Re: It was *supposed* to turn the aeroplane
It would be fun trying to land at somewhere like Turin, where the plane has to fly a corkscrew path to get down

During my time at Time Computers I regularly got the help desk staff to talk customers through removing hard drives, giving them a sharp rap on the floor and replacing them.
It would free up "frozen" read heads and get the drive working long enough to back up data.
Quite a common problem, especially on 80gb Seagate and Hitachi/IBM drives
The heat from the plenum chamber exhaust would on landing be so fierce that it would
1) destroy any surface the aircraft landed on
2) bounce back and melt the aircraft
3) get reingested and destroy the engine
One of the Harrier test pilots, John Farley related on PPRUNE how he regarded the P1154 as a death trap and refused to have anything to do with it
Interestingly, NHS Wales recently did a deal to migrate all its GP Surgeries to the Microtest clinical software system exactly because it wasn't convinced that Emis and the other suppliers could comply with either GDPR or its own needs for data security.
The data is held locally, not in the cloud. The fact that the local data servers run an old unsupported version of SCO Unix seems to be ignored
It uses SCO Openserver 6
"........... to submit a list of their social media accounts, both those under their real name and those operated under an alias."
So if you don't tell them about any posted under an alias how will they know?
Make sure phone / laptop doesn't have any shortcuts / favourites / apps installed,clear history and cookies and they'll never know. They're hardly going to check your IP history with your ISP to see where you've been browsing. Are they????

Lying down on the bed naked, tired after work having a damned good scratch.
Door flies open, middle aged attractive woman walks in, takes one look at me and freezes........
"What are you doing in my room?" she said
"Its my room - I was here first, but you can stay if you want. Fancy a beer?"
She politely declined the beer and exited backwards, staring at my exposed parts.
A few years back we were working through all the GP surgeries in Cumbria, upgrading them to Windows 7. At the same time we were migrating them all to the Cumbria CCG domain. We had five teams, spread across the county.
All went well, until after around four weeks we hit a snag: the domain admin account we were all using kept getting locked. This went on for two weeks, with one day the lock happening thirty times. As you can imagine, it caused chaos - the domain admin account was knocked out for the whole of the County
Eventually I tracked it down to one faulty keyboard - the J and M keys were connected with a piece of plastic flash so if you pressed one you got both.......
Needless to say, the team working on that site got some ribald comments.
Never liked using HP keyboards after that
The UK government is currently worried by the rapid expansion over the last two years of the chinese into the massage parlour industry in the UK
The number of parlours, and the number of chinese girls working in them is growing exponentially and is seen as a deliberate policy by the chinese underworld gangs. Besides the money earned from prostitution, the parlours are fronts for laundering the cash from more exotic crimes, and gives the chinese government a ready support network for the increasing number of spies embedded in British industry
