Re: Stuff Windows 10

First. Under falling over water effect! But really. For a bunch of TDM educated people. Your still fighting the total uselessness of Win10 and it's running 'upgrade'. 8 pages here and still.. Shake me head in wonderment. Isn't there a "Do Not Look For Upgrade" toggle? I still run doze7 SP1 from a CD...

Re: Nicotine and vape

I still smoke one cigarette in the evening but that's only to... reward myself for the hard work on my bad habits. This very last bad habit will find some substitute - maybe a good "welcome back" beer. Ahhhh, the only thing better than a nico hit, A cold dark beer.. $11 Au. a pint now. And me being...

Re: Nicotine and vape

Late 70's, early 80's The tax collected on tobacco alone was double the cost of the NHS I had an interesting discussion with the chest consultant regarding my contribution to the Exchequer via tobacco duty. As a general rule, consultants see themselves as superior to us mortals - an attitude which ...

Re: Nicotine and vape

I didn't mention the falling over water tax. Any idea how much that is in tax? The high 90's% on every sale, then VAT on top. Remember when most smoked and almost everyone went to the local. So where does the gov get the dosh from now? No free meals for kids in school... No free school.. Medical for...

Re: Nicotine and vape

If you don't mind a comment from a non-smoker, the stuff smells even worse than cigarettes in any sort of confined space. It's supposed to be banned on buses in London, but the top decks usually stink of the stuff, and I know at least one person who is violently allergic to it. Don't mind at all. I...

Re: Nicotine and vape

Thanks everyone for the insights I never wanted to quit smoking, but at $70 for 50g and papers 2 or 3 times a week, well, way outside my income. Didn't have a clue about how it smells to non smokers, will really keep that in mind. Don't think your allowed to vape in enclosed space here in Oz, the sa...

Oi, Sarcasm mode?

Ain't that for oldies?

Youngsters that think it sarcky, just don't know.

And YES. The best space game on the planet is free and made by less sarcky people that enjoy fun of handwavium physics.

OS and Connections

Thanks. There's such much malware these days that I wonder whether, on Windows, I should go back to running more than minimal real-time protection (aside from various browser addOns, that I do have). I might even need something (aside from the aforementioned addOns, together with security patches a...

Re: A question for Elite 1984 experts

This is an Oolite thing. I played the first Elite thoroughly. May have missed quite a few things, but don't remember a system out of reach. That would have been a total waste of very limited memory.
