I can just see how this goes:
1) ICO Commissioner resigns and is boosted to HoL
2) Baroness Harding, fresh from the
TalkTalk Track 'N Trace fiasco takes over
3) ICO sequester several BA jets in attempt to get the money
4) Nobody wants to buy them except BA who offer 5% as a buyback.
Agree, but Slack does have its uses, provided that do not need video or (TBH) audio conferencing thrown in. Slack's webhooks are easier to implement than Teams and Teams also has an issue where updates can throw out your channel hook scripts: meaning that you have to rewrite them.
As a way of avoiding Teams then Slack combined with Hangouts works quite well I find.
Is that LaVeyan Satanism then? If so then they did revere Satan as a figurehead, which makes their claim, "as an atheistic religion, we don’t believe there is anything to make a sacrifice to" about as serious as the Flat Earth Society's claim that they are indeed a global community.
That's nothing. The Russians have developed a robotic civil servant. 'She' helps with issuing certificates to testify that people have a clean criminal record and no record of drug use - no mention of use of lethal force in the event of non-compliance or failure to salute the picture of Dobby on the wall.
My understanding is that the phrase originates (and is still used) in London clubs where members voting on a new joiner could select a white ball to allow or a black ball to reject. Hence the phrase "blackballed". Clubs shared a list of those blackballed members and so you get the phrase "blacklist": nothing whatsoever to do with slavery.
A large number of TCS contractors working in the UK were/are unable to return home due to the travel lockdown. As a result of this I notice that daily rates for IT contractors appear to have plummeted, with some agencies saying that they can offer senior web developer contractors at £150 per day, as opposed to the normal £500 per day I would expect to be paying.
After all, if you're developing some top-secret military aircraft, an engine is an engine; and the sub-contractor is none the wiser.
Oh dear. "That engine looks like it could run at Mach 15: are we going to put it in a Project X jet? No, its just an engine - we are fitting it in a 737MAX."
Certainly if I received a call from someone saying "you have been in contact with someone with Coronavirus, we need you to give us the name and telephone number of every one of your friends, just in case you have passed it on to them" then my reaction would be along the lines of, "Sounds like Advanced Fee Fraud, is this NHS Lagos by any chance?"
