bill payments are normally BACS rather than CHAPS.

Re: I live in a 3rd floor flat
first one I saw on Halfords was a £600 foldable, 21kg, 200w front hub motor, shimano rear gear bike. A bit heavier than the vanmoof but almost a 1/3 the price. wonder if the extra is simply style tax?
Re: Front-wheel drive
good luck hitting the deck at 30 mph with a heavy bike, no leathers, no real helmet to speak of. Having had a motorcycle crash at 40 mph with leathers and full helmet I can tell you that was no fun but at least no gravel rash on top of the bruises.
f*cking boss is a c^ck muncher has non alpha numeric characters so might help against dictionary attacks.
Re: Look, I just need to ask...
must have been windows 9 preview. Sounds about right for bloat.
Re: I have a...
see, that's the thing. If the turbo hasn't spooled up then a big lump diesel is still pretty economical on start stops and with "hill start" you don't even bother blipping the accelerator (assuming it is a manual), something you probably have to do with the 500. Soon as you hit open road the 500 will need a bit more accelerator when again you can leave the turbo idling in a higher gear.
Re: Fuel economy?
It was a review car, if reviewing a car isn't it customary to use the accelerator in an on/off fashion? Did you manage to set off in 4th in the end?
The main reason I have a bike is so I cant fit the family on it.
Re: Small petrol is back!
It was joint designed with Ford though wasn't it? I thought the 500 and KA were effectively the same thing with minor tweaks?

Re: But will it make a difference?
Education is the first step. Then we educate our children who educate their children etc. I remember the 70s when it was fine to smoke, booze and leave the kids at the local labour club whilst bingo was on. Most adults these days cringe when they see kids in pubs after certain hours - it isn't socially acceptable any more. My dad remembers times when women at work would be secretaries or receptionists - certainly not bosses or line managers, this has changed and again is socially unacceptable to think otherwise.
The same can be said for sexism hopefully this will also become a thing of the past. In some respects even 4chan are accepting the backlash is wrong (or at least not lulworthy)
What about if she had no naked selfies and someone has taken the time to do a decent photoshop job with a reasonable lookie likey? Is that ok to publish then? How about if someone decided to stalk you or your missus and do the same, is that ok then?
Just because she is a celeb and has an opinion (and is willing to get off her butt and do something about it) doesn't mean you can go about threatening or extorting her. Im sure no actor/actress deserves this (even Adam Sandler).
Good old UPS with a reserve and shutdown is also a good idea. Then again, some SANS wont accept UPS shutdown signals....
I use tripadvisor to find a hotel/venue then quidco to find a site to book through (usually end up being expedia). Saves a bit of money in the long run - neither store my credit card details.
Quidco does have my bank account details for BACS payments but my bank also has securecall so I need to supply a pin number for any account transfers out - so no problem there.
Using the phone is worse in some respects as there in NOTHING stopping someone overhearing and writing down the details you say into the phone. Phone calls are always treat as HTTP traffic in my mind.
Re: An epiphany...
Agreed, as a kid I wouldn't buy many games as I had little money. Simple as that. so we would get the tape to tape out and copy whatever games our mates had bought and share them. Then when I did get something I would share that.
I would never have bought the games shared as by the time I had money something new would have been out so i'd get that instead.
And you could fit quite a few on a C90 tape so storage was better.
Re: Pretty much every game, OS, or application torrent has some form of malware.
I have never had an issue with steam. According to steam gauge:
"Over the last 11 years, you've spent 2093.5 hours playing this selection, which includes 124 items, is valued at $1622.9, and requires 546.7 GB"
So no issue whatsoever with 124 games; caveat - no issue installing, buying, running. The games themselves might be flawed (such as sword of the stars 2 etc) but apart from that I would say steam was a catalyst to reform.
I have an offline cache on 2 laptops primarily with my turn based games. I have an online cache on 2 other PCs and have no problems playing on those PCs with my library. I suppose I could install the "family share" thing but don't need to.
hear hear on your UBI stance. As soon as people stop buying their DRM infested stuff they will remove the DRM. It isn't like there isn't plenty of choice out there.
As for the bitcoin malware at the end of the day people were installing dodgy software, you get what you deserve really. As for "piracy" can't say I care either way; these days I buy all my stuff. This was always true, but as a kid I would have had no intention of buying it anyway (as I had no money as a kid) so I was never a lost sale piracy or not. Soon as I could afford to I bought stuff.
or they could have a separate svchost running elsewhere. People are accustomed to seeing svchost and might not look to see where the process exe is running from.
Re: Only $74 million?
nope, they made a big song and dance over how their scientists were working 18 hour day shifts to get it completed.
Re: Go MOM...
In reality $74M is spent by other countries dining diplomats.
Re: Obvious fake!
don't worry, 67 in 5th so it is still accelerating, probably had to slow down a little swerving round someone on the slip road (are the evoques 7 speed boxes?)
Re: Call me sceptical
Lots of 70 signs over the border up here so assume the car was driving on the M74 :)
indeed, if you are enticed by 1TB and free is all you are willing to pay then install openfiler and run iscsi instead.
Re: Are you really, really sure you want to meddle with the US Army?
or space cadets.
correct. Effectively the company defaults on the bond by nature of it being in administration.
Re: "making space for something more useful"
I wouldn't know what shops are in town any more. I go to Carlisle once every 2 weeks with the kids to the library. I park on the 1 hour parking then leave pretty quickly. Last time we looked around town it was grim; costa, starbucks, phone shops, fake fronts and charity shops. Even the tat bazaars had closed down (although the *3x* game shops were still there). Since the council are now proposing to remove all free parking then it will be pretty much the same price to *BUY* books from ebay than park in town and use the library.
Back to phone shops there was a three store, O2, (old T-Mobile EE), (old vodaphone) EE, CPW, P4U, Apple and two independents that also repaired/unlocked phones (and sold phone tat).
oh yeah a joke, 'cause dyslexics all love having the piss taken out of them. We have an apprentice who is on the autism spectrum, he is brilliant at code debugging and spotting patterns. Problem is, once you give him a task he *must* solve it, that's his downfall and he knows it. His brain works much faster than all of us in the office when it comes to problem solving though so he is perfectly suited to debugging though re-tasking him is an issue.
Stands to reason to use specialists minds for specialist tasks.
and there aren't many phones for you with (native) Linux on them anyway.
"a company that arrogant was destined to fail."
Not really, they only failed because their supplier cut them off at the knees so they couldn't sell any more. They were doing a GREAT job at selling which is probably why the suppliers think they can do better on their own.
Re: You missed a bit
then a subsidiary company buys the bits, changes them enough to avoid the sanctions and resells to parent company. That's what arms exporters were doing for years.
Re: More like
Unlikely, it is more a warning shot. It works both ways, Russia had some dependence on USA to keep its space programme going, afterall, if spaceX can move cargo cheaply then come satellite launches then private companies will go for the cheaper option squeezing Russia even more.
They have already had to sign an exclusive gas deal with China - something they will have done under duress and for a lower than they expected sum I imagine. Once they start to lose other businesses then it wont look good for an already failing economy in Russia.
Re: Great Scott!
nothing like using AltaVista search engine in a console window on windows 3.11. Used primarily to search for MUDs of course.
Re: Linux Steam
that's what PermitRootLogin yes is for isn't it :D
Re: The Humanoid
He was in happy Gilmore too as the guy with a nail in his head.
our LG washing machine is solid. The motor is brushless and a direct drive, only thing to go wrong on it was a position sensor on the drum. £10 from ebay (bought a couple as if it has died once, might die again...). I think it had a 5 year warranty when I bought it (about 10 years ago). Unless you buy a really cheap washing machine they are all fairly solid these days.

Re: Battery life
or hotspotting for your tablet.
Re: Battery life
I didn't see wireless charging built in though. Would have made sense for a watch to have wireless charging. Not sure on the range of wireless charging either but if you could get a few inches then a wireless mat at a desk might be good too.
Seems like you could use a watch for your phone and a tablet for other duties if you so wished.
Re: Who trusts a third party with their authentication?
The work ones are stored in an encrypted 7z file. Not the most technical solution in the world but it is portable and backed up. The password is a strung together sequence of things only I would know. For example, you could use a group of 5 telephone numbers (with a place name or something) and that is a hell of a password to try and brute force. "mywife36leftmeforablackman27ondecember25thintheyearofourlord2006" even with dictionary is quite a monster to brute force.
You can even email the 7z if you like - to multiple accounts. Saves relying on a service hosted "somewhere" that could die at any time.
Re: Awesome drives..
I bought a pair of non-pro 840's and haven't looked back since. Very quick drives. That being said I also had an OCZ vertex 3 which was RMA'd twice (panic lock both times). It has been relegated to the laptop.
Re: I wonder...
Andrews and Arnold are 6 months, not too eye gouging on prices either. I recommend them to people wanting shorter terms but a decent connection.
Re: Married or Sharing? Just tell them you are moving overseas.
the only thing we do this for is car insurance. That is just to keep both our no claims up though (in reality). As long as we declare the "main" driver then it isn't fronting. If we didn't need gas for hot water production then I could see this being a good idea too.
Re: BT Retail used to be masters at this
or say to them "give me discount or I go to sky", sky then give cheaper line rental than BT on the same BT line.
Re: If only they supported Windows 8 phone/RT I'd not care.
If you have the money to blow on a sonos system then you should have the money to blow on an ipad mini.
Re: Re. 49gm/km
well if you want to cherry pick then ariel atom would be a weapon of choice. You could buy that and 5 series to tow it for 95k.
4WD Nissan GTR can be had for not much more than 50k. Had a go in one on a track day pressie once (along with an R8 and lambo) the GTR was easily the scariest of them all, seriously pins you in your seat when you floor it. The R8 has similar specs to this and was pretty underwhelming.
Re: "(the prius) would have struggled to keep the MPG in the 30s "
It was a review car. I suspect the pedal was fully to the floor for most of the rides (regardless of gear). I very much doubt your SL350 would perform as well given to the same reviewer.
Re: Please compare to Tesla?
compare it to a tesla? Sure. The tesla looks shitter, wont take you round a holiday without spending the day charging, cant realistically hoon it about as you'll drain the battery in no time but at least it costs less so you can buy a focus to drive between cities.
I'd love one of these.
Re: But why?
indeed, the current thinking is probably along the lines of a small hybrid plant to get it through emissions testing knowing full well it wont be used as much. Add another 10k on the top and the market being aimed at will still pay.
