Jackie 'You have no authority here' Weaver calls on the UK to extend Coronavirus Act provisions for online meetings
While I have no sympathy whatsoever for the company involved for producing an insecure system, I don't agree with "The person who identified the loophole has so far acted responsibly. He stated he has no intention to use this to do any harm [and] wants to see NurseryCam raise the overall standards of our security measures."
Surely acting responsibly means telling the company, not dumping the data online, poorly redacted or not?

It's Google's hardware launch day, and what do we get? A few Pixel phones, Nest kit, and another Chromecast
If the Solar System's 'Planet Nine' is actually a small black hole, here's how we could detect it... wait, what?

I recently purchased second hand copies for the PS3 of Doom 3: BFG Edition and Wolfenstein: The New Order and while I used to be absolutely hopeless on a PC, I'm even more hopeless on a console :(
Strangely I'm even really disappointed by the graphics which are pretty good but I actually was hoping for equivalent of the 90's PC versions!

I love the idea of a smart watch but realised it wasn't for me when I bought a Mi from China for a tenner from Amazon. When using it, I ended up turning off all the annoying notifications of emails, messages etc. so it was basically just an inaccurate fitness tracker.
Saved me a few hundred quid on a smart watch realising I wouldn't actually use it.

Re: Dr Phisher
Hogarth is a good singer and I agree with what you've said but he doesn't do it for me sadly.
In the same way I mostly listen to Gabriel-era Genesis, I very rarely listen to post-Fish Marillion - okay, I bought Season's End and realised that it just didn't cut it for me - the versions of the songs off it that Fish sang were so much better, I can't remember whether they were on a Vigil in the Wilderness or the recent box set anniversary edition of either Misplaced Childhood or Clutching at Straws.
I still hope the rumours of the unreleased album that was too similar to Misplaced Childhood turns out to be true and it finally surfaces!
Watchdog asks UK.gov to reissue freedom of information guidance after councils are told to STFU about Brexit plans
According to the South West Regional Cyber Crime Unit who presented at a conference I attended a couple of weeks ago, if you pay you may or may not (same odds were given) get your files un-encrypted but you definitely will get your details passed around as someone who paid to other ransom ware controllers, who of course will then target you even more.
I started with a ZX-81, then a Commodore Vic-20 and then a Commodore 64 before going out to work doing data entry on a IBM System 360.
Then off to uni to study Software Engineering and a career (employment more like!) so thanks very much Clive, it's all your fault! :D
I didn't think the Commodore 64 Programmer's Reference Guide was bad, I've still got mine although I don't refer to it anymore.
Back to the ZX-81, absolutely loved Mazogs and 3D Monster Maze but 3D Defendr was virtually impossible to play - great times to be growing up.
