If you're going to be Battersea Dogs home you should go the whole hog:
"Hello! Battersea Dogs' Home! Jack Russel speaking"
I like to point out that my behaviour is professional. I'm being paid to do it, that makes it professional.
The key is not to do so at a time such that people are inclined to stop paying you. Then it would be unprofessional.
I've gone with uBlock Origin as well, it performs a good deal better than adBlock. Previously I used adBlock Edge, the open source fork of adBlock, which didn't do white-listing. If nothing else the fragmentation makes it hard to buy white listing in all the adblockers...
Curiosity caused me to go find the difference between uBlock and uBlock origin: it's described here: https://www.ublock.org/faq/ for the nosey.
It's time to repeat poe's law isn't it?
"without a clear indicator of the author's intent, parodies of extreme views will, to some readers, be indistinguishable from sincere expressions of the parodied view". It could be satire. He could mean it. Who knows.
Much like recent headlines in the UK, sometimes the line between news and satire is so blurred as to be invisible.
Indeed, I thought most cars had flat spots at least at the revs at which UK emissions tests were carried out, this is just taking it to the next level.
I've found all payment processing types to thieving sons of gunns, it could just be they're trying to fit in with the existing players....
Also the railway would for many different reasons benefit from continuous coverage as well, GSM-R doesn't offer much in that regard.
I presume they want to put the transmitters on the top of hills and sadly not everyone shares my predilection for hill-top fortresses. Imagine rural North Wales, I'd guess there are plenty of places where by you'd be doing a lot of digging \ stringing up of power lines if you wanted to put a mast up, but there are still villages in the valleys bellow. I can't help but feel if you put the masts in valleys you'd need an awful lot more of them, much as RF engineering is a dark art as far as I'm concerned.
To be fair, I entirely agree, there is certainly room for preference here. It's more a generalised terror of pink meat that I take issue with.
blow it's nose and wipe it's ar$e is the correct way to cook steak. Certainly a good vet should be able to get it back in the field.
There's a PA company (mackie?bose? someone odd) who used to use a bulb for speaker protection. If you drove it too hard the bulb lit up, increasing in resistance as it got hotter. The bulb would then finally blow, saving the drivers, with which it was in series.
On the contrary moiety: your HD Video Spin - centrifuge/video projector - will definitely get kick started. If you've planned it well all your friends should trouser a fair amount of money from it, before returning the favour. You might not sell any, but I wouldn't worry about that.....
These people only aspire to be FIFA. Give them 70 years of this game and they'll achieve similar results to FIFA I suspect.
The British were more than willing for anyone who could rob the Spanish to get out to sea and do so ASAP, so long as they promised not to attack our vessels. A similar principle could apply.
Also, I'm pretty sure the Chechens are fighting very hard to AVOID being Russian.
I still laugh every time I see that.
I've rather assumed that advertisers are just praying that we all shift to mobile and that rooting phones continues to be a pain in the proverbial. As an example, my own phone still sadly lacks adblock (and I very much feel that lack) but I keep being to root it so I can install adblock there. Others sharing my attitude may well be the saviour of the advertising industry, until that particular bubble bursts as rooting phones becomes more mainstream.
I would argue it was somewhat pedantic to complain about two days delay myself, regardless of your feelings as to the success of any given operating system. The article does repeat Microsoft's statement as to having fixed the issue. The issue being discussed is not the relative merits of Windows 10, but rather the risks of enforced updates, which could yet be removed from Windows 10.
Originally 1950s slang from the London gay community meaning "Not Available For Fucking" apparently. Then uttered by princess Ann* when it was a popular colloquialism the origin of which was less well known.
*possibly. One of the princesses. I loose track.
It'll finished first as well...
I've very rarely seen things turn out to be "one great man". One person has the idea. They run it past another who likes it but points out major flaws. They think some more, come up with a plan and give it to a team to implement, who notice the plan doesn't quite work and ask for permission to do it differently again....
That's how things have gone in my world anyway.
Imagine Assange in Paris
I just sort of skipped a word and greatly improved that sentence. The rest of the comment still flows....
Imagine Assange living in Paris
I find stack overflow to be very varied actually. Certainly there are some questions on there to which the answer is read MSDN, but I've seen useful comparisons of different techniques on there as well as real world experience of using poorly documented libraries.
The answer is cruise control :)
For those lucky bar stewards who have it. I've recently had hire vehicles (vans and cars) that have cruise control and I concur, it's great. It also makes it really obvious that many people don't have it, as they over take you only to drive slower than you \ need over taking until you get alongside when they speed up etc.
Sadly my own car (an elderly focus) lacks this luxury and it'll be staying that way until I finish the PhD....
1. The giant blue cock has gone.
2. What was wrong with it? How reverential do we need to be of our public spaces? It's only a sculpture, it's not like they painted all surrounding buildings red, white and blue.
Actually on the topic of the Queen's Vagina I confess the picture leaves me unconvinced,l but then it's only a picture - I suppose it could be better in person.
I would however argue that if you were sensitive on the topic of having your work vandalised, public sculpture design is not the job for you! People have been forever adding hats to, chopping noses off, otherwise miss treating (improving?) public art...
It was indeed dogpile, and until google came along it was my prefence of search engine as well.
"we do not require much in the way of stability."
Which I believe is one of things that set us apart and led to our being here today - as we went to higher latitudes we started using cloths for example, though normal disclaimers, IANAA* etc. apply.
*I am not an anthropologist
I tend to agreed, but the issue is then moved: who's court gets to decide something is libellous? Different people have very different standards for this and no one will of course agree to use anyone else's....
Projected to start working at 16:00 yesterday, I'm not on site (I assure you I wouldn't be on here if I was!) but all my friends there yesterday were moaning that more of the issued wristbands were faulty than not, with the replacement process due to start at 16:00.
"garçons en bleu" indeed!
Colour me amused, at this hour of a Friday.
I'd also argue that "requires a user name and password" as proof it was an insider is a little weak if it transpires the password is Password1
Gimp is pretty good, considering it's free. I wouldn't use it for pro-level graphic design, but, seemingly uniquely on the internet, I'm not actually a graphic designer for a living. My work does need me to chop things out of images occasionally, and it can do that competently.
Also note worthy in this line is UFRraw. Again, it's no lightroom, but I have a camera that's about 5 generations out of data (450D) and no one wants to pay me for my photos.
I'm well with those who wonder what purpose source forge fulfils in this day and age of github.
Also, £28k for a fresh graduate is very different to £28k for a person who has done a few years work and has some marketable skills
...actually, I assume it's because in Brussels they don't fully understand the importance of a decent cup of tea. It's coffee or nothing there, if you are English.
(and no, I did not vote kipper)
....which is exactly why I couldn't bring my self to vote for our own leaf-munching luddites.
Voting today really did make me feel dirty, but it has to be done.
It is nationalised now: the EU said we had to stop giving Network Rail £11bn a year and pretending it was a separate company. After much sucking of teeth and realising that passengers weren't going to find and extra £11bn between them (nor were the Operating Companies) it was renationalised. Quietly without announcement I grant you, because that would be to admit privation had been less than a complete success, but none the less, network rail is once again part of the ministry of transport. The operating companies (and those they lease the trains from) remain private, but all the infrastructure is now public again.
Indeed. It'd be good to see a non-fiction version though, the operator provided ones seem to be a figment of their imagination.
I've gone for that approach, via lastpass, as such all my new passwords are now the maximum allowed length and support the maximum allowed range of characters. I let it import my old passwords and I'm changing them piecemeal.
This leaves the interesting question of what happens when IoT companies go bust as well: do you have to bin your fridge if you got it from a company that goes bust? What about smaller companies? When the only software engineer leaves, the new guy takes over, can't do anything with the abysmal documentation left to him (don't pretend that's never happened, even if it shouldn't) he starts the new products from scratch, are they really going to keep patching old products though don't understand?
For that matter I've been involved in projects where by I've built something, then left and it's just been left working again in the smaller business sector. Do I get kept on retainer for the rest of my life? What happens if I left on bad terms? Don't have time? Changed industry completely?
Things that need patches for the rest of there working lives open the industry up to a entirely new range of interesting and exciting problems....
Can definitely confirm that winter tyres will get you down snowy mountain roads from hotel to ski run.
Went skiing with a local in Italy and that is precisely what we did.
Upvoted purely for being interesting...
Yes, I've sat through a few talks from Japan Rail, there are no accidents, so long as you count them exactly the right way. However it's still quite impressive - there's not been any deaths that can legally be blamed on them - no train crashes or such like.
Oh and I agree the Japanese have phones on trains sorted: you're not allowed to use them. Playing games (on silent) is ok and popular, but talking on the phone is not.
That would seem to be the obvious course of action wouldn't it?
The policeman with the sledge hammer will be better paid, briefly, until he's deemed to expensive and sacked?
(For clarity I'm firmly of view that the only man to enter parliament with honest intentions was guy fawkes and have no idea which particular bunch of bastards I'm going to vote for this time round, but I'm sure I'll feel soiled for having voted for them)
The problem is that the public at large have an IQ slightly lower than the square root of the dumbest person in the group. Given "the public" is a very large group with some very dumb people, so they may very well be right to treat them as complete half-wits, if not a little over generous.

Have one and love the thing. I get 2 days of *my* average use out of the battery, 3 of very light 1 if I accidentally leave google maps open all day and the brightness on full (because I'm on holiday some where sunny. Rarely need to use that brightness here...)
Personal opinion and all that, but I quite like the thing.
It is something adblock can do you will be pleased to learn.
If youtube do move to block adblock then I'll cheerfully stop using them - I don't watch much on there in any case. El reg on the other hand I always feel slightly guilty about adblocking, but there's no subscription here.
You have pretty much described my TV watching as it stands...
I do listen to commercial radio(kerarrang replacement services, what ever it calls it self), right until the first ad break, then it's time for radio 4 (or a CD, if the archers is on). News papers could be financed by an old fashioned method where by you give them money and they give you news.
</grumpy old man>
What do you mean "Look Like"?
Scarcely before has there been a better definition of the phrase "Doesn't know socket from sodomy" than either of the party leaders. Nor it would seem any of the advisers such as they actually listen to - some one did let Cameron announce that he'd ban encryption after all....
Sadly we're not as far from men with flags by way of contacting the controller as you'd like to think...
Actually that's not true. GSMR covers a lot, but not all of the railway, but any case this is like GSM but with LESS data provision, not more. It's far from 3G, much less 4G and certainly has nothing to spare for passengers wifi. In a lot of cases signallers know where trains are to the nearest track circuit, which whilst quite small near stations and junctions can be a couple of kilometres in the middle of nowhere. So nope. No excess of bandwidth to use, though ERMTS level 3 calls for it, that might be implemented by 2040 (yes. 2040. That's the time scales they work on. I know. It's mental)

Intouchables is amazing! Really worth a watch and the world would be poorer without it.
