    Theres no reason for people to move around the globe like some nomadic gypsy,, its a idea dreamt up by wankey globalist middle class pricks with nothing better to do with there lives then to "find themselves"
     People want there cultures kept intact without incomers upsetting the apple cart , and lords of the manor forcing me to bend over backwards to except them, im sorry but my family and me have nothing in common with these nomads and im not changing my way of life so a bunch of globalists can make a few more pennys off me

    Overall effort wise 60% of effort spent writing tests of some sort isnt outrageous.
    Tests and code should be built incrementally in sync, so writing all the tests or all the code first isn't generally optimal.
    Given the incremental approach, there are nuances around whether you do should do the code or the test increment first and going the test increment first has some theoretical advantages like making sure your test will actually fail if the code doesn't work. In practice I normally do code increments first unless its a production bug where the extra discipline of doing the test first is worth it.

    Non technical testers get about £2-300 per day. Not bad for what's really a fairly basic job. 
    I'm on £300+ just now and it's a bit more than testing. I am allegedly a finance type bod. But it's pretty cruisy. 10-15 hrs week on average I would guess. That's a pretty amazing hourly rate.

    It's funny because that's exactly what they wanted to turn the internet into, a subscription service where you pay for a set number of websites like you would for cable TV.

    If considering the UK's national interest that's hardly an endorsement of May's Withdrawal Agreement.

    Dave Bloke reacted to The XYY Man in Noise Cancelling Headphones   
    Disagree vehemently.
    I need the TV at very loud settings being a bit deaf. Mrs XYY and me cannot watch a film together without arguing over the TV volume. The neighbours have also had to knock on the wall - and wearing headphones solves all of this aggro.
    I am watching a 55" TV at about 4 meters distance downstairs, or a projector picture of 101" from ten feet in my man-cave - either way that's a long wire for a clumsy twat like me to trip over. Easy to come a cropper, especially in the dark...!
    Also, I can go for a piss, and still listen - this is good when I am tuned-in to live sport on the radio.
    My wireless 'phones are a gift from God - curse the unbeliever...!

    I am hearing from the youngsters and not so youngsters at work that WhatsApp or Instagram, I forget which or it may even be both, is the one they use.
    Facebook is going the way of Friends Reunited particularly because it is often used by parents to keep an eye on their children.
    Hey, sharing your social media with your parents. That's hardly what a hep cool cat would do.

    Dave Bloke reacted to SpectrumFX in EU funding disappearing / general moan   
    Horizon 2020 is a research programme not a business development programme.
    The treaty of Rome explicitly limits the support that the state can give to business because government intervention in the free market goes against the founding principles of the EU.
    However take a closer look and it turns out that that's bollocks, and the bureaucrats don't follow their own principles because they think that they know best, and that everything must surely work better with the involvement of some twat from the government (spoiler alert. It doesn't).
    So some public sector policy twonk ends up "picking winners" to get grants. The whole thing's become a bent as fuck protectionist bureaucratic Kafkaesque nightmare, and the sooner we're out of it the better.

    Facebook usage is down 20% after they censored pretty much everyone to the right of Bernie Sanders the latest data has revealed.

    as the same time an alliance of 16 of the world's leading brands along with Democratic politicians have called for more censorship and want the platforms to be "just like TV"
