I don't really mind getting videos off the internet, so long as appropriate permission is sought and credited to the original owner. But this claiming the video as theirs is utterly wrong! I'd have thought most people would be sensible enough to realise that, but it seems I was mistaken. The stolen videos were also presented with high quality ultra negative upscaling in 5fps, complete with Bandicam watermark.
Something similar happened to my mother a few weeks or so ago when someone stole content from her business, she told me They were getting money from doing it. luckily she reported the idiot that stole her content.

If anyone wants to use my bus photos (notably those in my local (mainly the newer vehicles)) they are free to use them for personal use but they must credit me if they want to post them on the internet. If they want to edit them and then post them on the internet, they shpuld ask me.

This worthless bludger of a company spiriting off any available high quality surgical masks and gloves made by respected brands like 3M they could get their minions to lay their filthy hands on and sending them off to China while still being able to trade here with apparent impunity.
They are enemies of the state within who should be sent packing.

When you ask a fairly simple question on Farce, and you get dozens of likes, but no answer!

The 'like' notification and function has gotta be one of the most pointless features ever implemented on any social media website. It's annoying checking the notifications only to find that some stranger has done a 2 second click which has no benefit to the original poster, with no actual response.

I think today is the first day in a while in which The sAdvertiser has not mentioned the amount of cumulative days without new cases of the China virus.

I personally doubt the home detention orders will be revoked until around 2027, but it still seems unusual.

Do you really find it necessary to call it the "China virus"? Like ffs, grow a brain and realise that it could have come from anywhere. Also, "home detention" is for your own safety so you don't succumb to how horrible the virus is, and the government (both state and federal) have/are in the process of planning a way out of the restrictions. Have some patience.

Actually on-topic, what gives me the s&#t's is people who decide to not follow the 1.5m spacing. As someone who has an immuno-compromised family member, shopping is just the best thing in the world :roll:

People that are able to stay home that complain about not being allowed to do stuff like go fishing or go to the pub, be grateful that you can still leave to get food or go to work and have water you can drink. There are people that don't have any of it at all, so don't take it for granted.

Probably because there was a new case recorded on the 7th, so it would have been 0 days?

I can't believe I have to use this guideline in the context of a virus, but here we are.

Please refer to the virus as the coronavirus or Covid-19. Xenophobia is unhelpful to anyone at this time, or indeed any time. And for the record, South Australia's restrictions haven't been as far reaching as other states, let alone other countries, so to call it home detention is a bit of a stretch.

Other drivers who seriously don't secure their loads, yesterday when I pulled up to the traffic lights at a busy intersection (was the first in line) I saw a bunch of these plastic strips laying across the road. I was a bit concerned if I run over them it may possibly do some damage to my car so I got out when it was safe to do so and moved them to the sidewalk, there was a bunch of them just laying there on the road. Better to have moved them off the road instead of leaving them there.

When a website makes you disable Adblock to view their content and makes you sit through two video advertisements and shows the same advertisement both times.

I find it disappointing that big multimedia companies that actually would have the money still make you do that. 9Now, I want to watch a little Pokemon, not 4 repeats of a Sonic The Disappointment Movie trailer. Worse still are the websites that say they need the money because they are small, and when you do disable Adblocker, all hell breaks loose. Ads every 2 minutes, ads everywhere (for inappropriate... stuff) and to top it off, virus links hidden in an element somewhere.

I have a double-whammy of uBlock Origin & NoScript running on my browser of choice (presently SeaMonkey). uBlock deals with all the advertisements, trackers, social media buttons etc. It can also be used to deal with irritating nonsense like pop-ups and Google's banners claiming my browser will soon be unsupported (I turned off the Firefox compatibility advertisement in the browser).

NoScript handles anything else that uBlock doesn't catch. It filters scripts by the URL where they originate. Some sites have dozens of different pages running BS in the background. Best thing is, this bypasses the anti-adblocker crap as that stuff is usually a script somewhere in the website :mrgreen: So while you might have to read plain text with the formatting in an absolute jumble, you can at least read it.

If he were to come onto this forum and make those remarks, yes I would. To the best of my knowledge though, he is not a member of this forum.

Facebook is a major billion dollar technology / social media giant and for some reason they can't QA test stuff properly, how on earth is the post scheduling feature beyond broken across multiple web browsers? Why am I only being given the option when I want to schedule something is to turn it into an event or job offer? Also why on earth do they insist on changing features no one asked for? Once a upon a time when post scheduling worked, I could easily schedule my post in the very same post I was creating, now I need to go through 5 different pages if I want to create a scheduled post. That's just bad user design and is asking for content creators to turn off from your product or service.

For some reason the major technology giants are very good at having front facing features that work well then out of the blue they decide it's better to then hide them behind all these pages, Youtube is just as guilty as well.

Looks like just about everyone has forgotten about social distancing and is acting as if the restrictions are no big deal, if wave 2 happens & your back in lockdown, you've only got yourselves to blame.

British railway worker dies of COVID-19 after being spat on

In a tragic reminder of the dangers of spitting and coughing on others during this pandemic, a railway ticket office worker in the UK has died of coronavirus after being spat at while on duty.

Belly Mujinga, 47, was on the concourse of London's Victoria station in March when a member of the public who said he had COVID-19 spat and coughed at her and a colleague. Within days of the assault, both women fell ill with the virus.

Ms Mujinga, who had underlying respiratory problems, was admitted to Barnet Hospital and put on a ventilator but died on April 5, said her trade union, the Transport Salaried Staffs Association.

The union has reported the incident, and British Transport Police have launched an investigation.

That is just rude. That was extremely rude to spit in public and spit at a person. To top it all off, you basically caused their death. Well done, well done to get basically 100% of the public's shame on you. Shame on you, and that's just for behaving that way. :x

I'm annoyed that I've heard that there's been a confirmed case of COVID-19 at a major fast food giant near me but when I try to look for sources or releases to back that up I can't find anything. Whether it's a false report or something I'm not really sure but during this time I'd rather know what's going on then not hear anything at all.

Oddly enough the same fast food giant I've heard has a case in Melbourne I believe and that story got picked up like there's no tomorrow but yet for some reason, we also had a case that's reported to be positive up here and.... silence. I've only heard of the local case because I was listening to the radio and they mentioned it. The local papers and other media giants hasn't bothered to report it. Not even a PR release from the restaurant giant itself.

I haven't been there recently but I believe if anyone has been there recently, they absolutely have a right to know what's going on, the silence isn't helping anything and it's complete crap for whatever reason it isn't being further reported on.

I already have a distaste for the MSM and this further fills it.

I also heard somewhere that a delivery driver from said company had also tested positive and apparently twelve stores had to (temporarily) close......
