A power cycle certainly didn't work for me this morning...
Curiously, I was apparently connected to 3 now and then, but there was nothing beyond that.

Totally off topic, another Canadian bank (ANC) keeps sending account info to one of my gmail addresses. Clearly there's no verification going on there. Additionally, I've tried to get them to stop, but any email I send seems to go unnoticed.
Sadly, the account owner keeps going overdrawn, and it's not a lovely thing to see.
Well indeed. They didn't think it would happen, so when it did it all went pear shaped. But hey, it's okay now, because with the patch:
"There are no known or envisioned failure conditions where MCAS will provide multiple inputs."
*envisioned* - not *possible*, but *envisioned*. I can see a difference.
Yes, there's nothing illegal about watching the video. That's why people are being told to report it if they see it. Possessing or distributing are quite different.
Okay, I understand that appealing to reason won't work with you because you're already trying to turn this into a conspiracy theory. Sheesh.
Ah... just looked at this person's comment history. Well, there you go then. Nutjob.
Following a previous poster to a different topic (Amazon cargo plane crashing in US), I started following the views on PPRuNe. The Ethiopian flight is discussed here:
Very interesting, and also quite possibly used as a primary source for various news sites.....
...I think this is quite a sweet idea. Yes, it's non-expandable, unfixable and becomes basically a disposable device (with all the bad karma inherent in the throwaway culture we have), but it sounds - well, elegant.
Of course, as the proud user of a Motorola V235 (with extras for when it fails) I'm hardly the main audience.
Virtue signalling was originally about conspicuously showing one's moral superiority. I'm not doing that. I'm saying this person is behaving like an arse.
Of course, now virtue signalling has become a pretty lazy perjorative to denigrate anyone willing to call out someone's poor behaviour, so if that's how you wish to use the term, go ahead - but I'm afraid the flip side is that you can then be accused of virtue signalling my admitting your own shortcomings (and so being better than me), and so it goes on. Yawn. The OP still behaved like an arse.
Count me as being one of the people who only actually thought about #1 and later #2 (to a degree). I'll admit if there were a chance my parcel had been lost I'd care about it, and perhaps I ought to care about the effects on people who've not had their deliveries made.... but no, right now it's immaterial.
Not virtue signalling, I'm afraid, just not being an arse. Some people aren't.
Really not sure what you're trying to say here. I'd like to give you the benefit of doubt and assume you mean you shouldn't employ racists. The alternative meaning I can see sickens me.
Hmm... looked through your posting history. Either you're not particularly nice, or you do a fine job pf pretending so.
The cloud won' affect their power (as they'll be waaay above the vast majority of cloud).
Now, would cloud be an issue for what they're looking at? Possibly, although the beauty of these is that unlike a satellite it'll be easier to tell it to look in particular areas and perhaps avoid the cloud. Note an earlier poster wondered if these could be desired to help the OS map non-UK locations, some of which might be a little less occluded.
Such things as "no adblockers", "sign up to read" and this "because of the GDPR" mere;y cut down on the sites I use. There are plently more.
Some of those which actually ask nicely to remove the adblocker (and which don't take the mickey with the ads) get my views and the revenue that's somehow worth.
