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
all.

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

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.

Thank you,
Tony Lance
