The compact camera itself is a compromised camera. Not much better than a good phone camera, nowhere near as good as a full frame or ever a 2/3.
DSLRs are going extinct very quickly now. The full frame mirrorless shows there is no need for flappy mirrors.
The thing about CDs is, you pay for them once on their storage media. You don't keep paying for them forever.
I own on CD probably about 98% of the music I'll ever want to listen to. I paid for it already, I don't want to have to pay for it again. Much of it came on very cheap used CDs.
It's all ripped and available wherever I need it.
I realise my way is not making more money for the artist and even more money for the music corporates.
BMW always offered the heated seats as a choice of a £350 one time forever payment rather than monthly, so this would have been exactly the same as choosing it from the options list. I guess very few took the monthly choice. Three years would have been a one time payment of £250, so £7 added to the monthly PCP payment which was probably at least £600 per month. Taking the £350 option would add about a tenner. I'm not sure if people are concerned about the odd £100 or £3 per month when speccing up a new BMW for £40k or more.
I guess it's just the idea of the never never. I actively avoid subscription, ongoing monthly wherever I can because I don't like the idea of my money being spent before I earn it. But it will be seen as normal for youngsters.
I think Ryanair brought back assigned seating because it makes it easier to split people 50/50 between the two sets of stairs.
Ryanair brought back assigned seating so they could separate families and people who were travelling together, they could then charge them money to choose seats.
70p/kwh is 23p/mile at 3mile/kwh.
£1.50/litre is 17p/mile at 40mpg. So even less in a Prius.
Thats the price at our local supermarket charge points.
Tesco charges 23p / kWh on 7kW chargers 40p on the 22kW chargers and 50p / kWh on their 50kW chargers.
Lidl Podpoint chargers are similar (bo 7kW tariff).
What supermarket is charging 70p?
I use it to get to France.
My kids use trains to get to and from Uni every few weeks.
Commuting from Birmingham to London or vice versa might become a thing for a few people who will probably have their desk on the train for part of the days. And the media will be making a big deal about them, and the thickos will be triggered. But most HS2 traffic won't be morning and evening commutes 5 days a week.
They will be the kind of same folk who are using the fast Kings Cross to Leeds/York trains right now on hte ECML.
I used to commute because everyone did it, and I thought it was just the way things were.
Then it dawn on me what a complete and total waste of time it was and became determined to minimise it as much as possible.
With covid my commute is completely eliminated and it seems moronic to me that I ever did it.
thought HS2 went from almost London to almost Brum, didn't actually quite get there at each end.
It's going to Birmingham Curzon Street where the original Robert Stephenson London and Birmingham railway terminated in 1838 until New Street opened.
At the London end it's supposed to go to Euston (where the Robert Stephenson L&B also terminated) but the last stretch across London has been put on hold. So it will terminate out in the West London suburbs until an unknown time.
When the L&B was opened in 1838, steam locomotives were not allowed to go deep into London, so the trains got as far as Camden, and were then cable hauled the remaining couple of miles.
There are two big old tunnel bores that are now over three quarters of the way through 10 miles of Chiltern Hills. Imagine abandoning that to sunk cost fallacy.
I ride the Eurostar over the HS1 route from London, through a very long tunnel and then through northern France to Paris. Right into Paris. It's been excellent for almost three decades? You'd have thought that it would have been closed down by now with all the mass deaths that keep happening.
Yes, in fact transaction logs grow large and the process to truncate them and keep them in trim is the backup. The backup writes the data off to another location. But the larger than usual transaction logs use up more of the space in the backup target volume which eventually fails. So the transaction log backups don't have enough space to write to, so they start failing. So now nothing is truncating the transaction logs so they grow and use up their volume (or file size quota). When the transaction logs can't grow anymore the DBMS stops doing stuff.
Or the transaction logs are set to a fixed max size and they hit that before the next periodic log backup.
You need to alert not only on remaining available space, but also on the rate that space is being consumed.
How does one "organize" data which has been "deleted" from a database? (I'm presuming "organized" in this case means, "re-organized".)
Some of the data was deleted.
Some of the data was organised (possibly moving datafiles or logs to different volumes).
Two separate actions allows sense to be made of the sentence.
We don’t have a competent government. Neither the incumbent or the party waiting to step in to have a go.
Never at any time I’m my life have I witnessed a decent term of government in the UK.
So when I hear these discussions where the two ideologies are pointing the finger at each other
I just think “shut the fuck up you bunch of gullible wankers”. Neither side has a leg to stand on.
@Throatwarbler Mangrove: nobody of any capability, competence or class would ever enter politics and therefore the only people who can achieve office of any kind are these narcissists and sociopaths.
It's a choice of vote for a moron or don't vote. As I understand it, this is not an unknown situation either here or on your side of the pond.
