I have also felt the pain of a wet server room.
Went in to help one of the electritians wire in some new telephones. Noticed a pool of water underneath one of the server stacks. The worrying bit was when I mentioned it to said spark he just laughed and said it didn't surprise him with that building.
Though in the end we discovered it was due to a 1st level support chap who couldn't be bothered to take the computers for cleaning away from he building when he air blasted the dust out of them. Which also was where the intake for said air conditioning was. Dust blocked pipe which in turn lead to the overflow water just dripping onto the floor.
Samsungs batteries were originally replaceable. All the way up until the S5, then they followed Apples example.
I for one am saddened by this as if a phone is misbehaving it is a lot more satisfiying to remove the battery then it is to push a button.

That Ryan kid opening toys and playing with them. You have to think statistically speaking a percentage, no matter how small, are peodophiles.
So basically youtube and this kids parents are enabling peodo's to get their fix.
Won't someone think of the children!!
As long as something is offered for free then people get blinkered to anything else. Can't tell you the amount of times I have looked at horror at the permissions of apps some people have installed.
But I don't do facebook, twitter, uber or any of that things. Some family members look at me funny because of it. But personally I like the fact I have a very low online presence.
All websites/blogs/social media accounts with views/comments that specifically challenge or go against what the government is saying are creating a sense of fear within said officials, therefore one might say they are "terrorist content".
When all these "terrorists" are locked up Ruddy-Bottom will finally be able to speak in public once more without being sneered at.
Won't someone think of the poor politicians!
You see someone told him that he should go pump some iron.
And he even thought it was working in the beginning.. after all he was promised rock hard muscles.
If this ever became a reality then how long before you would have bandits taking to the skies to hunt down and rob/destroy these motherships?
Could make quite a good haul if you hit the one in the rich neighborhoods where they are stocked with lots of nice high end goods.
I recall not many years ago seeing an interview of Zuck where he said he invisioned that we would want to share and communicate with our fellow humans more and more as time goes on.... now he is telling us thats the rule for us lowly plebs, but if we want to communicate with him then we need to go through his metal bouncer. Nice.
For the record I am not on farcebook. Left it behind many years ago, and the odd occassion I see friends using it and whats actually on there I am very glad I did!
Or in the case of my son if you get one of those boxes with the handle flaps then Opening down, with child inside + nerf gun = tank
And to do that we would need to increase our crop manufacturing. Granted the land used by breeding livestock could in some cases be used to grow crops, but when you use the land for crops then you are killing off the little animals that live in those lands happily co-existing with the livestock. Mice, moles, insects, birds etc.... not to mention the fact that use of pesticides would have to increase( and who knows what sort of impact that could have on the environment), and as much as you may not like it, gmo's would likely also be on the rise to meet the growing demands (or just to increase yields and make it worth it for the farmers).
Next, onto the human factor. Think of all the industries that would go out of business overnight if you stopped using animal products. We would have to increase the use of plastic to fill the gap. Our oil use goes up, the price of oil becomes more expensive. Not to mention the fact that we increase the amount of plastic waste we generate.
Way to save the world!
"sever talking to"
You cut them as you are talking to them? With Blade servers presumably. I prefer the cat5-o-nine-tails myself, but hey whatever works.
However, having been gifted playmobile sets in the past for my spawn I can say one thing... I hope they don't lose any of the building pieces (the plastic bits in between the buildings that stick them together)
And... that must have cost a small fortune for all those separate kits ... no wonder Spain is not in good shape financially!
While I will grant you that there is still an ongoing debate about this, you will find that the reasons they tend to use Gassers are either because they are conscious of bush fires (their parks tend to have these instead of the charcoal kinds), or from a time aspect (ie, just want a quick meal, not having to go through the whole ceremony of the other kind of BBQ). Dan1980 is entitled to his opinion, however as a South African I can tell you that the gas BBQ is heresy in all the circles I run in and every Saffer I have ever met would never use a gas BBQ unless there was absolutely no other option available to them. Even an oven is preferable (a gas bbq is just an outside oven after all)
The only people I generally have met who use Gas systems are people who A. can't start a "proper" fire. (They are out there. Once watched someone try to start a fire for about an hour, and even tried cooking over the fire lighter itself, before eventually giving up and wheeling out the gas BBQ).
B. English people and Americans
C. People who have many kids and need a quick option for cooking or want something that even the wife could do
For me though, if you are going to do it, then do it right!
The only internet connected BBQ's that I could find online were gas BBQ's. And no self respecting Aussie would own one of these, let alone use it for cooking. Just doesn't taste the same as a good ol fashioned carbon-burning barbie.

My son can have a computer when he can build his own one. He can have his own gaming console when he can beat both me and mum at oldschool bomberman, or Mariokart ( which a track of my choice).
I have had to more than once stop the in law from buying him a Crapple device even though I hear the same protests every time "Oh, but it helped his cousin with their studies".
But even more than that, tablet/phablet skills are not what is used in proper business! Unless he is going to go straight in at management level of course. But I would call that a personal defeat if he did and didn't know at least how to handle a BOFH.
"I feel a drone Kickstarter project coming on."
Anti-drone drones. I like it. Take my money good sir and make it so! At the very least you would get a good tv show out of it. Drone wars.
Funny, the way I read it this was meant to be some big Islamic state sponsored cyber terrorism hack based out of Russia from the site of a missile factory.
Ok. I have turned upside down and ensured the feet are resting flat... but I still don't see how this will help me change the battery!
Before this is used by potential employers to screen candidates. And then one said candidate sues the company for discriminating?
Can we please stop wasting time discussing how the dinosaurs died out already and focus on the real matter of bringing them back to life already! I want my real Jurassic park!
Just think of the television show opportunities. Big BC brother where we see if the t-rex or the z list celebrities win the challenge and get to eat (the loser).
Or My big fat Cretaceous Wedding!
Argh! Stop making reference to it! It only makes it worse! I had a hard enough time getting it out of my head after watching the latest South Park episode. Although for the very fact Mr Garrison f**ks Donald trump to death, it was worth it.
SmartBra V.2 now comes with titty tasers that zap any males who stare at it for more than 3 seconds.
Prepared to be turned on! Just not the way most techies would like given the nature of the device.
Hardware that if it goes Tits up means it is working perfectly!
The line that made me chuckle was this
"But is it fair to selfishly deny a person sex? No. It is not, people have a right to have sex and if their spouses totally or somewhat-totally deny them that, they have every right to sleep with other people. "
So if I or my wife denied the other some nookie, if I or she felt that I was "selfishly denying" them sex, then that gave the other carte blanche to go play away?
Isn't times like those exactly what porn was made for anyway? Are these people saying that they are too good for porn?
All I took from this article really was that if you wanted to read the AM data then go find a torrent of it and download the whole thing yourself. Instead of being lazy and relying on someone else, out of the goodness of their own hearts and not for any malicious reasons honest guv, to put the data into a new UI for them.
Well it was paid for account. And the address on the card was one owned by his family, which they regularly showed on that poor excuse for a tv show. Ok, perhaps not a smoking gun... but enough to say that it was little more than likely that this was him... plus, given his track record...
I just find the whole thing rather amusing. And yes, I agree that if you signed up to this site then you had already commited the crime. B*tching about getting caught is just being childish. I realize however that without e-mail authentication it does make accurately pointing the finger at someone a bit tenuous at best.
However, it did make me laugh out loud to hear that Josh Duggar (of 19 and counting ... and other more scandalous fame) had a paid for account for Ashley Madison during the time of his marriage. So not only is he a hypocrite, anti-gay and a child molester but now he is potentially guilty of Adultery too.
This just gets better and better.
Arghhh.. we are too late.. they have already infiltrated our Android and Mac products! Damn you rooting/jailbreaking!!
Our only hope now is to use Ubuntu phones and Linux rigs to start the campaign..... wait a sec.... does that linux rig have a pre-2011 Intel chip?!?! WE ARE DOOMED I TELL YOU, DOOOOOOOMMED!!
A president who shoots bacon wrapped guns.
I am sure he will be a big hit with the Muslim voters
And I am sure the husbands excuse for not going out and doing something in the "real" world would be the same as any Mmorpg/Xbox/Online gamer. "But honey, I don't need to go out, I am actually playing/talking/interacting with REAL people all around the world!"
Here here! Have an upvote good Sir!
Fact is that offence can never be given, it can only ever be taken.
Sounds like the perfect food for Vegans/veggies. They can eat nothing but this stuff, which will then allow us to reduce the amount of vegetables we grow, thereby reducing carbon emissions from growing/transporting the stuff, also think of the water it would save, perfect for drought stricken areas.
Which would also give us meat eaters more room to be able to raise more piggies for bacon... sweet sweet bacon.
I was but a wee teen when I got this game on the PC. But I vividly remember the 2 player mode of this being played with me and a mate. And then on the schooldesk course, slamming him into the ruler. And on the off chance he didn't fall off I would stop and say "it's ok, I'll let you catch up" only to zoom away at the last second.
I think the closest I ever got to that same feeling was playing Mashed on the Xbox. But again, it was similar to Micro machines in that if you didn't know the course and what turns were coming up when, you were stuffed.
Would said data be removed from any data that was previously slurped by NSA/marketing companies or indeed facebook's own backups?
Can't imagine they would.
Many many moons ago I worked for a support desk that, up until they got bought up by a bigger company, had a very relaxed dress code. The clients didn't care that we dressed down and the fact we were largely phone based, and on the occasions we did have to go onsite had to often scramble under very dusty/dirty desks means we never wanted to wear any of our nice clothes.
Along comes corporate bigboys and brought in a non IT manager to manage us. I had many many meetings with said manager telling me to comply with the dress code before I finally gave in. Even then though it was only ever black trousers and collared shirt. I think I was the last holdout in said department.
The annoying bit for me was on the first day I gave in and wore black trousers the manager in question saw me coming in and gave me the "see, it wasn't so hard now was it" talk... which really irked me. I left shortly after.
Since then I just find it easier to wear trousers and collared shirts (since I brought the bloody things, I'll use them) , it seems to make higher ups listen to me a little more than my less well dressed colleagues. ... though as a small act of rebellion I never iron the shirts. Even still, I occasionally get comments from them about how well I dress.
Plus, nobody would ever guess if I went for an interview based off the way I dress. ;)
Never a tie though! Apart from the obvious noose reference those things are dangerous don't you know. Could get caught in a printer or fan or something.
Please don't give people an excuse to call selfie sticks part of their "security procedure"... because you know they will.
that he had a bit of a shit eating grin on his face
Make it so that if a person takes a picture of their dinner they have to pay an additional fee if they want to instagroan/farcebook it.
If someone appears in your picture you have uploaded they they have to pay you a royalty fee every time someone views it. "I'm sorry, I didn't agree to be in your photo, but if you are going to capture me on your holiday snap then you will need to pay for the privilege."
Hook it into facial recognition software and BOOM, photobombing becomes a legitimate career and maybe... just maybe, it could spell the end of peoples seemingly irresistible need to put every little moment of their life online to try get some of that attention that their parents never gave them.
I'll get me coat... it's the one with a college yearbook (the original facebook!) in the pocket
Arghh!! My eyes... my eyes... I dared... oh why did I dare.
Did you read those Sea kitten bedtime stories?? Wow... just wow.
So what about the tyres that ALL cars use and use animal products in them? Which most tyres do i beleive. Don't hear him kicking up a stink about those.
I hope that when he goes to his farmers market for his monthly imported bat guano run that he always takes his own Hemp, reclaimed and recycled bag, because if he has ever used plastic bags... that uses animal products.
I hope that if he has ever marveled at a fireworks display in his entire life that he feels shame as they use stearic acid (which can come from animals).
In theory he should boycott Andy Worhol as he used to use casein (milk byproduct) based paint in his earlier work.
I hope Mrs Peters does not paint her fingernails and looks down on all woman who use nail polish... because guess what. That uses fish scales!! Won't someone think of the poor defenseless fish!!!
I could go on, but I am sure some vegan will come and give me "good" reasons why all of those are not nearly as bad as me using a animal product like leather that will greatly outlive it's plastic counterpart, instead of putting the welfare of those poor, enslaved, brutalized........ tender...... tasty.....succulent... delicious.. *errr. sorry, drifted off there* animals above mine.
I'll go get me coat... the leather one 'natch!
Ha ha. I was being pedantic/funny as you said that when you last went the attitude was that of the 1960's... but that was in 2000, which would mean that the attitude of those people are now that of the 1970/80's.... geez, just because you don't put a Joke alert on your comment....
As for the other comments. I wasn't caring about those. I say go with whatever festival you like. Personally I am more of a Creamfields/SW4 kind of guy. The kind where apart from them patting you down at the entrance they don't really seem to care as they know that people are there to enjoy the music... and some getting absolutely off their tits.
Been to the 02 wireless festival as well, but that was more of a festival lite. But Damien Marley was playing that particular time, so it was groovy tunes.
Reading/Leeds is a good fest too. Though, the toilets on that last day is not something you want to think about.
I have a few friends who have gone to Glaston, though most of them went years ago. All of the stories involved mud, most involved said friends being rather drunken/raucous.
I think though whatever your festival preference we can all agree that paying to go to something where you become the product.... not cool.
Sorry, but ... with you going last in 2000 does that mean that the attitudes there are now what most of Britain was like in the 1970/80's? ;-)
Ha ha. I recall many moons ago doing an Server 2003 course and he was trying to show us something with regards to Volume shadow copying, and he couldn't get something to work quite as it was showing in the book, and so being a room full of techies we soon found a different way to do the same thing. He said that "Oh, I can't seem to get it working, but If you intend on taking the MS exam then just remember how it says to do it in the book as any other answer will be counted as wrong, regardless of the fact that other way will actually work. "
how 12 monkeys started?
-Remember your body is a temple.-
I couldn't agree more. We should never stop expanding our own limits! Some people say that 8 hours of sleep a night is enough.... I say why not 9... or 10. Strive for greatness!
Who lives on the plain where it does rain?
Who explains viruses to you and me?
Don't click that, don't browse there..
Don't download unknown files says the silly bear!
He's come to tell you what's right and wrong..
Seriously though, I can go to google, type in kickass proxy and find at least a handful of working, usable links. At what point do they step back, take a look at all the expense, time and effort it takes to block these sites, vs the cost of media delivery companies just giving people what they want, when they want it.
Iplayer and even 4oD allow you to download some programs to your device for offline viewing, I don't see why all tv cannot be like this for a nominal fee, something akin to ohh, I don't know, the tv license fee we all pay?
I'll get me coat, it's the one with that book written by Abbie Hoffman in the pocket.
