Re: Thames Water... had 'very bad holes in their systems'
Thames Water has sold off 25 reservoirs. Other water companies have also sold off reservoirs.

Hitler's policy was to blame the Jews for everything and use that as a means to gain power. His actual economic policies, other than the stuff about targeting Jews which he is rightly remembered and vilified for, were pretty unremarkable.
Mussolini was more about government support for big corporations at the expense of individuals as a way to achieve economic growth.
The end-game for both was of course the same, but if you were looking at them in the early stages, they looked very different. They took a very different route to the same destination.
Looking at Trump, I would say it looks more like an incompetent Hitler than a Mussolini.
I'd argue that it isn't renewable, because it uses up land. Once your reactor reaches the end of its live, you have a piece of land that can't ever be used again for anything, for the next 10,000 years or so. Or, if you have a level 7 disaster like Chernobyl or Fukushima, you have a much larger piece of land that is unusable.
How many people have starved because crops can no longer be grown around Chernobyl and Fukushima? You can't point to specific death certificates or gravestones, but that doesn't mean those people don't exist.
I think the answer is, don't rebuild the software from backups, build that from the original source. Only restore the data from backups.
Of course the software, even if it isn't infected, will still have the same vulnerability that allowed the original attack to happen, so you need to identify and fix it.
Access is looking almost like abandonware now:
New features added to Access 2021:
- Slightly improved add tables task pane
- Slightly improved tabs for table view
- Slightly improved linked table manager
- New DateTime2 format with greater range and precision
- Support for Dark Themes
- Slightly improved query designer
- Slightly improved relationships window
- Slightly improved colour picker dialogue
But, and this is very important:
The users are the customers of the advertisers.
No users, or no users who buy the advertised products means no business.
Or, put it another way, this is like saying that we are not Intel's customers because Intel don't sell direct to consumer, they sell via distributors and PC Manufacturers.
In Excel, tables is a big one for me. I'm not sure exactly when they were introduced. I don't think they were in 2003, and I skipped 2007.
More recently, =SWITCH() is pretty useful. You can do the same with nested =IF(), but switch makes it a lot cleaner. =SUMIFS() [like =SUMIF() but with multiple criteria] is useful, as is =COUNTIFS().
Spillable functions like =UNIQUE() are also pretty useful.
These days, Access is about 10 years behind the times. When did it last get a meaningful update?
I'm pretty sure Microsoft now wants you to use PowerBI instead of Access. Other, usually server-based alternatives may be more appropriate for your needs.
Excel, I think is where the biggest problem is. Libre Calc will do the basics, but it does not have feature parity with Excel.
Yes, but people trusted Tornado to give them their money back because they have a track record of doing that.
Will they be able to trust any of the alternative services not to run away with their money?
Look for example at the alternative Silk Roads that popped up after the original was shut down.
You can definitely download a Windows ISO from Microsoft if you use Safari on MacOS.
Interestingly I tried it on Chrome / Windows 10 right now, and it actually worked there as well. Perhaps my adblocker extension helped here, so your mileage may vary. But, if you want to install a VM on your Mac, you will definitely not have a problem getting the ISO.
HGVs do 60mph because that’s their speed limit. If the were able to drive an extra 10 miles per hour, that’s maybe 50 miles in a shift, so an individual driver + lorry could do more jobs per day.
Buses are allowed to do 70mph on the motorway, and they mostly do drive at that speed when they can.
He did his research, and decided that Phantom was a trustworthy supplier.
Google claimed that this wallet came from Phantom when it did not, and the fact that it didn't come from Phantom was the reason why he had a problem with it.
I agree that crypto is a scam, but my opinion is not relevant here. This is a scam based on top of another scam. A scam² if you like.
With oil, it would work something like this:
You sign a contract to buy a quantity of oil on a particular date.
Normally you would send an oil tanker to the collection point on that date and they will fill it up with the oil you paid for.
You can alternatively sell that contract to someone else who wants some oil, and they then send their tanker to the collection point.
Oil price speculators will buy and sell these contracts to hopefully make money out of them.
Electricity futures work in much the same way, except it is electricity not a physical liquid so the actual delivery arrangements are a bit different.
I have a pair of i7-3770s sitting in my pile of recently retired computers. I don't know how the Ivy Bridge i7 compares with the Xeon version for single core performance, but either way, I could definitely use one of them to crack this in a few minutes.
Now imagine how quick this would be on an Alder Lake, or even an A14.
