London Black Cabs Threaten Chaos To Stop Uber

ciderbrew Re:Brilliant move... (417 comments)

Having used black cabs for a number of year going all over London (work was paying). I can tell you a great many of them fail at every point you mention. Some use satnavs - many have the AtoZ and sneak a look. Just about all bump up the fair by taking a silly route. It may have been great years ago; but not anymore.

If you're going to disprove my point with facts and logic that's unsportsmanlike.

'The Door Problem' of Game Design

ciderbrew Re:Will the door have windows? (305 comments)

I'm going for a manager vibe. I've read the word json somewhere and I think all company use of HTML should in the Json now. So if you could just implement that and fill out this TPS report that would be great.

ciderbrew Re:RPG Games (305 comments)

A good thing. I'd have to open every door in the game. I don't have OCD. OCD.. OCD... O.C.D.

ciderbrew Will the door have windows? (305 comments)

I'd like little windows so people can see into the next room. These are always missing in games.
ALSO, I want to shoot something through the doors and blow them up with things.

UK Bans Sending Books To Prisoners

ciderbrew Re:begrudge education (220 comments)

He/she used the Department for Education’s total budget; but not the Ministry of Justices’ total budget, which isn't a win for any argument and shows a lack of awareness. You'd not be happy with cherry picking stats either, order of magnitude difference or otherwise. There are around 8.5 million Children in the system and around 100k prisoners. Each prisoner costs way more more per head than child, per year.

If they spent the same on education as they did on locking people up per year then maybe you wouldn't have to lock so many people up.

Google Sued Over Children's In-App Android Purchases

ciderbrew Re:Dad .. Can I? (321 comments)

Chores are not worth me putting credit card details into a phone so this type of thing can happen. Free download and airplane mode on switched if about as far as i'll go. Ever handed over some tools and an old radio or VHS player to take apart? All you have to do is loosen some screws and you've a whole afternoon of fun.

ciderbrew Dad .. Can I? (321 comments)

No!
Oh but why?
No!
But. But.. That's not fair.
Don't care. Grow up unhappy.

Kids need to learn how to say No! to their kids or you end up with shitty grandchildren.
That's my motivation and future investment in people done.
