Re: Simply Ghastly...
No good if the UPS isn't in use - it wasn't in the article. An intriguing device though!

"Apple argued any move compelling it to ditch the Lightning port, which has been a staple of the iPhone for almost a decade, would inconvenience its customers, simultaneously creating an "unprecedented volume" of electronic waste."
Funny how those considerations weren't important when they ditched the 30-pin connector for lightning.
No, as mentioned above you can put the Virgin hub into modem mode and connect your own router to the one port that remains active. I'm on Virgin and using my own Draytek router. As long as your router has an RJ45 WAN interface, and I think the Drayteks mostly do, you should be OK.
Does your Vigor router have an RJ45 WAN interface, i.e. a network socket for the WAN side? If so you should be OK.
Put the Virgin hub in modem mode, connect the WAN socket on your Draytek router to the specified port on the superhub - only one works when it's in modem mode, it's either 1 or 4, can't remember.
About 15 years ago I finally got fed up with my DVD player misbehaving so decided to replace it. As I removed it from the shelf I noticed an uncharacteristic clunk. Upon opening the case I found a music CD rattling around inside.
The CD was Rooty by Basement Jaxx - the one with a picture of a cartoon gorilla. I reckon my toddler son had found it, thought he'd like to watch cartoon gorillas and not knowing how to open the disc drawer had just stuffed it through a gap in the case. In his defence he was only around 2 at the time.
This talk of password hashing, salting etc has made me realise...when I log on to my bank's website, I'm asked for (say) the first, third and sixth letters of my password. This must mean they're storing the passwords in either plain text, or hashed in a reversible manner (is this the same thing as unsalted?). I'm no security expert so: is my conclusion correct and should I be concerned?
