Re: Life of Pi

I recently bought a new Roon End Point, the Metrum Acoustics Ambre. It's based upon a Pi, with additional boards containing twin clocks and a toroidal power supply. It outputs to a variety of common formats, as well as I2S. An additional I2S module can be bought which replaces the USB board in any M...

Re: Defending your home.

Mr. Hincapie. I'm bowing out of this one and probably all others. If you can't see why nor understand what I've written, only ad hominem prevents me telling you what I really feel. Over and out. Aah, you were talking about me. That's OK. I don't make any apologies for my views, but I am not an unca...

That's good. However, the responses and posts from some of our members were; to my mind; appalling. Not to be forgotten.
Oh really? I haven't read anything of the kind. Who and what do you disagree with?

I trust the judicial process to come up with the right answer.

Re: Defending your home.

IF the burglar was murdered, not killed in self-defence, then murder is murder, regardless of who it is. I care about the law. As the law stands, yes, you're right. In my view, Manslaughter would have been a more appropriate charge on the basis that murder requires mens rea; I doubt he had formed t...

Re: Defending your home.

Due process must be followed. The law must be applied in all cases. If the homeowner acted purely in self-defence then he will not be convicted of murder. But if, for example, he chased after the burglar out of revenge then he will be convicted of murder - because that is, murder. We know very litt...

Re: Defending your home.

You aren't seriously defending a burglar are you? Of course not. I'm defending the law. What precisely is it you're defending? I just want to make sure I understand where you are coming from. Certain US States have the 'Make my day' law, which is a no retreat principle on your own property. You cou...

wonderful with wife and kids, just breaks in to oap's house in the early hours of the morning, threatens householder with screwdriver and has previous - sorry heard this sort of shit before.
