A use for Wales.
I loved my Swift when it had Cyanogen, until they went bust.
Now I have a Swift 2 which is an epic phone for the cash but is just another google clone.
3 kids find out the hard way that actions have consequences.
Maximum Overdrive is here, I tell you.
It'll be a cold day in hell before I ever ride in one of these things.
It is overly-featured and cluttered with shite that you have to cut through.
I'd love to see one of these autonomous cars negotiating some sink-hole estate somewhere up North. It would be a flaming ball in about 5 seconds.
If you gave someone a grand in money, 100 tenners, they'd guard it with their life.
Yet people treat phones worth the same in an amazingly cavalier fashion.
We visited Bletchley last autumn and we were priviliged to meet a fine old gentleman named Neville, who is one of the few surviving people who can directly remember Bletchley in the war. He lived there as a child when his parents worked there.
He was awesome, told us some fascinating glimpses into life there, and let my daughter into some normally off-limits places to take some pics.
I sometimes wonder if more young came out to vote because for the last 2 years us old folk have been calling them lazy bastards for not bothering in 2015.
I have predominately been a conservative voter. But in this election I voted Labour, not for Corbyn but because I believed our local labour candidate would be a better MP than the conservative one.
I stuck Nova Launcher on and disabled Foxhole, that seems to have done the trick.
Does anyone know how, without rooting the phone?
I despise it.
Or know the name of the com. app it is?
I loved my Swift 2 with cyanogen, was forced to put fucking Nougat on and now everything that made it good has gone.
And of course, NO ONE ON HERE picks you up for your insults do they? I use the word "idiot" and am told this:
"Please remain civil. If you cannot accept a diversity of views and criticism, public debate may not be your thing."
Whereas you can call me a racist bastard, oh and an idiot as well, and no one bats an eyelid.
Where's the censure for this AC?
Civil? That's hilarious. Being labelled as racist, xenophibic and stupid is not hugely civil, and yet that is all that happens. That's what all us Leavers are, isn't it? Daily Mail-reading working-class? None of us could possibly be intelligent, well-educated professionals, that doesn't fit the easy profile does it?
I am happy to be accused of being wrong. I am not happy at being accused of not thinking very carefully which way to vote.
" I think I did it from a better understanding of the practicalities of what a Brexit vote would lead to"
How exactly have you any idea what level of understanding I have?
Your comment is typical of those who voted Remain and congratulated themselves on their intellectual superiority.
It was not ill-considered.
I have an 11 year old child. Do you think I am not concerned about her future?
It was not about borders for me, and I am not stupid. It was about creeping federalism.
Common trading block, yes please. A US of E? NO THANKS.
I know I'll get voted down to buggery because it doesn't fit the view of all Leavers as 60 year old racists, but there were a lot more of us than you think who, although we like European people and European cultures, could see no choice but to vote Leave as these because it was the only way we could see of stopping this federalism.
No, no it isn't.
It was nothing of this earth, but a piece of the great outside; and as such dowered with outside properties and obedient to outside laws.
1995 called, it wants its website back.
The last time I heard the word ital in a car context it belonged to a tarted-up Morris Marina.
"You don't want to be allowed in Central London anymore when the new pollution measures come in?"
I'm fine with that.
Like so much of the shiny of today, it is foisted upon us without an option to choose wether we want it or not.
It's new so it must automatically be better, right?
What does it actually signify? Probabilities of outcomes?
Ah, that wonderful management refrain "we're on a journey together".
"And if you give them a chance to hold cash in their hand, they instinctively reject it. It just feels wrong"
My 11 year old has a debit card but spurns it in favour of cold hard cash.
I know son, I've worked in IT for 25 years.
I don't want to be a programmer thank you.
It's only one step from the cloud provider hosting your servers to them also doing what you do, but cheaper.
How many of these "Brexit COULD cause the sky to fall in" articles will you do, segueing in some distantly connected IT angle?
SING on, there's nobbut thee an' me;
We'll mack th' heawse ring, or else we'll see.
Thee sing thoose little songs o' thine,
As weel as t' con, an' aw'll sing mine.
We'll have a concert here to-neet,
Soa pipe thi notes eawt clear an' sweet:
Thee sing a stave or two for me,
An' then aw'll sing a bit for thee.
That's reet, goa on, mi little guest,
Theaw tries to do thi very best,
An' aw'll do th' same, then thee an' me
May get eawr names up yet tha'll see.
Why, th' childer's listenin' neaw at th' door;
There's creawds abeawt! there is, forshure.
Heaw pleosed they seem—dear little things!
Aw'd sooner sing for them than kings.
That is all.
You need to get out more then.
I voted for control, not for closure.
I have no desire, or need, to send anyone "home".
Most sensible comment I've read.
Do you Reggers REALLY think that once A50 is triggered we will "send them all home"?
Maybe, just possibly, given that everyone wants to keep on trading, we will work things out and people will still be able to come and work here?
Son, why the hell would I want a computer to choose something for me?
Good, but not quite as good as it thinks it is.
"And an illness is exactly what the article author has."
Apologies, I missed that completely.
Trouble is cooking is a lost art. Cheffing is all the rage and there are many cheffing programmes on TV and books on shelves but where is the teaching of easy, basic, tasty stuff?
Unless you have some form of illness or disability you CAN cook decent meals cheaply, easily and well. And to claim you can't is just laziness.
Spent an hour this weekend making some fantastic home made soups, which were basically water, seasoning, herbs, chicken stock (cubes) and a lot of chopped veg. Froze it in lunch-sized batches.
Add a bit of bread and some meat/cheese/vegan protein and you have a tasty lunch.
When we make mash we always make double or triple as the effort is basicaly the same.. Then freeze the rest in portions. Previously-frozen mash makes the creamiest mash as the freezing destroys lumps. Next time you need mash you do not need to cook it.
I make a pasta sauce from herbs, garlic, onion and canned tomatoes, fry off the onions, garlic, add herbs and seasoning, then the tomatos. Whizz it if you like it smooth. Freeze in batches. Defrost it, heat it up, add pasta and some grated cheese. YUM.
We needs it!
"IBM and the Muslim DB"
That is one shit name for a band.
Why have you got 7 downvotes? Is this a taboo subject.
they did it in their spare time...
What a lot of these stories have in common is the basic assumption that everyone in the world will accept these technologies without thinking.
A great percentage of us do not however.
Ah. I did not know that.
It certainly isn't me.
Unless you count things like chromecasts, which I don't.
Because no chocolate or crisp manufacturer has ever made smaller bags or bars for the same price before now.
It's FUCKING SUPERB.
It cost me 120 quid, it does everything I want, the privacy settings are fantastic, fuck off random application you don't need my contacts.
I'll never contract again and I'll NEVER pay hundreds of pounds for a bloated locked-down handset again either.
