The Musings of a Modern Day Mistress

Welcome to my blog. It replaces my old news page and makes it much easier for me to update.

Can anybody tell me....

the algorithm used by Sky and a few other internet service providers that deems my website to be pornography?

I checked the definition of pornography in the Oxford English Dictionary, which defines it thus:
pornography
pɔːˈnɒɡrəfi/
noun
noun: pornography
  1. printed or visual material containing the explicit description or display of sexual organs or activity, intended to stimulate sexual excitement.

My website contains no pictures of sexual organs or sexual activity, nor does it have explicit descriptions of  these.

I did a bit of further research and found the etymology of the word to be from Greek:
Origin
mid 19th century: from Greek pornographos ‘writing about prostitutes’, from pornē ‘prostitute’ + graphein‘write’.

Hmm. I wonder is the program code may have been searching for the word 'prostitute' or 'prostitution'.  'Prostitution' does appear in my site - in the sentence that clearly states 'Domination is not prostitution'. 

Yet again a case of 'the computer says so, so it must be right' shame the computer system is designed and programmed by idiots who have no concept of context.......

Any fool.....

Any fool can make something complicated. It takes a genius to make it simple.

Sadly there are not many geniuses developing apps for charging electric cars!
Having arrived in Crawley last night and expecting the Tesla Supercharger to available I find it had mysteriously vanished!!!!

So after visiting the Polar charger at the Crowne Plaza Hotel - charger say no you need a card for this latest model - I only had the app on my phone, I arrive at the town hall 'Charge My Car' charging station. Yippee! It says 'Download the app', which I dutifully do, sign up entering all the details with my frozen fingers because just in case I'm trying to preserve the battery life of my car., and then? Err how do I add my credit card details? Finally find where to do this and I'm ready to charge my car.... Only where on the app does it let me select 'Start charging'?

NO IDEA! so I start flicking through all the possible potential options - until finally the 'Start charging' page appears. So I do - but as I have no idea how I actually got there in the first place I daren't navigate away from the page because it also has the 'Stop Charging' button.

Charging an electric car with 40 kwh current is not a spectator sport, so I go to have something to eat, and return when the app bleeps to say I have overstayed by 20 minutes!!! Why didn't the thing bleep just before??? Wouldn't that be more sensible?Luckily no-one else was wanting to charge their car at 10 o'clock on a Sunday night.

But I still don't have enough charge to get home.... But I do have enough to get the Heathrow Terminal 5 Tesla Super Charger. So off I go. The Heathrow Terminal 5 Tesla Super Charger isn't actually at Terminal 5, so that was somewhat confusing ,as I drove down some dodgy-looking road to finally find myself at the Hilton Hotel Heathrow Terminal 5.

There are eight lovely super chargers all of which are free bar one, so I plug in with a sigh of relief . Super chargers have 120 kwh max current - but still exactly entertaining, so I go in search of a hot drink, ending up in the bar and meeting Alex and his son who are complete strangers but somehow due a mix up by the bar man, Alex ends up paying for my hot chocolate too.

Alex, I know it's hardly likely you will read this but if you do - it was a pleasure to met you, I hope you and your son got home safe - as I did eventually!

Why have I not blogged for so long???

Because Blogger in their infinite wisdom have made their app obsolete and not informed me and now I have to post using their website which is not optimised for mobile!
Morons! Are you trying to go backwards instead of forwards or is it some silly professional issue you have with Apple? Have you stopped for s moment and considered your customers? Clearly not. End of rant...

Tweeting

When will Donald Trump learn that, in the words of David Cameron, that too many tweets make you look like a twat?

Social Shunning

I have just been removed from a Facebook group I didn't know I belonged to! Not sure how I feel about this....

I want to be micro chipped!

Why is it so difficult to prove who you are? We don't need identity cards we need micro chips! We could have all our medical details held in it too so if we collapse and are taken to hospital they will know everything about you - medical history, next of kin, organ donor confirmation etc. Forget contactless payment, car keys, house keys, driving licence, credit card details, passports, rail cards, any cards in fact, it's all data that can be securely stored on a microchip. If my cat can be chipped why can't I? It's not as if I have anything to hide....!
