Unless there has been an accident involving me, a bush full of astonished spiders and a VERY sharp thorny thing at ankle level, this is not my usual pose for photographs... even 17 years ago :)

Sorry Annie, love girls with a nice head of hair. mmmm, running fingers through it very slowly...

Been reading up on this Catalonia independence business. Do you think
Cameron agreed to the Scotland referendum as a way of sticking the boot in
on Spain over the Gibraltar issue?

Cameron agreed to the referendum because he is an arrogant out of touch public school tw*t who has no concept about how the Scottish view the British government.

Careful there lassie, you might get labelled an ex-pat bolshie anarchist by "ssssh you know who..."

Here is a good reminder for how you do not have control over your own "i-Devices":


Apple releases U2 album removal tool

Apple has released a tool to remove U2's new album from its customers' iTunes accounts six days after giving away the music for free.

Some users had complained about the fact that Songs of Innocence had automatically been downloaded to their devices without their permission.

It had not been immediately obvious to many of the account holders how to delete the tracks...


Can't see how that happened. It certainly didn't happen to me. I had to manually download it as I like U2.

Note that the same goes for any device from any vendor for any data where that device is automatically updated with proprietary updates. You are vulnerable or victim to anything being changed on the device, including what you might consider to be 'your' own data...

So what else is there?...

Or have most users already rolled over to die?...

IT is what we allow it to be...

Can't see how that happened. I had to manually download it as I like U2.

"So, where is the thread against Islamic violence?"
Not here
What is Islamic violence?
There are no such thing!


Correct, but don't go dancing :-)

Unbelievable!

Do politicians & the slimeballs within local authorities think people are that stupid?

MP seeks law

"Over that period of time not one member of the public came to a surgery of mine, not one local councillor asked me a question, either in my political group or in full council, not one local MP in Rotherham raised the issue or a case of CSE for those five years."

Yet we see this: -

"The report by Professor Alex Jay detailed how children had been subjected to trafficking, rape and other sexual exploitation over a 16-year period and how their abuse had been ignored by a range of agencies, including police, councillors and council officials."

For anything to be ignored, it first must come to the attention of those that ignore!

Director finally resigns

"She insisted that, given her findings, "nobody could say I didn't know"."

Just confirms the statement in bold above.

Needing 5.8 gig of storage is ridiculous though, what the hell are they installing on there?

Obviously that was wrong as I only have 2.5 Gb free on my 4S and it installed fine.

The download was 895mb, which was expanded, but then after install all temporary files were removed and I have exactly the same free space on both my iPad and iPhone as I had before.

There is a lot of mis-information around plus I suspect people with less that 895mb free space tried to update over Wi-Fi. I wonder if most people even know how much free space they have?

The only difference I've found with it was under iOS7 my capacity was 13.2gb now under iOS8 it's 12.8gb. With both, had 8gb free.
