The next stage
The next stage in the 'war on terror' will be mandatory goverment oversight and access to Bitcoin etc. so that the miscreants can be tracked down. Does anyone know if they can already do this?

"... the first time that they will be subject to legislation on online bullying."
How does legislation work for social media providers who are not based in the UK? Who don't have any UK corporate presence? I realise that this is aimed at Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, who do have a corporate UK presence but it does seem to be legislation that could go wrong in the future.
She started in June last year and has been absent since May this year and they are keeping quiet about her. This might mean she had a two year contract and is in delicate negotiations for its early termination. What's that? You never had a two year contract with share options and bonus payments?
The MATE version in Stretch is 1.16.2. The MATE organisation has recently released version 1.18 and this will be available in Mint 18.2, probably before the end of June. I've no idea if Debian will update MATE in Stretch as time goes by.
I've been running Stretch for two months now and had no problems with it after manually migrating from Mint 18.1. The only problem is that in Debian, the MATE panels have a transient cosmetic problem associated with the drawers. This problem does not exist in Mint 18.1 with the same version of MATE. These types of problem have been in MATE for about five years now and the only good thing is that their severity seems to get less as time goes by. Anyway, it's only a little cosmetic thing.
Stretch works fine and I'd recommend trying it, in a VM or a spare hard drive.
Perhaps they could send full tankers on a slow, low fuel journey to a Mars orbit to act as refuelling facilities there?
I realise that you get into a diminishing returns situation but if I were on Mars and hoping to get back, I'd be a lot happier if I knew there was a fuel supply in orbit above me. Then again, maybe the first colonists would never expect to return to Earth.
I live in the UK but I often like to watch certain types of videos on YouTube made by people who live in a distant country. They brandish high powered rifles and extol the virtues of owning and firing such weaponry, with idealistic glee. I find myself wanting to try this and I'm thinking about travelling to this country to join one of these groups. Will I still be allowed to watch these videos and am I in danger of being put on some kind of watch list or having my passport confiscated?
"The £147 "fee" is payable by anyone who uses a TV to watch live news as it is broadcast, or who uses a tablet or desktop computer to stream it over the internet via BBC iPlayer."
I thought it was for all BBC broadcast output, not just news, if viewed live? It's three years since I had a TV licence so I may be behind the times.
"The carriers also want to increase the maximum height of building-mounted antennas from three to five metres above a building's envelope."
A fibreglass fake turret (or whatever) could be used to house the antennae. It would require some thought and some money though so it probably wouldn't happen.
If they're free to run cables across bridges etc., you just know that they'll do it in the neatest, tidiest and most careful way possible.
How did they do that? I'm sure I have a Hub 2 but I wasn't aware of it. Should I have been? It was some time last month that my internet connection started being slow and flaky. I fixed that by powering the hub down for a minute then turning it back on again.
