Update 06/03/2021

So what’s been happening since the last update?

Well, I have been sleeping a lot more and that’s down to this.

I have had to expend a lot of time on Guy’s and St Thomas NHS Trust and their various mistakes in the past few weeks. I note that the NHS staff are complaining about a 1% pay rise. This lot need a pay cut until they can sort themselves out. I have evidence of a number of mistakes and issues and have evidence of them breaching GDPR, an incorrect Subject Access Request notice with lots of missing information and lots of incorrect information. I may post my latest response to their CEO for you all to enjoy.

As usual, this website has had tweaks to make it brighter and easier to navigate.

I am enjoying learning python but some of my efforts are still a little too buggy to display to the world and will not be ported to courtguinness.com for the time being.

Retirement is going well and I am not missing the business as much as I thought I would. Learning python is using up some time and keeping me active from my sofa. My attempts at getting the Telegraph crossword down to 7 minutes are going woefully badly!

The club is growing slowly but nicely and could do with new members but I am pleased with growth. I am also going to expand and uplift the “Brucie bonus” section to allow members to earn money and do business from various initiatives. This should be in place in the next week or so.

I am still looking for a bolthole and complete relocation has not been ruled out. Neither has international relocation or a bolthole abroad. Spain and France are under consideration for relocation and Northern France for a bolthole. I narrowly missed out on a lovely classic Grand Banks 32 motor yacht recently which would have made a fantastic floating bolthole.  I remember these boats well from way back when working in the marine trade. I would love to find another good one in budget in timescale!

I have also decided to try and find a good classic Mini Cooper for use as a regular driver and classic/restomod project. I have some fantastic plans that involve a heated windscreen, some engine mods, electric windows and Satnav! See here for info.

I am enjoying blogging regularly and enjoying the uplift in traffic that this brings. I have blogged most recently about the right kit for excessive travel. An alleged mid-life crisis. Yes I am still on the lookout for a good crocodile skin Filofax cover! I have also blogged about lingerie and mobile phones. I will be blogging more about previous projects soon so keep an eye on the front page.

On a technical note, I got my wallet out last week and some shiny Lenovo kit has arrived to replace some Windows tablets which have all died with the same fault. A USB charging point attached to the main screen. The onboard USB works its way free from the motherboard far to easily on these devices and is then rendered useless unless I want an uneconomic repair. Some more Raspberry Pi devices will be arriving shortly and I am considering a Raspberry Pi cluster. The two shelves behind my sofa or behind my head the way I lounge it are starting to look like a nano version of the machine rooms  I used to spend lots of time in when I was in the IT trade with 2 web servers, a monitor, a printer, 2 NAS devices and 2 raspberry pi’s along with charging docks sat there.

The Linkgate saga continues but at least it has got rid of my stalkers! I am enjoying expanding my networks on other social media channels and Linkgate has driven more traffic here.

All in all, things are going quite well. In a final note, I am in need of contacts with daily newspapers or prime tv programs or channels. If anyone can help then please do get in touch.

Next update in 2 to 3 weeks 🙂

Best regards
