    Its just for spoofers. Got an email from the college recently encouraging us to make one and upload our "badges". Felt like being back in junior infants getting a star on your correct spelling homework. Needless to say I wont be making an account.

        Instead of adopting a cynical approach, I think it's best to look at all the tools available to you and ask yourself how they can serve you. If nothing, dont use them However dont rule things out from a perception you have on them . I dont really look at the tool myself much at all but I can see how you can expand a network for yourself that might suit you

          Generally because most house have existing power outlets and people leave well enough alone. Same way that people haven't replaced light switches with smart switches.
          It's been about a while, the standard USB is nearly obsolete now. If you are upgrading outlets make sure it's USB C or has an option to replace the module in future.

          There's a transformer built into usb outlet same as a plug that dictates the speed. Old cheap usb outlets would have been a trickle. High powered USB-C would be equal to new hi-speed phone chargers like the 20W apple charger. But that's increasing too, looked a 100w charger for workstations last week.

              I haven't seen Kin, but from what you've described could it be the 'bog standard house' ?

                  Person in a zoom meeting there raises his hand and his hand emoji looked weird. Took me a while to work out that he had just chosen a different skin tone in order to better match his actual skin tone. Not sure why that surprised me, but there we go. Must be strange wandering around in a world where the default skin tone on everything is a different tone to your own skin tone.

                        €55m for an error at birth that didn't go to trial. You can hate that these poor people have had to go through this situation, which they would gladly swap €55m to not have, and also recognise that there is no sustainable public health model that allows for standard errors to be compensated at €55m a pop. Mistakes, unfortunately, happen in high-pressure health care settings. Other countries don't bankrupt their health system to fix them. I would say most countries in the EU in fact say - this is desperately sad, but unfortunately this happens sometimes and we'll now take care of you, but we're not paying compensatiton - and they are able to give better healthcare outcomes to everyone as a result.

                        We, on the other hand, spent over €300m on healthcare lawsuits last year, and its easily heading towards a billion a year at the rate it is growing. Its a new trend and its a dangerous trend.

                          So to protect their/our investment and to keep insurance down. They should implement best practices to ensure these things dont happen . Standard errors that are catastrophic to someone's life should NEVER happen and never be labelled 'Standard' .

                              Was the person white? Cos the default skin tone for the hands on zoom is yellow, I change it myself sometimes to white hand, thumbs up whatever. Just to mix it up. But I dont think it's strange that I have to do it. I just assumed yellow was a nice neutral colour for a default setting, like the ones on our phones.

                                I’m not sure if this is correct for Ireland, but I read in the “Fake Law” book by the secret barrister that they can only award compensation once, so whilst a baby born with traumatic injuries could live for a month after trial or 70 years the court have to allow for the latter even though I in the former that would a windfall (excuse the harsh language). A better system would allow for say €300k/year for life.

                                  I'd always assumed, perhaps wrongly, that the €XXM is put in a fund and each year the parents/guardians apply to draw down from it (this year we'll need 3 x €60K permanent nursing staff, €100K of teaching and physio, €50K for home redevelopments, €50K for a specialist holiday etc) and someone OK's the spend and keeps receipts etc.
                                  And if the time comes when the fund is no longer needed (early death or less likely a miracle recovery) then the fund stops.
                                  It would seem the logical way to do it.

                                    Given it's a settlement, I imagine there would be nothing stopping an offer like that being tabled.
                                    Of course, also nothing stopping a claimant countering that they want the yearly allowance paid out for 70 years regardless, with any post life payments representing compensation.

                                    The situation you describe only covers expenses, there also need to be compensation for loss of quality of life and loss of life. It it would appear that there's an inverse link between how much someones life is shortened by, and for how long they require aid.

                                            I read a report on perinatal death in Europe and it seemed to have Ireland as one of the safest countries in the EU to give birth in terms of death rates. The issue is that the process of birth is 'messy'. Thankfully though a lot less traumatic than it used to be. But there are so many moving parts that its easy enough for a lawyer to come in afterwards and say 'oh this was the reason - give us all this cash', while its just a horrific thankfully-very-rare effect of the birth process.

                                            We can't have a viable healthcare system if we go on like this. Its not usual when we compare us to other countries, and its not usual even in Ireland. Its a new development. No public healthcare system can survive repeated €55m death blows - and these court cases are exploding in terms of value and frequency.

                                            For example, we'll probably have no new cancer screening programmes, as they now know that probabilistic errors will result in lawsuits, and every screening programme will cost a few billion, when it should cost a few tens of millions. This is actual deaths that will be caused by this, its very real. We have to accept that normal rare accidents and deaths in a hospital are unfortunate side effects of all hospital settings everywhere in the world.

                                              And it'll be the poorest who suffer most. The high middle classes will continue to get executive health screenings as part of their private healthcare, they'll be fine. Those who can't afford private insurance will be left without screening options because of this. They'll eventually be giving birth in a room with a lawyer rather than a nurse. No nurse to show you how to feed the baby, or take the baby for a few hours, while you are recuperating, as all the money was spent on that lawyer.

                                              You'll literally have two different death rates over time - those with private healthcare and those without if these lawsuits continue. You already see it in the US, which is similarly litigious (although not even then as litigious as Ireland), where poor people actually have falling life expectancy as public healthcare has become drained of practical resources.

                                                  What your talking about is a functional service where those items are provided in a timely manner under state schemes without needing to go out to the private market and thus the service stops when the patient doesn’t need them.

The high middle classes will continue to get executive health screenings as part of their private healthcare, they'll be fine. Those who can't afford private insurance will be left without screening options because of this. They'll eventually be giving birth in a room with a lawyer rather than an extra midwife.

                                                      You'll literally have two different death rates over time - those with private healthcare and those without if these lawsuits continue. You already see it in the US, which is similarly litigious (although not even then as litigious as Ireland), where poor people actually have falling life expectancy as public healthcare has become drained of practical resources.
                                                      Well that and the fact that the best clinicians move into the more lucrative and massively less stressful purely private jobs leaving it harder to fill public jobs so you get stretched services left behind with a brain drain of specialists.

                                                      I know my misses is considering doing in as paediatric OT as she is getting lots of parents asking her if she will do it and the service she is in is an absolute shit show.

Cos the default skin tone for the hands on zoom is yellow, I change it myself sometimes to white hand, thumbs up whatever. Just to mix it up. But I dont think it's strange that I have to do it. I just assumed yellow was a nice neutral colour for a default setting, like the ones on our phones.
                                                          A lot of it is extremely cringy but it does have its good points. It's easy to build up a good network and as a result recruiters, both internal and external can hit you up very often. I have no urgent desire to leave my current workplace but if i did it'd probably prove useful.

                                                                                        haven’t been declaring some work share stuff because the disposals were mainly coming in under 1200 threshold - in 2019 made a nice gain and got so bamboozled trying to figure out the form that I just bunged the money due over to their account without bothering to submit form
                                                                                        pretty sure I’ll owe something on one of the schemes for usc or something- what are fines like for this kind of thing?
                                                                                        do they respond well to tirades about how they should be going after the big fish?

                                                                                            He was an OTT angry homophobe who secretly spied on Spacey working out and thought Spacey was doing it for his benefit. So made a move on him . (one aspect of the movie).
                                                                                            Sat through it after the hype and thought , all that to make the ol gay comeback that every gay protestor must secretly be gay themselves. Yada yada. Seems ironic now looking at it that Spacey was a sex pest himself, so maybe he was working out for your mans benefit .
                                                                                            Aclaimed movie. Left me cold.

Then step out of the airport (masks required) and look at everyone in taxis, busses, restaurants, supermarkets, look at you like you are a freak because you forgot to take the mask off. Masks are completely and utterly done and look odd.

Have a look at that Somebody Feed Phil episode in Copenhagen. The snorrenbrod is the thing we keep coming back to as a memory of the place. Who would have thought that prawns and eggs on rye bread would make such a fantastic combination.

So, maybe that's a general thing - that they've got rid of the horrific tendency of museums to stick up a load of pics of dead fat rich guys on walls and pretend that's of interest to anyone.

So, maybe that's a general thing - that they've got rid of the horrific tendency of museums to stick up a load of pics of dead fat rich guys on walls and pretend that's of interest to anyone.

I like the look of the architecture museum.
