Have you tried Claws ?
I need a phone that's not too large, has a replaceable battery, SD card slot, headphone socket, preferably Dual Micro size SIM, current Android OS, not too expensive.
Did I find one: Yes, nearly all the above.
It's Nano SIM, trimming of existing SIM required (I opted for single SIM because I couldn't wait)
In the box, a USB charger, USB lead, and a set of ear-buds.
Price: a miserly 59 GBP delivered.
Happy Bunny is me.
Note: the Dual SIM version has 3 slots, and isn't 2nd SIM/SD like some.
What is it ?
Oh, a Nokia 1, that's what.
Demanded: yes, by PHBs in manglement, and marketing who lack clue one.
Anything can be conveyed in Plain Text, you just have to have a good command of the English language.
Have you never come across the concept of shared drives ?
Ban them, remove the facility to send them from email clients.
Then they can only send Plain Text.
Remove the facility to read them from email clients.
Then they can only read Plain Text.
Thank deity, I did find the link back to the original home page
What is it with manufacturers ?
I thought I'd found my next phone.
But in a 6" phone they couldn't provide 2 micro SIM slots, and a separate SD card slot, why ever not, Samsung managed it years ago with the B5722 :(
Even Wileyfox managed it, all be it with Nano SIMs, in the Swift.
For those suffering from the Truecaller disease, ZERO Dialer is your friend.
I'm surprised that nobody has made this comment.
The units described sound an awful lot like preproduction prototypes.
Just a random thought.
Your printer is listed as supported by HPLIP.
Try Zero Dialer as a replacement.
In Settings>Apps>cog>Configure apps set 'Phone app' to ZERO Dialer
Sorry, I can't remember if there were any more steps,
but that worked on my Swift 1, after it downgraded itself to 7.0.1
Not quite sure where you're coming from on this.
I have been submitting my VAT returns on-line via the web portal since July 2012.
The form is very similar to the paper one I filled in previously.
It would appear that HMRC are being two-faced over the IR35 legislation.
They actually have IT contractors working for them who operate through PSCs (Ltd), and are declared to be outside the legislation, and do not have to pay additional Income Tax, and NI beyond what is normal for their PSC. The major point of interest is that their contracts do contain the right of substitution clause, which this news presenter could hardly have present in her contract.
The other point that no one seems to have commented on.
There is an upper limit on contract length : 2 years, exceed that, and different rules apply anyway.

Gawd help the butcher if he'd had to use the black pudding in the caption picture.
The one he used (a frozen one) was straight, so he had no problem aiming at the release button.
Somebody Else's Problem
No headphone jack, no SD card slot, no replaceable battery, no decent dialer app, more than 250 GBP, no sale.
First they didn't do due diligence when someone other than me asked for EE broadband on my BT phone line, just went ahead and converted it.
Then they gave away my T-Mobile number to someone who purported to be me, or had fake paperwork authorising the transfer. Then when I complained, they refused to do anything about it, telling me that I would have to present myself at the branch, 180 miles away, to sort it out. They weren't even sure that that branch was the one where the deed was done.
Shakes head in disgust.
"90 per cent of attacks begin with someone clicking on an email... We need to protect people from their bad habits," he noted.
Perhaps spending some of your billions to produce a decent, standards compliant , properly threading, HTML free email client, would a very good start.
Before I read the article, I thought it might be about The Doctor's alter ego, or Sarah Janes' computer :(
Says it all, doesn't it.
Such a shame it includes systemd, ah well, perhaps they'll wake up and smell the coffee.
"next time, you simply "paste" it into your email, makes it much more readable."
No, don't encourage incompetents, please teach them how to attach such files,
not "paste it" into the email. Yes I know it's more steps but...
Pie in the sky more like (sorry Richard).
Friend of mine moved into an area where Virgin was not available.
She ignored my advice about not choosing sky...
Telephone socket already fitted.
Sky wanted 200GBP upfront to supply service.
Order placed 30 July.
Installation date 30 August.
30 August Sky guy fits dish & q-box, doesn't mention q-box won't work properly without BB, says he can't do anything with the BB, and leaves.
6 September BTOR guy says can't fix, need Cherry Picker because pole is dangerous.
13 September I arrive, ring Sky, told no action from them until 25 September.
Threats of cancellation produce promise of action on 19 September.
19 September Cherry Picker arrives, complete new box+cables to pole installed.
20 September told underground fault, can't fix until 25 September.
Will not need further access.
20 September Sky promises refunds+free service but still takes DD.
Update on Monday.
Lord only knows what would have happened if she had asked for fibre.
Meanwhile still no phone line for emergency service access, and yes, they were told.
There are replacements for your Arc,
Titanium/RapidO Ti - http://www.rcomp.co.uk/ http://www.cjemicros.co.uk/ http://www.elesar.co.uk/
ARMX6/RapidO Ig - http://www.rcomp.co.uk/ http://www.cjemicros.co.uk/
RasberryPi - As above + https://www.raspberrypi.org/
And a good few others, just (google) RISCOS hardware.
Apologies for not mentioning all the others by name.
A year, why the hell is it going to take over a year to implement ?
How about repairing damage to eyes ?
Oh, look, all the staff we had maintaining this site have left because of something or other.
It couldn't be anything to do with IR35, could it ?
We didn't apply those stupid rules to them, did we ...
Is this the mountain/cog railway described in Julian May's Intervention ?
If it is, how close are the descriptions please ?
Inquiring minds wish to know.
A more appropriate response would be "We shouldn't have done this. The manglement responsible have decided to seek fresh opportunities elsewhere.".
A shame that it probably won't happen (I can hope can't I ?)
When it first was released (I haven't checked it since, but I doubt it has changed), the only question that was of significance was 'Are you allowed to substitute', it didn't matter what you answered to the rest.
If you answered 'Yes, I am', then you were outside IR35, if you answered 'No, I'm not' then you were inside IR35.
From what I can see, this is the usual heavy handed approach from HMRC, relying on the agencies, and some public organisations allowing themselves to be bullied, instead employing some capable lawyers, and forcing the issue, relying on the evidence, & results from the last time HMRC tried it on.
There are public organisations who have stuck two fingers up to HMRC, and told them quite plainly 'NONE of our contractors fall within IR35'.
I would like for someone who is close to Jeremy Corbyn, to ask him to publicly promise to repeal IR35 as soon as he takes office (Hey I can hope, can't I).
A 'gun range for the blind'
Definitely a LOL moment there.
You could go to Plusnet. Yes, I know that they have had a slating recently for crap customer service but...
I've been with them for internet only since 2005 ( perhaps earlier), and have just moved my phone service as well. Business use, was paying 250 per quarter for two lines & internet. Went down to one line, now paying 76 per quarter all in, with unlimited calls (UK & Mobile).
Worth considering ,YMMV.
The Windows 95 user interface was widely recognized as superior to anything else available.
But it is a poor copy of another UI, with most of its features either missing or implemented badly.
No expandable memory, no removeable battery, & no headphone jack.
Three times the price of the Wileyfox Swift which has all the above.
Mine lasts 4 days on one charge.
Shirley not ?
Playing Live streams on your phone, maybe ?
DTP for Windows - try Ovation Pro
Yes, I know it's unstable :)
How about Christopher Eccleston
Ah, no the original is
Acorn RISC Machine
You need F.B. Purity http://www.fbpurity.com/
1) Reject HTML emails as SPAM
2) Don't click on email links.
3) Don't open email attachments.
4) Trust no one.
Not here :-
Welcome to Cable My Street!
It doesn’t look like our cables reach your corner of the country just yet. But by registering your interest, you could help bring Virgin Media services to your area!
Not likely to happen :( (the cabling, that is)
Can't help with your W10 issue, but as far as updating your TomTom goes,
install Virtualbox on your Mint machine, and run a minimalist guest of XP, or
W7, no need for W10 then. Works for me.
Most of the exploits require it to obfuscate what they are doing.
So remove the ability to send them, and set the email client to only read in Plain Text mode.
Hardly rocket science.
Might be worth looking at Claws Mail with the vCalendar plugin.
@ Charlie Clark
Not bloody likely.
I do have other options.
If enough people who matter abandon it ...
On esr, had to rollback to 38.8 after the 45.2 replacement disabled all my add-ons (possibly not CTR), without any chance to abort.
Looking for a good replacement, with devs who care about the user, not Chrome, Otter, or Qupzilla.
Realistic suggestions for 64-bit Linux please.
Yes, 'twas aimed at you. Thanks for the info, much appreciated.
Further Q. What easily available brands on sale in the UK, might you recommend please ?
Would you enlighten us on the location please ?
What is the name of the brand on sale in the UK please ?
Some typical prices would have been useful.
Isn't that why we use computers to do it for us ?
