But it is not a fucking disease!!
This person isn't being paid because she has a phobia. She is being paid because 'Wifi makes her sick.'
Not equivalent to your examples at all.
I have a phobia. I know its irrational and am not trying to convince the world that its a 'real thing' because that would be fucking dumb.
Crucially I do not expect the state to fund me because of my irrational phobia.
Why the fuck would the French pay her anything for something that can so easily be proved to be all in her mind? Stop fucking coddling these attention-seeking tools!
Social Media posts they could probably get away with. It's fairly public anyway.
Canvassing info, no way. If they didn't get you to sign a disclaimer on the doorstep that they might use the info to disqualify you from future influence in the Labour Party or some-such then its a clear DPA breach.
Also, Harriett Harmen specifically mentioned at the start of the campaign that it would enable former members and voters who have drifted to other parties to have some say in the future direction of the party and come back. I'll try to dig the tweet out where she is quoted. She only changed her tune once Corbyn looked like he had a possibility of victory.
Are they curbing ROCs too?
It's like the misunderstanding that could occur if I was reading a news article out to the wife and it sounded to her like:
"I see the Republican party is receiving large funds from the cock brothers again."
Granted, Gaelic was dominant at one time but that was about a thousand years ago. Anglo-Saxon and Norman influences dominated the populous lowlands thereafter.
(Who's downvoting the AC by the way. It's a discussion, the questions aren't simple and the answers aren't black and white.)
To be fair Scottish Gaelic was never the only language in Scotland. Scots was also a major language, coming from the same Germanic root as English but NOT being English. Scottish-English is English with a Scottish Accent, Scots is a Scottish language.
Gaelic is actually an Irish language, more imported than Scots. Before either of those a language from the Brittonic family of Celtic languages (rather than the Gaelic family) was probably dominant.
You got a link to a guide at all? :)
Sounds plausible but if I delete the app and re-download won't he lose all his progress in the game?
(I realise this depends how they implement saves but afaik save to cloud is pretty rare still. After all I didn't create login credentials for anything except Angry Birds Star Wars II.)
The first-gen Moto G 16GB wasn't rare at all. I bought a few for family members (using their Tesco Clubcard points)
Before I'd consider an Android phone:
I haven't had an Android for a while now but my son's Hudl 2 tablet doesn't make good use of SD Cards at all. When I filled up its 16GB with games I bought a 32GB SD and went through the Apps section in Settings pressing 'Move to SD Card.'
However it only moved about 10% of each game over to the SD Card and the rest stayed on the device.
Bugger all use.
Is this a normal Android behaviour or is it Tesco-specific?
In which case I suggest more fibre.
Mine are like an otter off the bank.
But I'd rather take my kids to Sellafield.
Is your Personal Computer some kind of Hadoop Cluster?
The abortion limit is 24 weeks in the UK and with good reason. Many abnormalities are only detected at the 20-week scan stage and are not apparent before then. These could mean that the foetus has no chance of survival and may endanger the life of the mother.
Almost all abortions after 20 weeks fall into categories like this. Women don't suddenly decide they don't want a baby half-way in (or if they do they'd get counselling.) The idea that the 24 week limit is there for women who haven't got round to having an abortion yet because they were too busy partying in Ibiza to be bothered is the sort of thing anti-abortion groups would like you to think.
...but then again, who does.
To paraphrase Gaff.
As the brain has been created from cells in the Soma rather then the Germ-line then it will have the equivalent genetic damage of a person of the age of the cell donor. It's already aged.
Let's not have Intel and Rambus giving each other RIMM jobs again at the expense of the consumer!
That would be Zebra then.
Rather than Google, or Lenovo.
Any ideas if your $4.95 applies to more than 1 machine?
To be honest I hadn't bothered with ABP for a few years but I've put it on everything now.
It has the bonus of making The Daily Mash site actually readable rather than flicking around all over the place as the ads load. Also the ubiquitous Clickbait links are gone. Why did I ever stop using it?
No effect if blatted with Linux?
Therein lies the problem that even the most conservative fascists can't confront. What's good for the goose is good for the gander and it would kill those businesses overnight if attempted.
The UI is a confusing mess and a total faff to use compared to Spotify. Why on earth they thought that mashing up iTunes libraries with a streaming service would give a great experience is beyond me.
However, if I can get used to it in the next couple of months and the library is on a par with Spotify I will probably still swap for the above reason. £15 for a family of four is cheaper than Spotify who would charge me £25 for the privilege.
I just wish they'd realise the error of their ways and release an app free from the iTunes bollox.
Best. Comment. Ever.
My lad is 7. Sometimes I have to go downstairs to make the dinner or something. It's re-assuring that his computer is locked to pretty much Minecraft.
The essential elements that caused these countries to become rich are rule of law and enforcement of contract. Without those investment is too risky to bother with, it's better just to farm the masses for small bits of wealth while they remain dirt poor in those circumstances.
Rule of law has to be enforced against the rulers as well as the masses. Hence the reforms of the Glorious Revolution, more so than Magna Carta, kicking off the beginnings of British dominance in the world in wealth and power. Other countries which still allowed their rulers and elites to welch on deals if they felt like it couldn't muster the investment Britain could.
Rule of law and enforcement of contract generally require a reasonably powerful state to enforce them. Wasteful shit will build around it once wealth starts to grow as noted but that doesn't mean all state-spending is such.
Heard on Radio 4 the other day that he'd even launched a Trump fragrance.
Is that a question?
Giffgaff is pretty good for data and signal round me. The call quality is never the best but adequate.
On the other hand Giffgaff is pretty useless at the in-laws. The signal is great and shows no sign of weakness, calls are fine too, but the '3G' connection seems unable to process data at more than GPRS speeds.
I was looking for a new second phone since giving my Moto G to the wife but I'm mightily bored with Android :/
Stands for Controller Area Network, not Car Area Network :)
It's used in Lorries and Aeroplanes, not just cars.
Is still a thing.
Is that a euphemism?
Vehicles use the CAN Bus or variations of. Its behaviour is that a client on the bus broadcasts to all other clients on the bus, providing the bus is currently free or only a lower priority broadcast is underway. Its up to other clients to look at the message and decide if they want to do anything with it.
To be honest it's a great design for the scenarios it was intended for. However, integrating it with the public internet provides some very specific design challenges that perhaps it isn't best suited for. All devices on the bus are trusted by default. Anything on a public network should be untrusted by default.
I had, and loved, an ST. Nowt wrong with the Amiga though. Just couldn't afford both and my friends had STs.
I don't understand how the two are related? The smut-filter is an on-off thing for 'adult content.' How could it help catch nonces?
Don't put me on the same side in any debate as George Galloway. It makes me feel unclean :(
Given the amount of effect this law currently has on behaviour...
But I was the UK's Lib Dem voter, not a Tory one.
OK. Relatively speaking.
Just had to factory reset and restore from backup for a second time as mine lost connection to the iPhone again.
(I got the cheap one to see what it was like.)
How would an exploit on installation instructions be able to get into your POS network?
It should be on a separate VLAN and firewalled to allow nothing in it doesn't expect or that it hasn't just requested. Who would open a PDF or Word document on the POS VLAN?
Like, what the fuck?
...why they want to repeal the Human Rights Act.
Kind of similar to the Amendment To Be song in The Simpsons. They needed to amend the constitution so that they could pass 'all sorts of crazy laws.'
Cthulhu lies dreaming in R'Lyeh which is on Earth, not Yuggoth.
You may be thinking of Cxaxukluth.
systemd'oh! DNS lib underscore bug bites everyone's favorite init tool, blanks Netflix
