Re: Taunton to Bridgwater - Somerset Solar Walk
Not all that bad as in there is a lovely footpath, and many roads, leading out of the place.

Taunton isn't all that bad as between Taunton to Bridgwater alongside the canal there is a scale model of the Solar System that really enforces how empty the outer solar system is. Also, you can use phrases like "have we missed Uranus" and "Uranus is coming up".
I wonder how many of these are actually re-enactment weapons as I believe they require shotgun licenses. ( At least that was what one of them told me when he broke character at a bank holiday event.)
When you're use to properly designed BS 1363 plugs everything else just seems a bit Jury Rigged.
Not really. As in all statistics be careful as to what the data actually shows.
1. This is analytics from a company that is on 2.1% of all websites, but we don't how representative those sites are. They claim to report as they see if which gives a report that is only useful in telling you how many people visited their sites. Extrapolation beyond this subset is risky.
2. Adblockers are fairly common on Windows, and very rare on mobile platforms so their tracking codes will not get loaded and not be counted. ( I won't exist for one in their analytics.)
3. This shows percentages and not raw numbers. You can't tell the underlying trends. Did Windows rise, fall or stay the same?
pfft If they want a real test come to Bristol. The shear number of random traffic lights with random timings will give that system a real work out.
Actually it's not even for a terrorist group it's the Britain First YouTube channel as indicated by the Britain First logo and text at the bottom of the screen grab. So maybe Google have noticed a correlation between Britain First members and them flooding the Guardian comments pages with crap.
From a quick peak at the site via Remote Desktop to one of our US servers I can see a mixture of the latest Soaps ( no Corrie) and a selection of back catalogue material. In the comedy section the most up to date seems to be Gavin and Stacey ( probably to cash in on the success of Cordon) but the majority seems to be 80s and early 90s. (Boon, Keeping up Appearances, Fawlty Towers, Are you being served, Ab Fab etc..)
Basically just a grab bag of back catalogue material but nothing particularly up to date.
or if your language of choice has built in help (eg R) then you won't be hitting search engines as often reducing its popularity.
No, Rupert Murdoch has people to do that for him.
It sounds like the old Windows cruft idea that the installation of more and more apps that install more and more background processes that cause a gradual slowdown.
They are just a name on a piece of paper in a Motorola ( not the bit that was sold to Lenovo) filing cabinet now.
Why try and crack one key when you can have them all at once. Err, no thanks Microsoft but my secrets will remain firmly out of your cloud service.
Yes I could switch to somebody cheaper but then I probably wouldn't get the same quality of service or speed that I enjoy at the moment. it's not like Gas or 'lecy where you get the same product so switching to a cheaper provider makes sense. You certainly get what you pay for!
It wasn't hard to get the most popular petitions as well. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions?state=all The previous ban Trump petition got 500,000 so he's now over twice as "popular".
Fire up a VM and you can run them in the OS they were designed for. Windows 10 has Hyper-V built in.
We (briefly) used a component once from a long established player that was a .Net wrapper around a COM component which was a C++ wrapper around a C core. This house of cards was susceptible to any old minor change in DLLs that were not necessarily related.
That sounds exactly the the trouble I've had with them on behalf of my wife and her fitbit. We just gave up on the syncing altogether and its now just a watch cum step counter. She just guesses how her sleep is now the old fashioned way... by how she feels in the morning.
I got one installed as I thought that it might show whether or not I was generating or consuming electricity as we have solar panels on the roof. Nope, it still showed generation as the same as consumption so if the meter shows 500W I don't know if that is used or generated. Oh and when we switched suppliers it reverted back to being a normal dumb meter.
Don't do it even if the shiny shiny tech draws you in.
Which particles go faster than light?
If it were Photoshop'ed then the man in that photo has been added as well. The back of his head has the same white halo so my bet is that it is a compression artifact due to over-compression, especially when you look at his back.
The twist being once they have assembled their radio they find out that all they can get on their DAB receiver is bubbling mud.
I wouldn't necessarily take the list of people who didn't vote as a cast iron sign of their support or otherwise because there is an agreement called pairing. This is where if an MP on one side is absent then an opposition MP will step aside and not vote to balance things out. http://www.parliament.uk/site-information/glossary/pairing/
If you were doing internal testing you can just setup your own CA, install the CA cert on test machines and then issue signed certs with impunity. There is no need for a full blown intermediate CA. This is using a nuclear weapon to crack a nut.
I'm not convinced this is a good idea at a network level since there are a number of sites that refuse to show content unless you enable ads, Channel 4's site for one. So blocking at the network level, unless there is a user defined whitelist that is easy to manipulate at the browser level, is probably going to cause more headaches in the long term.
Hell no, that would put them under an hour from where I work. I'd be able to smell the bullshit from my office whenever the wind is blowing.
They seem to do a degree of caching. I just viewed my town, killed the app and then put the phone into airplane mode. The app moaned about not having a data connection but the maps I'd just viewed were available.
When I search for the same string I get a "full" set of results in Google ( about 501 results). I think Google just don't like you.
Sorry even though they have been running the show for the last decade at least they have been gracious not to shove their toxic BT brand in my face.
I've actually had good experiences shopping with Dabs but as a brand I've had nothing but pain with BT so I shan't be be shopping at the BT Shop. Bye bye and thanks for all the fish.
I've been happily using f.lux for a few years now. The transition from day to night modes is so subtle that you only realise that it's occurred when you disable it and your retinas are suddenly burnt out. I really don't know how I managed before with it.
Didn't Gabe Newell come out with the same doom laden prediction when Windows 8 came out? How did that prediction go then? Did steam, Origin and Gog die under the relentless onslaught of the Windows 8 and Windows 10 App Stores?
The BBC just quoted the Detective in charge who made that comparison with coach loads of terrorists.
and this is why I haven't gone anywhere near my bank's mobile banking app and stuck to the seperate security key. To be honest I don't need an app to tell me I don't have enough money anyway!
I'm assuming that they must create a hidden folder as part of the installation process and in the cleanup process they grab the directory listing, filter it for the relevant temp folder and then pass it as a list through to a generic cleanup routine that thankfully is just popping off the first folder in the list.
My assumption is that the filter routine is broken so we should be thankful that the CC installer doesn't delete the entire hard drive. Perhaps Adobe's QA team might have spotted that one.
The iPlayer has an HTML5 version http://www.bbc.co.uk/html5 it's not perfect but it is a vision of a flash free world.
They haven't got Apple's retail numbers because this is ONLINE sales only which they calculated by using a panel which has their online activity tracked, including their ecommerce activity. They claim their panel covers the top 100 online mass retailers.
Basically YouGov for shopping.
People do this anyway it's called using the TV guide and changing the channel. At least in this brave new world I will have wall to wall Only Connect with even the mention of the existence of Strictly Come Dancing being a taboo.
Azure goes down a lot less than in-house Directory services I've seen in the past with much much shorter times to recovery. The downside is that you don't get the sense that anybody is working on the problem though constantly calling the IT team for a status update tends to get things fixed much slower.
Well since Windows 7 doesn't come with the necessary runtime subsystems what do you expect to do on Windows 7 bar build the project? You can't run it or test it. (I'm actually surprised that you can run any Universal app on Windows 8/8.1 since they changed the runtime from 8/8.1 to 10.)
If you really wanted to stay on Windows 7 then you just need the Pro Edition and grab a disposable Windows 10 VM.
You can pick them up at Dabs. They seem to be doing 64GB at the unconsumer price of around 375. The 16 and 32s are there buried amongst the kits, though yet again at very unconsumer prices.
Not really. From the article he looks like a serial Vice President hopping from business to business staying just long enough for it not to be too suspicious when he leaves.
An online bail bond company set up at almost the same address as our personal domain but with an s. ( We were here first!) About once a month we get people emailing copies of every single piece of personal information to our info@ address when applying for their custom bonds. If we were malicious we really could steal their identity with no problems at all.
It's absolute rubbish. It gives you barely any more information that my old 10 quid clamp meter from B&Q did. They still don't understand generation so all values are positive and the only way you can tell if you are generating versus somebody in the house has left a heater on is to switch the kettle on ( a known power drain) and see what values the meter comes up with.
Oh you can get the gas and electricity readings on one box, whoopsie do!
New sponsored caution?
"You do not have to say anything, but it may harm your defence if you do not book a great low cost flight from Easyjet to a destination of your choice with prices starting from just 10 pounds book online at Easyjet.com..."
How naive of me to think that this was security for the user's benefit. The company's MO is in content protection and anti-tampering which is just security for Apple and the content it sells..
Apparently there is a BT Mobile which is an MVNO running on top of EE.
I a couple of years ago I was in the queue for the bank and I overheard a distraught customer revealing how she had be scammed into giving the rest of her bank account details. A scammer called her up and for security reasons they gave her the (standard) prefix of her card number and got her to reveal the rest to confirm her identity,
With this data a scammer could easily modify it by giving the first and last digits and getting the customer to reveal the middle digits. As the first 4 digits are card and bank specific they can easily cycle through the card numbers pretending to be the relevant bank that the card is attached to.
Er, no they haven't. The Windows Phone 10 camera is the same as the Lumia Camera.
Nope, I just happen to have to deal with Copyright crap on a regular basis and are acutely aware of the fees and paperwork involved when getting into the business licensing of copyrighted material for multiple territories.
Frankly I really don't care about this at all, I just thought I'd give a more rational explanation to one of the factors behind this decision rather than OMG I'M LOOSING MY DOKTA WHO! THE BBC IS TAH SUK!!!!!!
You couldn't have any programs with any form of art, anything with music in it and certainly no photography. ( Heck even the Daleks have to be licensed from Terry Nation's estate) QI has a big problem as the photos behind them are stock photos and they didn't have worldwide or DVDs rights for the stock photos. ( http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tv/news/a577767/why-isnt-qi-shown-in-america-alan-davies-tells-all.html#~prBC4hdcluB0T2 )
Without paying for licensing fees for photography then this is what you get: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/07/01/bbc_snap_update/
