    how crap is this government ?

    He was tackled by at least one person with outstanding arrest warrants. That's the level of restraint you'd expect for someone physically capable of trying to get away vs most of them. It's the level of restraint that saw the security industry hauled over the coals when similar zeal ended up accidentally killing people. That level of restraint night be proportional for Dwayne Johnson, or someone who had tried to shoot or stab or otherwise seriously injure someone. But not someone with an egg. And if as you said he was restrained to stop Anning hitting him... Why wasn't Anning restrained similarly? Also at no point did I give a cheer for the kid. I said he was treated unfairly. So uh... What's that accusation coming from?

    What a joke

    Yeah uh they're hashtags, without the #. Isn't the whole point of posting them so other paranoid delusionals can find you via Google? Keep fighting the good fight against the man, bro, like, totes. You'll totally get taken seriously.

    Indiscriminate would surely involve shooting people who weren't at the mosque, like randoms and passers by? Cos of to go into a mosque and only shot the people there, that sounds like a pretty discriminate choice.

    Oh shoot Walt you forgot your paranoid conspiracy hashtags, code blue code blue the aluminium foil hat has fallen, I repeat, safety hat down!

    how crap is this government ?

    Iirc, Anning jabbed the kid once as a reaction, then went in again (no longer self defence), then the kid was tabled and restrained in a way totally out of proportion with what happened. Given who tackled him, he's lucky they weren't armed or he'd be in hospital. But let's focus on the fact the kid could have glassed Anning hypothetically and that's the same as egging someone as as violent cowardly acts go. Personally I wish eggboy took a page from NZ politics and lobbed sex toys at Anning. Which is just glassing from a distance I guess.

    Dear TMFP

    I remember when I had a monopoly on these kinds of threads. It brings a tear to my eye to see them back in fashion, and just as well received.

    What's on your mind?

    Not interesting in the slightest, tbh. The interesting ones are Skype numbers, or robocalls telling you to call a disconnected number. Occasuonally, via chance, the number is from a town or city with major ATO offices, and that's enough to convince people it must be real.

    W10 15 March update broke my mouse

    Were you worried about losing actual stuff you've downloaded, or a week of updates ago?

    Here's a thought

    Nah, a fair few have been.

    W10 15 March update broke my mouse

    The only other thing I can think of, is have you uninstalled the driver, unplugged the mouse, and then plugged it back in? And if that doesn't work, same same, but reinstall the driver for the mouse before it plugs back in? (I'm not even sure at this point if the issue is with your mouse driver, usb port, or HID subsystem)

    W10 15 March update broke my mouse

    Messing around with partition magic long ago was the reason I've since kept my games on a separate partition, if not drive, to Windows. If I'm reinstalling, it's things like 7zip and irfanview and office, not terrabytes of games. Good luck :<

    W10 15 March update broke my mouse

    Yeah, it's not really called refresh, but it comes up if you search for it. Not sure if that's great or terrible. I've had to do it a few times, most recent being when I dumped the SSD from a dead NUC into a new NUC, and it seemed easier than manually unfucking the mess of drivers and HAL. Read up a little and make sure you're confident in what is kept and what is wiped and what might be coped to a renamed folder for safekeeping. If it's removing ~500GB of stuff, are you able to move it to another partition/drive, first?

    W10 15 March update broke my mouse

    In the start menu, search for 'refresh' / or just bring up the settings window for recovery, and click 'get started' under 'reset this pc'. I assume you've done stuff like move the mouse to a different USB port? Is it a mouse that needs specific third party drivers? Do you have a spare mouse to test if it's an issue with mice in general or that one specifically?

    Juicero!

    ok. So you paid more like 2-3x more for a decade old car than I paid for my decade old car. Doesn't change your argument that a thermomix costs too much considering you can pay a lot less to get the job done.

    Juicero!

    I have no idea what it cost brand new, but it looks like, for something of similar vintage as my little Korean car, it's still twice as much. Totally ignoring the difference in costs of maint, servicing, parts, etc. So I mean, I hope your car lasts you twice as long, at least, to justify driving around your Thermomix.

    At least we're not this bad, yet: https://boingboing.net/2019/03/15/corporate-murder.html 'oh so it's toxic that's ok you're pretty fat these days so you can safely ingest more' Not disputing that. I did say 'most'. I had in mind a whole bunch of SMEs tho', like the majority of hospitality. So, sure, balance and tradeoffs and swings and merrygorounds, that's why big companies earning big money - what is that now, $20m+? - have some different rules for them. I don't want to see everyone brought into line with the same laws, and we finally have the big boys playing nice and doing the right thing, and gut everyone smaller. They kind of have to have a lot of debt, otherwise the greenback can't be used as a reserve currency.

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    I guess they don't need to advertise it too well for external drives, because they're not usually raided. Not that many 'new' drivers use SMR. But at one point a few years ago it was really good GB/$, so I bought a bunch of 8TB ones. They're designed as archival drives, so they take a while to fill up but once that's done they read fine (in my eperience) - which is basically all I want from something powering a HTPC.

    Juicero!

    But if it's all about the price, surely a much cheaper car could deliver you there just as well, with budget space to spare for a bottle of red (not something too expensive tho')

    Tell us again why you like to drive expensive European cars?
