What do they taste like?
The world will beat a path to your door....true then and true now, 50% or our "exports" are sold outside the EU anyway our car exports are produced in what are basically assembly plants, not manufacturing plants so the asian manifacturers can slide under the EU rules. Leaving the EU will bring innovation and work back to our island, along with cheap food from New Zealand and Australia etc. The Federal state of Europe run by Germany who we theoretically beat in not one but two world wars is not a place I want to live.
All that needs to be done is turn England into a tax free zone (like the channel isles) and the worlds finance and banking will flock to our shores even more than they do now, just ask yourself how many car makers would build a factory in a tax free zone?
Win 10 looks so bad that I am seriously considering running a Macbook with VM so I can still use Visio, Autoroute and Microsoft Money which are the only reasons I still use Win 7. Anybody got any better ideas?
Considering it was in the good ol' US of A, I am surprised he only used a 9mm, I would have expected at least an armour piercing 7.62 round (which would have dealt with the mother in law as well) but if he was aiming for a ricochet shot he would have needed a different trajectory.
If the UK busybodies (Government) read this there will be an immediate ban on all drones in the UK with draconian punishments for offenders...
Remember only 10% of US citizens hold a passport, so expecting net neutrality to be even understood is simply asking too much. Anyway, close down Google and you will not need any net neutrality laws.
To read the DARPA specs for the 2025 competition.......fly a plane, do battlefield surgery, go covert and build IED's?
Just think, only odd number windows builds actually work properly...
So probably Win 11 will be OK..........just don't touch Win 13......!
That it turns out good enough to used in a helpdesk environment....and not just for computing.
Now how do you strip the gearbox in a Honda lawnmower? or Is this right way to wire an air conditioner?
What an excellent piece.....may I suggest that everyone copies and forwards this to everyone they know....and spread some common sense to an ever seemingly mad world.
Je Suis Charlie.......
As why change the system said, nothing wrong with TETRA, but of course the buyers know nothing and the sellers are bullsh#tting.....typical civil service contract negotiation...the blind being led by the crooked. Glad I am out of it all now.
If this is as good as it sounds......why is it not offered in quadcopters? CCTV systems? Robot (walking types) systems? even laptops?
How about a Lenovo laptop (excellent) and a can of spray paint in the chosen shade? I doubt the orange crookbook had an orange keyboard......
I forgot to mention the wonderful discovery of the Jetex fuse and the amount of smoke that could generated by the solid fuel pellet that powered the Jetex motors. The booby traps one could set!
Much more fun than watching the Jetex powered car racing around and around the brick which tethered it slowly reducing the diameter of the circle until it just stopped and overheated or sometimes breaking the attaching string and sending it on one kamikaze flight into the wall.
I had everyone of those at one time or another...............
How much UK taxpayers money funded this instead helping the millions of India's starving poor? Sorry to sound like sour grapes but it makes me mad to see such a profligate waste of money duplicating other countries achievements just for political purposes.
I would suggest that anyone who is going to be upset or inconvenienced by these changes sets up a small distribution company in Jersey Channel Isles. Why? They are NOT in the EU....so your sales will be charged out at 5% GST (local tax) and the recipient if any will be liable for the local vat - not the seller.....
Nice restoration, shame about your location I would think the police helicopter is just about overhead and what passes for a SWAT team over there is hiding in the bushes in your garden about now.
When Hollande and his leftie cronies are history after the next election we shall all be back behind our cheap to run never go wrong oil burners......or we shall be lighting tyres on the autoroutes.......
In the civilised country I now live in I pay nothing for my licence to own and carry weapons.
What on earth is this? Housewifes choice? Or a Which magazine wannabe?
Impossible to dignify this article with a comment - sorry.
But a lemonade bottle full of petrol with a piece of cloth for a wick will do nicely......see there is no solution. No gun ever killed anyone deliberately......only the humans who pull the trigger....so if you live in a decent law abiding society....and they do exist......you can legally own and shoot whatever guns you like to as I do.
The 1903 Pistols Act was the first, followed by the 1920 Firearms Act which was implemented simply because the powers that be were worried about another Bolshevik revolution in the UK after WW1 broke the class boundaries.
Since then the UK governments aim has been to remove all possible power from the people whenever possible.
Dunblane was a terrible act carried out by a certifiable psychiatric case whom the local police, the Strathclyde senior police officer all knew about but did nothing, That is why the senior officer in Strathclyde resigned. All in all a shameful episode mismanaged by the police.
Unannounced visits by police are what I would expect anywhere, quite frankly I have no objection.
I have previously held a FAC in the UK and currently hold the equivalent where I live in France (I still shoot full bore pistol).
Excellent article, may I add that making sure the wheels run free (you would be surprised have many cars run around with brakes binding just a little...), Also ensure that the wheels are running in a straight line on the straight and that the geometry is equal on the curves, correct tyre pressures also.
I get 25mpg from my 5litre V10 Touareg at 130kph and that weighs 2.85 tonnes!
I have Apple shares, an Ipad2 an Iphone4 and several "retired" Iphone3's, a mini Mac.
So I am not anti Apple, but I have been using a Samsung S3mini and recently a Duo and I will not go back to using an Iphone again unless they do a deal with Google to offer an android build.....
In a leaked diplomatic cable from the United States embassy cable entitled "Lame Duck German Governor Kicked Upstairs as New Energy Commissioner in Brussels," Deputy Chief of Mission in Germany, Greg Delawie notes that
"Chancellor Angela Merkel nominated Baden-Wuerttemberg (BW) Minister President Guenther Oettinger as EU Energy Commissioner primarily to remove an unloved lame duck from an important CDU bastion.
Quote "Another way of putting the same thing would be to say that a Rolex isn't just a watch: it's a statement that you've got $10,000 to blow on a bracelet. "
Quite honestly people who buy a Rolex are simply not going to buy a piece of plastic tat no matter who makes it!
What did they expect.....?
Anyone who puts critical data/performance needs into someone else's basket will get what they deserve eventually - nothing!
Bean-counters latest version of Citrix el al.....
Screw up Tuesday. No... I do not use W8 but MS's "W7 updates" forced me to image my pc every day so when the "updates" were installed I could repair the damage quickly and easily.
Yes, I know I can choose to download or install or not, but until they are installed you do not know if they are harmless or not.........
Our beloved boys in blue have not upped the bar since they hid in hedges to catch speeding motorists with stop watches.....
Neither the Ipad it seems. Apple are hoist by their own petard here, when you buy something manufactured so well, there really is no need to replace it every year, especially when the manufacturer replaces the engine and re-upholsters it on a regular basis!
Now those cheap and cheerful phones with almost no upgrades (Android are you listening?) have become a disposable item.......!
I actually live in France. Lovely country, but as a France Telecom customer (now Orange) until they improve our internet connection to more than the 2meg over copper) we have now, all this is irrelevant.
No doubt the Elysee Palace has fibre but when I asked our local FT tech guy when we might expect fibre he said "he did not have a clue, it was not even in the plan for at least the next two years......"
I have also a seperate Tooway (up/down) satellite connection that gives me 10meg down and 5meg up but with a 10GB monthly limit it will not go far with movies......
While there are some excellent suggestions above which will fulfill your requirement, as you do not state the reason for need I would suggest a simple keylogger on each machine will enable you to analyse traffic to your hearts content.
You are forgetting that the average F@ckbook addict has not got a life as such and so will regard the adverts as a). educational. b). truthful. c). informative.
When your IQ is in the low 70's you need to show pictures of what you ate/drank/saw every half hour to prove to your self that you are alive.
Like the concrete they have had to put in the front of the Eurofighter instead of a cannon.....
They will be known as .....Blunderbusses..........
Serious query, does the Eurofighter now have a working cannon in the front? Or is the piece of concrete they put in it to maintain the balance still in use when they found out that the recoil from the proposed cannon "stopped" the aircraft dead in the air?
As a shoot around corner system for a suitably equipped gun.
really trust the Bank of England.......................?
I have successfully used Active Disk Image software from LSoft Technologies. What I like is that you can either restore the whole disk image or selectively restore single files from the image! What more could you want? I use a laptop with an SSD drive as drive C: this backs up the current image to another SSD in the DVD bay as drive E: for speed and each evening drive E: is backed up to a USB3 750GB WD Black 2.5" caddy drive. All saved data is stored on separate NAS drives. Drive C: only contains todays data clips and notes until sorted. 55GB from C: takes 7minutes to save and 12 minutes to restore, the USB has the oldest image deleted after 7 days. Once you have lost all your data and files you too can be as paranoid as me about backups!. Good luck.
I seem to remember a head honcho at IBM saying something like..."there probably will only be room for four or five computers in the whole world" or words similar. My thoughts are if you have any shares in Autodesk, sell quick and sell now before they follow Kodak into Chapter 11.........
Cloud computing is another bean counters scam to provide the users with dumb terminals. You all know the two major companies who advocate dumb terminals....well, they are at it again.
Plain wonderful, fully customizable, fast and clean.
Slick, but no Visio or equivalent and it would not read Word files...... I assume that all the other Windows programmes (Owl, Cumulus, Evernote, etc) simply will not run either. The guy's responsible for Ubuntu have obviously worked very hard on this, but until and unless they make it more "windows" (Microsoft programmes) friendly/compatible I just cannot see it being a windows replacement (which would be nice). I'll just keep on waiting and hoping....
Satellite phones all round
List of a liberal politically correct pinky........
Do not use any radio device to pass or receive important data or information.
Do not allow any critical computer system to be connected to the internet.
Oh so simple really.
I do not know what the rest of the world is doing but here in France mobile is a bad joke....an expensive bad joke as far as data is concerned.
I use Leclerc mobile pay as you go because if you do not use your credit they only take €1-50 per month, while the other providers just give you just 30 days to use your credit! In other words..use it or lose it!
Price competition in France is illegal.....to have a sale you have to get permission from the town hall and before you can advertise your "cut price" the town hall has to notify in writing all your local competitors of your forthcoming sale so they can match you........
