Why are the headers so painful to access in many clients?
I know the great unwashed don't understand them so they must be hidden to keep the illusion that its all simple and magic, but they hold the closest thing to the truth and I want to be able to read them. Not to have to do the computing equivalent to searching in the basement with no stairs, in a filing cabinet, behind a sign saying beware of the leopard. Hurmph
35 mph are you sure that is correct. I have always experienced this phenomenon as 40 on dual carriageway, 40 on A roads, 40 on B roads, 40 in 30 zones, 40 in 20 zones, 40 past the school, hospital, old people home. Its almost like there is only one speed, or the driver is too lazy to do any thinking.
Auto gearboxes, I am sure there must be good ones out there, but I have only experienced ones that wanted me to be sure the acceleration was what I really, really wanted. By the time it decided I did and and changed down, a nice safe gap turned into a clean trousers requirement.
El Reg should dev a button to insert the regularly occurring "When I were a lad" Monty Python sketch. Or implement additional points for the individual who gets back to; when I were a lad we only had Hydrogen and had to craft our own heavy elements, bare foot in the snow.
Just noticed there is another on in https://forums.theregister.co.uk/forum/1/2017/08/04/on_call/
Is the compression algorithm something like this. Processed in binary, remove all zeros as this is just wasted space and dedupe the ones. By my reckoning you have invented infinite compression. Well done, if you will excuse me now I need to go an oil my perpetual motion machine.
"are you really trying to argue that there isn't evidence of useful nutrients being contained in vegetables?"
No, that would be insane. It was intended as more of a comment on the media, as I am recommended to eat one thing one day and not the next, but wait until tomorrow it will be ok again.
I believe we have made it to a 10-a-day recommendation. Probably followed by another piece of research that is either paid for by a vested interest or taken out of context by the press that says fruit and veg is bad and we should only eat moon rock if we want a long life.
All things in moderation and try to get out of the chair long enough to raise the heart rate.
"How exactly does one 'prepare' for a third world war? :("
A) Make peace with your maker
B) Spend quality time with family and loved ones
C) Do the things you have always wanted to do
D) Invest in hedonistic pleasures (I have just looked up hedonistic to make sure I was spelling it correctly and It appears I have just written : Invest in investing in pleasures pleasures. Probably should have just written hedonism)
Pick any combination that appeals to you and does not make anyone else preparation harder - be nice to one another.
There was a time when I watched the Discovery channel and wondered what drives the offgird'ers to live 20 miles from their nearest neighbor. Now I find myself with a increasing collection of outdoor tools and looking longingly at woodlands for sale.
The purpose of a business is to provide a mechanism for people to support their families, they do this by providing goods or services others consider to have value.
Mine is the checkered one with the Davy Crockett style hat.
Enter True or false in a cell Excel will treat it as a Boolean value, try the same thing via code and enter a whole world incorrect types. The source of this particular pain is the auto conversion of the cell to Boolean type and there being no way of specifying a cell is a Boolean value.
I caveat this with "That I have manged to find", "I quickly got bored and just used integers", "Life's to short for messing around with this", "Really FFS"
It sounds like you could happily include it in a techno track and it would not sound out of place. Now to get my brand of techno in to the play list for a public place, a railway station for example. No wait, announcers already sound like this, may be someone has beaten me to it. Another plan for world domination thwarted.
Looking at the json only about a 100k are not associated with the UK
"name" : "United Kingdom",
"code" : "GB",
"signature_count" : 3549478
I do appreciate that this probably indicates there is a lot of other rubbish in the data. Yes I am sure that the real people who sign the petition would like the country the think again, but are realistic that this won't happen. But they would like the petty inbred retrogrades that appear to run the country that we pretty P***** about their squabbling, one upmanship, and vested interests that have created a whole load of pain for us and the next generation which we don't really need.
Who in their right mind posts something to the internet (particularly when in a public position) without giving it a once over to make sure it does not contain anything that the outside world has no right to know about. Not really thinking about pron here, but innocuous stuff like web mail tabs, other applications etc.
Official duties whilst browsing pron, head in hands, face palm (maybe just bang head on desk,hands not available) we should set an award like the Darwin awards for spectacular political suicide where IT is the weapon of choice
Interesting question, So interesting I have had to look it up on the fountain of truth and accuracy that is Wikipedia, and it says the for the law of salvage to be used the subject has to be in danger (not necessarily immediate). I guess an army of military lawyers would rush to court to explain it was under autonomous control and not in any danger, thus you owe them time in a location of their choosing and/or plies of cash.
Does it not depend on how you classify arse. If the individual is one as well as having one the ratio of Arse:Elbow could be 1:1. They could also be extremely unfortunate and have fallen out of the ugly tree hitting every branch on the way down, resulting in a face like the arse of a donkey as well as being one and having one. The resulting Arse:Elbow ratio being 3:2.
Sorry I am over thinking this, I'll get my coat.
I would have been more concerned about the electrical build quality, I quite like things like mains transformers to be attached / enclosed. However in the current situation it could have cleaned the gene pool of some dead ends (not Ahmed as he built it and presumably know which bits not to touch).
1) Approach Checkouts
2) Evaluate items
Nothing too light
Nothing too heavy, long, big, etc.
Not too much stuff (for pity's sake don't touch it to rearrange, once you have started the transaction)
No illegible, missing bar codes
No Drugs, Solvents, Glue, Paint, Alcohol, knives, anything vaguely dangerous
No coupons, offers or other weirdness
Own bags, its a risk!
If you pass the above checks then there is an outside chance you could use a self checkout without assistance from the supervisor and the obligatory swearing at the machine.
I was already aware that part of the human condition is to produce pointless widgets to justify one's existence. But a $120 cup that may require firmware updates and is out performed by looking at the bottle you filled the cup from (unless you have developed a new version of Russian Roulette, by keeping beverages and cleaning products in identical unmarked bottles in the same cupboard and only filled your cup blindfold, with a peg on your nose) takes the p***.
Which makes you wonder what it would do if you participated in that particular fetish, maybe there is something in the terms.
money back from HMRC without a pile of forms in triplicate, just what I was expecting.
I wonder how many people will still fall for it even with its Phishing addition.
I will be off now, a long lost relation I did not know I had has found a bezzilion down the back of a sofa and needs some help banking it.
