  1. Accused of torrenting copyrighted material

      I do not know of an ISP that will accept payment like that, they all want your bank account   Do you know of any ISP's that would accept a post office payment, if so please list them here     
  2. Accused of torrenting copyrighted material

      Well my ISP, does not accept bitcoin! and I think you will struggle to find one that does. I am interested, how can you pay Anonymously ? thats accept by an ISP in Germany.   I have had my IP connection for more than 20 years, I thought they asked for my passport as well when I got it, I know that for mobile phone use you now have to show them your passport  - which is another way for them to find you.   All the services I buy in Germany, I pay through my bank account, and they want to see my passport as well.   Most people either do not torrent or get a VPN, otherwise you will probably get a bill for copyright protection infringement    
  3. Accused of torrenting copyrighted material

      When you take an internet connection, you have to give your name and address, also you normally give then  a bank account to pay for the internet connection   All of this information can be used to track you down  
  4. Accused of torrenting copyrighted material

    normally, they have your IP address, they ask the IP provider for that IP address who the owner is, the IP provider has to by law tell the asking lawyer - that's why @murphaph, got the bill. As he was paying the bill for the internet in the flat he rents out. Of course murphaph, just explained he was not living there, and forwarded the problem to his tenant

    they can ask for the name of the person paying the bills, and take it from their
  6. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

      They are trying to pick the good strawberries from the bad ones, most packages I buy have several bad strawberries in them - by the way I just look at the package - if I cannot see any bad ones I buy the package, but I always find bad ones in there.    People just want the best value like always, ie not wanting to buy damaged or bad fruit. I do look at the apples I buy, to get the good ones.
  7. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

      As my company is about to deliver, I am going in to work more often then normal. They have opened the works canteen, there are clearly marked lines on the floor, I stared queuing at the line, leaving a gap between me and the guy in front, then somebody just walked in front of me and start queing, I said, hey the cue starts behind me, and several other guys behind me - he look round, at the long que and decided he was not going to the end of it.   What a -hole, seems like everybody is doing this  in my canteen, there is no-respect for the painted lines from anybody, its like leaving a braking gap, while I am on the autobahn, if you leave a safety gap somebody will fill it. The same people will complain like hell when the virus comes back and lockdown re-introduced.
  8. Coronachat - vents, whines, flummoxes & miscellaneous

    A fellow stuck in a coronavirus outbreak, prayed to God for help.   Soon the head of the WHO came by. He said “Try social distancing! It can save you!” The fellow shouted back, "No, it's OK, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me.” So the head of the WHO went on. Then Dr. Fauci came by and told the man “Wear a mask! It can save you!” The fellow said, "No thanks, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me. I have faith." So Dr. Fauci went on. So the fucking world came by - shouting “Wear a mask! Try social distancing. Stay inside your fucking house! It can save you!” To this the fellow replied, "No thanks, I'm praying to God and he is going to save me. I have faith." So the world went on its way. Then the man threw a surprise birthday party for a family member and 17 people got sick. One person died. Two more would be sick, and damaged for the rest of their lives. There’s no punchline. This really happened. Wear a mask. Don’t be a  idiot.
  9. Shame on you, Lufthansa

      They will just say the price was going to go up by 6%, before the cut, now they only have to put it up by 3 %, so the customer benfits 
  10. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

    thanks for the info
  11. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

      my phone does not have a glove cabinet , so not worries there  
  12. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

    Intresting Video.   Several points were made, one being, that a lot of people just did not like the way things are done on the Tesla, with so much software. Of course software is cheaper than installing a switch, as its all control panel and it can be upgraded over the air. But some or a lot of people just do not like that, they prefer a real switch or button, which some people would say as a design issue.  For software compaines its an advantage but maybe not for the end user.   I use a newist smart phone, but sometimes have problems operating it, just because I do not want to invest the time required to lean the new ways of doing things, I just want it to work in an abvious way to me, which is not always the way the guy programmed it thinks. Tesla has to sell to a lot of people and if it does not work like they want, then they walk a way with a bad felling, hence the low rating for Tesla.   I heard, if you want to open the glove cabinet, you have to use the screen find the right menu of a menu of a menu and push a button to open it. I would hate that ! You cannot even pust most used function on the home screen, I heard.    I like real button to push.

  14. Travel to the US and back.

    Buying the tickets is not the problem, the airline can just cancel the flight and then try to to give you vouchers for another flight. Some airlines re-fuse to gove you your money back, so if you book 3 or 4 flights you could have a lot of money tied up with not much chance of getting it back for some time.

    J.D. Power Qualitätsreport 2020 sorry to say ( for the Tesla fanboys ), Tesla, has taken last place.   https://www.auto-motor-und-sport.de/verkehr/j-d-power-qualitaetsranking-2020-tesla-auf-dem-letzten-platz/     https://www.theverge.com/2020/6/25/21302804/tesla-ranks-last-on-influential-jd-power-quality-survey   Seems when you buy a Tesla, you just do not get a car, but also alot problems as well, 70,000 euro auto.   Still according to some buy a new battery and and new computer and all the problems will be fixed    
  16. Not sure, but I guess the other company, would make a bid. or a share price offer, then the share holders would have a vote to accept or reject the share offer.   Normally the offer would be more than current share price to give an incentive to accept the offer, then the current share holders would get the share price offer  times the numner of shares they hold
  17. US Netflix

      Try connecting through your VPN and from a browser look up, what your location is.   Also test which speed the VPN has.   Are you using a credit card to pay for netflix, where is that registered?, better if its regisiterd in the US

    Seems, like Tesla on  auto-pilot stop the car when it seems a Burger King sign, seems like a good idea Elon   https://screenrant.com/burger-king-takes-whopper-advantage-of-teslas-autopilot-stop-sign-issue/  
  19. Living in Munich but paid in USD - is it allowed?

    sorry I just do not know enough to help you, but as a general rule here, its best to be as honest as possible on this site, if people spot problems in your story they will come down on you hard on this site.
  20. Living in Munich but paid in USD - is it allowed?

       I guess you are in India at the moment, maybe you could edit your profile to show where you are actual now, because you just said you are not in Germany now   If you get a VISA, to live in EU/Germany, then you just have to register as self-employed, which will be part of the VISA process as well, I think you also need to prove you have somewhere to live as well. Self employed people can work non-normal hours and non-standard wages, its not a problem.   Good luck with your plan
  21. Berlin to get a Tesla Gigafactory

    I welcome some form of regulation on auto-driving. If tesla ( or other companies ) want to self drive in the EU - Japan etc, I guess that they have to show the system is safe before it can be deployed.- and no Muck putting out an over the air update until its shown to work   
  22. Brexit: The fallout

  23. ADAC in 2014 and before, manipulated the result of the best car award, so that German cars would always win, ADAC was a trusted source of information on which cars were ok to buy, but after the scandal they were  shown to be baised   https://www.sueddeutsche.de/auto/manipulation-beim-gelben-engel-autohersteller-erwaegen-rueckgabe-von-adac-preis-1.1882155   https://www.thelocal.de/20140120/adac-boss-cooks-car-award-votes https://www.ft.com/content/774ae82a-81b5-11e3-a600-00144feab7de   yes, Luke, that trusted ADAC firm
  24. Was listening to a German radio station, yesterday - it said that after the FT journalists, reported problems with Wirecard, that the German regulators talked to Wirecard, who saying everything is ok. Then the regulators started to threaten the FT journalists with being in league with shorters and other people trying to bring down Wirecard down without good reason they even talked about jail time for them, to get them to shut up.    To me it just further undermines the the feeling i have towards the German financial system,  which comes on the back the the VW emissions scandal, and ADAC scandal, seems its easier for the Germans to lie through their teeth than properly regulate their profitable industries. Hopefully London/ NY regulators will keep up the standards  
  25.   I am sorry from your original post    you do say " I have made 10 per cent this year.", I assumed you made 10 profit on your investments, not 10 percent more tomatoes - or you were joking :)
