Re: Consumer benefits?

Still we could all stumble round in the dark with no heating eating raw food until frost bite, food poisoning or falling down the stairs put us in a hospital that was lacking enough patients. Oh dear we don't have any of those.

We just deal in over priced half baked ideas that are no damned good.

Just how was this supposed to do anyone who pays the bills any good?

So the fact (not supposition) that a certain Thomas Mair, 53 is stated to have used the contents of such a book to build a device to kill Jo Cox does not blow a hole in your weak arguement. It is not just stupid master mind terrorists but feable minded bigots and dopes we have to worry about. I realise you made a sort of Trump sound bite but is that all there is to life and death?

Re: Conspiracy ..

With more time and probably more thought, those with the required mathematical skills have realised that the data was capable of even more in depth analysis. Every event has its own unique signature. Sometimes it takes a great deal of time to decipher the more archane aspects of the item. How many here would be able to put their hands on all the skills required? It is one thing to read the work of others and superficially accept or follow the text. It is quite another to be able to generate the original ideas that allowed the analysis to be developed.

Whatever is said and done, the dead are still dead and will not be recovered. No analysis can change that. The burning, unanswered question that remains is why did it happen at all?

Re: I will have to buy a car one day

My wife has a modern car, it is like being in a fairground ride with sensors pinging and complaining distracting the driver from what matters.

So it is with the 'let's sell more junk squad'. If there is a medical problem use medical grade hardware and check the stuff to the nth degree, plus do it in a suitable location. If there is no medical issue, then remember, children have survived since before the cave people era without crap electronics. Safety proofing homes is another issue.

Note, medical places are very noisy, the wired sensors* are always falling off, they stick on but must be able to be removed without attached skin. The first few times you are there your insides want to join the outside world when the buzzers go off and the red lights burn. (You know some will die, but which ones and when?)

*Take care with the trailing wires, attendant tripping, infant strangulation and choking hazard for growing babies during unskilled user deployment.

Trying to Find a Point

I do not use the underground and avoid London like one would a plague pit.

I try to follow what I assume to be the RMT advice namely;

Your better off by far if you can get where you are going by car.

In any case most places I go to are nowhere near any sort of station, many are miles from a bus stop.

However, tomorrow I will use 'flash and dash', flash the bus pass and dash on the bus to a hospital. Then I shall hope to repeat the process in the reverse direction until I can drive again.

To get the phone out of its inside pocket is hard work whereas extracting a card is optimised for my easy access.

Oh and the phone only does exactly what I need. No flashy, hand held hardware, as I don't have three or more hands .I really don't want the phone handy for every two bit work dodger to steal. So please remind me, is there a point to wave your money goodbye technology and if so, why I should go to the inconvenience of something that is harder work and has generally poor battery life?

Re: Judge Wendell Holmes

Basic understanding failure here.

Asking people to evacuate because of a fire issue is one thing. Some fool shouting fire will have people clambering over seats and other people in their haste to irrationally cause panic, if the fire does not do anything much the panic has and will kill people..

I was on a bus once, the conductor came half way up the stairs after the bus stopped and the engine died. He asked polity for everyone to please get off the bus, people started to grumble and shuffle, when he added because its on fire, the speed increased but without panic. Just shouting fire from some random place would have produced a different response.

(We all stood looking through the windows to see what had happened. A small bit of browned floor due to an exhaust blow, we were all disappointed.)

Re: How long until Google decides ...

My phone has no interest in apps, or other stuff; it makes calls so why would everyone have to care about car apps, bank apps, and for that matter the heating needs no apps, just fingers. Interestingly so do phones, unless they have good voice control as the my present one does via its Blue-tooth headphone. The front door uses weird metal things, called keys, (yes plural). So no risk of my home having insecure hardware to be used for remote DDoS, turning the heating up to full blast or down to arctic levels, etc.

I would still like to find a use for a phone of this type as obtaining good batteries for my old one is becoming very hard.

However, the price is something of a huge turn off.

WTF?

Re: If the last 4-5 years in IT security has taught us anything

OK, I have a few different fridges, one is 40 plus years old and the other two lasted a longish time and have just been replaced. Their replacements will likely be some way off in the future when I am unlikely to be interested. The heating thermostat is only 25 years old and probably good for at least another 25 ~ 50 years, so no hurry there.

The boiler controller was 25 years old and was only replaced when the boiler was done because the installers were here doing the job anyway. So far after almost a year I have managed to set the same programme for every day of the week, other things should be possible but (a) too damned difficult (the installer gave up and passed me the book) and (b) lacking in any point or purpose.

Now remind me why I should buy some things to make life more complex and which some scum bag, probably in Russia might be able to miss-operate more easily than I could when stood next to the heap of junk.

Best of all I really, really, do not need the crap.

@ HollyHopDrive No Evidence To Date

I am not sure that most people do not know that turning something on will increase their bill and I thought that under the Dumb Meter scheme you can have a drawer filler, oops sorry a monitoring device to watch as you turn things on and off.

I do not want to disagree with what you said because I think you are broadly right but we turn things on and use them because we want them to do something and turn them off when we are done. Watching drivers act like they are on a drag strip or tyre testing course suggests that many are not aware of the relationship between heavy right foot and fuel bills.

Large utility bills do have some impact but who wants cold water baths, weeks old unwashed clothing etc.? I am guessing not too many.

However, I agree that the present system is about as broken as it can be, while still being able to minimally function.

Re: Another Illustration of the Fact...

I am divided by this point.

Think about it if you worked for a company that would be adversely affected by a political policy promising to make their activity illegal. In that case it would be sensible to advise you that you might be directly impacted by the vote, as your job would exist any more.

Note in the carefully crafted example that would not be a threat, but a statement of fact.

In the VM case the 'costs' of Brexit appear marginal and within the range of business variables that a well run company should normally be expected to handle.

It used to be said that while the UK had the best justice system money could buy the US had the best police forces money could buy. The commercial terms might have adjusted slightly but the news clips do suggest that at least a part of the US police leave something to be desired, e.g. like brains and thought processes.

I huge improvement in recruiting and vetting appears to be needed so that a wide range of post holders understand what their job really is and their responsibilities for doing the role.

Only then tools should be supplied for use by trained, up-skilled and vetted staff for the purposes and only the purposes agreed.

Re: Automation....

This could be turned against those who automate. 'Crook Debt collectors Plc' might once have had an office somewhere. Just send them an invoice for say £10 which will not be paid, then send them a county court paper for the same address. That should tie them up for months as a CCJ should be an inconvenience to them as a business.

I had trouble changing the tariff with a well known mobile operator. Their web site is more like a useless sticky maze and whose telephone hindrance service offers nothing useful. I can see how their exploits go foul. I had to find an office with real people to start to unpick their mess. I had a further demonstration of how utterly useless they are today.Hopefully it will be sorted after more time has been wasted - perhaps I should bill them for mileage and wasted time.

What About Copper's one Big Advantage?

With copper, when the power cuts come calling the phone still works, computers, routers and phone charger do not. Just how would fibre to the building work when the power goes off?

Given the still dire state of radio communications, (think mobile telephone service) I would hate to have nothing to rely on in an emergency. My daughter uses her mobile, I always call back on the land line if something needs to be sorted out, the mobile is grade one rubbish for communications. Thanks are due to EE and O" for their perfect(?) deliverables.

About the only callers who can get through to me on my mobile when I am at home are the insufferable 'cold callers and fraud pushers'.

Re: Does paperless mean more time?

The alternative is the letter not coming through so you do not get the medicinal follow up without jumping through the hoops to get a secretary to send it out specially and you taking a copy to the practice to get what is required.

Doing it automatically via joined up electronics would be great if it cuts out the 2~5 months wait.

It would be nice if you did not have the papers sent to one satellite clinic and the patient to a different one so taxis have to drive across the country while you wait two hours.

No these are not fictional.

Throw in stopping consultants commiserating with patients who don't have inoperable fatal cancer on the basis of a scan they have not had because the notes apply to someone else anyway and you might get some progress.

And yes these are all true stories.

There are some success stories as well, e.g. digital scans being available when I saw surgeons in different locations who just brought up the images on the screen in front of them. If only that was universal.

Microsoft thought of the children and decided to ban some browsers

WTF?

Re: Lawsuit Time Again

Perhaps I am reading this all wrong, (rather than holding it all wrong). I am certainly feeling no desire to get rabid or hysterical.

MS, (whatever you think of them) provided a facility to users, (parental controls) which allowed the USER to try to profile THEIR machine account(s) to meet certain of their user needs. MS found that certain add-ons broke the profile and allowed actions that the USER might have expected to have blocked. So MS took steps to stop this bypass on those machines and accounts that had the parental controls switched on.

Can someone explain how this is not right?

MS are NOT saying you cannot use your browser of choice. They are saying that if the user wants a certain facility to work more closely as they expected, then MS have tried to align the performance with the user expectations.

Re: It's all just (encrypted) data

The message was that central action, e.g. by the ISP to offer a blocking service was prohibited, so let the kiddie porn and bandwidth wasting rubbish flow. Not what some want or need as they may not be able to roll their own DIY blocking as a local service. OK, you and some others can bully for you.

If the ISP can, (it is still not clear from my reading of the article) offer such blocking as available, opt in options then the damage will be limited. Maybe this phrase from the account is being misread by me; Many modern devices do not allow client-side blocking, including almost everything running on the Android platform. End quote.

That sound like a issue for some folks to me or can such bandwidth hogging rubbish be blocked before it burns through an allowance?

Re: Thoughts

While I have not seen the factories about which I fully accept you are totally qualified to speak, I have seen conditions here in the past which closely resemble those about which you spoke. Men (back then always men) driving crawler dozer devices over slag which had recently been tapped from a furnace. When you broke the surface it still glowed red hot as the blade pushed the 'rather warm' stuff about before it set solid. Or other locations where the machines proudly showed they had been built when Queen Victoria was still alive, hopefully you can imagine the rest of the conditions of the crumbling factories. Or see film of shipyard workers from when we built riveted ships, (there is a marker there to date when that was). Or casting iron products and knocking them out of the sand moulds before de-flashing them with a hammer and chisel or an angle grinder. Conditions were if anything worse and certainly no better.

What has changed is we no longer do such things we let someone else do the work and take the risks.

Your plastic parts maker is frankly ripe for a bit of automation, someone wrote of high earners designing goods in pleasant surroundings, fine. They should also design the production machine programs that will produce the damned things and let others do what we are still as a country trying to do, work in 'service industries', nice clean pressure free locations. Unless it is for example a fast food kitchen where the pressure is relentless, the temperature is high and the pay is still lousy. There are still loads of crap jobs going at minimum rate, which frankly need automating if we can train enough people to build and service the robots to run them.

It was going to be 'the end of the world' when hand looms and hand spinning was automated. Now we have more workers than ever so don't try the old 'automation kills jobs' trick. Dumbly exporting work kills jobs that is true.

I'll will make it simple, really poor management, poor pay and unskilled workers kills jobs faster than anything else.

The Power of Power

Some years ago in a somewhat far away land a switch location needed to be redecorated. So preparations were made and the work of re-painting started. This was in the days of the metal paint pot. Bus bars tended to be protected on the sides and lower surface, but often had little or no such protection on the top which was close to the ceiling anyway. In fact there was enough clearance for a full paint pot plus a bit of clearance. So the painter placed his paint pot on the nice shelf he found, the pretty two colour one with a space between the colours.

The predictable result was a high energy discharge of paint and a thrown can, plus a high velocity painter. The result was a catastrophic power loss. Crystal ovens lost power and burning paint added to the 'fun'.

It took days to get even some of the site working again, the crystals sat in their irregularly shut down locations were as reluctant to stabilise as their down stream components were to work. Synchronisation of the set up moved from essential to would be nice through to rebuild and start again. Slowly flaky services were restored on an almost no redundancy basis until new parts could be shipped in and brought into service. I never heard what happened to the painter but his place in some Olympic running team was though likely if anyone could ever catch up with him.
