I’m still here…

For the past couple of months, well, about six months to be precise, I have found it increasingly difficult to motivate myself to do anything across the whole of my domain.

Personal health has been one of the biggest factors causing this period of inactivity, but amongst that, I am suffering from a kind of depression I find difficult to talk about, as to some it would probably sound silly.
Nevertheless, it is this amongst a few other issues that are causing me to show very little interest at the moment.

So what will happen to RBCJ Hub?
To be honest, I have not yet thought deeply into it much, purely for the same reasons as above.
However, for the meantime, the pages of RBCJHub will remain open and active until such time I am able to give a clear and decisive action.

I hope that for the moment people will at least try and understand without prejudice and continue to visit for whatever reason you choose. As I have done today, I will try at some point(s) to keep you all updated, but for now, thanks for visiting…

Bits and bobs

After a lot of crap circulating around Facebook in the way of sick, distressing and upsetting images, I have decided to stand-up for what I believe in a have boycotted Facebook for 7 days in a silent protest.

I know its not going to do anything, but it is the principles of it. I’m sick of wading through countless images that shouldn’t even be on there, yet Facebook do nothing to remove them.

My argument is this, Facebook allow 13+ year olds to register, and certainly there is content on there that shouldn’t be viewed by 13-18years, yet still continues to be allowed. Why?
In my view it is because Facebook are too bothered about “Profit” to not allow content, and deliberately hold off as long as possible before removing the offending item(s) just so they can get more profit out of people who create or upload this image(s) or page(s).

Its wrong, and therefore, this is my silent protest.
Just to give you an idea of what I’m talking about, there are page(s) being create with such names as “Wank Bank”, what does this tell you?
The post images which can only be described as mild porn, and whilst I use the term “Mild”, it should not be accessed to minors (<18 years old). I’m no prude, and yes, I’m partial to a little female nudity, but this is ridiculous.
If porn sites where to allow minors to access this content (by way of lack of security checks) they would be shutdown, yet Facebook seem to be able to get away with it until someone reports it.
But even on that score, when people do report it, Facebook have a very, VERY basic way of reporting it, and sometimes the options available may not necessarily be a true reflection as to why you are reporting it in the first place. This, again, leaves it open to Facebook saying it doesn’t infringe any policy they have resulting in the content being allowed.

I know it’s all about profit, but this is stupid the way Facebook can get around moral issues the way they do.
I’m thinking of switching altogether to Twitter, less hassle.
Rant over, because the more I type, the more I get pissed off with it all…

Grrr

Portal has totally bottomed out. Server time out issues causing problems accessing the site. Unfortunately, this also happened in the middle of an upgrade. I don’t yet know if I can resolve this issue or even verify the upgrade was successful, until the intermittent server side problems are resolved.
It’s really frustrating as I cannot do anything until morning, so I’m left with a non-function site overnight :0(
A ticket has been raised with provider, I know it’s not anyones fault, but its just so head bangingly frustrating…
Let’s see what tomorrow brings.

Issues with updates

Unfortunately, the planned updates has not gone ahead as scheduled.
An issue has arose with my primary system and needless to say is currently offline.
At present I am transferring file updates from my main system (hub) to a laptop and will upload/update as soon as I can.
I’m on annual leave commencing 21st of August for 13 days, so the bulk should be uploaded then.
Many thanks for your patience.

What a load of old shite!

Ok, so there I was, picking up some chocolate for Babs, when I passed the magazine rack in our local shop.
I saw something that made me chuckle
On the front of this one magazine was Jordan, AGAIN!
Basically, now she is saying shes been raped.

Now, of course rape is a very serious allegation, but theres something that doesn’t quite ring right, and although I haven’t read the article in full, this is what I ponder.
1st – Jordan’s popularity since splitting from Pete has dropped, is this an attempt to make people feel sorry for her, and bring people back on her side?
2nd – If the the alledged rape happened years ago, as a “teen” trauma, why hasn’t this come to light before? I mean, how many shows has Jordan been on where she has “bared” all? (as it were).

For example, she appeared on the Frank Skinner show some years ago, when she had all the issues with Dane Bowers, and as, with all the media hype got tagged  as “thick!”, she tried to prove that she wasn’t.

All in all, I really hope that this news is all fake, as I wouldn’t wish it on anyone one, and with that, this whole situation of Jordan Vs. Peter is all shite!.
Let personal lives be personal, its now starting to get a little bit pathetic!
