And after that…

… half an hour or so of utterly pathetic crap, gearing up the computer fan, making the thing beep like hell and what not. It stopped abruptly after I shot off an e-mail – from my phone – about how utterly pathetic this was.

As BOTH my computers froze, I know it was no coincidence. Besides, I have had twelve years of this…

Who’s doing this? As far as I could tell, but it is hard to tell, this time it was whoever was in the flat below me at the time. That does not have to be the legal resident. The locks to that flat get picked too, after all.

Next thing that happened

My printer starts spewing blank pages. Lots of them. When I tried to print one of the fundraising campaigns.

Also, when I invited people to the fundraiser, the computer hiccuped when I typed “Steve” as someone’s first name. No not Pitt. No not someone based outside of Portsmouth. A coincidence?

Why do all my phones only accept SIM cards that I have had for a long time?

Have set up another fundraiser

Am sick of being told to apply for benefits, too. Without all this crap going on, there is no reason why I should not simply be able to support myself again, like I used to do! Without all this crap that’s been going on, there is absolutely no reason why I should need to depend on benefits, dammit.

And what happened within this context? Another button in my browser window was pressed, not by me, but that I can ascribe to an odd coincidence. But also two e-mails were doubled. And I am on the 64-bit computer right now. The e-mail message that mysteriously went out twice over the weekend, that happened on my 32-bit computer.

What happened yesterday evening

I received a text message that looked like it was delayed by weeks (namely that the call credit on that phone is zero), on the phone on which my bank no longer sends me 2FA codes.

OK, maybe that message was supposed to serve as a reminder, some kind of commercial trick to top up. Except, I also remember that its balance had suddenly dropped to zero from 7 or so, on that phone. Weeks ago.

Did I mention that my “verified by VISA” procedures haven’t worked in years either? That screen zips by on my PC screen. Haven’t had to enter any of those details for years.

Did I mention that I know that I used to be on someone else’s network? When I still used Windows and still did regular LLFs and reinstalls, I knew how to remove myself from having been put on someone else’s network illegally. In those days, I still had proper broadband.

There have been days since on which several sites suddenly looked so differently, all at once.
