Congratulations to you and the lady.
At least cats look after themselves. You have to wait 13+ years for that with kids.  Bad Teeth

I've got another one due in Feb,
I was sold that they start look after each other.

eventually

My two nephews are getting there, but still too young to really cut the workload I think.

My girlfriends mum keeps going 'tick tock tick tock' when she sees me, which is apparemtly the sound of my girlfriends biological clock ticking. She can fuck right off, Im not even ready for a cat.

I now have a cat and a baby..... Laugh

Goodbye old life...

Is this a recent addition to the household (baby, not the cat)?

Yeah that is probably my best bet. Only met a small handful of people so far, none of them dj but i guess the time will eventually come

Idle Hands is having a meeting of music makers on Thursday from 4pm. Maybe head down to there, see if you can meet a few people?

That's the thing though. It isn't. I agree it's utterly impossible to enforce any of this or exempt yourself from the laws and taxes but it is true statutory law is a law of contracts. And contract law is only enforceable against legal entities not against the person.

Got anything to back up your statements?

I don't think the term 'contracts' is applicable to statutory law, but I'm no lawyer. As a subject of the land you don't enter into a contract as one would in a business agreement, which is where parties enter into a contracts. As a resident of any country you are subject to the laws as laid down. In an agreement, subject to contract, you are the legal entity if you are a sole person agreeing to the terms of the contract.

According to that, Scotland spends £1623 more per person on public spending than England. Spends £219 more than the average spend across the other 12 parts of the UK on health. Spends £21 more than the average spend acorss the other 12 parts of the UK on education.

I can't be bothered to do any more sums. But according to the graphs, they pay less tax and spend more it seems.

in the art of war, sun tzu says that if your enemy does any kind of aggressive action, it's a sure sign that they're insecure

Sounds like one of my colleagues whose response to an argument this morning was to call me a neanderthal. He was saying that the police used to be aggressive and not accountable to anyone, which I then said so were Unions (which he is a prominent member of), but he had no answer to that other than to abuse me.

No wins, as it should have. The world shouldn't be trying to devolve into smaller communities IMO.

Plus all they would have got is David Cameron with a Scottish accent, no change for them, just a smug bastard who could claim to be King of Scotland.

My mother, who was born in Scotland, but had no right to vote in the matter, thought it was a bloody stupid idea to secede.

It went straight to my spam folder without a second thought, but then I don't work for the NHS or wherever this is referring to. I'm guessing it's some scam phone number they're trying to get you to call.

It is almost identical, so it must be some sort of phishing/scam.

Termination #17771349648

Morning,

We regret to inform you that your employment with Semmco Ltd is being terminated. Your termination is the result of the following violations of company policy:
- AVK 89 26.01.2010
- AVK 76 26.01.2010
- AVK 98 26.01.2010

You were issued written warnings on 25.08.2014. As stated in your final warning, you needed to take steps to correct your behavior by 15.09.2014. Your failure to do so has resulted in your termination. To appeal this termination, you must return written notification of your intention to appeal to Soraya Schroepfer in Semmco Ltd no later than 05:00PM on 17.09.2014.

Sincerely,
Rosalyn Elmer
+07427 01 53 08

It doesn't look like a phishing email, it looks fairly genuine, except the fact it is a touch informal to dismiss someone so casually by email. The company exists in the UK too. Very odd.


I'm guessing that your friend actually works for said employer? I mean, cos if he's not then surely he wouldn't be worried!

Other than that, I'm sure employers are required to put in writing these sorts of things?

Keep us posted, if he does work at Semmco, but this is a spam bot, must be quite a complex one, and to target people claiming to be a firing email.... What kind of overtones does that display? A big terrorist plot to make people not turn up for work one day, and get sacked, thus crippling the UK's economy!!!!!?HuhHuhHuhHuh? *tinfoilhat*

No, we work for the government.

A new study suggests that the contamination of drinking water by shale gas is due to faulty wells and not hydraulic fracturing.

Researchers in the US analysed the gas content in 130 water wells in Pennsylvania and Texas.

They were able to trace the methane found in the water to problems with the casing or lining of wells drilled to extract the gas.

See if Beavis is still doing this kind of thing. Technics are his game, but he is worth asking.

Edit: last Hijack posts about that link lead to no response, so it might be a dead end.

There is a guy in PMT (Sound Control) who does repairs that might be worth speaking too as well.

Rane are a good company and write respected articles on various matters, but the absence of an internal fuse is an oddity. I presume they have good reason for it, but I can't think of how one would affect audio quality in anyway, if the PSU was built well.

As I mentioned it:

Lots of tech notes etc.

They are usually easily accessible if they have one via a small cover.
134  General / The Forum / Re: Anyone on here good with fixing music gear? on: September 15, 2014, 16:40:32
I expect you have done this, but have you checked the plug fuse and the internal one, as well as making sure the power cable is well socketed? I know these are simple things, but just checking you've consider them.

I've been mixing music for 15 years now and there is still room for improvement, but most people have been happy with the work I have done for them.

I don't really do recording much these days, because it can be quite labour intensive, but give me a shout on the mixing if you want; on here or FB.

This is my last EP, all mixed by me - https://soundcloud.com/slimetime/sets/vausz-maru-so-ep-slm098 not mastered by me though.

I can do mastering, but it is a real art to get a high quality master that can compete on the same levels as the pros.

It seems Serato's Scratch is the more popular product. I'd go for the mixer you are happy with, but if you can get a mixer that works neatly with Traktor, that will be better for you I'm sure. I don't know what Traktor requires to run though, does it not come with an interface/protection?

Quote
A future pig, adopted by a loving family, can communicate through brain-wave actuation via a gadget called b-prompter. Her education of a petís place in human society brings her from self-awareness to cannibalism of pig eating pork. Her masterís experience of overseas female enslavement opens her mind to the existence of cruelty and unfairness among humans. Her aspiration to follow her Mistressí career as an architect is discouraged by virtue of her being a pig. After a wonderful mating with one of her age, motherhood accentuates her alienation, being one of a kind among humans. She has a vision of traveling with the family girl to Animal Kingdom, a realm well before human world dominance. Meeting a dog and a cat, the two girls are shown how the law of the jungle works. They travel on to Pig-land, where her parents and kid sister live. Here the role of human and pig is reversed, but the human herd in the jungle is better tolerated, as her companion becomes a pet in turn. Back into reality, her motherhood is truncated by her two babies taken away for adoption while she is asleep. She becomes a donut, empty at the core. Her search for answer and pain-sharing leads her through several abductee mother societies, Society Against Cruelty to Animals, a biologist, and finally a professor who explains why cruelty to animals can be justified on meat taste. She is drawn to become a martyr by blowing up the slaughterhouse and to bring critical attention to senseless human cruelty on animals, simulating Guy Fawkes attempting to blow up Parliament in London. She has a discourse with God on compassion, tolerance, and patience, after which she finds forgiveness.
