Re: "over localised regions of the bridge below"
If you put it on a big metal sheet, it'll just reorient the compass when calibrating, I expect, unless it is bright enough to realise the field strength is wrong.

Why even wait for humans? You can throw the files at an AI voice recognition system as a first pass, that'll save you half your money. Stick it in a database with the audio file attached, and then it isn't even dodgy looking when you ask workers to "verify the database" before calling to scam.
Fairly minor stuff for most, but they've acted far faster than normal. Usually it is years before they send out even a letter, this time it's been a month or so. Maybe, stuck at home, the FCC people realise how many people get these calls, because now they are sat there all day getting them too!
I believe there are some well-worn words prepared for those securely standing on battlements to hurl down from above.
Whether Daleks have mothers or fathers, though, I don't know, nor if they would know what a hamster was. Or even if they can smell an elderberry...
This might require more thought...
Cancelling your cards (and effectively closing your bank account for every single payment mechanism you use) is fairly extreme for a strange purchase on Amazon, I think - all that extra work and hassle, for a start.
Have you stopped a bank card recently? There's dozens of places that have the details, that you have to chase down.
So no, killing the card certainly shouldn't be your first step. It hasn't been compromised!
Literally yesterday I was asked by someone on TalkTalk about how they could migrate their Toucansurf email if they leave TalkTalk. Sadly, this article contains the answer - they can't, really, any more, they'll have to start paying for it!
The old chap asking has, as you can guess, had that email since the dawn of Internet time, and it's known around the world.
I've had to sit and wait on commercial jobs where they've had to do a 2 hour signal test for the system before installing a pre-payment meter in a pub basement, etc.
In fact, I don't know of any that talk through the wires in the UK, they all use data over GSM. But, that could be a supplier I've not worked with, or a recent change (I've scaled it back as the money is terrible, and the "customers" frequently worse.)
Is this where I am legally bound to point out that you don't own your electric meter anyway, the supplier does?
If EDF has to change 17 million electric meters, that is their problem, not yours.
This has already been demonstrated in the UK market when "we" installed hundreds of thousands of smart meters, and then... took them all out again and put in old refurbished spinning dial ones!
No cost to the customer, except possibly a little extra wear on the locks of those who, weirdly, were never home, never replied, and turned out to be using huge amounts of electric to warm the attic with lights...
Eh? These meters don't "cut" unless you don't pay your bill, or, if you previously haven't paid your bill long enough, you haven't fed it enough electronic money in advance.
The only other thing could be if you frequently pull over the rated main fuse capacity. But that's 60A minimum, up to 100A, on a single phase, and the alternative is a burning meter, wiring and house, so probably better to get that checked out!
A heck of a lot of these commentards miss this vital paragraph:
"According to the DAIB, WK050 "failed to register ground contact during the ground touch window and auto-aborted", meaning it throttled up and took off."
The drone never landed, and the "pilot" cut the power thinking it had, and was crashing.
No? It never touched the ground. If it had, the thing would've landed. The inertia of spinning up the wheels would've slowed it dramatically, as designed, and the aircraft, suddenly on grass, likely couldn't have powered away without serious effort, instead completing the landing.
It got *really close* to landing. Close enough to fool the "pilots".
The drone came close to landing, but decided it was too far off the centre of the runaway to land, due to the crosswind. It therefore powered up again to go around and try again.
Alas, the "crew" saw the runway turn to grass on the camera display, panicked, and cut the power. They thought it was on the ground, because they were looking at the grass on the video stream, instead of the altitude. Without power, the drone flew a short distance more and hit a tree.
It's the worst of both worlds, and will be the cause of many a death with the soon to arrive "nearly self driving cars".
Imagine travelling for 7 hours from Edinburgh to Birmingham, maintaining awareness of everyone on the road, but without actually changing speed (you're locked at 70, or, mostly, 50 or even 30!), changing lanes, keeping a safe distance - all that's done by the car now. But you've got to be ready, in a heartbeat, to "take over" and save the day off the computer cocks it up, and, say, swerves into contraflow traffic at 50mph. No chance!
Same with this aircraft. It's boring, and you're a "passenger".
The reason for trying to keep the background radioisotopes low in a nuclear power plant, is so that you can detect when there is something going (possibly incredibly badly) wrong.
If it was built from radioactive rock, you wouldn't know if you'd been exposed to a legal dose or a lethal dose.
