Especially the narrower bit. Picked up 2 A8s for people here and they're much more usable.
"Feds bust shady people doing shady things on shady sites" - Quite right too; that's the government's job!

Gents/Ladies. Loo. Bathroom. Bog. Khazi. Jakes. Toilet. But "restroom"? You gone Septic on us, Mr. Dabbs?

If someone had "accidentally" powered off that system it might not have been a bad thing, under the circumstances...
That's a SUPERB idea!
Went to Porthcurno a few years ago and it was a great day out. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed it (although Mrs Nichomach and I had a thoroughly uncharitable giggle at her reaction to a rotary dial telephone - *stabs numbers with fingers* "It's not WOOOOOORKING!").
...having happened on this report just now, 6Music's just started playing "(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thing". Not only is it obviously live, they're using it take the mick...
I'm there right now. Attempting to explain to a web filter support guy that the point is not to *block* an appliance from talking to its replication target but to *allow* it and that the slow throughput at said webfilter is what's getting in the way.
It's just too bloody accurate.
...is seriously HUGE. Any chance of calming them down a bit? It does kind of take over the page a bit.
The Dell Axim X51v PDA that will definitely come in handy one day.
The USB to USB network adapter for migrating machines that never worked properly but we might need sometime.
More software boxes than I can count for versions that are more than a decade out of date.
Retired laptops that absolutely cannot be wiped and shoved into the recycling "just in case I need something from it".
Old digital cameras with comically low resolutions (I've got one that takes smartmedia cards, FFS, what was I thinking?).
Bluetooth keyboards that aside from their initial pairing have never, ever been connected to the phones/tablets/whatevers that I was definitely going to use them with.
The first step is acknowledging that I have a problem...
No, it really wouldn't, at least not by anyone whose idea of "romance" wouldn't get them a part in a slasher movie.
I'm not going to say "work of genius", but I thought it was pretty good; truer to the book, excellent performances.
On the basis that my experience of "deploy and then fix" has been "We've given your issue to the developers, who are in <time zone Y>, and we'll hear back from them the day after tomorrow", I'm not liking the chances of those magnificent men in their allegedly flying machines...
No, defence companies. I think that when push comes to shove defence workers would be treated as disposably as any others.
"AHA, BY BELLISSIMA!!!"
I concur; I had two lower end Lumias, a 620 and a 735. They were excellent in use, with a really good UI, excellent battery life, rugged enough and cheap. The only reason I've gone over to an Android handset is the paucity of the app ecosystem around Windows Phone, and in some respects I still miss it. Don't get me wrong, I get on fine with my OnePlus, but I do sometimes miss the WP experience.
It should always be back bacon (dry cured). Sausages should be pork, with a high meat content; I second (or maybe hundred) Cumberland as a good option. Mushrooms should be incinerated and tossed in a bin. Beans are fine, and I don't mind either fried or scrambled eggs. A fried slice would be a good idea (white bread, NOT any brown, mealy crap), although I have a predilection for hashbrowns as well. I have a mild horror of cooked tomatoes (especially the tinned monstrosities). Black pudding isn't my favourite thing, but I probably won't throw it away if it turns up. Sauce-wise - worcestershire. Tea - builder's, and supermarket own brand is fine.
Yeah, but no. I've attempted to circulate an uninstall for at least one of the affected patches via WSUS, and it never completes, just keeps prompting the user every...damn...restart. The June patches have been an epic clusterfuck, not just with regard to attachment handling, they've also broken indexing, killing search in Outlook, which is a pretty big deal. My users are not happy campers, and there has been no effective response from MS.
"Though the British public sector keeps bunging Microsoft ever larger sums of cash to keep up extended XP support"
Wasn't part of our recent problem due to the fact our glorious, strong and stable leader elected not to keep paying for support and patches for XP?
On the 737s are you thinking of the uncommanded rudder hard-overs?
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.

...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!
