      Shido = penalty

      Yay, something I can answer!

      Shido is a penalty awarded if someone slightly breaks the rules in a Judo match.

      (Such as having your arm all around their neck - headlock style or dropping to your knees for a throw). Think it's minus 3 points? It has been a while...

        I believe the same phrase was used for Steven "tubby" Segal...

          He's a seventh or eighth Dan in hapkido, maybe even higher by now.

          Not someone to piss off, even if he is tubby.....

    we are aware that an unauthorised person has illegally gained access ... despite the system being PCI compliant.

    Remember, PCI Isn't strictly about keeping credit card details safe: It's about allowing the credit card companies to pass the blame onto you.

    association is grappling with an information breach

    I see what you did there.

    Seriously though out of all the possible people to rob I would have drawn the line somewhere before "people who know how to choke you to death in three seconds without leaving obvious marks".

      Well to death would take a little bit longer than three seconds but I was thinking the same thing. A guy who had a black belt in various -istu's once told me you'll never see a group of more polite and considerate drunk guys than at their annual local governing body bash because you don't want to start a fight there accidentally or otherwise. The place also took the bouncers off for the night too for some reason :P
