What a weekend !

No, it’s not what you think, Dawn went out of town for work again. It was a Friday I was looking forward to staying up late and playing some games, made it to 10PM (half hour later then norm ). Woke up not feeling so well on Saturday morning but that’s normal, I didn’t eat a lot the night before. Bad TV dinner I should stop eating those things. Had some OJ and got in the car and was heading for fast food to get something in me.

Not long after that I started to get real dizzy and was having a hard time seeing where I was going. Thought it would be better to pull over and I am not sure if I was talking to Dawn or texted after I stopped. Shortly after that I was in an ambulance on my way to a hospital. Told you it wasn’t a good story.

Seems I am diabetic now and have some cleanup work that might need to be done of the veins, I’m considering it a tune up of sorts. More to come as I get board between tests.

Ebay is the cesspool of the internet

Its been this way for so long I can’t remember when it was a tool that could be used on the internet. I placed a item for sale on Ebay when I should have know better and it was not a hour later I get a response. A person that is “willing” to send more money for what I am selling to get me to go outside the ebay system for payment. This account has never bought anything on ebay and has no reviews . The account has been online since 2005 , why has ebay not CANCELED this account. Ebay police your user base better instead of just increasing user fees !!!

Mac book pro

I got the Mac book pro after selling a domain I had for 10 years, it was a experiment, I never knew anything about Apple computers. At one time a friend would send support questions my way just to see me sweat as I tried to help them. It has been a wonderful computer for a very long time and It has visited a lot of country’s with me, I remember downloading a James Bond movie in Florence Italy the first time we went. and the time in Rome where we had to share the internet connection. And in Greece it was a paper weight due to the bad internet connections.

I have placed it for sale and just booted it up for some photos after not using it for 2 weeks, I miss it already…

Why I got a computer

A friend reminded me over the weekend as to what I got a computer for ( Flight Sim’s ) by asking questions about a game I have not played in months. With all the options of what to play out these days it’s hard to remember what you love , game of the month syndrome.

I built this computer to play this game ( Microsoft Flight Sim ) at the max and I bet it’s spent 10% of its time doing that. Now I have the “need for speed” ( Top Gun reference ) and I should shit or get off the pot.The newest game is DCS a combat sim that I have over the years sent a lot of money on with “add ons” . This is a reminder to myself to play the game.

Wish me luck on DCS it’s a lot harder to master…

Email to United CEO

Sent last week

I’m writing because last week me and my wife were supposed to be taking a once in a lifetime trip to Egypt. Due to a delay in our flight from Reno to SFO on United 5332 (Rec Locator JV3531) we reached the Emirates counter 8 minutes late. Before taking off from Reno the crew that was working the gate were no help at all. With no information, as to why the plane left LAX late and not even knowing for sure what gate we would be boarding at.

 

After the plane did arrive seems they were in no hurry to get the people on the plane and get it on its way, now more then 2 ½ hours behind. I heard more than one other passenger speaking about how they were going to miss the next flight they were due to be on. Now once on the plane they couldn’t find someone to move the walkway away from the plane, THESE delays that could have been avoided is what cost me a $3000 dollar vacation.

 

We were now stuck in SFO so we went to the United counter with my wife in tears crying ( with what has happened to United in the last few weeks I was tempted to take my phone out and start filming but didn’t ) and asked if they could possibly change our return ticket so we could home. We were told because it would be a voluntary change (nothing about this was voluntary I assure you) that again I would need to pay penalties and difference in fares to go home.

I understand that Emirates denying us boarding was not something United can control.

I’m currently out the money for the United flight for the return trip to Reno ($231.00), the money I had prepaid for hotels and tours in Dubai and Cairo ($1298.00) and the cost of the rental car I had to pick up to get from SFO back to my home in RNO ($173.00).

so I’m hoping that somewhere within your heart you can possibly consider refunding or partially refunding our nonrefundable tickets so someday once again after I have saved I can attempt to finally visit Egypt and see all the amazing things.

 

Please let me know and thank you.
