You could look at Avalonia. Not used it but it looks like a possible cross-platform substitute. If you're a heavy user of toolkits like DevExpress, then maybe they would not be compatible, though.

There can be various benefits/tax incentives available for companies with a small number of employees.
It can make sense, if you have say 2,000 employees, to divide these up into 3 smaller companies, which can then each take advantage of these benefits.
No doubt making these on-paper companies be overseas has other benefits, perhaps regarding tax and/or employment law.
Note - 'benefit' as used above should not be interpreted as benefit for the worker.
At the time a lot of this was happening, the Post Office was in the process of being 'privatised'. I think at one reason for the denial that there were any problems, was to avoid screwing up the sale.
Not saying that's a good reason, just that it may have been a reason.
Indeed. In the web world, the browser can check that the ssl certificate from a site does at least match the web site domain.
Forcing an app (or extension) to be signed really just tells you the dev got a certificate. Without some method to validate that the certificate belongs to the purported publisher, it's not really very useful.
This idea of not knowing what your directs reports are up to, was part of what Sarbanes-Oxley (in the US) was designed to address. The concept is that you (as a director/manager) are responsible for your direct reports and ought to know, and also have controls in place to ensure that you do. ISTR that this was one of the results of Enron's failure, mentioned above.
I've broken the law at least twice;
at home for providing a hacking tool,
Depending on where 'home ' is. Is providing a hacking tool illegal in Israel?
and two, the law of the targets home state.
Surely the person you sold the tool to has broken the law in the target state, not you?
Both parties here seem equally obnoxious, to me.
Yes, a bit of a double whammy. Unless you get a very privileged account, you can't encrypt everything, including backups, so grab a load of data as a plan B. It also feels like a more sophisticated attack. Surely it would take a bit more time on the target network, to get access to and find some juicy data? Maybe this step can also be automated?
Some interesting thoughts, but let's get real. This discussion is about the problem of estimating range between two phones. In a tube train, the phone might be within 2 metres of up to 20 others. If the phone is going to be performing this 'complex analysis' measuring response times and sending audio 'pings' to figure out the distance between itself and these multiple other phones, it won't actually be much use for anything else...
They were also trying to gear up for privatising the business at the time. Probably hard to do if you have to admit that all the branch accounts are in doubt due to a faulty computer system.
Certainly various people knew this, as I think I recall reports of errors at the branch being 'corrected' by transactions entered at head office.
The individual is not (necessarily) a user of Facebook so there is no way that the data is collected as an essential part of any service provided to the individual.
The 'service' is not being provided to the individual, it's being provided to advertisers.
Additionally at least one has detection of repeated transactions per ip address. Causes problems if people in an office are on one shared external ip, and many of those people try to buy something at the same time.
IIRC this protection (and others like disallow a card issued in one country from being used from an IP apparently in a different country) can be turned of by request of the website owner.
I think what he meant is that for the import side, we can charge whatever tarriff we want, so if we have no tarrifs then we have no processing of imports to do. Exports are really the responsibility of the receiving country so again no need for the UK to do anything.
This would be to ignore export controls we might enforce on weapons etc, that would still need handling, although there might not need to be much or any chnage here. It would also suggest that people can bring in rabid animals, nuclear material, drugs and so....
