You can also LIMIT 0.

Apologies to whichever author I forgot who wrote something that I read and inspired this, but Penny who is good with swords ought to learn to swallow them. And then it's just a simple matter to swap the 'S' from the start of sword to the end for it to become a useful skill for a politician.
I don't know if I should upvote you or downvote you... "hostility to rooted phones"... have you ever tried playing Ingress when there's a spoofer active? The international and local coordinations required to put a multi-layered blue field over most of Europe... whilst some incel just sits in their bedroom and spoils all that effort through spoofing... boils my blood.
I noticed it in the CD section of Brighton library whilst browsing one day, way back in 1987. Saw the names... borrowed the disk... was enchanted by the utter lunacy, humour and charm of it. Over the years, whenever I remember, I try to get the DVD of the film. Haven't succeeded yet.
And the evidence goes further, m'lud. The defendant was identified from the CCTV images using a facial recognition algorithm.
A facial recognition algorithm?
Yes, m'lud. It's the practical application of an electronic system for rapidly scanning a collection of photographs of known offenders in order to identify a probable suspect.
Is it now? How fascinating. Amazing what they can do nowadays. Please, continue...
Thank you, m'lud. After being picked up by the police officers the defendant was found to be in possession of a deluxe model inflatable companion, whatever that is.
The deluxe model is the one with the genuine hair and realistic skin-feel.
You could stand there helpfully shouting PIVOT! at random intervals as they try to get it up the stairs.
Or alternatively materialise, say, a professor's office on a landing part way up the returning staircase and open the door so they could make the first turn before dematerialising again, leaving some poor chump to create a 3D computer simulation model to work out how to either get the now stuck object all the way up or how to get it back down again without cutting it up into smaller pieces.
Not to mention the sudden change in load which, between floors, shouldn't happen. In some designs of lift it's possible to stop it between floors just by a couple of people (or one hefty person) jumping simultaneously up in the air and landing heavily. Well within the total tolerance etc but the RAMP is what's important.
Why does this design smack of a wired connection? I mean, a dongle that plugs into a standardised connector e.g. USB and enables a wireless interface with the iPad / screen that can then be mounted to meet the user's convenience. It shocks me how similar things like the Tesla in car display is very much a tablet on an articulated holder. The lifespan of a tablet is what? 3-5 years? Of a car, 30 years to be conservative. A row of automotive rocker switches that can be serviced easily - 50 years plus. Replace / upgrade the computing component of a car... now you're taking a break from disposable consumer tech. Question is, do you actually need to do that? Apple's forays into mounting things are very limited. It's mostly up to third party suppliers to do innovative cases and mounts. That's all I see this as. There was a modular mobile phone mooted a few years ago.
