Re: "neither side was short of a few shekels"
Seems it wasn't, it's been changed to 'short of cash' now.

It's 'British' and 'Britain' and it's not but thanks for playing though, your contribution is important ( but probably not in the way you thought it would be). Please keep trying though, your attempts to denigrate our society are
amusing important to us.
"I can't magic HTTPS into existence on a site I don't own if I'd like to link to a data file it hosts,"
Why are you having anything to do with a site that doesn't use https in 2020? It's "free" (yeah I know they build it into the hosting price, but the hosts that aren't charging an arm and leg for for https as an addon are generally better than those that are anyway - Siteground >>> 123Reg ) from decent hosts FFS. There is absolutely no excuse whatsoever for any website not to have https.

Re: those Christmas 'offers', the large round tins of wrapped chocolates (Quality Street et al.) are a classic example. I worked in a Co-op for a while and saw those tins bumped up to £10 or £11 each for about six weeks in July/August-ish before being knocked back down to 'half price', remaining at that price until the following summer bump.
Quick question to all of you. Would I be able to use one of these Ubuntu VMs to operate a LAMP web server from my WIn10 desktop? It wouldn't need to be always on as I'd only use it for testing websites in development and enabling clients to view WIP sites. I currently use a repurposed old E-Machines PC as my test server, but it would be nice to not have to have a separate box.
