    how crap is this government ?

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-24/nsw-election-result-will-expose-coalition-cracks/10933206 The take from the NSW election, regional seats are now threatened for LNP. The city seats held strong and but the massive safety margins for the Nats in regional Australia is gone. In some cases, the Nats lost seats. The ALP are too city-centric still. The Greens will still be PITA for the major parties as they aren't going away.
  2. So you're not doing any RAID of any type? PS I'm guessing you're in Ireland from the links

    Note the protest vote going the SFF party because the Nationals and Libs have abandoned the regional areas

    Looks like not much change in the seats in NSW, a shuffle in some seats but no real change. So the LNP has a mandate to sell everything not nailed down and building unwanted stadiums

    Problems with the 737MAX ?

    And the optional feature will mandatory on those airlines! https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-22/boeing-plans-to-reverse-optional-safety-feature-on-737-max-fleet/10928066

    Boeing were charging extra for "optional" safety features in the Max 8s. Well if you're a tightass airline who doesn't want pay extra for anything, I guess you don't get that feature! And that feature just happened to be one which could saved the crashed planes. https://www.popularmechanics.com/flight/airlines/a26899044/boeing-charged-extra-safety-feature/

    Looks like China isn't buying anymore Max8s either ... as part of this trade war

    Apparently there was loophole you could buy a semi-auto for pest control. So some farmer needs say an AK-47 to shoot rabbits?

    Semi-autos will be banned soon in NZ, the loopholes will be closed. Only takes one nutter to cause this as we know.

    The Cyclone Trevor looks like a monster cyclone, those Gulf cyclones can be nasty.

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-21/lion-air-pilots-were-consulting-handbook-when-plane-crashed/10922820 Seems like the manual for the plane + inadequate training didn't help in the Lion Air crash

    This crap laptop was intended for just me installing random linux even maybe Chrome OS. It will work but I have remember to throttle CPU, easy on Windows but Linux requires a bit more work

    It was free, I wouldn't have paid for it otherwise.

    FAA in the past has too slow to act when they knew of flaws in planes but took far too long to get anything done.

    I saw a video how to get the fan ... which means pulling about pretty much most of the internals (and 100x tiny screws) as well as those internal cables you have to avoid breakinf

    This thing was hitting past 105C, halving the clock speed dropped it to a less toasty 80C. That's 80C just doing stuff like windows updates without gaming of any sort! Add to that this laptop has just bad cooling by design. I now have to work out how to get Linux installs to throttle the CPU so I don't toast the machine. The Dell BIOS sucks, no clock speed control.

    The crappo Dell Vostro is now sorta usable. It turns out the entire Dell Vostro series had crap cooling, even when the laptop is brand new. I forced the CPU to run at 50% max, normally the i5-520M would run at 2.4 and boost to 2.9. Now the base clock is 1.2 and boosts to 1.5 instead. Haven't pulled it apart but I suspect that would not solve the overheating even if I put in a new exhaust fan. Only 1 exhaust fan ... the CPU is cooled with a piddly heat sink. Managed to get the thing run run under 80C with clock speed throttling. It does actually use SATA drives but the connector to the motherboard is a weird looking thing which looks like PATA from an angle but it's not like a normal SATA connector you'd expect.

    Soon to be unemployed, 900 financial parasites! Sorry financial advisors ... the kind who sell you investments which don't make money for you. Good riddance https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-03-19/westpac-expected-to-slash-900-jobs/10916318?section=business

    Oh yes, that laptop uses PATA/IDE drives! Which is really annoying

    Yes I will have clean the bloody thing out, but I think being like 10 years old - maybe one of the CPU or/and GPU fans have failed as well.
