Not sure what "Zabbly's"? (a handle? Good grief)
The agreement he was asked to sign reading this appears to protect both parties?

Dont let the green lobby hear you say that AC
UK < 1% of global emissions.
A small portion of that transport, and roughly half that passenger cars.
A bit like the angry tree "mob", who bemoan every tree felling, when there are more trees in the northern hemisphere than 35 years ago. Ironically due to global warming. (is a problem in the southern hemisphere for palm oil though)
That's why Critical Race Theory and the stuff they are pushing in classrooms and corporations is not actually inclusive. The language is divisive. It comes from the liberal left, and the language being adopted is from the US where they have hardly "solved" race relations.
Everyone, from every side needs to stop pointing fingers. Stop putting people into pots before they even know the other person.
Simply treat everyone how you would want to be treated yourself.
You're correct Terry. Both "sides" like to try and polarise their ideology, and the people they are accusing.
This comment section is everything that is wrong with modern social dialogue. We've gone to dinner with friends we've not seen for ages and all they want to do is pour out political poison like they can't breath or think about anything except their activistic mentality. Trying to preach about racism. Both white, both rich, both living in a remote part of Hampshire who know precisely zero about what its like to be brought up black in the UK. (but apparently know more about this subject than someone who lives in a mixed racial environment) Sad times. The legacy media and social media have made people awful versions of themselves. Sad really.
I know the irony right. The left whose middle name is "cancel", getting all hot and steamy when they perceive someone from the other side doing exactly what they would do.
This ideological war is so, whatever. Humans finding ever more ways not to get along with each other.
How typical of the weirdy beardy types to downvote you, when you make some good points.
SMTP is inherently weak/spoofable.
All the DMARC / DNS bla bla lash ups in the world hasn't prevented spam.
Even Activesync (superior to IMAP) has been replaced by Azure edge malarky in "modern" Outlook. Which at least makes the client side work, but SMTP still stinks in front.
Email provision with the size of attachments/mailboxes these days.
So people either get it for free, by allowing Google to read everything or pay for it to save themselves the headache of Backup/DR/patching bla bla
Or like the Hunter Biden laptop story that was in the public interest buried by the legacy and social media.
Or Facebook removing a British Medical journal highlighting the poor quality of clinical trials at Ventavia.
This isn't about some singular racist gammon, this is about what these big tech companies allow single humans (citizens or influential people like politicians) or entities like the BMJ to post.
Exactly John. This thread was only ever going to be a cue for the "its those people over there" types.
If the law needs to change, change it. But right now, she's not offside on any tax laws. I dare say many of the negative commenters would choose to take the most tax efficient route given an A / B choice. But its moral outrage if its "the enemy". It much the same way as multi millionaire Labour voters don't liquid their assets and give it away to poor people. Or let a homeless person take one of their second homes. Non dom status has been around for donkeys years. Its only news today in the social media wars in the personification of our politics. Her tiny in the grand scheme of things income pales compared to the large policy decisions over billions culminating in trillions any UK government manages.
Good grief. Why is it that people who buy a different product are a "sheep" or have a positive view on another human are "cult members" or insert some other toxic word.
On the EV part. The reason people are pro Tesla EV isn't primarily the cars, its the charging network. That a) mostly works and b) is high powered. Versus the current public non Tesla charging stations which are sparse, often broken, often super slow/low powered.
The mashup of Merc parts and iphone on wheels device that is a Tesla isn't actually a terribly bad car either.
You seem bitter / jealous.
If you expect to have reasoned debate with remoaners and their selective memories Codejunky - don't bother, they've proven they can't.
You are correct, the sky didn't fall down as predicted. Project fear most certainly didn't come to pass. Anyone suggesting otherwise is just being a juvenile.
Laughable about goods on shelves, when UK imports were at an all time high (around 65bn) Q1 2022.
Very clear psychology difference between men and women.
Men like things, women like people - which is reflected in gender careers choices, and exemplified by the most egalitarian society of Sweden.
Why we have to force equilibrium I don't know. I kinda like the differences. Especially the soft parts.
Its the El Reg comments section though AC, so the demographic always shines through like a beacon of ignorance. "yeah, stick it to the man" "M$". "Down with management"
Only an instagram selfie and oatmeal milk latte away getting a pitchfork out.
Russia has been accused of influencing anything and everything negative (as a leftie sees it) for years. Always completely overstated.
There is almost no such thing as neutral media, you realise that no?
Reuters or Associated Press online maybe, but all TV and newspapers are one way or tother.
In the US you have one 1 lean right and 4 lean left conglomerates that control all the consumers received messages. So they will believe in the push for liberal democracy. If you are Russian or Chinese, you won't think that's such a great idea.
Cue nonsense comparisons to WinRT. Cue, people who have never actually used an 8cx PC
This thread will definitely be full of opinion, yet very little actual experience.
As someone who had a gen1, it ran cool (at odds with mr thejoelr above who clearly hasnt used one)
It ran silent
Battery life was awesome compared to an Intel or AMD equivalent of its vintage.
If the gen2 or gen 3 8cx improves the performance it will be great. Was perfectly fine as a daily driver for basic/standard office automation.
But don't let facts get in the way of a good whine / M$ bashing juvenile nonsense. Carry on.
Yup, you will get downvoted for truth telling
Or preferring Apple over Android
Or if you don't lean politically left
Criticise open source
Supporting a management view
Welcome to the demographic :)
You can probably guess the gender of 99% of posters, their age range, and their personality types.
No mystery :)
Agreed. Agile is for new products with a broad conceptual idea. Its why the concept of minimum viable product exists.
But agile is being applied by people who think they are trendy, and want to avoid the dull rigour of waterfall. "yes yes, just let me get on with it - trust me I'm an expert".
Totally agree this would have been better with a traditional approach.
Also, budget for 25k stick in 20% contingency its an ERP gig after all. When are they _ever_ on time/budget?
You are being selective, here is my grab from DuckDuck News tab with Ottawa, going top to bottom:
(Left, definitely trying to characterise this as "right wing", disgraceful MSM as usual)
From the Guardian, literally the sub headlines:
"How did this ‘grassroots’ rebellion paralyse the Canadian capital? With funding from the far right and a boost from Facebook misinformation"
"Brian Gregg, a long-haul driver for almost 30 years, drove from Indianapolis to Ottawa to support his fellow 'brother and sister Canadian truck drivers'
He tells DailyMail.com, 'I support them and will support them to the very end. These mandates need to stop they are hurting Canadian families'
"Inside the Ottawa protests: Food, hugs and fuel keep Canada truckers in it for long haul
As Canada's capital is brought to a standstill over vaccine rules, neglected blue-collar workers are making their voice heard"
"Great-grandfather, 78, is handcuffed by Ottawa cops for HONKING his car horn in support of Freedom Convoy: Video of arrest which left 4ft 10ins elderly man bloodied and bruised emerges after Justin Trudeau smeared protesters as 'swastika-wavers'"
I've looked at the photos of these protests, if there are swastikas, very hard to see/find.
Just looks like Canadian flags.
Smearing anti mandate protesters is not cool.
Most the benefit of UK private health insurance, is skipping the queue and getting better post op sandwiches. The people performing the ops are often/mostly NHS consultants anyway.
You're paying for expediting and a nicer room not ward. You can also be selective on consultant.
Ah, the Guardianista fuelled myth that UK food standards will go lower and before you know it we will be guzzling chlorinated chicken.
Our antibiotic use is lower than the US and many EU countries.
Growth promoters were banished in the UK 10 years before the EU.
But we tail dock pigs more. We tooth clip pigs.
Its like everything, nuanced and mixed bag. EU have some factic acid washes, not needed in the UK due to the high standard in our slaughter halls.
But, carry on the hyperbole kids.
You're in the wrong place for rationale debate Codejunky. Its fun to watch a certain leaning demographic get their impotent rage in a knot :) Either that or they believe everything the BBC or Guardian tell them :) Or more accurately in the Guardians case, what Bill Gates tells them to say ;)
Yup, MS continually moving the dev goalposts.
WinUI? There won't be a Forms / GUI builder in VS on full release.
Can't even stick to UWP for their own apps.
MS, still divisional and not the "one Microsoft" that they claim to have become.
