Re: General IT
Don't forget buttons & switches!
You can declare that a licence is not required at your address (https://www.tvlicensing.co.uk/nln/), then they stop hassling you for a while.
You only need the licence if you watch "live" broadcast TV.
Re: "I'm not going to cultivate again."
Then there's the risk of not knowing what you're smoking. Some unscrupulous growers will spray the stuff with anything that bulks the product without raising suspicion, for example spray adhesive.
Re: Urban Farming
I do what I can with what I have... I don't have a garden and there's a lot less sunshine here than in California. My "not quite a balcony" is packed with planters full of whatever I can manage to grow, which is mostly parsley and some tiny onions. Any suggestions for a place which gets about 2 hours of sun a day during the summer?
Re: I never understood how this can be legal
What got them in trouble with Internet Explorer was abusing their monopoly position to prevent competition.
So why then is it ok to bundle Notepad and Calc without first offering the user the chance to choose an alternative?
Re: Proud to be a Piler
"Re-org announcements, sales announcements, product news for products I'm not involved with, customer appreciation drives, financial results"
I would have deleted all of these shortly after reading them.
Re: "It just hurts my eyes," huh?
I expect not many people complained about the speed of intercontinental travel before the jet engine was invented, too. Repeat for many other inventions.
Re: My responses:
Yes, it's an intelligence test: either by the employer or for the employer. If they are for real then you really don't want to be working for them.
Re: What to do, what to do?
I may be wrong here, but don't Windows licences allow you to "downgrade" to a previous version anyway?
Re: the bitcoin merchant's fault
Captain hindsight saves the day!
Whilst I'm against going out and smashing up other peoples' stuff, I do agree that solar panel installations and the feed in tariff are essentially a savings scheme for "rich people", one that once you've paid off the cost of the panels is a nice little earner. This comes at the expense of everyone else who can't afford to put solar panels on their home, and/or don't own their own property with a roof.
I wonder how many of the existing numbers are used solely as an internet connection and are therefore unused... I know mine is, and I can think of several others.
re: syllabub is correct
Following on from my previous post, it seems I'm not using the "sync" provided by the facebook application, rather HTC sense, so my previous comment may be void!
re: syllabub is correct
But it doesn't do that. At least in the case of my android phone, if you "sync" your phone with facebook, it is not sending any data to facebook. It merely takes the data from facebook (which the users have already knowingly and willingly supplied) and puts it into the phone book on your phone. It is not harvesting numbers from your phone for facebook's data swamp.
Because of this:

"Up to" 30 years... The penalty for murder can be "up to" the rest of your life.

What we need is wipe-clean re-usable paper!
It amazes me how much I see being printed out, only to be thrown in the bin without being read.
Or people printing an entire 40 page document when only one page is actually relevant.
For the record, I did not once suggest that one OS is more secure than another. Personally most of my computers run Windows and I have a Windows Mobile based phone.
I don't worship at anyone's altar, least of all Steve Jobs'.
Yet again someone tries to turn a reg comments page into a Microsoft vs Apple vs Linux "debate". I'm pretty sure these "Mac fanboys" are referring to the security in Apple's desktop OS product and not the iPhone. I wonder how many Windows Mobile apps have sneaky malware functions built in?
