It’s (Amazon) responsible for roughly 44¢ of every dollar Americans spend online, and it’s now mixing in retail stores.

I was looking for a 1 in 7 dollars in the world quote, but have come to the conclusion that is hearsay.

Water Cooler / Re: Domain Valuation in 2018

I agree. The key is not the number of digits, the word, but what it is worth to the buyer. 

Its difficult to get 2 people looking to buy at the same time to get competition, unless it is very special.  I have had a 4 digit .co.uk domain on ebay for £400 for 6 months, and I have 1 watcher. (its ivet).  so loads of small vet practices might be interested, and in the UK, these practices are being bought up by a few big players. So I think there is less hunger for domains at present.

I seem to remember sitting round a table in the early days, discussing this. "We" agreed the only sensible way to tax the internet was by the location of the buyer, or the delivery address for physical goods.

Seems like 17 years later the govt is catching up. Interesting article. There is still the rates advatage. I know it would screw me if I had to pay the businees rates of a physical shop.

Not cost based, but generated in the UK.  I re looked at this as a mate in construction specialises in power.

There has been little wind in the UK recently.  It shows here.

This shows the solar better although I understand it is difficult to assess, as the data is not central:

The car keeps running, with a message on the dash to say the key is missing. 
So if you drive off and the missus has they keys in her back... dont stop the car is what I learned :) 

Happened on my bike too.  But that has an easy pin number bypass.

LCOE as a measurement does not take into account some external costs, like storing solar power for cloudy days,

From the mirror report on this:

A survey carried out by cloud distributer intY has revealed that 36% of Brits believe ‘cryptocurrency’ relates to funeral finance.

The survey involved 2,000 members of the British public who were asked a set of 20 questions relating to computing and technology.

And when asked “What is the blockchain?”, 41 per cent answered that it was another name for an old-fashioned toilet pull flush.

Priceless.
