Am I being too harsh?
The "accidental destruction" of evidence should set a legal presumption of guilt and require the defendants to prove their innocence.

There has to be personal responsibility but that has to extend beyond the test pilot if he had told people about "fixing" things then his manager should also face charges if there is a culture of corruption the GD CEO whoever responsible for allowing it should be charged. Corporate manslaughter is just a way of ducking out of your responsibility and hiding the guilty party. If a bean counter blocked the report then he / she should pay. .
It was a third party track and trace not NHS -- vaccine roll out which was NHS has worked well for the most part and I understand the NHS had its own trace and trace (primarily for STDs) that was ignored during the set up in spite of their competence. https://theconversation.com/coronavirus-why-did-england-ignore-an-army-of-existing-contact-tracers-140825 This was a major failing from day one.
At a guess -- he didn't attempt to connect to the meeting until the vote -- if he can't be bothered to take part and understand the issue then only connect when it is time to vote then it is an own goal and deserves no sympathy. If you connect ahead of time and thus checking everything is good as well as participating in what you think is an important debate you then have time to go to plan B or check who you should phone.
There is a good French proverb the absent are always at fault (wrong) - Les absents ont toujours tort.
Updated a FortiGate firewall in the data centre and watched it disappear. Mad rush to centre (2 hours away by car) to reboot it. I then implemented a script that reboots the firewall 5 minutes after a configuration is changed unless you save the running config. (I strongly recommend this to any budding firewall manager.) I you can save it your good if you can't you need the reboot to fall back. But remember don't get distracted after you made the changes as going for coffee or chatting to a colleague has resulted in many a reboot.
Whatever happened to the you know have five minutes to confirm everything is happy or I'll reboot and fall back to the previous configuration. Fortigate can be told to behave like this and Juno does it out the box probably a script or something could be added to cisco. Really cool except when you sigh with relief and go for a coffee forgetting to confirm and save.
Ah the memories, the electrics in our building being quite old (building no longer exists) meant that when one of our colleagues turned on the heater under her desk the circuit breakers would pop if people were working in the studio and us geek running to check UPS and server, and/or circuit breaker. Many black outs, and informative lectures -- it should be noted she is a lovely, generous person and a fantastic cook so forgiveness would be extended,
I know when things work we don't notice them but notice when they fail however it seems to me that when ever something is outsourced it goes titup. Can anyoone tell me of a contract that has worked? Keeping things in house seems to be the only way to stand a chance of getting what you want.
Pakora and chips with curry sauce -- bliss for a student in the late 70s.Spam fritters were good too but no mars bars back then.
It always struck me as a weird cultural difference, English fish and chip shops have cod, huss and other types of fish; but a Glasgow chippy has only one fish (further details unavailable) but also pizza, spam fritters, chicken, pakora, haggis, black pudding, mars bars the list goes on and on. Why?
As my french prof explained you use the maiden name because people get married then divorced then remarried ad infinitum and if you keep changing the surname everyone will get confused and official papers lost -- a bureaucratic nightmare will follow therefor logically you always stick with the name you got at birth to keep the paper work simple and prevent getting your pass lost. Either that or you can't divorce and remarry.
As I understand it GDPR requires opt in and doesn't consider failure to opt out as consent. It always defaults to the most private secure settings. So how can the gov. claim people have consented if they haven't opted in. Should the ICO get involved and fine Matt?
I'd of thought that MOD stuff not being on the internet i.e. along with data being locked inside “internal and contractual silos” making it “hard to access and integrate”. would be a good thing from a security perspective. We don't want some teen hacker accessing the polaris subs and playing wargames. Good hacking film.
I think they have concluded that as the uni is a bad faith actor so they now need to double check everything in case they missed something the first time round. In light of the actions of the researcher they can't be certain of the boundaries that were set and that nothing had been done previously. A bit belt and braces but in reality in IT security all anyone can say is I have not found an intruder / backdoor etc but there is no guarantee that there isn't one.
I suspect the domain name and IP restrictions are really making a point loudly. The people involved in maintaining the project know this isn't so much a block as a way of annoying and making the university aware that they overstepped the mark. Otherwise I imagine they would give a half hearted apology and then carry on as if nothing had happened.
A bit like ceefax and in graphics mode just as slow. But brilliant back in the 80s.
The French customs ah <old f**t mode>I remember it well --- along with the french "system D" (short for demerde or debrouille) -- the stamping of passports by customs was really interesting too, I had several stamps stating I had left France but none to say I had ever entered. </old f**t mode>
There are some good guys. I once destroyed the email server with a window's update (many moons ago.) The timing was to say the least extremely bad and email was vital to find out what was happening to people in a sensitive part of the world that was becoming unstable -- the boss and I did the disaster recovery in record time, we had put a notice on the server room door that said "We know" no interruptions -- a really good boss who has our backs.
