Personally, I think that the coronavirus is the Earth's (or Gaia's, if you prefer) way of re-balancing the earth's ecology, by removing the super-spreaders (or Frequent Fliers). Nice to see a disease which affects the rich more than the poor.


Which explains why politicians and merchant bankers (may be taken as Cockney rhyming slang) are in such a flap about it

And here in UK, they have reduced the bank rate to 0.25% so people will spend more of the money they won't have because they won't be able to go to work to earn any. Oh wait, they will be borrowing it hence the relevance of the interest rate. Still if echoed by the building society it might save me a fiver a month.


I like lower interest rates, as I have a mortgage, others have credit cards. Not sure why so many people think a low interest rate is a bad thing. Who has savings? A very rich few I would imagine.

But a minor change in interest rates is not enough to change my habits. I buy things when I need them or have the money.

ROFL at the Cockney. And as for politicians: Poly = many, ticks = blood sucking things, so politics means?

Not complaining about the interest rate coming down. Well not for another three years anyway.

Hmph, my mortgage is bigger than it was when I took it out 20 years ago. Neither a borrower nor a lender be? Nobody seems to stick to that anymore. And no, I'm not religious, but that one does make sense. I'd never have kids unless I could buy them their first home outright. Living most of your life paying interest is wrong.

On top of that, to battle the other crisis we have, from the 16th onwards we can't drive faster than 100 kilometers per hour anymore on the motorway (is now 130 kph).
In the UK we're halfway between those and have been for a long time, but it's to do with "safety" rather than "pollution". Of course most people simply ignore it and drive any speed they want. I tend to go 160kph. The pigs are easy enough to spot.
When I was there in March and September/October last year everyone drove around 60 mph because of all the road works. Most M-ways had miles and miles and miles of road works. With a traffic camera every 500 yards. And if no road works, then the variable speed limits were fun. Didn't see many people ignore those either.

What I did see was a person drive around with part of the body work of his car hanging loose, it flapping in the wind, and not even the police being bothered about it. Other priorities.

That's to stop polluting our nature with NOX.
So presumably if you buy an electric car, you would be allowed to drive as fast as you like?
No, same slow pace as everyone else. Besides, your electric car pollutes as hard as your non-electric car, because it still needs to juice up from the wall-socket and here most electricity coming out the wall is still made by biomass electric plants, gas plants and here and there a coal plant.

There is the story of a homeless person in the city of London, asking a smartly dressed gent to lend him a fiver being told,

The homeless person replied,

"C***." D.H. Lawrence.

Yip, we love doing up roads that are in perfect condition and leaving others to fall to pieces. I don't know why - they must have them on a schedule and not just simply inspect them or something.

But those without roadworks, I tend to break the speed limit by a considerable margin every few minutes. Not had a ticket for 10 years. I do love satnavs - every single camera is known about :-)

Most M-ways had miles and miles and miles of road works. With a traffic camera every 500 yards. And if no road works, then the variable speed limits were fun. Didn't see many people ignore those either.


I do. See those huge ones on yellow poles taller than streetlamps? They're average cameras (called SPECS). People don't seem to understand what average means. If I'm stuck behind a lorry below the speed limit, that means if I get past it I can break the limit for the remainder of that section. My car (and most modern cars - mine is actually 18 years old) has a setting on the dash to show you average speed, I simply reset it every time I pass a camera, so I know my AVERAGE speed must be correct when I pass the next one. And also they'll let you off with 5mph over. People think I'm nuts when I go 90 in a 50.

What I did see was a person drive around with part of the body work of his car hanging loose, it flapping in the wind, and not even the police being bothered about it. Other priorities.


That's not that common. Police will stop you for that. He'd probably recently had an accident, you can't expect people to get it fixed instantly. You get let off with it for 2 weeks. It's also got me let off with speeding on a few occasions, they were more concerned about my missing exhaust than the speed I was going.

No, same slow pace as everyone else. Besides, your electric car pollutes as hard as your non-electric car, because it still needs to juice up from the wall-socket and here most electricity coming out the wall is still made by biomass electric plants, gas plants and here and there a coal plant.


Ah but the pollution isn't local to where you're driving and clogging up the city. You don't get done for using more electricity at home, why get done for driving harder?

He wanted a cake? My mother does that - if a homeless person asks for money, she takes him for a meal. "Otherwise he'll just spend it on booze!"

I read £300 million a year in total in the UK. 3 million "offences" x £100 each. I re-invoke D H Lawrence.

So there is fuck


At least you can use that word. Some forums automatically put in ****, although that does make it fun to misspell swearwords.

all moderation on this forum then?


Should there be? Freedom of speech is what made America er.... where was I going with that?

Says who? Besides, there's still Bernie and Les. But you don't think I give up so easily because someone complains about me having an opinion? I've been playing this game since 2005, I know how to play catch.

Enough with the language, whatever you want to call it.

Babbling incessantly about PCI express risers is one thing, but this thread appears to have become a personal blog.
Cool it.

Or even better, I won't bother coming here if you're going to be like that. Nothing wrong with some friendly banter. Maybe I should stop donating my PC time and my expensive electricity if the moderators are going to get upset about childish things like this.

And how can you say PCI Express risers is off topic? They're used for Boinc!!

I think the owl was giving a warning about the language (swearing). I think we can have any discussion in this thread, as long as it's done clean. So far all the pages before no one was swearing. Until one guy dropped the F-bomb and you and I went with a unwanted A-word. No need to walk off or take your computers elsewhere.

I have a pet hate of people who think a word can be bad. I have no desire to have to remember which words can't be used where. I was once banned from a forum for using a D word! It's like the thing that holds water, but apparently offends religious nutters people.

Well, we do have those rules on the left when you make a post. I don't enforce them so strictly, as I think we're all adults here and we know when we go too far with our language. I also give everyone one swear word per day, but even if you post ten you won't get banished over it. Not by me. I'll discuss it with you, will ask you why there's the need to use those words when there are so many others that say the same thing without the loaded meaning. I'm sometimes glad we're not a birds forum...

What D-word is so bad?
