Under "dual criminality" what he's accused of in the US must be a crime under UK law. It must also carry a prison sentence of at least a year.
Now I'm not sure we have an equivalent of "wire fraud" in the UK. Do we?

"it was always difficult to remember WTF you did 3 or 4 years ago last time the server re-booted"
Did you have an unstable server? The only time we ever rebooted a Novell box was when the cleaners unplugged it. We found it under a pile of paperwork in a storage room. Probably still running now...
If you phone (any brand) is setup to receive auto updates for certain apps or security updates, it's not an arduous task to gain access if you happen to control the app store or OS itself. Plus there are still ways to change phone configurations like APN via special SMS messages, or you can simply create a local tower and MITM any connections.
Since the provider's software or website created the hash in the first place, it's a very simple task to re-create it to a known password hash and then back again. If you have access to the back-end systems there are all manner of ways to get in unless the data is encrypted using an end-user-based key.
If Israel or Brits were to do the same thing, they wouldn't leave their fingerprints on it or publicise it; however everyone would secretly know they were behind it.
If the US were to carry out the assassination, perhaps they should have just turned around and said, "Yep we did it. He bombed our embassy. Here endeth the lesson." Without all the usual bluster and double-speak.
I often get 'randomly-selected' for additional checks at airport security gates.
To be fair I did once forget there was a screwdriver in my carry-on work bag and they only discovered it about 5 minutes into my search. I was shocked and disappointed... that my favourite screw driver they put in the bin.
I was once an administrative contractor for ComputaCentre who managed BT's IT desktop infrastructure.
I was working in a Service Delivery Office when we were advised some HQ people were rewriting our scheduling system in Excel. At the time this meant single-user write access which was limiting given that we worked in teams of two. I pointed this out to both my manager and the visiting HQ lot but was told "yes it's something we're hoping to get around."
They got around the Excel issue by
reducing the teams to one getting rid of the contractors... which was obviously always the plan. I was let go as part of a cost-cutting exercise shortly afterwards. Decent wage, nice people but massive lack of IT knowledge for a supposed IT company.
"chargeback" is the process of reclaiming a disputed payment.
Do you mean "pre-authorisation" which checks if the card can cover a payment and reserves that amount ready to be "authorised" (claimed) later. It's a common practice when setting up online payment methods or using Pay-at-Pump petrol (gas) stations. In fact it used to be a stipulation of the card companies that an online retailer could not take money from your card until they had shipped your order.
My colleague had BG come out to fit new gas and electric smart meters a few weeks ago.
The chap said he couldn't get the two meters to communicate properly and left.
Since then his power has been tripping on a random basis.
It sounds like the roll-out is going as well as any large-scale tech project does.
A lot of people live in apartments or pedestrianised areas. This is a significant hurdle to overcome when it comes to EV ownership. In lower income areas the investment isn't going to be made in that infrastructure because those on lower incomes can't afford EVs.
The UK (and other countries) has plans to block sales of fossil-fuel-based cars which could well further dis-enfranchise poorer families who don't have the means to change to EVs. The governments argument against this would be "use public transport" but I often find that method of travel completely impractical*.
I count myself among those people who would switch if economically, habitually and environmentally sound and feasible. Currently, this isn't the case.
*a 5 mile commute becomes 2 buses + 25 minute walk. Plus 20-30 minutes become 60-90.
My HP Colour laser has similar (by) design flaws. Their consumables are extortionate but thankfully generics are easily (and cheaply) obtained.
Often had to unscrew and reset the toner level indicator on Brother toners which reported empty but still had plenty of powder left. Other than that, would recommend for SOHO uses*
Been stung by Canon and Lexmark colour lasers before so would never recommend them.
*unless you're using in actual Soho... because the contrast isn't great ;)
Threaten tariffs so the market buys kit now before the prices go up which makes it look like the market is buoyant.
Then delay tariffs until wholesalers have stocked up for Christmas which keeps the supply level high and consumers can spend in the run-up to Christmas.
Then once tariffs are in place (after domestic electronics firms have had time to adjust their supply chain), people will buy US due to the price differentials on imported kit.
so... Michael O'Leary's deal... As part of the deal, his current pay will be halved to €1m and he will be given share options at a fixed price (that he would have to buy for €111m - they are not a gift).
Conditions (one of):
- double the current share price to €21 (currently €10 with a previous high of €18.60 in 2017)
- RyanAir to make €2bn+ profit in a year (€1.45bn in 2018)
The €99m figure comes from the potential resale value of those share options if he takes them up AND he raises the share price as per the conditions. It's not guaranteed but it seems like a good deal for the investors who haven't been paid a dividend in a few years.
Of course, in order to meet the necessary conditions, they'll need the 737-Max to be re-approved or they'll need to find additional saving in flesh-bags or chargeable add-ons like... seat belts, use of the toilet etc.
Find a decent bar-person, tip them (it doesn't need to be much) and smile and thank them.
For this, the next round you'll be served a lot quicker because we'll remember:
a) your face
b) the drinks you want
c) that you were courteous to us
Solution looking for a problem methinks.
Icon - what not to be or you'll be earning penalty queue time.
"What’s your solution? How do you propose to ensure that the hardworking men and women of law enforcement sworn to protect you and your families maintain lawful access to the information they need to do their jobs?"
erm... we don't. This was your idea. We told you it can't be done. If YOU think it can, then have at it.
