Beleagured Theresa May 'to quit as Prime Minister on August 30, 2019 in a bid to stop a leadership challenge' - as she tries to calm rivals with a prosecco party at Chequers

Theresa May is said to have revealed the date she will quit as Prime Minister - giving herself two years to see Brexit through first.

She has chosen Friday August 30th 2019 as the day she will step down from 10 Downing Street, it has been reported.

It comes amid a major charm offensive by Mrs May in a bid to win the support of her MPs and avoid an awkward leadership challenge.

This man is going to become Prime Minister on 1st September 2019 and it's going to be fucking awesome.

I'm in the market for a laptop, but I'm not sure if I can get away with meeting all my criteria.

- It'll be purely for business, the most demanding thing it will be opening is numerous Chrome tabs.
- It needs to run Windows software, with MS Office.
- I want it to be lightweight and no bigger than an A4 pad.

Is there any chance of me getting this for around £200?

I've been seeing refurbished X series Thinkpads from as little as £100, but maybe this is dodgy?

Do you lads know of something better?

I have seen the FHD mod, though I've heard some people say that you can get flickering issues and such. I'm happy enough with the size it is, personally. I had planned to get a nice big monitor for my desk for working on bigger stuff, but honestly I've not felt the need yet.

Here's mine. 2.5" hard drive for scale.

Hello again lads. I still haven't bought a new bastard laptop and have been struggling along with the X100e. It's unusably slow.

At some point I intend to drop £300 - £400 on a decent one. The other ThinkPads looked great, but I've also been tempted away by the IdeaPad.

That aside, is there anything I can do to make the x100e perform better until I'm sure I can spunk the money? It's crippled with running a few tabs with Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 at the moment. Any recommendations?

Install an SSD, if it doesn't already have one.
Install more RAM, if it's not already maxed out.
Install a lightweight Linux distribution if you swing that way, such as Xubuntu.

If you want to stick with Windows, try disabling all graphical effects and the like.

As said, an SSD is a huge performance boost in older machines. You can also try to blast out any dust that might (definitely will) be caking the cooling fans and vents, as if it's running hot enough the CPU might be thermal throttling too, I've seen that happen a lot.

It probably isn't worth upgrading. The x100e has a feeble single-core Athlon Neo processor with a PassMark score of 409. It was piss-poor in 2010 and it's utterly unusable today. By comparison, the slowest processor in Intel's current desktop lineup has a Passmark score of 3,269 and an i7-7700k scores over 12,000. No matter what you do, it's grossly bottlenecked by that dog of a processor.

You don't need to spend £300 to get something vastly quicker than your current machine. A Thinkpad X220 will set you back about £120; the default processor in that machine is an i5-2520M, which has a Passmark score of 3,588. The very cheapest Chromebook would be a significant upgrade, as would any old laptop with an Intel Core-series processor.

A lightweight Linux distribution might help a bit. If you're not using an adblocker, for the love of god install uBlock Origin - ads and ad trackers have a huge CPU load. Firefox Reader Mode is very useful on slow machines, because it strips out all of the CSS and Javascript.

If you cut the stipe on those ones and it stains reddish or rusty after a few minutes and eventually turns brown then they're great to eat. If its the kind with a greenish sport print then it awful and you'll get sick. The good kind used to be called Lepioda Rachodes, but mushroom taxonimists keep on changing it's official name so I don't know what its called these days, but its still edible regardless.

>A homeless man who stole a purse and a phone from victims of the Manchester Arena attack has admitted theft.

>Chris Parker, 33, was initially dubbed a hero after claiming he comforted a seriously injured girl. CCTV footage played to Manchester Crown Court showed him wandering between stricken victims. He kept returning to injured Pauline Healey, whose granddaughter lay dying nearby, before leaning over her and taking her handbag to steal her purse.

I don't get why bleeding heart do-gooders bleat on about the homeless. They're all scratters who are on the streets through choice, usually because they choose not to stay in a hostel as they know they wouldn't be allowed to do drugs there.

The pipe in 8024 you use like a normal pipe. You load things in the end and then you hold it to a flame at an angle ideally something like a candle as you pull (unless you like inhaling lighter gas and using shit loads of matches). The one in your picture looks like (it is hard to make out from this angle) a crack pipe you drop your drug into the lightbulb end, cook it with a flame underneath and then inhale.

can't unionize if you don't have a job.

Nursing is also a much more niche skill, and the value dictated heavily by a nationalised industry, brain drain and retaining people trained specifically for that role.

I haven't had been in a relationship or had sex for over 2 and a half years.

There's probably lots of things factoring into this. A year and a half of it I was working in a small office, not really interacting with many new people. I also spent immense amounts of time studying, saving money and planning for the future during my free hours. This has paid off, now, but I think there's more to it. There's an underlying issue here.

I know it's not down to my appearance or social skills, because even with this ascetic kind of life I would still occasionally get interest from the odd work colleague or friend-of-a-friend.

I think it's more down to the fact my last two relationships were really traumatic in a way I haven't fully acknowledged. One simply cut off contact without preamble and never gave a reason why. The other cheated during a period of long distance, and let me find out by myself after months of lying.

It's made me extremely reluctant to reach out to people, even if I find them attractive. I'm a sensitive person, anyway, but combined with that rough history I find myself overanalysing the words and actions of others looking for signs that I might get hurt again. Even worse, the more I look at relationships as a whole, the more I realise this kind of thing isn't atypical in the slightest (you could even argue I've got off lightly in terms of baggage). I've started to find how people treat eachother a little disgusting, and even dangerous.

I really value love and close one-to-one relationships. I have a degree of closeness with friends, but there's no physical intimacy at all, nor a sense of really experiencing life "together".

This leaves me with a painful ambivalence that's hard to let go of. I truly want to meet people and believe I have a lot to give, but I am also hyper-cautious and finding myself becoming increasingly critical of people and bitter about what happened -- making it very unlikely I'll ever get past those tricky first hurdles with any new person.

I've been telling myself that I've just been focusing on myself and my career. I have had plenty of success there. But that's not the reason I've remained single.

I realise you might not be able to reply yet but I'll wait for an answer. What part of revealing in your misery do you think is positive? There is nothing to beneficial to being long suffering and it isn't a contest. Please don't take what I just said the wrong way. I want you to be happier and more satisfied with life, but you aren't doing yourself any favours by sneering at others, you can't get out of a hole by digging yourself deeper into it and trying to pull down others who are trying to get out.

Does it? Or are you irrationally embittered? If I brake my toe and fucking hurts the fact you lost your leg in a car accident years before doesn't mean I'm not allowed to be in pain and mention that I am. If i lose my child you shouldn't be telling me a hundred children starved to death in Bangladesh so i can't complain.

What you are doing is a form of narcissism. You are thinking only of how things apply directly to you. But paradoxically you You don't look to your achievements you look to how much you have suffered. No one is allowed to suffer unless they have it worse then you. You despise sympathy others receive because you are envious of it. You feel you deserve that sympathy but no one is giving it to you. None of this is constructive to helping you feel better. No one can actually help you if you wallow in your misery. At the moment you are just forcing yourself lower.

If you want help ask for it. Don't just be bitter because someone else did and they got it.

The administration team at work are petrified of thinking for themselves. I had one of them approach me yesterday because they'd noticed an issue with something submitted to them. It turned out there were five separate issues with it and they came over five different times because it didn't occur to them once to review the entire thing to see if there was anything else wrong with it; every time they spotted an issue they just rushed over. I tried asking them a few basic things about each one and it was clear they hadn't even thought of doing even a bit of rudimentary digging around to see if there was background information which would mean the things they'd raised weren't even a problem. They have to be spoonfed absolutely everything.

It's an open plan office and some of the inane things they come out with are absolutely shocking. Several of them couldn't name where Sydney is and actually thought Australia was a state in the USA. I just can't comprehend what it would be like to be in my twenties and have no ambition to do anything more than administration, having the same mindless conversations every weekday for the next forty years or so.

It's too tight both around my shoulders and upper back and my stomach. Owed to the fact that I have been working out the last couple of years at a gym regularly, but also been putting on a few pounds around my waist.

For the most part, strength is mass. Outside of athletes and people taking exogenous hormones, I think it's underestimated how much effort, care, planning and consistency it takes to be both big and lean.

At least, I'd consider myself into weight training and even though I'm a very practical eater, I find it hard to do anything but seesaw between big, strong and fluffy and leaner but flatter.

I actually dreamed last night that I was in Australia, visiting the two blokes from the Foster's adverts in their beach hut. Sure enough, they gave me a Foster's, and I said "cheers, guys"... and then one of them said to me "oh no mayt, we don't say cheers heere. We say 'You little ripper!'"

Quite bizarre... has this dream got any deeper meaning, or have I just been watching too much telly lately?

There are basically two ways this can go depending on how the original pitch was done.

1) Netflix phones up Matt and says "hey we've got a few million bucks hanging around doing nothing, want to cook us up a pilot series for a new show?" The result will be an obvious load of total bollocks (actually what we've seen so far in season one)

2) Matt has a fantastic idea with a layered and self-referencing plot, a la Futurama, and has convinced Netflix to back this new vision. Hopefully, the result of this will be a fantastic show.

Tl;dr - the future of this show was decided when it was pitched, by who pitched it to whom.

I admittedly didn't watch much of Futurama past the first season but I got the impression that was a load of bollocks too. Cardboard cutout characters in a setting where literally anything can and does happen.

I don't want to drop spoilers here but there are plot points way down in season five and six and if you zoom back to s1e1 and check for.... things.... it was all pre-planned from the start, which was pretty impressive for an animated show that most people just wrote off as "Simpsons In Space" when it first came out.

Can anyone who has lived in a block of flats or who has friends who live in a block of flats tell me what methods of payment for electricity are used to provide electricity to flats?
I may be moving to a single flat in Nottingham and I am wondering whether the bills are split and averaged between several flats, or whether each flat has a prepayment meter or a traditional meter. Do I pay the electricity company directly or the owner of the building etcetera?
What have you seen?

Usually each flat has its own meter, though depending on the development there may be a shared meter room with all the meters in.

Depends. In addition to the things you've mentioned you also get councils operating as utility resellers who have to follow statutory and ombudsmen guidelines as to what they charge.

Set monthly payment for utilities to the landlord is what I've come to expect if you're renting something small for graduates. Sounds naff but it works out as a little cheaper in my experience. Be sure to check if the internet is included as that will mean you're locked into BT shite.

Bigger flats sort out their own utilities or if it's somewhere grubby you may even find one of those coin-slot things. This is a question for the agent/landlord.

I've not had a coin meter since 1999. I've lived here ten years and it's a credit meter. In-between it was always prepayment meters with a paypoint card. With prepayment, they always lie to you and say you owe them money too. They send you a red letter after you move out. Last time I gave them my final meter reading over the phone they said 'whoops, we accidentally switched the rate 1 and rate 2 (12pm-7am) reading and you don't owe us anything.' They used the exact same excuse with my mate too.

I've known lots of people with prepayment meter who get periodic letters saying they owe money (How? It's prepayment.) and it's not an issue because they've not moved house or switched providers. In fast, they might do it to deter people from switching providers.

/nom/12845 Espresso bollocks
My old man really likes that type of coffee.

I'm thinking about buying him a small semi-auto machine for a birthday gift. There's a wee problem here: I can't figure what exactly I should aim for. Advice on the Net differs: some say the bean quality and the grind uniformity are the things that matter the most, others state that one shouldn't even try to approach espresso without a machine on par with Gaggia Classic / Europiccola, not even mentioning a decent grinder.

Just how important is having a proper coffee hipsterenthusiast endorsed machine? I sense that their advice might be truthful per se but could it be something with diminishing returns compared to a mildly bog standard espresso maker?

The question I would ask, before a pair of inexplicably qualified coffee expert arrive here, is that are you sure your dad will enjoy the faff, fiddling, and 'experience' of being a home barista, or would he actually just want to press a button and get coffee? Be honest.

He might. He did all that jazz on his previous job. As far as I can judge it wasn't too much nuisance for him, perhaps even some sort of a rather pleasant ritual.
He has one, I think. It's a good little thing but the coffee it makes is of different kind, despite being brewed by pressure too.

The middle ground option would be a semi-automatic machine with a capsule-compatible portafilter. That gives you the choice between doing everything yourself, or just dropping in a capsule if you can't be arsed with grinding and tamping.

As regards the original question, I think that entry-level machines have improved greatly in recent years. Cheap fully-automatic capsule machines make a perfectly decent espresso, they just lack the level of control that hobbyists want.

I worked for an insurance middleman who were not Gocompare and had someone call us, evidently pissed out of his head, whining at us about the Gocompare man. I didn't get to hear the call but apparently it was hilarious. The best part is that even though the handler could tell it was a joke, because he mentioned blowing up the office we had to refer it to the police, so he almost certainly got a visit.

The old thread is well over 30MB, so I think we're due a new one.

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.

Fuck off.

Please highlight to me where I said that. While of course a great deal of art is created with the aim of making money, these are explicitly for the purpose of making you spend money elsewhere, without any real motivation behind the 'message'.

It has as much 'motivation behind the message' as anything else. The main purpose is to make you spend money, and it can do other things as well. People who are looking forward to the John Lewis ad are excited about the story or the aesthetics, and what's wrong with that exactly just because it's also selling stuff at the same time? It can be good at both.

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.

I challenge you lads to find a more pointless news story than this.

Not really, no. The real Alice Cooper still today looks a lot better in his old age than that lad from the tribute band.
