Well I do make sure that they're thoroughly and vigorously rinsed when emptied (I know, pretty obvious), then just before filling they go through boiling water with Chlorinated Trisodium Phosphate in it (known here as Pink Stain Remover or NEO Pink, 1 teaspoon per 2 litres), then vigorously rinse, prime then fill.

Double layered rubber gloves are a must also Mike and I use the end of a big old wire handled bottle brush to submerse and extract the bottles, but the bottles are still pretty hot while vigorously draining them (I can tell you that hot hands do result in some vigorous (my word for the day) swearing at times, but I've never got any blisters out of it).

I think that I might go and make myself a rum'n'lime now.

Cheers.

Just having a short break while waiting for my sterilised bottles to cool down.

How does, "drinking beer and having a bloody good time", sound?

We do that as often as we can around this village. :-D

I'm sure that if it doesn't turn out well then Coopers will be getting a lot of complaints and urging to change it back Grant.

Anyhow, I better finish this ciggy/coffee break, then get back in there to rinse and prime them before another short. ;-)

Cheers.

Has anyone heard from King Tut lately?
I'm surprised he's not here celebrating.

He was last heard from here and his main rig hasn't been in contact with the servers here or over at beta since last month.

[edit] His ARM device still has 5 tasks to do though.

Cheers.

1st of all you need to stop Windows 10 from updating your device drivers with those supplied by Microsoft (which are usually missing something, OpenCL support in this case).

http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/stop-automatic-driver-updates-windows-10

Then you need to rollback the driver to your last working 1 in the Device Manager, hopefully. If that doesn't work then just download and install the driver from Nvidia's own website.

Cheers.

After a frosty and foggy start (0C felt like -3C), it has been a great sunny day outside for a change to get some long overdue jobs (due to the weather here) done.

Currently 14C (feels like 11C) as a bit of broken cloud starts to move in, but 16C is expected.

After that it's back to unusually wet weather again. :-(

Cheers.

Other than bringing in the washing off the line, I have the gutters, tank filters and overflows all cleaned as well as getting the weeds sprayed this morning.

All just in time for a LLB and then that washing should be dry by then.

Then it can rain as much as it likes for the next 2 days and then I'll be down visiting my baby sister for her 50th birthday & party down south with what's left of the rest of the family (sadly it's not all that often we can all get together these days with the distances involved). :-)

Cheers.

A change of plans for me today after checking the weather forecast so the bottling can wait until tomorrow (it's waited this long, another won't hurt it) and clothes washing is going to be done instead seeing as the next 2 days will be wet before I head off for a few days to visit my baby sister down south.

Anyhow, there's still 4hrs to go before Beer O'clock so I'd better go and get into it.

Cheers.

Someone will run a manual database clean up, as has happened before with a change in version before, and then that will be the final end of them.

Well I hope that this current beer brew is ready now as it will get bottled tomorrow whether it is or not, I'm certainly not liking this new Coopers Lager wort version, as I'll be going away for a few days in a couple of days time.

Anyhow, I did enjoy a few beers down the bottom pub earlier Grant, but I think that it's time for a change now.

Cheers.


Same here Wiggo.

I changed a couple month ago.

I have yet to taste the final results of it Mike (that's still 6mths away at least) so I won't make any drastic decisions just yet, but I will have to start the next brew with 5L less water in the kit and let it degas for 2 days instead of 1 before topping it up and sealing it. I may even have to dig a hydrometer out, but after 2 weeks at the right temp it has to be done (10 days use to be the max if the temp was a bit low).

Cheers.

Ok, the Royal Commission in 1991 was about "Aboriginal Deaths in Custody" and well before any privatisation of any correctional or detention facilities ever happened, they were run by either State or Federal officers.

But you should know by now that big international private contracting companies will do anything these days that they think that they can get away with regardless of whatever country they operate in or their laws.

From what I can gather their contracts here began in around 2008 and by 2014 the 1st cases of the abuses by this company started coming to light and they have steadily grown in the last 18 months, but all the State and Federal Governments have done so far is basically slapped them on the wrist.

The voice of the people here this time has finally forced the Federal government into a Royal Commission so no more "wrist slapping" will be going on this time (probably because of their contracts).

We can argue about this all night Sirius, but in the end, what you've called "Australia's Shame" goes much further abroad than you think.

Personally I hope that the final outcome breaks this particular company enough so that it can be finally buried (with its moral standards it certainly needs to be).

Cheers.

So rather than agree that's it's despicable, hit me & G4S.

It doesn't bother me in the least, but will that Royal Commission be like the UK's inquiries?

"Justice Lowell Goddard was on a salary of £360,000, an annual rental allowance of £110,000 and £12,000 a year to cover utilities. Panel members will each receive £565 a day."

UK Child Abuse Inquiry

As an Aussie, do you think it's right that these issues have been ongoing since 1991 & more than likely earlier with hardly any change?

Do you think it's right for civilian or government prison officers should act like gestapo?

That 1st photo looks like something out of the early days of Crime & Punishment magazine depicting someone set up for the electric chair/lethal injection.

What an image!

Actually this is despicable for any type of orginisation anywhere Sirius and just 1 in a long list of ever increasing occurrences by this 1 company around the world (not just here).

Hopefully this Royal Commission will lead to all the current contracts of this particular company here being cancelled without penalties (the biggest reason they have not yet been) and then prosecuting the hell out of them.

You maybe stirred up about this now, but we've been spewing about it for 2 weeks now and mostly because the federal government only wants to investigate their contract for juvenile detention in the N.T. and not all of the company's contracts (they likely won't get their way though with a hostile senate).

BTW, isn't G4S run by ex-Brit soldiers that did time long ago in the Middle East? Maybe that's where this behaviour came from?

Yes it's an imagine that should never have happened to be photographed in the 1st place.

As for your "Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse" your at least 2 years behind us there and there are already plenty are behind bars because of ours here. ;-)

I'm sorry that you opened a can of worms that leads back home Sirius, but you really should've done a little bit of homework there 1st before flapping your gums.

Yes we still do a few problems to sort out, but nothing like what we see elsewhere around the world, though we will get them sorted without the "pussy footing" about.

Cheers.

Many have been commenting on the Police issues in the States. Think some of those commenters should look closer to home.

and then
Made no reference to Aussie police, however I can now see the inference.

Make up your mind Sirius.

As to where they're trained then you better ask G4S (or whatever other name they operate, or have operated, under), you should be able to walk into their head office over there and find out for yourself quicker than I can. ;-)

Cheers.

Despicable!

What's the feeble excuse for this?

A Royal Commission is already being setup to investigate this, and it's not the police that is involved (check your facts 1st Sirius), but a certain security firm that contracts to run these correctional centres (though this particular kid is a problem in himself).

The firm is also UK based and has had several name changes over the years (I don't exactly know what name they currently operate under over here), but I'm sure that you know exactly who I'm talking about Sirius as they also screw up over there as well as in many other countries around the world. ;-)

So you better look to the policies of a company closer to home to place the blame.

Cheers.

Another to consider is, "what else is running on this electrical circuit?", as I all too well know that certain other electrical equipment can cause very bad effects to happen on it.

Each finished task's Stderr output has its "WU true angle range" noted.

Check out the 1's listed as "VLAR" and then check the other workunits out (just make sure that you leave out the workunits that overflow) and you'll see that the higher it is then the quicker they run.

Erasing history is a basic necessity in the fundamental transformation of this country into another failed communist nation. Besides, it'll be confusing to the school children if their town centers don't match their latest history school books.

Too funny that Mr "--" would post to a thread about erasing history.

Isn't it just?

I'm just ROTFLMFAO!!!!! :-D

Thanks for such a good laugh Guy. ;-)

seems like the command line made the times double for my gpu wu's. now they are always over 10-20 minutes they used to do 4-6 minutes... not sure

Do you check the angle ranges of those workunits?

The higher the angle range the quicker a workunit will run. ;-)
