  1. I haven't posted so much here or anywhere, because it angers me so much. I'm angry with all involved here quite honestly, and I seriously believe from start to finish this has been caused by people thinking about their own political career, rather than attempting to lead in any way. From Cameron to Bojo to May all the recent quitters. What people don't seem to understand is that lives are at stake here. What the hell does a no-deal mean for people in hospital, for food, for those of us living in the EU, and for other EU citizens living in the UK. What a colossal fuck-up. I can tell you the external view of the UK is as of that of the US atm. A bunch of short-termist morons who have no idea of the realities of their situation. Angry & afraid.

    Musings From My Desk

    So we've had 10 of those Ikea standing desks in the office for 2.5 years now. I'd say each gets about 1hr per day of being raised and the rest lowered. Every single one of them has had the ac adapter die between January and June of this year. 3 of them also had a broken motor, and Ikea told us that they wouldn't replace those, as it's basically the whole desk. For now we just ended up making those ones fixed tables for now. I think for the price they're great, but you definitely get what you pay for. On the other hand, I am using one of Ikea's conference corner tables at home for a desk. https://www.ikea.com/gb/en/products/desks/conference-meeting-tables/bekant-conference-table-birch-veneer-white-spr-49047464/ which seems to be excellent as a general purpose table.
  5. For running & the gym I just use these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Urbanears-Plattan-Wireless-Bluetooth-Headphones/dp/B00XQ37XR6 They're cheap, sound fine & are wireless. If you get upset with the sweat building on them, then just push kitchen roll on them afterwards to absorb the sweat. They're also load of those spot version things (in-ear with strap around back) which are the same. e.g.: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B072MXKRJ1/ref=s9_acsd_top_hd_bw_bH8tD_c_x_1_w?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-4&pf_rd_r=8ZCSMFAN7ZZAV7CK6WAQ&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=47084367-a6a8-5268-903f-2bef76b19d4a&pf_rd_i=4085751

    The Android Thread

    Totally agree with Todd. SD Cards are a real pointless ballache. And with the growth of streaming, no-one wants lossless anyway. You'd never have the bandwidth to download it. It's about finding the sweet spot. E.g. Spotify's Ogg Vorbis usage is actually pretty high quality, and it's extremely rare to find people who can here the difference at that bitrate with that format. And I still think you're missing the point about hardware design. By removing the 3.5mm they can make the devices thinner & use that space for something else (like battery), and without accessing the SD card they're also making a lot more use of the rest of the space for something else (like battery). Also, phone creators should add more battery.

    You're not the target audience. Same was iPhone. The iPhone7 (soon 8) don't have a headphone port but rather a converter. The pixel is a device for the top end so usually those users buy the top end headphones without wires as well.

    I'm confused. It's a method that should be private except it's called by the test?

    Election Means Election Chat

    No. But if someone said when you divorce that if you can't decide how to split up the wealth you both lose it all and live on the street and the state takes it all. You may decide to not divorce.

    Slept in a sleep clinic the last 3 nights. In there I was expected to go to bed around 9:30 and GTFO by 5:30. While cabled up. Was strange. On the bright side, I can customised my new mask to make it look like Darth Vader.

    It is a pretty obvious Horror film scenario. So makes sense.

    The Android Thread

    That's called unbundling. Actually it does make sense for when you have separate use cases and user experiences but occasionally combine the two. I actually quite like it. Apps like Foursquare are the ones that really didn't do it right for me, as I believe they separated 1 use cases into 2 apps.
