The UK was declared rabies free in 1922.
Quarantine rules changed in 2012, so it might be possible.
Re: Do they really expect to bolster their revenue...
yes, because they'll only consider quitting.
lighten up, it's the weekend
you are the loneliest person I ever knew. I wish I'd never seen your face.
Re: if any of them actually provided a decent service
Some of them do provide decent service but they tend to cost more money.
The article's beef seems to be with speed, not service, though and changing supplier is unlikely to make a difference to that as it's largely determined by that sagging corroding copper that makes up the final leg.
Re:I find it very difficult to use the word "bad" about something that eradicates absolute poverty.
Exterminating all the poor people would eradicate absolute poverty.
The really sad thing is, I don't seem to have any trouble imagining you defending that course of action.
Super Cali goes ballistic – Uber says it's bogus (even though its contract is something quite atrocious)
No kudos deserved, it's a rip off of a sun headline from February 2000.
Re: Or am I being too cynical?
Not for these parts
Re: Lots of people have to fill this out
It's ok, it doesn't ask for the name of your first pet
a system of government in which all the people of a state or polity ... are involved in making decisions about its affairs.
You can't be involved in making decisions if they hide the information from you
Roughly 1 in every 2000 people in the in the space of 3 months.
That getting close to certain that you or someone you know will be a victim pretty soon
Re: Not only PC based.
It seems to me that emailing passport photocopies is commonplace amongst employers too.
Moving the goal posts?
it once again highlights that it is no longer about prevention, but instead about accepting a data breach will occur and moving to a proactive approach which allows better preparation for dealing with today’s threats
I'm more concerned about his attitude than the breach
higher achieving students being better able to cope with other distractions
I'd like to see further study in this area. Is it becasue the smart kids manage the distraction better, or is it because the pace of the lesson is so slow because of their less able peers that they're bored?
When I was at school, the bright kid was the one staring out the window.
It's not a ghetto for poor internet users
It's a blueprint for what they want the internet to become
Facebook, shopping and adverts.
That's truly fucked up
Re: May 3,
The election was the 7th.
big things on the 3rd were
but he was probably referring to this
This raises another serious issue
How are we,the public, expected to keep up with all this legislative change?
After all, you can't use ignorance as a defence when you inadvertently break the law.
Re: evidence @Lamont
I agree it sounds plausible, I just wondered if there was evidence.
Personally, I think it's one of those things that everyone thinks is true just because they've heard it so many times like "you shouldn't swim straight after eating"
Re: Not just Eye Candy then
3rd party opinion that it was useful for learning mouse skills is not proof that there was a decision to include it because it would.
whilst on the subject of using wikipedia for proof, here's the nearly relevant xkcd
Re: Not just Eye Candy then
Solitaire and Minesweeper were there to teach new users how to use the mouse
I'd be interested in evidence to back up that claim.
Re: Simon uses bees to make cosmetics.
clearly downvoted by somebody who didn't follow the link
Re: Yes, I remember those days...
According to Wikipedia
User experience design (UXD or UED) is the process of enhancing user satisfaction by improving the usability, accessibility, and pleasure provided in the interaction between the user and the product
I therefore postulate that the people in UX roles are sadomasochists.
Re: People who do not want
Douglas Adams had a lot to say about politics, My favourite is this
Re: A cunning plan?
I was going to ask why anyone would take a device like the pi and cripple it with bloatware.
Now it makes sense. Thanks
Re: What's the real issue?
I think the real issue is that by having any rule, you're limiting entropy.
Didn't see this coming
I could go on........
"People around the world use Cyanogen's operating system XOR popular Microsoft services to engage with what matters most to them on their mobile devices,"
Fixed it for you.
Re: well you know what they say...
Displaying smut on a 5x5 LED matrix?
that's enough to scroll 5318008 on
Am I understanding this correctly?
It's ok to collect and store every phone number and every IP address we communicate with as long as they don't look up who's phone number/ IP address it is?
I'm going to sleep so much easier tonight
No need to apologise, your English is good enough for me to not notice that it's not your native tongue.
There was no offence intended, I just found it amusing.
Mine has amble cooling
Is that where the fan runs slow to keep the noise down?
Re: add 1000% TAX on all hardware and software from US (and UK) companies
Best rant I've read on here for a very long time. Thank you.
Re: No shit sherlock!
Out of interest, what would be the point of a UK Scouts database that DIDN'T hold records for all UK scouts?
You're asking the wrong question.
The correct one is:-
Why does there need to be a UK scout database that holds the records for all UK scouts.
Re: Wikipedia Leftist Bias
Is this a complaint about fox news not being on the list?
They're so reliable after all
Re: Nonsensical scaremongering
anyone who claims everything has been nice and stable up until 100 years ago is spouting utter bullshit and can be safely ignored.
I have no idea who's right about historical enviromental stability, but take the following:-
Pigs can fly, the earth is flat and 2+2=4. Now clearly the first two parts of that statement are bollocks but I'm sure most would agree the third is correct.
Therefore you can't assume that somebody can be safely ignored just because you know that some of what they say is rubbish.

Re: Not getting my vote...
Trouble is, the Greens have loony policies in so many other ways
They are in fact so looney that if you present people with a list of policies, without saying whose policies they are, ~27% would choose the green policy.
you can see if you've exposed to this here
Re: Talk Talk
Indeed. Can someone explain how they have any customers?
Re: new T&Cs...
Even put like that, I'm sure there would be a significant number who would be surprised to find out that the site could use their information in any way it liked.
Re: Static addresses
Plusnet give you the option of a static IP.
They seem like a pretty widely available consumer ISP to me.
And why would ISPs care about if people used VoIP more?
Re: So all that's required is that you set a password ?
No, you still have to show and to prove that an unknown MAC address used the wireless lan.
Prove that somebody didn't log into my network using my own laptops mac address .
After all, setting an adapters mac address is trivial and my mac is in the air.
Re: inetp govenrment
Maybe they're being clever.
It's worth more without strings and there's nothing to stop them adding them later.
You're probably right though
Re: There is no way to opt out of this short of deleting the application.
Am I missing something?
Does the following in a hosts file not opt out?
Banbury has rolled out a BYOD policy to standardise on handsets.
bring Buy your own device standardise anything?
