  1. Flightritght it is quite difficult to understand your point of view, you never really get past one liners. It seems to me that you are against mass vaccination. Saying that "there will always be another virus" is true but this does not mean you do not tackle the disease before you at the moment. As a child I remember receiving antibiotics for a throat infection. I guess you advice would have been that there is no point in treating it because there will always be another illness. These diseases have been vastly reduced by vaccination. Surely a good thing? diphtheria

  4. I just went up to our local newsagency to pick up a copy of todays Herald-Sun which is supposed to contain a lift-out booklet on Melbourne Storm,as my daughter is a devout Storm supporter. The newsagent said, "Sorry, no Herald Suns." Not because he had sold out - because Herald-Sun refused to supply him UNTIL HE HANDS OVER HIS LIST OF DELIVERY CUSTOMERS - so they can pester them into taking out prepaid subscriptions. He refused. I wouldn't buy their rotten rag to wipe my ....

I hate to say it, although I don't spend much time with it lately as I am no longer in software engineering, I probably have seen a lot more of the current source code of the kernel and modules that is still in operation that you have.. unless you too have contributed to the kernel or could be bothered downloading the source and reading it.. If you have, respect, but to claim it leads me to think that you probably haven't. BTW, t

  11. Even junk mail has gone to the wall. Our local paper stopped printing over 12 months ago and went online. My daughter delivered the paper while it was going, and also catalogues, a a second job. It dropped to just Aldi catalogues and the monthly council newsletter, but a few weeks ago even they stopped. The company controlling it all lost too much money and went out of business. At least the newsagency still has magazines, stationery, greeting cards and the like.

  13. Or you wouldn't get them in your bags, once place I delivered papers from used to make us put rubber bands round all the papers. This used to take a long time but it was in a posh area and got more than kids on other rounds, you had to earn that prestige round. I got one of those because was always first at the shop and was happy to deliver mistakes, whilst the other kids were in a hurry to get him have breakfast and get to school. Don't think he ever worked out. didn't have home and never went to school. Haven't bought a newspaper for well over a decade, unless it was a local one

  14. Just in my humble opinion, no. Don't get me wrong I am a keen flight simmer and there is much you can learn around procedures and navigation etc. Again just my humble opinion but that aircraft seems like an awfully complex aircraft for a first plane. I suspect it would require quite a few years of training as well as a number of endorsements. I would suspect that the majority of pilots flying such an aircraft would get there via a humble Cessna or similar aircraft. However that's just my thoughts on it. I am sure others here will have opinions. Again flight sim can help with procedur

  15. Flying a big kite up to the jet stream has been proposed 30 years ago or more. It would be a good way to extract energy, but it sure seems a difficult way to do it. Very pie in the sky, methinks. Another good idea is that a mountain-top at the moon's pole would get sunlight 24/7. This could provide lots of power, some of which could smelt moon-rocks and some could be microwaved home to earth to ( hopefully) pay the bills.

  16. Download a flavour of linux, I recommend mint for those starting out in linux as it's really easy to use and one of the most popular for newbies. Put it on a USB stick, shut down your computer and then start it from the USB, It will load and you can check it out without installing it. If you want to install it, you can do that from the live session you've been checking out and it will tell you what to do, select install beside windows and then let it do it's thing. When it's done you can continue with the live session, or reboot and up will come a choice of windows or linux. If you

Here is some info on it: https://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/nipah-virus It is definitely an issue, and worryingly, "There are currently no studies on viral persistence in bodily fluids or the environment including fruits." However, on transmission (human to human): "During the later outbreaks in Bangladesh and India, Nipah virus spread directly from human-to-human through close contact with people's secretions and excretions. In Siliguri, India in 2001, transmission of the virus was also reported within a health-

  27. I'll be booking my flights back to Aus at the end of Sep (hopefully) as QNATAS and other airlines have announced they intend to return to flying to Aus in December/January, so hopefully that will put downward pressure on the airfares (£6k/$11.5K at the moment for economy and not guaranteed.. but here the rules are strict about refunds). So, am looking at how they are intending to handle air re-circulation. I will try to get a booster jab for my partner and I before we go. The offspring's jabs will be well in date and they are both healthy (to our knowledge), so while there will be trepidation,

  28. Probably not. The school supplied laptops have to look up to see the bottom of the barrel, and any software they run is unique to the laptop OS, or has been designed in-house. Even the software for my grandson's homeschooling that he is using on a PC is not very well designed.

  31. It would generally cost fuel. Maybe some kind of a filter/virus killer (UV rays?) I believe you'd have to ELIMINATE recirculation as you want NO contamination likelihood like you get in hotels. It's not droplets it's aerosolling like exhaling smoke the bug goes where the smoke would. Nev

  33. All eventually leaves through leaks and the outflow valves which regulate the pressure to keep the cabin height below 10,000 ft. Max pressure differential about 8.6 PSI. Often one air conditioning pack is shut down to save fuel in cruise and the air quality suffers more. Some aircraft turn off all airconditioning packs for take off to get the full power from the engines. Those adjustable overhead vents vents don't flow any air till power reduced on climb out.. I think the cockpit is the only area to get an independent supply of non recirculated air probably to cover the cabin fire in flight

  34. COVID regulations have brought about a change to an old joke. An old Irish priest was walking past a New York synagogue when an equally old rabbi came down the synagogue steps to the footpath. As he did he moved his right arm over his body, from head to waist, then shoulder to shoulder. "Ah, Rabbi!", called the priest. "Have you converted to the True Faith in your old age?" "No," replied the rabbi. "I'm just off to do some shopping and was checking that I had everything" "But you crossed yourself in the Christian way," said the priest. "No," explained the

I've been using it pretty much since it started - 15 years or so - and don't get spam. It all goes to a "spam" folder and auto deleted every so often, so I never actually see it.

Everything old is new again! https://www.dezeen.com/2020/10/22/wallenius-marin-oceanbird-ship-wind-design/ When you consider the advances made in hull design since 1850, and in materials since the first copper plates were tacked onto wooden hulls, it is not drawing too long a bow to seeing the merchant marine utilising the replenishable energy of the wind. Also, with modern weather forecasting and oceanography it would be possible to lay out courses that took maximum advantage of Nature's freebies to motion. The article says that the designed ship using wind power

I had an enlarged prostrate a few years ago, which put down to the huge amount of alcohol drunk in the band over the years. Then decided to stop drinking except on very special occasions as it was becoming boring and no longer handled the next morning feelings. Within 2 years of no grog at all the symptoms disappeared, this amazed the medical profession and they did a heap of tests and scans to figure out why. No matter how much told them it was because of my lifestyle and diet, alon

  42. Hasn't paid me a visit yet, again it all depends on lifestyle, diet and approach to life. From my viewpoint, older ladies really appreciate older men who are not restricted is their approach to them, they are very responsive and grateful. I get more smiles and aproaches today from ladies than when young, of course playing in a band does make a bit of a difference.😎😇😁

  47. Bruce, this may help you rest a bit easier: Can the vaccine cause erectile dysfunction? Given the concern that COVID-19 may cause ED, you may be worried about the vaccines causing ED. Currently, the clinical trial data from the Moderna, Pfizer-BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines show that the vaccines may cause pain or swelling where you received the vaccine and side effects like nausea, vomiting, headache, chills, or fever. But, none of the manufacturers listed any issues related to sexual health or ED in their reports. So it appears it's the virus, not the
