"You even have someone as despicable as hitler, who didn't sink to using chemical weapons".

You have to wonder where they get these guys. It would be laughable but for the prospect of a russia-us war.

Interesting article on the use of big data modelling for political propaganda in addition to how it can be used to impact on human psyche etc.

A bit nerdy in places mind but very interesting / eye opening.

The world has gone mad.

Why did they offer the odds in the first place??

All seems a bit ludicrous.

Saw this today...

Interesting venture(nothing to do with me!) which deserves some publicity I guess!

(Haven't seen it anywhere else)

General discussion / The KKK

Surprised not to see a thread on this...

Sinister developments in east belfast with this flag going up. I wonder who's behind it.

Police talked to locals first then removed the flag. I don't really understand why they didn't just drag the flag down and then talk?

It seems certain elements in east belfast are very happy to let "ethnic minorities" know they're not welcome there.

Hurling Discussion / Leinster minor c'ship
« on: June 14, 2011, 12:38:16 PM »
I caught a wee bit of this on TG4 last night - what is the format of it? Is it round-robin to a point and then knock-out?

Wexford looked to have a lot of speed in their team and were murdering Kilkenny for a while but were lucky in the end.

Who's the CHF dublin have? Does he play senior? I thought it was Liam Rushe?

GAA Discussion / All Ireland MFC 2011
« on: May 23, 2011, 08:59:25 PM »
Didn't see a thread for this...

Tipp beat Kerry

Fermanagh beat Derry

Antrim beat Donegal

Year of the underdog so far!

(Incidentally when was the last time Fermanagh won a minor game?)

GAA Discussion / Dual All Ireland club winners
« on: February 20, 2011, 11:59:49 AM »
Alan Kerins could potentially win a hurling All Ireland club this year to go with his football one with Salthill.

Anyone know if anyone out there has both AI club medals? I'd imagine so but can't think of who.

General discussion / Web-site development
« on: December 08, 2010, 11:33:23 PM »
Anyone on here develop web-sites using wordpress?

I've volunteered to help on a site and it's created using this so it's the boundaries I have to work within.

So here's the problem(s)/questions(s):
-I'm looking at creating  a gallery and potentially a slideshow.(I have a gallery no problems)
- I have admin GUI access but no access to UNIX box.

To create a slideshow I would need to add a wordpress plugin (WP photoshow I think it's called) so a few questions on this...
- I can add the plugin via the admin GUI - is this safe? What will this do in the background ?? Will it just get a tarball and untar etc on the machine ready to use??
- Anyone any examples of wordpress slideshows?

Any advice on the above would be appreciated. It's not my site however I'm helping out and would like to add a few features which people less computer savvy wouldn't be able to. I'd be happy enough hacking round were it my own site but as it's not my site I'm kind of limited in that regard...

Any help appreciated.

GAA Discussion / Down's turnaround
« on: August 30, 2010, 12:13:25 PM »
Last year Down would have been considered a mediocre enough team and this year they may well win the AI.

How have they turned it round? Is it simply Martin Clarke's return? James McCartan's management skills?

Hard to see exactly what the secret is as Clarke aside it's a very similar bunch of players but obviously something is being done right.

GAA Discussion / Full houses
« on: August 08, 2010, 03:19:14 PM »
How many full houses have their been in the c'ship this year? Bound to be the lowest ever.

AISF today and doesn't even look like the upper decks have been opened.

Were the munster hurling or the ulster football sellouts?
