Is this Westminster just being Tory or is it Wales bashing?

I suspect that if you look at all (! There aren’t many, if any, left) UK steel works they all have less spent on them by the Govt. than similar plant in other countries…

Temperature is not scalar

Messers Rankine, Kelvin and even Fahrenheit would beg to differ… Temperature is scalar, however it’s effects on living things is generally not mostly owing to chemistry.

The claim that a 40° C jump in Sub-Zero temperatures is tolerable, but wouldn’t be in the UK or whatever they’re saying in this article… That’s nonsense

Au contraire my dear fellow. For a human, the article is entirely correct. A rise of 40° C in a particularly cold place is indeed tolerable for a human. A similar rise in, say, the UK today would put the temperature at 52° C - hotter than Death Valley on a well above average day and considerably less tolerable.

Of course a single recorded rise in temperature isn’t a good indication of climate…

You can’t - I think it’s a lemmy/feature of federation thing.

Use the search function for communities, posts or whatever.

I sit corrected.

I agree, it would be good to be able to browse all communities on an instance.

So it begins. The defangng of Welsh Labour by the Westminster elite…

BenM2023,
@BenM2023@lemmy.world avatar

Well I guess so, but they are still further left than the Starmfurher… Which is a plus.

So Plaid will team up with whom? Showing their true colours… Nice shade of blue that Ddraig goch!

BenM2023,
@BenM2023@lemmy.world avatar

The Welsh rosette is rather less blue than the English one… I remember when red and blue were distinct and different.

I suspect that many Welsh men who vote blue to get rid of “Dripford” would be horrified if their local authority were to go blue. Which is a distinct possibility if the anti-Tory vote is split.

I am broadly in favour of independence, however not on the terms currently apparently promoted by Plaid - nationalism has limited use in the world today unless you are big enough and ugly enough to ignore what others might think.

Whatever the ultimate destiny of Wales, it won’t be a success if we are lead by people blaming the current situation entirely on Westminster and refusing to engage with the larger nation next door.

There seems to be a tendency, here in the Valleys as well as in Wales at large, to abdicate “personal” responsibility - everything is someone else’s problem (Westminster, local authority, police whoever can be conveniently blamed but never, ever, the locals or their actions) sadly, in the political arena, this plays right into the Tory playbook - they are masters of divide and conquer, having spent much of history doing just that.

Yup. The curse of the ‘fair to middling’… Too well off for social benefits too poor to be able to ignore money…

Hi it’s your long lost cousin Scratchy Bottom (dry valley west of lulworth cove) Our grandpa still lives in Shaggs (hamlet north of Lulworth) but grandma is in Shitterton (hamlet next to Bere Regis) …

BenM2023,
@BenM2023@lemmy.world avatar

Yup.

Boing will only fix it when the cost of compo for px deaths and FAA penalties looks like exceeding the cost of recalling/fixing during scheduled maintenance for all the engines…

BenM2023,
@BenM2023@lemmy.world avatar

Au contraire…

They want to lose them so that the Starmfurher has to do unpopular things to counter all the seeds of disaster already sown, so that in 5 years time the Tories will be back in for the foreseeable future. You read it here first.

If it was an SSD… Its possible you have an SSD that claims to be say 256Gb but actually has a 32Gb chip inside (or smaller) that lies about how big it is and just wraps the writes so they complete… However the format is broken, as is the drive.

Just updating now…

Eta:

No wait - that’s an older version. I can say it seems to be 1.43 that has the issue - not noticed it before.

BenM2023, (edited )
@BenM2023@lemmy.world avatar

OK. Version 1.44.0

Managed to make it glitch - it’s not easy! And the original issue was happening much more.

If you flick a comment thread up and down, sometimes on reply will get rendered twice… And go away when you touch the screen

That’s weird… It copied my post into my reply… Guess that’s a feature!

It’s hard because it is a dynamic effect… Perhaps a screen recording might do it.

BenM2023,
@BenM2023@lemmy.world avatar

Well it was installed from the play store… So it might be a pwa but I don’t think so… Nothing indicates it is anything other than a native Android app.

Or is that a whooshing noise in my ears?

BenM2023,
@BenM2023@lemmy.world avatar

I think I have a screen recording showing it. What host do people use for gifs?

BenM2023,
@BenM2023@lemmy.world avatar

It appears I can upload it to imgur but it does involve a lot of dark muttering (sorry old guy here…) it’s the first few seconds of the screen recording you are interested in - the glitch only happened once but I scrolled a bit more to see if it would do it again.

Linky

BenM2023,
@BenM2023@lemmy.world avatar

Yup. Never loses place at all

Here is a better screen capture that shows it happening… Its really not all threads that show the behaviour and manifestations don’t seem to be related to the number of posts in the thread.

BenM2023,

And another thing… It appears to be drawing the post about to scroll on to the screen at the bottom over the top of the one scrolling off at the top.

Phone is a Huawei P20 Pro running emui 12 if that makes any difference
