"My existence is supported by the things around me, even when they're no longer of any practical use"
Demijohns of your own urine in the attic to, huh?
Just Do It. √
Feels great once you break your compulsive hoarding disorder.
Icon says it all.
"You do realise Scotland is part of the UK? For now at least."
You do know you can get great single malt from a variety of sources outside the UK, right?
Grab a bottle of Yamazaki 12 Year Old.
Is that what you get when you play about with goulies?
Telling MIUI not to battery optimise apps is fairly straight forward.
And if it's still not your cup of tea then there are now the Android One version phones. (I don't like 'em, but can see why people would.)
"Hang on... I think I've come up against a snag. "
"singing badly to Nine Inch Nails”
Oh the humanity! I'd pay not to see that.
"As a foreign speaker of English ... "
Is it particularly difficult fir Americans?
"every woman in high heels"
So are men in highheels silent?

Are 14 year olds allowed to post on here?
Love Japan's phone etiquette in public spaces.
However Android One's Do Not Disturb feature, in conjunction with Outlook and Skype-for-Business' penchant for turning it on can be annoying in of itself.
"I tried calling you but you didn't answer...."
Was a better concept. Just needed a smaller handset.
Xperia Mini Pro FTW !!!
I'm not really getting on with my current "Bloatware Free" Mi A2 Lite. (Android One sucks.)
I should have gone for the MIUI Redmi6 Pro version.
I actually like MIUI and its features.
... was a Danone yoghurt?
Yes, more of a works canteen company than anything else.
Always a depressing lunchtime when you end up eating at a Sodexo joint.
>With one exception - coffee in France is horrible unless it's from Starbucks...
You're obviously drinking your coffee with the wrong hand. Or you've confused France with England.
England: Were towns are full of "cafes" all serving stool samples.
"Corr! This coffee smells like shit!” ...
(And watch out for labcoat wearers and their "coffee"...)
... anything could dent your <<glaouis en platine>> Mr Dabbs.
... because you used to pick on her son Melvyn?
I wonder why?
Why are SpaceX running a mission to land on Voyager 1?
Not taking a phone from my network means I get €20 a month off my tariff. Getting DSL from my mobile provider reduces it by another €10 a month. All-you-can-eat voice,texting and data even when roaming.
Who doesn't do this? Ah people stuck in the backwater that is the UK. :-(
Pffft. A minor annoyance.
Try dealing with Asian Hornets.
codejunky> Tim has done a proper analysis of this to which Amazon is paying more tax regardless of the teeth gnashers protests-
As you seem to be on 1st name terms with Mr Worstall, could you ask him about why the IEA employed fashion graduate Darren Grimes and why, when Mr Grimes was fined £20K, for illegally funnelling £675,000 from Vote.Leave to Aggregate IQ through his BeLeave campaign, Mr Worstall then instigated a whip round to pay the fine? (Also probably against UK electoral rules.)
Hello Mrs Maxwell.
You must be really proud of your son.
I hope all is well?
codejunky> Did I say that? I call Gremany's invitation to the middle east a terrible mistake and I call the EU accepting it as their problem as a self inflicted migration crisis.
If you actually just used that type of language I wouldn't have a problem with you.
But you don't do you? More like, "Merkel invited the entire Middle East to come in. BoogahWoogah!!!!! Scary!!!! OMG!"
codejunky>But I am talking about some remainers who fear the foreigners outside the EU borders. The fear of the US, China, EU, Russia
Utter bollocks. And hilarious given your propensity for spreading dramatic, "Dusky Hordes!" type propaganda.
codejunky>So its ok if they are supporting your 'side'?
Show me the xenophobic remoaners. Or I'm calling, "FAKE NEWS!"
Are your pants on fire? AGAIN?
Or are you trying some of your Russian twitter troll skillz and sophistry by saying that because the EU doesn't grant freedom of movement to everyone on the planet it's RACIST!!!!!!
Enough already. Go make a success of Brexit. In 50 years' time (by ReeSmogg's timescale) maybe it'll be unicorns and rainbows. Who cares. I certainly won't. And if it turns out to be the total clusterfvck I think it'll be, then you can always blame the EU like Jeremy Hunt has just started doing. Masterful.
codejunky> I can understand that. The hysteria against foreigners from both leave and remain bother me.
Utter Bollox. Don't try and use the Trumpism of " there's bad folk on both sides!" to justify rampant xenophobia and pandering to xenophobes. Jaysus.
codejunky> I do find mild annoyance when someone accuses me of being a Russian as an insult
Stop posting in the style a Russian Twitter troll then?
codejunky> and yet through all your continued trolling and strong focus on foreigners ...
You can't be a racist. You told us you have non-white friends, right?
(As opposed to the Leave.EU leadership, who I get the feeling really don't like dusky folk.)
But as the immigrant son of an immigrant I just take umbrage with the brexit campaigns whipping up of hysteria against immigrants. Something you took part in. Specifically that doozy of a trumpcard about Turkish hordes that came out the week before the vote.
Still, I guess neither of us will be around to reap your rewards of brexit. (It'll take 50 years, apparently. LOLZ)
Enjoy your brexit.
Doctor Syntax> Dunno but I do get pissed off with this neo-this, neo-that stuff.
Yes, Matrix fanbois are annoying.
codejunky> I keep having remain idiots telling me the reason I voted out is because I am against foreigners and one troll who insists I must be racist because he has nothing else to contribute.
Aww codejunky! No one has called you a racist.
I just say that you played the xenophobia card throughout your posts during and after the brexit campaign.
Just because you use xenophobia and like to whip up hysteria propagating fake stories concerning Turkish hordes about to assail England's green and pleasant lands, doesn't make you a racist, old chap.
You got your wish granted by the brexit pixies. Now go forth and make a success of brexit!
You have all the answers, so show us Project: Unicorns & Rainbows!!!!
...my biometric passport will no longer work."
They aren't that clever. You'd still be able to fly.
They believe in homeopathy in France.
>While it would work in Japan
Platform info works great on the Japanese Tourist Board app and the Navitime app it's based on. So no problems there.
The sooner Apple delete the mic & earpiece from their phone designs and force everyone to use a headset the better.
Or the death penalty is introduced for sodcasting or talking on speakerphone in public.
And it's not just the young. Old people have taken to viewing videos in groups at cafes and bars in France AT FULL VOLUME now too.
>Well, if we rolled back our wasteful foreign aid programme
How then would the government funnel subsidies to British Aerospace etc ... ?
>There's something known as priorities and Wifi access should be somewhere near the bottom when it comes to railways.
Maybe the UK shouldn't have sold them off to the lowest bidder then?
They work great elsewhere. And have free WiFi too. Fancy that!
Personally I use (free) global roaming on my mobile tariff when travelling. Or a local data SIM in the 2nd slot. But I doubt that works too well in the UK either? Like I said: backwater.
In the good old days phones had external antenna connectors. Very useful in cars when passing through weak signal areas.
The last one I saw was a Samsung Galaxy S4. But you had to cut a hole in the back over to access it.
> I'd prefer the train companies sort out their useless timetables and performance issues rather than waste time and money setting up infrastructure so some morons can talk bollocks on whatsapp
But they won't even do that will they.
And with that attitude, the UK is always destined to be an IT, technology and infrastructure backwater.
>Or I could just look at that thing on my left wrist.
Wow an Apple Watch user!
Just use honorbuy. Global versions shipped from Italy. I've purchased 4 Xiaomi phones from them (Redmi 3 Pro, Redmi 4X (X2) & MiMax 2) for self various people. Never a problem.
By George, I think he's got it!
