Weekly Round-up 2018.40
See.Sense Customer ServiceAn account of some great customer service I received from See.Sense last year, when one of their ICON+ lights developed a fault. A speedy apology and prompt action to resolve the issue made this interaction almost a delight.
Charity Everesting FundraisingThe breakdown of the fundraising effort, so you can see what happend to all the money we raised.
On Friday June 22nd, I attempted an Everesting – to cycle up and down the same hill until the elevation gain matches the heigh of Mount Everest, 8848m.
Read on and find out more about the training involved, the day itself, and the causes who will benefit from the fundraising.
A word of warning, it’s a bit of a long read.
Paying For Services
Paying for public services is a hot potato topic in Ireland, given the Irish Water debacle. My main issue with the Irish Water saga was with the awarding of the metering contract to GMC/Sierra when Siemens offered to install meters for free back in 2010. Another classic example of an Irish Government wasting money – see electronic voting machines, and giving away our natural gas resources for other examples.
I don’t know enough about these topics though, I should educate myself more on them, but limited time and other priorities scupper that. I do have a little proposal that may make some sense.
