It says 'from' midnight. Is usual, as all such strikes start from 0000 Hrs.

I'm installing Linux printer drivers for a Brother laser printer. I downloaded from Brother's support site, so I don't think I'm falling for anything nasty here, but at the end of the eual/disclaimers/blah I see...

Now I know why I should have worked harder and become tycoon

Oh, wait... I just noticed the date. Will I be installing a printer driver, or will a big fist come out of the screen and thump me in the face?

Did you snap that with a Moto G camera? Can see the famous "waterpaint" effect on the pic.

Here's my contribution. I don't get it at all.

It probably means, whichever floor you are going to, before you exit the lift, press the G button and then close the door. To ensure the lift goes back to the ground floor.

Not sure why they'd want someone to do that!

The idea makes sense to me, cause I am a victim of such idiots, who close the lift door so slowly that it its left open, and then whoever is at ground floor has to climb up the stairs.

So pressing the G button and closing the lift will ensure that the door is closed properly and the lift is operational !! Kinda double check to make sure that the door is closed properly.

Well, whoever wrote that needs "Rapidex" course for sure.
However the idea is great.
