Surely that's just asking for trouble, a bit like the Streisand Effect?
There's an article on these boards isn't there? I can never find it when I look (I'm sure I've had this conversation before)
Hurts my head. It also suggests to me that their user base are a bunch of fuckwits anyway, never going to squeeze a 10 bob bit out of that lot
I'm struggling to think of many sectors I've worked in where this isn't the case; often the best in the field is wasted in a management role or more often as not is terrible at it. Education (best teachers don't necessarily make good heads), sport (plenty of examples of good managers not being to kick a football for example) and construction.
It's a bit worrying that various industries have cottoned on to this fact which has been well documented from the 50s and before. I appreciate many folk want the positions as it's seen as progression (and the money is usually better), but that needs addressing if you want to keep the best talent.
Typical AC comment, blame 'the system' for lack of control.
As has been pointed out, using a CC has many benefits to the user. I have a low limit card for all online purchases (yes I even keep rejecting their limit increases) my logic being if it got hacked it'd a) not be my money anyway and b) the amount they could obtain would be limited to a few hundred quid.
I can happily argue with a CC company or PayPal until the cows come home, my current account is totally unaffected; mortgage, gas, mobile etc all get paid. Try that when your debit card is trashed and your account is plundered. Yes you may get a refund eventually but trying to cover bills or plead with service providers isn't my idea of fun.
Our system has an uphill outlet but it is pumped to the top of the drainage area which is downward. If that pump trips or the float switch gets caught (which happened after initial install until the cable was shortened and rerouted) you'd get a day or two max before the alarm would trip.
It would make it impossible to live with if the run off wasn't working, the frequency of the tanker would be thrice weekly and cost a fecking fortune
So not to disappoint, have a down vote.
Most of what is wrong with your post has already been covered by my fellow commentards, but nonetheless what an utter cocksocket you've made yourself out to be. And a cowardly one to boot.
It's not as if those 'pesky kids' are sleeping rough by choice you dick. Liking kids is not a requirement to showing them a bit of compassion when life is shitty is it?
Well in that case you've missed out on some good stuff over the last decade and a half. Seriously, your loss.
While I agree 'must see' is inaccurate term, there's plenty out there for everyone to find something.
I have to agree Dave, but really just wanted to chuckle about how your TLDR statement is as long as the original :-)
Me and my two pals opted for a South African blend (Bains) as our #1 of the day, priced at about £25. Second went to a Scottish single malt which was five times the price, and although we debated long and hard on our little table the cheaper one won out. That blend put a lot of the other far more expensive samples to shame, including a good range of established Scottish distilleries.
Of course we were tarred and feather by the (incorrect) purists.
I got bought a bottle of their Very Young for my 30th.
God I wish I had kept it rather than drinking it all, nice though it was.
My first purchase in Elite was always a docking computer and that saved me countless lives (well, reloads). So fully automated flight control has a proven track record right there.
All this worry for nothing!
My reading leads me to think that birds pecking outside fly up when punters arrive and sit on cable = lost connection. Our tech rocks up, gets near the wire they're perched on and they fly off elsewhere, only to return when all is quiet. Well, after $hitting all over his motor (probably a Montego, and I have absolutely no reason whatsoever for assuming this).
Not just me then.
First I saw in a cinema was Jedi, on holiday in Yarmouth I believe.
I was surprised at the signal strength throughout my time there (Ho Chi Minh City and Danang), certainly better than parts of the UK.
Snap. 100%. My only saving grace is I never actually got around to digitizing half of it anyway, so I think a few new HDDs for the NAS and I'll start all over again. Or I could do as Dabsy suggests and stick to the discs, especially as I've just been given a lovely Marantz CD separate that's hardly been used.
Hmmm. Do Ikea still sell CD storage?
I'm still amazed folk pay these kind of prices. My last mainstream was a newly released Galaxy 5, and very nice it was too, but a free upgrade from retentions. Now I pay for my handset outright and although they're not 'cutting edge' I'm failing to see what I'm missing out on. Or rather, I now CAN see what I'm missing out on (i.e. Bixby etc).
Mine's the one with a Wileyfox on the back.
Hardly salami slicing is it
Ah yes, running non-printable acetates through in error.
It was up there with my favourite of permanent markers on the whiteboards (or the smart boards as they are now)
Normally I can tell when someone is taking the piss, but I dunno, there's something about your tone....
'...making math assignment.'
Excellent work, keep it up
Reading this stuff never fails to amaze, the sheer achievements being made is simply wonderful
Those are just a few quick ideas...
And, unfortunately, terrible ones
It's not the first time one would have been handy
A very good friend worked until fairly recently at one of the mobile telcos that now constitutes the EE brand, and I assure you they had teams of folk ringing customers up who'd requested no marketing contact to 'ensure their preferences were still reflecting their wishes'.
It was overtly used as a hook to engage in chat and try and up sell and upgrade. Much debate occurred internally about the legality of this and many refused to engage in it, my pal being one.
So I could easily imagine the justification of these emails being agreed in marketeers round tables and not those in charge of data compliance.
I did wonder why the BBC ran a story last month (?) about Prestwick becoming the Scottish Cape Canaveral as it were.
I did wonder if it was just political blustering ahead of Brexit / Scottish referendum, and what not
Apart from the endurance problems associated with the Merlins meaning spares, routine maintenance and costs will be higher when using whirlybirds for aforementioned duties. That's why the Yanks have used the Hawkeye or whatever it is for the last 50+ years.
So the Osprey would have made total sense, because they have far better record for endurance vs cost whilst meeting all the requirements. No, wait....

Great post, and took the words right off my keyboard. I too don't want to be searching for certain things at work.
Look at you, posting on here your support of the project with your open minded and considered approach. And as for understanding the risk associated with crowd funding, well really. Far too rational, be away with you!
Don't you know your supposed to grab the pitchforks when these stories come to light, and chase down the foolhardy who backed such pipe dreams?!
[I'm glad I didn't back it but was sorely tempted. Decided to wait to buy one instead, a bit like that Psion 5 remake]
Good feedback from the Doctor, but they missed the obligatory icon
That's childcare, I get that; I've got one if my own.
I don't get the returning from maternity issue
The statement "how this is meant to suit those returning to work post-pregnancy.” leaves me baffled. What difference to make if you're returning from maternity leave? Even if you're at home you're at work, not looking after the little bundle of chaos.
Shit like this just confuses the issue and detracts from real problems faced by those on maternity / paternity.
Over the years much has been touted about ISPs and their lack of concern in upgrading and going IPv6 compatible. Some even denying it's a problem and a lot not knowing how to even respond to the query.
I guess the answer will be that when access to IPv6 becomes a challenge customers will have to walk from ISPs who can''t provide it. I doubt it'll be a problem in the main as it would be suicide for an ISP to be on the 'old' internet.
I'm sure some marketeers are already dreaming up ways to sell it as an enhanced service to the great unwitted.
We bought our Dragon 32 from the Tandy in Coventry. I still remember bringing it home on the bus with my mum.
Over at CPCWiki there's the same kind of stuff going on; 'jukebox' carts for the short lived GX4000 gaming system (and the CPC+ models), the ubiquitous HXc floppy emulators and others including IDE HDDs, alternative ROMs, 4MB expansions, etc. And of course loads of new software
I was amazed when I had a Poke about....
African or European?!
It's 0.3 Lnq
I hope you forward this onto the Wight Press or whoever they are and demand a correction in next week's run of the Banda machine.
Actually they do a half decent coffee if you are pushed.
There used to be ten Greggs within a square mile in Sunderland.
I don't think 'HMD' is a TLA, it's just HMD Global (who own the rights to Nokia Mobile).
Then Ethernet is your friend.
I'm assuming your talking laptop / base unit here by your comment.
Didn't GAAP confusion drop them in it when buying Autonomy? So which iteration of GAAP are these based on? Or is that just an excuse for covering up a balls up?!
I'm not sure how a CA / NDA could be expected if paying out stat redundancy. If you're going, you're going.
Obviously I'm talking about in relation to the terms of redundancy, noting to do with the role as such.
Granted it doesn't take much, but....
He said it 'was a mistake' which to me kind of implies it was intentional? Not it was a unexpected problem, or unforeseen circumstances or some such, but it 'was a mistake'.
Still seeing the posts above seems actual users are happy with the response, and again a part credit for acknowledging the problem, It's not really for me to comment. But I do wonder what the plan was following the merger.
Or even dropped off securely?
Seriously, am I missing something? Is the plan to drop off at these kiosks in supermarkets etc that are popping up? I don't see how this is going to reliably get stuff to me when I'm not outside looking up?!
6150 please, that was the pinnacle of my Nokia ownership (bar a reasonable loan of an N95, but that's far too modern)
Arms me nicely for the weekend beer chats.
