    I'd imagine this might be the one act that drives Trump totally over the edge.

            The one in your link is 20l which is similar to the one I linked. If you drop down to a ten litre they seem to be slightly more reasonable so say something like this:

            The ones with smaller tanks again are cheaper, might be ok just for stopping mould developing in a room but probably not much good for drying clothes in winter
            No mould just alot of condensation on window every morning. My mother used sleep in that room and nothing so I'm Putting it down to breathing maybe.

                    That’s very different to “gender” though.
                    Coloured was literally used as collective for people who were non-white.

                    Being “white” isn’t about a bit more than the general colour of skin. Certainly don’t think an Asians would feel included with white in its modern meaning.

                    At some point post war, a group met to discuss a preferred description. Asian was the chosen over other options. One of the other terms in consideration was “yellow” (which I found surprising). Filipinos present voted against it as they considered themselves brown.

                      Would be good if it becomes a Twitter policy to ban people like this.

                      I just heard that the guard that Gemma O’Doherty and her followers abused over social media for most of a year killed himself.

                          I expect that's going to be at its worst currently as the cold weather will exacerbate the condensation. We have similar every morning in our sitting room which has a bunch of windows just from the difference in temperature inside and out. We wheel the duhumid in there many mornings and it clears it up alright. Just opening the windows regularly would do the same thing but not very pleasant at the moment!

                            I do remember that Bowie stuff and how aspirational and magical it sounded, and I'm trying to be less cynical about popular things in general at the moment so I must actually try and figure it out. Thanks

                                      At what point we we call it and say that the democratisation of media has been a bad thing? Ah for the days when the conspiracy nut had one or two conspiracies he somehow came across and had nobody to talk to about them who would listen. Now they can gather and storm Capitol Hill.

                                            I was thinking about this exact thing when I saw Trump removed from Twitter.

                                            At what point does rhetoric cross that threshold where it becomes inflammatory enough to justify censorship.

                                            Does his account get banned in the event that the Capitol Building doesn't get stormed but his tweets are exactly the same or is the ban simply reactive to the actions of others.

                                            A difficult issue to navigate

                                                As we know, it's the children who are wrong. I'm finding that worst case scenario I'm getting many, many 15 second snippets of absolute bangers even if the video they're accompanying is stupid.

                                                    Ah, social media strikes again. Either way Ireland would be a significantly better place if she was removed from social media.

                                                      I suppose it's plausible that there would be sell orders at a number like 50k?

                                                        TikTok is genuinely class. For those brief moments in the day when you just want to switch off. I just block anything that seems even slightly political or serious. Mostly Irish cunts that want to bring their complaining to a new platform. But 99% of stuff there is mindless upbeat fun.

                                                            Not having a go at you Richie, but it's the misinformation \ disinformation, like your post, that is the real danger, not the platforms themselves.

                                                            Topical, as that Irish CNN reporter, Donie O’Sullivan was going on about it during the week and the young scientist winner was detecting 'deepfakes'.

                                                            Amazing how easily bad information can spread and mutate like a virus. Most of the mutations happen in peoples heads not on Twitter or Facebook.

They must see the benefit of having people not leave offices at 5/6 local time to commute an hour and instead use at least a proportion of that time to communicate with those in the US.

                                                                                      Topical, as that Irish CNN reporter, Donie O’Sullivan was going on about it during the week and the young scientist winner was detecting 'deepfakes'.

                                                                                      I tried to explain that spreading misinformation of any kind is bad and he said if its proven that the Gard didn't kill himself he will take it down. Tried to explain that the damage is already done, even if he deleted it and he couldn't see it.

                                                                                      As you say, it's all in the head.

                                                                                                20k was a very natural ceiling because it was a round number, and also the previous ATH - so you had a tonne of people patiently waiting since 2017 who could finally get out at a profit/even. (I think there was a few from here).

                                                                                                There is no other level that will have the same effect - anyone who has ever bought BTC is hugely in profit so it's hard to think of a figure a sell wall would be constructed at. There isn't much difference in selling at 45k or 48 than 50k.

                                                                                                  Basically since last Tue week have had an elevated temp between 100 and 102degs pretty much 24/7 unless suppressing with paracetamol and ibuprofen.

                                                                                                  Got worse after about 6 days with cough, pain on inhalation and higher temp.
                                                                                                  It finally broke on Fri am sometime when I woke up completely soaked in sweat. So fever free now since then so another day or so I can venture out and see how the lungs hold up to a walk.

                                                                                                  Worst part about it is the rinse and repeat nature of it.
                                                                                                  It's not like a normal illness where you feel bad get worse get better.

                                                                                                      I’m interested how US firms based here approach it. They must see the benefit of having people not leave offices at 5/6 local time to commute an hour and instead use at least a proportion of that time to communicate with those in the US.
                                                                                                      From that perspective, I could pretty much decide to WFH as much as I wanted pre-pandemic anyway. Although I'm probably not the best example as all my team are based in other locations.

                                                                                                      I think generally it depends on your function. Tech people get far more leeway than business.

                                                                                                          Am working solely on a new product launch, lots of time spent studying, learning all about it.

                                                                                                          Being able to take a break and mess about with the kids is amazing. Also just nipping out for a run on the lunchbreak.

                                                                                                          Employer giving me all the time and space I need really helps.

                                                                                                            power consumption isn't much more than when the PC is running as normal. I only turn off the mining when i'm gaming. Profitability so far is about £4-5 per day (after electricity is taken into account). i know i can get better rates if i lower the voltage on the GPU but haven't done that yet. I've got a good 60Mh/s currently. just learning and tweaking as i go along tbh.

                                                                                                            I only give access to my GPU as rates for CPU are so much lower and puts the CPU at 80% load so really not worth it.
