This seems to be a common thing with IoT devices, the need to 'phone home' all the time. Where is the 'smart house' that was described decades ago which manages itself without having to report everything back to a central server?
Oh yes of course, if you don't collect reams of your customers data you can't monetise it... surveillance capitalism at work!
Now just fuck off! Glad you failed and boo hoo to the mugs who spent money on a stupid piece of technology.
We, ie the public, are not their customers, we are their product, therefore if we get harmed they don't give a shit.
However you were correct, none of their customers were harmed - their customers are the banks and financial businesses that use their credit check services.
"You omitted to add that the Police involved had genuine reasons to suspect he was wearing a suicide vest; that they were on high alert after several suicide bombings, and he RAN when approached."
HE WAS NOT CHALLENGED BY POLICE, HE RAN BECAUSE THE TRAIN WAS IN THE STATION AND HE WANTED TO CATCH IT!!
It was a case of mistaken identity and in the paranoia of that time no checks were made and they executed him once he was on the tube train. All the suspicious behaviours attitude to him by the police (eg getting off a bus to go into a tube station and then getting on a different bus because the tube station was closed) were later shown to be perfectly reasonable behaviour.
Try reading the bloody facts before spouting nonsense.
Back in 1981, I was studying astrophysics at Queen Mary College and was editor of the in-house magazine called "h-bar by two". We had Patrick Moore as a guest lecturer for the introductory Astronomy course and on this occasion he'd just got back fro Pasadena from covering the Saturn fly by. Being a cheeky scrote I asked him if he'd write something for my magazine about the new discoveries. His response was "Find me an office, a typewriter and a cup of coffee - I've got an hour to spare before the lecture". Lo and behold 45 mins later he handed me 5 sheets of double-spaced A4 with a superb summary of what had happened. I asked him to autograph it and I still have it almost 40 years later :) Great bloke and a great time to be in astronomy!
Gabrielle Drake never wore a string vest - those were the uniforms for the Skydiver submarine and ALL the female operatives had a vest underneath. Purple wigs and silver mini-skirts were Moonbase uniforms. The future Mrs Michael Caine was also a Moonbase operative in a purple wig.
However, Gabrielle Drake in the movie Au Pair Girls... now you are talking.. .well drooling actually!
The old "Scunthorpe" problem , or in France the Marseille problem and in the US the Massachusetts problem!
I once had to write a profanity filter for a company and spent ages persuading them NOT to profanity check addresses otherwise anyone who lived on Dick Turpin Lane or wanted to find the Two Cocks pub would disapointed!
Its not bad, the normal articles have their own boxes.
You are still only using at most 2/3rds of the width of my desktop screen - I guess the side columns are where you will put adverts.
There does seem to be a disconnect between the numbe rof articles above the first row of imaged articles - looks to be about 1.5 box widths of whitespace on the right of the last box in the second row.
Its a redesign I can live with.
If the processes they have constructed work with Fax machines, what is the problem? just because they aren't shiny new tech doesn't make it bad. If the process works, then be very careful when replacing it with shiny new bollocks because as we all know quite often it can end up as a retrograde step...
If the process is faulty, then replacing the fax machines won't necessarily fix the process.
There is not a STEM skills shortage - there is a shortage of decently paid STEM careeer opportunities! Fucking pay a decent salary and there won't be a fucking shortage of employees! Pay the risable and pathetic amounts I see from recruiters all fucking day long and you will get numpties and nobodies!
Oh and while I'm at it, make the qualifications and experience required for jobs sensible rather than ask for 5 years experience in a technology that only existed for 3 years!
Fuckwits the lot of them!!!!
(I need beer, today is going down the tubes rapidly!!!)
