While I have little time for golf (waste of a good walk and all of that), living half of my time in Scotland, I can assure you that Play Golf != 1%
You needed a good lighter!
Against a straw proposal a with FPTP massively supported by both conservative and labour politicians
Well in my early fifties and my experience was different. Came out of a CS degree and job offers were all over the place. Decided to do a PhD and the same experience afterwards. OK, startup fund were a wee bit sparse(they wanted real (tm) business planes and some idea of getting money back rather than an IPO followed by a rapid decline in share value), but we managed and prospered rather well.
My children have a completely different experience.
These things do go in cycle, my generation were very lucky. Fortunately I have been able to put some of it back (into family and others).
Well to be fair, the odd diehard (such as Wiley Fox) are doing their best to update phones.
One of the reasons that our experience has been that decent mathematicians make extremely good coders and designers (in real time systems anyway) - got to work to stop them getting bored :-) but the documentation is good if sparse!
Well - apart from both the article and the comment making me shudder :-) Leaches are used in modern medicine - http://sciencenetlinks.com/science-news/science-updates/modern-leeching/
The original Landrovers (steering wheel in the middle) were promoted with pictures of them pulling harrows and small ploughs
security through obscurity perchance? And we all know ho well that works....
Well as I understand it WileFox are issuing Nougat updates for the storm - but are you talking about something else?
Quite! Having said that my mobile browser allows me to load the desktop variant which allows me to do that (for occasional sports). Not being a student of mobile browsers, not sure how widespread this is, but...
I derive devious pleasure from the inevitable process of setting up in a boardroom for which absolutely no one, least of all IT support, knows how the extensive and very expensive-looking integrated AV equipment works.
And has been ever so. As soon as my small company - no a little bigger, could afford a small, portable projector We had two that went on the road for external presentations, no matter what the client.
They have got a little (well a lot) smaller, cheaper and brighter and we now have 6 - but they are still and essential part of travelling kit.
New unit of measurement (to me, even after many Wales, swimming poosl and other reg units). But - male or female badgers?
well akshereley anyone doing nuclear weapons simulation was also with up the list...
Or the Edinburgh festival perchance?
Bu they will not stay so with Britain outside - and if you want to do business within a larger economy.....
Some of it is. For the moment.
I think you may be correct, but as I have the right to an Irish passport (recently acquired the documents), I am pretty happy with the German approach.
Maybe not, but traditionally I believe that they are past masters on the art of assessing doughnuts
Well actually you need to talk to both parties - many misconceptions are resolved at an early enough stage to avoid disasters
Well, more to worry about, because now it's clear that WL is not a press outfit (it lacks a certain je-sais-quoi, namely neutrality)
And you count the Daily Mail and Fox News as press outfits because off what?
well US contract do seem to be extortionate. I spend £15 (UKP) a month for 5000 minutes of calls, unlimited data and 5000 texts a month
But is there a warning that without this information you will not have access to all of the headphone features? And I bet they didn't warn about this on any of their advertising data
It might be linked with the continued and growing use of bluetooth beacons for the delivery of context local information (in museums and the like). No that this is any reason for Bose to continues this piracy. On a related note, I have a set of Sony MDR11s (I think) - they are imho better than the Bose equivalent they are competing with and not having any leads is remarkably convenient when travelling/ No data is slurped and no access other than bluetooth pairing is necessary. After many years of despairing to Sony's attempts to circumvent privacy they may be getting it right (or maybe they just have not got round to it :-(
Yup the much quoted (although he alway denied it Willie Sutton - Sutton was asked by reporter Mitch Ohnstad why he robbed banks. According to Ohnstad, he replied, "Because that's where the money is." and in a later interview, reminiscent of many hackers
Why did I rob banks? Because I enjoyed it. I loved it. I was more alive when I was inside a bank, robbing it, than at any other time in my life. I enjoyed everything about it so much that one or two weeks later I'd be out looking for the next job. But to me the money was the chips, that's all
No uncle Rupert vetoes anything that has not passed through him before that heptanes.
Which will be further complicated by the apparent enthusiasm for the Tory party to support the inclusion of farming and food production in any trade negotiations with the US leading to drops in animal welfare (not that much go the farming lobby - the big boys) could give a shit, and competition from very much cheaper (subsidised as well) meat and veg.
I don't see this ending well for the gaming Brexit lobbyists.
If true (well actually whether true or not) the Gates/Jobs exchange is amusing
I still have (a working Mac+) along with a whopping great SCSI hard drive - all 20MB of it full of all sorts of odd application, including a rather wonderful chess program (which includes migratory and aggressive black holes). From what I remember this was a little bit of skunk ware c/o Apple engineers. It ran on the original OS (which I can boot from floppies still) but broke a few generation in - well before OS6. Reputedly this was because they had used one two many system calls that were not part of the standard set and which were deprecated.
I can't find (OK did not look too hard) any mention of it online so I might document by still running variant.
Well if you look at a the sequence of events, arrest followed b the refusal of the court to prosecute, followers by an appeal to all prosecution followed by.....
One view of the US 'judicial' system ->>>>
More amenable than Whitehall and Westminster - pull the other one
do you think he might have been studying the Oracle guide to ethical business practices - but failed to complete the appendix 'and how not to get caught or at least have plausible backup'?
case not car of course.
Forgive me if I am wrong - I'm sure someone will correct me in that car, but I had always understood a 'stalking horse' to be the bidder used (with little hope of acquiring and organisation or succeeding to a political position) to put pressure on the target, who is then more amicable towards a rival (the actual stalker) taking over. Would't Cap's acquisition of assets if the organisation is broken up by Capp reclude this description
Well Mir was interesting (as a peripheral observer), but it did not seem to solve a fundamental problem - that is the differences between requirements and resources (from screen size onwards) between a mobile device and a desktop (or even a laptop).
I remember Microsoft trying it - twice - and no matter what you think of their ethics, they do have some talented people working for them, even if their efforts seem to be subsumed and stifled the the Borg all too often. Mi had some interesting ideas, but a working unified, coherent system it never seemed to have a hope of being.
But how about addressing the point made by the post you replied to (at least I assume it is the one immediately above your 'reply)?
You'll be lucky.... But full marks for at least trying
I think the BOFH and the PFY are genuinely interested, maybe fascinated, and maybe even thinking that he had potential and just needs a little bringing on. A little like the occasional young animal who wanders into the middle of a pride of Lions, appears to be taken care of by one of the animals and miraculously almost escapes (before one of the others spots lunch on the hoof)
It would seem from the present bunch, bromide would be of more use
He is on a desert island. Presumably in the sea? What do you think the salt is for - curing obviously. And of course all that sun would come in handy for a bit of hot saps jerky production.
but not blow?
Not apocryphal. In the US two car mechanics were prosecutor for playing 'a joke' on one of their colleagues. Not lethal, but serious injuries. That is the only rime I have actually seen a verifiable account though.
To be fair, there are some truly excellent beers from small breweries in the US - and you probably haven't tasted Fosters (c/o) UK breweries or the horse piss (from an ill nag) from Budweiser (not the Check one) the the US peddles all over the ill informed world.
Where do you think the independent experts get their plans from for the successful contracts
Well they built a glider for an escape from Colditz during WWII. It was never flown (quite possibly to the relief of the escape team), but I was given a scale model balsa & tissue model as a child and mine flew. I seem to remember it ended up in the jaws of our Labrador who had observed us laughing ti from the top window in the house and cunningly waited outside, biding his time.
Not so surprising. An ex colleague of mine builds the most exquisite clocks (mechanism and case both from scratch). Admiring the work he casually mentions, that other than a very few tools (magnifiers, vices some but not all saw) He had built all the tools he used - not available from the local hardware store! -> for both of them
Andyou have to print them out in order to get the benefits (collateral) of the almanac out in the small and very private room down at the bottom of the garden.
Can I suggest that By causing that human being, by threats or fear of violence or by deception, to do anything that causes his death; would be plausibly arguable - as I am sure the prosecution will do, and on the face of it very reasonably
At least VPNs are effectively (well somewhat) disaggregating your amazon (for example) data from unit spankwire (to use another one). ps if there is someone native reading this (probably not), don't look up the last on a work computer....
