Plus, of course, holding an opinion about a group behaviour is not the issue. It was the attacking of one individual that did it. To then suggest they throw their business your way is the height of cluelessness. And again - I don’t know who you think you are, but you have no place telling people they never learn, like you are some kind of authority. You’re the king of not learning that attempting to deflect criticism of your behaviour doesn’t work. Kindly shove your coffee that you drive for miles to get thereby damaging the environment up your chuff.

She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

Take it easy on Macdoc. He attains forgiveness for his frequent flights to Australia and elsewhere and his many long distance joyrides on big motorbikes by buying indulgences. Well, the modern-day equivalent, contributing to carbon offset funds anyway. You too can indulge in globetrotting, CO2 spewing travels purely for enjoyment and with a clear conscience by paying into one of those funds.

Forgiveness for CD$120 a year! What's not to like about that? It would still be cheap at thrice the money. A clear conscience is priceless. What's more, you get a bonus. No, not a set of steak knives. Better than that. You will be given an immeasurable sense of self-righteousness.


As for the real estate market, yes, it's flooded with predatory elements, be they the mortgage finance types or property speculators. People who buy a home in order to live in it are not in either predatory group. I have listed my (non-predatory) reasons for buying on here, and I bet Felltoearth is another person among millions of homeowners who did not buy one in order to make a quick quid from the purchase. Macdoc ignored it. His opinion about homeowners is as arrogant as it is ignorant.

Nothing like downloading a 2GB file in 5 minutes and installing a 3GB application in 30 seconds. Still waiting for my personal rocket pack transport but this will do in the meantime.

I was thinking of just spending about £800 on a laptop and buying one of those super fast Samsung SSDs as a second drive and an extra stick of RAM. Seems much cheaper than actually buying the laptop ready made with the specs I want.

For home/consumer use that makes the most sense. Do you really need an 8 core processor?

That's the downside of Mac laptops past 2012 ...less expansion.
At least up to 2015 the laptops can handle th NVMe flash drives.
Current ones....what you buy is what you get period.

That said ....the drives are so fast that low RAM is less of an issue than in the past for the consumer user.
