsock is being corrupted. You reset and it's fine. That can NOT be the ISP. Resetting your PC does not fix a faulty modem of cable connection. Not even possible. Still some people just like to argue. We call them stupid people. See you literally can not reason with someone who does not have the intellect to reason in the first place.

Service Fee Hay?

Image
1. This was a charge that was not supposed to be coming. Smith Micro made a "Mistake" and charged me for something that was candled after I paid for the full version.
2. The FreeStyle checking account is NOT supposed to have service fees. So I am so happy to see that Conexus Credit Union has charged me $5 to have money taken out of my account when in fact I did NOT authorize it to happen.
As of yet no sign of the $45 NSF fee they threatened to charge me over this matter. Will be trying to get my $5 back as well I think. Also wondering how the hell long PayPal takes to issue the refund. Money was taken out the same moment that the "Mistake" was made. Day number two of the word "Pending" on the refund. They say it can take up to ten days to get it refunded. Well it seems you get things done right the hell now when you want the money from me, but when it's time to pay me - ten days...
Ah the wonders of finance. The mystery to us that is banking and onli…

Had Trouble with Smith Micro and my Bank

Image
Charged twice for the same software from Smith Micro. A google search turned up several others with the same plight, as well as a couple who literally did not know where the charge was coming from.


Now the thing here is they have a shady practice of charging you for the full program after 30 days of using the trial unless you cancel it. If I remember this is not even legal in Canada, I don't know about the USA. But on the 29th I put in a cancel request and paid for the full version threw paypal. Smith Micro then seems to have lost of ignored the cancel email and charged me for the same program twice. The difference in name is because one is the so called trial and the other is the full version I paid for. The difference in price is due to the change in the Canadian dollar compared to the US price of the product.
Now I phone the bank and tell them I want to stop the payment, as I only have $4 in the account right now. The rest of my money is in investments and I literally can'…

Windows 10 buggy

Image
OK down at the bottom are the first 2 updates. This was literally the same day they released Windows 10. So there where 2 patches for it the sane day LOL. Then on the 5th there was another patch. Being that it does NOT always have internet connectivity, and I am by far not alone with this bug, it may need some more fixin'... This is the 8th and I just had to reset to get it to work on the internet. Not only that something seems to be taking control when I am working just for a second. The task bar keeps getting a icon then it's gone - all in less than a second. What the living hell Microsoft? What is going on here?

Went to the Lancaster Taphouse with Dale

Image
I started with a pint of Bohemian  Lager. I got the Smoked Cheddar Bacon Burger with fries. I finished with a Black Bridge IPA beer. The lager was sharp and tasty as all get out. The burger was out of this world good. The fries where OK. The IPA was in the top 10 beers I have ever drank so it was a treat to say the least. Total price (including liquor tax) was $33.20
I give my meal an 8 out of 10 and well worth the price. 
The bottom photo is my friend Dale pigging out on 3 - yes 3 - deserts. The cheese cake is well cheese cake. The Chocolate Torte I had a small taste of and it was rather good. The big deal was the last one, the Ale Beignets. This thing was so darn good that you can hardly imagine it. The taste was out of this world.
