Re: How did they find out it was China?
I imagine that those pointing their fingers have access to rather more sophisticated tools than Whois . . .
I'll get my foil coat to repel the heat which is not uncommon in July in the UK.

I have no doubt that the Redmond retards sold the whole MS clusterfuck of apps, namely Sharepoint, Teams, O365 and OneDrive to cunts like my employer on the basis of insidious monitoring tools being available. I used to get productivity bollocks emails from some centralised shit spammer which told me how much time I had available for collaboration or some other bullshit until I unsubscribed. That was all the time I wasn't sitting at my fucking desk interacting with shit like Teams because I don't sit at my fucking desk all the time staring at Teams you fucktards! The dorks who get paid 6 figure salaries at my workplace probably don't even know how to do a fucking sum in Excel or make a table in Word - although to be fair that is still challenging for those with an IQ of less than 120 and I do work in higher education. They like using Excel with pretty colours though, mainly pastels, nice.
Indeed. Until recently Sony was clearly of the opinion that no-one using a smartphone wanted to or needed to shoot raw which was one of the reasons I moved on from my XZ which was excellent in all other respects. No-one really wants to edit a jpg, any more than anyone wants to edit an mp3 or any other compressed i.e. compromised file format. Given that smartphone manufacturers are keen to appeal to photographers by providing manual modes which enable selection of shutter speed and ISO whilst still rather limiting aperture control - I assume because of manufacturing limitations - raw capture should be a given I think.
I'll get my film covered coat.
I quote from a report on the BBC's news website:
A draft version of the Cornwall Economic Recovery and Renewal Plan was presented to the council’s economic growth and development overview and scrutiny committee on Tuesday.
Councillor Richard Robinson said there was "a stamp of Orwellianism that worries me somewhat".
He drew attention to one recommendation which states: “We should not allow a rise in traffic back to levels we had previously, cycling and walking should take precedence.”
Now this would all be fine if there were adequate traffic free routes between the major - and boy they are becoming major - conurbations but there are not and it's unlikely that there can ever be. What impact do these idiots think their ideas about "traffic levels" would have on tourism for example. Many of us living here would love it if the emmets would just fuck off, but many do depend on their patronage for their livelihood.
Cornwall County Council is a shambles and much of my council tax is spunked on pointless "initiatives" so I am not surprised to read this article.
Where I work we're being encouraged to "embrace the modern office" which includes Teams. I fucking loathe it. We've managed without it for years. I hope it stays borked or can be further borked by some little dweeb out there. I don't even want to think about privacy when it comes to all the data Redmond can slurp.
Why do we need even more nanny state from those pricks in Brussels? Can't they spend some of the obscene amounts of money they spunk on ridiculous projects like trying to curtail climate change on helping people in the 3rd world have fresh water and somewhere safe to take a shit?
I quite enjoy skipping between BT, EE & Plusnet for my broadband & taking advantage of whichever sweetener they're offering in the knowledge that my broadband will still be 80mbps down & 20mbps up & that my 4G will be available on Bodmin Moor in case I get bored of the scenery; which is unlikely. Living in the Republic of Kernow has its advantages, but it's full so don't even think about moving here any time soon.
The University of Exeter has a presence in Cornwall at Penryn where it shares a Campus with Falmouth University so I think that is what was meant. The University transports some of its staff around in large cars with UOE number plates; very nouveau riche. If you follow the link you included in your piece . . . .
My LG G4 is by far and away the best Smartphone I have ever had and I have owned Samsungs, a Motorola and two HTCs. The LG smartwatch I have is still working after over 2 years of daily use. Maybe you were unlucky. My Samsung S4's on/off switch failed after less than two years and the other one I owned suffered badly from dust ingress. I like to be able to stick a micro SDXC card in my 'phone and replace the battery if I want to. Have a lovely weekend.
Or we could just give the police the right to tell your selfish neighbour to shut the fuck up or go to jail - now. I dream of all the selfish cunts in this world suffering unimaginable pain in the next or even better instant retribution. Selfishness is one of the greatest malignancies blighting the 21st century and if there is a god then it's failing to wipe out the selfish. No wonder I'm an atheist.
The battery life has never been a constant worry on my G4 which I have had since last June, and the 'phone is running Marshmallow, having received an OTA update, on an EE 4g contract. The camera is the best I have ever had on a 'phone and I love the dng option. The screen is amazing, I can swap out the battery, I have a 64gb card in it. What's not to like? I won't buy another Samsung 'phone as the two I have had have been a disappointment. The Tocco - remember that? - suffered from chronic dust ingress and the S4's power switch failed after less than 2 years - POS - and the camera was shite. My G4 could be a keeper.
As PV or Solar Farms as the f**king tree huggers call them are spreading across Cornwall, I wonder how long it will be before someone hacks these for "fun". The sites look like concentration camps with their fences and CCTV. The only benefit is that they are wildlife havens although I expect they do manage to generate a couple of megawatts . . . which cannot be stored. Why not divert some of the millions wasted on AGW research towards energy storage. I will get my coat as it's still quite chilly here.
It's all hot air, and what a lovely mild winter we're having? I hope all those warmist freaks fall on their swords when the next ice age sets in. No they won't, because they are spineless liberal retards who probably eat too many vegetables and create more than their fair share of hahaha "greenhouse" gases via flatulence and whilst driving their fucking hybrid vehicles with their precious little retardlets strapped into the back smearing saliva over their fucking iPads. Yeah, coz it's their prerogative to breed isn't it? Unchecked population growth is the biggest "threat" facing planet earth. Even pseudo-intelligent people acknowledge that. look forward to reacquainting myself with a Lee Enfield 303.
