So you can code on paper and post it to someone. Reminds me of PGP. Power up the racks of printers and start buying stamps.

Trousers Brown: Blighty faces 'food security' threat

fred
Paris Hilton

allotments

I often look at what people buy when I go to the supermarket. Usually, its pre-cooked meals, sweets, crisps and other crap. Instead of buying veggies and meat and making a meal, they economise by buying cheaper pre-cooked crap, which is worse for them, and heat this up. Its cheaper and better for them to actually cook a good meal where the ingredients can still be bought for a reasonable price especially when one buys the 2for1 offers.

The other option is to use the garden for what it was intended for. A vegterible patch! Veg is easy to grow and almost free. You can use the bathwater to water it. Run a hosepipe up to the bath, and stand with it next to the veggie plot. Then suck on the tube until you hear the gurggeling noise (or get a mouthful of water) and then water the veggie plot.

Paris' patch watering? (^pat^snat)

1:1 contention - off topic

I use Gib Telecom (in Gibraltar) and they provide 1:1 contention ratio on all their ADSL. However, 1 256/512Mbit connection inclusive of filter/phone line is £24 a month. It sounds expensive, but when I compare this to the UK & Spain I feel a lot better off. I check it regularly and always get the same up/down rate each time. A 512/2,048 KB link is rather dear at £94 per month.

I don't know if that many people here realise what they get, and there is competition from CTS now who offer wimax connections, but the contention is at least 20:1 and we shall see how much the average user will notice. I would. Like an earlier poster wrote, many think its witchcraft

EU watchdogs probe German and Swedish gambling blockades

Thumb Up

People have the choice on how they spend their money.

There is an assumption that those who gamble online are spending their lives' saving on it, which is further from the truth than could be imagined. The majority of players are casual ones having a flutter; there are others who really do play with a lot of cash, but these are serious players and would other wise play in a casino.

Gambeling companies would not survive if the players lost lots of money on the games, which is why these games pay out rather well. Otherwise, its bad for their business "Come play and loose" is not a good strapline. As a result players are really winning.

The companies also let you play for free. You can bet on the tables with virtual money, and win. Of course, its not real money and you cannot put it into the bank accouny ;P If a player wants to play with real money then the option is there. Of course, this is a ploy to get the player comfortable with the game so that s/he will feel comfortable and then wager real bets. This works both ways. The player gains confidence and wins more money on the real tables, and the companies gain a client.

These people are often playing for fun and relaxation, and I expect they get a similar joy from a table that I get from playing my favourite MMORG.

Online gambeling is well regulated and if players are highlighted as having a gambeling problem, they are usually contacted and asked if they want to suspect their account, or have hard limits set so that they cannot gamble their lifes savings away.

Back to the point: People have the choice on how they spend their money. It is not up to a government how they should spend their money other than that the local taxes (Income tax, car tax, poll tax, VAT on goods etc) in that nation.

However, this is all silly because usually the reason a nation wants to ban something like this is to protect their own internal market. The evils of gambeling can be applied to the evils of foreign investment and that terrible foreign food [that undermines the national markets].
