2 incidents remain in mind, both so closely parked I had to squeeze in
1, I parked in a carpark in a retail park, very few cars, came back 2 in car park, mine and a van parked so close I had trouble getting in my car. yet it was almost empty!
2. Parked in a space, came back to 6" gap to car next to me, my passenger door next to a lamp post. I had to dent their door to get to my door to open it, then open window, then lean in to get handbrake off, push car put of spot then get in it. They had dents from my bum and my door and if they had come back their face would have been next.
I should really have called the Police but I was in a hurry.
Actually he is odd according to my boys, he is not picked on.
And it is funny.
Take too long to use, too bossy, get on my nerves.
I prefer a manned till and a polite and friendly person to scan them.
First rule of supermarkets. Always be polite to till staff.
A boy in one of my teenage twins classes is a fan of those, He even knows the names.
Seen bigger Motorolas
A LOT bigger
Our home PC
Quad core, lots of RAM, BD burner, 2TB of HDD, rebuilt from a P4 during Vista so uses XP Pro of course and MS Office 2003 (The last file edit one).
Now I just cannot get on with ribbon menus so that tops out MS Office at 2003. The PC is pretty fast, it does what I need, I still run a couple of MS Dos programmes, which won't run on anything newer.
In our office we have to keep two XP machines around for things we cannot do on anything newer.
if MS did not remove features some of us would go to a newer version.
The Illusive Man is a Blackberry fan.
Also a huge mistake by MS.
Bungie are a top level developer and if a publisher had any sense would buy them.
At last PS owners can play one of their games on their own console.
Firstly got Mint on a P4 and the NVidia graphics crash on TF2.
Not sure where to look for drivers, how to install them, this is the first Linux PC I have had dealings with.
Secondly what is the best way to learn Linux, as an example what is Linux CD, DIR, NET USE, DEL, RD, MD ect?
OK currently our software is a WIN32 application with a client server ISAM database, but how longer will we be able to sell WIN32 systems when everything else is coming along. All are part of the XBASE family.
So where do we go?
We will need to be able to go SQL despite it not being as quick at certain tasks as our current database engine, I would be happy to keep it as it is on all 3 server platforms, and does have an SQL mode.
The language is a minority database handling language, but pretty good to use, but very few people use it.
We are considering .NET, there is precompiler for the language we use which works with C, and the server work with .NET, still even have ISAM. This would possibly be the lowest risk, easiest move for us.
However there is an antipathy toward MS now which is making us wonder. Win 8 is generally hated, and we are hearing thoughts of MACs and Linux from our customers. Also some people would like to use Android tablets.
So what other options are there?
I have over 25 years as a developer. Happy with object oriented programming, database access, prefer to be able to strict type, hate bossy IDEs.
Some C, a little C++, lots of Clipper, lots of VO, quite a bit of Alaska Xbase++, some VB (I hate VB6 - evil).
I would be happy to go to a more main stream environment, as long at the IDE did not make me want to kill its designer.
I have not even thought about a web environtment yet either.
Had this with pre USB Nokias, they would not charge, even ended up having to have a new battery. it was terrible, often it would not charge and I would need to swap batteries with a collegue.
It took a year to find the issue.
I never leave chargers on, I always plug in appliance then turn on at the wall, as I have done since I first used a charger.
Nolia phones did not like that. Went against everything I have ever done with chargers, if the charger was not on when inserted they were ignored.
The amount of times you hear people moan, I play a PS3 FPS regularly
"They have rapid fire" - actually I know that the gun they accused will not work with rapid fire controllers. The real cause is lag, and running peer to peer.
This game is bad enough with 2 official controllers supported, one lot moan about the other, as a fan of the better controller I said just learn it.
Touch pad = DS4
One a PC I think I will stick to KBM and in the living room to a console
I just end up on a few channels, I like News 24, and other BBC channels, Dave ect
How many Tiger Tokens?
Our local station disappeared as well!
Local radio travel news.
Any travel news when in the car.
I used to listen to Tommy Vance. RIP
I transferred about 30 LPs to MD, it was that or buy a new HiFi cassette deck.
I like Minidisc!
Sticking with FM ot works
Oh and no one does a DAB head unit with built in MD player with CD changer control.
Did they pet it?
Having an Ebay account I don't dare go there
Predators tend to use 2 colour systems, prey tend to monochrome, we are unusual for mammals with 3 colour vision.
Birds win the vision race
Also what exactly is a onesy?
Is it a childs pyjamas or romper suit
Buy back the 4G space for digital TV in the form of extra HD channels
Use rest to bribe government to introduce the death sentence for marketing people who insist TV channels have on screen logos.
Even bloody shITV does it now, and I already watch anything on C4 is SD rather than suffer the HD logo.
Actually I am thinking of trying the OS on the quad core and making it dual boot, But next purchase is PS4.
We are allowed multiple game devices.
I am going to comment on this.
Ok we have a number of consoles including a current generation one. We have 3 PCs. I see a game we want on Steam.
Main PC is a quad core with reasonable graphics and a Steam account
Child PC is a wound up P4 dual boot Steam on Windows, still trying to get TF2 working on Mint
Laptop is dual core, owner will not let Steam near it as they are not PC literate.
Said game requires lots of graphic card ram. Possible to run lower resolution, so Laptop out
Requires DX, dual boot P4 Mint boot removed
Requires latest DX other boot removed, main PC removed (XP - need XP for full screen DOS applications)
Check other stores, not on PSN
So 3 PCs, 2 capable of gaming, none can run a quite simple game. Whereas both proper PCs can handle the HL2 engine fine, Portal, Portal 2, Half Life 2, Team Fortress 2 all run brilliantly. Mass Effect runs fine on the quad core.
Game creators not interested, MS paid for exclusivity on consoles.
But what happens next?
Similar game released free as part of PS+ that will do.
There is a reason so many people still use XP
Again if I wanted to word process I would use a laptop.
Not interested in TIKFAM as such.
MSs USP with a tablet SHOULD be WIN32, of not why bother.
Too many OS too confusing.
TBH in this market an XP or Win 7 laptop would be better for ME.
If it is a tablet. I would go where the apps are.
I cannot run windows executables.
Otherwise may as well use Android or IOS
They will like this
At least I know now how they spell available.
Not available until October AFAIR
I don't like games where I play as a baddie, yet I like war based games, if it attacks me I will shoot it, but robbing banks ect, just doesn't seem fun.
Yes I did enjoy Dishono(u)red more in stealth mode, and I went through in hard only taking out baddies and the assassins.
So playing as a bank robbing criminal, sorry just doesn't work for me.
BTW My game of the year is The Last Of Us, and to be honest Joel is not nice, but the writing is just superb.
Can't he have SOME time off?
Charged not convicted.
Very embarrasing for the chap concerned, should we make it worse for him?
Oh and did the sheep enjoy it?
Someone who have never actually dealt with them.
Techie gets out of Uni, gets first job low wages in support team. If they get decent they move to a higher paid place, from there they may go self employed.
The really good Indian techies work in Europe and US, or run companies in India and pay decent wages.
The poor ones stay in the low pay jobs.
I have dealings with a self employed programmer and he is pretty good.
How both are rubbery and inedible
I know to avoid E120, carmine and cochineal
Who wants to eat cactus beetles!
But then I will be going to Game on the 29th on November, but I will not be queueing!
He has knocked a LOT more than 10% offthe value of Nokia
I replaced my Sunbeam with a Carlton (needed a big saloon), that went OK for its size.
1200kg is why, lighter than the then current hatches, 1500kg for a hatch some were, ridiculous.
So a light saloon with medium sized engine could hassle a lates 90s warm overweight hatch, despite looking like it should be slower.
The 205GTi worked as it weighed the same as a packet of crisps.
I drove one once. I used to deliver cars for a Vauxhall dealer
The torque steer was horrendous.
Yes it was quick in a straightish line (torque steer), but too powerful for the chassis. Same engine in the Cavalier or Carlton was much more controllable, and top end the Carlton was quicker, (aerodynamic)
I prefered the similar accelerating 3.0 Senator.
It put me off FWD for life!
Were no match for my Sunbeam
Is Killzone Mercenary..
A decent FPS for the Vita at last
That was a very silly thing to do, it was ready months ago.
It would have sold more realeasing it then.
Are you sure it is not Pitt?
Students - they had either a hifi or a motorcycle AFAIR
