Welsh 25 mile TT champs...

we're my finest hour.  It was windy woo and I was on the road bike (as SRM cranks lost in post somewhere)... I squeezed out a 58, my reward for some proper old-skool 'no heart rate, no power monitor, no speedo' central governor pushing pain.

P squeezed out a new PB, a shortish 56. Happy days.

Charlie squeezed a big cake into his face.

Of all the firsts...

... ,and there have been a few, this was the best (even better than the first word!).  There are times as a Dad when you are desperate to remember every moment of the experience, as you know you'll want to play it back when he or she is grown up and gone.  This was one of those times, loving the moment but trying to absorb every second forever.  What a day!

Arrgh! Samsung customer service is bad, they hate customers and that includes me!le!

This is out of character but I can't take it any more.  I am stuck in a spiral of doom with Samsung customer services and have no power to solve the problem.

My phone keeps going wrong and is unusable (keeps shutting down while being used) and I've returned it three times.  The third time they said they couldn't reproduce the fault... and I had to prove it was faulty by paying an independent engineer!  After arguing for some time they agreed to replace it, but that was three weeks ago and I've heard nothing.  Their phone number has a 3 minute long recorded message then puts you on hold for 10 minutes before cutting you off!

Help! This has been going on for over 8 weeks.

I've had to buy another phone while they 'solve my problem' (i.e. forget about me) so am out of pocket and pissed off.

If you know anyone at Samsung please ask them to send me my phone back (preferably working).  In the meantime don't, whatever you do, buy a Samsung Omnia 7 phone.  They are dog and Samsung hate customers (or at least it seems that way).

If anyone from Samsung fancies calling me my customer number is 2114631711, I'd love to speak to you (and have been trying for some time).
