OpenSUSE tidies up disto model ahead of 13.4

Baskitcaise
Thumb Up

Re: Erm...

Have been running 13.2 from beta to RC1 here on an old ( circa 2007 ) dual core Samsung R60 laptop that I use for testing, a few niggles during beta but the RC is as stable as my 13.1 install, just one or two very, very minor glitches ( Plymouth ) but does not affect anything.

Give it a try, or wait a week for the GM.

Euro fraud cops crush garlic tax evaders

Baskitcaise
Coat

continental cousins?

You do know that throughout British history garlic or "garlyck" has been used for not only cooking.

I think the first mention in writing goes back as far as the 11th century, it was used as an antibacterial dressing on the battlefield and also as a blood purifier when eaten.

Ramsons ( wild garlic or garlic lilly ) are also steeped in history as they may have been used as a meeting place, they are generally found in damp soil in woodland, usually near a water source, and can be found by the smell of garlic from a distance hence easy to find for non locals, all parts even the flowers are edible and the leaves make a nice addition to a salad if mixed in with the greens.

The there is the much unheard of garlic mustard or Jack of the hedgerow ( named because it can be found along roads or tracks in abundance ) which is native to this country and makes a nice addition to salad greens as well.

I could go on and on and on ( sorry ) but I did research for a thesis many, many years ago so I may have the dates wrong now due to a failing brane.

OK, OK I am going, mines the one with the plants growing out of the pockets.

Sunspot decline could mean decades of cold UK winters

Baskitcaise
Boffin

A humle opinion.

Being a "very" amateur solar observer I would like to point out that the sunspot activity has increased now this year so if there is a Maunder Minimum it may have passed, but the colder winters have corresponded exactly to the sun state.

It is a proven fact that when the sun is not very active the solar winds from coronal holes, CME's etc affect the outer layers of the earths atmosphere and magnetic fields which do in turn affect temperature.

http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/1998/ast08dec98_1/

I could cite more evidence but I do not want to make this post to big.

Now if you go back in history taking the solar cycle into account and align it to the recorded climate in my opinion you cannot refuse that there is no correlation between the two.

Please spend 5 mins to check the cycle out and form your own opinions.

Just my 2p worth.

Not very often I post a thread, I normally just snipe :-)

Boffin? Nah, I wish.

nightmare...

I hear you and agree 156%!!!

F2S/Opal here and now TT business, what a shower of shite, the webmail is a bloody abortion.

And do not mention the billing, every month I get a demand saying I am being cut off because of unpaid bills that had been paid the previous week by DD, the way it has been for years. Ever month I call the helldesk and they say "Disregard it is a cock up"

My speed has dropped by nearly half and this is supposed to be on a priority 1/20 contention line, I can only get 3+ meg due to distance from exchange but now I am lucky if I can hit 2 meg, it also decides to go walk about at different times which really screws my servers up.

Arghh! they make my blood boil.

I could go on* but as it is the weekend I shall try and keep the old BP level down.

*Oh I certainly could go on, and on, and on!

"However sending raw materials into space for assembly after reaching orbit is a good shot. I'm talking rolls of sheet metal, girders/framework. PV panels, Screws and Fixings, etc."

So if there is a malfunction and the power is not enough for orbit at least the houses that will be demolished by the stuff coming back will have the tools and supplies needed to repair the damage.
