Like the move to micro-SD, always ended up using full-size SD adapters that just protruded needlessly from the side. I had one device damaged thanks to the SD adapter being knocked, damaging the board, and I know this has happened to many others.

Sorry, that's incorrect, name-based virtual hosts pose no problem to this.
The webserver determines which virtual host is being requested by examining the Host: field in the http header. This happens well after the tcp session has been established, and that happens after the ip address has been determined.
When the browser looks for domain.example, it'll ask whatever resolver it uses to find an ip address to use. Once it has that ip address, it connects to it, and only then tells the webserver which host it wants. There is nothing to prevent the browser from using it's own cached version of the ip address and sucessfully making a connection.
Our state exams at age 15 had an essay option for a book of your own choosing, and I did that with Magician, mostly because I'd already read it a half dozen times by then. The text is very accessible, and there's plenty of themes to work with. As noted, the language is relatively simplistic, so as a literary piece of work it's nothing special, but it deals with many common fantasy themes. The length is probably the main negative point. Also of interest, and possibly more appealing to both sexes would be his Daughter of the Empire series, which runs more or less concurrently with Magician, but is set on the world of the agressors in Magician.
The storm trooper uniforms are stupid, kind of remind me of French Legionnaire uniforms that always made me laugh when I saw someone dressed like that in the desert. The red flags on your shoulders make you stick out like a sore thumb regardless of where you are.
You have, of course, realised that that uniform is for ceremonial purposes, and not the battledress used in actual combat situations?
Here's an example of the not in dress uniform:
All they have to do is build giant concrete walls around the turbines, and stick a roof over the top. So long as they don't put any windows in, it should be safe for bats and birds.
It's crazy that they haven't thought of doing this.
How about "Gods peed"?
Yes, but Ireland isn't in the UK.
No, the licence isn't to view the content, it's to possess the apparatus used to view the content. Copyright of the material isn't affected.
Streaming isn't transmitted to the general public whether the material is received or not. Each viewer has to connect to the streaming host and ask for the data. If somebody were broadcasting to 255.255.255.255 to every Irish host on the Internet, then the legislation would start to apply.
On-demand downloads from RTE are not covered by this bill.
Or more relevance:
transmitted, relayed or distributed
This is about passive viewing, i.e. viewing what's listed in the TV guide and pumped out by the broadcaster. On-demand viewing is not covered. So unless you have a TV card, the article is bull.
Of course, if digital television evolved to being an unscheduled and wholly on-demand system, then perhaps this legislation would need a revisit.
