  1. Ford v Ferrari The well known story of Shelby and Ken Miles, The Ford GT40 and Le Mans Christian Bales portrayal of Ken Miles was excellent apart from, what I thought, was the most dodgy English accent heard in a movie since Dick van Dyke’s Bert the Chimney Sweep in Mary Poppins. I honestly thought Bale was American, whereas in fact he is British who puts on the American accent and in Ford v Ferrari it was actually his real accent. My flabber is gasted
  2. Funnily enough must be 10 years or so when I last smoked the better stuff (in a country where legal) In fact not had a drink for over 2 years now, Doctors Orders.
  3. I forget about small businesses, I usually work on Multi-Billion USD Projects. Usually a project requirements specify latest version of windows or Windows NT, since NT support went this year probably just the latest. now. I don’t use windows, Mac man myself, but that is a different discussion.
  4. Cav, I am not knocking the use of XP for home use, your choice and I suppose it fits in well with your Rotary Phone, VHS Recorder and Abacus. What I am saying is that companies who still use XP for ICS or office networks are leaving themselves open to Ransomware, there is no money to be made from individuals but a lot from National and International Corporations the most famous being Wannacry
  5. Is it just me, or are other people getting pissed off wt being referred to as Cisgender or Cismale. To me CIS means Commonwealth of Independent States, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan etc not some old Latin prefix for “The Same Side” The term was introduced by the LBGT Community to differentiate between Trans (The Other Side in Latin) and non Trans. We already have a word MALE to denote such, no need to go adding Prefixes which 97% of the population never asked for and never knew we had the need to have such. How can a minority (approx 3%) dictate to me, give me a label and stick me in a Pigeonhole, they have forced an unwanted term onto others, and determining my own identity. They can go and wave their Rainbow Flags, Stick their pricks up each other’s arses, rests up as women and so on, no skin off my nose, as long as they don’t bother me. But giving me a label I don’t need is going to far. Rant Over
  6. Well, has been 3 years now, so long I forget that I ever smoked, whatever possessed me to start in the first place I will never know, probably peer pressure and trying to look cool / hard as a 15 year old. I used to have weird dreams after I stopped smoking, not sure of the full context but always involved going somewhere and I was dreaming “I can’t go, I have no smokes” and wake up looking for them, but they stopped after some time. That was probably the time I realized I was over the, for good. On the positive side, I have seen a Pulmonologist, the old lungs still at a decent capacity for my age and x-rays come back totally clean. He can’t believe I smoked for 40 years and at the end over 2 packs per day.
  7. And that is a well known about Security Risk to Industrial Control Systems. Ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline, Factory was running XP. Would not be allowed in O&G Production or Processing since the ICS is considered part of the Safety Critical Lifecycle Systems. Don’t forget Cav, I be an I&C Monkey also.
  8. More like Permian than Dinosaur Since XP launch 33% of the Global Population have been born
  9. You don’t speak Thai yet understand the printed version, why should TV be any different? It wasn’t me who was arrested, if it was I wouldn’t be posting.
  10. Thairath TV also available on YouTube
  11. But Bangkok Post or the Nation cannot be compared with say the Telegraph and Guardian in UK or Die Welt and Suddeutsche Zeitung in Germany Guardian online is very good for an online publication, but it does have a Northern bias starting life as the Manchester Guardian from my home City some of the abstract articles are very northern centric For me F1 died with the death of Senna in 1994, never been the same since.
  12. Cav, How long have you been here now mate? You know to expect surprises, the reason why Thailand has never qualified for a Football World Cup is because they are always moving the goalposts. Surprised you needed an online converter for making JPG can be done with Office and PDF editor
  13. Not only fun to watch, actually worth watching, Hunt/ Lauda excellent racing, surely it couldn’t get better than that, then come along Senna and Prost to prove me wrong. I used to follow F1 avidly back in those days, it was exciting, gave me a buzz, now I couldn’t care less and can’t remember the last time I watched a race, the only time I know the result is when I see the back pages of Monday’s newspaper. I know, we no longer have newspapers, allow this old fart poetic license, Back page of the newspaper always has and always will be synonymous with Sports headlines, just as much as page 3 is withTits.
  14. And whilst we are on Guy Richie Movies, who can forget Ocean Colour Scene, 100 Mile High City from Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels
  15. Just watched “Snatch” for the first time in about 20 years, movies thread? No this is about a track I had completely forgot about Massive Attack Angel
