Something For Nothing: Paterva's CaseFile

In spite of my recent trend of doom and gloom postings, I actually have some good news, Dear Reader, that you might even be interested in.

You might recall an earlier post regarding tools for visualising or mapping human (or other) networks.

I've been using Paterva's CaseFile which had a yearly licence fee of US$200. Well, not any longer!

Now it is entirely free to use.

Check out their website here.

Another Bad Day: Lessons to be Learned

Ooh, look at the cute kitten
Well, as some of you might be aware, I got myself into a spot of bother with one of my major clients the other day. Actually, I got *them* in trouble with one of *their* major clients, an international banking organisation.

What did I do?

I told a woman to go fuck herself!

Sometimes the sounds are not always in their heads

So, I have this one new client, Dear Reader, let's call him Dinesh. Not his real name.

Dinesh is a somewhat eccentric, if not effete, Indian male living alone in a block of units for low-income earners.

Dinesh has a problem with his neighbours, apparently they are keeping him up at all hours with knocking on the walls day and night in an attempt to, well, I don't know what .  

Anyway, Dinesh is looking at getting incontrovertible proof from an independent third party (that would be me) that this is occurring, so he can take it to the relevant local body authorities who administer the units. Supposedly, they had not been very responsive to his complaints to date. 

You might remember the mixed results from my last feuding neighbours caper.

Well, trying to keep an open mind, I have made several visits to Dinesh's unit and there is more skullduggery going on than a BBC production of a Cold War espionage drama.

What do I mean by that, you ask?
