"Know" in the Biblical sense?
Regrettably "Signal" requires a 'smartphone'; so users who only have a 2G phone and computers (desktop/laptop) can not access the 'desktop Signal service'.
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.
What do you run in place of Sage for accounts/bookkeeping?
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.
In any population anywhere, there are always the poor and always the rich (terms are relative) so you can never eliminate poverty.
This link in your article has been suppressed or is "deliberately unavailable" on reaching to the PDF from the UK.
The link in article is not working or has been removed. Umm! A press release should be publicly visible.
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.
Show her the BBC iPlayer recording of Ada Lovelace! Then she can talk all the technical things with pride.
"Covered keys" on flip-phone (We have 3 of these, due age, clothing, hearing, arthritis etc.) stop inadvertent calls from pocket. This was main first reason to buy. Since then I have never bought a non-flip-phone.
Age, with decreased short term learning memory, and ingrained thought / muscle habits to do things, make change however slight difficult.
This is not a good solution. I use a desktop computer.. I do not need or want a smartphone. It is a nonsense situation where only solution is to buy a smartphone.
Quote "I once replaced my work computer's entire OS with Ubuntu because I didn't want to use Windows Vista" Unquote. That was wise.
They also have great difficulty with UK native languages. Passport in English name, normal use name in a native language as the locals use their language. However the 8 character limit on password is a big failing for a bank.
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.
Video much enjoyed, but.....
There is no thanks to sysadmin, if the castle collapses, there is no boss to congratulate you. You should at least leave his chamber standing in the video.
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.
old POP3 email client? residual on departing admins computer.
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.
My comments are not printable in family site.
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.
It is better to sit to urinate if male to avoid 'spray microdrops' from water entering the atmosphe, likewise close lid before flushing for same reason.
What is a smartphone, windows or other type? I make phone calls or wee text messages on my phone, nothing else.
Teleco at home is not available at work, so TWO SIMs are necessary. micrSD so all stuff recorded can be removed and left at home whne entering USA. (bare phone for customs inspection)
Not so rare. In Canada we had 3 to 5 inches (deeper than the finger peephole) of ice (from breath condensation) in a centrally heated house at 80 deg F on inside of windows. Rectories in England as luxury comparied to this.
As I read contracts, I have just read the whole 38 page judgement. The judge was scathing about the UBER Lawyers trying to avoid their legal duties and trying to outwit their "workers". This will go to appeal by Uber I am sure, but the union concerned has to get full marks for taking on this task. If you employ someone and try to disguise employment of 'worker' by obscure wording this judgement will tell against you if you write such stuff after today.
No. Only five farthings for all past transport.
At the age referenced the senile degradation (outside medically qualitatively examined and confirmed dementia), makes me feel the first thing police should have done was a medical check of his mental acuity and senile onset. I do not understand why his defense [ advisers / lawyer(s)? ] did not raise this matter. Many when aged are good, some are incapable of correct thought processes and decisions and in this case it seemed loneliness was a major factor; hence internet dependency; almost like an acquired drug addition.
Police only prosecuting seems a 'I will only do the minimum to tick boxes' job.
KCL is not alone in "office politics can clog up progress more often than sheer ineptitude. "
When "The Company" about 4000 desktops/laptops uses a specified intranet with email to internet and internet capability via a 'closed firewall' with many different company sites; then company is excluded from 'sensitive' 'defence' jobs as it is insecure as they (GOV sensitive) want air gaped working cells with all IT equipment totally isolated from the internet. Not possible with a 'company control IT/Internet via only the intranet LAN, where IT service is controlled from an offshore (read cheap) location by non nationals. Result no government contracts.
Problem comes with solutions being worked on on a BYOD ('because that is how I have always worked it out!") which does not translate to company operated and owned computing gear.
I carry a cheque book for ATM/retail point failures. Offer a cheque. if they refuse advise them you have the means of payment and have offered it. If they keep the cheque , you will allow card transaction next time when they surrender the cheque
Due to bad corrosion and many trials of coatings on metals for one item open to sea, fresh water and all in between, the staff 'painted' over corrosion just before inspections. Eventually pain shell no innards. Replaced metal with wood( yes, a hard wood Lignum Vitae); it worked. Worked for many years between replacement versus 2~3 years for coated metals.
Humour. Like Mc, Mhic , Mac, M' , Nic (in Scots/Irish) it is a specific language sound, with meaning. I grew up in Scotland / Caledonia/ Scotia/ North Britain and our school gave up indexing pupils under "M" (too many started with a M variant) so indexed under next part of name e.g MacDonald was indexed under D . OK until university when we had many Africans with names like M'Bono who were lost when indexed under B. Usage rules. The Africans adapted!
Checho was what most Czechs used to me when I sojourned in Czechoslovakia in Soviet 'overrule days'.
"out of the air" and from under the sea.
No language allows 'rush' and 'courts' in the same sentence, However yes the UK can 'may appear to rush things', same procedure; cease to trade as a company , in UK 10 days , in Italy 7+ years in my personal experience. It was a cessation of an unincorporated joint venture where each party has to cease under its own laws.
Location of Head Office has NO IMPACT on any trading across actual borders. Subsidiary in say an EU country like Germany has two sets of rules a) An EXPORT outside EU, b) a DISPATCH to a country inside EU. At the moment all UK trade to EU and EU trade to UK is a Dispatch for customs & VAT purposes. After BREXIT all UK trade to EU and from EU is a normal EXPORT (it will cross the EU external boundary) [A dispatch crosses a National Boundary (say UK to Ireland, Netherlands to Germany ) but does not cross the EU Boundary. The Physical location of origin of goods is important the HQ and its registration is not.
