    How to view source code with Safari 6

    July 26th, 2012 by Philip Nicosia

    With Safari 5 to view the source code on a page was a simple task of right clicking the page and selecting view source from the popup menu. Safari 6 for some strange reason no longer has this option which is quite frustrating if you need to view the source code of the page you are on for any reason.

    So how do you do it now? The simplest solution I found was to download a Safari extension BetterSource from awarepixel. It lists it as a Safari 5 extension but I can confirm it works perfectly well with Safari 6. Just restart your browser after you have installed it. Better source can be downloaded for free at

    Thomson Holiday cancelled, want to charge £40 late booking fee for another one

    March 31st, 2012 by Philip Nicosia

    You would have to experience this to believe it and see just how insensitive Thomson Holidays are and how they care very little about their customers.

    We were due to go away last Monday to a 5 star all inclusive Riu Palace in Agadir but less then 48 hours before we were due to fly out Thomson rang to say the hotel wasn’t open and we couldn’t go. The holiday was cancelled and when we tried to book another one Thomson wanted to charge us a £40 late booking fee for the privilege.

    Bearing in mind it wasn’t our fault we were in this position and we were yet to receive a refund or an email with our cancellation details for the original holiday we contacted the store and asked if this £40 fee could be waived. They said they couldn’t so we asked them to call head office and see if they could do anything which they said they would and then call us back. No call was received so I emailed them and below is the reply I got.

    Hi Mr Nicosia

    My name is Gemma and I am the shop manager at this store, Rebekah has informed me regarding your booking and some of the issues that have been encountered.

    I can confirm that the late booking fee of £40 can not be removed from your booking, this fee is charged on all bookings made within 21 days and there is no facility to remove it as it is charged at head office, I can not call head office regarding this as all booking within 21 days incurs this charge regardless of the circumstances.

    If you would like to proceed with any holidays please do not hesitate to contact myself directly.

    Kind Regards

    Retail Manager

    In other words they care so little about you as customers that they can’t be bothered to pick up the phone and speak to head office about our situation.

    Thomson simply do not care!

    I’m sad to say that our beloved rabbits Pheonix and Georgia were killed yesterday evening by a fox.

    Pheonix and Georgia

    Abandoned in boxes in a park we rescued these rabbits from the RSPCA in 2006. They have brought great joy to our lives over the last 5 years and will be sorely missed.

    iPhone 3GS as a Vespa Cam

    June 29th, 2009 by Philip Nicosia

    I recently upgraded to an iPhone 3GS and one of the new features on it is the video camera. Playing around with it I decided to mount it to my Vespa GTS 300 to see how good the video was in comparison to the Action Cam I purchased a while ago.

    Below are the results.

    The results I don’t think are too bad. Unfortunately the windshield got in the way bit and the picture is a bit wavy in pieces but overall it’s quite good.

    You can see the Aciton Cam video to compare here.
