If the PRS was compensating all of its members,
I wonder how much the predicted shortage of He will affect the price and availability of He filled drives. Admittedly the amounts involved on a per drive basis is very small but for the industry overall it must have some impact.
I foresee a shuttering in the near future.
getting fined for that ain't worth it. Always a faint whiff (OK overwhelming stench) of shitness surrounding his work.
Seems they are trying every excuse, health concerns, secondhand vaping concerns, gateway concerns, etc. etc. Anyone thinking of the children yet? None of which appear to hold any water. Seems that they should be looking at tax and duty and make this an income stream. The marijuana industry in the US I'm sure is looking hard at the technology and I wonder how long it will be before 'clean' THC enriched vaping materials start appearing here. As a former smoker I wish ecigs had been around when I quit, would have made things a lot less difficult and definitely less calorific, no smoking always results in weight gain. I can't go to my local club as they still allow smoking there (private clubs get to vote on this in this locale), not because I think I might restart but I just can't stand the smoky atmosphere, vaping would make that possible and a whole lot healthier for the staff who work there.
Is expensive (about £65k a year) and the UK already is the leading turnkey in Western Europe (148 per 100k of population), we should be looking at alternative means by which the infringers can be punished. The market they are operating in needs also to be examined, if there is such a demand for pirate material then that would tend to suggest that the legitimate suppliers are not delivering the goods in terms of cost or timeliness.

I know launch more expensive phones!
inhabitants of any large city would have been only too happy to have this. One of the reasons beer was a drunk by all was that compared to water it had minimal dangers.
Been running it on 3 desktops and 2 laptops, haven't seen anything to be alarmed about. No failed updates and systems seem to be pretty robust. On the downside I have one machine which resolutely refuses to upgrade, claims that the cpu is not supported, bollocks, and no trick or fudge seems to shift it. No big deal as my wife is probably happier on 7.
Presumably a High School Diploma, but to be honest from what I've seen it probably could be replaced with an attendance certificate.
Not their first time according to the letter. Seems they did something similar a couple of years ago, fines should now be imposed, on the Kardashian bint too. The stuff that gets advertised in the US as having some kind of pharmaceutical property is just mind boggling, the purveyors seem to make their cash from the mindless masses and get out of Dodge before the behemoth that is the FDA wakes up.
Control issues being displayed by The Empire of the Mouse, wonder when they'll despatch the Death Star to Newbury.

There are people who would vote for this twonk on this basis. Hopefully not enough of them to make any impact.
Ikabai Sital T shirts before the week is out.
Sun cream in Skeggy? I'll have a pint of whatever you've been drinking!
Depends on what you think of as thickness.
Strictly speaking it should be tin. Tin when capitalization is required.
Start Menu 8
All of which are free-reasonable in price.
I uninstalled the fb app from the wife's phone and doubled her battery life.
I've upgraded 5 of my machines to W10, 3 desktops, 1 laptop and a tablet. The only one that was a challenge was the tablet, which was more down to the size of the media on the tablet than anything. I have one other desktop that reports CPU incompatibility and refuses to upgrade. This is quite curious as it's a Q6600 (one of the other upgraded machines is also) and has all the requirements for the upgrade satisfied. I've tried the various 'tricks' that are around on the web to force the upgrade but it resolutely refuses to cooperate. I may just wipe it clean and start from scratch.
Figured out that VNCing into the tablet allowed me to complete the sync signin. A bluetooth keyboard would probably allow it too, or indeed an ordinary keyboard with a microUSB connector seeing as I have neither VNC was the answer.
Or indeed any OS upgrade, spinning beachball anyone?
Depends on the particular Atom you have. I have an Atom Z3735G Bay Trail based tablet and it upgraded fine.
I installed W10 on a small tablet, installation was lengthy but actually went pretty smoothly. Once installed I downloaded Chrome and set about making the usual changes to its configuration, the first step of which is to sync it with one of my chrome accounts. Big problem, the Chrome account login doesn't trigger the W10 keyboard, when brought up manually the input fields are not recognized by W10 as such. If you type your account details and password in notepad and then attempt to copy them over then the signin applet disappears when it loses focus. So signing in to sync settings aint happening. Combo of Google and MS screwups I think.
a drop of Fairy Liquid and watch those suckers sink. :)
I suppose, but that requires planning and everyone knows a good session is almost never planned.
Post pub nosh? As nice as it looks, I bet a pound to a pinch of proverbial it wouldn't look as good if it had been prepared with a tankful of 80/- under your belt.
Very entertaining, your ramblings brought to mind a TD concert I attended in Edinburgh back in the early 80s. Good concert populated by an overabundance of hair and greatcoats. Typically not a word was uttered by the band members throughout the concert and what makes the event memorable was the hairy who commented after the last encore... "Say sumfin you German bastards!", a master of wit and repartee.
they would do something like this. Makes an inordinate amount of sense when you think about it. They should, however, have been a bit more open about what they were doing. Turning it off is fairly trivial, I have enabled mine to share updates over my local network, we'll see how that works out.
Faultless upgrade, all programs working no driver issues. Installed StartIsBack W10 beta and all is good.
Or the apocryphal comment supposedly heard outside Waverly Station in Edinburgh, "Such good planning, building the castle so close to the station."
Funny thing I've found over the years is that the Americans sense and usage of English words is more archaic than the British, consequently a lot of words that we find in English to be misinterpreted in American English and vice versa is based on the fact that the Yanks use an older definition. Gravy originally meant a spicy sauce, derived from the French grané, probably from grain ‘spice,’ from Latin granum ‘grain’.
A well executed biscuits and gravy is a brilliant neck filler, post pub or otherwise. Here's mine.
My sausage gravy recipe.
1lb of good quality sausage meat
1 large onion
1 clove of garlic minced
1/2 pint of light cream
1/2 pint of milk (2%)
2 heaped tablespoons of flour
1 oz grated aged Asiago cheese
dash Worcestershire sauce
sprinkling of nutmeg
salt and pepper
Using a spatula to divide the sausage meat into little pieces, fry off the sausage meat with onions in a little oil, add the minced garlic once the sausage is almost done. Once the sausage meat is cooked through and some crusty bits are forming on the meat, sprinkle the 2 spoons of flour over the mixture and continue frying whilst stirring to form a roux. Once a fairly light roux has been formed add the cream slowly and with constant stirring, the mixture should begin to thicken almost as soon as the added cream comes up to temperature. Once all the cream has been added add the milk in a similar fashion, you may need more than that specified as some flours thicken better than others. Add a dash of Worcestershire sauce, some nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste. Allow to simmer until the sauce has cooked through at which point I usually add the grated aged Asiago and stir it in. This is usually served over American biscuits, but I think using cheese scones would work just as well.
Interestingly the Windows 10 icon just popped up on my $100 windows 8 tablet, I'll definitely upgrade this thing, more out of curiosity that anything. With 1GB of Ram and a fairly small SSD it tends to struggle a bit with W8.1, it'll be interesting to see if that improves or gets worse. Also be interesting to see if the Chinese characters in the login screen will finally go away, never been able to figure out how to get rid of them.
That tablets are still very much a luxury item, economy in the shitter so follows tablet sales.
Just to see how bad things can be. I ghosted the boot drive last week just in case it's a complete can of worms.
is that below an F-?
An old boss of mine warned me to be very careful of people with tidy desks they were usually sociopathic.
Indeed most USAians when given a taste of Cadbury's prefer it to that Hershey crap.
bigger conglomerates = less consumer choice = more consumer bills.
Had one of these a number of years ago, it never worked reliably enough in normal use to make it a reasonable hacking target. Pretty sure it was a Monday morning/Friday afternoon job.
Awaiting the arrival of the Chtaptisk Fithp...
Better get those project Orion plans dusted off!
Should be made the standard, that way no bugger will be able to read them.
When I came to New England, some 14 years ago, I introduced a lot of my work colleagues to Hicks as they had never heard of him before.
Pressure the brewers to offer similar rewards for bug hunting their software. Second prize lifetime supply of chosen brew, first prize new liver.
I actually know how to make that stuff, source: my Gran was a school dinner lady. You make strawberry jelly using half the volume of water, the extra volume is made up with warm evaporated milk, while it is still relatively hot you beat the bejesus out of it with an electric whisk. Stick it in the fridge and after the requisite time pink blancmange.
Now if it were a million to one...
how they plan to distribute the server load. Presumably there is somewhere a list of all those W10 registrants and that they've been sorted according to locale and availability of bandwidth. Or perhaps bandwidthmaggedon is awaiting us on the 29th.
Something that's always bothered me about this in the US. Yellowstone, potentially the largest volcano on Earth with FSM knows how many TJ of heat energy lying in wait and absolutely, as far as I can see, no attempt to harness even a small amount of this. The objections I've seen to this are to do with geysers stopping and the survival of some of the exotic extremophiles, I'm pretty sure it could be at least trialled without affecting these in any way. Maybe we just need to be in a more energy deficient environment before this becomes important, well it's only a matter of time I suppose.
