Hilariously, it has turned out my computer's copy of Windows is not genuine.

I'm not 100% sure that is the cause of the problems, but it does mean the company is now 110% at fault and has all legal liability.

oh dear...

I'd like to offer some impractical and unsolicited advice.

Hire porters.  It's what all the best people do.

Best impractical and unsolicited advice ITT.

a wheelie grocery bag?

drag that shit, don't heft it.

 :lulz: Can't tell if srs or being facetious.

To be honest it sounds like a good suggestion.  A small luggage bag with wheels/handle might be just thing thing.

Yes, it is certainly a novel suggestion that no student has ever before considered, not in any way a common sight on all college campuses everywhere in the world, and there is no possible way that I may have rejected it for reasons I never would have anticipated explaining on a forum.

Seriously, guys, the problem with unsolicited advice based on incomplete knowledge is that it's tiresome and almost always unintentionally both condescending and stupid, and generally puts the unwilling advisee in a situation where they are explaining details that nobody gives any fucks about, like the part where their walk from downtown to south waterfront precludes dragging a stupid small case on wheels. Not to mention what a pain in the ass those things are on the bus.

I was just complaining. Not asking for solutions to a mundane problem absolutely nobody on the internet knows enough details of to possibly have the tools to solve. Suggesting really obvious solutions gives me the impression you think I'm an idiot, and is a waste of everyone's time.

apologies, my bad. or wheelie bag, IDK

Not trying to shit on your wheelie bag, Pix. It's just that I wasn't looking for advice, nor anticipating having to explain why a bunch of really rather obvious solutions that work fine for many people don't work for my particular scenario. Plus I worked out the logistics already, which is what my OP on the topic was about needing to do.

Fair enough. I often post before reading the rest of the thread.

two-dimensional metallic dielectric photonic crystal

Here was me thinking materials science was all about the nanotubes and the graphene but fuck me there's so much more to it than that!  :eek:

It's also about making transparent aluminum and then immediately making it obsolete.

Materials science is a very broad field, and it's ALL sexy.

TRANSPARENT ALUMINIUM? LIKE STAR TREK? :FAP:

that tumblr is GENIUS- followed.

i think I need to order a bisexual pride flag, complete with feminist book and glass dildo.

also i got a new wireless keyboard with the shallower keys (srsly the keyboard is tiny) and now I apparently don't have to worry about RAGE TYPING sounding like a machine gun and waking up the entire house with my insomniac habits.

I also am having to use spellcheck less and seem to have a faster more accurate typing speed. All of those things are pleasing to me :D

I am especially amused by the fact that this policy has apparently been in place for the last ten years, and it's only now that people are noticing.

The whole thing, really, is kind of delicious.

I think they only just started enforcing it.

Nope. When a friend of mine came out as trans Facebook demanded all sorts of documents and shit from him to change his account name. this was about a year or so ago.

It was all so tedious he said FUCK IT and opened a new acct.

Aneristic Illusions / Re: Generation Y Can't I Do That

I wonder if Raz has actually ever tried to engage with a fat beer swelling bonehead, the worst collection of walking tattoo flash art and nationalist cliches on no neck bullies who actively target women of colour; white women who dare disagree and make them look like dunces ALL whilst claiming that islam is sexist. THEN they get in a flap about halal meat being served in Subway when the first thing they do after getting out of the pub is have a fecking doner kebab? I mean if you aren't a vegetarian your moral stance on that is pretty fucking shaky.

All I know is that he threw the boot in while I was down.  His post in this thread just confirms my existing opinion of him.

oh, and all that EDL posturing over the Rotterham thing IGNORES that they have convicted sex offenders in their own ranks too...

I mean, it gets to a point where all you can do is  :horrormirth: about their hypocrisy over pretty much everything and watch the National Front and the EDL kick the shit out of each other.

If they're gonna beat each other up, stay out of the way.  Then pick up a fucking brick to deal with the ones left standing.
