Not to mention conspiring to interfere with an ongoing police investigation. But I gather that is de rigueur these days in certain circles.

Appmaker was treated just like all those other too good sci fi shows on TV when that had schedules.
Piddled around and hidden behind the sofa. Oh and you had to have the right subscription.
Not properly linked from the menus, had to spin up a 'default sql instance' on cloud in order to use _any_ sql.
As with so many things people make, it was almost good. Almost just enough to get people going. But no. They went and ****ed up just a few details to make it die an early and broadly ignored death. One can only speculate at the bullshit internal politics that must have driven those choices, and what agendas those competing teams must have, and how big a bunch of tits anyone who pushed it into their organisation must look right now.
Normally a big fan of the publishing here, but, is the Ed still on vacation?
Why would you trot out lines of stats about the types of injury and then move swiftly into the bold (and apparently unsupported by the stats you just quoted) assertion about head injuries?
Please, Reg, a little discipline would go a long way.
Seems easy to stop them republishing politicians lies. Just ban politicians from the platform.
But where do you stop then? Your mate Bob from school posting Meme's that have political slants?
Gill from work who posts something a little bit edgy about a new law?
Announcement from the government that inflation is 2.4%?
When my infra cocks up it knocks out a project or 3 for a while.
When GCP cocks up it knocks out many, many projects for a while.
Question is, for -me- are they more likely to cockitup, or me? I still think that for anything outside my core skillset and that of those around me, it's a fair bet that theirs will be significantly better, with the added advantage that when they _do_ mess up, it's pub time not panic stations.
If the technology exists to make a website or technical product accessible it seems reasonable to expect it to be so under both UK and US laws.
IANAL, but, surely if this is on their website and is distributed by their website for playback in their website or apps, then surely they have a responsibility to try to the best of their ability to comply with anti disability legislation?
I note that currently Dominos is under fire in the US due to it's 'bricks and mortar' store presence mandating web compliance. Amazon is rumoured to be opening physical stores, so perhaps is equally tied?
Certainly it would seem sensible for their most important website - the UK one, to be compliant with the reasonable expectation of accessibility?
Just remember the bean counters are the front line in the fight for all our jobs.
Of all the staff in most offices, the bean mob has bled and died at the sharp end of IT for coming on for 60 years. Decimated twice a decade, now you tend to only see the pathetic hardcore remnants clinging to a bleak and progressively miserable existence after being ground beneath the oblivious boot heel of IT automation.
Find an old retired accountant. Ask them about the glory days when accounts staff took up a large chunk of the budget, how many people filled those productive roles. Gone forever. Along with the tea lady.
Of course truncate can be rolled back; even in Postgres, otherwise it wouldn't be acid compliant, would it...
But... if it's already committed then I'm pretty sure you are bang out of luck on all the proper rdbms platforms...
Happy to be corrected if someone knows of an exception to the rule that you cannot roll back a committed transaction?
