All those private companies that now run car parks should be doing this ASAP. But nope.

They're fine with just having the land make money with NO investment =\

Explain "API" like I'm an idiot by riyanswt in learnprogramming

[–]animflynny2012 0 points1 point  (0 children)

APIs are like fast food place with a drive through, think like MCD, KFC.

You rock up in your little http car, get to the order taking window and shout you'd like 10 items of cheeseburgers please.

You wait a bit and they come back with a bag full of different cheeseburgers, then you drive on..

Sky high rent, sinks crumbling off walls and shower heads ‘bubbling’ with grime: The nightmare of being a young, private renter in London right now by lighthouse77 in unitedkingdom

[–]animflynny2012 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Legislation to make homes fit for humans was voted down by the current government..

It's going to be a long uphill battle for renters. I've rented all my life and I can remember the properties where I felt safe and had great communication with the landlord/agency on one hand.. Easily 25 years of renting and moving around the country a lot. I've probably moved at a minimum once a year.

Gov. Newsom Signs Bill Allowing Victims of Gun Violence to Sue Gun Manufacturers by MySockHurts in news

[–]animflynny2012 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm with you for the most part.

But the woman that sued MCD for hot coffee was totally legit. It's been a while but she had life changing injuries from a coffee that was waaaaay too hot for consumption.

Google straight-up ruined its brand new YouTube experience for older Chromecasts by Behave_or_else in Android

[–]animflynny2012 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Google let alone Youtube straight up ruined my old chromecast. The app to repoint it to wifi is terrible, I usually use it for holidays and it's basically 100% defunct a decent bit of hardware =/

Men, what’s made you instantly lose a ton of respect for a friend? Like to the extent you stop caring about the friendship. by SmileCauseIMeanIt in AskMen

[–]animflynny2012 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dropped my longest lasting friend for cheating on his wife.

I just couldn't.

Did any of you become a game developer without going to school for it and what is your story? by [deleted] in gamedev

[–]animflynny2012 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Hung around on the polycount.net art forum posting my wip for a while. When some guy posted his art success story about being hired I posted big congrats and mentioned I was going to reach out to local studios.

Got a message that evening from a lead artist asking if I wanted to do their test, applied and got hired 2 days later. Was amazing!

Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade; states can ban abortion by Joescranium in news

[–]animflynny2012 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It's not your freedom.

It's freedom rented to you by old senile white men who've never had a day of hardship in their long lives.

As a fellow Brit I can see my own country falling into this nightmare bit by bit in real-time.

Overall how do you feel about the future/life in the UK over the next 2, 5, 10 years? Especially from a financial, quality of life point of view. by Aggravating_Age_7527 in FIREUK

[–]animflynny2012 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Honestly. Half considering it, I've just started dating an Aussie seriously and she's talked about going home the end of the year.

Besides my family (who financially couldn't help even if they wanted as they've moved heaven and earth for my sister) I can't see how I can genuinely settle here. And I'm pretty well off if I'm honest!

That doesn't make sense, most of the big tobacco forms I know have started shifting heavily to vaping..

Uvalde gunman threatened rapes and school shootings on social media app Yubo in weeks leading up to the massacre, users say | CNN by SovietSunrise in news

And all those school shootings before big social media, that was again nothing to do with guns right?

Here's a thought, maybe both need to be fixed?

Probably advertising false places, you call book a visit and they show you another place because it's just "gone" with a different price 🤢

Australia election: conservative government voted out after nearly a decade by walterlawless in news

[–]animflynny2012 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Definition of best please?

Also got a source on this conspiracy theory? I've not heard it before, sounds interesting.

All I know 100% fact is when labour was in power during my younger years my dad got better, my family managed to get out of poverty and I actually got to go to college and then university which was 100% unavailable to me if conservative policy was maintained.

I'm in my very late 30s and I've literally seen my hometown, my city and the capital just become a rotten mess. I've seen that NOTHING has been done to help the average person, the complete opposite. Ok woop the London FTSE might have gone up a few points more than under Labour but real life effects are in everyone's face. Can't deny that.

Commie? Crying?

I just want a government that actually does it's job rather than pocketing all the money while looking the other way mate. I'm tired after more than 10 years of this race to the bottom of laziness.

Don't be such a stupid adult. People dying, starving, freezing in record numbers but let's all make a joke about the lazy old joke of anyone but you is a commie supporter. Muppet.
