  1. Conspiracy theorists

    @ john g.: I would love to have seen what Monty Python would have done with this current C19 crisis. Jesus, the mind boggles.
  2. Windows 10

    I'm thinking of upgrading (finally!) from Windows 7 to Windows 10. However, I read recently that Windows 10 has a keylogger built in as standard, which would allegedly let Google read all my emails etc. Does anyone know whether this is true or just hysterical propaganda / a nasty rumour? Thanks. onemark
  3. Windows 10

    OK. I haven't got it yet but I'll bear the tip in mind. Thanks. onemark.
  4. Only in America...

    @ BethAnnBitt: I'm curious to know whether Copeland also charged the faithful for this blessing/cure. Or did he merely request donations?
  5. I happily stand to be corrected but I thought "Mobbing" (bullying) was already a criminal offence in Germany.
  6. address registration

    Keep your flat. At some stage in the future you will not be doing this job and you will need somewhere to hang your hat on a more permanent basis.
  7. Mass Shooting in Hanau

    @ murphaph Of course we are all online. But I bet we're not (all) socially isolated the way this rooster was. I also believe he had psychological - if not psychiatric - problems.
  8. Mass Shooting in Hanau

    @Keleth The perpetrator was - among other things - socially isolated, especially as he seems to have spent long periods online. He can therefore hardly be said to have belonged to some sort of extreme right-wing organisation or other group.
  9. Mass Shooting in Hanau

    The only person responsible is the perpetrator, nobody else. He and he alone is guilty. To blame Merkel or even the EU is completely ----ing insane.
  10. Flip or Slider Mobile

    I have just ordered a Nokia C2-03. Thanks for all the advice. onemark
  11. Flip or Slider Mobile

    Am looking for a new mobile telephone for calls and text messages only. 1. no smartphones, just an ordinary "steam-powered" mobile; 2. dual sim; 3. flip or slider (preferably the latter); 4. no cameras; 5. no data; 5. priced under €100.00. Admittedly not an easy ask but suggestions still much appreciated. Thanks. onemark.
  12. Flip or Slider Mobile

    @lisa13 As I said in my introductory request, I am - essentially - looking for an ordinary "steam-powered" "Handy" (dual sim & slider; not a smartphone) with which I can make and receive calls and text messages. That's it. (I realise the phone I get may have some features I don't need but I can live with that.)
  13. Flip or Slider Mobile

    Are the phones available at the two links above 4G-compatible?
  14. Schadenfreude

    @ Lorelei & El Jeffo: Generally speaking, I said all this - and somewhat more succinctly, too.
  15. Just call it "standard English". But be careful about calling Plattdeutsch/Low German a dialect. German linguists cannot to this day agree as to whether Low German ist a dialect of High German or whether the one is merely a variation of the other (I suspect it's probably the latter). There is a similar debate concerning English and Scots. And then there's Ulster Scots, but I digress...
  16. Asked to step down after passing probezeit for CULTURE FIT

    Summing up: 1. Tie the boss/Supervisor down a lot more specifically on what he /she means by "culture fit". 2. See your works council representative immediately! 3. Get legal insurance immediately if you don't already have it! 4. Whether you have legal insurance or not, get a specialist lawyer for employment law immediately! Good luck.
