Take a Piece of Steel

A day at work in Q3, 2017 is a change here from the serious. Enjoy!

“What were you up to today, honey?”

Right . . .

It’s freezing outside – sunny but only a few degrees above zero. This is my first winter for yonks. I knew there was a reason I left New Zealand almost a decade ago.

The best thing about Samoa is that there isn’t any winter!

Heart medication is now working and it’s healing and getting stronger. Good! Three to twelve months they said. It’s three months and getting stronger. Yay!

Onto the computer and deal with the IRD who have taken eight months to complete their investigation into a small GST matter from last year. Wallies!

A blogger, conman and general Internet pain, Peter Vandever offers to remove his posts about me if I remove mine about him. Nice guy he says, doing the right thing he says, bury the hatchet he says. Sorry buddy the posts stay but you have right-of-reply. Best use that. Do what you will about your posts about me, whatever they are!

Not happy and attempts to make me carry the guilt by saying “No!”. No means no. He did the same thing a year or two ago – doesn’t grasp reality very well this Peter Vandever guy! That’s a good part of my blogging of him.

PV: p*t*r@azusareport.c*m 26 Jul to dennis
Dennis,
I have given it some thought since our quick dialog on YT. If you would be willing to do it, I am open to letting the water be under the bridge. I would be open to pulling down all the articles trashing you if you would do likewise. None of them benefit either of us in any way positively. It would be the grown up thing to do.
Up to you.
Peter.

DS: There are a few things that come into this equation that I will address
1. Your approach to me and willingness to bury the hatchet is one. Thank you;
2. Your articles on me – to be honest I don’t really mind what you’ve written and whether they are up or down. You should do what you want independently of me;
3. Any articles I have written must stand for ethical and technical reasons. Even if I did delete them they will remain in caches all around cyberspace and individual computers of the people you have pissed off and are out to get you. The issues you need to address are in the posts and we’ve already gone down this track before. You have right of reply and I give this to you pretty much unrestricted. Your best bet is to speak openly and honestly in the face of my serious accusations in my blogging about you. These relate to psychiatric issues; matters of fact about your birth, business & activities; and lastly the ethical issues from your words and conduct.
Hope this gives you a good guide to where I am at in reply.

PV: It is up to you. I made the offer and did it in kindness. I had no motive but to move past this nonsense that has gone on.
{No. He wanted the blogs about him removed – they are accurate and damning. It’s the second time he’s done this]
As far as the others out to get me, it is just a few nutjobs that are very committed to their mission to “destroy me” even to the point they make out some really outlandish nonsense. There has been some serious crimes against me by these people and it will be addressed.
[Maybe so. Maybe not. Start with me as the entire expose did start with me. There are some seriously p*ssed off people with Peter!]
As far as your statement, I still for the life of me do not understand why you think I have all these psychiatric issues and if I did, that would completely confidential and a matter of privacy.
[Not if it affects the world. Peter Vandever’s conduct is predatory, dishonest and a danger to the international community due to serious psychological issues. I’m sure that Peter considers his conduct normal, but it’s not!]
In your articles, you made some wild claims that can’t be back up and others are based on a lack of IP laws governing the United States and the Philippines. Once an image has been altered up to 15%, it is consider a new work of art for example by the courts.
[Irrelevant and logical fallacies galore. Serious blatant and unrepentant plagiarism occurred with proof online and much more evidence out following the posts. Defending one aspect of the matter in the way he did is utter, irrelevant nonsense.]
One reason that I have never opened up about some things is anything I say will be used against me and taken out of context as well. I know you do not care but this is why I am very closed off to people.
[Oh I care all right. For the victims and Peter on Peter may sound and look great from Peter’s viewpoint. It’s not mine!]
If you want open dialog, I am here if you choose to engage.
[Years after the event . . . no thank you!]
God Bless you.
[ A blessing from a perverted mind? No thank you . . . I prefer a blessing from the other God, thanks.

Next Up . . . a deep and meaningful email of thousands of words finished off and sent to Australia. A new business partner that will probably put the acid on Samoan things is brewing. A big email is a good start, or a quick ending to the relationship depending on how they take it all. My guess is that it’s a good start. A few personal emails and at midday we’re out the door to work on the truck – Black Beauty, a beast of a mobile recording/blogging studio that can take me anywhere in New Zealand self contained for three weeks at a time. That’s the plan anyway.

Today is finishing off steel and welding ready for a trip to the galvanising shop tomorrow.

The project today is a bracket for a shelf above the fridge, microwave and cooker. The basic construction is vertical bulkhead walls of MDF with plywood lining and galvanised shower tray/walls. Normally I screw 30mm angle iron into the walls for shelf supports. This side of the shelf has the shower wall so it needs something a bit stronger and customised to screw into the wall and a galvanised shower post.

Take a Piece of Steel

Take a piece of steel, 19mm square.

Cut to 610mm length.


Prepare to weld

Prepare two tabs – one with a single countersunk hole, the other end with two.

Rough cut with a 100mm x 1mm thick cutting blade.

Grind to straighten and shape.


Linish the finished item

Linish the edges to round and  faces to remove the black foundry slag.

Weld tabs into place.

Linish the finished product.


Tomorrow it’s off to galvanising with all the bits and bobs gathered together from the last few month’s fabrication efforts.

Writing the Wrong is almost mobile!

Measure the length

  1. Hi Dennis. Glad to hear that the articles about Peter Vandever will stand. There is one primary motive behind his desire for them to be removed: they’ve been harming his con game. All the more reason for them to stand intact. His attempt at trying to portray the situation as if it were just two guys of equal character who published some trash about each other is cute.

    Recent case study #1: You may have heard about his encounter with police in the Philippines. If not, search for “peter vandever police” on youtube and you will see part of the story. In short, a young employee of an internet cafe got to keep his job because of content revealing the real Peter Vandever online. Peter is in fact a regular thief in the Philippines. He will use the computers and have some food at internet cafes, which typically only ask a very small fee for computer time, and then sneak out several hours later without paying. We have caught him doing the same thing at hostels. Still, I’m sure we’ve only scratched the surface of his thievery. The employee of this particular net cafe shown in the video noticed that Peter left himself logged in to one of his websites after he left. He used the information he found and did a search about him, ultimately finding me by way of the articles I post about Peter on facebook. Thanks to the articles, and I would gather, thanks to yours as well, he was able to get an idea of the person he was about to deal with. This net cafe employee was able to keep his job and the world now has a bit more on the record to go by. His deception has been further exposed because of this stunt of his.

    Recent case study #2: I haven’t looked at this incident in depth, but I saw that Peter was having some trouble with the pentecostal community on facebook. He was doing his usual shock jock shtick – saying something outrageous about a well-known person in the community in order to create “controversy” and ultimately drive traffic to his website. This hoax ended prematurely when facebook users began sharing articles about Peter on the “controversial” posts, including several articles from this website.

    As you probably already know, Peter solicits “donations” for missionary projects that don’t even exist. He is in fact the complete opposite of what an actual Christian strives to be. I have literally over a hundred examples of this from facebook. While I have knowledge that he is still able to do this to a degree, I am certain that having the truth about him online eats into this con of his as well.

    Peter has been “lucky”, shall I say, due to there being quiet a lax and often sloppy judicial system in the Philippines. How long will he be able to push his luck is anyones guess, I suppose. He is an extremely dark character that needs to be locked up, to say the least. What I’ve shared here, and even what you have posted about him on this site, is still just a sampling that barely scratches the surface. The things that this guy has done over the course of his life and some of what he continues to do to this day are appalling. We’re in the early phases of uncovering even more details about his past as well. While we have yet to gather the complete picture for some of these incidents we’re learning about, suffice to say are disgusting, yet they will be of little surprise to those who know his true nature.

    Your articles are a helpful service to Peter’s victims and potential victims. I can confidently say that I speak on behalf of many when I say “thank you” for publishing them.

    • This is the second time Peter has approached me in the same manner – same result. Your discourse is encouraging, and appreciated. Thank you too. Yes I knew there was more, and some of it I knew but didn’t couldn’t publish but great that you have taken up the cause to get the truth out there. Deception is obnoxious to me – his twisting of reality is psychiatric.

  2. Once again (no surprise) Hobo Peter Vandever makes up his own fake-facts to support his guilt. He is WRONG about his claim that with “15% changes” he can use another photographer’s photograph. First, he has to get permission from the original photographer to display or exhibit the revised version. Peter Vandever NEVER did that.

    Second, no amount of changes give him any rights to display and certainly not to sell his revised version of someone else’s work. I quote the following and will provide the link proving Peter Vandever is simply a THIEF and a Liar.

    “How much do I have to change in order to claim copyright in someone else’s work?

    “Only the owner of copyright in a work has the right to prepare, or to authorize someone else to create, a new version of that work. Accordingly, you cannot claim copyright to another’s work, no matter how much you change it, unless you have the owner’s consent. See Circular 14, Copyright Registration for Derivative Works.”

    This information (above) is straight from the copyright.gov website the USA, which is what Peter Vandever totally got wrong; https://www.copyright.gov/help/faq/faq-fairuse.html

    • The comments are only those that he wishes to address. The substantive theft and misconduct I proved is unaddressed. Now this is the psychiatric thing – again.

Speak Your Mind
