Re: Checked my phone
Yes they are, and to be honest it is hard work to call someone.
Much easier on older phones.
Takes nearly a minute on my latest one.
Checked my phone
Facebook installed and slurping.
Never started it, not on any menus, where did it come from?
So uninstalled it.
My phone already has a decent messaging system on it and also a semi usable voice chat system.
However voice chat is clunky and not a patch on an old Nokia N8 I am trying to resurrect
BBC 6 is BBC 1 SD
I have to turn mine up quite a bit over the
Tyre, engine, transmission, wind, suspension, hydraulics, noises
But I can still tell how good the source is like over companded and different CDs
Last digital radio programme I listened to (via Freesat) was his final show
Cars are priority
Main usage of radio is in cars.
When I was young we had independant local radio, small stations for your local area with local news, music and staff.
Then the big merger.
Last time I used them was on a motorway trip 5 radio stations all with different DJs playing the same songs.
Most channels now have inane DJs so now prefer chat radio to music.
BBC local OK in morning, but on trip home, recently replaced chat with old people music. Music from 60s and 70s for people old then.
Tried R4, it is either listenable or instant turn off. When something important is happening good, otherwise now lots of inane drivel. They once repeated the same article 3 times in a row with no gaps, was probably more but by then a CD was playing.
My biggest hate though is misuse of traffic announcements.
Listening to local news or traffic and traffic for London starts sprouting off and I cannot remember how to disable without manual. And I have to keep disconnecting battery while doing suspension repairs, (It has had 4 in last year, 2 to go), otherwise it could crush me*
* air springs and level sensors
Perhaps we need to
Block Faccebook in the national firewall for a day.
Watch FB panic then
Blood spilled from another US high school shooting has yet to dry – and video games are already being blamed
Protect from government
Well we have the following
Elections, can get rid of.
A Monarch, able to dissolve if required. Don't think ever used.
A military sworn to alliegance to said Monarch NOT government. So if government tried it on military would say no and their head would dissolve the government.
Perhaps it will become civilised over there if you rejoined the Commonwealth. Perhaps you could even have a President who is also a Royal!
Re: Video games
I play shooter video games.
So why haven't I been running around shooting lots of violent aliens in the face?
Done both Dishonoured and Dishonoured 2 with no kills as it was more fun evading and no fun killing innocent civilians.
One question to ask with lots of answers
How did the killer get his hands on the gun cabinet keys?
Our neighbour shoots and not even his wife knows where the keys are as stipulated by law.
Re: Get this round my area..
Seen household garden waste dumped over a wall into allotments, phoned up Police no interest whatsoever.
There is a nice BOAT on my commute, I use it on sunny days when not in a hurry.
Once saw fly tippers drive in as I left. Next time I see one I am going to bully them into the mud so they get stuck then drive off.
Or take pictures and get them to follow me, and of course they would get stuck!
Those are the sort of roads Solihulls finest can deal with errant vans, especially when in groups.
Were not bad
Still have a working radio cassette at 35 years old. Even has chrome and Dolby B.
Goldstar were a cheap brand but not too shoddy.
I rated them as one of the better cheap and cheerful brands.
No real competition at the time to the major Japanese brands but better than the pretend far east brands prevelant at the time.

"Bring the money or Cronus will meet you."
Why call them a bath room if no bath?
Lost relatives to it.
Nearly got killed by it (near RTA caused by ash in eyes at speed from car in front).
If vaping saves lives and saves on cancer surgery, good, just keep it regulated to avoid exploding vapourisers.
What use is it?
Compared to a Vive or PSVR?
This downdate is causing hell here
And why our next system WILL be multi platform.
Large custom written WIN32 application talking to a database server using various stuff over IP (I write the software but we buy in a popular server with native ISAM access and very well emulated SQL access).
Vertical market so big fish in a puddle.
Anyway the LAN changes have buggered up the data server client and stopped it working, and since SAP bought Sybase support has been ruined.
This update is fucking us over!
We have just had to put out a customer wide email as it prevents the client side of our database software communicating with the server.
Been using it for over 20 years, very stable, until W10.
And the company was bought by SAP who have ruined support.
A few 10 PCs in our office have been "updating" for a few hours and not yet usable.
FDISK and Windows 7 would be a great cure.
What cars people buy depends on a lot
If you are a fan of machines or not.
If you like sporty cars you will try to get one.
Just because someone is boring does not mean they are more likely to stick around.
Depends on bike
This is where a BMW rider would have an advantage
Re: We all recognise HP there...
altavista - first porn site I stumbled across
alta-vista was a search engine
Used to have an account
Ages ago to chat to someone, but deleted it when they would not stop spamming.
Turned off all spamming then got a sponsored spam one from someone supposedly well known I do not give a shit about so deleted the account.
I only followed a couple of game devs and have no interest in Z level "celebrities".
Why do I need one?
Got 2 3 4 here and I never play the 2 anyway.
Going a lot older, no, but I still have my VIC20.
But we also had a permanent opt out on Euro as Pound is still a major currency. Also had opt out on closer integration.
But we were still popular for our skilled high tech industries and major financial trading.
And how many leave voters realised that the EU trading capital would be moving from CoL?
My dad has seen the first one fly.
When he was last working the garage he worked at had another employee who worked on the production line,
Armed guards burst in and stopped them making parts, then took away tooling to destroy it.

I just remember in the 60s somewhere near Bristol, lots of traffic jams, to see a Concordet.
Sitting on the slip way of Lizard life boat seeing a small shape in the sky.
A Vulcan air displaying over Holyhead Island (and one year a double Hunter crash).
Most recently XH558 climbing over Pershore.
Re: "In the world of technology policy, Rudd will be remembered"
I hated school milk so that is a plus to me
Re: can anybody remember...?
I remember Ken Clarke
Best prime minister we never had in my opinion.
For a taste search on "Ken Clarke" "News international"
Re: Either a liar or incompent
Simply over her head and too May indocrinated.
Re: Sajids little helpers
I keep forgetting how to spell his first name despite being nearby to my constituency.
Anyway seems a nice enough bloke on the local radio, but then all the locals ones seem decent enough to me. The real idiots tend to be rejected at the ballot box.
But they do get over their head sometimes, they are only people.
He did used to run a bank so SHOULD be OK (we hope)
But he does appeal to
Small yellow intelligent creatures with goggles
Sajids little helpers
Will be along as well. Dave, Kevin & Stuart.
Sajid is Dara's stand in.
How is Martin Lewis getting along with his case?
Re: OK: Facebook is a bad boy ...
I block it with Greasemonkey, no way am I agreeing to that shit!
Captivity - stupid
There is an animal in our house which loves it there, it is fed, looked after, played with, taken on walks.
If we evicted it, it would come straight home again.
However it would not survive in the wild as it needs regular grooming, I cannot see our dog learning to trim her own fur.
Dogs, a human created species which loves living on our homes.
House cats, a small carnivore which has been bred for living with humans.
Two species who live with us as members of our families, not captives. So fuck off PETA!
Perhaps the picked up camera
was just a story to gain more publicity.

But the monkey is called Ella

Remember the Monkey picture and buy a copy
Phones are getting more annoying.
Nearly destroyed my current work Android a few times, as the POS will not unlock unless you do it very carefully, but of course I get rattier and rattier.
Camera is annoying, trying to zoom it out after zooming in and suddenly my face appears on the screen. Why the fuck do I want to see my ugly mug unless shaving?
Previous two are with sons, one is wrecked through being washed, the later one is OK as he doesn't wash it under the tap.
I really really miss my old Nokia Symbian phone, easy to use and a decent camera with decent lens.
I wonder what we will get next contract, lets just say I really hope it isn't Koreas biggest phone maker again.
Brexshit WILL be a disaster.
They all keep on about better trade agreements, best offer is same as we have in EU.
Lots of businesses will up sticks and move.
The EU WILL give grants to build new car factories in Eastern Europe for the Japanese manufactures to move to.
Lots of young people are looking to move over with the jobs.
Already been a few financial sector leaving parties as they head off to Dublin and Amsterdam.
Also I have noticed that quite a few leave voters have no idea why they voted out, one was worried about his job being given away to a foreigner (job is safe silly reason), anothe because we were NOT Shengen and Euro (WTF).
My personal view better to be in pissing out. Yes EU is bloated, but think of the trade, think what WAS the EU financial capital.
Re: Not just the space sector....
Let them know so they will reject him
MS should have done
A new WIN32 compatable phone.
But then it would have been seriously attacked by viruses.
Re: Could I interest the UK in...
We still have BoBMF

Re: In hindsight
And US depend on UK for
Large amounts of F35 parts
Can't be bothered to search for more but there are lots
Re: We should have invested in F136n programme
where did <space>engie go?
or was it <space>egine?
We should have invested in F136n programme
As above then would have been non issue.
Could we restart it?
Some people recommend getting pervy
That asking them willy size or propositioning them will get rid of them

Random person posting, no fees.
This is user generated content, this is what FB is _supposed_ to be about.
Posted out via advertising system, not a random post, paid, they do know about it otherwise how would they know to send it to everyone.
Facebook are guilty and they know it. It is NOT UGC but targeted ads.
