+Daniel Higgins so what? Why come to my sharing of the article to complain about the content on Medium? Why not complain to the author of the piece or Medium directly? I really don't care to know about your disapproval of the piece.

A nice little write up from Kristy about Friday's first Vermillion Nights get together. 
Hello, I am back with more tales of local shenanigans in Norn Iron and would like to recommend a new live music night in Lisburn's most rocking eaterie - Café Vermillion. Friday 24th was the inaugural Vermillion Nights live...

Well you can always come to the one after. I think someone you know is coming down, Andy John Bradford. I think he saw your post and got in contact with us.

It remains to be seen how well a $4 smartphone will function. The Freedom 251 may seem extremely underpowered if you're used to flagship performance devices, but consider this: It has better specs than even the original iPhone when it was released nine years ago, and that was originally sold for $599.
Buyers will soon find out how good a $4 smartphone really is.

I'm guessing the skin comes with bloat that helps them offset the money they are losing.

This is how I see it. We had a referendum. Some of us voted one way and some the other. We have a result. Like it or not we have to accept it and move on. It is what happens in a democratic process.

But wait. You were lied to. By both sides. Lie after lie came out of their mouths and you are outraged. Facts, real facts were hidden from you. The true cost of your decision was kept secret.

Well here is the thing. Politicians lie. They do so every election. Did you think this time was going to be any different? When Nick and Dave formed a joint government did they do what they said they were going to do? Nope. When their marriage broke up and Dave kept the house with his promises did he deliver on what he said he would? No he did not. It is so much worse. When Tony "The War Criminal" Blair first took over the house with promises of a New Britain how long did it take him to go back on almost everything? Do you see what I am saying?

We have made our beds. Agree or disagree with the result it is done. The sooner we accept it and adapt with the changes ahead the better.

And please can we try and be civil about it.

Don't know why Wales are celebrating so much. It was a Northern Ireland player that scored.
 
So is this when we should start an online petition to have a rematch?

My 3rd edition 40k arrived for me today. Why did GW have to go and ruin this fantastic game. There was no need to update it. This is perfection.

Without a doubt the best edition. It is really nice to have a copy again. Next stop the codex books.

Its own phone would allow Google to control the software, securing the future of services such as the Google search engine and Google Play app store that run on it.

Except that Google already controls the software of Nexus devices. Come on, really.
Google is planning a shake-up of the smartphone market by releasing its own handset, a move that would tighten its grip on mobile software and see it compete directly with the iPhone.

Did you guys read the article?

Sure it's pretty crap but it's really talking about the manufacture side of things

I'm trying to stay away from sharing articles on the fallout of what just happened. This one was just too good to pass up.

Have you ever left the house and been struck down with the worry that you left your fridge light on? If so this is the +Kickstarter​ for you.

(please note that you cannot pledge to get the actual product. Yet I'm sure they will do another campaign after they build it and get more money out of you.)
Fridgeye is a beautiful light sensor for your refrigerator. Check your fridge light status from all over the world.

Great for all my wargaming needs. The first time you place an order online may be a bit strange, but once you know how they work your mind will be at ease. Good prices, great deals. Highly recommended.

Great models, such a shame GW has stopped giving the stores the support they need to run properly.

There is no finer place to get your dinner than Brads. I could happily eat from them every night. Great food, great staff. What more could you want?
