User worked with wrong app for two weeks, then complained to IT that data had gone missing

Re: TBH

So TRUE

When will people learn: If anything can go wrong, IT WILL!

The person that didn't allow for that possibility in the first place is the CRETIN, not the user. They are users for a reason, otherwise they would be developers.

State Broadcasting

If GB want to have a State Broadcasting service, the state should pay for it. -simples

The whole idea of a license to watch TV is considered ludicrous by a lot of the world.

The BBC should be free to pursue commercial route to market, e.g TopGear-Tomtom, that was a good idea but demolished by stupid BBC contact rules. Its DG and board should be sacked, as its wasted every commercial opportunity to exploit its best content e.g. Top Gear, Dr Who (10 yrs in no mans land due to D.G. stupidity), Horizon, and others, in addition to its documentaries.

Why should the population pay a tax for simply having a TV.

The BBC is a last century enigma that should be put in a museum.

HMRC's IR35 tweaks have 90% of UK's IT contractors up in arms

saabpilot

Re: It's not just about indvidual contractors

Unfortunately the average contractor cant afford the international tax lawyers required to setup a chain of parent shell companies in off shore locations and pay tax experts to use dodgy mechanisms like "loyalty fees" to extricate money tax-free to those off-shore tax havens. like Amazon Starbucks Google IBM et al do.

They are lucky if they can by into a second-hard car reselling business that runs with negative profits.

Re: @Rono666

Yes THEY DO!

They pay: road-tax, NI, PAYE (just like you) and Corporation Tax as well (something you don't have to pay).

So get YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT, before posting garbage here and acting like a twat!

email finally

just got my email from Lastpass

We wanted to alert you that, recently, our team discovered and immediately blocked suspicious activity on our network. No encrypted user vault data was taken, however other data, including email addresses and password reminders, was compromised.

We are confident that the encryption algorithms we use will sufficiently protect our users. To further ensure your security, we are requiring verification by email when logging in from a new device or IP address, and will be prompting users to update their master passwords.

interesting use of other data by them.

Lastpass get your act together.

Well well, the corruption does on and up

Why am I only finding out about this from the PRESS.

We all should have had notification under Disclosure rules, morally if not in law.

Let hear your justification for paying customers to continue their subscription.

Moffet MUS GO

Agreed both plot hole the size or planets and timeline errors.

Underdeveloped storylines (im being polite here) characterisation that would befit a failed script writer.

then the usual moffet trick of a random rabbit out of the hat to get him out of the deadend he's written himself into.

I (avid fan- except for the McCoy yrs) ) normally would make an effort to see DrWho but this series has just left me cold I really couldnt care if I watch it or not.

Next plot line for the Dr -- KILL MOFFET painfully as possible.

UK ICT classes killing kids' interest in tech

cloud-9 not os-9

How many Technology teacher is schools would even know how to wire up a scope to do vector graphics let alone how to make the anaogue board, in the first place. Given the budget - total lack of for what used to be called ITD information Technology and design. which was the intergartion of 4 separate subjects when i was in skool.

ie MetalWork+WoodWork+TechnicalDrawing+Electonics into one subject hence 3/4 of the timetable recovered for "better subjects" you then remove the lathes drills etc cos the schhol cant afford the cost of speacial equipment and qualified teachers and insurance.

Then remove the soldering irons so the poor little darnings dont burn themselves and the parent sue the school - gotta be loadsa more money than the dole.

So then make the whole thing a very booooorrrrring paper exercise based around a well known project planning tool from billy boy - and hey youve turn a teenager into a " non technical Project Manager" omg have we got toomany of them in this world already.

But given everything is now made in china, does this matter ? State Skools only produce dole forder and middle managment types anyhow.
