will not use a phone for anything important like banking because not only don't they trust the phone, they don't trust the banks app software (or maybe just don't trust the banks)

If it is off road I believe it is OK for it to be without MOT as long as it is Taxed or SORN, you can't get it taxed without MOT (or less than 3 years old), so would have to SORN it then. If VED is due at end of month and MOT due then, probably worth seeing if you can renew now as I have managed that in past to ensure tax disk arrived in time, even though MOT would expire before new Tax started (though don't know if it will work with new system)
shutdown /s is easier - and something you can explain to an non IT person.
But that still leaves us with MS Windows Team, in an effort to pretend Windows boots faster, mislabelled the action which leads to lots of confusion when full shutdown is required.
Currently using a two in one laptop with touch screen but using a Bluetooth mouse in preference to either the touch screen or touch pad, though the touch screen can be useful when ****** Windows decides Bluetooth device is unknown/not working and I need to reboot it again (another stupid decision by MS making proper shut down so difficult as sometimes you need a cold boot for it to forget it is broken).
Have you tried switching to mono on Android, usually too much effort for when I am out walking and pull one ear bud out to hear the vehicles when doing short stretches on the road (and often doesn't really matter, but can be a pain when people speaking are on different channels)
IEE wiring regulations Part P - however you can still do minor stuff yourself see FAQ (work in Kitchens is specifically excluded) or even do the lot and get it inspected (though will probably cost more than just getting an electrician).
I find Firefox's reader mode quite often makes it go away, along with a lot of other rubbish without clicking button (though sometimes kills the bits I want), alternatively deleting some nodes from the DOM using dev tools also often makes it go away but that is more effort
At least it sounds like they couldn't do help desk did on one of my systems - tell user how to bypass check and close ticket, fortunately user contacted me as they felt it worng, but the battle it took to get helpdesk to amended their procedures when a user hit the problem with internal system to send ticket onto the support team.
Because if you don't then you will likely be opening yourself up for DoS attacks where someone pushes a few million characters into password field and because password hashing is designed to be slow it will take a lot of resources on the sever if your get a lot of connections passing in very long password.
However it should be possible to find a sensible limit above 20 characters (bcrypt I believe only handles 72 bytes for hashing)
I believe Columbus thought the Earth was smaller and thus he could sail the other way to Asia - people just thought he'd run out of supplies well before he got to Asia. He insisted what he found in the Americas was part of Asian continent - see Wiki Entry Christopher Columbus
Depends on how good the GUI is - not all of them are equal.
I can drop to the command line if I need to, but as 99% of the time I don't need the extra cli provides as workflows are quite simple I just stay in preferred GUI as it works well for me.
We are only using GIT because project team wanted it on their CV and never used any of the power of GIT (one conversation went they hadn't check in code yet as waiting for testing to finish )
Since I have been using code repositories starting with Visual SourceSafe in 90s, through several others to GIT now I pretty much always use a GUI to check in my commits - I find GUIs make it much easier to review all of the changes I am committing
It said they installed "specialised accurate time cards" - it could the microwaves was changing the card's memory/registers and the computer time was being updated according to these new values. It would have to impacted something in the computer, probably clock/interrupts - but that may not have been meant clock going backwards
There is a firm of accountants at that address - small companies often use their accountants office as their registered address, so I'd guess the company uses those accountants.
I was once confused why a recruiting agency was using the address of company that I had worked for (before it collapsed) as their own, then I remembered we had rented space from the accountants who occupied most of the building.
