Mum doesn't like him. She would square up. She would tell Steve70nearly to sod off. She would have her say.

I'm sure danny once claimed that downloading his mp3s was better for the environment than buying records. I knew that downloading wasn't as clean as Google had told him that day, but this shows the issues on both sides.

"Is rejecting physical media and embracing streaming the answer? This is the wrong way of framing the issue, as digital media is physical media, too. Although digital audio files seem virtual, they rely on infrastructures of data storage, processing and transmission that have potentially higher greenhouse gas emissions than the petrochemical plastics used in the production of more obviously physical formats such as LPs – to stream music is to burn coal, uranium and gas.

The amount of energy required to stream an individual song or album is negligible – much less than it takes to get that same music on an LP, cassette or CD – but one-to-one comparisons miss the point. We need to understand the aggregate energy effects of billions of streamers who now expect, without a second thought, instant access to unlimited amounts of music. This culture of listening is what gives us the result that, although the US recording industry is using far less plastic, it is producing more greenhouse gas emissions.

Conservative estimates show the amount of such emissions to be 200m kilos a year after 2015, while pessimistic estimates show it to be 350m kilos a year – which is more than double the US industry’s emissions profile at the height of vinyl, cassettes or CDs. Individual digital audio files use less energy than those previous formats. Those individual gains in efficiency are outstripped by increases in overall use.

The devices required to access those infrastructures – smartphones, tablets, laptops – rely on the exploitation of natural and human resources around the world. These products then quickly succumb to fashion and obsolescence, ending up at dump sites, making further claims on other people and places. "

Seems he didn't think it through. :wanker:

How to defeat the NY Times paywall: click on the bits that show above the wall and sweep your cursor down the page. Copy and paste into a text docxument and the whole article shows up. Disadvantages are violating intellectual property rights, as well as reading the New York Times. Not to mention incurring Dannynomates' ire at knowing something he doens't.



Doesn't work for the London Times.

Ctrl-A and then copy and paste is much quicker.

A day in hospital costs £400

A day's state pension costs £20.

Every day that cunt's in hospital would pay my state pension for 20 days

I would advise one or more days in a private room to make doubly sure you've recovered. And, at least one private nurse to assist your recovery. You deserve no less. :)

The conniving old bitch in the opposite bed got given a private room this morning. :radged:

I've learned today that I'm now technically better, all readings are normal, but that I must stay in one more night for observation. I don't need observing ffs!! :angry:
