54 people who maybe sort of know what they are doing, trying to supervise 250 people who know nothing. I'm not sure that's going to work.

Re: Cash on the barrel head
Try paying by cash on a London bus and let me know how you get on.
Re: Double Plus Good
If you do have something to hide, it doesn’t mean you’ve done anything wrong.
Re: No Tax?
Here's an example:
Suppose the employer is paying a total cost of £50,000 for the contractor
On a salary, that would be £44262.51 + Employer's NI of £5737.49
On that, you pay £8360 in tax and £4627.52 in NI, leaving you with £31,274.99 in your pocket
Suppose they paid via a company, and that company had no expenses other than salary, dividends and tax, and paid all the after-tax profits out as dividends
Company pays a salary of £8424 which is tax and NI free, leaving a taxable profit of £41576
Pays corporation tax of £7899.44, leaving a net profit of £33676.56
Dividend tax on that is £1893.79 leaving you with £40206.77 in your pocket
 £3426 remaining on your personal allowance + personal savings allowance of £5000 is tax free, the rest is taxed at 7.5%
Remember that your employer also has to pay National Insurance, so it is a bit more than double that.
First £162 per week, no NI
£163 - £892 - employee pays 12%, employer pays 13.8%
£893 and above - employee pays 2%, employer pays 13.8%
It is charged on whole pounds only, so for example if you are earning £162.99 per week, you round it down to £162 before calculating the NI due.
Re: Thanks, Labour
Babcock International Group plc is the top of the chain. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange. The CEO gets a salary of £2m for their efforts.
OCR systems usually have a spell checker, so problems tend to be errors that are correct spellings of a different word.
Also, for a letter of that length, it would be quicker to type it than OCR it anyway.
Re: You can always let the ICO know about them.
They responded to me when I reported Sainsburys for having video cameras pointed at their card reader pin pads.
Re: UK's 11 main political parties
Tories, Labour, Lib Dems, Co-operative Party (they have 37 MPs in Westminster who sit with Labour)
Add SNP to the above
Add Plaid Cymru to the above
In Northern Ireland
DUP, Ulster Unionist, SDLP, Sinn Féin
That's 10 parties.
You could maybe add UKIP, Greens and Alliance
I believe some of the big English parties have separate registrations in Scotland and Wales.
So I guess you can find 11 main parties.
As far as the hardware is concerned, the Vega is a lot worse. Software, probably about the same, and software was why the toshiba got such a low score.
So, if you don't pay a £260,000 fine, you get a sternly worded letter telling you not to do it again within the next six years, but after that, it's OK.
That's really going to discourage him.
Re: Quick solution
"Not at all. Instead the success and victory of the feminist cause that has achieved its goals and has been resolved pretty much throughout the west should be taught. That we are already equals and even that the needle has gone the other way."
In the UK, 17% of girls study tech subjects.
In Iran, 70% of girls study tech subjects.
Iran are not generally considered to be world leaders in feminism, and we have a long way to go just to catch up with them. So when describing the situation in the UK, I wouldn't use words like "success", "victory", or "achieved its goals".
By the way, if you look at the number of men doing supposedly women's jobs or studying supposedly women's subjects, that is even worse.
It is exactly the same as the list of government IT projects.
I would like to bid for this
I have developed a blockchain based system which embeds the admin tasks as smart contracts, and runs seamlessly with cloud-enabled internet-of-things devices that utilise machine learning to leverage the most optimal learning experience.
Please subscribe to my TeachCoin ICO and I guarantee you will make a return of 50% per day. What's more, this return will be paid in TeachCoins giving you the opportunity to make further gains over and above this 50% guarantee.
Re: Quick solution
"Put an outright ban on PC feminism and other stupidity"
So we go back to the supposedly good old days when tech was only for boys, and cooking was only for girls .
 This attitude still seems to exist despite the fact that the vast majority of Michelin starred chefs are men.
Top Euro court: No, you can't steal images from other websites (too bad a school had to be sued to confirm this little fact)
"Are you supposed to just not use an image in case there is a copyright?"
There is a copyright, unless the image is really old and it has expired.
A phone with a Three sim in it isn't going to connect to a Vodafone tower if it can't find a Three tower.
What happens if your phone is with Three who don't offer a 2G service?

Sorry, being in a relationship with a Daily Mail reader doesn't get you off the hook.
Re: Something bad happened! Read more here.
Or for better examples, look at Outbrain and Taboola.
Sounds a bit like Volume Shadow Copies, or zfs snapshots. I presume there is something similar on Linux.
Re: (misleading stats)
"or are there other x86 vendors in the market whose figures should be added to the mix?"
No, but there are other chips that aren't AMD64 compatible that could be used in some cases. The Itanic is I believe still shipping, and probably someone is using it. ARM is another option
Re: What we need
Obviously emacs is better than vi.

I do hope that 07890123456 isn't a real phone number.
"NAT is *not* a security feature!"
Except that it is. For example, I don't need to worry about the possibility that spammers might decide to print ads on my printer, because I haven't forwarded any ports from outside to it.
Re: Hmmmm funnily enough...
5 years, but that's OK because I have 8 years experience of working[*] with 5G wifi.
[*] Yes, I know it's not the same thing.

Re: Stop 5G
Coverage is one of the problems of 3G that 4G solves, so it is better to spend the money rolling out 100% 4G coverage, then switch over the 3G frequencies to 4G use.
Re: NT4 uptime measured in years
My FreeBSD server hasn't been around quite that long, but I've had it for about 6 years now. Last reboot was 203 days ago to replace the motherboard. My highest uptime was about 4 years.
WhorePresents.com is a very suitable name for a site to contact your congrescritter, given that they whore themselves out to the highest bidder.

ExpertSexChange were really good at spamming Google links back in the day, but they were, and probably still are, utterly useless.
Re: Calls? Check?
Is that the thing that lets sexist nuisance callers contact me to demand to speak to "the head of the household"? TBH, I would prefer that they didn't support this feature, or at the very least, that they let you uninstall the voice calls app.
3.5mm audio jack
User replaceable battery
All-day battery life
Micro SD card slot
None of the flagships seem to offer these features.
Re: It's gonna cost more than that...
That table is around somewhere. First Direct is top of the list.
I would imagine their anti-moneylaundering checks haven't been as rigorous as they usually are, and people are taking advantage of that, especially as Barclays seems to have cleaned up their act a bit in that department.

Google Plus exists. In the event that you wanted to export your Tweets there, it would be possible to do so.
Re: 'how its possible to take a $1 million out of a ATM in a day?'
The mules buy the cards at a discount to their account value.
If the withdrawal limit is eg $500 per day, then put the money in 1000 accounts, create 1000 cards for them, easy if they are magnetic, not so easy if the machines require chip cards, then withdraw $500 on each of them just before midnight and another $500 just after midnight.
Re: i9 works great in a suitable chassis
If that's what it takes, then you may as well buy a desktop.
Re: How do they do it?
You need a very large supply of these
Re: The Independent non-Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse
“Adults are designed to find the young appealing/children are designed to be appealing,”
Not in a sexual way though, and for most pædophiles, it is not actually about finding them attractive, it is about feeling important and powerful.
Re: Bureaucracy fines bureaucracy, nothing changes
"Microsoft could, dare I say it, voluntarily provide such a facility as a corporate social responsibility thing."
They already do. The default limit is set at 5,000 recipients per message, but you can change this.
Re: I did write to the Gates Foundation...
The worst thing I've ever heard about Microsoft as an employer is that they can be very bureaucratic.
Re: I always love these tales of companies losing money because of a mail
It tells me that the CEO doesn't follow their own rules
There's an easier way
Someone registered a mis-spelled version of our domain name, and used it to send an email apparently from the CEO requesting a money transfer.
Our CEO just does not do this, so he got a very confused member of staff asking what she was supposed to do with the request.
That sounds like a Curve Mastercard. However, I suspect, if you link it to a Visa, it will fail if either the Visa or Mastercard networks go down.
Just get another credit card from a different bank.
Re: Cash is King
£100 notes still exist in Scotland. I've never seen one though.
Homœopathy != herbal medicine, and is not "the traditional system of medicine in many parts of Asia for thousands of years". Homœopathic remedies are no different to, and no more effective than placebos.
