  1. This is superb. Many thanks for posting.
  2. Yeah, he thinks he's a penguin!
  3. A polar bear in Antarctica? Must be on holiday!
  4. AWS, or any other cloud service is not a panacea. It's good for some things, and not so good for others. If you want full control over your enterprise IT you don't put it on AWS, Azure, etc. I am also not sure what is meant by 'safe' in this context. It could mean many things.
  5. Wait, I think I got confused on what I was voting for?
  6. I like this a lot. Perhaps you should expand this to other spelling and grammar errors. Maybe that would be a little unfair to those who are not native English speakers though? Also, we all suffer from typing on phones (with auto-correct that is often auto-mistake) and limited time to proofread. Maybe limit this to just repeat offenders? So perhaps you can also track: Misuse of to and too Incorrect use of the word literally. As in, "my head literally exploded when I read that tweet." Err, actually I think you'll find it didn't. Incorrect use of the apostrophe, specifically for plurals where it is not required. Often known as the greengrocer's apostrophe. Apple's £1 a kilo. FFS! Using your when you're is what is meant. You can be our very own forum grammar police. Nice one. Also, how could I resist a music maestro from Lord Rockingham's XI. There's a moose loose about this hoose.
  7. It's a browser drop down list in alphabetical order. That's not being biased! Not everything is a conspiracy against XRP.
  8. $2.50 I spent the rest of my savings on whores and whiskey.

    London meetup

    I'm up for this. I can't do Thursday or Friday evenings but am usually free other times. Anywhere central London is OK as will be coming in from SW suburbs. Jerusalem Tavern would be great. Not sure if the Easter break is an issue for some people but how about next week?
  10. Enviable causes for sure. However I can guarantee that donating to schools will mean a lot less waste than attempting to feed the starving. Which starving people do you want to help? African? Good luck keeping the money out of the dictators and corrupt government official's pockets. Which diseases do you want to cure? There are a lot of them. Which is the most worthy? Good luck trying go get agreement on where to start. Sorry, not trying to target you specifically but all the money in the world is nowhere near enough to solve all the problems in the world. It's not Ripples's business to attempt to do so either. They have done a great thing.
  11. That all depends where you are in the world. It seems not all exchanges accept customers from all countries or regions. I am in the UK. I have used both Bitstamp and Gatehub which have XRP to Euro and USD pairings. So you can sell to Euro or USD and then transfer to your bank. I think Kraken also has XRP to fiat currency pairings. The Ripple website has a How To Buy section. Basically, register on the exchanges mentioned there and you should be OK for both buys and sells. Usual advice is do not store your XRP/private keys on the exchange.
