What, like this?
So tell me, how's that unelected, undemocratic, unaccountable House of Lords doing for you?
And did you vote for an MEP at the last European election? The commissioners (the UK has two) are appointed by the democratically elected Prime Minister, btw...
Flashblock on Firefox seems to have gone to shit recently. Is there a version that works?
The big clue was that they're giving it away for free, and the user is the product...
Reputation and Trust take years to build up, and it can all be destroyed in minutes by the wrong decisions. Back in the day, SF used to be the go-to place, but not anymore. I avoid it like the plague, like many, many others.
Good luck trying to build it again, but remember what I posted about reputation and trust...
A new hard drive (daughterling pushed it off the end of a coffee table)
Two new fans (I cleaned up the cpu and gpu and applied arctic silver before reseating the fan and heatsink)
3rd keyboard (said daughterling pulled off a number of the keys, 2nd got coffee spilled over it)
The screen will need to be replaced since there's a bunch of dead pixels in the middle of the screen, and the mouse buttons could do with being replaced since one of them is soft and doesn't click anymore
Other than that, it's running well.
Online ads? They have online ads? Seriously? Where?
Indeed. We got a laser quite some years ago and never looked back. It's off for several months, we switch it on to print a chapter from a journal, and it prints like it was used yesterday. We still have the old inkjet because it has the flatbed scanner that we use.
Inkjets are expensive, high maintenance machines, and life is too short.
VPN's won't help either. If you have to pay via a credit card, they know which country you're from and they they can deny the service based on this. You'd have to get a credit card in the issuing country, with a corresponding address in that country
They have this same implementation for restricting the sale of mp3's; you can't for example buy mp3's from amazon.co.uk if you live in Canada and have a Canadian credit card.
Don't want them, don't watch them.
Buy an espresso machine, instead of this pod garbage. coffee is much nicer and you can make whatever you want.
I find it horrible too, basically because the interface is so fucking ugly, with three pale, bland colour schemes to choose from (blinding white, light grey and a slightly darker light grey). PLUS THE MENU ITEMS SHOUT AT YOU
If they made it nicer to look at and not so flat looking, I might be tempted to use it
It would be really nice if they took a leaf out of the *nix book and made it possible to keep programs on top. It's constantly annoying having things like notepad etc disappearing when you make the program behind it active, and you have to keep clicking on the taskbar to bring it back.
