Round-up: Something Different

I thought I'd try something a little different this morning, dear reader, from the usual barrage of verbosity emerging from this little online space.

Instead, I thought I'd record the post on video with a few notes, below. So, click the play button, have a watch / listen, and tell me what you think...

Yesterday's offer - a link to the email is here... or just click this link to get straight to the free report:

Geegeez Racing Club Update - the fillies, Obvious and Baggsy, are doing great, and we hope to run them by early September. Obvious is about to go into fast work, and Baggsy has already started. Click here for more info.

Malicious site attacks - there was a problem with nasty code being 'injected' into a couple of my websites. I've no idea how it got there, as I take security extremely seriously. I've now confirmed that all such code has been removed. Unfortunately for us, it still takes time for Google to get around to reviewing the sites and confirming that's the case. Until that time, you may (or may not) continue to experience problems when logging onto either Laying System or Flat Racing Profiles.

To repeat, there is no problem with these sites, and I am awaiting Google's confirmation of this before they remove the dreaded messages.

Matt's Rant - I am fed up of inept racecourses bungling track management, and then waiting until the mandatory two races have passed which means they need give punters no refund of their entry free. I am also even more fed up of the growing 'fashion' for racecourses to arbitrarily decide to delay racing by as much as half an hour for any number of reasons. I don't know of another country in the world that does this, and it's playing absolute havoc with bot users of Laying System (and presumably many bot users everywhere).

Specifically, the Laying System taps into a data feed to check the live odds from the track at a time shortly before advertised race time. If the bookies on course are not betting because of a significant delay, the bot will find no odds and not strike the bet. Very frustrating for all of us.

System Reviews - Some of you will be following the current reviews of both Bookie Demolisher and Supreme Handicap, one of which is doing really rather well. You can always see which systems are being reviewed from the 'current system reviews' tab at the top of the page. Alternatively, click these links:

Finally, I've a new question of the week, and today it's all about 'Social Media'. Yes, we've all read about Twitter and Facebook (did you know they've got over 250,000,000 users, and the over 50's are the fastest growing community?), but do we actually give a stuff? And, more importantly, do we use them? Please take a second to click any of the sites you use.

PS I've become mildly addicted to playing Scrabble on facebook...! If you decide to join either, you can find me at:

Heck, you could even add me as a friend...!

Ok, that's it for this little round up post. Leave a comment and let me know what you think of the video approach. Like it? Think my ugly mug is made for radio / written blog posts? Want adopt me as your long lost son?! Let me know!

Bye for now,

Matt

    Hi Matt,

    Thanks for trying the video format. It works well as it can be listened to while away from the screen. Maybe a monthly video (?)

    Regards,
    Andy.

    Hi Matt the video today was very informative and a good way to carry out your updates. Thanks also for keeping us informed re the problems on the website.

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      No problem Hilary, I’m glad you found it useful.
      I’m going to do it more often – possibly once a fortnight.
      In fact, I’ve just invested in a rather splendid little camera to help – it’s called a Flip HD Ultra, and should make the whole process very simple. Should…!

      Thanks Bill – glad you liked it.

      And of course my presentation skills will improve with time… 😉

    First class Matt; everything was clear, both visually and aurally.
    It establishes a much more intimate atmosphere than pure cold print.
    Do it as often as you feel able.
    Regards
    Keith W.

    Hey Matt, I can see a Hollywood career blossoming out of the video blog. . . . Sorry, I meant Planet Hollywood!! Only jesting. Really enjoyed it. Nice to put a face to the words of wisdom which emanate from the site. Keep up the great work. Regards. Alan in Aberdeen.

  7. Steve says:

    Nice try and a good alternative. A bit more practice and you will be a rival to Boycee on ATR. Perhaps in time you can do some more demo’s for items such as how to use certain systems and make them more clearer.
    Regards
    Steve

  8. Jon says:

    loved the video matt and good on you for giving it a try cant wait for the next one

  9. Jon D. says:

    Aaaaarrghhh!! I thought you were a rather nice middle class chap with a plummy accent, but now I see (and hear) that you’re a sarf London gangster with a permanent sneer!

    Noooooo!

    I’ll still read your blogs though. But certainly not another video blog. That was really quite painful.

    • Matt Bisogno says:

      Now then Jon D, there’s no need for that sort of snobbery! 😉

      I’ll continue to video blog, due to the overwhelming majority of people being able to tolerate my muddled Dorset / East London accent (note, definitely not Sarf London).

      Feel free to ignore subsequent video efforts! (I do have the transcript below the vid box, so there’s no need to subject yourself if you considered it painful. I fully appreciate it may not be for everyone! 🙂

      Matt
