Pride Coming Before A Fall?

Apr 13, 2018 - 8:33 AM - by FourPart
FourPart's Avatar
Yesterday morning my manager & 1 other came to take me out of the office. "What have I done this time"? I asked myself. It turned out I was required in order to have a photo taken for the company magazine, being presented with an Award Certificate & Trophy for the first ever Monthly Continuous Improvement Champion. This is to recognise those who have contributed most input to the company which have been actioned.

The idea is that the trophy be passed on to the... [Read More]

A ballooning village?

Apr 13, 2018 - 1:20 AM - by Clodhopper
It seems an area around a village in Devon is rising at a rate of 2cm a year for no apparent reason:

Weird. What it looks like is a lava dome but that's impossible there. If it's water, what happens next? Will it subside again as mysteriously as it has... [Read More]

Political Reverse Psychology?

Apr 11, 2018 - 12:16 AM - by FourPart
FourPart's Avatar
Oscar must be spinning in her Political Grave at this.

It appears Nick Griffin (the former head of the Nazi BNP - before even they kicked him out for being too extgremist) has said that he will be voting Labour.

The only truth I can imagine is that it must be a plot by the Tories colluding with him as a notorious icon of hatred to turn Labour voters against Jeremy, as Labour supporters are incensed at this statement. Yes, we want as many votes as possible. But we do... [Read More]

Maybe you never heard of them. But over these past few days our news here has been overflowing with this very very tragic story.
I am not attaching this link for the purpose of asking for money, I am attaching this link to show just how amazing humans can be.

Friday night over half of the Bronco's Jr Hockey Team died in a horrific bus crash.
Young men ranging from ages 16-21 gone just like that gone. The bus driver died, as did the coach, and 2 support staff. 4... [Read More]

20 years of the Good Friday Agreement

Apr 10, 2018 - 4:37 AM - by Clodhopper
I felt it needed an acknowledgement. The process may be stalled at present with the deadlock at Stormont but I saw a stat that really illustrated what it has achieved:

In the 20 years before the Good Friday Agreement 1,500 people were killed as a result of the Troubles. In the 20 years since it's been 150. And most of those were in the early years.

We curse and damn our politicians, often with good reason. So when they achieve something that saves lives, makes peace... [Read More]

My home system (Ubuntu) has been running low on space on the boot partition so I decided to sort it, no problem I thought as the drive has another partition on it that's no longer used and I can merge the two and double the space. Whilst I was at it I installed a spare 500GB drive just in case.

In order to merge the partitions they have to be unmounted so the computer cannot be booted from there so I booted up from a live CD, demounted the partitions and ran the partition editor. ... [Read More]

Brexit Questions

Apr 02, 2018 - 3:47 AM - by Clodhopper
1) How are brexiters going to solve the Irish Border issue?

The Irish Gov't has said it will veto any hard border in Ireland between North and South. That means if there is to be a border it has to be between NI and the rest of the currently UK. The DUP and brexiters have said they will veto that, and the EU has said there must be a hard customs border of some sort somewhere. The Irish Gov't has also said it will not accept an electronic system which destroys the one possible... [Read More]

Some ramblings connected with the recent ball tampering scandal.

Apr 01, 2018 - 7:10 AM - by Clodhopper
First let me say that I'm looking at this in the context of the global game, not just as an issue for Cricket Australia and secondly that many teams and individuals in the past have crossed the line in one way or another.

I knew of course that there was a lot of bull and bluster around Ashes series but I hadn't realised that much the same happened with every Aussie series. Certainly not to the extent it seems to have happened. They've generated bad feeling across the globe and... [Read More]

The other day my Linux Mint running laptop would not boot, so I ordered a cheapo laptop from eBay which Im using right now.
It's loaded with Windows 7 and my first impressions after using Mint for ages and ages is it seems to be hard work. It keeps reminding me about antivirus and stuff, Back ups and such, and the 'Free' antivirus wants you to buy it every five minutes.

My intention was to install Mint, but I am going to give this a try for a while at least.

Bad enough with the school shooting, it seems somebody figured out a way to one-up that.

As a nation, we debate how to best protect our children in schools, now how we protect everybody from such random violence?

Really nothing new, just a way to grab headlines.
