I had an email the other day with "Sent from my IBM 370/65" appended...

Motorola Moto G 5G Plus: It won't blow your mind, but at £300 we're struggling to find much to grumble about

Nice phone, but it might be worth checking that Bluetooth works properly before you buy.

A lot of people on the Moto/Lenovo forum are complaining that the recent "upgrade" to Android 10 has borked Bluetooth on G7s and G8s. It's certainly borked it on my G7 Plus, which won't pair with any of four cars I've tried it on.

Official UN panel findings on embassy-squatter released. Assange: I'm 'vindicated'


Re: Never mind Assange

Looks like a couple of 1960s-vintage Racal RA17s and some other elderly bits and pieces. Don't they have FTTC or FTTP in Hans Crescent?

Hmm. Vodafone coverage of RAF Cranwell, RAF Shawbury, RAF Cosford and RAF St Athan is non-existent and O2 isn't much better. I can think of several civil airfields where there's no Vodafone and very little of anywhere else either. Sleap, Wellesbourne Mountford and Enstone come to mind.
