Chatbots are designed to wear you down until you give up, certainly NatWest's does by spewing out random words that don't make any sense in the order they are spit out. They may be Artificial but they will never be Intelligent.
Plusnet use real people who know what their company does, the Yorkshire accent is thrown in free.
A tip to get to a real person quickly is to select the Welsh language option, if provided, they all speak English perfectly.
I would like to see the risk assessment of anywhere that allowed personnel to enter a confined space with an active fire suppression system. All HV switchrooms that I have entered, and there have been more than a few daily over many years, had an interlock system to ensure you could not enter unless the fire suppression was locked off. A bit of a pain but a lot better than trying to breath CO2.
This would explain why the system might have been switched off during maintenance.
"Otherwise it's like the whiners who never stop whining that GIMP isn't Photoshop! Gee, who knew? That really is the point, isn't it: GIMP is NOT Photoshop. If you want P'shop use P'shop, don't fill up lines of message boards whining on and on about how GIMP isn't P'shop, ... ad nauseum"
And I thought Gimp was just a free version of Photoshop.
So the story seems to be that Twitter, a large web based company, who employ probably, hundreds of security staff and software engineers have been hacked by three or four teenagers, presumably with no formal education in computer security.
This company seems to make money by offering a service to allow some of it's users to annoy the rest of it's users, who must like being annoyed or otherwise they would not use the service.
The security services of the US and UK are now busy basking in the glory of managing to trace these kids.
Why haven't we offered these kids jobs in counter espionage?
All this talk about "free" broadband if fine but as we all know there is no such thing as a free lunch.
So who is going to pay for it since the only money a government has is what it steals off the people?
I'm afraid its going to be you me and all the other taxpayers, including those taxpayers that don't want or use broadband, either in direct taxes or in increased prices from the likes of Amazon who sure as hell are not going to absorb the extra tax.
If the ear thingies stop working the only person to know that will be the wearer.
Since most people wear them to impress others it does not matter whether they work or not.
When I was kid people put the dog end of their fag behind their ear, these things look just like dog ends hanging out of the ear.
"Compromised to what end? So TheBadGuys[tm] can taunt the occupant about their inefficient 1970s appliances. Does it really matter? ... and besides, why would TheBadGuys[tm] bother? There's no money in the taunting game. "
If you could switch consumers off and on in sufficiently large blocks you could very quickly trip out the whole grid, think black start on steroids. No electric, gas, water, sewage, internet, alarms, phones all without a single shot fired.
And even if it is all running correctly you still have to rely on French logic.
