Post Office Horizon Inquiry calls for compensation to be brought forward


A sad story

This is a story that really makes me want to cry. All those poor people literally crushed by a corporate monster.

Karma needs to come quickly for the absolute shysters who did this.

Windows 11 runs on fewer than 1 in 6 PCs


Windows 11... we've had enough.

We're a few months away from upgrading our 12,000 macOS devices to macOS 13... three words - Declarative Device Management:

Monzo is a great bank IMO.

Good riddance.
