Many years ago I remember watching a Jeremy Clarkson TV show about driving around the world. He said that in Switzerland the number plate stayed with the owner for life and that you could look up their address in a public database.
And as a result meant there was little road rage or motoring trouble because you could easily go round to the car owner's house to deal with it later.
Not sure if its true or just Clarkson talking out of his arse as usual.
Who needs insecure software these days when hackers can just take your stored details from a company.
I got an email from Unifi today saying that they'd lost my details to a security breach.
One thing to bear in mind is that a lot of legacy diagnostic software doesn't work on anything other than XP. I diagnose Peugeots freelance and the best software is one that only runs on XP 32 bit.
Yes there are newer programs out there (Diagbox) but its clunky and far less user friendly than good ol Peugeot Planet.
Why be jerks about it? I'd not thought about my (probably long lost) CYOA books for years and being reminded about them in Black Mirror would have sent me to Ebay or Amazon to relive my childhood again like I do with Usborne books of the early 80s and generate them some cash on buying some new ones.
Incidentally the famous Usborne Ghosts book tie in with Inside No. 9 writers has been a big success.
You're on a hiding to nothing if you expect a company to cancel a direct debit for you. I've seen plenty of stories of utility companies and Virgin Media continue to charge when people have left them.
In fact when I moved house from one VM area to another they couldn't just change the address, they had to set up a whole new account and a new direct debit.
When the new one was set up and money debited I ended the old DD - which resulted in threatening emails from Virgin about terminating my service while under contract and to reinstate it immediately otherwise I'd be liable for penalties.
