This Morning's Spew

4 days without checking the Net. My main email account downloaded 159 spam items straight to the bin, leaving some YahooGroups and private messages to read and follow up.

iTunes to refresh after listening to some podcasts on the journey.

No messages from eBay or the offending seller. Bidding ended, and my photo was still there, advertising the person's tent. Used without my permission, non-attributed, and used to make the person money. So, I posted on the eBay community (where I expect a reply of "tough luck"), and contacted the buyer (where it'll probably end up in their spam box):

In the sale that just ended, the seller used a photo of my Akto without my permission. I'd contacted both him and eBay about it, but nadda. I hope it all goes well for you, as the Akto's a great tent (google me at AktoMan), but I thought I'd set the record straight.

Washed out kit last night, and I've rest still to unpack and air. I've started to reply to some of the new comments and emails.

But, importantly, catching up with Friday's "The Now Show".

I've a pile of notes to work through, and the blog posts from the weekend to go back and update with photos. As well as Dawn's tarp-tent to play around with.
