Can report the same flaws apply to ultimate too...
It's a good product, and it is getting better. I like having the CI setup itself in source control. Some of the security analysis features are pretty good. There are a few nice features where just a little more work will make them really nice.
Not perfect, but worth a look
If they're doing it properly, then the credit card numbers will be passed to a CC processor, who will return a transaction number. If they want to refund the transaction, that's what they need. The CC processor will hold that link, but there are a small number of them and they can afford to do security a lot better (and understand that they need to do it).
Likewise for repeating credit card payments, saved cards etc. done properly it will be passed to the CC processor who will return a token. That token can only be used by that merchant - so if the token does get exposed you can't use it all over the place.
Of course, no guarantees that things are done properly, and it's very easy to e.g. turn on debug logging of all inputs without remembering there are some you definitely shouldn't be logging!
My TV is relatively dumb (has Netflix but nothing else), I got a Samsung blu-ray to give me the smart functionality - a BD-H6500-ZF, bought April 2016. Same thing, they turned off my iPlayer despite me trying software updates. Samsung support said it was the BBCs fault. https://twitter.com/mrstumo/status/1192172108316581888?s=19
Ended up buying a Roku as the best of a bad bunch. Last time I buy a Samsung
I have also recently started a re-watch, and I'd agree it holds up well - far fewer jokes that now make you cringe than many other shows of the time. The first season is ok but the second is noticeably better when they've had a chance to work out what works.
We also decided to get the box set of Angel (spin off from season 3, I think) and watch them in parallel with the overlaps... Less convinced by Angel so far but it's not bad. Somewhere online there's a suggested watching order so that you don't get continuity out of order.
Our mortgage broker definitely found me a deal I wouldn't have found myself, probably saving thousands over the length of the mortgage, as well as explaining things like the way rates are calculated (e.g. your rate won't improve unless you can get your deposit above this level...).
Total cost to me? Zero! They did it based on commission from the building society (but still it was better than any rate I could find publicly). So as far as I'm concerned it was a win. The same person has also helped several friends and family too.
This was Nick at www.privatepremierfinance.co.uk - I hope the mods won't mind me posting that here.
There was a Radio 4 Moneybox episode about this a few weeks ago, should be still there in the podcast. Most accurate thing was when this was all described as making tax difficult.
It sounds like the original plans might have been useful with extra detail, but now they're watered down to uselessness someone is insisting on going on to save face... Bloody politicans
You forgot to mention, but there's no headphone jack (according to https://www.techadvisor.co.uk/new-product/mobile-phone/htc-u12-plus-3664388/ )
Shame as there does appear to be an SD card (had to look at https://www.engadget.com/2018/05/22/htc-leaks-flagship-u12-plus/?guccounter=1 to find that!)
... But in this case given how easy the exploit is, and how far removed from the intended functionality, I can't help wondering if disclosing earlier would have been better so people could avoid sending more unencrypted emails that they believed were encrypted
Jira is pretty good, and bitbucket is fine. Bamboo I've found frustrating as you can't prioritise certain builds, or trigger builds by a pull request being created. Fisheye/crucible is pretty terrible, it's very hard to get it to do anything and the UI is really confusing.
But there are very basic, popular feature requests being ignored, e.g. http://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSWSERVER-9167
I'm afraid it's all true. Nothing to do with the NHS (benefits are handled by a different government department) but yes there are countless stories of atos assessors writing stuff in reports without asking the interviewee or having any way to know.
The other bit of stupidity - this is costing more than it saves.
Someone is doing very well out of it.
This is where keepass works well. I can have a keyfile that I manually install on the devices I want to have access as a one time action (never stored in the cloud). So the file in dropbox is useless without both that key file and my password. But if I add a password on my phone it syncs to my desktop.
I agree completely - something that gives you some detail on the other end of the account before you click yes. E.g. "Please confirm you want to send money to Bodgeit and Scarper builders". If you send money via mobile phone to someone's number, you get that.
If the owner of the account doesn't match what you're expecting, it gives you a 2nd thought. And if the scammers are going as far as getting the name to match the company they're impersonating, it's an extra thing where the bank ought to pick them up on it.
