Justin Mason’s Nose Flute

Is there any end to that man’s talents? Between his 1337 skillz on the nose flute and his highlighting of the crap Justice Charleton parroted in his judgement on UPC v Dumb Greed Merchants, you have to wonder. Course he’s just parroting “Gambra” on thumped.com, but that’s neither here nor there!

Long story short: Yay Charleton for deciding in favour of UPC. Boo Charleton for parroting makey-uppey numbers for “piracy”. Boo Charleton for essentially suggesting that Gov.ie enact legislation to allow the labels to skip proper due process. That’s two boos to one yay, you lose Charleton.

Your Credit Report

Applying for a credit report in Ireland used to be a pretty onerous task, as you had to download and fill in a form with one of those biro things, and pay with a cheque or postal order. The ICB now allows you to request and pay for your report online, making it a lot easier to check your report on a regular basis. I recommend doing it at least once a year, to make sure there are no errors in the system.
