Except that some printers will preferentially take a sheet from the manual feed, if it detects one.

Re: Now for the fake Indian call centers
BT will never do this. They simply have no incentive to track the legal entity for caller ID, so they don't.
Only when they are made legally responsible for losses due to the caller not being identifyable will this change. I've heard of at least one scam where the scammers faked a real bank telephone number
Re: The charger numbers seem a bit low.
The wailing isn't reported. Just look at gridwatch over winter, when there's no wind (again). Every interconnector, every coal station, even the open-cycle gas turbines, are all running full blast. It gets seriously squeaky on many evenings. Add EVs to the mix, lose the remaining coal stations, a nuclear station stops (which we're due for) and there are going to be power cuts - sorry "demand management".
Keep them salaries down!
You can't have high salaries paid to those greasy coding oiks! So lets make it even easier to undercut the local talent, and ensure that it is really pointless getting a tech degree in the UK, which will maintain the "talent shortage".
This temporary pain of paying very high salaries is simply the market working as it is supposed to, just not in the interest of our corporate overlords.
Re: From the cheap seats: NO SACRIFICE IS NEEDED (and you KNOW China will not do it ANYWAY)
The renewables talk is just that. Whilst playing with solar, they are continuing to support their economy by using cheap, plentiful coal. They will only switch to solar when it makes economic sense. In the meantime, we kill our heavy industry with comical energy costs.
Re: I'm in two minds about this, because it ignores the elephant in the room
Rubbish. Otherwise you could create a news site by just scraping and collating other news sites, for example.
The principle that content on the web can only be consumed in accordance with the license, and not freely copied and republished is well established.
See for example here.
The woeful wifi support for more than a select few cards is a pity. As is the poor support for non-intel LAN adaptors.
What's infuriating is the folks on the forums, who, when asked about network hardware not on the golden list, instruct the asker to "stop using poor-quality hardware, and get a proper Intel Lan adaptor/weird-but-supported wifi card"
The LAN thing is particularly grating, as BSD (in pfSense form) utterly fails at gigabit internet with non-Intel cards, yet these "low-quality" cards work fine under Linux.
