Re: Is he even capable of a full sentence?
Because when he doesn't invite them, even the non-"fake-news" media types start boycotting him, and it looks bad when even Fox are pointing out you're trying to silence the press.

Sounds to me like Boeing are being given the chance to "decide" they should have another test flight rather than being told to. NASA have been very public about their thoughts on how serious the incidents on the test flight were, it doesn't, to me at least, look like they are trying to either brush their concerns under the carpet or push Boeing towards just giving it a go with crew.
Whether the Boeing management have the guts to go "we need to have another go at the test flight" or not is the bigger question. It's clear with the scale of the problems that they're going to have to do it, it's just whether they're pushed by someone else or jump first.
It honestly wouldn't surprise me if SCC weren't trying to reduce CO2 levels to try and meet the air quality requirements without realising they're not part of the measurement.
It certainly wouldn't be the most stupid thing they've done in recent years.
"a £2bn scheme to improve and maintain the city's highway infrastructure" and cut all the healthy trees down
Well, until they get stopped by the courts and the council have to backtrack rather than revealing the terms of the contract they have with Amey. Besides, cutting trees down does wonders to CO2 figures.
The IEC C13, used by nearly every PC and kettle on the planet, will be banned in favour of the new britoplug, which will be the same, but with imperial dimensions that don't quite fit existing sockets.
And it shall be known as the British Universal Technology Plug, or BUTP for short.
That said the McD's kiosks are some of the worst in the business, the screens are terrible and dont respond, then again thats why you usually dont see screens bigger than 18", but they have 32" panels
You should try the KFC / Burger King equivalents, at least McD's have tried to make theirs usable, the others have a horrible mess of UI and an excruciatingly slow process to be fought through.
Still, it reduces my likelihood of wanting to go in any of those places, so every cloud and all that.
Try installing the Microsoft Keyboard Layout editor from Microsoft. Doesn't work with ANY version of .net available from MS downloads, unless it's hidden somewhere.
Apparently uses version 2.0.50727.9148 on my machine, and looking at the release date should work with any of the .NET 2.0 releases. Installed and ran without any problems.
I'm still not sure about their claims that we're having to cut all the trees down to allow us to get a 5G signal because the leaves will block the signal, but simultaneously they'll pass through a human body and cook it from the inside. Surely you can't have a signal so weak that half a mm of leaf will stop it dead, but so powerful that it can pass through bone, skin and fat and still cause damage to cells deep inside the body.
It was funny last summer though watching a climate change activist argue with a 5G-is-bad activist about why nobody should worry about each other's concern.
When the issue (and removal of the hat) was posted it was attached to a user with a number of projects on his account, and a regular posting history. Looked like a legit user to me*, although with the vs code project having to be locked down for 24 hours to let people calm down, I'm not surprised he's ended up having to delete his account.
* Doesn't discount the possibility his account was hacked
The controls in question were deprecated 14 years ago. They haven't been available in the toolbox for nearly that long. Furthermore, a new version of .NET Core isn't going to mean you have to refactor your 13 year old software, it will carry on working as it did before.
From the linked blog post:
These controls were replaced with more powerful controls in .NET Framework 2.0, back in 2005. They have not been available by default in the Visual Studio Designer Toolbox for many years. As a result, we decided to remove these controls and focus only on the new ones.
More likely they're completely separate processes, but when receiving a Windows "desktop has been locked" message, they're not checking whether there's more than one desktop and it's actually their desktop that's affected. It would explain why *any* lock command locks all the sessions, and *any* unlock command unlocks them all.
To be honest, I'm surprised that they haven't simply responded "that since only 5%* of our users use the product in shared situations like this, we're going to leave it like this", like they do with many of their other features that get removed under the auspices of "User Interface Clean Up".
(* number made up since I have no idea what it actually is, but it's going to be under what seems to be the magic number of 15% which seems to be their threshold for not removing / fixing)
Once got shouted at by a police officer for jay walking in Sydney. One police officer for about 10,000 people leaving Darling Harbour after an event, needless to say his increasingly shrill pronouncements that we were breaking the law went ignored. I don't think the queue of people could even fit on the pavements if they tried.
I'm starting to think the word was invented purely for this scenario...
It's that ridiculous now, we've even got the government that afraid of scrutiny they'd rather give Eurotunnel £33m than actually discuss whether or not they should have planned a bit further in advance than December for a no-deal situation.
Wasn't there some sort of protection against being prosecuted if there was clear evidence that the law you "broke" was invented *after* you committed your crime?
Yeah, it's called "not carrying on committing the crime". Tricky to comply with I know, especially when you're only given a couple of years warning it's going to become illegal.
He already has - we just up sticks and deny we're members any more, ignoring any responsibilities we had as part of that membership and chanting Jerusalem back at anyone who disagrees.
It's only the remainers who are so blinkered by experts and laws and international bodies such that they can't see the unicorns, who think there might be any negative consequences of such a departure. If they'd only believe a little more strongly then the fairy's might liv, erm, actually, isn't that a children's book?
You've obviously missed all the usual suspects recently changing their lines from "we'll be better off out of the EU" to "nobody said we'd be better off financially". Not even the arch-brexiteers think average Joe is going to have a better bank balance as a result of this debacle (them, on the other hand, are going to see a nice big payday - and not fall foul of the new EU financial regulations that come in 2019 - strange that...).
'#' has numerous "names" in different contexts. It's use as "sharp" in C# is purely whimsical, not due to any domain accuracy. As such, C-Octothorpe or C-Gate or C-Hash or C-Pound are equally valid whimsy (just not MS compatible whimsy).
That's all very nice, but '♯' only has one name in any context, and that's the symbol that is used in the official name. It's only for typing convenience that it's referred to as C#. From Wikipedia (go there for the citations)...
Due to technical limitations of display (standard fonts, browsers, etc.) and the fact that the sharp symbol is not present on most keyboard layouts, the number sign was chosen to approximate the sharp symbol in the written name of the programming language. This convention is reflected in the ECMA-334 C# Language Specification. However, when it is practical to do so (for example, in advertising or in box art), Microsoft uses the intended musical symbol.
So there's three of you who think that DJs use audio out from an iPhone instead of balanced output from a FireWire/Thunderbolt soundcard? Okaaaay
And here's another, except in my case I've worked with world class DJs and plugged up the 3.5mm jack to phono cable into the mixer for them. Besides, using a balanced out when going into an unbalanced input on a DJ mixer is a bit pointless dontyathink?
On it's way - the recent Winter Olympics had one event per day shot in 8K. And with 8K most of the standards were agreed years ago, so the roll out will be nothing as bad as for 4K (which was a 'standard' created by display manufacturers needing a new feature to sell more sets, and they all had a different idea about what 4K meant and how it would be delivered).
Q1 > We will have access to the civilian level service, as we do GPS / GLONASS. We won't have control of that system, or the military grade high-resolution service.
Q2 > The overall project is being run by the ESA, but is being funded and managed by the EU. The security aspect of the whole project is controlled by the EU.
Q3 > Other third party states are involved in the project, but they don't have access to the secure aspects of the system and are not eligible to bid for work on those aspects. Once we are a third state, we will be able to bid for work on the same terms.
All of these issues are the exact same as we face with GPS - we can use the public system and we can bid for work that the US don't consider to be a security risk. The secure stuff, nope, that's for them to keep to themselves. If it wasn't for the whole Brexit malarkey, nobody would even bat an eyelid at these restrictions as the same thing happens all the time, all over the world. Chuck Brexit in to the mix and suddenly we have to blame someone for being unfair.
Reminds me of the last actual fire when I've been working. Member of staff ended up with a disciplinary for ignoring the fire policy (evacuate the building (>500 drunk students), call the fire brigade, go and run through the signing in book in the car park while the building burns) when they decided to pick the rubbish bin up and take it less than 5m to a fire exit leading directly outside.
You can get fibre speeds in some parts of Sheffield - I got mine switched on around 3 years ago! And from where I'm sitting, I can see the train station...
I know. There are houses about 50m away from my home (where there's insufficient demand) that have had it for several years. The difference? I'm inside the ring road, they're not.
Use your phone to replace a desktop PC ... limited to crappy little "apps" the Windows store, and no serious software anywhere in sight.
But call it "DeX" and everybody's wetting themselves over how amazing it's going to be. Soon. Well, at some point.
