I'll agree it stinks, the prevelance of skunk is the problem there, other weed or hash tends to be less offensive, unfortunately its harder to get as its easier to grow skunk than smuggle weed across borders.

I think maybe you could do with a smoke or a drink mate, you seem a little angry, are you OK?
I guess no youth has ever eaten cheese and gone on to murdering either.
Re: Why....just why?
IoT fridge, why? Eyeballs + post it note, I spend enough time staring into it randomly anyway while I am tryng to remember what I came in the kitchen for.
Re: How survivable is the F35?
Have a search for some picture of damaged A10s they have been built with one role, fly quite low around a battlefield and ruin the enemies day, they can survive a lot. That gun has to be a psychological weapon in its own right.
Re: JMcA obviously!
Just finished, Reamde and JMcA is the first guy who came to mind seeing this poll.
Let me guess
It will be sort of rectangle shape and have glass on the front?
Re: Glorifying killing
I don't think its amazing or great, in fact I would rather it was not needed at all, but when it is I rather see it more like putting down a rabid dog, not pleasant but neccssary.
@ Andy Non
To be fair the bible has a lot of that sort of bollocks as well.
Actually I have nothing against muslims, or christians or anything like that. Most muslims are pretty ok out of the ones I have met, in fact couple of years ago stayed on a predominately muslim island for about a month and everyone was lovely, I would recommend the place to anyone wanting to go there for a holiday.
However any lot who happily kill and maim for some cause like ISIS and who oppress people and will not compromise from their own twisted world view and who thinks you should die if you do not agree, well quite frankly fuck 'em.
No joining an army thats currently the enemy of some of the worlds most heavily armed millitaries is the death penalty bit.
Re: not so keen on your chapatis
Oh I so agree on Penang, what an amazing place for food, not only the Malaysian food, but the grub from China town and the Indian curry houses.
You might want to look up the full classification though. Water resistant rating usually go by pressure, so something rated at a certain depth may still leak if you swim or move it about to much.
It seems to be the current thing.
Re: Seems like a symbolic fine
Because as you get further and further into security clearance, they tend to go further back and dig deeper, send people round to question your old college friends stuff like that. At least in the UK as far as I am aware they do.
@ Dr Mouse
Actually if she got the perfume out and started spraying it around in a massive cloud I would have no problems with objecting.
Try looking up power vaping on youtube, it's a bit more antisocial than e-cig types.
Re: "Almost certainly"
All the pieces are opinion pieces, you did a thourough review and made sure? Must have taken a while to work your way through. Hows your opinion on vaccinations?
No oit can still be unpleasant seems to me there's to types a vapours present at work, those who have the normal vaper and those who are getting into the turbo charged custom versions, the normal ones are pretty inoffensive, the turbosized ones produce huge amounts of smoke that fills up the room we work in (literally hiding the prson vaping when they exhale). Its like being under assualt at a perfume counter during Christmas.
You know reading this thread.
The saying about glass houses really comes to mind.
Re: What is this HTTPS I keep reading about
Yes but be serious you would only really expect to see that sort of effort put in by a tech site, you know one that talks about security issues and stuff. You can't expect a site that doesn't understand and report on things like that to understand the needs for HTTPS.
Re: Whatever next?
Trout are very powerful and carry underwater weapons.
Re: There are other options
It's not always convenience trumps security its knowledge, on a tech website people understand your post, elsewhere people are going to go huh. The companies get away with tracking half the time because poeple don't really get it, or know what they could do about it.
Re: Earth to Microsoft
Starting to wonder about that, I never really bothered with Linux as it was to much arsing about setting it up, (yes I know its got easier, but I remember the pain of trying to get dual monitors on a radeon graphics card working), and for me the pc was just a tool to get stuff done.
But MS are now making any effort worth it, and its not like they managed to make win 8 a user friendly experience anyway, I can't help but wonder whether its going to cause people to suddenly work out the value of effort v privacy. I have non techy friends who having heard the comments about win 10 and want none of that shit, IOS or Linux could come good out of this.
Re: I'm sorry
I was thinking this, some poor lass down the road got bottled in the face a few weeks back by some drunk who actually did it through her car windscreen causing nerve damage to the face. The judge gave him a suspended sentence. Sort that shit out first.
Re: Time to end the 'war on drugs'
From personal experience as a student in Bolton, I can say the police showed quite a relaxed attitude in general to a bit of weed being smoked, sometimes we even had off duty ones at parties.
Funnily enough the only time we did get in trouble was when someone picked a daffodil from a council planted area, that apparently needed a black maria, a van full of cops, two dog teams and a squad car, with us all being slammed into the side of the van and verbally abused.
Re: Well who knows ? @ Cornz1
Stupider is described as an adjective of stupid in the Oxford dictionary
Re: "Just a thought"
For hell meetings, there was an AD agency in London a good few years back, that painted the meeting room some really hideous bright colours, purple and orange and had no seats or other comforts. The idea was that you only wanted to spend a brief time in it so meetings were quick and to the point.
Re: No keyboard present, press F1 to continue
If you think about it, it makes you provide the perfect fix.
Re: I would like to live in subsidised housing too.
My friend lived in Denmark for a while and they had some form of rent control in action, which meant the apartments where he lived there was a mix from high earning professionals all the way economically down to unemployed, he said it seemed to lead to less ghettoization.
25 million and a clear conscience seems like a win to me.
Seems a of a bit harsh judgement of Americans.

A server upgrade is a cost to a business when nothing seems to be wrong with the current one.
Re: Terminate their funding NOW
How do you know its going to stress the bears until you find out?
Seems to me its was experiment, see results act on conclusion.
PS you can often get quite close to wildlife, some animals are indifferent (or seem so), some animals get used to things and don't care.
I think this is where I was going wrong, I was digging holes and burying them head first.
Re: @Graham Marsden
I get some of your point, farming gators etc is fine, But how do you farm sharks?
Shark Trust says shark leather comes from a variety of sharks, and some of the ones it lists are on IUCN as endangerd or critical. Obviously we do not know for this companines sourcing, but I might actually email them and find out.
Re: Hah! Luxury! @ Fink-Nottle
Oh dear, have an upvote from me. :)
Re: Hah! Luxury!
Yeah well when I was a lad, all we had was an abacus and storage was dried peas lined up.
Time for Windows to go on a diet. Speaking as a windows mostly user, I think 7 was the last iteration I cared about anyway. Will be running Lnux before 10.
I haven't run tree size on my Win 7 install, might have to now.
Council security gave me the impression that they spent more time monitoring employees and checking what they looked at on the web and emails than anything,
I got the feeling it was treated like an extension of HR, where there job was to a make sure no one looks at someting that could cause a problem (note in the councils I have worked in policies on sexism and racism mean that even if someone overhears something and finds it offensive then it's treated as sch, e.g working with my Indian friend if I asked him to translate something and said it was al dirkha dirkha jihad to me even if it was just in conversation between us (or if he calls me a Kafir) with no offence meant or taken between each of us, is a possible offence if someone overhears it and finds it racist), so the IT dept watch the staff to make sure the council doesn't get one on some HR policy breach, or find evidence to get rid of people by the same way since it can be a bugger getting rid of long term council staff.
Of course I may be cynical but having worked for various councils up and down the country the biggest conclusion I have come to is a large percentage of my council tax is wasted on idiocy, internal politics and general fuckwittery.
Re: There is an officer...
Oh I figured the minister was just being a self important arse tbh. But the secretary definetly did not have (quite) high enough clearance it was a humungous no no to insist and figured he was just being a self important arse about demanding that as well.
Re: There is an officer...
Then they better also provide them with protection for when a councillor phones up and every rule is dropped to keep them happy.
Have also seen same thing with home office, minister questioning whether I had the security clearance to be seeing his emails (whilst fixing a problem with outlook talking too exchange), then insisting and being an arse because I would not let his secretary (who definetly did not have clearance that high) have access to his mail box on her PC because he said so.
Having worked briefly on council tax for a council, them asking for your credit history or bank statements is weird, we never had to do anything like that even when doing debt recovery/ chasing non payers for the council. I can't even see why it would be elevant unless they thought something dodgy was going on, that sounds more like an investigation than standard practice.
Re: I hope he wins
I hope he wins because if you look through that PDF it seems a completly unfair and bias descision, the claims they are basing their rulings on do not even stand up.
What does bother me is the risk of this setting a precedent. They've got the bell and no-one's complained too loudly, so hey, why don't we get the wheel? Or some of the guns? After all, there'll still be plenty of twisted metal left down there to 'memorialize' the ship.
Well the people who go rob war graves are going to do it anyway. They aren't going to see a sanctioned lift as permisson, they just do it anyway.
Personally if you want to go to the North Atlantic and try and recover a wreck cherished by the RN at 2800 metres depth in conditions were if you fuck up you can really be in trouble, I'd have no qualms about our lads taking a few pot shots at you with naval guns during.
By the same token, if the relatives of the Bismarck or Bretagne's crew were OK with it,
I absolutely was (grandad was merchant navy during WW2 as well), the soldiers on the Bismarck fought just as bravely and most likely did not want to be there as much as the average allied soldier or sailor. Hate the politicians and human nature if you want for getting us into wars, but not sure your average conscripted soldier really deserves much hate.
Likewise I have found it odd to go to places like the Kwai festival and find lots of Japanese there (esp since other Grandad was a Chindit), but I don't hate them for coming to see it, I don't hate it has donated/built by (can't remember the name) Japanese Ironworks company on the Bridge, I can understand my Grandad never wanting to buy Japanese, I can dislike some politicians in Japan denying the Japanese war crimes, I don't hate the average Japanese person though.
We should learn from the past, but not neccessarily relive it.
Also I would say if the survivor of the Hood felt it was fitting then it is fittting.
Yeah I work with a lot of Americans and they all seem quite sane and nice, and yet the media perception you get is muppets like this and Trump running for president and being taken seriously, can you imagine either of those two being in charge of a country.

Re: In the UK
I'm sorry I thought you were implying most people didn't use the internet because they were all illiterate benefit scroungers. Your daily mail type non sequitur confused me, I thought it was you trying to make a relevant comment.
Yes it was a typo.
