Re: Does 11 years actually mean 11 years?
Similar to the UK. She could serve just a third of her sentence but given the serious nature of the offence and her pretty clear lack of remorse I doubt she will get released that quickly.

As "middle management" in a government IT department it fell to me to be at work when nobody else wanted to be or when everyone else was out getting slaughtered, and as "middle management" that meant "doing one's duty for no extra pay". For a number of years Christmas Eve generally meant "12 hour shift playing Quake 2 CTF" and that also included, to my better half's annoyance, 1999 New Year's Eve.
And don’t forget the multiple uses of ‘probably’ by PWC, who ‘probably’ charged HSE a lot more than the $20m ransom.
One of the beauties of cyber security consultancy: you can state obvious facts (“you’ve been hacked” or “what? No backup?”) with no responsibility and can charge whatever you like.
One worse has to be Leroy Merlin. Their Cotê D’Azur branch is just off an almost unmarked road which, if you miss it, puts you right into the A8 péage. The store is up a long winding roads at the top of a hill which peters out to a track before you see the entrance. Store service makes you long for the occasional insult you get at Castodrama or even (what my nearest and dearest calls) BalsUpitrand.
Whatever name marketing could come up with will undoubtedly be rendered by Zuck into something easy that he can understand. His wife (Priscilla) is commonly referred to as 'wife' while the dog is just called 'beast'. Facebook will probably just be called "corporation" or "work" but at an extreme could be called ZuckCorp after his inspiration LexCorp.
Not just that but Canon "inks" tend to be small, cost one hell of a lot and that you need 6 separate ink cartridges. Also the printers have a nasty habit of going into "petulant" mode without warning and then demanding that you go over to the printer and confirm that you are indeed printing to A4 paper, or whatever.
Mine got left in a London street with the warning "works fine, will bankrupt you and may cause irrational anger".
Slightly annoyed that the agency I contract through pays OutsIde IR35 contractors within 14 days of receipt of funds but pays Inside IR35 contractors 30 days after funds received from the client (which can be 180 days). I am still waiting to be paid fo work done in May 2021.
Can not upvote your comment enough. Yes it is truly awful to see these billionaires squander cash on “my rocket goes higher than yours” projects, but where is the point of caring about this any more? They are not going to pay tax simply because of how outraged we are at their behaviour or indeed because Boris asks them to pay a bit more.
The last but one person* who attacked me received a free Tesla Roadster, has a rather good view of your home and I dare say even one of your
concentration camps distribution centres from orbit.
* The last one I called a pedo guy since he didn't like my idea about rescuing children from a cave.
Providing a shopping list for the UK's criminal fraternity as well as causing gun owners to now be forced to increase their home protection could not possibly be a cause for 'terror'.
No doubt the SWRCCU have their excuses and PR well prepared when a family is murdered in their home for their firearms collection.
The contract is awarded to Capita* to implement a national UK EV charging system at a cost to taxpayers of £1.3 billion. Come 2033 there are still no EV charging points except for some at Capita's headquarters in Reading. Capita offer to remedy the situation at a cost to the taxpayer of another £2 billion.
