Re: Thomas Cook

a nice job if you can get it ? Cook's boss gets a £500,000 bonus https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-50053594 But that sort of thin happens so often. e.g. the much loved Jamie Oliver who so many felt sad for when his companies went bust earlier this year. Except: Jamie Oliver paid himself £5.2m des...

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

I wonder if the aspects of the rules on Kosher and Halal slaughter constitutes religious discrimination. Why can Halal slaughter only be carried out by a Muslim (and Kosher slaughter only carried out by a Jew). I feel discriminated against as I'm an atheist and I (probably) feel discriminated agains...

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

OK so we're all ok with Halal butchery ????? As long as the animals don't smell of chlorine ??? I don't eat meat. I'd rather that no, or at least many fewer animals died to feed humans, but most Halal slaughter includes stunning the animals prior to slaughter. To be Halal, means the animal must be ...

Re: Phone with google

I've just tried some other headphones and it works. It does seem that headphones trigger assist. No headphones came with the phone. Unfortunately for obvious reasons I want small earphones. I will need to get in touch with where I bought the phone (BT) Thanks guys. Check for differences between the...

Re: Phone with google

The phone is brand new. I will try podcasts on the iPad. But when I away I only want the phone with me. Two separate problems, I'm afraid If it's a newer device there are far better apps (in my opinion) than Apple's built-in podcast app, but they may no longer be supported on older devices (depends...

Re: Recommend me a tent for a world tour

But with the Hubba Hubba, can't you pitch the fly only? Fast and Light I think they call it. But if you do then you can't (sensibly, at least) put up the inner, and you can't dismount the inner as a first thing when taking it down. It's better than not having the option, but I'd sooner have a dismo...

Encrypted can be decrypted (or is designed to be decrypted). Hashed is not designed to be un-hashed.

Re: Is Trump Mad?

It gets better every day. This from the T creature : Kurds 'didn't help us with Normandy' Oh I see. Very remiss of those dastardly Kurds, not lifting a finger to help out despite the Normandy beaches being virtually on their doorstep........ Just a pity that Trump is so naive about history. True, t...
