Robocalling Americans? That'll cost you $1.7 MEEELLION

And they immediately take no notice.

Coincidentally, I just received one of these calls, about 5 minutes before seeing this article.

A spoofed number that began with my area code but had way too many digits - 503515386523 - I foolishly answered it anyway (my wife can never remember her number, so hands mine out to everyone as her point of contact, so I get random calls asking when I'm going to take delivery of even random-er furnishings & suchlike, but I digress).

Anyway. Perhaps in response to this verdict, "Rachel" has changed her name and modified her pitch. She's now "Melinda from Credit Card services", and she assured me that my current account is OK but I need to call them urgently. No. Fsck off. Hung up at that point.

So maybe it'll take more than a $1.7 meeeellion judgement to squish these scumbags. Personally I'd feed 'em into an industrial meat grinder feet first, but then I've always been soft on social justice matters.

Now if i could just figure out how to get a Goblin Teasmade working on American wall current.........

250V/60Hz circuits are available in most/all American homes - usually for electric stoves, furnaces, that kind of thing.

Here in Oregon I bodged a UK 3-pin socket & cord onto a NEMA 6-20 plug from Home Depot, and via one of the 250V sockets in my garage can now use my UK jig-saw, kettle and cordless drill charger*. They don't seem to mind either the slight over-voltage or the difference in cycle rate.

Re: Heated steering wheel???

I recall reading somewhere - can't be bothered to google it, so take this with an appropriate level of scepticism - that heating the steering wheel is one of the most effective/efficient ways to "trick" the driver into thinking the whole car is warm. For electric cars, where every erg wasted on interior heating is one less to use to propulsion, a heated steering wheel is the best way to make the driver feel "warm" quickly and efficiently. If your hands are toasty, you're more inclined to ignore your chattering teeth and icicle-encrusted nose.

All of which is somewhat tenuous when applied to a combustion-engined vehicle like this one, of course. For what it's worth I have a heated steering wheel in my Volvo XC60. It's handy on cold mornings. Wouldn't have paid extra for it, but it came bundled on the car along with more compelling features (heated seats... mmmmm)

Sorry, Windows 10 early adopters: Microsoft Edge WON'T block ads at launch

David 132

Edge has all the features I need

I've always preferred to think of Microsoft's browser as a single-purpose tool to download a proper browser, as in "Oh, I see Microsoft have released Firefox Downloader Version 11".

So on that score, Edge has everything I might ever need from it.

But I do like downloading Firefox in a way that is, as Joe Belfiore touted it at BUILD, "on the edge of consuming and creating" and "to the developer notion of being close to the modern capabilities of the web.".

Thanks Joe. Really appreciate your hard work there.

As a Volvo owner...

I found myself nodding in agreement with this article.

I don't have the V60, Polestar or otherwise, but I have what the article describes as its putative parent, the XC60. Great seats and a feeling of general solidity have always been a feature of Volvos for as long as I can recall. However the overall build quality seems to have taken a slow glide downwards since the Chinese took over. Driving around town last weekend, part of my sunroof spontaneously fell off and hit my wife on the head. Depending on your personal matrimonial situation, that may or may not be seen as a bad thing.

The LCD dash is kind of cool but it's more a gimmick than anything; you have 3 "themes" to choose from, but tbh I picked one and then stuck with it. Rarely do I find myself thinking "hmm, it's Tuesday, today I will go with the Eco theme for my dashboard".

Volvo engines are good but, as the article alludes, tend to be quite thirsty; mine has a 3.0L I-6 which pushes out 300bhp to the accompaniment of a giant sucking sound from the fuel tank. Meh, petrol's 49p/litre here so I don't care. I hear Volvo are moving to I-4 engines with various degrees of turbo/supercharging up and down their range, which will help.

Same Haldex system as the V60 in the review (AWD not "true" 4WD - maybe the article needs a tweak?); it's good inasmuch as it keeps the car planted solidly.

In terms of other common Volvo traits - yes, the bluetooth syncs quickly and works well, but the mass of buttons on the "floating" centre console are small, fiddly, and tricky to find whilst driving. Reach out for the heated-rear-screen button without looking and you might find yourself changing radio channel or turning off the parking sensors.

Not sure about this Polestar V60 specifically, but estate/SUV Volvos have one optional feature that appeals to my malicious side - a button on the console to automatically flip the rear seat head-rests downwards. To improve visibility, but it takes no account of whether the seats are occupied. Known in my family as the "if y'all don't shut up back there I will whack you on the back of the head" button. *grin*

I made this last night - and survived

I made this last night; my wife was torn between excitement that I was cooking for once, and trepidation/mortal dread that I was cooking for once.

It went pretty well despite my sober state. The quantities given in the article made 6 pieces, although I suspect I could/should have made them thinner than I did. For what it's worth, I used grated Gruyère and lashings of sour cream. Delicious! And we both survived!

I note the suggestions above about adding garlic, or folding the cheese inside the dough - and will certainly give those a try.

Re: Fun with ActiveDesktop

Evil desktop pranks...

Years ago, I wrote a simple Winforms applet that created between 4 and 20, 1x1 pixel borderless windows with backgrounds either #FF00FF, #FFFFFF or #00FFFF, and scattered them at random over the desktop.

Looked exactly like dead LCD pixels. Particularly fun when run on a colleague's brand new super-large, super-expensive monitor.

The CRT equivalent, of course, was to create a 3x2 pixel bitmap in MS-Paint, and colour every pixel the default desktop tint except for the top-right one, which would be set to magenta #FF00FF. Save it as the stretched desktop wallpaper, and Windows would do a beautiful job of scaling and smoothing it up to desktop size - et voila, huge and nasty CRT/phosphor magnet artifact in the top-right corner. Nyuk, nyuk, nyuk.

Re: Apple TV

The second hand pricing on the ATV2 probably has a lot to do with the Jailbreak status on the ATV3 and will probably stay high.

Bingo. You nailed it.

I bought ATV2 units for myself and my in-laws when they came out. After jailbreaking, they were superb little media boxes that'd run Plex happily and play media-in-whatever-format from the local NAS.

Foolishly, I bought an ATV3 hoping for more of the same with added 1080p goodness. Waited for the jailbreak.

And waited. And waited some more. Finally, having seen how good the Roku boxes are, I craigslist'ed the ATV3 (still shrink-wrapped) and bought the Roku3 instead.

Apple worked so very hard to lock down the ATV3 against jailbreak, and completely screwed themselves in the process. Without jailbreak the ATV is crippled. Stray from Apple's model of "buy rent everything from the iTunes store in MP4 format" and you're SOL.

Roku and others saw the opportunity and came up with a much better product. The free market at its finest.

Welcome.

All of the below is IMHO, and I'm sure everyone here will have their own thoughts...

I'd probably start with one of his Discworld books. Although they feature recurring characters and in-jokes, this doesn't mean you have to start with the very first. His style of writing and humour changed slightly over the years, meaning that some of the later books are much funnier than the very earliest ones.

Two "best book to read first" suggestions would be "Guards, Guards!" (introduces the hard-bitten, cynical misanthrope night watchman Sam Vimes) or "Witches Abroad" (which (ahaha) introduces the witches Granny Weatherwax, Nanny Ogg and Magrat Garlick).

My favourite of all time is the non-Discworld "Good Omens", which as TFA mentions was a collaboration with Neil Gaiman. An angel and a demon collaborate to prevent the Apocalypse, involving the M25, black nuns, paintballing, a Satanic Hellhound who likes to chase cats, and various "Americans and other aliens".

RIP Sir Pterry. We met only once, at a book-signing in Chester, and my pimply 20-something self was so over-awed to meet one of my literary heroes that I stuttered incoherently and made a fool of myself.

Storm in a K-Cup: My SHAME over the eco-monster I created, says coffee pod inventor

Re: Hipsters

> I'd even grind my own beans if I could, but alas, I don't have a grinder.

Totally off on a tangent now but my advice to anyone is to buy a hand ceramic burr grinder (can get them for 30 to 40 dollars) and use a French press. It makes about the best coffee and though hand grinders are slower (but cheaper too) than an electric one there is something mildly zen about hand grinding before enjoying some wonderful coffee.

And to think the GP poster said Keurig was for hipsters.

Do you also hand-whittle your coffee spoons using vintage woodworking tools, and cast your own pottery for the coffee mug?

The ironing is delicious.

For what it's worth, I have a Keurig machine - I'd have thought it was about as un-Hipster as could be. Pop a capsule in it first thing in the morning, get a cup (or two - like teabags, they can be re-used once) of fresh tasty coffee 30 seconds later. Yum.

(And there are organic coffee-pods that use some sort of paper mesh construction rather than the plastic shell that this article references, if recycling's your thing. No discernable difference in taste.)

Amen. I installed Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 (the MSDN image) on a laptop yesterday and it had 176+ updates to install; took about 6 hours to grind through it all. Admittedly, this was an older machine with spinny-disk storage, but you'd think Microsoft could at least merge all the updates into the ISOs they make available - to save traffic on the WU servers, if nothing else.

Yes, I could have used DISM or something similar to merge the updates into the image myself, but I only had one machine to build, then clone.

Good point, within reason, but that's like saying that we have no right to criticize North Korea's prison labor camps because we have prisons of our own. Shades of gray.

I left the UK a while ago, but tell me - are people being dragged away by the police in the middle of the night for calling David Cameron a hypocritical, arrogant two-faced tosser?

No?

Then let's continue to criticize China, and recognize that the West, though by no means beyond reproach, is still a goddamn beacon of freedom and liberty compared to there.

And just to earn my share of downvotes for the day I'll throw this thought in - if there's a threat to free speech in the West, it comes not from governments, but from the new authoritarian Left - "you can say what you want as long as it meets our standards of right-on Groupthink. And you can only have a valid opinion on /anything/ if you're not a heterosexual white male."
