I'm a bit thick so you will have to walk me through this OP.

The company resells utility services to businesses, right?

But from the Vocaroo, they want to pretend that they either are Openreach or they have a exclusive contract with Openreach or whatever?

Why does being Openreach give them an advantage in selling a service? Will the business think the service is being provided directly from Openreach and if so why is that better than any other company? I don't get it.

Openreach are the people who own the physical network. If your phone line goes down and they need to send an engineer out to do work on the line, it will be an openreach engineer. They are very well known and respected. Also same for having a line installed - openreach are who will show up.

It means he might still be, just, alive. You lose almost all of your legal rights when you die, particularly around privacy, defamation and libel. There has been absolutely no denial from his management, lots of subtle hints on his Twatter (look out for which charities he wanted people to donate to), but the poor lad is on deaths door and it will come out soon.

A bit dark for Are Pete, his limit was a bit of blue for the dads, but I have to admit that my mirth was audible when I first read this post and it still gives me a giggle now.

Another one I just came up with just now was:

What's the name of the feeling when you don't know if Peter Kay is alive or dead? Garlic dread .

Obviously it's not even a patch on yours, though.

If you believe the twitters, news should be out after Friday. I barely know what day of the week it is most of the time and if I were sober enough I'd set up a google alert for "peter kay" but as it is I just keep typing the fat fucker's name into google on my phone whenever my brain idles out and I think "oh yeah, wait, what was I doing". Which is happening a lot lately.

There is another Docu about masons on BBC2 Scotland about the Grand Lodge of Scotland on Monday at 9 o'clock called "Secrets of the Masons", which looks like it could be quite interesting.

That's very common. Once the food slips, everything does. As soon as complaints start to feel consistent, it will stick, and even the part-time student servers notice it. Waiters are a whole other world to me, but they often get paid more than management (tips really do add up) so it's very much their market. They're very much like rats, they can sense a sinking ship. And thus you end up only left with the shite ones.

/g/26383 Shoreham Air Disaster - embracing failure and the AAIB
I'm a huge believer in embracing failure in technology - create a psychologically safe space where people can talk about what went wrong without fear or favour. No blame. The Air Accident Investigation Board (AAIB) is the absolute best in any business at this.

Not much will be written about this as it is now a court case and the pilot is being charged with manslaughter - but everything is in that report. Amazing work.

Every geek can learn from this.

Also please forgive the clinical tone and so forth. This is what background chatter sound like in Whatton prison, FYI! .

I am not claiming to blame the victim at all, i am merely saying that actually doing sex offences fucks up your mind somewhat and so ex-sex-offenders are victims in the sense of someone damaged by the event - this is never emphasized in the mainstream media.

/g/26357 Dodgy batteries
Hello brain trust.

What are our thoughts on third party laptop batteries?

I very much love my X220 and don't want to let it go, but both of the official batteries I have are about a third of the capacity they're supposed to be now.

There are still official Lenovo batteries on the market (for 80 quid) but I would assume these things have been sitting on shelves for long enough that they're probably half dead anyway.

Are Chinese knock-offs really that bad? I'd have thought we were at a stage in battery technology where they're probably as good as the ones made in the 'official' Taiwanese factory anyway. But at the same time I'm very aware that the potential for disaster is fairly high in a Li-ion pack.

Another possible move is that these battery packs are just a big plastic case full of 18650 cells. It's within my capabilities to spudge one open and replace the old cells with new 'trusted' ones, but it's a lot of hassle if the chinese ones aren't going to set fire to my cock.

Any thoughts? Do you trust the Chinese?

Oh man, I have always always wanted to do that. I don't know why we aren't doing a load more tidal and hydro in the UK, we're surrounded by water. Seems obvious, though I understand the engineering challenges.

That's exactly what I was thinking. I think it's plausible with that sort of power storage, too.

I worked for a restaurant once that was talking about piping steam and heat from the kitchen to partially power the place somehow. I do hope they did it, though it sounded a bit like a pipe dream (no pun intended) at the time.

> Perhaps the charge lost on a stored battery is still better than the charge that will be rapidly lost in the first few months of a shite chinese clone, but I can't find anything other than opinion on this.

My personal experience is that my own rebuilt pack with good Panasonic 18650s performed and lasted better than an old-stock original pack, which in turn performed better than all of the several cheap ones I bought in the Huaqiangbei market. In fact the only thing the latter were good for were stripping down to reuse with better cells.

Mark Zuckerberg announced in September 2017 his plan to sell 35 to 75 million Facebook shares over the course of 18 months to his venture philanthropy foundation, which certainly isn't a tax dodge in more than one way, and these are being sold under SEC Rule 10b5-1 which means that a predetermined number of shares are sold at a predetermined time, often regular intervals, to try to avoid insider trading.

Zuckerberg has actually been selling large quantities of shares on a regular basis since at least August 2016 - - so what's happened is that someone has taken a snapshot out of context to try and shit stir, safe in the knowledge that most people either won't understand what they're looking at so will jump to conclusions or they won't try to look at it objectively because it fits in with their pre-existing biases.

I don't know if I'm just misreading it, but I can't get those numbers to add up. How does someone with 9,342,383 shares sell 465,400 shares and end up with 9,131,983 shares? I know Trump's still in the White House but I don't think his reality distortion powers extend to making maths work differently so I suspect I'm missing something here.

Some cunt threw a firecracker in front of my bike today. If I hadn't seen the little scrote and his little scrote mates running I wouldn't have noticed until it was too late.

I feel like there should be a name for the disappointment you feel at finding an over-stewed cup of tea that you began to make an hour ago but got distracted by something on the internet half-way through.

Always feel a bit gutted and disgusted about having to pour it away.

Huddersfield charity shop finally says goodbye to a shutter which lasted 26 years

That's it. That's literally it. A charity shop has replaced one of its roller shutters after having the same one for 26 years. It's all go in Huddersfield.

Prosecutors have dropped their case against a suspected drug dealer who refused to use the toilet after allegedly swallowing substances.

Lamarr Chambers, 24, of Villa Road in Brixton, had been arrested during a police chase in Essex, on 17 January.

Essex Police said it had released him following 47 days in custody after getting medical and legal advice. The Crown Prosecution Service said it discontinued drug charges against him because of "insufficient evidence".

It is understood it is the longest anyone has gone without going to the toilet while in custody.

At least 47 days without having a shit. I don't think I could last 47 hours.

>Man dies after trapping head in cinema seat

>A man whose head became wedged under the electrically powered footrest of a cinema seat has died.

>Vue International said in a statement that the man had died on March 16, a week after the incident at the cinema in the Star City leisure complex in northeast Birmingham. An investigation is continuing.

>Sources quoted in the Birmingham Mail said that the “freak” accident had happened when the man bent down at the end of a film to retrieve a mobile phone that had dropped between two reclining seats in its premium seating area. “As he stuck his head underneath to have a look, the footrest clamped down on to his head. He was stuck and panicking,” the source said.

I'm a learner motorcyclist with a displayed L plate and sticker. I just went for a short spin to post a letter, and even on a round trip lasting less than 10 minutes I got a bit of negative attention.

I admit that I'm generally touching only around 20mph around residential roads and I'm slow to change gear/a bit jerky with the clutch, as I'm still getting a feel for how to ride, but the hostility still surprised me.

An example, a young guy in a BMW was pulling out of a driveway and his car was hanging out halfway in the road. I'm about a hundred yards away, so I pull in the clutch, change down and slow down to let him out. He pulls out all the way but is shaking his head at me as he does so.

Though moments later I did get a thank you wave for letting a car pass the opposite way down a narrow street.

I don't get it. Is this sort of hostility standard on the roads? Maybe towards learners or bikes? Did I miss something, or is it always just chance whether you encounter bad attitudes?

I'm ashamed to say this guy actually handled it a lot more calmly than I did. Then again, he managed to catch up with the person who did it and have a talk, while I was sort of just yelling like a mad cunt as they ran off.

To cut a long story short, there's this girl I've been seeing for 8 months or so now. Far from my first rodeo, but my longest one to date. It's been really great so far for the most part - I always enjoy seeing her, and she always seems happy to see me.

The problem is that, whereas being with other girls always increased my confidence and general happiness, somehow being with her has just led to me becoming more insecure and filled with worries. She's by far the most attractive girl I've ever dated and I just never feel good enough for her.

Rather than getting better it seems to have gotten worse recently. I use any small thing to convince myself she's going to leave me, like most women do once they get to know me. I'm genuinely amazed she ever dated me in the first place. I want to get her out of my head so it will hurt me less, but I can't find anything to replace her.

Reading this back makes me sound a bit mad, but it's an honest account of the loops my mind goes in when not fulfilled by some distraction. Have many of you here felt similar before - is it just one of those things that sorts itself out? I'm not sure how much I should talk to her about it, in my head she'll just think I'm somewhere between overly clingy and mad if I tell the truth.

>he'd made it into a big fancy gesture and all that, middle of a restaurant

Absolutely even more likely to say no, if I was the bird. I think the big public proposal is an awful thing to do to someone, for just the reasons you suggest - you are putting an enormous amount of pressure on someone, in public, to agree to do something really important; I think girls hate it too. I think I would question why that person wanted to do it in public like that.

You're right, it wouldn't be easy.

I agree. I always assume people who do this sort of thing are either 100% sure she'll say yes (let's be honest, we all talk about this shit way ahead of time with our partners? right? I know exactly how my missus thinks about marriage) or are very insecure.

I won't ever get married but I definitely think there's a lack of sentimentality to a public proposal. Maybe that's just an introvert's way of seeing it, though.

If youtube is to be believed, public marriage proposals tend to have a piss poor outcome.

My theory is that they fail because the reasoning behind them is flawed. What is your point in making such a public affair out of it? For some blokes, I am guessing it might be the idea that the lass isn't going to say no in front of a crowd of dozens or even hundreds of random spectators. In which case the question must be, why do you need her in a spot where she isn't going to say no because of public pressure? Would her answer be more iffy under different circumstances? And if yes, then that is kind of a strong indication that she will never say yes to begin with. Not in private with you, not in front of a hundred people.

I have to hand it to my dad, he was subtle and understated. One day, he was sitting in the livingroom of my parents' flat, hidden behind a newspaper, and on page one of his newspaper there was something about some random aristocratic couple that was getting married that week. So my dad just flipped down the upper corner of his newspaper with his finger and looked at my mum and said, "Hm. What do you think, should we get married as well?". My mum had been dying for him to propose, and then just out of nowhere one day came that deadpan and understated move from my dad. Now, THAT is how you propose with a good sense of humour.

I'd probably enjoy doing it, but functionally it's not necessary. Neither me or the missus likes a fuss, and we're pretty certain we're going to grow old together anyway. It seems like a very unnecessary step at this stage. And personally I've always felt it a bit odd to have to declare/promise your commitment? I was planning on that anyways.

Maybe that's a cynical way of looking at it. Did anything change between you and your bird after she became the wife? Or is it more about enjoying the festivities?

Flatmate not-on-contract, promised to pay a last month's rent or get someone for the room, didn't, left, blocked me on FB.

I've got no recourse right? There's messages on facebook confirming various aspects of the deal, but no contract.

He's in a band, do I just stalk all their tour dates and past photos of our facebook conversations like an asshole creep?

These things are upsetting, and I am sure it is a lot of money to you, but honestly? For 200 quid? Let it go.

A contract is offer and acceptance and that can take place in many forms, verbally, by email, by fucking Facebook message if you really want and legal-lad is right in >>26344 but there is also a point where the amount of time and effort it would take to recover the debt far outweighs the benefit. Most lawyers won't tell you this because they're on the clock and are super cautious and precise. But let it fucking go.
