my tolerance is defiantly that 4hrs lon to cyprus on a single aisle.
any longer would be torture
lon to balearics is far more acceptable 2hrs.
last trip via ryanair i could smell burnt toast and looked like smoke in the cabin at the same time. easier to steady nerves for 2hrs instead of 4. i had to drive at the other end so no booze for me :(
i've done a lot of 8hr flights on wide body planes and get cranky after that but a few drinks helps to sooth the nerves, unless of course i need to drive at the the other end like when arriving back in uk.
Fed up of chasing other couriers for my packages,
With Amazon it’s always delivered on the day they say, Royal Mail take it back to some random place and attempt redelivery random days before taking it to a depot 30 miles away.
Evri decide they can’t find it
Dpd are Surly
Ups next day is actually 5 days.
Cassini had a go through the atmosphere, it wasn’t designed for that mission and ended up tumbling before it was ultimately destroyed as planned.
High temperatures and pressure would be tricky for any visitor, not as likely for survival as Huygens on Titan
Panasonic bought Kuro ~2009. People still rave about Kuro's even now.
i have 2 x Panasonic vierra plasmas (2007 & 2012) that are still going strong &show a great picture. I have a Panasonic vierra OLED too which is also extremely good.
Panasonic stopped making plasmas in 2013.
If you buy an OLED the screen is made by LG regardless of the badge on the box/remote/screen,
you jest but wasn't that long ago (ok actually it was) when people punched holes in tape or card for programming computers.
given the technological progression at the time, punched cards for programming was an obvious method
and of course there is morse code.
Musk is clearly determined to end twitter.
I see no reason why he didn’t just launch his new thing and incorporate the old with the old name.
A new twitter suddenly evens up the playing field with the also new alternatives.
People likely only stick to twitter because of recognition which is part of its utility, a ridiculous new name won’t help keep people about.
I'm not necessarily saying that an admin should consult the manual every time, but I would have thought that, just before sending a command that should reconfigure the entire network (not something you do every day, I guess), it might be a good thing to double-check and be sure.
sounds logical but the manual is normally thousands of pages long and often obscure language that means mistakes happen even though the manual has been consulted.
the only way to be sure is to lab it, not with all 80 switches but certainly at least 5 and see if the command does "behave" as expected.
VTP is something that sounds great but truly not.
Its like L2 domains with spanning tree everywhere, just do yourself and everyone a favour and migrate to routed links. spanning tree is the work of the devil and will kick you hard when it gets large
So long as you have line of sight to the sky, the phone will guide you on positioning and let you fire off messages to emergency services including your location.
it truly is a last resort but it is available today on millions of handsets
its even saved people already
not sure why this article is calling for something that already exists
i love reading about computing history & especially networking history.
its a suprise to many that concepts of what we do today originated in the late 1800's tdm having been used from the 1870's as an example.
how about fax machines being invented and used in the 1800's
we take for granted that things just work, i find the story behind it all fascinating.
Apologies for the guardian link but……
630 million litres a day lost just by Thames water.
That’s over half the powder mill reservoir lost every day, or the 31k mega litre (me neither) Bewl reservoir every 50 days.
Just stop the leaks then they won’t need permission for more reservoirs.
they are making the fuselage shorter so it'll likely weigh less.
would be interesting to understand what that 30% claim relates to because lighter plane plus more efficient modern engines is likely most of that 30%.
would be good to see a comparison of a modern 737-8 / a320 vs the md-90 its likely ~ 20+% already without spending a billion dollars on new wings.
"Those magic words and the explanation of the contract renewal issue made the entire CAB go from hostile to 'We agree with your description of BT's anatomy: changes approved!'"
I have seen issues like this plenty times before, normally a call to the BT/GC/VERIZON/AT&T/VODAFONE account manager sorts it especially if it’s only a month or 3.
Otherwise it’s poor planning on the PM’s side as if new circuits are being installed you’d also need to understand costs of decommissioning the old circuit including any unspent time on the contract.
Outside of the existing commercial use cases these goggles will be used by and for people participating in pr0n.
I do like the concept and they’ve thought about ui but it’s a lot of money and enables just 1 person to use it, typically in the comfort of their own home.
Certain websites will be throwing millions at providing content for this.
we all deserve a better solution to the Tory problem rather than something a little less bad but ultimately the same as we'll get with Starmer's party.
Can’t agree more, I really can’t see myself voting for any of the 4 main parties.
I’ll be eyeing up the independents in hopes they at least care about my local area.
None of this means technology cannot help the NHS. The technology can be improved, and it might even produce efficiencies if correctly specified. But hoping you can use technology to magic away deep-seated and complex organizational problems is a fool's errand. And you could make it worse. ®
The NHS is its own problem, it’s too weirdly in its operation and not willing to change for huge numbers of excuses.
The quoted last paragraph sums up the mess the NHS is extremely well.
Given how backwards and insular North Korea is & is perceived, it’s amazing they can develop this kind of technology in country.
Especially given all the sanctions they have imposed on them.
I’m not supporting them, just wondering how they’ve been able to achieve these things under the conditions they are subjected to.
i see TikTok vids people post on whats app but don't go out of my way to engage on the platform, just like i do with facebook, InstaGram etc
So you don't like FB/IG because of their incessant tracking, but allow TikTok... an app/site being blocked by governments around the world because of security risks
I think you may be wearing your blinkers the wrong way round
Your the 1 with the ill fitting blinkers.
I treat TT/fb/ig etc the same, I only watch the TikTok crap as It doesn’t make me login to view. FB/IG insist on you being logged in to view content there, if I didn’t need to be logged I. Yo see fb/ig stuff I’d likely watch that too.
I don’t have the TT app, I don’t have a TT login, if my tech is compromised because of a TT video then I could likely be compromised by an ad on another site or unsolicited email purporting to be from tescos.
It’s my choice and I believe that the safeguards built into my tech are sufficient to make it safe to watch some crummy TT vids without my device succumbing to some vulnerability that the ccp will use to empty my bank account (already emptied on pay day) or god only knows what.
Hackers are a different kettle of fish, but the ccp state will be wasting their time trying to hack crap from my handset.
It's the same with adverts. Despite the data rape, AlphaGoo doesn't seem to know my actual or preferred gender, or lack of kids. So showing me ads based on those categories is just a waste of advertisers money. But AlphaGoo has their money, and doesn't care. It also doesn't care that showing the same ads ad nauseum isn't going to encourage me to buy something, usually it'll do quite the opposite.
if they don't keep bombarding you with adds about kids or stuff you think your not interested with then you will never be interested in those things.
If & when you do relent then you'll have all those ads in the back of your mind and know what to google and therefore the ads would have proven to work in the long run!!!
there are stats on these things but you may need to hear/see the same ad 30 times before your persuaded to buy.
Depending on what it is and how saturated the market for those things is you may need even more ads to buy from that brand.
If its warm and you fancy a beer what brand are you going to reach for especially when your preferred brand is not available? the one you cant remember the name of or the one you've seen endless ads for and is front and centre in the cab in the shop.
I don't use or go to TikTok because I understand nearly all of that is crap. I could be wrong though as I've never looked.
instead of taking other peoples views on it why don't you go check for yourself?
i see TikTok vids people post on whats app but don't go out of my way to engage on the platform, just like i do with facebook, InstaGram etc. I especially steer clear of FB & IG as i don't like the incessant tracking that goes way beyond the site. But those are the choices i make by myself and not on what the fashionable narrative of the time is.
avoiding something because some randoms on the net make it out to be something to avoid seems like totally the wrong thing to do especially when these platforms attract billions of users, avoiding it because you've tried it and don't like it is totally the thing to do.
if your writing the software to check the cert then you can decide what state you want to reject at.
In this case the cert has failed due to the date expiring, you could put a warning and allow the cert to still pass x (i recommend 3) months after expiry so long as its not been revoked.
Revocation is the main thing for certs, dates just guard against bruteforce attacks as the cert should expire well before the feasible date it could be bruteforced.
a recently expired strong cert is not a super huge risk.
A revoked cert is a risk
An expired cert that that should have been revoked but isn't as the makers knew it was expired would also be a risk if the checking software permitted its use beyond the expiry date.
While i think AI may have its uses am i the only one who wants it to be separate and distinct instead of rolled & baked into everything?
I don't need AI to make a call
I don't want AI listening to my call to put a message on screen that i'm 51st in the queue ( i can see how that is handy for some)
I'd like AI to ask my permission to do stuff instead of it doing stuff by default.
i'm on my 5th insurance replacement iphone x.
the recent ones have had truly iffy batteries, to the extent the phone would power off even though the battery health manager reported 85% capacity which sucks considering I only got the handset a few months before.
The current one i got at xmas and is still showing 100% capacity but at times is slow as.......
the recent experience is such that I'm considering going with a cheaper android despite being an apple user since ~1991.
