It also allows Apple to bork older models...
"nothing has happened yet"
errr, sterling has tanked. And that's even before Article 50 has been signed...
"It's not hard."
Have you tried Viagra? I have received a few emails that might be of interest to you...
Disrupt is better than datrupt...
Google do this- it's called a Leap Smear
I do believe that "pap" is proto-germanic for nipple and is still in some use in English.
I had a friend who regularly did business in East German back in the 70s/80s- he said Checkpoint Charlie was a doddle compared to US Border and Immigration.
There's a leap second being added on New Years Eve...
When my CEO pushed for it, I just asked him if he was happy not knowing where business critical and confidential information was being stored. So, no cloud for us (well not public cloud anyway).
my thoughts precisely, I even read the quote in Pete's voice...
Stapling was a regular occurance, if you were lucky, the staple would be in the top left corner and the disk would be untouched. Thankfully, the introduction of the 3" nearly wiped out this practice- I say nearly because we did have one committed site that managed to get a staple partially into one.
Do they really refer to themselves as 'TB'? Every time I read it, I thought 'tuberculosis'...
Sounds to me like they wanted to get their money back. Are they in one of those states that allows the police to keep the proceeds that are taken in evidence?
there's the issue- the parents that scream and froth at the mouth about these kind of things are usually the ones that are trying to deflect attention from their own parenting...
I've been thinking of building a biltong box on the back of one of ours...
The cleanout event got nicknamed "The Purge". For ages after, any management request for hardware (new keyboard, printer cartridge etc) would get turned down with the response "well, we used to have that but it got thrown out during The Purge". Eventually management relented and gave us a budget to buy up new replacements and spares.
A couple of years ago, management decided to have a big clean out of our offices- without telling anyone. They hire a bunch of monkeys to just come in and throw anything not locked away into a skip, on a weekend. We came in on the Monday to find our entire spares cupboard stripped clean. We complained but it felt on deaf ears.
Cut to two months later and the NIC failed on an "important" server (one that produced reports for management- so not critical). There was much screaming, wailing and gnashing of teeth, and the accusation was levelled at IT that we should have seen that kind of thing coming and we should have prepared for it- our answer: We did, but you lot threw out all of the spares that were being stored for that very reason. Queue: mumbling and grumbling and "well, you still should have been prepared"...
We had a similar situation- customer had a support contract, but on-site visits were extra. Which was handy because one of the remote offices demanded an on-site visit for every minor issue (one included me arriving to the site and just plugging back in the computer that the cleaner had unplugged the night before). This stopped the moment we showed him how much he had accrued in extra on-site charges, for the first half of the year.
One of the best things about everyone being forced into Windows 10 is I explain (kindly) to the friend/family member that I cannot help them because I have no experience with Windows 10. If they try to push the matter (usually by explaining "it's a simple problem" or "all computers work the same") I then tell them that I have not even upgraded our office computers to Windows 10 because it was so different and everyone would need retraining. Again, underlining that I have no experience with it.
Agreed- really liking the Instant Run feature...
They allow me to see which restaurants are selling discounted meals- and avoid them.
When chickens are outlawed, only outlaws will have chickens...
My eldest daughter told me that I didn't understand the internet; I replied that I, and people like me, invented the internet.
The main thing to watch here is "barrier to entry"- as long as no one (including women) are being stopped from entering the field then the numbers would indicate what interest there is. On the other side of the coin, there's a 5:1 gender split (female:male) in marketing jobs.
The only thing I could say about this is that it would probably suit the Russians to have Trump in power so there might be an element of truth in it.
you want "F'tumch" but not "Orgo"
Why was JL ringing you instead of the manufacturer?
So the tickets are $1,799, but they are appearing on Craiglist for as high as $1,250?
Of course, we don't even want to go into the connotations behind "Ramsbottom"...
"At least Nic seems to have been was spared Stairway to Heaven."
"other 80s classics like Elite..."
You'd need a BBC Micro emulator to do that one justice.
...Finglas is a shithole.
We need to do the same here in Ireland with the IEDR
Exactly- the number of presentations I've had to sit thru which was just basically a trained monkey reading text from a screen. At that point I'm pretty much thinking "you could have just emailed me the PPT and I could be sat back in the office going through it"
The boss couldn't print out any of his documents because his printer was broken.
We bought him a new printer.
It does say "farming simulator" not "abattoir simulator"

A robe made of fireballs???
Nothing like a nice bit of nostalgia on a Friday. I knew both Harold and Corinne back in their Psion days.
I was working in a government department's server room on a Friday and found that everyone had buggered off at 4pm and locked me in. Thankfully a chair through a window sorted that problem out. And security didn't even notice the broken window until it was reported to them on Monday morning.
And to take it further- rather than you having to handle the money directly, you could put an interface on the washing the machine that handles cash and card payments. And, for privacy reasons, house the washing machine in its own unit, accessible 24 hours a day. And in order to maximise profit, have a bank of washing machines, rather than just one...
Exactly my first thought- "oh look, they've toilet-proofed the iPhone..."
Usually it comes after years of weakening of standards at the management/board level. Controls and protocols are bypassed as they make "business difficult". Of course, the rank and file employee is still intended to jump thru all the hoops.
once there are autonomous vehicles there would be no need to own one- Just set up a continuously operating fleet of vehicles and you just call one (think Hailo/Uber) when ever you need to use it.
Indeed, and when the article says "And Ireland is currently sticking to its guns, saying it will appeal the ruling." I'd like to point out that it's the Irish Government/Revenue and not the Irish people that are sticking to these guns. We look at our underfunded and cut schools and hospitals and think, "You know what, that money would come in handy...". Might help out with the homeless issue too...
