You mean, "Use cut."
You mean the retrieved "chad" bit from hole-punching a self-adhesive address label?
codejunk> "Not exactly reliable people."
Ah, the ENEMIES of the PEOPLE? The ones who are not fully paid-up member of Codejunky's Crazy Brexit Propaganda Club?
Alternative FACTS! Keep 'em flowing' codejunky. They are so amusing.
Just be careful logging off it you are experiencing ring trouble.
At least The Daily Mail got one of its wet-dream front pages today.
Was IS this so difficult for music providers to build this into their bloody platforms?
Was good for "swapping" computer games too. Apparently.
"Talking down Britain."
"Brexit means brexit."
"We're taking back control."
[Feel free to add any other empty platitude that are just a metaphor of the brexit plan.]
Maybe there's a career in professional internet searching, 'cause I've never had a problem finding things. Apart from in the 90s when there wasn't actually much of anything to find on the WWW.
Now, where did I put my keys ... ?
Designer glasses are (pretty much) all made in one factory in Italy, so easy to investigate?
And they pretty much have a lifetime guarantee. (In France you can get "free" glasses every 2 years under mutual health cover schemes so maybe they are built to last days?.)
I think it's all down to abuse.
Having two vacuum cleaners failing within a year? Hmmmmm...
Catch the girlfriend vacuuming the bare, slightly damp concrete floor of the garage because "It's quicker than sweeping up the dust. I've always done it this way. What's the problem?" A real lightbulb moment.
Sky beamed into the UK illegally for many years without a licence and the Dirty Digger was never done for his illegal cross-media subsidising either.
Good to see all his machinations come to nought.
End of Empire for his spawn. Boo hoo.
The Dirty Digger got advanced warning and decided to throw his toys out the pram by binning his non-news side of the business?
>What other pseudo-science do they use there? Graphology? Lay Lines? Crystals? Dowsers? Tea-leave readers? Trump?
If you leave out phrenology you need your head examined.
So your defence is, "What about the Clinton campaign?!?" ?
There is an alternative to hoarding that gives its own pleasure:
Chucking stuff in skips.
Make sure to apply for your déchetterie card in France, Mr Dabbs. You can even weigh the stuff you are binning. And your car.
Damn MSMedia. With their "theories" about the Earth not being flat and circling the sun!
Is that a euphemism? Something about perpetual movement wrist action?
Ah... no... Wrong bus. My bad. Sorry.
Have convinced 3 others to switch as well. ~€150 for a rich-feature smartphone shipped from Europe with the fully-supported "global" version of MIUI. What's not to like?
Do SpecSavers do a retinal laser scan & Ocular tonometry?
Have to agree ophthalmologist waiting lists seem to have ballooned. Especially when you compare to MRIs, X-rays etc that you can get in a matter of a few days in most cases.
"Speaking to French television station BFM (video here in French), Le Maire said Chinese investment is welcomed, but not if it “plunders” French technology."
He didn't say that. At least not in the cited clip.
>Let's wait and see...
Probably THE worst advice to heed in this situation.
Quoting Mr Worstall's (you suck up) opinion doesn't make your bendy banana myth any less mythic.
I'm surprised you've not used the "EU bans barmaid CLEAVAGE!" one too.
Brexit it happening. The barefaced lying did it's job. You can stand down now.
Even The Soar-Away SUN has held its hand up to all the years of bollocks they printed:
Sorry again Phil, maybe we are talking at cross purposes.
I was talking about working outside of your country of residence. You are quite correct that you normally don't need anything more than a standard vistor's visa (or visa waiver in the US) for business trips: Meeting, training, pre-sales. Maybe even a bit of light on-site support.
However if you want to work you need a visa in most cases. If you work without obtaining a visa you open yourself up to a whole world of possible bad consequences. If you don't believe me, try telling the immigration officer in the US that you are coming "to work" next time you visit the US.
If you've prevously been illegally working without getting caught, then that's fine. I hope you haven't got too strong views on illegal immigrants working in the UK. (Because I hear it's no fun, being an illegal alien?)
My take is that uk.gov are not looking at these issues because they just don't care. The number of people affected probably won't be that many. And most no longer have the right to vote anyway!
Those it does affect just have to suck it up and take the licks life deals. Personally I think it's the right time to look at working outside of the EU if you're a Brit who up until now has enjoyed working in multiple EU countries. If you have to get visas, might as well go all out and try the US or elsewhere.
Either that or "Go Back To Where You Came From!" ;-)
Sorry Phil, you are wrong. e.g. Working in France without a work permit or visa (a la non-EU citizens) will result in a visit by the inspecteur du travail accompanied by the gendarmerie.
I know of at least 1 high tech French company who tried it on with Indian engineers who were over on business visas but actually working on a live project "for a few weeks."
After a snap inspection (Literally, "Show me your papers!") the Indians got thrown out and the company was fined.
That is the future for Brits and that is perfectly understandable. It's what the UK voted for.
Just because the UK doesn't do things properly, doesn't mean other EU countries don't.
>You claim to have globally transportable skills so why wont the EU want someone skilled?
Oh do keep up codejunky: Brexit is occuring!
Brits are losing their right to work across the EU. uk.gov is only negotiating for British citizens to be able to live and work in their EU country of residence. Not elsewhere in the EU.
Thus if you have a job that entails work across Europe you will need to obtain work permits for each country. (In my case that'd be: Spain, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Belgium and Holland. Not sure about Ireland.)
No one will bother employing Brits in these roles after brexit.
>How curvy is a banana? Or cucumber?(did they retract that one for being too pedantic?). Or what can be called jam? Or apparently the size of a drink in a pub?
At the lying and myth propagation again codejunky?
I do wonder what you'll have to lie about after the UK leaves the EU.
Maybe you can blame it all on the Turks again, hey?
>And don't forget the BLUE passport cover.
Blue passport covers are sooooo yesterday's brexit news.
The latest demand is that the little crown be put back on pint glasses. Those little crowns are an important emblem of brexit and a defining feature of British Sovereignty™®
For scanning receipts for expenses.
Otherwise it's looking good.
Just so long as they remember that the Psion's major advantage was, "Software. Software. Software."
>I should just throw my 5S in the bin
Here in France you take old/broken electrical goods back to the place you bought them (or the municipal dump) for correct disposal. ;-)
I thought the British public had had enough of un-elected bureaucrats imposing their will upon the population...?

"Between the high price of the machine, the typically high price of mobile data in the UK."
Unlimited mobile data for reasonable tariff is the norm in many countries now.
I'm just surprised this has taken so long for everyone to get their acts together to produce such products.
>Yes, in France it's a tradition to not work. That's why the few French high-tech companies in existence do it outside of France.
UK productivity: Express elevator: going DOWN!
Let's all just be thankful these lunatic researchers aren't giving robotic limbs to squirrels.
Because then we'd all be in a whole other world of hurt.
The evil bastids.
Ahhh. A match made in heaven.
Just string overhead HT cables and take the electricity from them.
Physically link multiple "trucks" for greater efficiency.
Maybe later they can lay some steel guide rails to obtain greater speeds, safety and efficiency.

"Ah, so airbrush the inconvenient past, Soviet style?"
Says the man using whataboutery!
So your, "I used whataboutism to catch you all out" was Fake News? Sad.
I'm not pulling you up on use of language, political-non-correctness, or any other red-herring you want to throw around.
I'm pulling you up on your use of whataboutism.
"I snuck that 'what about' in there just to see who would jump at it first. ;-/"
Did you? Or are you trying to make light of being called out for being a whatabouter? Hmmm.
"Clearly Trump's heavy twitting is making ambiguity waves, but what about Obama? "
Looks like you've got a severe case of the whatabouts.
'and a lot of those drivers with quite an attitude ("Look at me, I am driving a Tesla, now get the f*** out of my way!" '
Are Audi bleeding sales to Tesla over there, then?

"Chip folk like Perl as it gets the job done at the physical design end of things."
While you're playing with perl scripts the tcl + sed/awk/grep guy has beat you to tape out.
Wrong choice of country. Japanese transport etiquette would have made more sense.
