Is it possible to set up a direct debit to a family member? And no I don't mean a standing order.

Wasn't the government keen on everyone having access to at least a basic bank account, regardless of their standing? Do these count?

They're useful for situations where you might not trust the person using them, or the situation you're using them in.
For example some parents give them to teenage children for spending money, you can top it up with just however much you want them to have. They're good if you're travelling and are afraid of losing a card, there's less hassle than losing your main credit card. They're also useful for buying viagra from dodgy websites if you're into that sort of thing.

Some banks allow standing orders to count too instead of direct debits. If you've got a pension, chucking a few quid in there by DD would work.

/g/26816 Best Cartridge under £40?
Alright lads, picture is my Numark GrooveTool cartridge. It's alright, but nothing special.

I'm looking for another cartridge, under about £40. I've seen the Ortofon OM-5E or OM-1S, which seem like the best deals. Is there anything else better in that price range?

Cheers.

You need to adjust your tonearm for the new cartridge. There's probably too much vertical tracking force and too much overhang with the new cart.

I'm almost certain you've checked already, but if two different cartridges sound the same, my instinct that the problem is somewhere else, half unplugged cable, dodgy amp, bad wiring, that sort of thing.

It would only follow that the two were good friends. Keith Flint was always seen by some as the Johnny Rotten of his time.

But yeah, you have to respect that he appears genuinely moved. Kind of makes you forget the things he reportedly said about Donald Trump.

>Self-taught rocket scientist plans launch to test flat Earth theory

>‘Mad’ Mike Hughes, 61, plans to reach an altitude of 1,800ft over California in his home-made steam-powered rocket

>Science is littered with tales of visionaries who paid for pioneering research to prove their theories, and this weekend “Mad” Mike Hughes is hoping to join them. He plans to launch a homemade rocket in California as part of a bid to eventually prove that the Earth is flat.

>Hughes has spent $20,000 (£15,000) building the steam-powered rocket in his spare time, and will be livestreaming the launch over the internet. The self-described daredevil says he switched his focus to rockets after twice breaking his back doing stunt jumps in cars.

Who are they? It's people who are psychically and genetically available to interface in this incredibly diverse universe, with all these dimensions above and below and all around us, with consciousnesses. And the truth is, all energy is never destroyed, it all continues on. The truth is our bodies, this is a fact, are a communal hive organism of all of our ancestors and all of their race memories. But not in just some compressed epigenetic system, it's beyond that, it's an electrochemical antenna (they've proven this), that connects to higher and lower dimensions. So our body suit, because our predecessors wouldn't put us in this position without giving us a bodysuit that is them. Our families are loving us, they are holding us, they are wrapped all round us, their strength, their will, their bad, their good, their sins, the good things they did, the battles they won, the battles they lost, the woman they loved, the man they loved, it's all in us, all these people. It is why we are able to look into so many things and have so many different experiences. And so all the shamans, all the ancient religions, everybody says: there are the good ones and there are the bad ones, and people are interfacing . So you say, where does it begin? From the Tibetans, to the Meso-Americans, to the Egyptians, to the Druids, to every ancient society, describes the same thing. There are bad things that look like elves that have horns, when they show you who they really are. And there are good things, but they don't contact you unless you contact them, and then they are almost not concerned with what you are doing. I never bought into this or looked into it, but then I began to think about what did I hear when I was a kid, what did I see, what was coming out in government documents, what was being admitted? When I read all these books about World War Two and the Nazis and Hitler obsessed with the Dalai Lama and the Tibetans and what they were able to do without drugs and interface with this and all the rituals they would do and how they would believe that beyond the ether, like Skull and Bones which is a German death Cult, they would do rituals and take drugs to talk to the goddesses, and they are just appearing as sexy beautiful women. It is whatever you want as these spirit guides, because lower entities will come in and violate your free will. God and his angels which are below him, will not get involved in your everyday life. They will not manipulate your free will unless you ask them in. The Devil masquerades as an angel of light. So we are on this planet, the third dimension, which is a launch pad to all the other dimensions below and above. The third dimension, all the mathematics shows, is the primal sea of where all this happens, and the earth is like an egg, and we have got all this potentiality and God will send down a transmission for a larger plan, but evil is willing to come in- and what does it say? Demoralise, get rid of children, don't have kids, humans are bad, we will be better once you are all gone. And it is because it is their operational mission, for whatever reason that we will understand later what is going on. So the Nazis, via the deep literature, they believed they were basically seancing and being possessed by entities. It was before the Nazis, for whatever reason it was the Germans that this happened to, and the Swiss. They didn't discover LSD in the thirties. These people were running with the psychology departments, they were interfacing with the occult, they were involved in all this crazy stuff and it was all about their power and how great they were going to be- and the Germans were seduced. They were seduced because they had high IQ's, but more than that they were psychically connected to each other and would work like robots. The Chinese and the EU want robots to replace us because they will follow orders. And the Chinese are very conscious when they are conscious, but they are also very robotic. But the Germans are just as robotic. So this entity system picked Germans as its attempt, even in World War One and World War Two, and it was manipulating the Brits as well, and offering them technologies, but two different paths. One was social control, also there is stuff with the Brits. The other was high tech weapons, systems inter-dimensional, with the Germans. So whoever these players are, you can dial into it, but it is very dangerous. They are manipulating the German arm vs the British arm. And then they've got the Chinese arm, that is almost seen as though they are a robot army. And so when you study it, the globalists go to these events and they take bigger and bigger doses of drugs, they do electroshock. If you go back to the owners Time life books didnt work just in the 20s and 30s in LSD and other hallucinogens, and apothecaries, they were doing electroshock, they would have people turn their heart off to try and communicate with these things, to try to be dominant and get that. So you go back thousands of years, Merlin the archetype, or these magicians, or these wizards, are taking drugs in these temples and interfacing with these palantirs, these crystal balls, which aren't really crystal balls it is their psychic focus of an inter-dimensional connection while they are on drugs looking in the glass to then be able to see the future and understand what is happening to give them temporal power over this planet. But like the Bible tells you, any pharmacy (?) or any of that always leads to d

Lads, what is the best product to use when sticking pictures and posters to walls? Something that ideally won't leave marks. I'm just thinking of finally doing a bit of light decorating in my tiny rented flat where a blank magnolia wall is a bit of an eyesore. The contract has that "any marks on the walls and we'll charge you for repainting" clause but I suspect these guys might actually enforce that.

I used to use white-tack but back when I was still a student I noticed it left marks. There's a range of competing alternatives but I noticed some variation in the reviews overall.

Is there such a thing as a website or app that generates dish ideas based on ingredients that you enter?

Which is to say, you can tell it what you currently have in your kitchen and it'll pop out with a recommendation (and let you know what ingredients of yours will work as a facsimile, or cross out those that are non essential, etc.).

I've tried Supercook, but there's no 'fuzziness' there. Only strictly the ingredients you have.

You're exactly right. I know I shouldn't care. I know that I have no reason to care. I successfully don't give a fuck about much of my life and the way I am, I'm old enough to have gotten over everything that's ever bothered me about myself - except this. It's not ruining my life or anything, I'm just annoyed that I do still definitely care that someone might see my knob and think it's small. I realise how ridiculous that is and yet it still pervades.

My best guess is that it has something to do with me being fat as a teenager, I used to hide my body at all costs, so perhaps this is just a small part (hurhur) of that complex that I've clung onto.

Them old man saunas are great, though.

I believe they call it 'blood dick' on the continent, a cock that undergoes a good deal of inflation when aroused or even in warm weather. Measure yourself and then compare it to the national average and you'll notice most men are like this.

>But I can never go skinny dipping or to a nude beach or one of them old man saunas without feeling a little inadequate.

Listen, lad. When your get your kit off with a lass for the first time do you really think her chief concern is the size of your cock or really, anything at all going on with your body? Same principle will apply in other naked situations. All else fails "I've got a few stone to swing it in with"/"I may be hung like a tic-tac bitten in half but I can eat pussy" will do as a confident retort to your mates banter.

>Perhaps a lot of these lads are half fluffed because they think similar things to me

Bottom-right quite clearly has something going on. I imagine being in a room naked with a lass studying your cock will lead to some confusion downstairs.

Evening, chaps...
I'm running a piece of equipment from a win98SE box in a VM (trying to run it under win7 tells me to fuck off and ask the manufacturer for some new software. Hah...)
It all mostly works, but there are some buttons that would be really useful if they worked - and they don't.
In the pic, there should be some buttons with arrows, rendered where I've skilfully drawn yellow triangles. Clearly, other buttons exist and work fine.
Anyone care to guess what I need to drag in from the machine that this stuff is installed on (and works, but is spectacularly inconvenient to use).
I just copied the installed directory across, no install discs or anything crazy like that.
Also, FML.

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that that's not Qt. Also, it's Qt, not QT.

My money's on one of the DLLs that go with it. COMCTL and COMDLG come to mind.

OP, give this a whirl and see what it flags up.

Might be worth a try running wine on a linux VM, or even Dosbox.

I only really watch Wheeler Dealers on the late night channels, so hadn't realised in latest versions he had left the show. And beef with the shouty fat man?

He and James May probably need to do something together.

I pretty much haven't touched my guitar in over ten years. I decided to try and get back into playing it again, but give it a bit of attention first, strip it down and clean and check everythings set right.

The neck was never quite right since I bought it, the fretboard was about half a mm higher at the 24th fret than where it met the body. I decided to take it off and refit it, I think the body hasn't been machined quite level, or probably just a chip of wood stuck in there.

Soooo... I unscrewed it, and well, the one screw just came straight out with no resistance at all. Pic related.
There's about quarter to half an inch of the screw left in the body, so I can't get the neck off. Bugger.

Anyone got any suggestions?
There's a few routes I can think of. I've got some crappy screw extractors, but with just a hand drill I think it'll be impossible to get it to bite into the broken surface of the screw. I could just drill it out, but I'd probably do a really good job of fucking the whole thing up completely.

I'm thinking of going out and buying a pillar drill instead, it'll be useful in future anyway. Anyone with a bit of experience in this matter able to give me some pointers about what's the best drill I can get for £100-300? Axminster seems to have some decent stuff.I'm expecting the cheap clarke and silverline type stuff at places like machinemart and toolstation to be crap. And a brand fartool crops up on ebay a lot which is still probably shite but maybe better value.

>Anyone got any suggestions?

It's not as big a worry as you might think. If you balls it up, you can just drill out a bigger hole and plug it with a dowel - that'd be the proper fix if the wood had stripped and the screw was no longer holding.

If you're going to have a go with the screw extractor, I'd suggest using a punch to make a small indent in the centre of the remaining screw, then a drill bit to make a small concave divot. This will give the extractor more surface to grip and stop it from wandering. Securely clamping the guitar body down will make the job far easier. If you're worried about slipping and damaging the guitar finish, you can make a protector by drilling an oversized hole in a piece of hardboard and holding it in place with masking tape.

>Anyone with a bit of experience in this matter able to give me some pointers about what's the best drill I can get for £100-300?

Axminster are usually a safe bet. Within that budget, I'd be inclined to get a second-hand machine. Good single-phase machines usually get snapped up quickly, but you can get a real bargain if you're willing to overlook a bit of surface rust.

Was the intonation and action alright to begin with?

You probably didn't actually need to go fucking around with it. Fretboards are designed to have a certain amount of tension/relief in order to account for the scale length, bridge height, all those sorts of things. It's not uncommon to have a slight gap at the neck joint.

Could be wrong but just my two penneth, whenever I've tried to "fix" something like that on one of my guitars I've usually just made it worse.

The clearance issue caused the strings to rattle against the last fret, even though it came out of the factory with the last fret filed very low, and even after I backed the truss rod off more than I should need to.
When I bought it I didn't know enough to take it back to the shop, and by the time I learnt enough it was too late.
It's not a valuable enough guitar to worry about, they're less than £200 new, so I'm happy to fuck around with this.
It's been sat in a bag in a damp house for so long that the pickups have actually gone rusty.

I think OP was probably moving in the right direction before the screw snapped. Most bolt-on guitars will end up with a shim in the neck pocket at some point to adjust the neck angle. Buzz only on the high frets even with the truss rod slack is a dead giveaway that the neck angle is wrong. Before CNC and micro-tilt adjusters came in, most Fender guitars were shimmed from the factory to fine-tune the neck angle; Taylor shim every guitar they build as a routine part of their neck angle setup.

/beat/11618 Just want more of this
It's a garden variety progressive/deep house yet I rather like these tracks and the mildly melancholic route the melody takes.
Many of them come from Enhanced Music label or Colorize. Not all; there's still a noticeable amount of upbeat 'summer' tracks (I've scouted a few filesharing services for compilations already).

Can you lads help me find more?

I love this post. Brought back memories of a particularly shitty stint working in an Amazon warehouse. Ours fostered quite a toxic environment, and I spent most of my time moving around junk I can't imagine anyone seriously wants to buy. I don't blame you for a second for knocking back a few to get through your shift, but I really hope you're in a better position now.
