Yeah actually I've a Zen 2 one myself, I only said that because it uses in practice a bit more electricity (as measured at the wall socket) but it's insanely faster than my old 5+ year old i7..

Bill Gates lays out a three-point plan to rid the world of COVID-19 – and anti-vaxxer cranks aren't gonna like it
Mossley Hill is relatively posh. Also quiet roads at night with poor lighting and lots of vegetation (cover/no patrols), you have to consider the possibility this is, like a lot of crime like this, opportunistic and done by chancer scallies (albeit driving the odd stolen focus/moped) who couldn't care less for conspiracies but certainly have spent a lot of time on facetube and twatter reading about it.
You can get a mechanical keyboard for £45. But should you? We pulled an Aukey KM-G6 out of the bargain bin
Re: Cheap Mechanical Keyboards
and went for a Corsair K70
For that kind of money you could've bought a real keyboard, a leopold, varmilo or something that offers choice (of caps and switches) and actual build quality with none of the faf.
Mine's the one with the mx clear vortex race 3 in the pocket.
Facebook sort-of blocks anti-quarantine events – how many folks are actually behind these 'massive' protests online?
Re: Big rant, lots of capital letters...
"And let evolution do the rest"
I agree with the idea of them having a go and having their protests don't get me wrong but this isn't evolution, it's just people dying (which will initially be mostly medical staff further exacerbating the issue) because of no hospital capacity. If it's evolution then get ready for it to apply to all of us meaning we have to keep dying from Covid-19 for generations until only those naturally immune (if there is such a thing) begin to have an offspring - assuming there's any social structure to support such an hypothetical future society.
Obvs overstating but you get the idea.
It's a fair point about PDF but a balance should be struck somewhere, nowadays vast majority of users are not power users and if they have to have a separate piece of software installed as a PDF viewer that means it has to be kept up to date as well as the browser, and if they don't they'll be more succeptible to being offered malicious or dangerous viewers (*cough* like the adobe one *cough*), while a browser one could be sandboxed and would "just work" (hopefully (who am I kidding)) and would have more frequent updates.
Apple: We respect your privacy so much we've revealed a little about what we can track when you use Maps
Re: Not New?
What's the point, how many people/nutters/drug dealers who plan on unnecesary travel will use their phones if they intend to willinglly break the current rules? These reports from Apple and Google are just a few hundred pages of the bleeding obvious. I can look outsde my window and see for myself, the police patrols whos job is literally that and are also on the streets can also see, what value would it add to use "anonymised" data from ISPs or Gapple.
The only thing this will do is whet the government's appetite to develop a solution that will track forever and always named individuals so they can one day ASAP make it law for "our own good".

Over the years I've actually used the price increases as the point where I switch or threaten to, on the phone as soon as you tell them your contract is for such and such money and If those terms change the early contract termination clause does not apply they start giving you discounts and try to keep you, so it's a question of keeping customers informed more than anything.

Re: throwing an open container; Aren't bars obliged to open canisters for you precisely because an open can makes a poor projectile (I imagine it's not as 'solid' since the liquid can now slosh about and spew out cancelling out the kinetic(?) energy you applied to it while hurtling towards your opponent)
OK. We're off. Water ice found just below the surface of Mars. Good enough for us. Let's go. Impulse power, Mr Sulu
If I had cases with them I'd mass re-open them as soon as. Not even re-open but reword it and send new with different wording to throw off any automation they have that will de-prioritise re-opened cases. Looks like they're hoping to clear all that and hope people forgot what cases they had with them to appear like they've improved their ratios.
Re: From Experience (and In Hindsight)...
DC were doing generator testing a few years ago, while the DC was running on them some engineer leaned on the unprotected emergency shutdown button I shit you not. I was afraid we'd have some seized up hard drives as no one wanted to buy new kit for some years. Afraid/Hoping, could've had some investment if there was catastrophic failure tbh.
VM/BT who have fibre or whatever for the area still means super throttled connections during peak (as many commentards have attested to) how will that be different for 5G where there will be so many more subscribers (as everyone has a phone) with the added bonus of some of them being on the move on buses between tall buildings etc with frequent basestation handovers. What I'm trying to say is those quoted speeds are meaningless today.
A lot of people on the tube arent locals and they're the more likely to read them being visitors and all, and also the more likely to do stuff that are not acceptable so it's not a terrible idea.

Re: Now's the time to remove those little 'f' buttons on every page
No, the FB one is a tracky one, Firefox's Facebook Container extension (developed by Mozilla, and reassuringly offered after a fresh install of FF) flags it and blocks it (if uBlock doesn't scrub it 1st that is, sorry Reg <3).
There are other containers too for amazon and LinkedIn (I was surprised how many bits of the internet go back to those two). But I digress.
