Same old, same old, the service is getting too big to cope.

I hope you added this Availability issue as a verified risk when you pushed everything from "On-Prem" to Azure?

You also need to take in to account Off Shore

How many companies started using offshore companies. I have experience of a recent move that a company now does all its IT work via Romania and India.

How has this worked out for HMRC and how many jobs based in UK and not paying UK taxes, is this evasion or avoidance?

LG TV calling home

I would really love to find out if my LG TV is uploading my Mic / Remote control Voice to LG every night.

I recently carried out research into what connects to the internet at night.

Yes, you guessed it, my new LG TV connects at about 4am and was updating all the guff I get on my home screen.

Now I only turn the Network on when I need to use Netflix or Pluto TV, I then turn it off.

I also added a load of Ad sites to my routers blocked list and this has mega reduced the Internet Lag.

I also turn internet and TV off at night, it may also save me electricity.

What we need is a local bank

What we need is a local bank that has free parking and as is open when I am not working.

We are getting ripped off by the banks my bank has just closed the two local towns banks.

I now have to travel 25 miles to nearest, they have just put me on email statements and now dividends for first time in a couple of years. If everything is online I might as well get a totally online bank, so I'm moving.
