Re: Then you give these people a second referendum and claim it has significance
Just like the cry from most of the aggressive millenial Remain voters, you would have thought that most of the people involved in the "Troubles" (wonderful bit of British underplay) would have died off from old age by now. What sort of fuck wit do you need to be to try to reignite campaigns of terrorism for delights you were not even present in an embryonic state to experience? Ireland really needs to get over it.
Re: What the
" All i want is sex, without the relationship strings."
Either you are simply having sex with one person, and then leaving immediately after, again and again or you are more likely engaging with multiple people. This behaviour is inevitably going to increase your risk of contracting HIV compared to a monogamous interaction. My suggestion that a person exhibiting this type of behaviour might well be the use case for which the feature was add is perfectly valid, because if people on Grindr were looking for only a single person to be all and end all, it wouldn't be necessary.
Sounds to me that she
1) didn't have a clue what the going rate for her role should have been as she was being promoted / changing roles
2) wasn't struggling to get by on the salary she was being given
3) didn't look for monetary compensation for her work when it was being recognised by internal awards
4) doesn't want to work anywhere else ever again
At the end of the day any of these currencies represent nothing but electricity consumption and cpu cycles performing calculations that (as far as I have ever been able to ascertain) have no real world practical application. They aren't folding proteins for medical science, they aren't scanning the stars for SETI, they are just making big numbers. Why would that have any value?
Can anyone explain what value it adds aside from improving my employer's DUOS bill profits to electricity suppliers?
Re: Ready your bunker
The DNO I work for are very aware of the risks and have made excellent steps toward ensuring staff are not caught out by phishing. SCADA replacement and reinforcement is already an active event on our risk register. User access and critical system management, as well as disaster recovery and business continuity are addressed proactively.
I have stuck to one brand (Panasonic) for all of my equipment and the Viera Link function (presumably HDMI-CEC) works very well using my telly remote to control all devices... so long as you remember to set each device to have a different remote code. Finding the PVR turns itself off, the home theatre mutes and the TV changes input to FreeSat when all you want to do is open the Blu-ray drive is a real bugger!
Re: Didn't understand
Reduction in demand for housing, reduction of value of Sterling and overall reduction in price of housing was the exact reason I voted Leave. I do not own anything yet, and feel fine about the risk of screwing everyone that does - the only people who will have serious problems will the curse that is BTL landlords.
Re: Nice Theory - but
"Security is not the second most important thing. Safety, company survival, company profits and company growth are more important. Also in many companies, senior management convenience is counted as far more important than security."
You won't get much profit, growth or senior management convenience if you have a leak from the air conditioning in the electronically-locked Boardroom which fails, and kills everyone senior.
How to make a third party and keep the fanbois happy
Apple: Hi Corporate Drone 1.
Corporate Drone 1: Hi.
Apple: Hey Corporate Drone 1, take a look at this - it's a means to unlock the Apple 5s phone which we don't want people to know about, but the FBI would really like us to give to them.
Corporate Drone 1: Aw gee, I think I know wha...
AN UNMARKED CAR APPEARS.
Apple: Say Corporate Drone 1, here's a big cheque for your services. Please get in this car.
Corporate Drone 1: Please don't fire me, I real.....
Apple: You're fired.
Driver: Next stop, Washington DC!
Former Corporate Drone: Good morning Mr FBI.
Mr FBI: Good morning Third Party.
Apple: Curse that Third Party, we did ALL we could...
Re: 50 years ago...
I'm going to have a stab @ Arguing about the right of corporations to sample your kids DNA for utilisation in a designer baby genetic splicing lab via social media internet-connected testing devices built into the latest security measure in the Apple iSkin wearable, grafted communication device on the back of their hand, so that their particular shade of blue/brown eyes/hair/skin can be replicated in a cloning lab for transplant into an embryo unit to be surrogated into a 2nd world mother on the behalf of homosexual life partners who wish to have the perfect child, which has been granted by a tiny micro-print section of the latest Facebook EULA update.
Re: Personal parachute
Wait, let me get this straight: The large 'bag' of silk which inverted and opened directly above your head in deployment is the SAME 'bag' of silk which is mere fibres away from the rapidly opening and closing valve in your botty as BROWN TROUSERS TIME commences?
Talk about an incentive not to crash!
Re: Lack of violence
Millennials? They can go a wrap their skinny jeans around their necks for all I care, try the generation that's footing the bill for the NHS, Immigration and opyright extension. The generation that welcomed a fourth TV channel, wanted to be in the A-Team and currently makes up 70% of all private renters.
Re: Lack of violence
"The same thing happens today when many people choose not to have children - but use their resources to improve the lot of the next generations. What is passed on is not necessarily a family gene - but a community's cultural meme."
So you are saying there will be a natural antidote to Baby Boomers a few generations down the line? Thank God.
Re: Somebody went shopping at Argos and it wasn't me
Wait, are you saying that the last time you went to the Steam account page which bore your credit card number was in NOVEMBER?
That seems to be an AWFULLY long time for Steam to have cached your purchase page, for it to then be served to a random on 25th December. You sure you didn't buy any meals at a restaurant or allow your card out of your hand card since then?
