Also in the Goon Show
As well as the Avengers movie, the Kingsway Tram Subway also appeared in an episode of the Goon Show, although it was in the dark (and on the radio).

The sole director of Jackpotcomics Ltd is listed as being resident in the Philippines.
The referenced BBC investigation uncovered how tens of thousands of companies were set up, recruiting people in the Philippines to be registered as their directors. I assume they did this because when HMRC realise the arrangement is dodgy, the directors are out of their reach.
I'm sure there are legitimate UK companies with Filipino directors, but this looks very much like the tax dodge identified by the BBC.
The subheading "But it seems the iPhone 6 and SE will be looked after until the end of time" isn't right - the iPhone 6 was dropped in 2019.
The iPhone 6s is a different thing.
Even that is unlikely to be looked after until the end of time, but that's a different matter :-)
The article says BT believes it could achieve a 50 per cent reduction in latency, which isn't the same as a 50% increase in speed. Unless I've misunderstood how they think it is possible, it would require a 100% increase in speed.
The speed of light in a vacuum is pretty fast but it comes a distant second to the speed of light in a marketing pitch.
The bucket effect is expected. The scoring system is designed to be an assessment the severity of an issue so, obviously, different types of issues with similar severities ought to end up with the same score.
I don't generally use the CVSS score on its own. It is worked out from other metrics, such as Access Vector and Confidentiality Impact, and I find these really useful for deciding what the potential risk is to our systems.
We once had a security audit from a firm that ranked their results as Critical, High, Medium and Low with absolutely no consistency as to how they chose the severity. They ranked nearly everything, even things with no actual security impact, as Critical or High, and would not justify that decision. CVSS is far, far better than that arbitrary system. It isn't perfect, however, as the article explains.
The article says everyone should be out by 10. I'm fairly sure the new rule is 11, although they have to make their last orders by 10.
The regulations themselves don't actually contain the phrase "substantial meal" and I reckon you can get away with serving cornflakes.
The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (All Tiers) (England) Regulations 2020 say that the meal must be "such as might be expected to be served as breakfast, the main midday or main evening meal, or as a main course at such a meal."
Most businesses, when starting, get cash from investors and use it to pay for losses until they start to make a profit. Tesla has done this on a grand scale, having received 6.618 billion USD from investors (as of 31st December 19, unaudited). If you include investments received by its subsidiaries, it is 8.11 Billion.
At this point, it is hard to know whether Tesla will be successful in the business of selling electric cars. It has already proved to be very successful in the business of selling that dream to investors.
I think COKE (and by extension, Coke) IS a registered trade mark.
In the EU, registered mark EU002091940 protects the name from being used for the relevant class of goods:
Class 32 Beers; mineral and aerated waters and other non-alcoholic drinks; fruit drinks and fruit juices; syrups and other preparations for making beverages.
It also protects the name from being used in a wide range of less obvious products, including edible birds' nests. If you try selling "Coke" birds nest soup, you can expect a letter from their lawyers.
There are other registrations for the same name, presumably covering even more obscure product classes.
In December, I ordered some Intel NUCs, only for our supplier to cancel the order in January due to an unexpected chip shortage. They couldn't source the i5 or i7 parts, so I had to settle for i3s.
Maybe our supplier is to blame for accepting an order they couldn't fill, but it demonstrates that the shortage is affecting the iX family, as the article suggests.
I read the article and then it took me a while to figure out why you need more time on amber if you are turning. It has nothing to do with coming out the other side of the junction.
It is because, after a split second of reaction time, you need to make a decision about whether to go or stop. If you are going straight, you have the choice of proceeding at full speed, or stopping. The formula is designed so if you are the critical distance away, you have time to either stop at the line, or pass it at the expected speed. If you are further away, you have to stop. If you are nearer, you have to continue.
If you are going to turn at the junction, you have the choice between stopping, or decelerating to make the turn. If you are decelerating, it will take longer to reach the stop line than it would at full speed, so you need extra time.
"Tsohost - our hosting company - disconnected our Lemonrock server from the Internet early on Monday 10th June 2019. They did this without warning, and later claimed that they had suffered a cyber-attack."
