Blimey! Maybe they have taken notice? Or is that being too generous?
As of a few seconds ago, this is what I get when attempting to connect

I don't think it necessarily follows that they're storing your old password.
If I understand you correctly, it simply means they record when it was last changed.
It *might* mean they are comparing hashes of your current and old passwords, but that doesn't require them to keep the password itself.
New Scientist covered this particular point in their "Guide to the cool science bits" in the episode
"Cameo-companion Madame Vastra, a member of the super-evolved reptile species the Silurians, finds it much easier to hold her breath, claiming she can store oxygen in her body to breathe later. It turns out that's actually true, at least for monitor lizards, which have bird-like air sacs."
Reg report: "However, Shabet says she lives in America and has no intention of exporting the device."
Linked TV station report: "The iPad was to be a gift for her cousin who lives in Iran"
Unless she thinks that sending it to her cousin in Iran somehow doesn't count as exporting it to Iran?
Sounds like the Apple Store employee probably made the right call if he overheard her saying she was sending it to Iran.
XQD is the new format adopted by the CompactFlash Association to replace CompactFlash
Sony are just the first out of the blocks getting it to market.
"Voyager 2 remains the only spacecraft ever known to have visited the outer planets Uranus and Neptune"
Is this to cover the possibility that LGMs have visited Uranus and Neptune, or that NASA, the Soviets or China sent some undercover space missions there that we haven't been told about yet?

Amazingly, riding more than two abreast is not actually illegal. If you care to read the link you provided it's an advisory note ('should not' rather than MUST NOT) as explained in the introduction to the Highway Code.
The Highway Code also suggest that cyclists 'should' wear a helmet. You might know that it is not illegal to ride a bicycle without one.
Maybe you should re-read your copy and understand its language this time.
Sure, it may not help your chances when establishing liability in the event of an accident and it's not something I would normally do myself, but it's not breaking the law to ride more than two abreast.
Red light jumpers do piss me off, though.
Strange that. I wonder what the Home Office's own researchers say?
"Furthermore, it has become evident that following the introduction of CCTV, support for its use decreased. This was shown not to be the result of concern over issues relating to civil liberties and privacy, but there is a suggestion that support has declined in step with reductions in people’s perceptions of the camera’s effectiveness; fewer respondents believed the cameras would reduce crime." [p58]
"In short, [CCTV] was oversold – by successive governments – as the answer (indeed the ‘magic bullet’, Ditton and Short, 1999) to crime problems." [p116]
"Assessed on the evidence presented in this report, CCTV cannot be deemed a success. It has cost a lot of money and it has not produced the anticipated benefits." [p120]
My iTunes Library is nudging 100 GB with everything ripped at 192 kbps AAC, like the AC earlier, it's all ripped from CDs that I own [hint: second hand CDs are often quite cheap].
I'd surely love to be able to keep that lot in a non-lossy format on my iPod, which hovers with less than 100 MB free a lot of the time.
1 TB should just about do it.
The default behaviour in all versions of Mac OS when dragging files between volumes is to *copy* files (i.e. leave the originals in place), not move them (i.e. copy to the target and then delete the source).
I'm fairly sure this dates back to the Finder that shipped with the Mac 128K in the mid 80s.
Most Mac users would drag the file onto another volume and then delete the original afterward to make space on the source drive.
If true, it's not a pretty bug, but the number of people who even know that you can Command-drag and move (delete the originals) still less those who use it regularly, must be fairly small. The subset of those who actually encounter the bug and suffer data loss must be tiny.
