  1. Crazy story if true. Khashoggi went into the Saudi embassy and hasn't been seen since.

    The TV Thread

    Couldn't find the old one... A Touch of cloth on sky had been great. Airplane meets murder detective show. (null)

    Where are the riots Mr President?
  6. This may be AOB but I think there are hints of similar things in RL. Major difference is we are not in a financially great position to begin with. However, I think some of the points translate, about becoming invisible for a short term gain (sky, online clips, etc). I always think of the ‘Big Hits’ video that did the rounds years ago, it was everywhere, before it got taken down and striked for copyright. Instead of chasing fans for copyright infringements for showing clips or tries on twitter or YouTube, we should be putting them out officially during a game. Someone scores a great try, clip it, put logos on it and put it out there to be shared, much better than a recording a tv on your mobile? The NFL do this I think? I noticed that the last 2 tests down under had the highlights on YouTube really quick, surely that’s the way to go? Short term you might gain by putting a game on the Our League app for a few quid, but long term would doing it for free on YouTube and Facebook be better? Can clubs do more? Behind the scenes? Training? Match day? Is there more than just a few news items a week and the score on the match day? Just throwing it out, what do you think?

    Our new position in the EU

    Last week he was having a go at UK based car manufacturers for their Brexit stance.

    Trump is putting everything into the midterms, lies and more lies that he knows fires up his base. Here he says a new tax cut plan is in the pipeline. Yet congress isn’t sitting so nothing can ‘go in’. The immigration ‘caravan’ isn’t enough, it’s now full of middle eastern terrorists. The Dems are paying for the ‘caravan’ was a new one... He knows how much the midterms mean and is prepared to do anything.

    Is it a bit tacky? Yes. But pathetic cretin? It’s just typical of the guy, he has form.

    H just posted that to the Tories thread. Stewart Jackson has been a boorish oaf for a long time.

    Morals and arms sales are always an iffy area. We don't have a big enough armed forces to support a defence industry on its own. So you either subsidise or get other countries to make the numbers work. Though we are currently looking to give Korea more ship building contracts so we have somewhat of a mixed message to our own industry.

    At the moment Team ERG are stamping their feet and now blocking/rebelling on legislation but are getting to a point where they have to put up or shut up. Team Davis is on manoeuvres trying to get support but again he with needs to do something quick or his chance has gone. And Team Boris are seeing their popularity polling dropping and are currently briefing against Davis (he did nothing as Brexit secretary, etc). Will next weeks budget be the crunch? By voting it down? They haven't got much time if they want to get rid of May, get someone else in an re-negociate a deal with the EU.

    Our new position in the EU

    Gibraltar has a hard border already with Passport checks, no common travel area and it is not part of the customs union. You have limited duty free items (200 cigs, 1 litre of spirits, etc).

    The ERG pulled their planned rebellion later in the week on a NI bill - Which sounds like another ERG mess up. Yesterday there was lots of talk of a cabinet revolt, yet today the y were back in the fold. One MP used the phrase 'all fart and no ' Have the ERG begun to look weak, they keep threatening but then backing down?

    Our new position in the EU

    Mr Raab currently trying to reassure the house that voting for the deal or no deal first then followed by amendments is a perfectly normal thing. Even if its the opposite of what normally happens, what the previous secretary said and the opposite of what the Procedures committee recommended?

    Sports marketing in a digital world

    Would club media people have an option @Dave Naylor @Gav Wilson

    Sports marketing in a digital world

    Speculate to accumulate. One thing digital advertising does give you is better data, you can see which adverts are driving sales. You get actual numbers. Should the RFL be helping clubs share best practice? Training the volunteers at a lower level? Local newspapers are dying, so what can be done to get stories out there? Are we still too set in our ways?

    They could buy from Russia, but if they want the best, they will stick to the USA, UK and France. They also get good subsidies on the 'support' contracts and advisors. Its not as easy as you might think to jump from the US to Russian equipment for example. Plus Russia isn't a big importer of oil and doesn't have the Navy that the USA keeps in the region that protects the Saudi's. There are jobs that could be impacted mind you, so he's not wrong on that, but he's wrong on the numbers - But selling arms is the Christian thing to do apparently -

    Tommy Robinson

    Looks like he was a Sikh after all, his parents are Sikh but he wasn't baptised. The conversation mentioned in court was his baptism apparently. Not that it matters much tbh.

    Oh and really you should have a backup of your NAS/external hard drive and either a cloud solution and/or off site backup....
  23. Bedford Roughyed

    Nas Drives

    A NAS is better if you have multiple devices, laptop, desktop and music thingy. One advantage of a NAS is that you can do auto backups. I find with external drives I don't actually back them up often. With photos, maybe look at a RAID option?

    To early to say. The incumbent usual has a big advantage. No idea who the Dems will pick, that could be a decisive factor. Trump already promising middle class tax cuts before the end of the year. And as always, events dear boy events.
