    Big Bertha Thing welfare

    29th April 1999
    Operations Manager,
    The Benefits Agency,

    Dear Sirs,

    Further to your letter of 28th April 1999,
    regarding a list of questions, on the possibility of my working at

    I will attempt to answer your questions, in order as listed in your

    1.I am not working, I am just pottering arround on the internet.
    I last registered for course work with the Open University in
    1997. This would have involved 6 hours work per week.
    I could only manage half-an-hour per day, so totally failed
    to do the work or complete the course. Not even one homework
    assignment was completed.
    In August 1997, I bought a second hand computer for 150 pounds
    sterling, and was given free access to the Open University
    computer along local telephone lines at a call charge of
    1p per minute.
    Since that time, I managed to build up a body of correspondence,
    within the limits of half-an-hour per day mental or physical work.
    In January 1999, this correspondence was transfered by me to my
    web site; www.bertha.ndirect.co.uk(since disabled.)
    I have to pay 14 pounds and 9p per month for this site.

    2.Nobody suggested it, it just happened.
    3.My doctor does not know that I have a web site.
    4.See answer 1 for description of my activities.
    No job is being done, so no job description exists.

    5.No employer exists or payments have been recieved.
    6.I can think straight for half-an-hour per day.
    The rest of the time is spent pottering arround.
    I can do one side of A4 paper of mathematics
    or computer work per day.

    7.On any day free of a major shopping expedition,
    I can do half-an-hour of original work and
    about an hour of copy typing at non-typist speeds.

    8.My principle interest is a 50 year scientific project,
    which was started 30 years ago.
    If I could spend 48 hours per week doing it I would.
    However half-an-hour work and an hour pottering,
    seems to be all I can manage and
    at that not every day of the week.
    Due to my condition, I asked Mrs. Pam S....,
    a fellow Open University student to be the project archivist
    for my work on the Open University computer.
    She agreed and kept the archive of the correspondence
    which is now on my web site. This is both an unusual
    request and an unusually generous service
    to a fellow student on incapacity benefit.

    9.Zero income for as far as the eye can see.
    10.Not applicable, zero wages or income.
    11.August 1997 and is ongoing.

    I trust that the above will put the internet feeding frenzy
    of the newspaper hype into some perspective.

    Surely all this Big Bertha stuff should be diverted to a physics
    conference such as S271?



    Or even better, the conference that was specifically set up for
    exactly this material,
    moderated by Spammer in Chief - Tony Lance.
