Swedish Supreme Court keeps AssangeTM in Little Ecuador

Lost all faith...
Silver badge

Nope, it's a myth.

It's a UK building on UK soil where UK laws apply. The reason we don't just walk in is there is an understanding around the world that they are pseudo territories of the nation they represent and therefore exempt from local law enforcement.

The simple reason we don't go in, we would then have no moral high ground to complain when another country did the same and snatched our embassy staff for local law violations.

Think of it as a gentleman's agreement rather than law.

"Assange's legal team argued that his ongoing residence in London's Ecuadorian embassy is a disproportionate response to the investigation into his alleged crimes."

Nukes

"One non-starter SNP policy involving technology is its vehement opposition to a new generation of Trident nuclear submarines based on the Clyde."

We really should look at relocating these anyway, as at some point it may happen that the do get enough power to prevent them, so should plan a new base now.

And as they are so opposed to it, they should also be completely removed from any bidding process to build anything, and I mean anything to do with it.

"If those sort of letters were sent every month by Asda to everyone who did not shop with them, it would be considered a pretty serious criminal offence"

Well if I was forced to pay Asda £170 a year, if I chose to shop there or not, but in return I had the ability to have entire contents of the store for free, I would have no issue,

See your comparison falls flat on it's arse.

Re: Microsoft FAIL

FFS, you moan that MS don't stick to standards. They make a standards complaint one from ground up and still fucking moan.

Still supporting Netscape? Stil supoprt Chrome v1?

One is being depreciated, one is being introduced, what is so hard about that?

And why "join" another OS source project? So we can have identical browsers, with all the same features and inevitably either result in fighting, stagnation or being forced to accept features you don't want.

Re: Oh yawn, here we go again.

Puhlease. Are you saying that the humans cannot memorize passwords?

Not when one wants 10 alphanumeric, excluding special characters

The other want between 6 and 15 and include special characters

Another wants more than 10 including special character, except for spaces, comma's, full stops

Another wants less than 8 but must contain at least 1 uppercase, 1 number, 1 special character

Another wants more than 15

Another want 10 but must contain at least 2 numbers and 2 uppercase

And so on and so on.
