Re: You can just ORDER ATMs???
I read it as the dealers run their own cash machines and stuff them with the cash they want laundered.

A sparrowhawk recently caught itself in netting in our garden. We called the RSPB for advice and/or help, but they didn't want to know and suggested we contact the SSPCA.
The RSPB seem to be more interested in land preservation and pushing their agenda in the countryside.
[btw, the SSPCA were helpful and the hawk was released unharmed, much to the chagrin of the local song birds]
It may be zero cost and seamless from your provider, but some providers 'make' you pay through the nose (e.g. >£50 annually for a single domain SSL certificate from Heart Internet).
That's fine for businesses, but OTT for a small club or charity website that doesn't collect information or sell stuff online.
That's not the end of the fibre, it runs far closer and there are Openreach crews rolling more out in the area. Wayleave shouldn't be a problem as there are few landowners, and there may even be an existing route to the exchange (though doubtless in pretty poor shape if it's underground).
It's certainly not a Des-Res, with fully loaded timber lorries belting past just all day just a few feet away (when the R&BT isn't shut).
My adaptive cruise control car is a (not top of the range) Skoda. It's not a Tesla, it doesn't steer for me, it's 20th century cruise control but with the benefit that it maintains a minimum distance from the vehicle in front; perfect for those long slow road works with average speed cameras.
I regularly drive the length of Spain and it's a refreshing change from blighty.
With few exceptions, everyone drives on the right; they signal, pull out, overtake, and return to the right leaving the left lane(s) free (except rush hour around Madrid).
Last time I returned from a visit the traffic in the UK looked similar .. on the A3 most folk drove on the right, and on the M25 they drove on the right and over/undertook on the left albeit with less courtesy than the Spanish.
Firstly just tell the delivery driver that you hadn't ordered anything from Amazon and simply refuse to accept delivery on the basis that you didn't place the order...
That doesn't work during Covid - delivery drivers are just leaving goods on doorsteps, maybe taking a photo as proof of delivery in lieu of a signature, then ringing the doorbell and scarpering. By the time I get to the door they're already in the their van ready to go.

Under that clause, is it not the responsibility of the NHS trust in question since it is them that are making the content of the communication system available by broadcasting it in plain text in the first place?
Why should the NHS spend a fortune upgrading their systems just because some scrote has a cheap SDR dongle and chooses to broadcast their pager messages? It may be old technology, but it has wider coverage than mobile telephony.
This is the same as intercepting ambulance, police, fire, coastguard, aircraft etc. radio conversations in the clear .. listening in is illegal but unlikely to lead to prosecution, however acting on those messages or re-transmitting them is the bigger problem.
I remember reading of a case in the UK, probably in the 90s, where the directors of a small software house were jailed after selling customers an accounts package that contained two sets of books, the real (hidden) ones, and the ones sent to the Revenue.
The one I'm familiar with was in the '80s (courtesy of a close contact in the Customs & Excise computer investigation branch).
An Apple II accounting package was found to have a backdoor .. log in with the regular password and accounts were clean, but append a value, e.g. password10, and that percentage of transactions would be 'lost'.
IIRC the program was written in BASIC, so once suspicions were aroused it wasn't too difficult to find out what was going on.
Many moons ago I was documenting a CAD program that had been migrated from a terminal UI to a graphical UI.
One icon that had me confused looked like a pair of cat footprints. .. turns out it was Pause (Paws).
I can't remember if it was changed after I pointed out that there may be problems when it came to translating to French or German.
I've used a Contech Scarecrow for several years (PIR and water pressure, uses a PP3 battery) that works for foxes, cats, dogs, deer and herons.
I've also added an electric fence around the garden perimeter (powered by solar panel +12v battery) to cover areas that the scarecrow doesn't reach, and for over winter when the scarecrow would be wrecked by frost.
The US claim that the territorial airspace extends 12 miles off the Iranian coast. The Iranians claim that they have a territorial limit of 22Km. Twelve miles is approx 19300 meters, not 22000 meters. Perhaps both sides are telling their own truth.
12 Nautical Miles IS 22000 metres (well, closer to 22224).
I started teaching computing in a lab with a few dozen BBC Bs (+Macintoshes +Amstrads +other shiny stuff )
One of the first introductions I gave the youngsters was to have them enter the following, after working out the answer for themselves beforehand:
PRINT 2.23 - 2.18
The moral being that you don't take anything that a computer tells you for granted .. some things don't change, even after 35+ years.
[If you don't know what it does, try it for yourself on an online beeb emulator]
Irrespective of the badge and price, does it address your needs?
To continue the above analogy - I don't care how fast or shiny these cars are .. can I fit a [wheelchair / family / fridge] in the back? If not, I'll keep using my estate (station wagon).
The UK has its share of this stupidity, too. (Though perhaps, given that sentiment and greed plays such a part, it is rational if your only interest is to score some cash and run before the house falls down).
Ferranti and International Signal spring to mind.
..oh wait, no there are some plans - everyone's booked vacations abroad in April ..
No, holidays will be taken in March .. after that we'll be limited to only a couple of bottles of wine duty free. (at least the anomaly of it being cheaper for me to drive from Scotland and buy my whisky in Spain will go away)
I've always use Haynes manuals as guidance rather than gospel, though religiously buying one for every "new" purchase of a car or motorbike - they invariably paid for themselves after a few months of buying someone else's problems.
I didn't lose a spanner, but found a dropped and lost screwdriver after a few years that had fallen between the radiator and fan (1960s or 70s mini, escort or transit van .. memory's a bit dim). The acrylic handle had been polished to 45 degrees and was a spit away from causing <shudder> grief </shudder>.
I stay by my original assessment. Das Plod is either fumbling the ball here or there is something else at work like f.e. a grey import with reflashed numbers.
I'd suggest not fumbling, just looking for more evidence .. e.g. to correlate with other potential perps; they may have the device but not the operator; see where else they've been (physically, and on t'Internet), and so on.
