I think we should get BitCoins here on DC - Seeing as we can mine collectively - Would be cool to see how much got generated each month for DC - And seeing as you can trade them for real services and money, it could be a fun thing to do.

I know I would personally donate all my idle CPU to mining bitcoins for DC smiley

https://bitmarket.eu/ <---- Trading for real money, seems possible, and seems to have an active amount of buyers/sellers - If DC just undercuts everyone selling...its a good earner lol

**edit**

For those of you who have DC open when your PC is on (Tab always open) - What real difference would it be to have one extra page dedicated to doing this? (Asides from the extra bit of noise coming from your computer due to the fans going crazy lol)

I generally browse around 75%

Obviously the answer is to get a screen that's 33% larger.

Hmm...so 47"?

I would probably still use the same zoom level though haha

This is how I know I belong to DC.  If you find this stuff interesting...yes, this is your place.


I can already see my friends giving me the "You have waaaaay too much time..." look.

Good stuff!!

Bloody brilliant aint it haha

Hmm, might be something to do with my zoom settings, I dont have the sites viewed at 100%, I generally browse around 75% - Might be something about the CSS of SMF that doesn't like it lol

btw...that website is a marketing ploy...

They do nothing but promote another website, which actually sells website hosting and such...

Very clever technique, and also rather amusing smiley

1393  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Get Britain Working (But we won't pay you...) on: February 22, 2012, 05:19:12 PM
Well, slave labor has now become a big thing in the UK, with the Job Center's forcing people to work low-end jobs under threat of losing their benefits, it has started to beg the question...'Is this even legal'

They are calling this new scheme "Get Britain Working" and state that its 'Voluntary' yet...if you refuse, you can be deducted money or even have your benefits stopped completely...

Now, for me, this is beyond stupid...they claim this is for work experience because apparently, people on benefits have no experience in anything whatsoever.  Now, I can't speak for everybody...but while I have found myself unemployed for any reason, I knew full well that it was not due to me lacking the knowledge...It was actually because there are currently around 22 people applying for every job in the UK...

During this time, I found myself having to claim benefits in order to survive (A man's gotta eat!).  Constantly, while registering for benefits, the staff at the Job Center's look down their noses at you, and try everything to deduct how much you are given per week (which is actually less than £55/week for someone my age) - The money you get, really makes life very difficult when you have to run a house, and constantly having people look down on you and belittling you, and being called a "Scrounge" or a "Sponge"

Being on benefits is depressing enough without having the above happen, and some of my friends have been physically laughed at by staff because they wanted a certain job.  I myself also got very angry at members of staff when I was asked to remove my hood.  My face could be seen clearly and I had JUST come in from the rain, however, the lady sitting next to me, was wearing a Burkah...you know...those things that cover a persons entire face, and to be perfectly honest...gives you no indication of if that person is actually female, or carrying a weapon...Now...thats another point entirely...however it ties in with what I am getting at...which is, Job Center staff thing they are gods gift and that they are better than everybody...they also act like your benefits are paid directly out of their own bank accounts (opposed to the tax that they would have to pay, regardless of my situation) - Personally I found the whole ordeal of going to the Job Center (Even if it was only once a fortnight) very daunting and depressing, because I knew full well, the entire process would leave me feeling twice as down about not being in work, as before I went.

The Job Center's themselves are very horrible places to be...people crammed in to small areas purely so you could be paid a small amount of money every 2 weeks, so you can buy the very basic items you need for survival (Food and Shelter)

I'm digressing a little bit here, so I will move back to my main point...

Why do the government think it is even close to a good idea, to force people into unpaid, full time work?  These multi-national companies who are making tens of millions in profits PER DAY are getting staff for nothing...instead of actually needing to post PAYING jobs on the market (Really...If you ran a multi-national and the government said you can have as many staff as you want, for free, would you say no?) - The main problem is, that a whole lot of these people are way over qualified to be stocking shelves, and, because of this, do NOT want to be put in that situation, which inevitably means, they do not want to be there...making for a very depressing workplace, and they will probably end up losing their 'job' because of this, which also means they will have their benefits stopped, and have to basically live on the streets...all because of some stupid new 'scheme'

Seems to be a total catch-22 to me...Work Experience Placements should be personalized for every person who is forced to do it...those who want to end up in job X, should be asked if they would like to go do a work trial in a company who actually DOES that...rather than somebody who wants to work in law enforcement, or maybe even wants to become an artist; being forced to work in a supermarket, stocking shelves...

Very counter productive, very stupid...and I am pretty sure this is actually slave labor (Work for free or you won't be eating tonight)

Anyway...I know this issue is not the typical type for DonationCoder, however, I know no other forum where I will get REAL responses from the public about such a touchy subject

But what's the purpose of the information, if not to use it?

Good point...what happens if you find that ads generate 2x the amount that Donations do?
