I'm pretty sure I read about this very thing on the reg over 20 years ago. I thought it was well known and that is why the LEDs just blink on and off and aren't driven by the actual data signal.

I had this happen to me just last week and every website I went to told me to take it out clean it reinsert it and it that doesn't work reformat it. Not one mentioned that reformatting it will wipe the contents FFS. I backed up all my photos before I copied them to the SD so nothing was lost, but I still have a nagging feeling there was something else of inportance on there, so it is currently sitting on the sidewaiitng for me to make an image and start trying to recover it.
Re: Children, Please!
EE have the best network around my way but they are stupidly expensive. I did use Virgin Mobile who are a VMNO piggybacking on EEs network but they wanted to play the "put your (sim-only) contract cost up by RPI each year" game so now I'm on Smarty. The network is just about good enough and they don't play any silly games.
I always felt that the correct approach was to develop your own libraries, either personally or as part of a larger organisation. Just reusing code from some random guy on the Internet is just inviting disaster.
FFS wasn't there a library that just leftpads a number with 0s or something that hosed loads of people's apps when the author had a hissy fit recently? It seems to me that it would take no more effort to write that function than it would to search for it and include it in your build.
If you can find and fix this subtle Chromium bug that breaks some extensions, there's $8k waiting for you
Well the second amendment was there to protect US citizens against the British Government, so in a sense you are both right.
Keeping a weapon at home for the purposes of being a member of your local defence militia and the out of ocntrol gun ownership culture that currently exists in the US are 2 completely different things, and I don't think anyone could argue legitimately that the latter is what was intended by the authors of the second amendment. It's still the wild west unfortunately.
Here's an idea tho, if you can't ban the weapons, why don't you ban the ammunition? I await your flames and downvotes!
Re: controls to delete all or part of those records, or switch it off
I once found a lost mobile phone because I had location tracking on. It was lost in a foreign country in a city of 25 mllion, so I initially thought it was gone for good, especially when I looked on Google maps and saw it was miles away from where we had been that day. When I checked later, it right outside the apartment we were staying in... Looking at the location history I worked out we had left it on the bus 12 hours earlier and it was still there going round and round the city. We went out and stopped every no 34 bus going past and asked if we could take a look and finally there it was!
In general tho, I don't have location tracking on, but it does have it's uses. On another note, do you use Google's keyboard or a third party's? Either way I would be much more concerned about the data that is potentially collecting that my location.
Never assume anything
At my previous company I was once called down to the test department because the poor guy had followed the documented procedure to the letter, but nothing was happening.
When I got there I could see that he had indeed typed the command in exactly as described in the documentation, so I pressed 'enter' and everything worked as expected.
I then went back to my office and added "and then press 'enter'." to the procedure in question.
Don't know if anyone posted this already, but as far as I am concerned, due to the intensely personal nature of pregnancy, this is an issue that only women should have the right to decide.
As an aside, I find it extremely strange that "pro-life" states seem to oppose any sort of meaningful gun control. Make your fucking minds up!
Complete fail now
My dad also uses K9 on my recommendation. Recently he complained it wasn't sending emails; they would just sit in his outbox and there was no indication of what had gone wrong.
He asked me to take a look so I checked his settings which were 100% correct, enablrd the debug logs (which seem to mostly UI events).
No matter what I tried, it wouldn't send the emails. He has the latest version, thanks to Google Play updating it (even though it was installed from f-droid originally), so I downloaded 5.600 from GitHub and it now works perfectly.
I am starting to question the judgement of the guys at Mozilla tbh.
