It also needs feeds from the likes of the BBC so that it can generate fake news rants

Earlier on today I had cause to access a streaming music service(**) that I hadn't used for a while. As part of the process I had to re-validate my account, and to do so, they asked me for the answer to a secret question (which I'd never set up). Fortunately there was a link on the same page to set the answers to my 3 secret questions. LOL what a fail. Anyway, there is no way I am going to give them my mum's maiden name (which is a real stupid question as my sister knows the answer to that, and the name of my first school, and the name of my first F*** ....) WTF WTF WTF. But even if I could chose the questions, what if these muppets got hacked? Then everyone would know my questions and answers.
It wouldn't let me in unless I provided some answers to some obvious questions. In the end I gave up and gave the answers 1Banana! (*), 2Banana!, 3Banana! It seemed happy enough with these. From now and I reckon that I will use the same answers for all my non-essesial web sites.
(*) I never realised my mum's maiden name was 1Banana!
(**) optical melodies
(***) Don't ask, but it wasn't my sister
"How long does the charge last and how it is charged?"
And what happens if you try to charge it from the mains without using some kind of AC to low voltage DC adapter*.
(*Don't try this at home, try it at someone else's home, someone who is daft enough to have bought one of these locks)
Copyright only exists because it is easy to make copies of a work. Who made that possible? Scientists and Engineers, that's who! I wonder how many of these people made big bucks out of their inventions, the inventions that made the recording industry possible? Without these guys, musicians would have to rely on live performance to make any money, Just like they did prior to the 20th Century.
On Sunday the 15th April, a 50m-110m rock 2018 GE3 whizzed past the Earth at 1/2 the distance to the Moon's orbit. If it had hit, the estimated blast would have been about 15 megatons. On its own, not an extinction event, but what with the bad vibes in Syria that weekend, if it had hit, it could have spooked some president (take your pick!) into pressing the big red button. The thing is, this rock wasn't spotted until 20 hours before its closest approach, not long to forewarn the authorities.
When I read "... front door key off the bunch of keys ...", I remembered I still had the key for the front door of my late mother's house on my key ring. I don't need it anymore as we've just sold the house. It was a somewhat poignant moment taking the key off my key ring.
I am also surprised.
If someone has had their files locked, then their PC must have been infected by malware. That malware will still be there after the PC is unlocked. I see no reason why it couldn't lock the files again, say in 6 months time. If the mark is dumb enough to pay once, they may well pay up a second time. Farming is much easier than hunting.
So what happened? No idea if the booster that was furthest from the booster landing cam actually landed. The video feed cut before they landed, and the booster that was furthest from the cam looked to be less than vertical <1 sec before landing. Did the centre stage land on the barge? I'm not saying this wasn't awesome, because it was, but could SpaceX give a bit more transparency, please? Even if only one of the three 1st stages landed, I for one would class that as a success.
I've never understood why people get tats, for starters there is the pain.
Then there is fact that in ten years time "I luv Tracy" doesn't seem so cool now that you're married to Trevor (and for the record it was actually Tracey with an e!)
As for those who get some unintelligible script tattooed down the side of their torso, (Mr Beckham?). What if, despite the tattoo artist saying it meant "We all live in harmony", it actually said "I'm a F*****g T**t"?
Maybe a simple "Mum" would safe. Well yes, that is until the day you bludgeon her to death in an attempt to inherit her fortune. After that, having "Mum" tattooed on your upper arm might be a problem.
Please don't do it, buy a dog instead. Whilst a dog isn't just for Christmas, it isn't for life (hopefully) .
I've never had a FB account, so in theory FB can' do me harm. The trouble is, how many prospective employers and others walk away because I don't have a FB account? What am I hiding? Most likely I will never get the chance to explain why I don't have a FB account as I never hear from them.
Once its been recycled (as it were) I'd have no problem using what's left of my finest Arabica to moisten the string. Though I'd suggest using a pot shaped container to collect the fluid. I wouldn't recommend applying the fluid directly to the string, just in case someone makes a call and it activates the ringer, but then again, if that's your thing, go for it.
