And the painting the picture is taken from is in Manchester Central Art Gallery. It’s a lot bigger than on the tin.

Some of those tins are proper large though.

40mpa is something like 6000psi. I'm no expert but that sounds like a face-mounted bomb. And what kind of valves etc do you need to handle gas at that pressure?

Good job they'll never ship anything as otherwise that could be very dangerous.

If I ever get married, I do not want a huge, expensive party. I was thrown off by the fact that he doesn't want anyone there (we both have older children, mine are still underage), and doesn't want to wear wedding rings. Are the tax benefits that great?

Does his children know about you and your relationship with their father?

Could be a bug. Have you checked the PRs?

Is that what the OP is trying to do here?

That would be a shame if true - I was (perhaps naively) assuming that it was a standard legitimate business.

Can you think of any legitimate reason why a company would want to route their traffic to Amazon, Yahoo etc to make it look like it's coming from a load of residential addresses rather than from their corporate one? Because I can't.

Location could make a big difference but just to confirm the details:

You'll be supplying routers to random people but you won't be the ISP for those people, right? You just want your company's traffic to Twitter, Yahoo, Amazon etc to look like it's coming from random people's computers rather than from your own domain.

Depending on the router's capabilities and how you set it up you may or may not be able to log with specificity which traffic is coming from the customer's network and which is coming from yours. How specific you need to be will depend greatly on jurisdiction which you failed to mention.

What you log about the customer's network usage may also need to be treated very carefully for privacy reasons (again, this depends greatly on jurisdiction). If your customers are covered under the GDPR, for instance, you're going to need to be very careful about what you're logging.

If you are using your customer's ISP connections to do stuff that Twitter, Yahoo, Amazon etc don't want you to be doing (because, after all, if they were fine with you doing it you would be doing it from your own network, wouldn't you?) then you would also risk getting your customers banned from those services.

weed has a stigma due to government propaganda

You've never seen someone who ends up smoking weed all day, e'ry day and when they try to stop they get extremely irritable and anxious and unable to sleep? I have, more than once.

SD-WAN, firewalling, and HA can all be handled by Linux/FreeBSD/pfSense/OPNSense/OpenBSD on a pair of relatively modest 1U servers (Xeon E3-1260 or so). I've never had the troubles with pfSense that people seem to with ASAs.

That depends on workload. I wouldn't want to push 10G+ through a pfSense box.

I still do not understand why companies do not simply roll out mobiles to their users and manage through airwatch. My company for example issues dect phones so everyone is mobile around the company and can carry their phone with them, but we also roll out mobiles to some users. Imo you could just replace all dect with mobile..

Call costs, lack of coverage in the middle of buildings and institutional inertia.

Don't get me wrong I like the monarchy I'm not the sort to wait out all day for a glimpse of them but I really appreciate all the work they do. They bring a lot to the country and no one can tell me they don't work bloody hard.

Some of them work hard. Others, not so much.

It could be your optical drive.

Can you see the laser lens in the drive and, if so, is it clean? Note that the lens is mounted in a delicate, flexible mount so you want to be very gentle with it. Just use the corner of a piece of tissue paper to wipe off any dust.

Here's the rigorous process Kickstarter applies to any new campaign:

  1. Do they have an email address?

  2. Have they provided details of a bank account?

Number 3 is the most important: "Will they give us a cut of the money they raise?"

Well, throughout the videos, he points out different parts and complains about how they leak oil all the time. At one point, he says it goes through 7l/100Km of oil. Why don't those seals keep in oil? Cars now presumably have similar problems, but don't leak oil nearly as much.

That's a series 3 land rover so that means it was built in the 1970s. The engine design dates back to the 1950s. Comparing that to a car built in 2018 is a bit unfair.

Why would the suit be in the UK though? Musk isn't resident here. Do his companies even operate in the UK?

so they can't find the server, the DNC won't turn over the server, but they know the server was hacked...and right before the visit with putin. It's amazing how the FBI and the DOJ have become so political, they don't even try to hide it anymore. Can't wait until November, when the red wave finishes the job. Drain it!

What makes you think that the only place that you can get traffic logs from is a server? Have you not heard of routers?

maybe if she didnt use her OWN personal server, which is a crime for that level of clearance, it would never been hacked. Have you not heard of rules? Probably not...

see more

It doesn't matter whose server it is, if traffic from that went over the internet it went through multiple routers. And we already know the NSA routinely collected traffic logs from the routers sitting in the ISPs.

I worried if I just kick him out and send him to an airbnb he will just fly right off the wagon and get completely wasted non stop. At least if he's with me I could influence him to do other activities.

He's already getting wasted non-stop. And if he cared about your opinion he wouldn't be treating you the way he's treating you.

You are not as important to him as alcohol is. This isn't your fault. Protect yourself.

I went to relationship counselling with my qualifier. In the first session I said the the biggest issue that I saw was the way my (then) partner treated me when she'd been drinking. The counsellor asked me how much and how often she drank and when I gave a rough overview the counsellor then said that they had a policy not to give relationship counselling while there was active alcoholism as that dominated everything else. That was quite a telling moment.

For most people, the first few months of a relationship are the honeymoon period where both people are still on their best behaviour.

This is his "best behaviour". It's very likely that once he gets more comfortable in this relationship his drinking will increase. Not because he's suddenly starting to drink more, but rather that his drinking will return to the level it was before he met you. If so then this is as good as it's going to get.

You're in a relationship with someone who takes every opportunity to get drunk rather than doing anything else. How many activities do you enjoy and that you'd want to share with him are compatible with him likely only wanting to join in if he can drink while he's doing it?

Prometheus, RIPD, Green Lantern, Pacific rim, Watchmen, Tomorrowland, After earth, Transcendence, Godfather 3, Need for speed, Jumper

see more

With Pacific Rim at least you've got it the wrong way round - the concept is ridiculous (why not just have torpedo- and missile-equipped submarines permanently stationed by the rift?) but the actual movie is a fantastic assembly of over-the-top, brains-out fun.

Pacific Rim 2, on the other hand, sucks balls.

Totally agree. What was her strategy here? Invoke A50 with no idea of what brexit would look like, let alone a plan, then call and lose an election, and then having to appease the DUP to stay in power.

So many fuck ups in such a short space of time

see more

If May had delayed the A50 declaration then there'd have been continual sniping from the rabidly anti-EU wing of the Tory party that she was ignoring the Will Of The People. That would also had likely led to a resurgence in UKIP stealing Tory voters.

So she declared A50 before she had the slightest idea of how it was going to be delivered because it was all about stopping the Tory party self-destructing. As was the entire brexit campaign, of course.

Party before country. It's the Tory way.

To be slightly fair, Intel did try other architectural initiatives but were stymied by customer inertia.

see more

It wasn't just customer inertia. Intel tries new architectures to enter new markets. It doesn't do it to replace x86 because Intel is nothing without x86.

So if/when those new architectures start taking more market share from x86 than from other manufacturers then they get quietly killed.

Remember Itanium? Failed because people were not willing to recompile software to a new instruction set. Intel would have loved to push it to mainstream but unfortunately few people wrote/compiled software for it and backward compatibility broke it.

see more

Itanium was primarily aimed at taking market share from the workstation/server processors like Alpha, SPARC and PowerPC that were stealing the high-end market and that x86 at the time couldn't compete with. Intel very quickly dropped any pretence that it was going to replace x86 as a whole.

Nevertheless what really killed Itanium was that it was a crappy design that relied way too heavily on the compiler to get any kind of performance from it. Plus it was late to market, slow, and very expensive.
