In a surprise to nobody ....
I particularly like :
He said: "However, with a shrinking churn rate and a better than expected 2.2% rise in organic service revenue investors were impressed, even if Vodafone still consistently tops ‘worst mobile firm’ polls in Britain."
I've just had one Ombudsman sanctioned "determination" in my favour ... and I have a second one in progress.
Still seems to work on 50.0.2661.102 m (64-bit)!
I'm a "backspace" user - who will have to feel the pain.
In the past I have unexpectedly "backspaced" from a page to another as I was typing, but I figured that was a bug in the text handling, i.e. when I'm "in" a field editing I don't want the "last backspace" to be directed outside of the "in focus" field - but it did.
So, I'll just learn to live with what I'm given here I guess.
PS. <Alt>+<Cursor Left> is NOT as convenient as <Backspace> - just sayin'
<interesting> <exciting> oh <sigh!>
Its been good and bad for me ...
Moved house from SO19 (1997-2009) to SO51 (2011-onwards)
- SO19 went from poor, unreliable 512K to a good and reliable (at one point "free" with Orange) 4.5M followed by fast 16M with BE and since I left the house ~70M via FTTC with BT
- SO51 a "solid" 6M :-(. Still no sign of FTTC available to my cabinet. Virgin is available but it appears expensive to me.
Of course, my consumption (mainly due to kids!) is MUCH higher than it was ... "praise the lord" for unmetered data!
On use of layers and translucency
Old hat now I know, but the Nokia N900 running Maemo used translucency to indicate that the "current" task was something happening without disturbing the place where "you" were before.
It extended to several layers if there were additional pulldown/popup choices could be made.
Very little "new under the sun" these days. A good idea, well executed, is still a good idea worth using.
