  1. Don't disagree with this at all. Been watching far too many docos lately where the facts have been twisted to fit a theory rather than the theory being generated from the facts. Still, probably could have used a real example, theres probably plenty out there. And with the particular instance we're talking about, its hard to interpret it any other way than people will get shot if looting starts.
  2. WTF? Who said anything about the NY Times? We're talking about a personal twitter post that went world wide that anybody could see, which was anything but a calm measured response to the crisis at hand. Did the New York Time actually do that? If not, I'd suggest you need to retract that example.
  3. Doesn't matter what I think he means by that. It matters to the people on the ground. If they took it as a challenge or a threat then they'll react in an aggressive way in return. My guess is that they did, and they have.
  4. I don't think you can blame him for the racism but you can blame him for what happening now. From what I can see he's done absolutely nothing to calm the situation. Comments like "when the looting starts the shooting starts" isn't the calming rhetoric that I'd expect to be seeing from the President.
  5. Sounds vaguely similar to another country from last century.
  6. Considering that the US are currently working on legislation to make big tech companies more responsible for the information that their users post, Trumps actions seem to be a bit contradictory
  7. "Come dressed as your favourite triathlete from the 80's" day?
  8. Just waiting for the day when a drug cheat sues their dealer because they got caught.

    Coronavirus

    Gees one day you want to open the borders and the next day you're building a wall. Make your mind up.
  10. No surprises here. Just change the name of your device to something else. Mine is currently called "CIA Drone"

    I think she said its unconstitutional because it's not in the constitution (or words to that effect) Doubt she's ever looked at the constitution.

    Closing the borders isn't helping. They both keep getting back in. Something about them being residents
  13. Just get some decent boards from bunnings and put them up there yourself. (but don't nail them down). If $$$ are a bit tight then only get enough boards to do what you need now and do the rest later From memory, last time (about 15 years ago), I used 1200x600x12mm particle board sheets. And if they have cheap plastic tubs with lids, get some of those too. It'll keep your stuff clean.

    Politics Manual - Chapter 1 - Deflection of blame. When you're up and over your head in political bullcrap, its essential that you blame somebody else for something completely unrelated to your present situation. Then people will look at them and not you and you can quietly go around cleaning things up without being annoyed by people asking embarrassing questions about why you screwed up in the first place
  15. Lab too busy testing covid cases? 6 Months seems a long time to hold onto that result.
  16. If you took the amount of spray tan thats been used on Donald Trump in the past 4 years, you'd have enough to paint an aircraft carrier several times over.
  17. Theres far too much Monty Python going on here
  18. Unfortunately my PC place of choice just went out of business so I'll be looking for another at some stage. Before that I was buying parts from MSY at Morningside but I've never bought a whole PC from them. Somebody once told me Computer Alliance were OK but I've never used them.
  19. Considering that the tone of politics worldwide (including Australia) has moved to become more of a popularity contest than any real display of skill or abilities required to become a leader, its no surprise that the world is full of politicians who would seriously struggle in a battle of wits with an Iguana. Like him or hate him, for all his political faults (and he has many) Donald Trump seems to be the one person who has worked the system out better than anybody else. Realistically he has a decent chance of getting a 2nd term purely on the basis that people have a massive distrust of politicians and they've worked out that he most definitely isn't one.

    I think Roxii was talking about the initial process which was simply to indicate whether your company was going to take part in the JobKeeper program. and then subsequently businesses had to 1. Register, 2. Nominate.... etc Having gone through it, the initial process of indicating whether your company was to take part in the jobkeeper scheme was a total and complete ballsup and I'm not surprised that companies and particularly sole-traders got it wrong. Eventually, we ended up phoning the appropriate mob to sort it all out for us. And from the comments of the poor girl on the other end of the phone, we wern't the only ones who were completely baffled. In comparison, the monthly process is an absolute breeze.
  21. You don't find out whats happening in your town by watching the mainstream media which seems more fixated on a national/global perspective than a local one. With more and more regional media being closed and regional newsrooms being shifted to and controlled from major centres, it's a situation that is only going to get worse.
  22. More if you're Donald Trump

    SMS spam?

    Sorry. Missed that. In my socially deprived world, I just read and then ignore. I'm so socially deprived, I've even taken to talking to telemarketers. To be fair, any resemblance between the truth and what I say is purely coincidental but I still talk to them.
  24. What he said First you have update IOS on the phone, then you have to have a new version of the app that uses the API, then you have to update the app on the phone and then it will work. Given the number of people who don't apply updates to their phones and/or don't update their apps, I'd suggest your mate probably won't see too many in the future either. But that doesn't mean its not working.

    SMS spam?

    Don't answer any number you can't identify. If its legit they'll leave a message and you can ring them back
