This gives me a mental image of British soldiers just sitting around playing Counter Strike Source.

I'm pretty sure I'm not legally obligated to do either one of those things. Hell, I stopped carrying anything in my wallet with my name on specifically because of that.
Though iirc, one's legally required to identify themselves in the case of traffic accidents and violations.
Funnily enough, I was reading an article recently which stated that the government *knows* this won't work and is going to cause an increase in fraud, but is still going to go ahead with it anyway.
I can't help wonder how this will effect people who've encrypted their entire hard drive with VeraCrypt, or at least run something out of an encrypted file 24/7.
Because surely the reading and writing, not to mention the use of an encryption driver will be pretty heavy on system calls.

I cant say I've ever noticed a BT logo on it before (then again, I've never really looked that closely at it), but yeah, that's what it looks like.
But someone did live in the house from it's building (which was the late 80s) to when we moved in in 1997, so unless they had something done...
This might seem a bit offtopic, but...
...if Broadband providers can charge me extortionate amounts of money for "upto" a speed, then I should be allowed to pay them "upto" whatever they're charging me. That seems fair.
Esp. since I've been paying £22.31/month for 768 kbps ~ 1023 kbps for around six months now.
I did do a speed check on all ISPs that I could think of (Zen, EE, etc.) and 2MB to 4MB seems to be the maximum I can get...
Doubt that would work, since you could just change one pixel and the hash would change. Meaning you could have 2,000 separate hashes for the same image.
For example, services that flag child pornography when it's uploaded use a special software (PhotoDNA) which converts the image to grayscale, then breaks it down into a grid and calculates a number per grid until they wind up with something like 1000,481,0,0,251..., meaning that modifying the image is pointless.
People would be better off getting the numerical sum of their nudes with that.
But the problem with that is, regular people aren't allowed access to that software unless they're a LEA or popular service like Facebook. (Which sucks, as I have a large anime artwork collection I'd love to sort through far more easily to remove duplicates.)
"There is no legal definition of hostility so the CPS uses the everyday understanding of the word which includes ill-will, spite, contempt, prejudice, unfriendliness, antagonism, resentment and dislike."
Unfriendliness, resentment and dislike?
Oh yes, this idea is bullet proof...
