Why on Earth does the 5p for carrier bags go to charity, wouldn't it going to the NHS be better?

The money must be worth millions a day, I know it's not £350m/week, but still plenty to pay more staff or re-open a few wards.

Using glue

8Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I've had issues with bed adhesion and got myself some of Elmer's disappearing purple stick, but while lots of guides suggest using glue, none of them say exactly how. Obviously you spread it out across the bed, some suggest using a cloth to get a good spread, but when do you do this? While the bed is cold, or after it's reached the correct temperature? Or do you print without heating the bed at all? Do you turn it down (or up) a few degrees?

If it helps, I'm printing using a WANHAO Duplicator i3 using PLA, the bed is normally 60°c and the print 200°c.

Angular "qualification"?

2Submitted by Izwe - View comments

Heyo webdevs. I'm in the market for a new job and although I know & use Angular (2) on my own personal websites/projects I have no professional experience and this appears to be hindering me job-wise. Everyone wants Angular/React/Vue, but as I can't say "I did Angular at [some previous job]" they hire the guy who can say that instead.

So my question is, is there some kind of "qualification" I can get, or course I can do to "prove" I'm capable of developing with Angular (or React, or Vue, I'm not fussy)?

iConnectHue-like app for Android?

2Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I hear this app recommended aaaallll the time on here, yet without a iDevice that advice is useless.

What options do Android, or even Windows users have to get that same kind of power?

Any advice/suggestions?

Can you recommend any books along the lines of "My Dad is a girl"?

9Submitted by Izwe - View comments

My wife and I have got/are getting a few books for our youngest kids (7 & 9) to read to help them understand my transition. We were recommended "My Dad wears pirate shoes" and it's the most transphobic book I've ever read (it's going back for a refund, my eldest son (16) wanted to burn it with a flame-thrower after reading it, lol).

Are there any bad picture of Spaceship Earth?

It seems no matter what the conditions, angle, camera or weather you can't take a bad photo of the golf ball.

Edit: Pictures*

WYR be the opposite sex for 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week, 1 month, or 1 year?

You're fully functional in every way. If you are currently pregnant then that will get paused until you change back, if you get pregnant then unless you can go full term then the foetus will cease to exist when you change back.

Is there an Alexa wiki?

4Submitted by Izwe - View comments

Googling "alexa wiki" brings up results about getting your Echo to read articles from wikipedia, not helpful. A wiki that details all skills, features, commands, etc. would be grand.

[UK] Are there any RFID door locks which also have key operation?

1Submitted by Izwe - View comments

I'm struggling to find a smart multi-point door lock (e.g. the Yale Conexis L1 which also has a key hole for when the mains power fails. Ideally I'd like to use my own RFID tags (coughDisney MagicBandscough), but that's not a deal-breaker.

Anyone know of such a device?
