Spot On

I think this artivle is spot on, just like the previous ione about CVs. Mr Connor is telling it like it is in the industry - if you dont like it, its not his fault you just need to learn to play the game. If you dont like the game because you feel it is unjust ? Tough, thats life, get over it.

12 months suspended

She should have had a prize not a fine. Nothing like this happens in Cardiff airport. And as for kids seeing ? All I tried to do as a young boy was look at naked women, brilliant.

mercury switch

Have you considered using a mercury switch to determine and correct the orientation of the plane ? Its quite simple, a small capsule (think of your standard antibiotic size pill) filled with mercury. One contact on the bottom, where the mercury sits when flat, one contact on either side. This can then be used to move a flap or rudder whenever the mercury makes contact (ie. whenever the plan pitches or rolls, depending on which way you install the switch).

Lightweight and cheap. Mercury freezes at -38 degrees C, so this may be an obstacle depending on how high you intend to go.

Anyway, implementing such a switch could enable you to maintain a steady flight path of 45 deg, or even allow you to start at horizontal on release, can correct to vertical over a few metres, avoiding the ballon then moving to a vertical path.

Twitter security

I set up a twitter account on my Blackberry, with a reasonable complex password on Saturday morning. By Saturday afternoon, my account was spamming tweets without my knowledge advertising "make $$$$'s" websites. Clearly something not right with the security model here.

bye bye fat cats

CD in HMV prior to Bittorrent, Limewire and legitimate MP3 download ? 15.99

CD in HMV now 5.99

Some margin there fat cats eh?

The music industry was overinflated and is now contracting and becoming more efficient, just like lots of other industries have had to, in order to compete (all UK industry, manufacturing globally, Government trying to do this now).

Get over it Gene, its 2011. The golden era of record labels taking stars out on their corporate credit cards is over ! Back in the real world now, like everyone else.

Outwith !?!?

Outside would do fine I think. Outwith is not in the OED and is archaic english generally only used in Scotland.

Lawyers scared of computers

legacy lawyers

It does beg the question - why is anyone more likely to lose digital data rather than paper records ? We've heard lots of instances of people leaving printed out documents in taxis or finding lists of people's NI numbers on a roundabout in Milton Keynes. If the data is stored digitally, it can also be encrypted so any comments about it being easier to change or alter than paper documents are completely untrue. Unfortunately it seems most lawyers are unfamiliar with this kind of protective technology, when it would be ideal for them to adopt it in their industry.

I too hate this misuse of the DPA as a tool to deny information to anyone. I've read it, and it really doesn't say that.

ethics

I can't undertsand the lack of ethical values of these penis pill pushers corrupting blogs with links to their site. Impotence is a serious issue for many men and my range of products can help chaps keep more than a stiff upper lip, check out my site at www.IvorBigun.com
