I had to vent to this guy.  And it feels good.

Hi [snip],

No.

Look.. I'll be honest with you.  I´m an entrepreneur and programmer.  For years I've been setting up web businesses and have always been frustrated by "domainers" who I see as nothing but carpetbaggers, adding no value whatsoever to my ventures.    Whilst I have bought domains with traffic, I very rarely buy a "this domain is for sale"-domain.

I cannot tell you how over-the-moon I am about the new TLDs and never again shall I been beholden to someone trying to squeeze a sizable sum out of me for nothing.

Fairey is my wife's maiden name that she still uses professionally.  So I'd buy it as a gift for her, but nothing else.   That puts a sizeable cap on the amount of cash I'd be prepared to spend.

I recall from our previous engagements that the "owners" of this domain are looking for an astronomical sum for doing nothing - our price expectations are so out of alignment and together with the opening of the new TLD space I feel that we will never be on the same page, or even book.

I will please request you cease communications with me.

Best of luck with your business model.

Thanks for your time,

Karl

How do you fix a roll of aluminium foil once it's started spiralling?

I had this problem.

Seen a post on Reddit.  Old one.

"This thread is archived

That is a shame.  As I now have a better answer than any of the posts.

Get a pair of tweezers and scrape down from the part of the foil roll that is "stuck".  

Don't matter if it digs down into the layer beneath.  Try to maintain even digging across the roll.

Worked a treat!

I've had a idea for Boris.

This is what he should do.

He should go to Brussels and demand:

1) End of EU commissioner/president appointments.  These should be directly elected by the Members States populations.. think "US President"-style elections.
2) Move the European Court of Justice or the European Central Bank to somewhere in the UK (not London)
3) End the monthly move of the European Parliament to Strasbourg.
4) Probably a few other things he can come up with...

THEN

Come back to the UK and offer this new deal (and Remain) or full out (with all the implications like loss of NI and subsequently Scotland) to the people in a new referendum.

Spanish verbs

Damn Spanish verbs can be frustrating.  I been trying for 13 years, and still get confused.  Must be the old brain.

I found a great "Cheat Sheet" (for fun try getting a Spanish person to say that :)) on Dummies.com but it a bit long so I cut it down a bit to just the most useful verb endings.

The cheat sheet is only good for regular verbs, and the most important/often used ones are irregular.

So last intercambio I worked with my friend to translate some typical sentences.

Here we are:


My mother was here until today,

Mi madre ha estado aqui hasta hoy,

and she will probably be back in April.

y ella a lo mejor volvera en Abril

We all had a nice time.

Nos lo pasamos bien.

Tanya & Isabel went to Barcelona on Sunday for appointments Isabel had yesterday and today.

Tanya y Isabel fueron a Barcelona dominigo para hacer encargos Isabel tenia ayer y hoy.

They are coming back now and are expected to be at home when Henry and I get there.
