Upon Cursor-y examination...
Not quite forever...
I think it goes something like this:- "my first instructor was Satya Nadella,...he taught me to sing a song. It goes like this..."
Don't forget the F-word...
Maplin started as a mail-order business many, many moons ago - that distance-selling mindset should have helped with the on-line. Ironic that a business that was originally not about retail sites was killed off by the retail side...
First we screwed the country, now let's screw each other.
One imagines that Deliveroo will charge double the going rate for every dish to these queuers in order to get them ready for the Apple technology pricing strategy...
Trump's head contains vacuum.
So dense that he is not even air-headed - the Trump Dichotomy.
Oracle Database Excretedata Cloud Service...
Is it the strange practice of "forearming" that spreads it then? No wonder there's confusion regarding the use of the condom...
... to git while the gittings good
To avoid spillage, why not move the beer in some kind of sealed, pressurised container with a tap fitted?
Perhaps one could give such a container a name: keg, perhaps?
A comb - to treat the symptoms? Address the problem at source, and make the gift a tongue razor!
I have this on at least 2 compilation CD's...
Go Wild in the Country and I Want Candy too.
But don't worry, the rest of the compilations contain music
Freeze the thing in a domestic freezer. When time to cook, cover two Mars-bars in liquid nitrogen and, when down to temperature, remove them from the liquid and shatter them with a hammer.
Place the shattered Mars-bars atop the frozen Yorkshire-pizza thingie, and immerse in a thick beer batter.
Remove coated delicacy from batter and deep-fry.
Server together with Tennant's Super or white cider.
Let's not forget the "supercilious, formalistic silly words surround us" form that pops up at every mention of the West Coast.
I prefered the sarky headlines - but someone seems to have taken to heart the old saying "sarcasm is the lowest form of wit." Whether the saying is true or not, I's like to see more of the sarky taglines!
"The controlled folder access mechanism within Windows Defender prevents suspicious applications from changing the contents of selected protected folders."
Turned this on, went to check email. OUTLOOK.EXE is blocked.
Another well thought out feature, then!
I must be a grocer :-)
That is not normally an error I make, but mea culpa
They exist - and you are right that the Vietnamese use them well - but you need to remember all the shortcuts to get the diacritics.
Not practical for an occasional user.
I have a Note 4, and whilst I like the stylus, in most circumstances it is just a "nice thing to have."
However, there is something for which i have found it essential:- correctly entering Vietnamese text into Google Translate.
For those not in the know, Vietnamese uses the Latin alphabet with diacritics marking the tones, inflexions and guttural stops - having the wrong accents on your text will completely change it's meaning. Since camera input does not work, being able to write the word is very useful, and saves trying to remember the keyboard trickery required to get the right diacritics in the appropriate places.
Since I am married into a Vietnamese family, this is a life-saver!
Niche perhaps, but suits me!
Haven't we been here before? Ah well, BACS to the future
HMS Forth, due to enter service with the RPN in 2018...
I have always thought that the only thing worse than a cold seat is a warm one, since that normally implies that you are a follow-on visitor...
That said, having encountered one of these beasties some years ago in a Japanese-owned hotel in Vietnam, I was left thinking that a small screen on the cubicle door running an animated instructional video might be amusing - just think of the fun one could have with the graphics!
Q. What person smart enough to make backups in the first place fails to check to make sure the backups are useable?
A. An expensive consultant
Surely Bob's your uncle.
Don't call him Surely, though.
My gratitude is infinitesimal...
Perhaps it's a fridge for smart beer...
I would assume that smart beer would contain a "chemical fingerprint" (a la smart water) that would only be apparent once the beer rental period was complete. A quick flash of UV light on the walls and pavements near pubs would show the "audit trails" and allow the problem to be traced back to source.
Now, combining this with the "quick jolt of 230V" mentioned elsewhere and you have a self-correcting and auditable scheme for tackling this particular anti-social habit. But I digress...
Having joined the "flexible workspace program," Jane now need to prove that she could get into the workspace.
Tech Support? Good. Folded at a right-angle, as requested. No, no, the screen is still not right...
I can't believe you lugged that all the way into the forest
