Re: Vomit inducing
Nightmares about seas coming on board and over an oil rig deck. Rig does not move much but its like a Singapore downpour at 40+m.

Just in time.Aircraft in Norway / Finland had GPS knocked out last week by an intruder, so military sexercise and all civilian aircraft had to navigate independent of GPS. probably absolutely necessary for nuclear subs, which have a very accurate known starting point
Alteration of a document produced by me, by 3rd party 'others' (who should only transmit it) , was countered at meeting by my requesting very publicly the name/address of 'the others solicitors', as I would bring an action for breach of copyright. Silence ensured. I then handed out printed copies I had brought. The leader then advised said '3rd party others' that they were unreliable, asked them to apologize and myself on receiving apology not to sue.
The Royal Mail has a very fine system for posting cash to another person. Called a Postal Order , recipient turns it into cash at any post office. Effectively a 'named bearer check/cheque'.
Also they allow cash but only insure up to a finite limit. OK for children's/kid's birthday twenty pound notes.
I assume the photographer has obtained the prior written permission of all the owners of the buildings and artefacts in his photo, which are images subject to their owner's copyright, before he photographed them, otherwise it can backfire with owner's claiming fees from him for 'reproducing their artefact'.
Thanks for all your work. It enlivens my reading and stops ''productive'' work at my hobby of using computers.
Ghosts can be real and seen in daylight by groups of non-drunken soldiers, where only one person thinks it is somewhat a 'wrong (injured) horse', we report said horse only to find police say ' Oh the ghost horse' and record the sighting as they had done for many decades. Trust your ghost will occasionally give us a contribution.
Welcome Rebecca. Keep up the good work.
I use "SLAX" "9.x" (now based on Debian, as a Live Linux for my elderly grandmothers i tutor to put in computer for their Grandchildren to use without breaking Grandma's computer. I used original SLAX as a Live Distro for many years on old computers or stranger's computers.
On some flights I have taken, your weight (as presented to aircraft including all the things in your pockets, ) is checked on scales and this allocates seat position. Over 35 years of flying as a passenger (weekly or more flights taken) I found this occurred about 4 to 8 times per year. No big deal!
I drove through the five wee 'towns' often, as MK was being made, as I had business with folk/firms there. It was at one state, like all building sites unlovely, but maturity of a town to live in takes a half century of so so new generations (locals) grow up over the incomers (their parents). A Canadian city I lived in was about 200,000 folk when I went there its now over 1 million, a very different place. Good Luck to all folk in Milton Keynes.
These rules seem sane, but how is user to know cut off length of password database field? Do you have a fixed or unfixed maximum length. I say 14 minimum is maximum 40 or 400 or 4000?
Clue I usually use two lines of poetry (mixed up) but each line from a different language so often have 60 to 80 character length easily remembered passwords. I find no information on many sites re maximum length, (Fault of defining maximum is it limits password searches to fixed x to y characters for any attacher's convenience.
A client (very specialised, made very expensive 'flying machines') used our mechanical blowers which were electrical motor driven to put air into test systems. Sometimes when they ran systems the fuses in main power supply house burst - our fault get down here!!! It was no problem to test whole system when unconnected to flying machine, it all works. Then one day the town's main electric supply burst (big fuses melted!) . Um!. On investigation I show it works. Connect flying machine and it fails. Is Pipework to flying machine OK? I ask - "Yes, of course!". I doubt and ask to proceed to pipe to check , "NO stop, you will not walk pipe or access the roof!!! %% $$." "Roof pipes are OK."
Manager, said no one is allowed on roof!. Ah I say, but your total insurance against a big explosion (by over pressure) is on the roof so someone must have checked pipe? "No not in 5 years, no one allowed on roof!
Eventually I walk system including roof. Ah, no air flow from over pressure pipe outlet dip to atmosphere.I look inside pipe. Nesting seagulls with a big guano glued nest to inside of pipe. Get tools, scrape out nest. Switch on and all OK. Cost about XX hundred thousand pounds of lost product time and town unworkable.
Gulls had had a happy nesting site with some warm air flow until Guano really glued the air flow pipe closed. Result a working connected e-motor going into reverse when the coupled machine went into reverse by back flow air over pressure, big electric surges melting fuses all over the place. Our bill was not queried. Our report was (somehow?) not shown to insurers, and we just found all went well in future for our guys on that site as no one ever queried their actions. Sometimes it is not the obvious that is a fault
Using OpenSUSE Leap 42.3 with XFCE. Very stable. Menu bars where I want and even a dock or docks where I want. Used on 2012 Dell and 2015 Dell, USB Dual Boot with Windows 10. Very pleased as a day to day system. However I install Ubuntu LTS on learner's machines as they have hard copy (Magazine format book) to read offline.
Many accounting suites (even at major types) dump *only to excel*. [N1] They do not dump to any other installed spreadsheet program. Thus work around is a comma separated data dump and then reopened in spreadsheet of choice to sort out reports.
[N1] lazyness in coding and assuming all desks run MS Office software.
This is not a fallacy. As I was "trusted", once when I visited to an Italian firm, I was asked to witness the owner's signature to four or five 'sets' of accounts. Each told a different story for the firm's results for that year I believe, but then I only saw the signature page, not the detail pages. My witnessing his signature was true, the contents of the previous pages was unknown to me.
HMRC. If you are a 'contractor'' and not a "worker" or "employee", your contract may state you must provide your own IT equipment EXCEPT when working on site of Client. This is an established part of proving 'independence' under HMRC probe for IR35. Thus ,yes, there is a case where a contratcxor would connect to NHS via their own computers from home, for remote working.
To get a semi-automatic small debts court paper started, try to keep invoices below GBP £5,000. and invoice period at a maximum of 14 days. This allows an internet claim for small debts action to be made. It means your terms must include your ability to invoice when any debt due for work done is over GBP £4,500.
1. It seems some wayward Scots fought back, but many were in the Dutch side. Maybe England can hire some part time Scots sailors /out of work fisher folk to greet the Dutch folk.
2. PS I am some what biased. a Scots exile in England these past 60 odd years with happy memories of time in The Netherlands.
1. I always use only my landline for all outgoing calls. Free cost inside ISP charges .
2. Incoming calls only from family as text messages to mobile. All other calls to mobile disregarded.
3. Incoming calls on landline have occasional Spam , All are logged and reported.
3.1 If genuine all callers know to call on my land line.
4. If I feel like it I apply a spurious talk on a spam call up, but I have to be bored by
Answer that no one uses landlines is false. (PS my work also only uses landlines for non company calls, so many thousands per year on landline)
I see failure on friend's daughter's computer.
Virgin Media as ISP, Acer comp. Win10 (7upgrade!) normally, then moved location Leeds to Warrington..
Computer moved to family house with BT as ISP. Internet connection failed. 20161208&20161209.
Virgin 'down' in places due Win 10 upgrade, but this is Machine that does not connect to internet on local BT router. Reset, reboot does not clear.
1 In one 'job' I had in the past, most employees had 'convicted status'. It depends on the 'cime' and the useful skills needed by 'employer'.. 2. Disclosure: I ended up in that job due to bad activities which caused me to be recommended for selection by a superior who knew how useful my attitudes/skills could be for the job for which they were recruiting.
