Heatwave: Warnings of 'heat apocalypse' in France

I don't need it, I don't even necessarily want it, but I've got some cash to burn so I'm gonna get it.

The process of taking a painful L

Shows the Silver Award... and that's it.

Thank you stranger. Shows the award.

When you come across a feel-good thing.

A glowing commendation for all to see

  1. That’s not on Apple that’s on the developer. You could back up your apps and pay for the infrastructure too do it… wait that’s why these companies don’t support old devices forever. it cost money too keep something up and affects such a small percent of there customer base. And that customer base isn’t making us money so why pay for it.

  2. There's a difference between "We're not supporting older hardware, it might work, it mightbe slow, or it might not work at all."

  3. I use humbrol plastic cement it's very good and will bond anything together within seconds

  4. That just brings back memories of the goopy stuff in metal tubes that I used on airfix kits in the early 90s.

  5. Sounds like one of those vibrating ab exercisers, but for your wang.

  6. Might be getting to that point, what's the initial equipment investment though?

  7. That's one of those questions where the honest answer is: "It varies substantially."

  8. It's possible that she has convinced herself now that that is what she believed at the time, since the other option is confronting the fact that she did nothing even though it was literally the entire reason that job exists. You do not need guns to arrest kids with drugs or kids that are breaking things, it's probably worse to have guns for 99% of what security at a school is supposed to do.

  9. I didn't think old style sharpenable saws were tempered, which is why you can't sharpen modern hardpoint saws. Or is it just the difference in the type of steel/tempering process?

  10. As far as I know, sharpenable saws are spring tempered, not as hard as tools like chisels, but enough to give the steel some resilience, and the ability to return to straight when bent, but still soft enough to file.

  11. Fair enough. My knowledge of tempering steel mainly comes from watching a few episodes of Forged in Fire. Which really amounts to 'make hot, dunk in oil and then try not to cry when it warps.

  12. As far as forged in fire goes: The "Heat until it glows, dunk it in oil, and hope it doesn't warp." Is the hardening part.

  13. If a company has a pattern of punishing those who opt out, they would get sued pretty quickly.

  14. An alternative explanation only works as an isolated case. If you had a list of everyone let go and matched it up with those who opted out of sunday work, you could easily create a case.

  15. So that's only going to work in large companies where there are enough staff trying to assert their opt-out for a pattern to be established, and below that threshold, companies can operate with functional impunity.

  16. In Swedish, the left one is a "spade" (spade) and the right one is a "skyffel" (shovel).

  17. Can't believe I got this far down the comments before someone mentioned the angle difference.

  18. Well, when you have to relay rules made by the doctors to patients that you believe to be unethical/unhelpful/borderline negligent cruel all day, and you yourself are personally blamed it can get a bit taxing.

  19. Surely it's only those doctors who actually own the practice who would be a suitable target for your ire?

  20. Otherwise, you think the trimming looks fine?

  21. I'm not sure about this, but I think the way you phrased your question on the original post, might have affected the answers you're getting.

  22. I know it's not exactly what was asked, but does no one else think that's an absolute heap of filler?

  23. As far as I know, It's more the chicken food that gets scattered about/stored in a shed that does the attracting.

  24. Not the person you asked, but I live in a fairly common type of UK home (Victorian terrace.)

  25. Interesting, thanks for replying. Crazy the walls are a foot thick! Is it bare stone/brick inside? Or since been dry walled? Temp is so weird and it’s crazy what we get accumulated to.

  26. The inside of the walls are covered with a layer of plaster, (not plasterboard/sheet rock) which is applied directly to the brickwork. I'm not sure if that counts as dry wall in US terms or not. It's one of those areas where US and UK English differ quite a bit.

  27. My wife says she doesn't want to linger if old age so much as mildly inconveniences her, but I am the opposite.

  28. We need to anticipate every eventuality like Shevatas the Zamoran thief when he tried to steal the treasure of Thugra Khotan.

  29. Yes Spindle roughing gouge and two different sizes of spindle gouges. These are not carving tools.

  30. I haven't got a huge collection of old turning tools, but I've never seen a turning tool with a shoulder forged on the tang.

  31. As a quick check, to give you some peace of mind, take the handles off. (Wrap the metal in something like a thick towel, or thick cardboard to protect them, and clamp in a vice then use a wood block to tap the handles off in line with the tang.)

  32. Not really. My position is irrelevant. Wales however, has a higher proportion of its economy driven by the tourist industry, when compared to the rest of the UK. If you depress that tourist economy, by providing less affording accommodations for tourists, what is the knock on effect of that? And how will that effect the 10% of the Welsh population, whose jobs are reliant on the tourist industry?

  33. Where are the people that serve the tourist industry supposed to live?

  34. 'although rail is faster it honestly might not be much cheaper than the cheapest flights here from aus.'


  36. Are there any potential CITES issues with importing slabs like this?

  37. If you want to be absolutely sure, buying a caliper to measure the existing post would be a fairly cheap purchase, and i'm sure it's something you'd find a use for in future if you have a lathe.

  38. Yeah my bosses are a bit like this. We're permanently understaffed because they haven't replaced people who have left, preferring to pocket the money and work the existing staff harder instead (they're the owners). One of the bosses pointed out that it was a "bit disappointing" to see me leaving at 5.30 every day "when there was still loads to be done". If they'd offered paid overtime or time off in lieu I would actually consider it. However he was expecting us to stay on late with no compensation. He was less than thrilled when I put him back in his place with "I'm contracted to you between 9am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Anything outside that time is mine to do with as I please. If hours worked is so important to you why don't you come in earlier than 1pm every day and pitch in to help?"

  39. You want me to give a fuck about the long term prospects of the company?

    Firing the lot and automating will. I support most strikes, but train drivers really get a reasonable pay package for their training and skill level imo (considering how easily automated their job could be).
