Re: Exactly

The English are the biggest pack of whingers on earth?

Of course we are. We can put up with the Knobs with a smile on our faces. That is what makes us superior to knobs like you. An English foetus could swallow the letters in the alphabet and shit a better insult. But don't worry, once you grow hair in your pubic region, you will be different. (Oh, just go and ask an adult)

Which also happens to be the name of my local pub until it closed a couple of weeks ago.

They are just bitch slapping each other. Just stir it up and leave them to it. One day they will reach puberty and learn. (Says me)

@ Jake

A borrowed os? MacOS and Linux bear one thing in common. They are both bastardised free versions of Unix. The only reason I run Mac is because I can't get the software I need if I used Linux. Otherwise I would have a difficult decision to make. And you whinge on about others whining? And they made how much? It's a business, they make as much money as they can.Of course if it was your business you would cut your prices and profits and your pay wouldn't you. Well wouldn't you?????

In the meantime, fuck computers and operating systems and all the rest of the bullshit that goes with it.

To you and all the other comentards, Please stay safe.

Things will get better

now that "Sir"Jony Ive has been fucked off. He was in charge of design for years despite not being able to spell his name correctly. Still, I expect him to do well for himself in his new business. Called "Love From".

Hey, China. Maybe you should have held your hackers off for a bit while COVID-19 ravaged the planet. Just a suggestion

London court tells Julian Assange: No, coronavirus is not a good reason for you to be let out of prison

@Zolko

He shit on his mates that put up money for his bail for a start. Would you trust him?

Then because he is a coward he imposed his own prison sentence instead of proving his innocence.

Extradite him. NOW. Wikileaks will surive without him. Well it has done so far hasn't it?

at the idiots buying antibacterial stuff. DUH, it's a virus.

And as for the bogroll buyers why did they not buy one of these…

https://www.gizmodo.co.uk/2020/03/panasonic-has-a-portable-arse-cleaner/

Snowflakes who are stupid enough to panic buy and pay stupid prices let them be. They will think different when their credit card statement arrives.

In the meantime it seems that the FRENCH of all people have got this panic buying thing right. They are stripping shelves bare of wine and condoms.

BT Openreach prepares to declare UK MBORCed* as all new phone line installations halted over coronavirus

idiottaxpayerhere previously ishtiaq/theghostdeejay

I know this

won't work for everyone, but a few years ago I got fucked off with Virgin. I closed my account and until I found another supplier I temporarily used my phone as a hotspot. I still do. It streams Netflix in Hi def just fine. All for 18 and a half quid a month unlimited everything. No visits required.

Re: I wonder

@ A/c

I can see why you are anonymous. You really do not have any idea of what you are talking about do you. Are you 9 years old and using your mothers account?

If you were into what we do in our business, you would see that we know how to use our tech. We don't need to know how it works.

Yes. We use dual boot to run Windows when we play games, and Parallels for running other software.

Re: I'd love to know the rationale...

@ Zolko

I have run Macs for over 30 years. (Yes, I am an old fart). I cannot remember Apple ever doing a "forced" update. Though, no doubt, I will now be proven wrong.
