Difficult to call them that now with all the changing rules from National Press and Publication Administration. No cult or superstitious games allowed so no Farcry series for China then and difficult to see how just about any RPG would be allowed, Blood was allowed so long as it was black but was recently outlawed completely. Definitely no visible skin but also no skeletons allowed, so skeletons have to be fully clothed and, err, not be skeletons. You may not “endanger social morality or national cultural traditions” which translates as "we can ban whatever we like" so clothing and locations in China must be 100% accurate.
Oh and no political message in any game, anywhere at all.
"Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of chess?"
Me too. I fail to understand why so many people in America have to describe themselves as though they are still a national of whichever country they or their parents migrated from. If your ancestors left Ireland in the mid-nineteenth century then surely by now you are simply an "American" as opposed to an "Irish-American"? Likewise "Egyptian-American"?
I should think that someone told Zuckerberg that forcing Facebook users to undergo a USB implant might be seen a as somewhat unfair breach of the user agreement. After the tantrums stopped Mark moved everyone to the "Bad News Office" (he has a Good news office and a Bad news office) and told them to stop funding.
Facebook are now understood to be buying data on anyone in the UK who has had colorectal surgery recently with a view to implanting the neuro implant "from the other end".
Been there, done that. Came downstairs one day after buying an AEG RX9 robovac only to find one dog maliciously peeing into it. I am now on the third one as 1 was replaced and one since failed to charge and now all 4 dogs (2 pugs and 2 labradors) appear to have declared war on it. This ranges from running in front of it, which causes the robot to keep deviating from its cleaning course, to sitting on top of the robot just as it is moving out to start cleaning, which causes it to stop and move back into its dock. Being barked at in unison just confuses the poor thing and it stops.
The ultimate was a very recent occurrence where a pug managed to leave a small message right in front of the TV since I had forgotten to leave the back door open for them to go in the garden and we returned to find said message splattered all over the floor, thanks to the robot. It has now been consigned to the place where all gadgets marked as "nice, but bloody useless" end up.
Be warned: The Husqvarna AWD robot mower is so powerful that it can shoot dog crap for some distance - I have seen this at a friend's house recently (same pug as it happens).
More likely to be seen acquiring skills with Timpson’s rehabilitation courses for prisoners.
My understanding of POCA is that they will take the house regardless of ownership if they determine that this was paid for, or improved, as a benefit of his crime. If he fails to cough up then he can be repeatedly incarcerated for anything up to an additional 14 years.
I have worked for a UK church organisation that did not so much hold daily standups but morning prayers, at which we would be praised for accomplishing completion of a Jira ticket or a prayer would be invoked, asking God to guide the hand of the developer in solving the blocker. Production deployments merited a special meeting where everyone would stand and contemplate for a moment before a prayer asking God to look down favourably upon the DevOps team.
My iPhone decided that with the last update that it would remove all Google Authenticator data and none of my 2FA settings had been backed up (it has to back up to Google cloud, not the Apple cloud). So just now I tried to log into a client portal and it wouldn't allow me in. Never mind the "Is it done yet?" Teams messages which I have circumvented by saying "Tech issue - ticket raised".
Now waiting on a nice lady in Manila at ServiceNow to unblock 2FA and let me manage to screw it all up again.
But what was the actual point of this manoeuvre? Was it to antagonise or test Russia into taking action so that we can say, "Ooh look at the nasty baddie." If it was a simple test of the TSS then surely a Ukrainian vessel could have done this, with significantly less fanfare and publicity? Or perhaps that is what they wanted.
Next up: Russian fishing vessels are seen fishing in British waters.
