Re: @ Roo

All terrorists are muslims.

You were saying about it not being true???

Or are simple facts about the abhorrence that is Islam too strong for you to stomach.

Sadly

The "Fail" icon seems insufficient to demostrate what i feel right now.

It seems now MS have gone over a precipice and**nothing** will bring them back. Not even the voices at Redmond (there MUST be some) saying, "We've dropped a bollock Sat".

But the powers that be are now so blinkered and focused on "selling" the dog egg that is Win10 I doubt anything or any amount of customer retribution will detract them from that...

I look at Win7 and think, yes. I looked at Win8 and thought "Hmm, ???" and i've only heard of the tactics of Win 10, its propensity to snaffle EVERYTHING you do, type, say , watch etc and then upload it to the mothership and THAT alone is enough for me to happily bypass it.

What i want to know now is if this mud child is about to infect my Windows phone (which i do love!). I will do everything i can to stop it.

Re: Well who knows ? @ Cornz1

Just because it's in there STILL doesn't make its use correct. Lets be right, the OED will add any word that appears to be in use in popular culture. Just for completeness, not because it's a grammatically correct phrase.

Re: Does plod know?

Feminised seeds have been available for a long time. As have automatic plants which don't require specific photoperiods, you give them 20 hours of light a day, they grow and flower and then you harvest em. But you cant clone em. Less yield but less hassle.

Clones are the way forward though and a cutting from a feminised plant will always yield feminine clones.

Also, it is genetically preferable to grow normal seeds and then take the females from that lot.

5 seeds should render you at least 1 or 2 females.

Once you have one good female, you are sorted for ever..

Apparently.

After all, stupider things have happened.

yeah, like using the word "stupider" and before you cry foul, the fact it may be on some urban chav dictionary does not mean its use is valid.

More stupid would have been the correct statement.

It's like "texted", another word that should be banished.

If your email address is on there then its there for ONLY 2 reasons.

You signed up for it or someone else signed up with your credentials.

As to latter, you have to ask "why".

The Ashley Madison files – are people really this stupid?

cornz 1
Silver badge

Lets look at this

from a "user" point of view.

1: its a torrent and a big one. Needs someone who knows what that is and how to download a torrent.

2: the file is packed, needs someone who knows what that means and how to unpack it.

3. the file has .dump extensions. No file association, no opening the file unless you know what to do.

4. plausible deniability. No email checks performed so COULD be anyone. Tony Blairs email addy in there? As much as I'd like to see the swarmy grinning war mongering bastard hung out to dry for this, I doubt its him.

Hack aside, your average user wont have a clue how to access the data.

Re: 'Cheap' in terms of food, now means selling your privacy too.

I have a psuedo address i use all the time, when their postcode checker fails to register it i tell them its a new estate, they manually add a duff address and i am left alone.

Currys once pulled this shit when i bought a TV, they wanted my name, address, postcode, etc etc. They got an address, postcode, name etc, just not mine!!!
