Re: A reminder of how crap Apple products are
Well done Mystic Megabyte for your troll nonsense.
An iMac would have no problem rotating a JPEG - you had some other problem but failed to look harder.

In 1988/89 the Mac revolutionised the professional print and design industry.
IIx, II fx, IIcx, I remember them well - even the dinky little Classics and SE30s could do useful work for some.
Overnight commercial typesetting companies went bust.
Advertising and general publishing then got on board and by about 1994 the reprographics industry was also chewed up and spat out.
Windows was not a viable replacement till 2000, if that, and even then every design professional would laugh contemptuously.
Lisa led the way.
Disclaimer : I've not used a Mac for nearly 20 years.
Thunderbird search stinks to high heaven and beyond.
Search for 'weds' and you will get weddings as well as some Wednesdays .
Stemming search I think they call it - but it can't be switched off. ASININE BEYOND BELIEF.
Filterng the results of search also stinks:
The list of recipients updates if you filter by year - but if you filter with "not involving this person" - any other people who only appear under that inital user you've filteredd out are still shown in the list, so you have to remove dozens to get a reasonalble list of possibles. It's pathetic.
But yeah a new fancy UX is more important - not.
I bet it looks like a bloody app next year.
Apple Mac SE 30: user complained it kept switching off when she was working, yet stayed on fine if she wasn't using it.
So I sat down for the event she insisted would occur.
It happened and I was surprised - so I thought we'd better repeat it.
Luckily I sat a few feet away and there she was, one leg crossed over the other, pointy shoes, and her leg starts swinging as she gets into her work - and the tip of her bloody stilletto hits the mains switch on the wall, just enough to break the power.
Could just be another personality profile - not everyone wants to join a gang.
If you do this as "proof of concept" you've immediately given away your method - you can be sure something will be brought in to counter it.
There must be sightings by locals outside the perimeter by now - but maybe they hate the airport.
So what's the deal on surveillance satellites?
I don't know how many there are over Southern UK and if one can study Gatwick, but I believe they have enough resolution to see a big drone.
If so the military in charge can tell plod where to find the perp.
Anyone care to explain why that's fantasy?
The fact the fine is small points to it being a stupid idea on his behalf, rather than any nonsense imagined by the Daily Mail reader in our midst.
Processing data at home would be far worse though, wouldn't it?
He then lied when he realised it was a serious mistake and thought the "bumbling idiot" defence might work.
I think the lie will stop him teaching again.
50 years ago?? It was easily done 20 years ago - bought my house for £ 140k in suburban London 22 years ago. Nearly paid off and don't ask what it's "worth" now.
And thankfully I wasn't seduced by a pension mortgage or interest only.
More to the point why did the last buyer of Maplin (or their expert accountants and advisers) fail to see they were being stiffed?
I live about 5 miles from Heathrow though not on the normal flight path. Concorde used to take off, do a sharp right and fly directly down our street seemingly very low - the house used to shake and I'd run out to try and catch a glimpse. My baby son called it Councoun.
And as a kid I used to see it doing the test fights high in the sky over Wiltshire. Amazing machine.
Nice idea but who's going to pay for all that documentation?
(not talking about comments, talking about a full description and record)
On many projects it will need to be continually updated.
Over the long run, let's say 5 years, while that cost should be justified, it does load that cost to the front of the project.
Grow up - if you exclude style formatting you can't view tabular data nicely for one - design and layout are there to make things easier to read and comprehend.
Though I agree that's all that HMTL email should allow.
Anyway Microsoft Outlook won't adopt any of this for at least 20 years.
Don't you lot use Google's "verbatim" option?
Hidden under tools > 'all results' dropdown> verbatim
I used to have a plug in that got Firefox to always do that, but sodding Quantum scuppered that
Verbatim is good .. but can you combine it with date range filter .?. No.
It's pathetic that the evil bastard Google shits on us from on high, just to prove they are the fuckers who don't give a shit about end users.
Doesn't work for tickets as gifts or for parents buying tickets for their kids.
Do you want your teenage progeny taking your credit card to a gig where they will no doubt lose it?
Kids will also optimistically buy tickets but then find their friends can't go (or their parents won't let them) and have to sell them all. I speak from experience. (But easily sold via Gumtree not the bastard agents)
The problem with Singapore's car tax model is that it relies on having poor neighbours where cars past their use by date can be dumped. It's a very eco-unfriendly use of resources.
Anyway there's no opposition in Singapore so government can do whatever the hell it likes. (The opposition is a symbolic pantomime.)
Here it would be political suicide, not that they need much help on that score...
I think Khan has been wilfully misrepresented here.
Only just spotted this - upgraded the personal WP site I maintain.
Looking at Mr Ferrara's post it seems that WP still uses the mysql database driver, not PDO (or mysqli).
How long has it been deprecated ? Six years? That's inexcusable.
But I still don't see why fixing it properly should break plugins?
I live in a marginal lib/con area. Got phoned by a Lib Dem canvasser the day before the vote, but he was in Canada - FFS if they can't use local companies they won't get my vote.
OTOH the young conservatives at my front door, accompanied by an obnoxious Aussie bastard who said a vote for the lib dems was a vote for Corbyn, made the choice very simple.
On the Guardian page on this report someone linked to a study suggesting electro magnetic radiation disrupts insects bio mechanics - I have no idea how valid the study is but :
(one of the reports cited there is by a certain Cucurachi, C - he's hopping mad about it)
- joking aside if this has some truth to it it should be front page news
I used to train small groups of six or so who would travel miles to a training centre for the day.
Some wanted to lap up what I had to say, some couldn't be bothered at all.
Worse were the ones who simply saw it as a day to get out of the office and a nice place to chat to their buddies.
One group went to the pub at lunchtime after scoffing the complimentary luxury sandwiches, and came back pissed two hours later. I so wanted to tell them to FO home.
