UK mobile number porting creaks: Arcane system shows its age

kain preacher

I know that this might not be perfect but in the US we doing multi ported number differently. If I port a a number from att to T-mobile. ATT and T mobile work it out. IfI then port the number to sprint it goes back to ATT. Then ATT and sprint work it out. The number will always be ATT. If for some reason I stop paying my sprint bill and do not port the number out, the number will go back to ATT.

Re: Quite a European Description

UM it's either US route , US Highway or interstate. Never heard of US interstate. And this would be interstate 4 or I-4 but other than that I've never hear of the term Motor way used in the US or Canada for that matter.

Re: Grooming habits... or lack thereof...

I had a co worker of mine puked after having to do a call out on a PC that lived a one room 300 sqft apartment the owners pair a pair of chain smokers. HE described it as yellow tar crap on the windows. He refused to do service on it. My boss thought the issue would be solved by sending a smoker out there. Nope Imagine a pair of fat sweat bastards that think hygiene is a four letter word . My co worker complained that it to a week to get the smell out of his car.

My favorite hell desk ticket. PC fan makes noise when people bump the desk. Just for shits and giggles I walked over and bump the desk. Her response was you have to hit the desk harder. Any harder and I would of hurt my self as this was a solid oak desk. This left me wondering what kind of animals were hitting her desk.

Re: ID 10 T alert

Psst. In the US you need not be a citizen for the Constitution to apply to you . If yu area green card holder but not a citizen you have all the rights of citizen except for voting in federal elections. green card holders can buy guns in the US. When we still had the draft green card holders could be drafted.

Re: Will it really make any differece?

ATT in the US is going to fiber for one simple reason completion. With copper they have to allow other companies to come in and use their facilities and open up adsl to other companies. By going to all fiber they do not have to allow completion . This locks you in so your only choice is ATT Google(if they are in your area.) and the local cable company. Also fiber band with makes it easier for them to do cable TV.

I went with ATT fiber because they have no data caps if you have direct tv. ( yes there is a data cap on my plan in theory but wevery one I talked to says its waived if you have TV through ATT. So far I've not hit any data cap I'v used as much as 6 gigs in a month before.

Re: It will retail for just $35,000

Um check out the price of the mustang in the UK Vs the US. 2.3 eco boost is 20,337.05GBP in the US and in the UK £33,645 Even with taxes and fees that still a big difference.

Most companies seem to do $1 = £1 when pricing things for the UK. Some may add an extra margin for giggles. I'm looking at you Nvidia.

If they did that in my example the mustang would still be cheaper as it $26,195

Re: right! own up!

Are you sure that was not regular copper ? Regular fiber is much easier to splice. I remember when they were doing a BART extension they hit a bundle of 500 pair copper lines from pac bell. The contractor and BART had to pay. Pac bell handed out free cell phones till it was fixed.

Re: Don't Speak for Me

There are still places Were you can be fired or killed for be part of the LGBT. I personal know of of trans person that came to a box on their drive. It had fagot tranny on it. They called the police. The police did not like how it looked. Call out bomb squad. Yes the box exploded Never made the news. Never found out who did it . This was in Sacramento. IF you have ever been to Sacramento and the Lavender district. you see a large LGBT night live out there and I've also felt safer there then in SF and its more friendly, And know this was only about 5 years. SO yes there is still a reason for pride in the US.

Re: Recall ?

And in the third corner class action lawyers lining up to say hey we will look out for you the little guy. I have a funny feeling that intel is going to help some attorneys fund their 2nd or 3nd house and swimming pool full of cash. And that's just on this side of the pond. No telling what the EU might do. I do believe the phrase not fit for purpose comes to mind.

Re: Ryzen works if you have a recent kernel

from, I've read any from ubuntu version 16.10 and older has issues with ryzen. That includes Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS. With the last two version of ubuntu I've had issues on AMD chips. I'm still having issues with the latest version of ubuntu on my Ryzen system. It does not all ways boot into it and when it goes to sleep it does not wake up. So I don't know why that AC was down voted.
