More Joys of living in a Council flat

Plumber is lazy (understandably, but still pisses me off)

  1. Tap drips
  2. Tap won’t stop running
  3. Marv calls repairs department
  4. Plumber calls Marv
  5. Plumber won’t come out because it’s half 2 in the morning
  6. Plumber gives the job to the guy on the next shift
  7. Marv has to put up with no hot water and a tap running constantly for at least 5 hours

As a side note:

  • Marv has no clean clothes because the council won’t fit the taps required to hook up a washing machine, and Marv can’t afford to have the work done himself (and he’s not wanting to take the risk of doing it himself)
  • Marv is limited to cooking food in a microwave because even though they have the qualified workers at their disposal, they refuse to do the installation work that Currys could have done if the council had the connections before I moved in


I’ve been waiting since 2:30am to get my tap fixed. It doesn’t appear it’ll be fixed till 10am. Because the plumber on call at 2:30am didn’t want to come fix my tap because it was 2:30am.


Diaries of the Possessed: notes from the demons- we knew it

One Dead, One in a cell, only a couple to go.

Yet again, a guard was found in a cell. We also managed to ‘borrow’ a staff from some dead guy- apparently his brother is in the temple of those shifty Helmites.

Adam Linden is the worst example of customer support I’ve ever come across

May 10, 2006

Yeah that’s right.

I’m not allowed into Second Life for another 12 hours, because Adam Linden took offense at my inability to express myself full with the english language, and the other psycological problems I have that affect my inter-personal skills. Like someone not accepting an apology because I’m not expressing it a way that they understand. Last time I checked, any member of a company should be kind and curteous to a customer support, and fob them off with pleasentness rather than insulting them and demonstrating a lack of self restraint.

I do not appreciate having a panic attack triggered because some stupid prick didn’t take into account that I have psychological problems that affect my inter-personal interaction. I’ve no idea if my panic attack is caused through the anger from being insulted in such a petty way, or being agorophobic and suddenly getting a massive wave of claustraphobia because my only means of dealing with my agophobia was stripped away from me. Fuck You Adam. Fuck You.

You might remember Adam Linden as the prick who has ignored my medical problems before.


Account of personal feelings and experiences with Adam Linden. No logs can be provided this time due to my getting booted. Expletives used as syntactically correct expressions of emotion.

Post Scripts and Edits:

PS: comments are open to all, and will be posted uncensored once I recieve notification of them, so you’re welcome to post your personal view of events once you read this Adam. I don’t mind admitting when I’m wrong, or letting both sides of a story be viewed uncensored.

PS: for future reference- don’t ever try to use a graphics tablet during a panic attack.
it’s near impossble to work through the shakes and degraded hand-eye co-ordination.

PS: The other Lindens I’ve dealt with, including Hamlet before he was Hamlet Au have all managed to deal with my problems by fobbing me off with pleasentness, or catching me at a receptive time. The aftermath of a griefer attack is not a receptive time.

Note to all Lindens and other SL residents: if you ever catch me at a bad time, gauge my previous responses and make one of the following choices to get rid of me:

  1. fob me off with pleasantness.
  2. make me come to my senses using the following phrase “it seems I’ve caught you at a bad time, I’ll leave you till you’ve calmed down”.
  3. Distract me into another mindset with a humorous link or a non-patronising intellectual/technical question.

This panic attack ranks higher than the reaction I had when I was locked in my flat for three hours because some vandal stole the pin between the door handles, preventing the handle from turning the bolt that holds the door shut.

Advantage to having a broken ADSL connection: is a good reason not to have purchased a premium account.

Symptoms of reaction:
  • Increased heart rate (I tend to go dizzy and get blurred vision for several seconds when I stand up sometimes).
  • Full Body shakes (level usually only experienced with extreme cold).
  • Aggrevated joint paint (lovely little joint disorder similar to a mild case of arthritis, is still bloody painful).
  • Tinnitus triggered/sense of hearing heightend (I’m sensitive to extreme ranges of sound, so if it goes overkill I’m thankfull I’ve got a new PC with quiet fans and a powerful stero that can drown out all the ambient noise of the neighbours and cars driving past on the motorway).
  • Depression triggered (getting stripped of your only ability to manage your Agorophobia tends to do that).
  • Paranoia triggered. How am I supposed to know the difference between getting booted out of SL because the sim went down and petty revenge ?


Please note that although the situation was resolved, and I bear no ill feelings towards Adam Linden, I’m still leaving the post up.

Diaries of the Possessed: note from the demons- Aniewen’s Missing Person’s Bureau

That girl is too helpful for her own good.

Seriously, she just keeps accepting request to find people who were stupid enough to go wandering off into dangerous territories- she should open a Missing Person’s Bureau so she can make some money from it.

Just what is it with these people ?

This is the second time a member of the Neverwinter Guard has gone missing.

I hope this one doesn’t turn up in a sorcerers’ cage.

Grimgnaw may be evil…..

But when going into the Beggar’s Nest, rumoured to be crawling with the undead, it’d be handy to have at my side. As well as a Dire Spider to keep an eye on him of course.

The Joys of living in a Council flat

No Washer, No Cooker.

Currys came to deliver my dual-fuel cooker and my washing machine today (I was expecting to celebrate by sharing an oven-cooked pizza with my gf tonight- finally getting a chance to use the Homer Simpson pizza cutter), and it turns out that they can’t fit the cooker (or the eletric part at least) because there’s no spur box (something that apparently goes between the wall and the switch on the wall that seems to have been removed), and they can’t fit the washing machine because there’s no taps on the pipes and no suitable waste pipe outlet thingy.

Let me let out a sarcastic w00t.

Linu can finally show her face in Everaska.

I’m not sure how he got a hold of it, but it appears that Meldanen was keeping the chalice that was searching for.

I suspect Desther.

Desther always seems to be dismissing the evidence I bring to Fenthick, and the other things I’ve seen and heard during my stay in Neverwinter makes me suspect that Desther has something to do with the cult.

Meldanen wasn’t a pervert.

It seems that in an effort to prevent her life from being lost, that the dryad had charmed Meldanen. The sorcerer was glad to be rid of her.
