Our Rayburn uses wod & works superbly well, heating water by convection.
So if the Russians cut off the gas & theres a power cut, it continues to heat the house, water & cook.
Now have a choice

Well, Apple have crapped all over them, the types that stuck with Apple have been shunned into a corner with aps like Aperture discontinued & something resembling a fancy trash can to replace the much loved Mac Pro.
Will they come back?
Microsoft have sunk lower than spammers & malware writers & deserve a red hot poker up their arses, see how they like 'new ways to do familiar things'

Dont you just love those SQL server fuck ups disguised as "we're sorry for the inconveience, but we've had to log you off" No Sir! just click the back button & youre right where you left off.

Then theres the drop downs to enter the words from your phrase, which is only 7 characters long so theres limited scope there. It should only work using a mouse pointer, but nay you can just press the relevant keys for the friendly keylogger to send back to your friendly hacker.
The theres the telephone thing when you set up a recipient for a payment, which has a rather serious flaw and should also be obvious to Lloyds.

Absolutely hilarious, so good I had to see it twice.
Seems unfair to comapre BTO to Muppets to me.
Small moustache - check
Her transformation to 'Full Stasi' is now complete.

Just what took them so long to work this out?

That means I can install any hard disc I like,
It means I can install 32Gb of ram

dongles are a pain in the arse, look un-professional & break
Thunderbolt/Lightening what ever you want to call it is completely irrelevent because Im never going to have such a device.
Years ago, muppet managers used to fire people that introduced viruses on floppy discs, ye reap what ye sow.
Cant email servers detect & remove such malicious scripts

The vote on June 23rd was an opinion poll that has to be voted on by parliment.
