ChuckleChappyBirthday 3 points submitted 10 days agoWere either of the SIM cards very old, by chance? This is incredibly odd behavior for a mobile device. A SIM card should do nothing more than provide authentication information for connecting to a network.Several years ago, I was having issues sending/receiving MMS and maybe had issues with calls and 3G (this was pre 4G). I contacted T Mobile, and they said my old SIM card that I got with a dumb phone several years prior was the issue, even though I used this SIM with my smartphone for months without issues up until then.

Predictably, labor groups cheered while industry spokesmen declared that economic collapse was imminent. The truth, despite the hyperventilation, is that the consequences of this announcement which is more about prosecutorial strategy than any actual change in the law are pretty limited.

In my view, a decline in interest in new music tends to occur in the late 20s and correlates with getting into serious relationships and career commitments. This is largely due to dwindling free time, a shift in priorities of the average music fan, and being in a less new music friendly environment. When you get to what is left of your free time at the end of the day, you generally look to something relaxing or familiar.

Although most current vertical farming operations have chosen to specialise in cash crops consisting of leafy green vegetables (easy to grow and much in demand), in the near future, consumers are likely to ask for a wider variety of vegetables and fruits grown without pesticides, herbicides and other harmful chemical contaminants.

Some form of vertical farming now exists in Japan, Korea, Singapore, the United States, and Canada.

Aversives may appear to be effective initially, but often dogs start habituating to them if used a lot. This may cause the owner to want to use stronger and stronger aversives to obtain results which may lead to a spiral often bordering the thin abuse line.

Note: Why doesn’t UK GDP (35 Tescos) equal the private sector (28 Tescos) plus public spending (15 Tescos)? Mainly because a large part of public spending is transfer payments (pensions and benefits and the like), that is, cash simply taken from one person and given to another. This is not part of GDP. So some of the private sector output is counted again in public spending when the money taken in tax is paid out in pensions etc..
