A simple swap of Martin for McGrath would probably do them wonders.
    Not as leader of FG, as Taoiseach. And he has already agreed to resign as Taoiseach as part of the PfG.
    You are technically correct...the best kind of correct

      I was just replying to AJ, I've said what I've been told the announcement is about. Easing restrictions. Likes of hairdressers and stuff allowed to open.

        Re:Virtualisation - I don't own a single Windows device, but obviously need windows to run things. So I can create Virtual Machines on the server and remote desktop into that. Easy enough to backup etc. Means I don't need to have a really fancy laptop to be able to do work on (as just 'jump' to the VM). My missus also needs a powerful machine for photo editing, so I passthrough the physical GPU on the server to a different Windows VM. Means that my single machine can run 2 (really could do many more) Windows 'Computers', which I can remote onto via my Chromebook and she can remote onto via a Raspberry Pi and work on with a screen.

        Docker is stupidly good, basically reduces all of the hassle of VMs to create 'Virtualised Applications", easy to provision extra disk space / additional cpu / handle port clashes etc per-application. I don't think I use 60% of the capabilities of it. Simple example to consider why you'd use Docker. What if your machine with all of the apps you need gets a virus? Or the machine no longer runs a certain game so you upgrade it. Every time you've to re-install all of the apps / config etc. Docker is just a cheat-sheet for that. And with the Community Applications through Unraid's UI, you don't even need to understand it, you just take other people's DockerFile and run it locally to set up a carbon copy of their setup.
        I've just got UNRAID up and running after having a ton of hassle with the memory stick I used for my old FreeNas install think I'll just go buy a new one for peace of mind. I'm just a little confused with Dockers & Plugins, I got the Community Applications installed so if I install something from that it puts it into a Docker file? Am I getting that correct or totally off base?

            Though don't really use Windows much anymore tbh.
            Just had a quick look on that site, cliffs? Think one of the things that stopped me from setting up a Windows based media server was the cost of the licence key.

            Was in the Phoenix Park this morning at 6am running, pretty cool to see the deer rambling around at that time of the day.

                    How did he think he was going to get away with it - The dog treats is my favourite bit!


                    The former owner of a Rhode Island trucking company is facing charges of wire and mail fraud after prosecutors allege he orchestrated an elaborate scheme to defraud Amazon out of more than $640,000.

                    Michael Chaves, 40, of East Providence, Rhode Island, and former owner of auto transport company CAT Transportation Inc., was already awaiting sentencing in another federal case when he was arrested on Wednesday, June 17. He is currently being held in federal custody.

                    Court documents allege that since March 2017, Chaves opened approximately 30 Amazon customer accounts using various names and email addresses. Over a three-year period, prosecutors claim he placed nearly 10,800 orders totaling around $714,000, but kept the items and instead returned similar or used items or those around the same weight for a refund of more than $640,000.

                    Court filings claim that most of the items Chaves purchased and returned were auto and commercial motor vehicle parts to operate his auto transportation company.

                    In some cases, he would replace original items with those of similar weight, including a commercial truck tire. Instead of returning the tire, he sent back two pieces of wood in the Amazon box. Other examples include ordering a vehicle suspension ball joint and returning an oil filter wrench and a stabilizer bar link kit with dog treats, according to court documents.

                    Chaves also ordered new parts, like ceramic brake pads and a fuel injector, and returned the heavily used parts instead, according to court documents.

                    The former trucking company owner previously pleaded guilty to falsifying federal U.S. Department of Transportation records by allowing his drivers to operate without a valid commercial driver’s license (CDL) and exceed the maximum number of hours truckers are legally allowed to drive, ignoring the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s hours-of-service regulations.

                    He also admitted to fraudulently obtaining more than $400,000 in loans from various financial institutions using five different company names, continuing to illegally operate his trucking business using someone else’s identity after he was ordered to shut down his auto transport business by the FMCSA and tax evasion by commingling business and personal expenses.

                    In that case, Chaves is scheduled to be sentenced on July 17 in U.S. District Court in Providence, Rhode Island, according to court filings.

                                  Something to do with corporate accounts. Say a large company like Intel, everytime they wipe and reinstall a pc they cant be expected to use a unique key, they get the software to generate new ones, thats my limited understanding of it.

                                  These guys are selling those generated keys.
                                  This too shall pass.

                                    Gave him a spin cooking the dinner that night and enjoyed it, very atmospheric, movie score type of stuff. Guessing that's where you came accross him?

Cutting it fine in terms of getting everything done before surgery as need to go into hospital the next day to stay there overnight before surgery early the following morning. Such a dumbass idea to have a heart operation and move countries in the same few months.

                                              She definitely needs some blinds on the bedroom, as without a doubt you saw her coming.

                                                                          The house I'm in belongs to my mom so putting an antenna on the chimney or something would probably be grand. I'm hoping there might just be a network issue this weekend because the signal seemed fine yesterday but the way it is at the moment I definitely can't work from the house. I'm more than happy to pay for the modem.

                                                                                                    As for McGrath, probably a bit dodge alright, but he apparently likes it and it is a Eusebio reference...stadium of light etc

Mrs D3 took all other keys in house to bathroom this morning in an attempt to source a replacement. Then duly locked herself in and the key that locked the door would magically not unlock it

                                                                                                        I managed to make a bad situation worse by suggesting that maybe she should have tested the replacement keys when the door was open.

Just a simple thing in the door knob to push a bolt shut is surely vastly superior. The poor kids having to put up with your archaic key habit. No wonder they lost it to send you into the 21st century.

Also pretty decent.
                                                                                                                      Impressive organisation since she didn't know most of the people. Anyway, got a couple of gins, this one is very nice!

                                                                                                                      sGjC43Dl.jpg

                                                                                                                      The second was Hendrick's and was named after me, I didn't know you could get them customised (found out now it wasn't, they did all the labels themselves!), so that was very cool!

                                                                                                                      uSdoK6Wl.jpg
