People with similar names to mine keep signing up for shopping sites with my google email address. I keep getting emails meant for a Stefan Pieper in Germany and a Stacy Pieper in the USA amongst others. The "Unsubscribe" button is usually honoured but I got one message that said I’d need to log in to unsubscribe and so that company has got itself labelled spam.
I found my original World Of Warcraft installation discs complete with thick user manual. When was the last time someone actually read a WoW user manual?
This is yet another test of web mentions.

For the enjoyment of a faintly literary melancholy there is no place like a train. One sits back, effortlessly casting away the tired landscape of an undesired world. Every sight is succulent food for bitterness: those suburbs like trenches with the wireless entanglements above them, the pillar boxes, the concrete, the sap heads of red London angling into the green country, the jab of a builder’s advertisement, some creamy-domed cinema, eight municipal trees. Beauty one wipes out of the mind before it can soak there and stain all, as one wipes tears from the eyes; but the ugly things, what a vicious pleasure they give, for they enhance the exquisite bitterness of one’s loneliness.
