Re: indoor positioning system technology

On the face of it, it sounds similar to the idea of the track and trace app that is being talked about - using Bluetooth to decide how close you've come to another person / device with the app. Adding in gyroscope and so on should increase accuracy. Do they have some kind of demo / trial you can hav...

Re: Last book read

I've just finished the new John Grisham, "The Guardians", very good but quite a few stories merged into the single book which is reasonably unusual for him.

Re: Your Last Gig

Stranglers, Manchester Apollo 2019. We don't have any music venues locally, so I only tend to go and see bands I already know I like. I used to look at the list of who was on at Liverpool Academy because there's a train back at a decent time, with the intention of trying out some other bands, but I ...

Re: Last book read

"A brush with death" by Quintin Jardine. Another by an author I haven't read for a while, and it was very good indeed, as his always are.

Re: FACEBOOK - 'don't like'.

In the last few days I've been reminded of a few of the less pleasant aspects of Facebook. 1. People who call out other Facebook users for not expressing their grief on the site. 2. Similarly, people who call out other Facebook users for not being effusive enough in their expression of grief. I can'...

Re: Music Industry Nicknames

Isn't it only Rod Stewart that refers to Elton John as "Sharon"? Elton calls Rod "Phyllis", apparently, when they phone each other up to chat. Hugh apparently used to give nicknames to people, Chrissie Hynde-leg was one, and Loose Windscreen was Bruce Springsteen. I can't imagine modern artists dare...

Re: Last book read

"Close your eyes" by Michael Robotham. A good book, I've read a few of his before and had forgotten how good they are.

Re: Uploading images

Excellent. As it turns out, the two I uploaded are still readable at 600x so it's no issue. It was just to take out the guesswork of how small things needed to get. I don't upload a lot of photos onto here, though I might go through some article scans when I get a minute.

Re: Uploading images

Could you edit the "image too large" message to include the limits? I just uploaded a couple, I always resize to 800 pixels across by whatever the aspect ratio dictates for vertical height, but it just said "too large". It'd be handy to know what the limit is. I resized both to 600xwhatever and they...

Re: Crap Joke No.83840370

While riding my Harley, I swerved to avoid hitting a deer, lost control and landed in a ditch, severely banging my head. Dazed and confused I crawled out of the ditch to the edge of the road when a shiny new convertible pulled up with a very beautiful woman who asked, "Are you okay? As I looked up, ...

Re: Crap Joke No.83840370

BA have announced an offer where people can fly cheaply to Ireland one day, and Germany the next.

It's a limited deal - Eire today, Bonn tomorrow.
