Could BYOB (Bring Your Own Battery) offer a solution for charging electric vehicles? Microlino seems to think so
Re: Hits the sweetspot for me
I think it's because the Mini E weighs about the same as a small building. When I checked it's about 150kg heavier than my Cooper SD.
I have no way to install a fast charger at home, so a Mini E would take a whole weekend to charge.
Living rurally there's not a whole heap of charging points available either...
Hits the sweetspot for me
I love the idea of the Microlino, it's right in the sweetspot of price and range for me, I could drive to work and back for a whole week, then leave it to charge over the weekend.
The Mini E would be fine except the 120 mile range isn't quite a week's worth of commuting, and it's astonishingly expensive
Yep, The Bill & Melinda Gates foundation helped substantially in the effort to wipe out polio.
Warren Buffet is at No 10 in the list and he's pumped a lot of his money into the foundation, the other 8 on the list appear to be more interested in feathering their own nests, or islands in the case of Larry...

Software engineer jailed for 2 years after using RATs and crypters to steal underage victims' intimate pics
That Sexual Harm Prevention Order will seriously impact him for the rest of his life, as there's so many jobs that require a DBS check and that Sexual Harm Prevention Order will be a massive red flag.
I can't see him getting any worthwhile employment for decades.
So yeah, only 9 or 10 months in the big house, but many years of being messed around by The Man in his future.
Re: Tried Avira...
It's only recently been subsumed into Norton, so in all likelihood it was independent when you tried it.
To be fair, it was pretty decent years back when I tried it for a year or two.
Nowadays I use Sophos, but I'm seriously tempted to boot that too and just use Defender on my Windows machines
Re: Words Fail Me
Look at your workplace:
Does each department know what kit they use?
Does the senior management know what each department uses?
Now multiply that by every division in every department within every ministry of Government.
I'd be surprised if a competent Government even knew how many Windows licences they hold, never mind the shower of shit in charge at the moment...
French telco tycoon Patrick Drahi ups Altice UK's stake in BT to 18%, says he is not planning a takeover... at least not yet
Not so good when the storm also takes out the only available cell tower.
Or as happened during Storm Desmond, the power outage is so prolonged (4 days in our case) the battery backup on the tower died and generators ran out of fuel.
We were forced to drive 10 miles to Morecambe and use the feeble signal coming across the bay from Grange to phone family to tell them we were safe.
Re: 4G, 5G I'll take fibre
Where I live, every time Openreach (usually Murphy Telecom engineers) come round to do anything they spend half a day figuring out which box we're connected to, then the second half of the day scratching their arses.
The next day a second team arrive, spend the morning finding the box etc...
Re: 1920 x 1080
Anything higher than FHD on a 14" screen actually makes stuff too small to read for most people, so they'll set screen magnification to 125 or 150% and negate the higher resolution.
Having higher resolution just for the sake of willy waving in a business laptop is akin to having a 200mph car to sit in traffic on the North Circular...
UK Department for Education to schools: Maybe delay signing that 3-year licensing deal for MIS with Education Software Solutions

Sheffield Uni cooks up classic IT disaster in £30m student project: Shifting scope, leadership changes, sunk cost fallacy
A decade ago I was working at a security industry exhibition at the NEC.
Samsung had a huge hi-def screen that took up most of the rear wall of the hall. The engineer had just finished configuring it and decided he'd definitely earned a little R&R, so he settled down to watch some adult entertainment on his laptop, forgetting he was still hooked up to the huge video wall...
System at the heart of scaled-back £30m Sheffield University project runs on end-of-life Oracle database
At a guess it's a system that handles all interaction with students, so it'll need to plug into UCAS for a start.
It will need to interface with all the academic departments, it will need to interface with all DfE systems, it'll need to interface with the company running the cafeterias, and the Halls of Residence, probably all the student housing companies as well.
Then it will need to work with the various careers agency systems as well
Probably half the cost will be consultants who specialise in all those areas
Microsoft touts Windows 11 SE: A locked-down OS to give Chromebooks a run for their money in schools
Re: I bet...
Would you really want to do those things?
The laptops are running Atom processors, they're designed for schoolwork and Teams.
Considering the last batch of laptops we bought for pupil use cost us close to £600 and are way over spec for the job at hand, I see these as a real boon for schools.
Their popularity will depend very much on the Apps available to deploy via InTune...

Re: Really odd...
Kids lose ID cards, along with pretty much everything else, so we gave up issuing them to anyone below 6th Form.
We thought of going the NFC route with phones, but we're trying to discourage phone use, not increase it, so we've stuck with fingerprints and regularly cleaning the readers. For any kid that doesn't want their fingerprint storing, that isn't a problem, our canteen staff remember them using their own built in facial recognition brain.
We have 1,000 kids in school, around 60% have school meals and they're all served in around 20 minutes...
Re: Standalone versions need an MS Account
The standalone apps don't need an internet connection to work, especially if you're also saving lcally.
With regards to a MS account, there's usually no need for one if you're installing whilst offline, disconnect WiFi and/or network cable during install and both Windows and Office usually skip the MS account check.
