Yesterday I discovered Podcasting, yeah I know, many of you have been downloading podcasts for years but I never really got involved in podcasts until recently.
I had started listening to a lot of online radio stations such as Collins & Mason’s fantastic show on Back 2 Back FM but the show is aired at a time which is quite inconvenient to me due to the wedding bookings that we do and I end up only catching parts of the show rather than listening to the whole 2 hours.
After finally meeting Collin’s I thought I should make more of an effort to listen to the whole show so I decided to download the show from Podomatic where you can find an archive of the recent shows, I then synced the shows to my iPod, *you can sync them to whatever device you may have) and I then listened to the last 2 weeks shows while out working the cab last night, the obvious advantage is that I can now listen to the shows I want to hear when I want to hear them and I am able to pause the show when a passenger gets in the cab who wants to talk to me.
If you haven’t got into podcasts yet I would suggest you take a look, listen to the type of music and shows you want when you want rather than listening to the bland content that is churned out by commercial radio stations these days.
When Geely took over control of The London Taxi Company they stated that communications would improve but lately we have found it to be quite the opposite.
Last week I telephone LTC to order some parts, I dialled the Brewery Road telephone number and duly pressed 3 for the parts department, I then heard the ringing tone for about 30 seconds which was then interrupted by a voice message which said “the extension you are calling is not answering! Goodbye” and then the line went dead.
I tried calling back and got the same result on numerous occasions, I tried calling back the following day and got the same response
So come on LTC whats going on, do you not want to do business or sell parts?
Lately this blog has been receiving and increasing number of spam post submissions from minicab companies! Why is it that minicab companies feel the need to submit spam posts to this blog? Are they really stupid enough to think that I would actually approve their spam posts? I wouldn’t mind but the posts that are being submitted are not even in reply to anything, they are just blatant spam posts advertising the services of minicab companies.
What is it with these people? Are these minicab companies so short of work that they have too much time on their hands and use this spare time to go on the internet spamming blogs and emails?
The funny thing is that the vast majority of this spam I never even get to see as it is deleted by the various anti spam softwares that I have installed on my servers.
I have started to compile a list of these minicab companies that submit spam posts to my blogs but I have yet to decide what to do with the list! If anyone has any suggestions then please let me know?
