Big Bertha Thing ISP
23rd June 2000
Ision Internet Plc.,
Further to your letter of the 21st June 2000, regarding payment
of 56.36 pounds sterling, for 77 days ISP charges.
My last payment of 14.09, as detailed in your letter,
covered the three dates as follows;-
1st March 2000
2nd March 2000
13th March 2000
These were the only days of the previous 107 days,
when my site was not disabled, in more ways than one
and my mailbox locked up from me. Apparently the only person,
who can enable site access and password reset,
is your accounts manager. He can only be contacted
via national telephone lines, complete with revolving door
and canned musak.
You want a further payment of 56.36, to bring the charges
up to 23.48 per day. (At a rate of 8570.20 pounds sterling per annum.)
Please find enclosed herewith my cheque for 56.36
and a copy of my previous letter to you,
dated 12th June 2000. (recorded delivery)
In view of the extraordinary nature of these charges,
I would ask you to confirm just three things;-
1.That you have received payment by issueing a reciept. (Received)
2.That you will close my account as from todays date. (Closed 3rd July)
3.That there will be no further charges made against this account.
In mitigation of the conduct of your staff, it would appear
that they had some difficulty with my Usenet newsgroup postings,
as detailed on my new site.
I trust that this will be in order and will be looking forward
to the favour of your reply.

Big Bertha Thing indomitable
(1938) about biography of Lord Grey of Falloden
Lord Grey of Falloden sprang from a Northumberland family of country
who for generations had played a part in public affairs.
His own pleasures lay in the country, but his sense of duty drove him into
He was happiest fishing for trout, and watching wild birds,
but once he was a member of parliament his abilities and character
won for him a prominence that gave him little time for such pursuits.
From 1905 to 1916 Lord Grey was Foreign Secretary.
It is strange that the man whose heart was never entirely in politics
should have risen to such a high office, should have held it so long,
and in such crucial years.
It is possible to consider Lord Grey's life as a failure.
His sense of duty prevented him from living the life he loved.
His efforts to preserve the peace of Europe suffered the defeat of August
that darkened the rest of his life.
He sacrificed his eyesight in his wartime service in the government.
When at last release came, and he returned to his birds and books,
he could no longer see them. Domestic griefs beset him.
Yet as our extract from his biography shows,
from this tragic material his serene and strong nature
won a greatness that is an inspiration and splendid example.(Two extracts
He was equally cut off from books, of which as life advanced he had grown
scarcely less fond.
I classify the different parts of my body as being
of different ages, as thus:
99 Sense of smell
56 Sense of Hearing (My age)
45 Heart and lungs
It makes an unequal team to get along with.
