Or you see something for $999 and something in your head rounds it down to $900.

Delivery drivers are really starting to get my goat. Do these companies just round up the worst drivers they can find and let them loose? 'Driving license from Mogadishu, you say? Sign here'.

I must have missed the recent rule change which stipulated that you can park in the middle of the road as long as you put your hazard lights on.

The only reason why anyone's remotely interested is that they paid £90m for this donkey and presumably are forking out matching wages and everyone who gives a stuff about United is beginning to feel a bit constipated.

Yeah, like five days in a row over about six different articles.

F1 is a niche sport, whether you like it or not.

I'd rather hear about fishing or something, a thing which I also don't care about, because at least I'd learn something new and not anymore more about his vegan dog.

Worse is the BBC site highlighting Liverpool's prematch press conference as a special item, above and beyond all the other Premier ones. I thought perhaps the exception was because Liverpool were playing today. Nope.

ISTR reading the requirements of the Advertising Standards Authority once upon a time and seeing that they aren't supposed to make adverts louder than the programmes (among other things) - but that was a long time ago now, perhaps it has changed. I mute them all as a matter of course anyway.

I don't follow the sport at all but I always assumed he was a white guy.

mushroom 20-11-2020 05:18 PM

Hamilton is a fantastic driver, no doubt... but I heard a interview with him a while back and he was a bit preachy about people making changes to avoid climate change... I must admit I thought the guy was a bit of a prick.

I want to see the everyday man or woman who have everything to gain or lose not wealthy celebrities who will personally lose nothing.

They love the VIP verision of these shows here. It's just a way of keeping them all paid.

I suspect these celebs get paid a fee for giving up their time or get some nice transport and hotel perks.

First the did one for this and that so you ended in a loop so forcing you to the website for live chat. Now they have bots on the live chat doing the same thing and it drives me I fking crazy.

Transcript:

Hello. Thank you for reaching out to the Spectrum's Sales Department, home of the Streaming TV Solution Specialists.

I want to look at my current plan. $160 a month is becoming hard to justify.

You have reached the sales department. Are you looking to add or upgrade your existing services?

No... keep the same service but pay less (like is being offered to new customers)

I apologize however we only offer new customer pricing for the first year of service or for any services not pre existing on the account within the last month. I see you already have TV services. Would you be interested in bundling?

No bundling. We are very happy with our other services.

Understood. Would you like to upgrade your services?

No, just keep what we have.

Do you have any additional questions for me at this time?

Guess not...

It was my pleasure assisting you today. Your patience was much appreciated. Thank you for Contacting Spectrum. Have a wonderful day.

And you. Bye

Take care.

I thought I was very polite under the circumstances.

The sexism inherent in workplace dress codes. Started at a school this week, told no Jeans, trainers, polo shirts, must be shoes, trousers (no chinos) and a shirt.

All the female teachers are in jeggings, trainers, t shirts, big bulky jumpers, leggings etc.. mental.

The simple solution is to choose PE as your second subject. That's what I did for my PGCE. Thereafter, mooched about in a tracksuit or shorts/polo. Elementary.

That is crazy. It's inherent as you stated. It is as though there is an accepted truth that workplaces have to guard against men being slobs. Many men like to dress well or at least smart casual. There are chinos, and smart jeans of almost a trouser style. Branded polo shirts, lacoste, ferouch etc. are universal office wear outside of perhaps client meetings, and most of the office world and a lot of teaching is being done over the internet with just that dresscode.

I understand there are standards to maintain - even online. Teletrabajo in a bath robe and supping on wine is probably a No No.

But it is 2020, and the world is different. How do you feel about making your point to the dinosaurs overseeing this policy? Would that be employment over?

YES.

Been very lucky this season, but during the restart Palace were on a channel that wasn't on my plan. There was a number to ring and I looked on the website as I was happy to pay extra to get some more channels - temporarily or on a permanent basis. Just gave up in frustration in the end.

Fairly recently my son in law tweaked something for us and we now get a decent batch of extra channels for the same money. All the ESPNs, Film and Arts, ScyFi, TLC, Gourmet (basically Argentine barbecuers and cupcakes) some HBOs - a goodly number were blocked before.

Can't grumble with all the sport, kiddie channels (although Paw Patrol, Peppa etc. gets a bit much after a week solid of it), national, travel, history, animals, and some damned good radio stations (great soul and reggae ones) . all for $35 a month.

I had that. With my home internet. I live in the sticks now. But my home plan, which actually costs a tiny bit more than new plans, has started playing up. I get internet until about 3pm. Then it goes off, usually for the rest of the day. It is like I have been allocated daily Gigas or Megas or somesuch. That wasn't how my plan worked.

I rang them a couple of times. First chap seemed to reset it remotely, and it worked for a day. Next call and the woman told me I had to upgrade my router to their new one. That will involve me getting to their showroom and probably having to buy the new router.

But yes, I am the dumbarse with old technology. It seems I may have to pay double for two plans wit two different companies just to ensure that I have a working internet that I can rely on for online classes.

And it is all about being 5G ready. Even though you don't get the service on 4G you are paying for and the country is on go slow at peak times like Friday evenings.

Call centres....real humans....those were the days....

All the female teachers are in jeggings, trainers, t shirts, big bulky jumpers, leggings etc.. mental.

Smart casual?

Being ever more jealous of watching sides not any better than us having one proper striker....and us not solving that problem.

Put a Vardy, Ings, Jimenez etc. In our 11 and we are flying. How it costs us.

And I chose sides you'd think we could be competing with.

Yep, that's the instructions, to me that just means no tie.

People in senior ranking positions within the military wearing their
military uniform to weddings, even if its not their wedding and the wedding has no military relevance

That's because they have no other smart clothes.

The image uploader I use to post photos on here has gone off line due to "too much abuse" apparently.

https://www.techpowerup.org/upload

I guess the copyright folks got all upset.

Anyone recommend another one?

Thanks... I like it!

It allow you to resize the image. The one I was just checking out ( https://imgbb.com/ ) didn't seem to have that feature.

I'm bookmarking it!

Edit: Maybe you can... that actually look identical!

I'm still using imgur https://imgur.com/ Still works as an image hosting site even though it's frontage has become more gif and clip oriented. Has a few resize, crop and edit options for uploaded pics.

Thanks for the suggestion. Not tried it, but it looks a bit "busy" to me.

The one Bubbs11 suggested is very dull and efficient (read "simple"!), as is the one I found.

Why don't you just attach the image to the post, preview it and then copy the link of the attachment into the post using the insert image thingy? You don't need a 3rd party site then. I assumed that was how everyone did it.

All I did was copy the url of the thumbnail and then enter it into the post with graphics insert icon (the one with the mountains) that I assume you normally use?

Oooh Oooh Oooh. Great episode of Curb in season 8 or 9. A returning soldier comes back and is in the process of getting Married to Jeff's daughter.

At Jeff's house he is introduced to various people. They all thank him sincerely for his service to the country as part of their greeting. Of course Larry just says Hi, nice to meert you. The former serviceman gets offended and walks off, and the others lambast Larry for not expressing his gratitude.

YouTube and the media (Ellen etc.) do love a video of a serviceman being greated by his children, mother, or dog. They love those. If you've seen one viral, you've seen them all. Usually set up in a high school basketball game with whooping crowd. Not hard to see where the MAGA fervour came from.

“Flowmill’s approach to building systems that support full-fidelity, real-time, high-cardinality ingestions and analysis aligns well”

Technobabble bullshit.

Yes the frontage now appeals to the masses but it once used to be just a photo hosting site and once signed up clicking the green circle in the top corner and then images bring you back to the original photo hosting page. it would be handy to just land on that page after login.

Eating my dinner - a chicken satay salad wrap while the wife is watching The Yorkshire Vet where some vet is up to his shoulder inside. A cow. Now retired to the kitchen.
