Yes, it's always someone else's fault. It's the "someone (else) has to pay" mentality. I put it in the same bracket as the ambulance chasers. When will people finally understand that these corporations don't produce their products for your benefit - they produce them for the company to make as much money as humanly possible off the easy targets.
That is why you have to have your wits about you to prevent them from doing so.
"If there were any courier companies, any at all, that had the slightest clue about how to deliver goods to households, at times that were convenient to the receivers - not based around the hours that the couriers preferred to work?"
Hmmm..... I wonder what could possibly be the reasons that none of them do??? Cost could be one. Requiring a lot more drivers and vans delivering the same number of packages but wasting lots of time driving backwards and forwards round the same areas to cater for all the different delivery times requested by the individuals. Obviously, you've never worked in logistics to know how that's never going to happen. Why do you think the post office doesn't do it either.
They have set rounds that have to take into account traffic patterns, one way systems, parking to unload, etc. and the vehicles have to be loaded in reverse order so that they don't have to keep moving stuff to get to the stuff they have to deliver first. If they have to keep having to go back to areas they've already been to just to cater for individual requested delivery times, it could potentially take them several hours to get back to them and they wouldn't get all the deliveries done.
Courier prices would need to increase dramatically to cater for all that as, potentially, it could mean that they are only able to get a quarter of the deliveries done within their permitted driving hours!
"The K used to be 1024"
Wrong! The K is short for Kilo - which is 1000 (of anything)! If they wanted a measure for 1024, they should have called it something else! That's where the error is! - Same goes for Mega, Giga, etc.!
Phew! I! must! have! been! spending! too! much! time! on! Yahoo! lately! with! all! these! exclamation! marks!
I don't know about for other devices but Permission Manager works just fine on my GT-N7100. It just provides an interface to the switches that are already available within the device, it's free and doesn't require any permissions.
I don't have to worry about the Facebook app. as, apparently, my phone and post code don't exist! So I have to use the webpage anyway!
"Who says only whole litres are sold on the continent?"
Very true. You can generally get:
1000ml (1 litre) [note the correct spelling of litre, for our American friends] ;-)
but you'll have a hell of a job getting a 568.2463ml measure m'boy! (1 pint [UK])
I'm still trying to work out how, if there is a limit on my unlimited Data and Texts and Calls, they can get away with calling it unlimited!?! I must admit though, I haven't managed to hit any of the limits yet and I can set up alerts myself for different percentages of the data usage online. (JT)
Aside from the benefits already mentioned, there is the additional benefit that it would allow us to glow in the dark! (From all the toxic waste that the fish will have consumed from all the shit we throw away).
Although it will be getting harder and harder to follow that route (of eating fish) due to the continuing decline of the marine environment caused by too much unsustainable commercial fishing methods and the previously mentioned shit that we keep dumping in the sea! All in the name of profit (of the few).
It might if it can beat the dynamic range (so that a pin dropping is not the same volume as all the instruments being bashed with bricks simultaneously). Not that my ears are capable of hearing the full dynamic range (or total frequency range) any more after years of listening to music being played far too loud without the use of earplugs!
Shouty, shouty - as you'll have to shout for me to be able to hear you these days!
