  2. I use Chrome browser. Mainly for it's integration with my google account and favourites etc. Seems to work fine but not tested with Live. Samsung SM-A300FU
  3. I appreciate that but it's being treat as a religious attack Obviously we don't understand the motives of the attack at present. Ultimately people are dicks and people shouldn't have to live in fear just because they are different.
  4. I'm not going to get involved in the debate en masse, mainly because I don't have the time to come and respond to anything that I write at the moment but I figured there'd be some interesting discussion on this particular topic. As for the statement about muslims wanting world domination due to their holy scripture outlining these points then does it not all boil down to the interpretation of said book? There are many factions of all religions and not all of them follow their religious texts to the letter devout or not. The fundamentalist regime spreading throughout the middle east and Europe is what people would deem as the true interpretation of the Quran but the Wahhabi interpreted text. http://www.newstatesman.com/world-affairs/2014/11/wahhabism-isis-how-saudi-arabia-exported-main-source-global-terrorism As for the threat of refugees or migrants coming to our shores and being part of a sleeper cell for a terrorist organisation is something that was always going to happen, yet it seems that we are at most risk by radicalised youths in our own countries. The more worrying bit is that these people are already known to the authorities, and were still able to commit such atrocities. There is no easy answer to the troubles we face and part of the issue may lie with Turkey or other European countries, some of which may lie closer to threegee's door than everyone realises. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/03/24/inside-the-mafia-isis-connection.html If your first question is "what is the daily beast and is it a reliable source?" then my response to that would be that you should be asking that question of every article you read. What we tend to find now is that a lot of the main coverage is performed by a core set of journalists and the reporting, stolen, shared, regurgitated and taken out of context across the internet. I don't have the answers, and I don't expect any of you lot will. Even if we did we wouldn't be likely to get them in front of an audience where they would be listened to, cared about our considered. Sad times that we are living in at present, and when these topics can stem religious attacks like the one of a Asad Shah in Scotland yesterday because this person was of a particular religion or ethnic group then we need to start worrying about the likes of the gentleman who was arrested for asking a muslim lady about Belgium. One thing that annoys me about the media is the different ways that they report terrorist attacks based on the racial origins of the person committing the offence. White people can still be terrorists. I don't tend to see a lot of these discussions on Facebook due to having removed everyone but a core group of friends, but when I heard some of the unresearched, regurgitated opinions that people discuss at work or out in public, my standard response is to research it for themselves and form their own opinion as this is how stereotypes are allowed to remain.
  5. I always turn the windows updates off and I will do them when I want to do them. Never update automatically, I'm aware from the patching we do at work that it's not sensible to even wait 'x' amount of time due to unsuspecting issues.

  9. Anyone with children or grandchildren need to take note of the situation and educate themselves on the dangers on the internet. This will naturally filter down to the children, who from my experiences, generally have unsolicited access to the entire internet, despite recent court orders to filter certain traffic and block sites.
  10. So you mean Cameron's porn filter didn't work?
  11. until
  12. You can edit the stream so that it only displays discussions and you can change the setting to all posts you have not read, posts you have not read since your last visit etc.
  13. I am absolutely gutted about this. Thought I'd heard it wrong in the radio this morning on the way to work. RIP David Bowie (innovator, pioneer, influencer) One of those days that unites everyone whether you were a fan of his music or not. His influence on popular culture is unimaginable
  14. Has that annex you can see in the image been replaced with what is now the new porch? Edit: It would appear so.
  15. Not really had any issues personally but I don't use the built in search or edge browser so may not have noticed. I had to disable all of the metro features so the missus didn't smash the laptop for not doing as it's told. They've already been penalised for monopolising browsers, it's practically malware.

  17. Seen it was getting done out the other day when I was in getting fuel.
  18. Hi Seamus, the picnic itself is unfortunately not still happening but there has been The Big Event for the past few years which has been a great success and hugely popular. Generally around the third week in June as it always lands on my anniversary.
