Re: Don't worry, it's only money
They're looking out for the EU. That's their job. If we hadn't been conned into leaving they'd be looking after us, too.
Nobody is making it hard for us but us.

It is a shame. I had a Nokia Lumia 800 which I loved, and a Lumia 1020 which was an improvement in every way. Then Microsoft killed Win8, lost Here Maps and when upgrade time came around they simply didn't have a viable phone for me.
Gone are the days of the sublime Lumia 928, now they have.. what?
I bought a Huawei P9 instead.
"Sounds as though it's only if you're using it to commit or conceal a crime, that 'new language' doesn't seem to cover use of VPN for legitimate purposes."
Whoever uses a fraudulent computer network protocol address (IP address) by using a false address or a third-party address by any other means for the purpose of committing a crime ,or preventing its discovery

I saw this and assumed it was just a wind-up. You know when your dad turns up at a party wearing MC Hammer harem pants demanding that...
...look,I'm making this up. I was trying to think of an analogous moment which is comparable to that horrifically embarrassing email. There isn't one.
Microsoft have reached peak cringe, fam.

By the way, the Conservatives' own 2009 white paper - "Rolling Back Labour's Surveillance State" - has been removed from their website.
I had a Lumia 1020 which I couldn't fault - except for its numerous faults (it went in for repair 7 times).
WinPhone is effectively dead in the water now - 8.1 had real promise. Someone at Microsoft needs shooting.
I bought a Blackberry Classic, which I can't fault. I really do love it - but Blackberry is effectively dead in the water now, etc
I don't want the fragmented, ad-filled mess of Android and I'm not mortgaging the grandmother simply to get this year's clone of last year's Apple.
So I'm stuffed.
I will, eventually. My laptop* started out on 8.04 Hardy Heron and it's been upgraded to every LTS since.
Nothing serious has broken yet. It's interesting to see how many upgrade cycles the OS can go through without any catastrophic occurrences.
I do stay away from interim releases and betas though.
(*I moved the HD to a new laptop during 14.04, try that with Windows)
