Re: Get a Used Desktop
Did that to my mam's 11 y/o laptop and it's performance is perfectly acceptable, especially when one looks at the price for new hardware.

2 years ago I'd have suggested the same but brave has somehow managed to go down hill since, sometimes hardware acceleration doesn't work and web sockets using websites work inconsistently. Firefox has improved and performs consistently on multiple OSes, not to mention brave sync is still remarkably shit.
Similar experience to you, just I've no issues with a vertical one. Vertical for work, regular for home/non-work PC. Introduces a bit of variety too. The Anker verticals are <£20 and perfectly adequate, wireless too I've put rechargeable AAAs in making it nice and heavy at the bottom and it's lasted weeks so far with these batteries (feels like months previously on the regular ones but I'd rather reuse some rechargeables lying around)
That logitech is a touch too pricey I'd say.
Why can't they take control remotely or not even full control but be presented by a set of options by the AI and the support operator picks "proceed to next junction" (at which point the maps will just recalculate a new route)? How is there no option to "stop what you're doing and let the passenger out and shut the car down"? Am I being unreasonable able here?
if at an interview for a software engineer job I get asked "How would you handle unexpected inputs, in your experience" I answer with "I dunno" will I get the job?
Hm yes they don't sound great but there are other important factors contributing to the sound, the plastic used for the caps and the rest of the keyboard components. That's why for example PBT keycaps in a solid aluminium chassis (and other high grade internals) in, say, a vortex keyboard will always sound much better.
This one's not plastic though to be fair, it seems.
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.
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.
"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.
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".
