1. There were no cabbages.
2. If there were cabbages, they were not eaten.
3. If they were eaten, they were not eaten by a goat.
4. If they were eaten by a goat, they were not eaten by MY goat.
5. If they WERE eaten by my goat, my goat was insane.
Peter F. Hamilton - Night's Dawn Trilogy. I'd love to see them bring Voidhawks to the screen.
"smells like roses to me..."
...I don't see any difference between this company and the fake "Microsoft Support" guy who talks your Nan into downloading ransomware onto their PC.
Ah, yes - it's the fault of the people that *didn't* pander to and snuggle up to the Tories, rather than those that did... Idiot.
And the Tories would never have got in *at all* except for the Lib Dems enabling them. Plus they did *nothing* to block things like the no-longer creeping privatisation of the NHS - they just nodded through the Health & Social Care Act. Sorry, but they chose to throw in their lot with a bunch of vicious, corrupt, callous scumbags. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Uvllh4bQbc
There is already legislation which would be perfectly satisfactory for prosecuting the perpetrators of that sort of harassment. I have a teenage daughter myself, and were she subjected to that, my first call would be to the police. As noted, one can also block numbers easily enough. Kneejerk demands for magic code that reads minds are stupid enough in business, but stupider and much more dangerous in government.
The Lib-Dems speak sense until someone gives them a sniff of actual power, at which point they throw sense out of the window and fall into line with whoever's wafting it their way - witness the government we have now, which they are *directly* responsible for. Pointless bunch of oxygen thieves.
Does the "care pack" also include a helmet, life jacket, fire extinguisher and "make your own will" kit? 'Cause that might be an idea...
Also Crackle! and Pop! ?
We've been using them for a few years, and I'd say ours is pretty good.
IIRC, the P39 was supplied in large numbers to the Rusians, who far from disliking it actually did a huge amount of damage to the Luftwaffe. Maybe it just suited their operational style better.
"Airworthiness Note: F35/September 2016
Electronic Flight Manual no longer to be supplied on Note 7."
I have been with VM since they were Blueyonder, and they went through a very disappointing patch, customer service-wise. Recently, however, we have had speed upgrades with kit delivered when they said they would (not always a given under the previous dispensation), and when they wanted to turn off support for the old V+ boxes, they shipped us a TiVo for free (which again arrived when they said it would). When I've had occasion to contact support recently, they've been much sharper and on the ball. I'm sorry that some (maybe many) of VM's staff are having such a torrid time of it, but from an end user point of view, my experience has significantly improved.
Actor-wise, can we see if the guy who used to do Gerry Adams in a silly high-pitched squeak for the Beeb is still available? Let's see how those keynotes sound then...
He was great in The Night Manager (still hoping for a second series), and he's fun as Loki (the Hulk throwing him around like a dishrag followed by the *Uuuuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnhhh...." in Assemble is still one of my favourite bits), but he's not Bond.
...the insert disk on a windows phone handset, which occasioned a little head scratching; that said, that was one out of a couple of hundred handsets. Gave the department a giggle though.
On the TSA side, there's almost an unintended canary effect, since every time my other half travels over the pond, the TSA don't bother using their keys, they just destroy the lock, so if your luggage makes it through with the lock intact, it's almost a racing certainty that it has been opened, but by a nefarious (or more nefarious than the TSA) party...
They WOULD say that, wouldn't they...
Your idea of "cute" indicates an urgent need for an alienist!
...WANT 10 times as much crapware?
...with Papercut, and they work fine. Scan to email, SMB, prints follow you around etc. Thoroughly popular system.
*covers check engine light with tape* - "There you go - fixed it!"
Next to the soap in the shower.
...but the upgrade crapped out, initially leaving my machine unbootable and taking quite a lot of work to put it right. It's still nagging me though.
"Hey Froot Loops - you're up!"
Exchange 2003 -2010; Dell PERC H800 started freezing. Very uncomfortable.
...they're not confidential records any more, are they?
"Those kinds of musicians are often the most interesting" - THIS. One of my favourite albums was and is "Drunk With Passion" by The Golden Palominos , who were largely a studio only project, but able to call on artists like Richard Thompson, Bob Mould and Michael Stipe to fantastic effect, in no small part due to the fact that it was a studio-only deal, and they didn't have to take it on tour. Yes, live performance is great, but if that were the only way to finance making music, albums like that would never be made and we'd all be the poorer for it.
IME, it's frequently the case that if it involves technology or has wires in it, other departments are keen to offload it onto IT.
Yes, it's kind of the Blair Effect - "Look, you're right, yes, but PLEASE don't be on my side anymore..."

I'm on GiffGaff, so O2-by-stealth, and 4G pops up a lot for me too.
Altho never thtarting a land war in Athia or going in aagainst a Thithilian when death ith on the line? (Icon for Dread Pirate, obvs.)
That presumes the ICO would exercise them, which they wouldn't. These are the incompetent lackadaisical fucknuggets that did precisely *nothing* about Phorm, remember.
...Colin Baker as the worst, but that's largely story/script-related. McCoy had some good moments, but I concur with the general view regarding Scrappy Doo...sorry...Ace. Awful idea for a character.
Because his incarnation was incorporated into the continuity, but Cushing's performance was always a standalone?
...it sounds as though Meetups procedures are really, really shoddy.
1. It should be perfectly possible to separate payments from organizational control, so someone could renew on behalf of the Group without being handed control over it; and conversely
2. Where a group has organizers, being quicker on the draw with a credit card shouldn't allow the payer to displace them.
3. The "let's notify the whole group that control's up for grabs to anyone quick with a Visa" model of renewal notification sounds utterly nonsensical.
Certainly, on the basis of this report, it's a service that I wouldn't trust.
I'd have replied to that, but the plugin crashed, sooo....
Our Lumias are very popular, the *only* complaint being "I can't run <android app> on it, otherwise I'd buy one". Anything that removes that hurdle is going to make WP more popular.
As a phone OS, WP is flipping awesome and frankly, any carping about it generally comes from people who've never used it in anger; I've used Symbian, various flavours of Android, Windows Mobile even, and my current Lumia knocks any of 'em (and any fruit-based phone I've seen) into a cocked hat. The *only* flaw is the relative paucity of applications, but anything I want to do, I've found an app for or the functionality is baked in.
My first smartphone was an HTC Touch Dual (still have it somewhere) but honestly, even with a UI makeover from HTC it was nowhere near as usable as a WP device. At the moment I love my Lumia 735 to bits, and I hope that MS *haven't* chucked out everything I like about it in order to turn it into a clone of the Android that I moved away from.
Honestly, I really don't get this - for the vast majority of stuff that I want to do, either the functionality's built-in or there *is* an app. Games, I mostly don't care about on my phone, but I'm genuinely curious as toi what you want to do for which support isn't available.
"What that group did is illegal and writing about it would be against the law."
Yeah...that law probably doesn't say what you think it does...
...to believe that Adobe take Flash's security as seriously as they do its stability.
