Ah the heady days of Director
That brings back memories, I think I can still remember some Lingo.
The joys of building interactive CD's!

I don't think you've fully grasped how much normal folk hate Cummings. The witch hunt started years ago and was intensified when he released the Brexit lies. He designed and ran the Brexit campaign to leave, he's the reason Boris is in power. He has too much sway and is a self serving c**t, he needs to go!
"Why aren't there more female bricklayers? Do the same impediments apply?"
I think this where the comment in the article applies about the need to run for a generation tilted in the opposite direction. Classic barriers that have been around for too long will be the main reason we don't see more female "bricklayers", we have to spend time getting rid of those barriers and then seeing how many women want to be bricklayers before we can truly say that women aren't interested in being bricklayers, that all takes time.
We've started along the path of trying to remove those barriers (I think some sectors of industry need to try harder or at least start), provide more opportunities and eventually we will be closer to a more balanced workforce at all levels in regards to gender.
This is where the suppliers are winning, they hope that all customers go through a web channel to renew which usually ends up with a crap deal. In all cases phone up and haggle, if they have it built into their model the human at the end will be versed in getting you a better deal that isn't published on their site. That is definitely true of a certain TV satellite provider I know of and I have been able to get better deals in person with EE as well.
I've always gone with WfH, seems to be the most widely used in our outlook calendars (and I usually colour code these with green, not that is relevant).
I'm now thinking I might bugger off at lunchtime to WfH for the afternoon, obviously in the interests of testing the impact of using WfH.
... she knew that as soon as she produced anything in that role the gig would be up and they would know she was a fraud.
The hole looks like it kept getting bigger and bigger until she ended up in a tribunal as there was nowhere else to go with the lie.
The alternative is that she was just plain bats$@t crazy.
... I've had a Samsung Note 10.1 since about 2016 but recently I bought a 2-in-1 HP Envy (always need a laptop) and I hardly use the Note tablet now. Between my Note 8 phone and the laptop the tablet seems superfluous (just as well, seeing as it doesn't get updates anymore, might have to cook it to get more life from it).
... have said to some techie, we need to burn a DVD, closely followed by said techie grabbing the corporate credit card and running out to buy a DVD burner.
We don't have any in our office anymore and the one I had in storage at home gave up the ghost, not got round to replacing it, not sure I will. Strangely ironic now I think about it, as I used to spend my working day building DVD masters and then reading a book while I kept an eye on 20 DVD duplicators whirring away... starting to feel old...
The Note will notify you if the stylus is too far away from it. Of all the NOtes I have had over the years I have never lost the stylus (I've lost a few replacement nibs though, as they are impossibly small to find in a carpet).
There is a lot of people on here whinging about the specialised bits and how in their day they could build more stuff without the specialised bits. Clearly you lot have a limited imagination, the specialised bits mean even more creativity, you only have to look on pinterest to see the art of the possible, some truely talent builders using those specialised bricks in imaginative ways
Sailed past this a few times. There was a rumour doing the rounds that she was carry an a-bomb for us to drop on hitler, hence they don't want the ship to explode.
It was also said that the explosion would be large enough to cause issue with Canvey island which has a few refineries on it.
Unlikely there is any truth in any of them, but this ship has been there for awhile so has had plenty of time to build up some urban legends.
The problem with these systems which is what the civil liberties is heading towards with their statement is that the lack of data around useage is due largely in part to the systems the store the footage have no formal governance built into them.
Most public sector organisations struggle with governance on an IT system at the best of times which is why you need an IT system to enforce it on the staff using it. These systems have some basics like expiration periods (e.g. footage is deleted after 30 days unless tagged for evidence), but they don't capture other data like checking out a file for use or if it is being used for evidence attaching something like a case number or reference as metadata. Simple additional fields of data attached to a workflow would help build and enforce governance from a systems point of view.
Obviously you then have the argument of blaming the software makers/camera providers for not building this into their software. They would then turn round and say that it wasn't a specification the customer asked for and we're back to the earlier part of my comment.
What you mean letting an incompetent, inexperienced civil servant do a job that could potentially waste millions isn't the norm?
Don't worry though, if they do screw it up I'm sure those particular staff members at GDS will be banned from using their tax bought macs and Latte Mocha's for a week.
Reminds me of the HTC devices that used have the slide out keyboard, for good reason as well, they were running Windows Mobile and a hardware keyboard was needed. I can't quite see the point of adding a hardware keyboard when androids native on screen keyboard seems more than adequate.
Not really because your comparison doesn't in anyway answer the OP's proposition in which they state, smouldering hand luggage in an overhead locker vs pallet of batteries in the hold. The careful reading of the article meant it provided enough information for me to conclude that the volume of batteries in the hold compared to a few in the over head locker is the difference to why one fire could over whelm the fire suppression system and the other could have been managed safely.
I know what the BALPA directive says from reading it, but that isn't what is being talked about, so well done, 3 stars, but could do better.
(P.S. your getting a rant cause someone at work has pissed me off with their stupidity, again!)
With careful reading of the article it's not hard to imagine that a couple of batteries in a device in a bag in the cabin area is easier to contain than a pallet of batteries in their hundreds all going critical at vary stages maintaining an intense chemical fire for a longer period of time is why the fire suppression system in the hold get's overwhelmed and can't contain the fire.
Completely agree, there is no such thing as a free lunch.
I tend to ignore most ads unless they interfere with my scrolling ability on a mobile device. I've been suffering from banner blindness since the term was first coined.
As someone mentioned earlier, perhaps this is the stick we all need to get advertisers to produce non intrusive ads.
At the end of the day, it's IT, it won't be long before someone finds a workaround, whack-a-mole with Advertisers.
... Apple is just arguing the toss on price, it's what Apple does, I'm assuming the lower FRAND license cost means bigger profit margin per unit regardless of whether they have to throw a few millions at it in court to get that price. In the long term they would make those court case costs back on unit sales.
I got the reverse, I sold a basic scanner for 2 cargo space and if I wanted to buyback the scanner I would have made a 4 billion profit on the cargo space. At that point I thought something has definitely gone wrong.
Now if only something like that could happen in real life, I would definitely abuse it without a second thought.
I appreciate what you are trying to achieve, the layout is fine but you probably could have soften the blow by not flipping to so much stark white, as this is part of a phased approach I would have maybe phased your colour change in as well.
Look forward to what else you may do.
Out of professional interest, any chance you could share things like wireframes etc to see your thinking behind the changes (understand if you can't due to commercial sensitivity).
Quite a lot of the main stream vaporisers and cartomisers are brands produced by the major tobacco firms anyway. At no point were they going to let the nicotine market out of their grasp. If they aren't selling it directly in their own product then they are probably supplying the tobacco leaves by the bundle to other companies for their vap liquids, either way they will adapt quickly to the new market which by the looks of it is heading for a boom.
I can't see anything I'd disagree with in this review. From my perspective I've seen a massive improvement in quality but that is only because I have upgraded from a Note 2.
My only regret is that I'm now hooked on the stylus, if Samsung ever decide to stop the Note series my life is screwed I rely on it so much. I even have a Note 10.1, these are the only things I use now, with a combination of S Note and Evernote for writing things down.
Now if I could just get the postman to digitise my mail I would be in digital heaven and trees would love me (the paper industry wouldn't).
