I am really confused why Wayne McAlpine is so upset with me

There doesn't seem to be any logic in his rantings.

Yes, I originally questioned the business plan of OneWorldSafeDisk, but it was ONLY AFTER he made his first contact with me that prompted me to do some research on who he was and what his background was.

It was at this time that I posted my findings on him, which I do with all my research, this included his business addresses (he was running this from his home address and The Innovation Place). Apparently this was not to his liking and he DEMANDED that I remove the "lies" I had posted about him. While I was a little surprised at his venom, I did remove some of the information for a very short period of time. However, it was at this time that Wayne McAlpine stepped up the effort in getting me to remove what I had posted. He then embarked on two series of intimidation to get me to remove the information.

During this time, of the initial two intimidation episodes, I continued to research Wayne McAlpine and his business connections. Again, I posted my findings. All of the things that I found I documented and I don't think that I made anything up. I found other names and associates that appeared to be connected with Wayne McAlpine's businesses.

Fast forward to November 2016 -  Wayne McAlpine was involved with another person who seemed to have adopted some of his business methods. This person had found my earlier postings and was quoting them. This then precipitated a third assault by Wayne McAlpine. more pugnacious than the first two.

The difference now is that my circumstances have changed and I no longer live in Canada. All the time intervening I have been posting on a wide range of subjects and Wayne McAlpine has continued to visit my pages that commented on his business ethics. Why has there been a "tipping point"? I have not added anything about him since 2012, only recording his visits. Apparently I am attacking not only him but a lot of other individuals that originally claimed that they didn't know him!

Referrer spam

Having seen the referral path: new-revolutionary-shell-from-lifehacÄž I was curious to know what it was all about.

This was some of what I found:

It seems that the Russians are up to their tricks again! and it is nothing to do with Lifehacker.

You want it darker?

If you are the dealer, I'm out of the game

As Leonard asked.

But it's written in the scriptures
And it's not some idle claim
You want it darker
We kill the flame

Need I say more?

The Registration of a Domain Name with the sole purpose of Intimidation

I started to look at this technique in 2011 when I saw this being done to a company that I knew.

I remain to be of the opinion that it is largely ineffective unless the company or individual is sufficiently well know for someone to make a search in the first place. In any case when you see this and especially when there are many hyphens (dashes) in the domain name I think that you should take whatever you find with a pinch of salt.

If you are interested further you can always lookup the registration entry to see when it was first registered. You will not, in most cases, be able to see who actually registered it, but, a registration that was made recently, or far more recently than the company or individual that is being discredited has been active, is likely to be bogus.

Being a pillar of your community

It is strange how this turns out. Having moved to a small rural community it is good to know that volunteering for a number of activities soon establishes you as a respected part and your sphere of friends is largely increased.

If anyone else has any similar experiences or would like to comment I would love to hear from you.

Scurrying into the shadows like a cockroach

I don't really see how this can be the case?

I am not being evasive. You can easily find me by making a search. This has not changed. I have not deleted anything - I have nothing to hide.

Advanced Google search operators

These are useful if you want to see what is posted on particular website

The advantages of having a common name

If you have someone trying to discredit you it is difficult for them to create a website to do so.

There are two approaches to this you can create a website in the name of the person you wish to discredit, or you can create a website in your own name and then post things that you have found on the Internet.

Aldi Christmas strategy

Aldi start selling their turkeys for Christmas around the 15th of December  so the strategy is to run down the freezer so that you can take advantage of the reductions  that they make to free up shelf space.

Googlle Alerts

These seem to be less and less useful as they arrive in my inbox too late.

Still it is interesting to see what Google is indexing.

Have you even heard of Edward Snowden?

These are issues that are far more importance than your petty battles. Mine as well.........

Why all the interest in Privacy and Security

Ever heard of having a hobby? and as I said "1 have time on my hands".

If you took the trouble to read the other pages on my website, the ones that are not about you, you would see that. Warning ---- some big words there!

As for the preparation in advance in case someone reveals all the nasty things that I have been up to - good luck with that one.

Unless you want to make-up some more things that I have done?

I need to check that I have gas for the chainsaw

I will have to cut some more wood as someone asking for a fire to be laid.

Pheasant Shoot

The question is whether those involved in the current pheasant shoot have the right of access to our back garden?

This weekend I challenged one of the retrievers of dead and wounded birds whether he thought he was allowed to be where he was. He told me that  he didn't know and I told him that he was on private property. He then told another "shooter" that he had to leave where he was as he shouldn't have been there.

While I realise that this hunt is part of living in the country, in fact we have a brace of pheasants in the freezer, but  would have thought that permission would be needed to have been sort before crossing the fence and ditch with his two dogs. I don't think that it is in my lease.

This is all pretty trivial

From what started as a comment that I made on the over optimistic promise about a data recovery insurance scheme it seems that an awful of effort ha gone into getting information on it removed.

Contrary to what is being said this was the start of all this nonsense. It just so happens that it came to my attention and I made a blog posting on the subject. I just happened to purchase a HDD from Canada Computers and was offered an insurance plan from one of the sales staff. After having a conversation about the service, which at the time I thought was just a way of CC boosting their revenue on the sale of a heavily discounted product, I decided to make a post about it.

This is very similar to Future Shop's attempts to get customers to purchase an Extended Warrantee plan when you bought anything from them. I posted about that as well. I didn't receive the negativity from them, but perhaps they have better things to be getting on with. More likely they didn't even find it and read it.

This is just a game for me. Perhaps I have too much time on MY hands????? I am, after all - a "failed aerospace engineer" that cannot find work and am having problems making ends meet. My only pleasure is to make up stories about those that I have never met, honest decent people, so that I can try and bring them down to my level of misery.

Whatever the case it is not a good idea to cross me.

I think that those that have been drinking should not drive

Wayne McAlpine supports the installation of Immobiliser devises to stop this - please support him.

Please discredit those that question his impeccable judgment.

So sorry about Lindor Reynolds

Her untimely passing in 2014 is a big loss for causes such as bringing bullies like Wayne McAlpine to account.

She did so much for changing Canadian law so that it made sense.

Giant Search Engines

Is that like Google?

Or is there a bigger one? I guess if you have algorithms you can do anything.

Perhaps you can "take a snapshot"? Those south of the border will have to get in touch pretty soon or they will loose out on all that revenue from lost record sales.

Oh no! everyone in now getting their music from online steaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music - but I guess in 2003 things were a little different.

This have moved on perhaps? Well, some people have, others are living in the past and have the delusion that they "know it all".

Western Digital Warrantee Policy

I have been really impressed with Western Digital's (WD) Warrantee Policy for their HDDs.

When I was building desktop PCs, for media centres, I ran a pretty strict backup policy. My technique was to run two 8Tbyte arrays of 4 x 2T SATA drives. I then preformed an incremental backup/copy from the "live" drive to the "backup" array.

If there was a drive failure, an inevitability over time, the drive was replaced and sent off to WD for replacement. In addition, when the drives were approaching their end of warrantee they were replaced by new WD SATA drives. No data of consequence was stored on any of the computers that the drive arrays were used.

I describe the backup technique on my website, - At no time did I have the need to send a HDD into a service that claimed to recover data from "sick" drives. It was during the purchase of drives to facilitate my backup regime that I came across the nonsense of OneWorld Safe Disk. To suggest that I sent a drive to them is as ludicrous as Wayne McAlpine.

Determining who you are from your IP address

Wayne McAlpine has no real idea on how the Internet works. His algorithms indeed!

Below are some of the statements that he has made in his attacks (his terminology) just because I refused to take don some information that I had found about him online. He claim that I have made up some of the information in an attempt to attack the "good character" of him and his associates. I guess that he should know about making things up as he seems to be a master!

On the subject of the article that he managed to get the CBC to publish in 2003

“Every computer on the internet has a unique IP address,” said McAlpine. “And with this address we can find out from different providers who’s paying for that service and hence locating exactly where that machine sits.”

This is a gross over simplification of how you would determine who was downloading what. But, what do I know as I am going to be found out (see below).

The use of "cloaking" software:

When a novice just trying to use the back door whether they’re using some free off-the-shelf IP surfing or surfing the internet looking for tools to make themselves invisible and trying to to mask their Mac address these things don’t work it is a false sense of security and this is how they get caught.

First of all, I am not a novice and I am certainly not using "some free off-the-shelf" software or technique. Even the NSA admit that they have a problem with TOR.

Secondly, the use of a pseudonym is not either illegal or in anyway underhand.

Thirdly, if you are reporting how to perform a terrorist act or participating in cyber crime then it is a different issue. All I was saying was that I thought his business model was flawed and the methods he uses to conduct his businesses are dubious -  I was not saying illegal, but rather underhand, unethical and manifesting itself as bullying.

On the subject of me using multiple identities:

..... these conversations in emails we’re not of the nature of Journalism nor was it for any other purpose than to hide his his identity to make false accusations a private individuals....

Journalism???? I have NEVER made the claim that this was anything to do with journalism. I am a private individual and fully entitled to make judgements on other private individuals. This could be something that Wayne McAlpine adopted as a theory from Joshua Sham, who unless he gets back to me and supports my cause to discredit Wayne McAlpine, all the posts will remain. He will just have to get this blog and my website shut down.

Lying, contriving, Skulduggery and the notion that I am mentally unstable:

.... was completely contrived by his own and not having one shred of Truth by creating information directed at skullduggery and attacking good character of individuals to hide his mental instability as a human being.

I realise that Wayne McAlpine cannot accept that I may have just reporting what I have found and not embellishing

I guess I could be mentally unstable - it takes one to know one.

and don't forget, this is just a hobby for me - I do not run a business and don't have a list of suppliers or customers that will think badly of me if they believe anything that comes from Wayne McAlpine.

Getting back to the technology theme

Just in case there is anyone visiting this blog that does not have a twisted mind and think that it is all about him!

This blog, and my website, never was. Contrary to the way that he thinks and acts, i.e. creating websites and blogs with the express purpose of posting venom about the person who is "calling him out". I cannot begin to understand the mentality of the man, but I guess he is none too dissimilar to the company he keeps. 

Nice one Nico!

It was good to see you on my Contact page

Being a terrorist

That is quite a charge!

You said, implied, that I would (or have done so):
..... indiscriminately kill or maim in any fashion possible in disguise, does that sound fairly familiar to you? .......

That sounds like saying that I have made death threats - all I did was to case dispersions on the validity of your business model. When I wouldn't talk to you about it, it was you who started  what could be called "terrorism".

Part of an email to me - October 2011

As it seems to be de rigueur to post emails and things from the long-lost-past this is part of one that I receved from Wayne McAlpine.

If you would like to have more of a dialog, lets get on a call together about safe disk. It was a joint venture between bit defender and oneworld to help drive their sales and the project failed. Anyone that purchased safe disk insurance was dealt with. The volumes were not there to support the company, which almost bankrupted the company.

I guess  have to translate here.

safe disk is OneWorldSafeDisk
the company is OneWorld (I guess)
and volumes I think means the amount of business generated by the joint venture
those that purchased  safe disk insurance was dealt with - the customers that sent in their hard drives had the data recovered (but maybe they were just told that it was not possible) - I have no way of knowing.

The inconsistency here is if  had sent in a hard drive the email would not have to tell me that fact - my original posting was that I thought the $14.99 was a little cheap for this service. A flaw in the business plan.
Wayne McAlpine has just claimed, November 2016, that I had sent in a hard drive for recovery on which Wayne McAlpine had found "disturbing images". This is an absolute nonsense and I would suggest that this is the latest attempt at making up stories to discredit me.

As I didn't remove the personal information I posted on him he started a campaign of his own by registering a domain in the name of someone that he thought I worked for and then posting links to articles that he had found on the Internet that reflected negatively on that company. This was my basis for my Comment on Dubious Business Practices.

The information was not personal at it was the address that he carried out the OneWorld empire.

Friday, November 25, 2016


Wayne McAlpine, this is what you said (below in  green italics - see what it says in my profile) about my complaining, and the more that I do - the easier it gets:

I know (name redacted) it’s always somebody else’s fault why it wouldn’t work

“if they just would have”

“I had no control over what they did”

“if they would have just listen to me we might have”

I know I know I know it’s okay

As far as I know I have never claimed that it "was somebody else's fault" - if so whom?

If they just would have? - Have what? what carry out your life in an honourable manner? and who are you referring to here?

"I had no control" - does anyone? over what and about what?

"if they listened to me" - I have told nobody what they should do, that is their choice. I have been largely observational in all my postings, largely to educate myself of what I had found.

You wrote the crap in green above!

You can't carry out your life by merely threatening those that oppose you. The fact that only two people that I know of have "had the balls" to stand up to you surprises me too. As you well know if you do some Internet research on someone or the company they keep you will come up with other names. I have only posted what I could document (in the form of a screenshot).

Your LinkedIn profiles over the years showed a clear association  with people such as Anthony Mannella, who deigned even knowing you when  he contacted me.

The OneWorld Safedisk fiasco, which I suggested might have morphed into CoreData. A reasonable assumption as they operating out of the same The Innovation Place. On further checking there appeared to be a connection between Brian Samson (or whoever) and yourself.

Are you saying that I made all the names on the CAIRSS list of those involved? Looking back quickly I can't even find my screenshots on my webpages - they are there if you want them reposted.

From something that started off by a purchase at Canada Computers you certainly have turned the spotlight on yourself. As far as the automotive  industry in Canada, it just doesn't interest me, although you seem to think that it does.

Only Terrorists use TOR

This was a topic that I was looking at at the time of the Edward Snowden revelations.

But what do I know as I was not one of those that put all this together (I paraphrase here) and I can't possibly know what I am talking about. Apparently TOR only gives its users a false sense of security. The TOR website says so, as I have had it quoted to me!

This is really strange as the NSA say that they have a problem with those that are using TOR. However, it is a little difficult to work out what the PRISM project was all about. As I was saying before Donald Trump will sort this all out in his "measured" approach to most things, including National Security.

I guess if you have worked for CSIS (Canadian Security Intelligence Service), as Wayne McAlpine told his neighbour, you will know all about this. He certainly knows how to track down those that are downloading music. No, that was 2003 in an article Wayne managed to get the CBC to publish. It must have been a "slow news day".

I am not sure how this information got here


but then I just can't get enough of complaining!

McAlpine please feel free to make a comment

As I was saying - this is a very insignificant blog.

You should revisit my website - that is where most of the action is!

At least I allow comments - unlike you - you retard.

EU Court to ask search engines like Google to remove results for queries that include the person's name.

I can't even search for my own name.

What Google say in their FAQ:

The recent ruling by the Court of Justice of the European Union has profound consequences for search engines in Europe. The court found that certain users have the right to ask search engines like Google to remove results for queries that include the person's name. To qualify, the results shown would need to be inadequate, irrelevant, no longer relevant, or excessive.

When I, and anyone else makes a Google search that contains a name the result list is now filtered so that information that could be related to a person does not appear. Seeing that Google is the most likely method that is going to be used when someone is looking for "dirt" on an individual this could be quite limiting.

Investigative Journalism

Wayne you are insane!

I have no idea what you are talking about here. As I have said many times in the past the registration of a website is the name of someone that you trying to discredit is pretty much a "fools errand".

Both you and Wayne Morris Brown are misguided in the notion that anyone is going to find a website that is a variation of the name Wayne McAlpine (dashes on no dashes). This is also the case with

Perhaps we will soon see a site published called ?

Wayne McAlpine is a moron

This is evidenced in the fact that he posted that I have admitted that I am a "Sexual Predator"!

If I were such a thing, would I post it on my profile? I just did this to see whether he would see it and respond to it. He did, and I think that it is an indication of how you can interpret what he claims about me.

He is threatening me again this time he is claiming that I had sent in a hard drive to his "failed" company OneWorld SafeDisk and that they found "disturbing" images on it. Unless I remove all the "lies" that I have posted about him online he will expose the fact that I have been communicating with people using a pseudonym. OOOhh scary!
It only took him 5 years to come up with the story about me sending in the drive.

While I realise that he is in a current dispute with Wayne Morris Brown (the RamMan) and they are both trading barbs with each other, this latest chapter sees him at a new low.

While I admit that I have been using a pseudonym, this not being neither illegal or unusual, all that I have posted about him is the truth.
Removing all the lies about him will be easy, as I have told none.

In fact, this is a case of "the pot calling the kettle black", as he is doing the same by communicating as, posing as if he were Wayne Morris Brown.

I have no idea what the problem is between the two Waynes. I have failed to get an admission from Joshua Sham about his involvement in all this. I remain steadfast in my claim that you should not do business with either of them.

Joshua Sham told me that he wants to move on with his life without Wayne McAlpine, the fact that he did this with Andy Nagy probably means that this is not true??? In any case I think Wayne needs to have words with Josh, as he did not seem to be the "loyal employee" that he first made out that he was.

Unlike Wayne Morris Brown I do not have a list of customers or suppliers that Wayne McAlpine can contact to spread his own special brand of venom.
Let him try, he could even try complaining to Google again!
