This is in Toronto. The interlocking signal plants were built before WWII and are still in service. One day they will be replaced with a computer based control system, but they aren't quite done yet.
US&S DN11 shelf mount vital relays. Built in 1928 or so. Giant rooms full of them. Racks floor to ceiling and wall to wall. Cherry Street, John Street, Scott Street interlocking plants. Still running all the signals at TTR.
It is the Company's network connection, block whatever you like.
But, and this is important, have an easy mechanism where a user can submit an url, an admin can verify it is a legitimate business related site, and have the site whitelisted immediately. That way you can block "Big Butt Russian Teens" or whatever, but when the SmartFilter(tm) randomly decides that Fairchildsemi.com contains "adult content, sports, gambling and lotteries" (happened to me) the legit business use is not impeded.
Many years ago my regular airline stopped supplying free meals on cross country flights. Since I didn't want to pay $17 for a ham sandich (we like to call it banquet on a bun), and as a mild form of protest, I started bringing my own lunch. Pickled herring and hungarian farmer sausage are ever so yummy, and the garlic, smoked meat and fish smells would fill the nearest third of the aircraft. I got a few dirty looks (thank goodness, or what's the point), but there were no rules against. Since the airline didn't gve a damn, and I was mostly annoying fellow passengers, I eventually toned it down to a less aromtic lunch. (I'm still not going to pay $17 for a ham sandwich).
That's not how I remember it. There were arcades everywhere and video games in every bar back in the 80's and everybody (not just nerds) dropped quarters in them. Pac man and even more so ms pac man, pole position, galaga, sinistar, tempest, defender, asteroids and a pile of other games being played non-stop by all sorts of people, not just so called nerds.
Post of the week! You win the internet.
Do any of your politicians have even the smallest clue how the internet works? Trying to age restrict porn will be as effective as a law banning the sun from rising tomorrow,
What kind of injuries? Curious to know what would prevent you from doing any sort of exercise. When my feet were f-ed up with plantar fascitis I couldn't run, but I could still do a rowing machine. When I broke my wrist I stopped biking for a few months and used an elliptical instead.
Another Americanism. The term "Indian" is much more common in the USA, in Canada we would say First Nations or Aboriginal. Indians come from India.
I think that it's an Americanism. In Canada the native people of the high Arctic call themselves Innuit. (I think it means people). Eskimo is considered mildly derogatory (or at least clueless) here - maybe not like calling a black person a nigger, more like calling a Chinese person a Chinaman.
My dog has no nose.
How does he smell?
"That last bit might be a tad extreme..."- Saturation kinetic bombardment from orbit, followed by mop-up squads with flamethrowers and nerve gas. It might cost a little more, but it sends a message.
No need for tinfoil hat. No need for additives. Forty years of straight up selective breeding, cultivation and hybridization have yielded a huge variety of diiferent marijuana strains with all different effects.Check out leafly some time. No chemistry, no secret additives, just 19th century agriculture producing "better" plants.
If he dies before finishing the series, I swear, by all that is holy and all that is not, that I will find his soul wherever it lands and drag him back to this vale of tears. And then, when his undead shade has finished the series I will kill him myself for being such a dick.
