    Nah. It's brutalistic. The guy resigned. Shame him and send him on his way. There's no chance his future behaviour is affected by whether or not he goes to prison, so it has no rehabilitation purpose.

    Ended up using these lads, cheers SP

    Far cheaper than most availability in Dublin yet still 3x the price of anywhere on mainland Europe. Gouge the tourists for all they're worth.

    iPhone use their lighting connection to charge rather then universal connection. And confusingly, you can get a usb-c to lightening cable - the usb going into the wall/transformer end.

    You might be aware of all of that. Just checking in case you just grabbed a usb-c cable. And of the cheap iPhone cables I’ve had worked without issue - initially at least.
    A friend gave me one of his chargers and I'm sorted thanks. Was just a dud charger.

    Thats a decent present for someone! I'd say the ram could probably profitably be updated to 8gb minimum, but should be fine apart from that.

    Sorry just saw this now. Hellmuth chinned. It was live streamed on poker go. They hadn't planned on doing it but made a last minute decision when Phil final tabled. They couldn't show hole cards so you didn't miss much really. Couple of minor rants was all.

    Yes. Definitely not taboo. In fact a lot of people seem quite willing to share and discuss the pain around the circumstances. I remember reading an academic article by a colleague and friend who I had lost touch with and she described having a miscarriage at a conference and her devastated feelings around it. Deeply moving, and great that it is indeed no longer taboo. - but also it is definitely a highly sensitive topic.

    I think TABOO is entirely the wrong word to use in this case. I think ‘sensitive’ should be the word. It is sensitive information.

    It definitely is taboo. It's tabooness to so ingrained and accepted that people don't even realise.

    As an example, I'm sure you are aware that people don't tell friends that are pregnant until first scan/3 months/12 weeks. Ask yourself why.

    Got report on my back injury and panicked a bit and sold my lovely coins in case of expenses etc. Instant increase in price.

    Lost out on a nice €1900 profit so far.

    Reverse barometer but at least made a small profit.
