Surely to have paid out on a fraudulent ticket there had to be a fraudulent claim?
Has the claimant been prosecuted?
Welsh Ambulance Services National Health Service Trust?
Why on earth should they have the right to look at anybodies browsing history (let alone mine...)?
What's the justification? Do the Welsh ambulance services national health service trust need to check to make sure their customers haven't caught a computer virus?
An elderly scientist said it's possible you would be crushed by the pressure if you tried to accelerate to near light speed because space is not a perfect vacuum.
Is that the equivalent to saying it's impossible to travel at light speed?
Won't someone PLEASE think of the children!?
However, they did seem to cause a Barbara Streisand effect by initiating the confrontation in the manner they chose. Would it not be better to have been a bit more discreet?
Very good, I see what you did there :)
Not young, not old, therefore middle.
The answer to all your questions is "How long is a piece of string?"
I expect I'll regret asking, but was it the chimp or the tortoise that was unfortunate?
It did occur to me that inter-species sex is probably not called bestiality when it doesn't involve a human, I was just being Daily Mail type lazy (not being a proper journalist and also being lazy) and I figured it would be understood and forgiven.
I should remember where I'm posting.
I look at this sort of thing and think about people who say "it's not natural" when describing something like homosexuality.
Behaviour in the natural world are not always things that are acceptable in human society, gang rape, paedophilia, necrophilia, bestiality, the list goes on.
Then there's the marketing of products as "natural" as if it's a good thing, I think to myself deadly nightshade, that's entirely natural, why don't you go and garnish your salad with that?
What is it that sets human civilisation apart from the natural world? It's those unnatural behaviours and unnatural things. There aren't really many though, you look hard enough and you'll probably find similar behaviour in nature anyway. The best ones I keep coming back to are glasses and books, you don't find things like that outside human civilisation.
One of the best routers if you got the right version, flash it with third party firmware it can act as a network bridge and all sorts of other cool functions.
It's a bit of a troll article to be honest eulogising apple when compared to cheap tat pre-built machines.
On a website where most of the readership will build their own kit and will be perfectly aware that you get what you pay for and some manufacturers provide better components than others.
There are also exceptions to every rule. Sometimes you get unlucky, sometimes you get lucky.
If we want to go down the route of Apple vs. Microsoft vs. A.N. Other then it entirely depends on your own abilities and tolerances.
I am not a fan of Apple because their environment is a walled garden, I can't break it in the way that I want to break it, I'm not a fan of Microsoft for similar reasons, things that I want control over are hidden in the depths of things which you can't get at without breaking something else.
I want to be allowed to at least be able to see how something is working in order to break it in a way that suits me, I want root.

There are a lot of parallels between private and public IT projects, awards for failure, pretending things didn't happen etc.
The main difference I have found is that usually in private IT the buck stops with someone, usually the person nominally in charge. In govt projects (local or central, I've done both) the buck goes to committee to be passed around endlessly.
I doubt that's a bug, that's going to be a data error, a value missing from a database.
It's going to be a fall back to a default value, not the programmers fault, this one's the fault of the beancounters.
"we can spend all weekend fixing it without causing significant damage to the company processes"
You've been sucked in there.
Changes are made when people are around to notice them and people (you) are getting paid to fix them, why the hell would you spend your free time doing the corporates a favour? You can be damned sure they won't do you any.
I'm guessing that the one's who know someone who has been robbed at gunpoint are the ones holding the guns....
Deal with the euro transaction issue by getting a Metro bank account.
It uses the mastercard exchange rates and doesn't charge a foreign transaction fee for european transactions, it has saved me money on foreign holidays and importing from europe.
It won't speed up or discount delivery though, but I am very comfortable in going to foreign websites using google translate to turn them into something almost readable and buying things from them.
Give it a try, it'll feel just like someone else is doing it.
Are gathering wankstats not the primary function of the device then?
+1 for the sarcasm
-1 for just annoying the damned hell out of me
AAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH so conflicted!
guffpulse for word of the year
I'm not sure what to expect from that website....
I'm amazed they managed to do that with a pair of canine carcasses.
I guess it must be technical wizardry like the kind used in doctor who & cinderella (tardis & pumpkin coach respectively)
I must have watched that movie about 20 times when I was young, repeatedly borrowing it from the video store down the road.
I thought I was the only person in the world who had watched it and thought it was fantastic.
Don't beat yourself up about it, there are worse things to get paid for.
I used to work in sales. I'm so sorry, I need to go wash my soul now...
excellent, that means I can sell my vote numerous times, TYVM
I don't understand your logic.
"Probably about as well as your phone does."
You could even go as far as to say
EXACTLY as well as your phone does.
Ah you have a problem you see, it's built using a coding language that's already got bugs in it.
I expect he's a well paid asshole...
To be honest they'd probably spend a lot of it on drinking and partying, I know I would have.
I'm not entirely sure whether or not that's actually a better deal for the taxpayer, I don't think there's that much in it.
Surely that's Peter Mandelson
You're not buying what they want you to buy!
Nope, I'm way too far down the chain to do that, it's only the people near the top who are allowed to do that sort of thing.
Bizarrely when our office found that their old laptops couldn't easily be upgraded to Windows 7 from XP started issuing new laptops, which have slower CPU's less memory and no DVD/CD reader let alone writer in them, that might be okay if they also provided everyone with a means to transfer information.
Working within a department that deals with govt. data means we need a secure means of transferring data between systems, this has always meant CD's or DVD's which are shredded after use.
The alternative is encrypted USB memory sticks, however these are small in capacity, relatively slow and apparently non-existent as far as the IT ordering system goes.
I lucked out by virtue of getting a fairly new laptop in the right gap between upgrades which meant that it came with windows 7 installed and was actually better than the old one, including coming with a DVDRW drive.
When I say lucky it comes with the downside of a queue of people holding blank CD's...
I often have the same suspicions when these things happen, that it's all backhanders and deals made on the golf course.
More often than that it's just blind incompetence from what I can gather.
It happens so much in govt contracts I think it has to be.
Yes, it's not the first time. I've seen it before, they want to pay for an off the shelf solution, but they want it to do things that the off the shelf solution doesn't do, and then they don't want to pay for development, they want that to be paid for by the solution provider (at risk), and then they still want to keep the IP.
Optimistic, I was thinking "If" instead of "When".
What sort of tossing is that? The SFW kind or the NSFW kind?
I'm afraid I get a bit confounded by daily mail rhetoric.
How come the response was not -
"Fuck you it's parody, and fair use"
In the taskbar the heading is truncated to
as a prefix,
gateway, gatecrasher, gatehouse, gatepost, gatekeeper (I am the gatekeeper, you are the keymaster)
Ha! I scoff at your request.
Oh, that's absolutely brilliant! That even gives them an "avenue" to accidentally "slurp" more data.
They can collect vast amounts of "DNA".
Get my patent lawyers on the phone.
