For people with enough space, I was thinking that a secure box outside our home would be a good idea to receive deliveries. Something like the coal bunker of days gone by. With some sort of standard on the e-lock that can be opened by a variety of retailers who you specifically grant access. Yes, there are obvious implementation problems, but i'd rather have my shopping left here than give someone access to my house or car.
The box could even be insulated or refrigerated for receiving deliveries of groceries.
There's always going to be someone who doesn't follow this advice (through ignorance or defiance) and they will try to keep their larger-than-smartphone-device (LTSD) in their hand-luggage. What happens at the final hand baggage screening - will the offending objects need to be placed in a disposal bin along with all the half-empty bottles of water and nail scissors???
If this is a credible security threat and later is extended to all airlines on all routes- it's going to be a bonanza for easyjet / ryanair as most passengers will now need to purchase check-in baggage.
Can anybody recommend a website where I can match a project I have in mind to available people?
Rather than engage a company, i'd like a person to be dedicated to this for about 4 months.
I have found freelancer.com, but are there any others? One with more people based in the UK.
This is terrible news. How in the name of sanity is this possible. The RN should be screaming bloody murder from the rooftops.
We are seeing the beginnings of some major power shifts in the world and we are likely to get caught with our trousers down. Disputes surrounding the spratly islands might turn ugly and draw in a whole load of countries and kick of WW3
BTW has australia got any aircraft carriers?
One thing I've learned in the IT sector is to never ignore a pooh-pooh. I knew a guy, who got pooh-poohed, made the mistake of ignoring the pooh-pooh. He pooh-poohed it! Fatal error! 'Cos it turned out all along that the guy who pooh-poohed him had been pooh-poohing a lot of other guys who pooh-poohed their pooh-poohs.
