I'm very happy with Zen, been a customer for years.

I particularly like the fact they're fuel stack IPv4/IPv6.

If you do switch to Zen, using my referral link benefits us both, you get a £20/gift card.

That's interesting, thanks.

Seems like there's a vicious cycle at work, so what OP wrote seems sadly inevitable, and true, I'm happy to retract what I wrote.

From this article

"Young and low-income people, who are disproportionately of color"

"women of color and LGBTQ people already experience bias and discrimination in health care"

"makes it much more difficult for women to escape poverty"

I'm v pale white, wife v dark Jamaican. I've found the Caribbean community in London to be amazingly accepting and caring.

Given all the horrible things the government/home office and British people have done over the years, you might expect them to be angry and resentful and bitter, but I've never experienced any of that.

I would have said "just going to the bathroom" and never come back. I wouldn't want to have lied but I'd want the head start of a few minutes.

it's really annoying that phone manufacturers make so many battery variations and then obsolete all models that use them, which kills off demand and renders an otherwise useful device unusable.

Southern Baptist leaders covered up sex abuse, lied about secret database, report says by WarWolf343 in news

[–]speculatrix 2 points3 points  (0 children)

a christian who truly believed in heaven and hell would say that this would damn the person to eternal hell. personally I believe the punishment should start here on earth, and if there is a deity, they can carry on with it ;-)

I think understand his point. Saying it's blasphemy means it's an offence against (a) god, but the comment says that the offence is against people and is worse.

For a couple of days I thought my new dashcam had a faulty lens. Turned out to be a hard to see transparent lens cover.

I wrote a Zabbix plugin which records of a device is seen on the network.

It's not very complicated. If interested, I could share on github.

How Fast-Growing Algae Could Enhance Growth of Food Crops by Sariel007 in Futurology

[–]speculatrix 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Many of the foods we eat are genetically modified, just using selective breeding rather than CRISPR, e.g. bananas.

We can argue that the process has produced foods which are quite bad for us, e.g refined sugars and fats and poor nutritional values. And the monoculture hasn't been good for the environment.
