Be aware you may not have been hacked at this point, but a similar email address with your name attached is being used and sent to your contacts. I saw quite a bit of this a few years ago. However it may be a hack – you need to look carefully at the headers of the message your friend has received. Regardless as a precaution change your password…[Read more]
Thanks for the correction. On the upside leaflet drops are much less effective and they don’t have to know anything about a person, it is a whole street thing rather than targeted. If they rely that much on targeting their user base, then wouldn’t these people appreciate the advertising and as such opt-in for future adverts?
It is great that it…[Read more]
You might get less spam due to WHOIS information but bear in mind that unless you are wise enough to publish your business address on your website a lot of us are unlikely to get involved in buying anything off you.

I absolutely hate Xero, it looks easy to use but I find it almost impossible in lots of ways. It has some good features but it drives me insane much more than I praise it. Quickbooks Online is my choice of software, it’s doesn’t look as sexy as Xero, but it’s much more stable in my (very experienced) opinion. Xero spend something like 6 times as…[Read more]
Owing to recent family events and my fathers wishes, we have a vintage Rolex for sale. So far we have had 3 dealers contact us expressing their interest and to be fair, their offers are similar.
However, my issue is the prices I have seen some of these watches up for on the open market both privately and through specialists v’s the…[Read more]
Firstly go to a doctor to check its osteoarthritis as other types need to be treated to prevent more damage to joints.
