Missing Things….

Ordinarily this week every year should be a very, very busy one indeed. I would start with Spring Fair at the NEC and follow this up with a visit to a private equity conference in London. Next would be the pub expo at Olympia where I would combine drumming up business with sampling new beers and craft gins! This would be completed with a departure for Ireland to tend to my various business interests there.

Both retirement and covid are putting paid to that for this year. In truth, I would have attended the pub expo anyway for the sheer pleasure alone of trying new gins and beers without the need to drum up business.

I am certainly not missing the long haul in the car from London to Ireland as this one is more onerous than the other trips I do after such a heavy week as in previous times I would have to weave my usual workload in too.

There is next year I suppose…..

    Warning Note To Eircom/Eir Customers Visiting courtguinness.com

    Owing to the resurgence of our Irish stalker visiting now from the Eircom/Eir networks O will shortly be shutting access to this website to certain IP address ranges from the Eircom/Eir networks.

    I regret the inconvenience this will cause to some legitimate visitors from the Eircom/Eir networks who should be able to rightfully enjoy their normal visits and enjoy the content on this website.

    I have previously given an open fair warning on this website during the month of December 2020 that this action would be taken should the stalker not cease and desist.

    Stalker Update 13/12/2020

    Well it looks like my Irish internet stalker has returned.

    There has been some visits recently that exactly track the pattern of their often previous visits.

    This time they are connecting from the Eircom network.

    Whilst I do not wish to put further blocks on Irish traffic I may have to start blocking some Eircom IP ranges. I will apologise now for any inconvenience this may cause to bone-fide visitors from Ireland to this website.

    Maybe more than 8 months of absence was too much to ask for.
