  1. I'm accessing via phone or tv browser only until I'm sure everything resecured. My laptop was new and is only got the basic virus stuff on there was just getting around to installing our full system. I don't know if it makes any difference just don't want to put the forum or my stuff in jeopardy because I'm still too ignorant in areas. Although like most areas discussed here am wising up rapidly.
  2. Yeah. I think the hackers took one look at my email and decided only a complete nob would have their full name in their email address (or is it ??? Mwahaha) and therefore tried to hack my password thinking it'd be cinch...
  3. I'll have to rewatch that. I dont recall that bit x
  4. Hah! Some chap at our allotments told me to borrow a book called the A code or something from the library. He said "be careful though....They log the name of whoever borrows it and the government gets the log." And wiggled his eyebrows conspiratorialy Husband piped up that " that ship has long sailed my friend" ...And carried on digging the carrots.
  5. Kick 'em while they are down why dontcha?
  6. Aww your name Ink isn't all written in RED anymore. That was all v sexy ;-)
  7. Got skin in the Game ? MENU monday may 18 2020 News CORONAVIRUS Huawei’s ‘£5m sponsorship deal with Imperial College’ Huawei is helping to fund Imperial College research by paying for a superfast 5G network, it was reported ALY SONG/REUTERS Nicola Woolcock Monday May 18 2020, 12.01am, The Times The tech giant Huawei has struck a £5 million sponsorship deal with a British university, it was claimed yesterday. Imperial College London, whose research into coronavirus is used to inform government policy, is setting up a tech campus in west London. Huawei, which is based in China, will help to fund it by paying for research and facilities and a superfast 5G network for the university, The Mail on Sunday reported. More than a dozen scientists at the university have contributed to the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies, Whitehall’s pandemic response unit. The rolling out of the 5G network has led to fears about espionage and there are also concerns over China’s handling of the Covid-19 outbreak. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/huaweis-5m-sponsorship-deal-with-imperial-college-l36g6cftq
  8. Sara Cuoni article in RT today https://news.google.com/publications/CAAqBwgKMJz93AIw0JIc?oc=3&ceid=US:en "Italian lawmaker demands Bill Gates be ARRESTED for ‘crimes against humanity’... But WHY?"
  9. Are you referring to me? Given I posted my grandfather was Jewish? And me and TS don't always agree on the subtleties.
  10. But seriously. Every time something bad happens here I learn massively new good things. Last 24 hours it's computer security. So thanks Danny - seriously mean it even if I'm 're reading it to try and get my head around it.
  11. Well. That's cheered me up. ?
  12. I had this earlier but the stuff I was pasting had hyperlinks in it so I removed that and it worked. Might just be an extra layer of security fttb
  13. I have one of my own. "I keeps it in its room and I feeds it" It does not rub the lotion on its skin as it stinks. It plays its fortnite game. I think it is still alive as I can hear it trolling other players.
  14. I'd remind him you might have to sell your soul to the coronavirus testing just to keep him in kibble (or whatever it is teenage boys eat) and if he doesn't stop stomping you'll unplug the Wi-Fi. ?
  15. Got a top tip from a mate today. They reckon best time to go to the supermarket is 8 o clock on a Thursday. All the muggles are at home banging their pans ;-)
  16. There was plenty of footage from the RT news network showing how peaceful everything was. It was posted here before the hack x
  17. Sensible article from today's Sunday Times The lesson of Covid-19 is brutally simple and applies generally to public regulation. Free people make mistakes and willingly take risks. If we hold politicians responsible for everything that goes wrong, they will take away our liberty so that nothing can go wrong. They will do this not for our protection against risk, but for their own protection against criticism. The lockdown was originally justified as a temporary measure to spread coronavirus infections over a longer period. This was to allow time for the NHS’s critical care capacity to catch up. Hence the slogan “Protect the NHS”. It was never much of a rationale. The NHS is there to protect us, not the other way round. How could its unpreparedness possibly justify depriving the entire UK population of its liberty, pushing us into the worst recession since the early 18th century, destroying millions of jobs and hundreds of thousands of businesses, piling up public and private debt on a crippling scale and undermining the education of our children? Since the prime minister’s broadcast last Sunday, the lockdown has found a new rationale. The government has dropped “Protect the NHS” from its slogan. The reason is plain from the paper it published the following day. The NHS is not at risk. This is partly because the government has done an outstanding job in increasing intensive care capacity, and partly because the threat to the NHS was always overstated. The critical care capacity of the NHS has nearly doubled since January, even without the 4,000 or more additional beds in seven temporary Nightingale hospitals. Around the top of the spike in infections, on April 10, 41% of NHS general acute beds were empty. Only 51% of acute beds were occupied by a Covid-19 patient. The current figure is 20%. The Nightingale hospitals stand empty. These are government figures. Today, the lockdown is only about shielding us from the risk of infection. This raises serious questions about our relationship with the state. It is our business, not the state’s, to say what risks we will take with our own health. We are not fools or children needing to be told by ministers what is good for us, and forced by police officers to do it. We should not need to consult ministers, as the first member of the public to phone in to the daily press conference did, about whether she was allowed to hug her grandchildren. The usual answer is that by going out and about we may infect other people. But that no longer works as an excuse for coercion. Those who do not want to run the risk of being infected can isolate themselves voluntarily. They will be no worse off than they are under the current compulsory regime. The rest of us can then get on with our lives. The continuance of the lockdown is particularly odd given that in its latest paper the government accepts that, whatever we do, Covid-19 is likely to be with us long term. So unless it plans to keep the lockdown in place for ever, all that it achieves is to put off the moment when we have to face the risk anyway. The prime minister told the House of Commons on Monday that his new so-called plan was workable because the British would use their common sense. In that case, why not allow them to do so by leaving the decisions to them? Instead, we are resorting to law, which, because it requires exact definition, will always cover very many things that are perfectly harmless. Thus it was OK to go for a walk in the park but not to sunbathe. It is OK to drive to the Lake District but not to visit your second home. It is OK to meet one person but not two, and OK to do it in the front garden but not in the back. This kind of thing is arbitrary and absurd. It discredits the law as well as those who make it. So how has the government ended up in this unsustainable position? The answer is that, having originally embarked on a sensible policy that would have avoided a lockdown, it did a 180-degree turn on the afternoon of March 23, without thinking of the wider implications. It was in a blind panic provoked by Professor Neil Ferguson’s “reasonable worst case” of 510,000 deaths. Quite apart from the fact that a worst case is by definition an unlikely one, few scientists now support this figure. But it has had disastrous consequences. It pushed the government into making a decision that mocks our humanity and treats us all as mere tools of government policy. The government terrified people into submission by giving the impression that Covid-19 was dangerous for everyone. It is not. It attacks people with serious vulnerabilities. By most estimates, between 0.5% and 0.75% of infected persons die. Of those, 87% are over 65 and at least 90% have multiple causes only one of which is Covid-19, according to the Office for National Statistics. The death rate for those under 50 is tiny. For the overwhelming majority, the symptoms are mild. Yet Matt Hancock solemnly intoned that “if you go out, people will die”, in what was surely the high point of governmental hype. The prime minister’s broadcast was supposed to be his Churchillian moment. Instead, we beheld a man imprisoned by his own rhetoric and the logic of his past mistakes. The lockdown is now all about protecting politicians’ backs. They are not wicked men, just timid ones, terrified of being blamed for deaths on their watch. But it is a wicked thing that they are doing. Lord Sumption is a former Supreme Court judge and last year’s BBC Reith
  18. I'll copy it into today's news. As it was in today's news :-)
  19. Yes posted his article which is in today's Sunday Times earlier in the thread. Excellent.
  20. Been lurking as a guest whilst signed out (which doesn't feel right) as wasn't sure if my account was still messing up. I don't think it is, just coincidence. But this post really stood out. Explains a lot. Thank you.
  21. Yep. Something funny going on my end . Stuff slow and acting weirdly. Could be coindence but am logging out for safety for now.
  22. I dont think I posted that twice (deliberately). But let's see
  23. I just thought it was worth sticking a new today's news as I always get the feeling I'm being distracted and I like to pay attention to as many things as possible.
