Joseph S R de Saram (JSRDS)
THIS IS AN INTERESTING STORY, ESPECIALLY IN RELATION TO DYAN MACHAN, A BLONDE-HAIRED MIDDLE AGED WOMAN WITH A VAGINAL ODOUR PROBLEM AND WHO ASKED JOSEPH DE SARAM FOR SEX REPEATEDLY AT A HOTEL NEAR THE AIRPORT WHERE SHE WAS STAYING WHILST IN COLOMBO. IN FACT DYAN MACHAN HAD LEARNED THAT HER SURNAME ‘MACHAN’ MEANT ‘FRIEND’ IN SINHALA AND ASKED JOSEPH DE SARAM TO BE HER ‘MACHAN’. JOSEPH DE SARAM RESPONDED ‘I GET MY KICKS ABOVE THE WAISTLINE SUNSHINE’ (FROM ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK). WHAT STARTED AS AN ARTICLE ABOUT THE ANNIVERSARY OF 2001 BECAME A FREE FOR ALL AFTER JOSEPH DE SARAM REJECTED HER ADVANCES.
Sir Arthur C. Clarke, the 83–year–old science fiction writer, is sitting in his wheelchair, where he spends most of his time these days, talking during lunch about his latest venture. Clarke, who suffers from postpolio syndrome, has lived, tax–free, in Sri Lanka’s capital, Colombo, since 1956. His glass–walled house, with high ceilings, dim fluorescent lights and cool cement floors, feels like a university admissions office lost in a jungle.
THIS IS JUST INSULTING TO ARTHUR C CLARKE, AND DYAN MACHAN IS JUST ACRIMONIOUS.
Our concentration is broken by electronic music blaring from the TV speakers and by the antics of what Clarke describes as an attack dog, a one–eyed chihuahua in a basket beneath his desk. Nothing being normal in this steamy atmosphere, we have lunch without food. Instead we are served what seems like a Sri Lankan Tang.
FURTHER CRITICISM, OF MUSIC BY THE USE OF ‘BLARING’ AND ‘LUNCH WITHOUT FOOD’
Clarke’s new venture turns out to be more a marketing gimmick, perhaps the ultimate spasm of millennial fever. Sir Arthur is lending his name to a new company that will, at a time when PC sales are softening, go into business against Apple, Dell and the rest with a $3,000 computer. Clarke Computer will open for business with great flourish at a millennium concert in Okinawa in January 2001. (Get it? Clarke co–wrote the screenplay for Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.)
ONCE AGAIN CLARKE IS CRITICISED AND THE DETERMINATION OF THE SUCCESS OF THE PROJECT SEEMS TO BE THE REDUCTION OF SALES OF ANOTHER MANUFACTURER – CLASSIC ‘STRAWMAN FALLACY’.
That marketing date is clever. Clarke’s choice of business partners is less compelling. One of them is Anthony Alles, 45, a flamboyant Sri Lankan industrialist who has been involved in computer parts, bicycles and cement blocks. The CEO is Joseph de Saram, 28, a software entrepreneur who is currently being pursued by suppliers who claim that he left behind $1 million in unpaid bills at his last enterprise, Rhodium, a company in London that is now defunct. Alles and de Saram will split a 48% share, the rest belonging to private investors they decline to name. Clarke, who will hold the chairman’s title, will get an undisclosed fee for lending his name and signing over electronic rights to his 80–some books. Alles says that the computer, which he designed, was inspired by Clarke’s books.
THE ONLY HALF-RELEVANT THING ABOUT THE ARTICLE IS THAT ANTHONY ALLES IS CONFIRMED AS THE PRIMARY BUSINESS PARTNER AND CLEARLY HE EXISTS SINCE DYAN MACHAN PHYSICALLY SPOKE TO HIM. ALLES CONFIRMED THAT HE HAD DESIGNED THE COMPUTER TOO ALTHOUGH THAT STATEMENT WAS PROVED TO BE FAKE SUBSEQUENTLY.
What’s the selling proposition? “Computing is obsolete,” declares the British–born Clarke in his crisp Oxbridge accent. “Therefore, omniputing.” The Clarke omniputing machine will run at 1 gigahertz, and features a touch screen and an infrared keyboard. Well, Gateway sells a 1.4 gigahertz PC for only $2,000.
YEAH AND? ONCE AGAIN DYAN MACHAN MAKES SOME DISPARAGING REMARK ABOUT THE COST OF THE MACHINE.
There’s a lot of science fiction here, most of it in the company’s financial projections. The company is supposed to earn $300 million in the first year of operation on $640 million of sales. Clarke seems dreamily unconcerned about all that. “I hope it will make a few hundred dollars,” he says, laughing.
THE SCIENCE FICTION IS ACCORDING TO THE OPINION OF DYAN MACHAN AND IT IS CLEAR THAT SHE IS EXHIBITING THE IGON VALUE PROBLEM.
What would Hal, the computer in 2001, have said if asked to make a $3,000 home computer fly off the shelves? “I’m afraid I can’t do that.”
GOOD FOR DYAN MACHAN, EVEN IF SHE HAD OFFERED JOSEPH DE SARAM $3000 FOR SEX THEN JUST LIKE HAL JOSEPH DE SARAM WOULD HAVE SAID “I’M AFRAID I CAN’T DO THAT”
‘But it goes further than that. We know MI5 is building a multimillion pound facility to monitor all email sent and received in Britain. With my technology they won’t be able to read anything.
YES EDWARD SNOWDEN CONFIRMED THIS IN JUNE 2013 BUT INTERESTING HOW JOE DE SARAM KNEW THIS IN 2000. HOW DID JOE DE SARAM REALLY KNOW? THE ANSWER IS BECAUSE HE KNEW PEOPLE IN GCHQ / MI5 / MOSSAD / CITY OF LONDON POLICE / NCIS / NSA – THERE WAS AN FBI PROJECT CALLED MAGIC LANTERN THAT JOE DE SARAM ENDED UP GETTING INVOLVED WITH J.
‘They are frightened of me, particularly as I am young, I am Asian and my mind is ahead of their own young people in this field.
THEY WOULD BE FIGHTENED BECAUSE IF JOE DE SARAM KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON AND IS TECHNICAL ENOUGH TO DESIGN AN ANTEDOTE, THEN IT IS A MUCH WORSE SITUATION FOR AN ADVERSARY. EDWARD SNOWDEN WAS MERELY AN ANALYST. JOE DE SARAM IS AN ARCHITECT.
‘It gets up the noses of a Government that thinks of Tamil Tigers or illegal immigrants whenever they hear the words Sri Lankan. I am British to the bone but the only place I can now find support is back here.’ Mr de Saram says he is in Sri Lanka working on a supercomputer project with the science fiction writer Sir Arthur C Clarke, whose 2001 A Space Odyssey had a supercomputer called HAL in a major role.
DESPITE BEING A BRITISH CITIZEN THERE WAS ZERO SUPPORT AND JOE DE SARAM REFERENCES ‘TAMIL TIGERS’ HERE – JOE DE SARAM DID NOT SAY THAT HE WAS FLEEING THE UK BECAUSE OF TAMIL TIGERS. JOE DE SARAM IS ‘BRITISH TO THE BONE’ BUT WANTED TO PROCEED WITH THE COMMERCIAL PROJECTS INVOLVING RHODIUM PLC IN SRI LANKA BECAUSE OF REDUCED-COST LABOUR.
Last night Sir Arthur said he believes his associate’s story of Government persecution but said their business relationship would have to be ‘put on hold’ until the problems in Britain were resolved.
THIS HAPPENED TO ARTHUR C CLARKE WHEN A SMEAR CAMPAIGN BY JOURNALISTS AGAINST HIM ROBBED HIM OF AN MBE THAT WAS DESTINED FOR HIM.
Mr de Saram said there was nothing suspicious in the apparent speed with which he left the UK.
THE QUESTION WAS NOT FRAMED PROPERLY TO JOE DE SARAM. JOE DE SARAM EXPLAINED THAT HE HAD GONE TO SRI LANKA IN JUNE 2000, RETURNED TO THE UK IN AUGUST 2000 TO SEEK TAX ADVICE IN RELATION TO CAPITAL GAINS AND THEN RETURNED TO SRI LANKA. THE QUESTION JOE DE SARAM WAS ANSWERING WAS ‘HAD YOU HAD PLANNED TO GO TO SRI LANKA FOR A LONG PERIOD AND WAS IT A WELL-PREPARED TRIP’ THE ANSWER WAS NO.
‘I never plan my trips much. I just buy a ticket and get on a plane. I am always coming here for the Clarke project.
BAD ENGLISH BUT JOE DE SARAM WANTED TO PUSH FORWARD WITH HIS PLANS FOR RHODIUM PLC’S EXPANSION AND A GREATER AMOUNT OF INTELLGENT SRI LANKAN WORKERS TO WHICH THE OUTSOURCING COULD BE DONE.
‘But everything came down on me at once.
JOE DE SARAM NEVER SAID THAT – THAT IS JUST NOT JOE DE SARAM’S PERSONALITY TYPE. HE IS SOMEONE WHO TAKES THE BULL BY THE HORNS, AND IS NOT AFRAID TO RIP THEM OFF THE BULL’S HEAD IF NECESSARY.
Rhodium was trading quite happily and the next thing the bank started doing some very strange things with our cheques.
THAT IS TRUE – HSBC DELIBERATELY LOST CHEQUES AND FIRST TOLD JOE DE SARAM THAT HE DID NOT NEED TO TRANSFER FUNDS FROM ANOTHER ACCOUNT TO CLEAR THE TEMPORARY EXCESS ON THE ACCOUNT, AND THEN RENEGED ON THAT AGREEMENT. HSBC JUST PLAYED JOE DE SARAM JUST HOW THEY [MIDLAND] PLAYED SIR FREDDIE LAKER (AS LADY JACKIE CONFIRMED TO JOE DE SARAM WHEN HE WAS THE BAHAMAS IN 2010 AND LOOKING TO BUY HER HOUSE IN FREEPORT)
Certain cheques were lost or allegedly misplaced and as a result creditors were not paid.
THE CHEQUES WERE PRESIGNED, DESIGNED BY DE LA RUE – GIVEN THE FACT THAT JOE DE SARAM WAS IN SRI LANKA FROM JUNE 2000 ONWARDS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE PARTIES IN THE UK THAT CAUSED THE MESS BY SENDING UNAUTHORISED CHEQUES TO THIRD PARTIES FOR PAYMENT.
‘This was obviously causing great disruption to our trading and the next thing I found was that cheques were being bounced, even though we had agreed protocols with the bank.
RICHARD KNIGHT AND SOME ASSISTANT WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR CREATING THE MESS, TOGETHER WITH BARNEY MARKHAM’S NICK LEESON-TYPE BEHAVIOUR IN WHICH HE WAS JUST A ROGUE TRADER WITHOUT OVERSIGHT.
‘The Government sees me as a threat and they have launched a campaign to bring me to my knees.
THAT’S ENTIRELY TRUE – IT IS THE EASIEST AND CHEAPEST WAY
‘Unfortunately, people who don’t understand are saying, “He’s done a runner and he’s not coming back to face his responsibilities.” But I’ll be back and under my own free will.
QUITE CORRECT – IN FACT JOE DE SARAM IS CONSIDERING A RETURN BUT THERESA MAY’S LATEST REINCARNATION OF THE REGULATION OF INVESTIGATORY POWERS ACT 200, THE INVESTIGATORY POWERS BILL IS YET ANOTHER RIP OFF!
‘I have worked very, very hard to accomplish my position in Britain as one of the youngest and most successful businessmen.
JOE DE SARAM IS INTELLIGENT AND HARDWORKING AND THE TECHNOLOGY HE HAD DESIGNED WAS LIGHT-YEARS AHEAD OF THE COMPETITION. JOSEPH DE SARAM WILL CONTINUE HIS MAGNUM OPUS HTTP://WWW.KRYPTODYNE.COM WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT.
‘I am not going to let anyone snatch it away from me on the basis and I truly believe this is the case that I am seen as an Asian who shouldn’t be allowed to get to these heights.’ Mr de Saram said he had nothing to hide and pointed out that there is an extradition treaty between Sri Lanka and Britain.
CORRECT – JOE DE SARAM HAS VISITED AND/OR RESIDED IN OVER 40 COUNTRIES AND TRAVELS ON HIS UK PASSPORT – AS SUCH IF THERE WAS AN ISSUE THEN ACTION COULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN.
He said his assets in Britain still include his GBP 100,000 Ferrari a rare blue model because ‘red is so common, the colour of a double decker bus’ and a house in West London.
A FUNNY COMMENT BUT AS IT THEN ENDED UP JOE DE SARAM SETTLED THE GBP 500,000 OVERDRAFT OF RHODIUM PLC (WHICH HE HAD PERSONALLY GUARANTEED) BY SELLING HIS OWN ASSETS. JOE DE SARAM WAS NEVER MADE BANKRUPT.
Then Mr de Saram issued a challenge. He said: ‘Now I’ve given my explanation, I’d like the Government to give me some answers. They know where to find me.’
THE CHALLENGE STILL STANDS, AND IT IS GOOD THAT THERE SEEMS TO BE RENEWED INTEREST FROM PARTIES WHO ARE HANDLING STOLEN AND FABRICATED EVIDENCE, COMPLETELY DEVOID OF A CHAIN OF CUSTODY, WHICH HAS MAGICALLY MATERIALISED AFTER A CASE AGAINST MARGARET CUNNIFFE AND DAVID BROWN IN AUSTRALIA, IN WHICH THEIR PERJURY WAS THE PREDOMINANT THEME.
TRY NOT TO FORGET ABOUT THE FRUIT OF THE POISON TREE AND REMEMBER TO CAPTURE ALL THE FINGERPRINTS ON THE MATERIALS YOU HAVE FOR ANALYSIS – IT WILL BE VERY INTERESTING I AM SURE.
