I'm so glad they have my back…

An email I got today:



We believe this notification meets you in a very good present state of mind and health. We the Federal bureau of investigation (FBI) Washington, DC in conjunction with some other relevant Investigation Agencies here in the United states of America have recently been informed through our Global intelligence monitoring network that you presently have a transaction going on with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as regards to your over-due contract payment which was fully endorsed in your favour accordingly.

It might interest you to know that we have taken out time in screening through this project as stipulated on our protocol of operation and have finally confirmed that your contract payment is 100% genuine and hitch free from all facet and of which you have the lawful right to claim your fund without any further delay. Having said all this, we will further advise that you go ahead in dealing with the Central Bank office Nigeria accordingly as we will be monitoring all their activities with you as well as your correspondence at all level.

They also told us that the only problem they are facing right now is that some unscrupulous element are using this project as an avenue to scam innocent people off their hard earned money by impersonating the Executive Governor and the Central Bank office.

We were also made to understand that a lady with name Mrs. Joan C. Bailey from OHIO has already contacted them and also presented to them all the necessary documentations evidencing your claim purported to have been signed personally by you prior to the release of your contract fund valued at about US$10,000,000 (Ten million United States Dollars), but the Central Bank office did the wise thing by insisting on hearing from you personally before they go ahead on wiring your fund to the Bank informations which was forwarded to them by the above named Lady, so that was the main reason why they contacted us so as to assist them in making the investigations.

They further informed us that we should warn our dear citizens who must have been informed of the contract payment which was awarded to them from the Central Bank of Nigeria, to be very careful prior to these irregularities so that they don’t fall victim to this ugly circumstance anymore. And should incase you are already dealing with anybody or office claiming to be from the Central Bank of Nigeria, you are advised to STOP further contact with them in your best interest and then contact immediately the real office of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) only with the below informations accordingly:

NAME: Mr. Sanusi Lamido Aminu Sanusi
OFFICE ADDRESS:Central Bank of Nigeria,

NOTE: In your best interest, any message that doesn’t come from the above official email address and phone numbers should not be replied to and should be disregarded accordingly for security reasons. Meanwhile, we will advise that you contact the Central Bank office immediately with the above email address and request that they attend to your payment file as directed so as to enable you receive your contract fund accordingly.

Ensure you follow all their procedure as may be required by them as that will further help hasten up the whole procedures as regards to the transfer of your fund to you as designated.

Thank you very much for your anticipated co-operation in advance as we earnestly await your urgent response to this matter.

Sigh…the actual header told me this came from: “FBI OFFICE” <>, but I kinda like the fact the feebs use gmail πŸ™‚
Anyhoo, this has put me in a pretty good mood – especially after a chat with the boss earlier…

Basically, this whole eASE thing is stalling – Wang in Singapore seems loath to put any more time into it (he’s already been paid and has spent the cash – no surprise there really, I’d feel the same), so the boss was chatting with a guy on the south coast who seems to know his onions. Basically, if Wang provides server access to the existing database code, this guy reckons he can incorporate my design and get everything up and running in about 6 weeks for about Β£10k. I expressed to the boss that the stalling point would be if Wang didn’t want to hand over his source code.

So, next week, boss and me are having a 2 day jolly meeting with the web guy (no, not spiderman) down in Bournemouth, and Wang has said (and I quote) “If Paul says he’s ok, we can go ahead.” – that’s how well I impressed him during my hectic schedule of meetings when I was in Singapore πŸ˜€ (makes a note to call the carpenters to widen the doors so I can get my big head out). So, assuming everything goes well next week, I’ll be back out in Singapore with the web guy (no, not spiderman) to introduce him and help him get acquainted with the existing site setup…

Heh – check this out – was gonna embed it, but I’m too busy, and WordPress is funny about things like that…

Too much coffee makes snee…well, hyper

And so, been poking my nose into Ajax ASP.NET thingies and content management for web design wotsits (I’m so full of shit techno babble me…).

Boss asked me how long it would take me to redo the eASE site from scratch – I picked my nose pondered this for a while and reckoned 6-8 weeks – this was after he’d suggested I go out there so I have access to the server everything is on – I quickly countered with the fact I can download demos and open source stuff here to play with to save the cost (to my health – bloody jetlag is horrible, but I reckon I got hit so bad ‘cos I was only there for 3 days).

And so, I have many, many new toys to play with πŸ™‚ and being the good little geek that I am, I’ll be up until midnight and hopefully get to grips with them ready for a serious bit of work Thursday-Monday (all this overtime will get noticed at some point πŸ˜‰ )

Is it wrong that this kind of thing REALLY excites me?

Did I tell you the joke about the…

Wait, that’s not for a mainstream audience.

Well, Spurs eventually got a draw yesterday, meaning we take Bolton back to the Lane for a reply.

And what a dire game it was – Spurs didn’t seem to have even turned up in the first half – there was 5 minutes (after we’d conceded the goal), that we seemed to start playing…then everyone just went to sleep until the second half. Good ol’ Defoe equalised, then we hit the bar a couple of times before getting a penalty awarded to us.

Now, all Spurs fans will know – since Keane was put out on loan, we’ve not had a penalty kicker – Defoe tried for a bit (and missed at least 3?), it was Huddlestone’s turn yesterday – and every Spurs fan was thinking “It doesn’t matter if the goalkeeper gets behind this – Hudd’s power will take him and the ball through the back of the net…”. Well, we were right up until Hudd sidefooted the tamest ever penalty kick straight at the ‘keeper…

We did bombard their box (ooer) in the dying minutes, but couldn’t get a winner…

So, so busy at work today – been working on the eASE website front page – I’ve made a great image for the header, and hope that’s all I have to do – I’ll need access to the FTP server to incorporate the rest of the content (and lose the damned annoying video – or at least stop it autoplaying), guess I’ll find out tomorrow what else I’ve to do…

What else? oh yes, I’ve got to ‘farm’ some data from another website, so I’ve managed to get all the info I need to do this, just gotta write a small program tonight to grab and format the data, then email it all off in a readable format (it’s a database, so .csv will do)

So, football and geekiness – I’m back on song πŸ˜‰
