  • Commented on Empire Games gets a price cut in the UK
    Always exepting that there actually is a nation called India, speaking a common language, of course, which should have included what is now called "Pakistan" of course - massive fuck-up there .... One or two other places benefitted, largely by...
  • Commented on Excuses
    On a previous subject. Internet of things, botnet threat Still want to trust your "smart" meter?...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Yeah, that's the problem, isn't it?...
  • Commented on Excuses
    I'm going to be contrarian & live dangerously here, please bear with me. I can think of one ( And ONLY one ) case where physical punishment is justified. Where the perpetrator, a child in this case, does something potentially...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Quite certain. I was expecting that the Kites, now livng on the Chilterns to migrate clockwise along the ring of chalk hills to the W / NW / N of London to get there first ... I heard them befoe...

    a different gun I put on the mantlepiece Presumably the gate into, um, errr, "nowhere" & the high (?) probability of other high-tech worldwalking states/planets/entites "out there"?...
  • Commented on Excuses
    I saw that too & am concerned, but, purely from personal observation ... 1. When driving on dual carriagways, yes, there are noticeably fewer dead insects on my windscreen ( something the paper-presenters mentioned on the radio about the subject...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Before I rewired it, my whole house had an earlier ( about 1907 ) version of this: Thin steel tubes, with the waxed-cotton-wrapped live wires drawn through the tubes, which had protected ( rubber grommet) ends. WHere convenient ( e.g....

    Under 3 months to go for the next instalment!...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Reusability ?? Assuming, of course some fuckwit like Grayling doesn't cancel it at the last minute. Shades of TSR2 & the CAN Avro-Arrow ........
  • Commented on Excuses
    You forgot to add .. And they WILL sell or give these protocols to paid agents or other ant-gumint "forces" in your country, just to stir the pot a little further, by having multiple, distributed attacks, rather than "just" an...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Yeah, well, I have an engineering MSc, but I'm not allowed to do my own 240V domestic wiring ( Or rather, I am, but mustthen get a "certified electician" to OK it - for a fee ) Bollocks to that,...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Ring Circuits: A really good idea esp for load-spreading, rather than a spider-net of single feeds. I installed 4 when I re-wired: kitchen, other downstairs power, upstairs power, & lighting, plus a single-feed for the hot-water heater. ( I cook...
  • Commented on Excuses
    That Hansard is a nightmare snapshot of ignorance and ideological blindness... Yes, well, they are MP's are they not, almost all "educated" in P-P-E, with no scientific or technical training AT ALL. Current clasical example is the incompetent lying swine...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Mine are a bit more recent than that ( The leccy meter has an LCD readout ) but otherewise as stated - incidentally a couple of days back, I'd just got up from reading this blog, when ameter-reader came round...
  • Commented on Excuses
    All of that sounds horrribly familiar! About 20 years back, I rewired my house ... there are now more power-points in the kitchen then there were in the whole building ... the only one upstairs was a 2-pin round socket...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Wyrnose Bottom & Hard Knott are FUN, but the fen roads .... dead stright for miles, in a flat landscape, with sudden right-angle bends, which, if you don't make, you are going to end up in the botom of the...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Yes And, of course, it's a con. Because I, with my non-smart meter, coiuld easily make use of such tariff, especially if the L-R has benn re=powered to electric, simply ny OBSERVING THE CLOCK. I don't need a "smart" meter...
  • Commented on Excuses
    You've missed the point. I am very concerned about "The Internet of Things" od which not-so-smart meters are part. As far as I possibly can, I'm going to avoid any of these things, simply because the easy possibility of malicious...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Driving along a gravel road, lined with grassy ditches Like THIS do you mean ?? Or, maybe this one ??? Feel free to "drive along aither & tell me what you think. Oh & this one Enjoy...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Jail is different from Prison Is this approximately the same as the difference between "Being in the cells overnight" & serving "a Prison sentence of more than 6 months" - or even "A custodial sentence" in this country?...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Polly succeeded in winding me up ... Grrrrr ..... It's the "deliberate stupidity" that gets to me, sorry about that....
  • Commented on Excuses
    Yes, because, if the house is EMPTY, then there's no-one using any power, so you have a live feed to the meter, then nothing. Saves effort, especially when new folks move in .... Also it's a sfeguard against theiving bastards...
  • Commented on Excuses
    I don't believe a single effing word of any of that. Care to produce some, you know, actual proof, rather than your usual nod/wank (oops, wink)/"I KNOW & you don't/hints. Or shut up...
  • Commented on Excuses
    It depends If your car's normal gearing is different ( You can see where this is going, right? ) then you drive differently. L-R's are low-geared, anyway ( even without shifting to "low ratio" - i.e. gearbox II ) so...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Except you were not - see my # 487 & Guthrie @ 452 You are making entirely false assumptions & then making criticisms based on those entirely false assumptions. Have you stopped beating your wife, yet?...
  • Commented on Excuses
    You are obviously in the USSA My phone line comes in at roof-height & could be physically cut, by someone with a long ladder & a pair of cutters. The Water & Gas & 'leccy all come in well below...
  • Commented on Excuses
    Err ...no. I was not aware of the proposed move (until very recently) for timing of tariff-charges during a single day. I am on whatever the "standard tariff" is in London, incidentally, but I have my central-heating house temp set...
  • Commented on Excuses
    The entire "smart meter" so-called programme in this country is simply a giant con-trick. You are recommended to the warning from, of all people, the Brit security agencies about the risks of "hacking" & subversion of said meters. What extra...
  • Commented on Excuses
    That's the point. There is no such ting as a "Smart meter fit for purpose" They are, quite simply unnecessary...
