Does satellite internet suffer the same problems with weather as satellite tv? Namely when a heavy cloud passing between you and the satellite causing a blockage in signal?


I have worked in remote location installing solar systems. Yes.

Is there a map or data on places not connected by BT copper.
A good question to which I'm afraid I haven't got a good answer. You can assume that remotest rural areas won't likely have a direct local distribution service. Underground cabling is only feasible in Towns and Cities, elsewhere an overhead route and dropwires are used. If you are rural and there are no telephone poles anywhere to be seen, you may have a problem. Check with neighbours or the village shop, have they got service.

Else apply to BT with your postcode for service and see what they say.

The thing is I don't think, with a little help from traveling north of the Caledonian Canal for a few months checking that LOS paths agreed with the calculated results, that there are many inhabited places that don't have BT copper coverage on mainland UK. We never had any problems calling our boss, or once we had their number talking to the other teams about plans for the next day.

P.S. As a result of that little period, I hate caravan owners.

I take it that you had your injections and had to show your passport?

Only when I go east, into white rose territory.
But it is a good idea to take bug repellent in the warmer months (I don't think it can pass for summer under most descriptions).

Hehehe, now come on young man, that all ended in 1487

No, that was the end of the beginning.

My brother-in-law studied there, but he doesn't understand, he's half Canadian.

I must say the Yorkshire dialect is very funny.
Sounds like they always whining about something.
My grandfather also came from "Gnäll bältet", the Whining Belt:)

Nice weather today :)
Yes, today :(

I just phoned my x wife and wished her a happy mothers day. Unfortunately it may not actually be mothers day. She was happy for the thought.

Chris, maybe thinking twice from a different perspective before posting would save the wear'n'tear on that sofa mate. ;-)

Some may feel that their "Gut Feelings" are honest 1's Chris, but by the time that you air them in public others find huge holes in them and that's why others of late have been poking their fingers through some of your hol..., er, posts. ;-)

The old tradesman theory of measure twice before cutting can also be applied to thinking twice before posting, the "gut feeling" usually brings a lot of people disaster just like a bad cut. ;-)

But then that's likely why you posted, "From him that has a reputation for insulting whole countries!!", very likely because you don't think 1st and then wonder why you get some flack later.

Have a good day buddy.

Cheers.

I am?

You are?

No skin off or brown stuff on my nose.

Just live with then and expect the repercussions.

But thinking twice with a good dose of common sense (you use to have that) thrown in first goes a lot further these days with better mileage. ;-)

[edit] Anyhow I'm copping some flack here so we'll take this up again tomorrow if you like.

Cheers.

In 2017, science is a political tennis ball being served hard and fast.
It's a buffet from which people on the left and right cherry pick their information.
It's something to be believed in or doubted.

Personally I have zero problem with people ruining as many machine as they like, good luck to them.
As I have had cause to comment before, you just can't get the staff these days.


No such thing as "staff" they are colleagues now.

Wiggo, you are a bit late to the party! There has been a concerted effort by a group of people to gang up on me for about 6 months now. I just think it is very childish.

Inmates Can Now Have Pizza Delivered To Their Cells At Cook County Jail

COOK COUNTY (Illinois) JAIL — Some inmates at Cook County Jail can now have fresh brick-oven pizza delivered straight to their cells, thanks to a new program from Sheriff Tom Dart's office.

The 10-inch pizzas, which are made on-site by fellow inmates, start with a margherita base and can include several toppings. Prices range from $5 to $7, according to Cara Smith, Dart's chief of policy.

The pizza program grows out of an existing partnership with chef Bruno Abate, who owns Tocco in Wicker Park. For the past several years, Abate has taken inmates under his wing to teach them how to prepare fresh food in a donated wood-burning oven.

Smith said more than 210 pizzas have been sold since April 20.

"The [cooking] program provides job training, extra custody credit and life skills," Smith said. "Some have left the program and found jobs in the community. When we equip people with skills before they're released, we reduce the likelihood that they'll come back."

"This is a win-win situation," Smith added, "and we don't have many of those around here."

Sunday, May 7th, is the World's Laughing Day. A laugh should prolong life and be good for us, but why do we really laugh? We have asked Sophie Scott, professor of cognitive neuroscience at the University College of London, who research on laughter.
A laugh prolong life, you say. Is it true?
"I do not find any equivalent to the expression here in England, but you Swedes may laugh more!"

A most appropriate response indeed :-))

Solar roof tiles, now that is an idea that might take off.

In my area of this country. We have enough weather events that take roof shingles to flight.
