All too late

What happens next no longer matters. The damage had already been done. This whole process has diminished the reputation of our country to a point I fear is no longer recoverable. My heart cries

Re: It's amazing how it sticks

I had no time for the papers or the buses. My opinions were based on history and the troubled world we're plummeting towards. Did you read Trumps son's piece today? If you don't have a hot water bottle I recommend it to keep you warm tonight.

Re: It's amazing how it sticks

Not at all. Unlike many I haven't fallen out with them over their decision, it was their decision. I'm just glad they and you were not responsible for negotiating international trade deals. But there's the rub, and the irony.

It's amazing how it sticks

My family voted to leave, knowing their backgrounds (pretty damn well) it made no sense to me but the shit these people threw around stuck. Even now when I talk to them, despite what has become apparent, they still want out. No mater what aspect we talk about, pretty much all their arguments came off the side of a bus; despite the reality being laid bear with only a few days to go they cling on to the great trade deals that will come and being a great power again. and maddest of all the fallacy that the problems will vanish with the immigrants. Right from the start it was easy to identify which side was project FEAR

not quite the point

Traditional advertising was also targeted, but in the same way you can aim a shot gun over a sniper rifle. Mercedes would advertise in the Times, not the Holbeck Advertiser. What you have here is the extreme missus of personal data to actively break discrimination laws.

Re: Not sure the comparison is valid

Yip they do, but what they forget is. If it looks like a duck; walks like a duck and sounds like a duck. It is a duck. In this instance replace duck with turd.

Re: Why would they do anything?

Most of them actually see it as there god given right and it seems that it's getting worse. I recently had two shops try to get personal details from me, for a cheap pair of shoes and an over the counter medicine (anti stink foot powder). Both times they were shocked at my refusal, both times I explained they had no legal right to take my details and were in fact breaking the law by doing so. While I got my cheapo shoes at the pharmacy the manager was called and after i explain the situation to her she threatened to call security to arest me. So this is what they want and most of the time get away with. Also the reason I have none of these points cards for the big chains

Re: Year of the Linux desktop?

I agree, if you can set up your needs and workflow properly, nothing wrong with going full linux. Set up a call center a few months back with minimal cash. All the pc's were cheap second hand jobs (some unlicensed and all riddled with malware). Mint on them all,voip software and odoo as the back end sales/crm software (on an ubutu linode).

Cheap as chips and runs like a charm, job done.

Re: How I explain Brexit to children

They removed my comment defending our posts!!! Would complain to my MP but all things considered don't think that'll be much use. Will try and find out why, very interested to know who and what their justification was? Maybe it was Billy GreatBritain himself!!!

How I explain Brexit to South Africans

Been working over here quite a while now. Most people are totally confused by Brexit and what’s going on back home, so this is how I explain the impasse.

A bunch of kids have been playing football together for years. One day they meet up and Billy GreatBritain says he’s not happy with the rules and wants them changed. So the other 27 kids go off and have a long chat (except the Spanish kid who’s having a sleep after lunch). After much discussion (and a brief farting contest) they go back to Billy GreatBritain and say ‘No’. We’ve played by these rules for years and even stick to them when we play away against Johnny USA or any other of the international kids.

Of course Billy GreatBritain is not happy with this and throws a hissy fit (imagine spoiled brat whose never been told to say please or thank you). After much foot stamping Billy GreatBritain declares ‘if you don’t do as I say, I’ll take my ball home’. So they wake up the Spanish kid and go for another chat. After reaching a consensus they tell Billy GreatBritain, ‘Fine take your ball home because we own the friging stadium and we have shit load of balls’.

When they ask what a no deal Brexit would mean; I tell them Billy GreatBritain would have to stay home and play with his own balls.

Re: Users should pay to use Facebook

One of the reasons I was an early adopter and vocal supporter of whatsapp was the business model. Free for a year and then a $1 dollar a year after. I've always refused to have accounts with Facebook Twitter and the rest, as I saw them for what they were form the start.

Then Facebook saw their success and ate them. I know I'm going to have to dump it soon, even though I deny them anything with each new update (they make finding the final fuck off button a nightmare). I would have happily paid for a secure way to talk to individual contacts ( I leave any group the moment somebody adds me). But I have no option but to drop it; because my personal information is worth way more to me than one fucking dollar a year (or $0.10 in Fucks universe)

PS you may have guessed I have nothing but contempt for these thieves.

finger test

The stupid ones in South Africa do that. A couple of years ago I was at a friends house when 2 cops walked in the living room, one with his gun drawn. They were looking for a dodgy lodger who'd been kicked out a week before. It was a shake down as all they wanted was to know where the drugs and money were. They were also from the dog unit of different town. After informing these crooks that the gentleman (who I always referd to as worm) was no longer living there and we had no money or drugs on the premises ; they got a bit pissed off and started an illegal search. One of them pulled everything out of a cupboard and triumphantly pulled out a plastic shopping bag with white powder in it. He demanded to know what it was and my friend told him; to which the cop replied 'don't talk shit'. At this point he licked his finger, put it in the bag and straight in the mouth. Personally, I'v never had the inclination to taste scouring powder; but the memory of his face will always give me a warm feeling.

just to say

I did a reinstall on a friends dell laptop at the weekend. Reinstalled from the provided disk image, installed Office and ran (and ran) Microshaft updates, took about 11 hours on my 4mg ADSL. Then I installed Mint 18 from usb (image was about 18 months old) and ran updates, whole thing took about 90 minutes including updating ALL the software.

Makes you think.

PS Mint runs far smother for what she need, even office under WINE.

TOO big to fall?

Their fall is long overdue. The f****rs are nothing more than a pyramid scheme. Treat them as such. The users will find new ways to share their stuff, hopefully without so many chains.
