Or more to the point when USB 3 came along. Firewire was a lot faster in real life than USB 2 even if the nominal speed of USB 2 was higher.

I use Synology DS File for that sort of thing. The files are saved on a Proliant Microserver located under my desk, not in a cloud, but it does mean I can save things on one device and pick them up on another, same as with cloud storage.
I thought they sold through the retail channel, and on their website, rather than from their own shops. That would mean that the retailers would pay the cash into their own bank accounts, and transfer the money less their commission to Lycamobile. Direct sale from the website would arrive in their bank account via Paypal or whatever they use to collect the money.
I already have my polling card, it arrived just after the council elections last month.
Re: Legal challenge to extending the deadline
If you want certainty that your name will be on the polling list, you have to draw a line somewhere.
Re: “I am very surprised that it crashed” - Liam Fox MP
It is a relatively quiet period for HMRC, their busiest times are the deadlines of 31st January for Income Tax, 31st December / 30th September for Corporation Tax, 7th February, May, August & November for VAT, and the days that employees receive their salaries for employment taxes, usually the last Thursday or Friday of the month. The rest of the time, that is a lot of spare capacity that could be used for other things.
Re: Still don't understand how this happens
We didn't have a tax return deadline at that time, so in a sensibly designed system, the capacity that isn't being used to receive tax returns could be used for voter registrations.
They can also stop the phones from being registered with iCloud, which would make them pretty much useless. Surely a thief would be better off stealing the Beats headphones. Not something I would want to buy, even for £5, but some people will, and they can't be remotely identified.
Re: 9 1/2 shoes
A barleycorn is 1/3 of an inch, and shoe sizes do theoretically go up in increments on 1/3 of an inch. However, Euro sizes are paris points, which is 2/3 of a cm, and in China / Japan, shoe sizes are the length in cm. A lot of shoes are made in either Euro or China/Japan sizes and rounded to the nearest British size and US size.
I always go by the China/Japan sizes where possible because a cm is a less subjective unit of measurement that the others.
Re: I've read the original article
If you want to make a generic copy of a drug, you need to get approval for it which means demonstrating to can make it correctly, and part of that process means holding a batch of them until the expiry date so you can show that they are still effective and safe at that time.
Re: Legal tender?
Yes, if the bill is presented to you after you eat the food, but not if you pay on order, like at for example McDonalds.

The free version is probably safe. The relative needs to run the software and read out a code over the phone to enable access, and likely won't leave it running all the time.
Re: looks good to me
You can pay a courier to go to their warehouse and collect it. It will cost more per item than if they are going to collect an entire lorry load of stuff every day for all their customers, but it is doable.
The place of supply for VAT purposes will then be the warehouse door so you pay local VAT on it rather than it being subject to the distance selling regulations for VAT which may require them to register in your country.
Re: They aren't entirely mad.
I'm surprised that it is as low as that, given that a well known Luxembourg retailer, Amazon, is the market leader, and they have shipped stuff to me in the UK from warehouses in Spain, France, Germany and Slovakia.
In the UK, if all your income has UK tax deducted at source, and your total income is less than £100,000, you don't have to file a tax return. You are also allowed up to £300 of foreign dividends without having to complete a tax return, this was introduced because lots of people have shares in Santander, a Spanish bank that took over two demutualised building societies that gave people free shares when they converted to banks.
Re: Google doesn't have sales in France
If Google Ireland hired an external marketing agency in France to bring business to them, they would have to pay for it, probably a commission based on the sales leads they generate. Google France should expect to earn the same amount of money as a third party.
Re: Holy crap
Except that sitting in an accountant's office, it is a computer that logs onto the gateway, not an individual. We use the permissions facilities supplied by Sage to control who can use it to file returns. The Sage programs, Payroll, VAT, Corporation Tax, Self Assessment and so on each have their own logins and email addresses.
The Congestion Charge and Oyster Card systems in London were relatively successful as government IT projects go.

Re: Won't sell may of these
It detects the Eurion Constellation, an arrangement of circles that many banknotes from around the worl feature. If you made your own vouchers with that feature, it wouldn't print those either.
Re: Proof that it was a shakedown all along
So I can't take on Youtube with video.cat?
We push a button on Sage to file the tax return once everything is done, and it is different buttons on different Sage programs depending on which type of tax return we are filing.
Re: A classic case of Driving While Blonde
They do. Their number 1 search term is "Google".
Before the merger, BT had a very minimal presence in the mobile market, and Orange was not that big in the fixed line market. They used to be the largest ISP back in the dial-up days when they were known as Freeserve, but they weren't so successful in the migration to broadband.
So, after the merger, does it reduce my choice of fixed line providers? Not really.
Does it reduce my choice of mobile providers? No, because nobody really seriously considered BT as an option there.

The evidence appears to be, yes it is.
It replaced Real Player as the de-facto standard for web video, and it was a major improvement at the time compared to that POS.

Re: Strange outfit...
The Argyle St address is a mail forwarding service. The Woking address is residential, so probably a real address.
Re: Strange outfit...
The Regent St address is a Regus serviced office building. They also do mail forwarding.
Re: "...520Mhz processor..."
I installed Windows 95 on an IBM/Cyrix 166+ running at 133MHz with 16MB RAM back in the day. That was a reasonably high-end spec.
All cars registered after a certain date are required to have it. Eventually all the old cars will be scrapped.

Also Slovakia and Slovenia.
Contacts, yes, if you save them to an Exchange account. The phone company will have a less accuate version of the GPS log. The other stuff won't be on a work phone.
On a work phone? Not surprising. It will just be boring work related stuff that is already on his employer's Exchange server.
I don't know if rms has contributed any code to Linux, as far as I'm aware he hasn't. But a Linux contributor could sue for copyright infringement, and possibly Oracle could as well depending on the terms of their licence.
Re: High Speed Bus
Well if they found that lots of people were making Über trips that would require three different buses if travelling by bus, they might change the bus routes or add new ones. In the UK, most buses run from suburbs to city centre, however, increasingly, trips are from one suburb to another suburb, as businesses are moving out from the city centre to industrial estates.
Re: Taken for a linguistic ride
"The CPUC regulates privately owned electric, natural gas, telecommunications, water, railroad, rail transit, and passenger transportation companies. The CPUC serves the public interest by protecting consumers and ensuring the provision of safe, reliable utility service and infrastructure at reasonable rates, with a commitment to environmental enhancement and a healthy California economy. We regulate utility services, stimulate innovation, and promote competitive markets, where possible." - http://www.cpuc.ca.gov/
I would say that is a law enforcement agency. They are after all the agency responsible for ensuring that Über complies with state law relating to passenger transportation companies.

You can hack the campaign process so that when people go to the polling stations, they choose their vote based on incorrect information. That is what is alleged to have happened.

Re: I do believe....
The problem here is that the "T" community faces a lot more discrimination and transphobia from the LBG community than from the general population. The "L" and "G" communities also hate the "B" community and the "L" and "G" communities don't like each other very much either.
