I am an IT Project Manager by trade, so am
on a daily basis used to the appliance of logic, and as such don’t believe in a
series of apparently coincidental problems.
I received a phone call this morning from
my agent, who said that they had had a request (for audit purposes you
understand) to provide a copy of my professional indemnity insurances, even
though I have not been fussed to take up a project since October.
Then my internet connection went dead for 4
hours, even though my ISP confirmed that there was nothing wrong with either the account or
the line. They suggested that it could have been a minor DOS attack, but they
had no logs to hand to prove the theory. This at least is now working again.
My email inboxes for both the blog and
business are overloaded with spam today, even though spam filters are in place
And finally, I am finding that the blog itself
is being inundated with spurious track backs that force a loop, thereby
increasing the churn making access extremely slow.
Now, as I said, I don’t believe in
co-incidence, so I can only assume that this collection of events is
intentional, and leads me to believe that I must have rattled someone’s cage
with the articles that I have been writing, and that this is a pathetic attempt
to intimidate and get me to stop.
Is this kind of intimidation going to make
me stop blogging. Not a chance!!
More to come….
