John Cleese is a brilliant fellow, indeed.
I pay $40 (USD) per month for 300Mbps. I peak at around 370Mbps on a regular basis.
My ISP is Spectrum in a small town in Wisconsin, US.
Not too shabby, I think.
I have owned at least one gun for the past 60 years; I now have three.
I sure as hell will not let some wing-nut politician take them away.
Politicians are driven by power and greed. Politicians hate guns because it deprives them of their "fixes". Those bastards are not to be trusted. I fear them more than an attack from any outside source.
Civilian-owned guns are the great equalizer.
And then, buried amongst the latest news on the BBC website, I find an article stating that one single parent of a pupil at the Bob Graham Education Centre, Miami Lakes, Florida, had complained that the poem contained 'hate messages', resulting in the poem being moved to the middle school section, whatever the heck that means. Presumably because younger children would be offended?
Middle school refers to the school years 7- 9. It used to be Junior High school in my day. "Middle" because it falls between elementary (1- 6) and High school (10- 12). Perhaps some nanny found it less demeaning - "middle" vs "junior".
Far be it for me to dabble in American politics, but clearly Trump Mark II, aka, DeSantis, is hell bent on pushing the American psyche way back to the Victorian era.
I find it horrifying.
Me too. Half this country is gulping down the vomit spewed by the likes of Drumpf, Der Santis, MTG, et al...
It is frighteningly reminiscent of Germany once fawning over their god, the maniacal Hitler.
Richard Pedersen , for an idea of order of magnitude, you can divide by 500. So about $12 - $13 US, of which about $4 was for beer.
Time to make a flight reservation?
Thanks for clearing that up for me.
Those are very good prices; I couldn't dine out for that price here even if I was alone.
I could pay for the flight with the money saved on food!
I bought a Guinness yesterday at a very not fancy bar (read "dive"); it cost $4 (US) for a 12-ounce bottle. If I took it home, a 6-pack would have been $10. I guess we have to pay for the "atmosphere" of the not fancy bar.
Being from the US of A, I do not understand the pricing. It can't possibly be $6000+, can it?!
I've never seen this group before. What a light show!!
Dynamic voice... a great loss...
Congratulations and good luck!
You have my warmest wishes for a bright future,
Well any phone actually, because the hover effect is just that, so as far as I know, you can't hover a mobile phone cursor.
Someone prove me wrong please.
On my phone, I can touch and hold an item and in some cases, a menu will open. Isn't that something like hovering?
Second para. be a little gay...
Can someone explain , please.....
That was back when "gay" meant light-hearted, pleasant, happy, etc. It had nothing to do with one's sexual orientation.
Ahhh, those were the days. I was too young to appreciate it back then. Now, I can only dream...
Come to think of it, I don't remember my mother following any of those suggestions.
It has been my experience that most people don't whitelist sites they like. According to metrics, 80% of users are blocking sites' ads. That is a huge amount of lost potential revenue. I work for Dave's Computer Tips and Dave has been paying out of pocket to keep the site going for nearly 20 years now.
The solution is basically this: if you like a site, then whitelist that site in your Adblocker to help keep those sites available for free to the user.
Nobody likes ads, but not all ads are intrusive. Many are simple banner ads or side panel ads that don't flash and annoy. After a while, you won't even see them -- it's called being banner blind. And you don't have to click on them for the site to gain a bit of revenue. They only have to be visible on your screen.
The only recourse in many cases is for the SysAdmins to put up a paywall to cover the costs and this only serves to punish the 20% who are whitelisting sites.
Do it now. While you're thinking about it.
I don't remember the questions, much less the answers We don't say "y'all" up here; that's a southern expression. It's more common to hear something along the lines of "youse guys", although I never use that myself.
The City of Buenos Aires has published its Climate Action Plan 2050, which sets out targeted measures to cut greenhouse gas emissions and increase resilience.
The Argentinian capital has pledged to become climate-neutral by 2050, reducing emissions 53 percent by 2030 and 84 percent by 2050.

There were a notable three:
- George Membrez - History - As an insecure 10th grader, he gave me confidence in myself and allowed me to laugh
- Mrs. Ford - 10th-grade algebra - She made me feel good about myself-- I mattered and felt love and kindness from her
- Buddy Lake - Not a teacher in the public sense, but one who made a drastic difference in my feelings of self-worth. What a wonderful and brilliant man... and a friend, indeed
These folks gave me a positive sense of self that I couldn't have gotten anywhere else. (Certainly not from my family.)
May God bless all these people. They changed my life. I hope they know how grateful I am.
There were others who have helped me along the way but not to this extent,
I took the test and was accurately located in the upper midwest.
That was fun...
I love Flash Mobs 😁
Thanks for sharing!
Happy New Year to all!
