Very little helps: Tesco flashes ancient Windows desktop on Scan-As-You-Shop device

BugabooSue

Re: Handheld shopping...

They are ‘supposed’ to pick shopping in a condition/with dates that you would pick yourself.

I was on the original trial as a Picker & Packer at the Basildon1 store (almost 20 years ago now!).

Back then they used a system they called “WIBI”. It meant “Would I Buy It?” If you wouldn’t, then don’t put it in the trolley. They would rather us substitute something better/similar than send the customer a bad pick.

Don’t know if they still do WIBI today.

On a separate note, my husband found out by randomly tapping various areas of the computer screen (on the trolleys), that you could bring up the Desktop and stop the timer that was tracking your pick. Security by obscurity - it was a multiple tap in one of the corners that revealed the Desktop. :)

In any case, if you don’t like the dates or condition of anything, just hand it back to the driver for a refund. Or phone up later to do the same.

Talking a Blue Streak: The ambitious, quiet waste of the Spadeadam Rocket Establishment

Ad Astra

I remember my late father telling me of work his company did on Blue Streak.

I don’t know how true it was, but he said that some of the machining work was farmed-out to small UK private fabrication companies as a way to keep costs down.

It might have been total BS, but having had a career in the MOD, I can say that we were always willing to save a penny by getting local firms to do non-critical fabrication work when the budget was tight.

It’s so sad that Britain no longer goes it alone on bigger developments such as this. We could have had a serious space industry now instead of running around grubbing for scraps.

Windows Exporer

I can get by with the Win10 Start Menu thing - once I have got rid of the stupid active tiles and the other childish junk.

What I cannot suffer is Windows Explorer! Whoever thought that this pathetic piece of junk was going to be of any use in a work environment is way beyond me!!

I recently had to use it on a colleague's PC, and almost freaked-out as to how it gets in the way of what you are trying to do - just give me a list of the drives and folders goddamit, and stop listing crap by "Recently used" and other nonsense!!

Also, what-the-flying-F was so wrong with File Manager? It was bloody useful!!

I realise I have spoiled myself by installing Directory Opus on all my Windows machines, and that I may be selling Windows Explorer short, but who has the time to waste trying to get that POS to work in a way that makes moving/copy/comparing files a non-event?

Re: I miss Bulldog

Not saying they were not full of brown stuff, but in the "early days of ADSL" you could get higher speeds initially as there was a lower overall noise floor due to most lines carrying just POTS telephone calls.

As more and more folks signed-up for ADSL, the noise floor went up (due to carrier signal/data crosstalk between the physical cables) and speeds suffered accordingly.

At the extreme range of 8km from our exchange, we initially managed to get just under 1Mbps on an early ASDL2 Draytek. 5 months later, we were getting about 720kbps during 'quiet hours' (0300-0600hrs). By end of contract (1yr), it was down to about 350kbps.

I'm looking at you - Sperry 7000 Series.

When I was a PFG (Pimply-Faced Girly) in the late '70's, I was tasked with keeping this beast going.

Every few months it would refuse to play, and I'd shut it down to find one or two mains-powered cooler fans had given up the ghost.

Next would come the "Whisker Search" near where the fans had failed. Hours under a microscope looking for the 'tin whisker' that had shorted out a track, along with the associated eyestrain.

We also had a super-expensive EMI infrared battlefield scanner mounted in a mobile lab that would do the same thing. (Vehicle number 00WB10 if you know it?)

Good old MOD - bought the kit, but never wanted to pay for the upkeep...

Nope, still not buying.

If it were not for the likes of AMD, ARM, and others, providing some competition, Intel would not be even selling processors at this level. They would be still be strangling the end-users for every damn dollar they can using lesser silicon.

I’m not saying other firms are any better, but competition obviously works. I will continue supporting the ‘underdogs’ as my long-term future in computing depends on it.

Welcome to The Circus

The USA Law system is truly nuts now - I will never visit there again.

The trouble is that here in the UK, our Law system is also truly nuts now too.

Both of them have always been nuts, but the last few years have seen a whole new level of batshit-crazy being introduced.

I am glad I am getting old. I won't have to put up with this shit-show for much longer.

I've never felt so threatened by the people who are supposed to have our best interests at heart. The sheer incompetence, corruption, and judicial overreach is almost too much to bare.

True, the guy was dumb in the things he said and did, but these days - "Everyone needs to be made an example of!" And there lies the issue. "Justice" these days is a dirty word. It's all about the Public Spectacle and scoring points in the eyes of the gutter press.

Granddaddy of the DIY repair generation John Haynes has loosened his last nut

With the occasion bit copied from the Factory Manuals

I still find it funny that in the official workshop manual for the Triumph Bonneville T140V/TR7V, it had a diagram of how to adjust the primary chain printed upside down.

The Haynes manuals said that they were “Not just a rewrite of the official manuals”, and there was the exact same diagram - upside down!! :D

Why so funny, to do it the way the diagram showed - you would have to invert the ~400lb (dry weight) ‘Bonnie’ and stand it on its handlebars and seat - just like you would if you wanted to change the tyre on a bicycle...

To John and his family, thank you for all the help over the years.

Another 3D printer? Oh, stop it, you're killing us. Perhaps literally: Fears over ultrafine dust

BugabooSue

Re: no mention of the different types of filaments that can be used

PLA is biodegradable- if you have an Industrial Composter to hand - that garden type isn’t going to cut it.

PLA does smell - usually a bit sweet with a slight curry undertone. PLA, if overheated is not all that nice - gives off carcinogens. It also has a habit of bursting into flames if overheated as it hydrolyses around the hotend and nozzle so won’t flow away like most petrochemical-based filaments.

I write the safety MSDS for our filaments. These are based on the raw plastic stock that we extrude from. ALL plastics suck in one area or another. If you think otherwise, you are deluded.

The trick is to be smart when using this stuff - reduce the risks from the unknown. People thought asbestos was safe when they first starting using it - they even sprayed it out of huge firehose-like nozzles to coat enginerooms of warships and metal girders of large buildings...

I’m not suggesting that the sky will fall in by using a 3D printer, just don’t be an idiot.

Unless you are using an SLA resin 3D printer - uncured resin and fumes from that shit is NASTY!!

Not only can it cause all sorts of illnesses, the effect of exposure is cumulative. I won’t have that crap anywhere around other people. I think they are awesome, just be aware of the risks.

BugabooSue

3D printing

I work pretty much 7 days a week with 3D printers at my place of work. Every printer enclosure has an extraction system linked to it and there are two two-stage cyclonic separators, nano-filters and regularly changed carbon scrubbers. The whole thing is vented externally.

I see YouTube “Stars” with rooms full of printers with no ventilation. I see printer manufacturers Josef Prusa and others, having print farms (rooms full of printers) with little or no ventilation. I see school classrooms full of printers with sod-all ventilation.

This is just dumb.

I see the dust and particulates that build up in our printers over the space of a week - no way do I want to breathe any of that in!

It might turn out not to be a hazard, but if you can avoid breathing in plastic crap by fitting a little ventilation system, why wouldn’t you?

(It won’t be safe. Nothing ever truly is)

I was a COSHH office in the MOD back in the late ‘80s. It was then I discovered just how bad some of this stuff can be.

A tiny bit of common-sense can go a long way. 3D printers are cool, but don’t breathe the fumes...

3D Printing reply

@James 51

Sadly, quite a few years yet. BUT, it is coming...

I have been involved in 3D-printing since 2012 (hobby), and now professionally for over two years.

Despite the continual hype and nay-saying, in the past couple of years I have watched the price of low-end printers tumble, while all the time the capabilities are creeping up and up.

3D printing is not yet truly at the print-and-go for anything other than PLA plastic, but I have seen SLA printers start to become cheap enough for consumers to own (despite the high cumulative toxicity of the resin) and print incredibly detailed objects, and now the prices of laser sintering printers are coming down too.

There's always the "in five years" quote being bandied about, but I think in this case, it is correct.

There are no cheap printers available for the general public at the moment that are capable of making functioning engineering parts out of more durable plastics (nylon, polycarbonate, PMMA, ABS, PEEK, etc) *without* some tweaking and messing about with the print settings, but it is coming my friends, I swear, it is coming - within the next 5 years.. :)

Scammers become the scammed: Ransomware payments diverted with Tor proxy trickery

Beware Management Privilege...

We have a local offline (not connected to the Internet) network backup system, multiple write-once protected physical backup hardrives (in a father, grandfather, great... all the way back to the dinosaurs), and I guarantee that at some point, some idiot will screw the whole lot into Data Hell.

Our backups have (frequently tested) backups. Our servers are fully-patched, mirrored and protected physically by sharks with lasers. The servers spend more processor time searching for Nasties than they do serving, but it will inevitably happen that some Twot (last April it was the tight-fisted Financial Director in charge of IT spend - the delicious irony!) who brought the lot to a grinding halt by using his personal laptop on the local ISOLATED storage intranet.

This was after his “son” (yeah, right!) had been caught using it at home to surf every grubby porn linknknown to man or beast - literally. I saw the search history and browser caches!!

Not saying what he did to the system, but the damage went back through nearly 3 months of business data before we found the root cause.

That vulnerability attacked was completely outside what any of us had envisaged (he was using the servers to save his, er, “Son’s” porn collection).

We now have a new Finance Director. SHE doesn’t stand for any shit - from us, or anyone else. We get the money and resources we need, and hopefully the company doesn’t have to suffer this again.

It will happen again. To say it won’t is idiotic, but at least we know that the backup system works - The network was purged and refreshed overnight and we lost nothing of importance.

I love the Easy Life. :)

iOS 11.3 beta preview version busted too

At the risk of attracting the Apple haters here, but since the release of iOS 11.3 to us developer types, the Skype app has been busted for about the same amount of time.

Moving Goalposts

A lot of folks who have not worked in the Defence Industry do not get just how fast military technology and specifications evolve.

In my 22 years in this field, almost every project that was delivered was so much more complex and (usually) more capable than the original spec called for.

This usually meant that budgets were exceeded and deadlines broken, sometimes on multiple occasions.

As usual, us poor sods at the ‘coalface’ working our arses off were blamed - often there is bugger-all mention of the hundreds of “tweaks” and changes that out lords and masters decided to implement the instant the project was green-lit.

Whenever we’d get close to completing a particular goal, some bright spark would say, “It would be great if we could interface Widget A (designed in the 1960’s out of the equivalent of electronic granite) as well as that new-fangled kit that uses SQUIDs (Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices)” or some other such bollocks!

The goalposts are ALWAYS being moved!! “Can you just add this bit..?”

While I still think that the F35 contract management and system integration are total clusterfucks, this is Military R&D 101. Add to this *some* contractors “Riding the Gravy Train” and the waste of time and money multiply almost exponentially.

Hopefully, at some point the specs will get set in stone and the dead bits will get cut away. If/when someone finally has the balls to do this, the F35 might actually turn out not to be the bad joke it currently is.

For a top-of-the-range miniaturised portable computer/entertainment device that can also make phone calls, I don’t think it is a totally unreasonable price.

However, I use my 6S+ 128GB to carry endless ‘stacks’ of PDF’s and tech manuals that I need for my job (better than lugging around a 1kg laptop!), but sadly that is way too rich for me.
