It is the land of the free after all. /s
At three times the initial cost?
It's still NTL under the VM logo, shit as ever.
Ditto, being forced to pay for that bunch of ***** * ** * ***** really pisses me off.
Ditto, same argument with My MP, even wrote a huge open letter to the bastard. Ignored it completely, and voted for it.
I ended up by helping fund the legal challenges to it. More than I have ever done for any political party.
Until the police are properly accountable for their actions, then they are nothing more than thugs and bullies in government issued uniforms. Don't believe me, try stand up for your rights (particularly the right to remain silent) next time you have an encounter with them, go on, and enjoy the jail time.
Ditto, Seagate? Never. Burnt way to many times.
Photography is not a crime. There is no offence for taking photo or filming in a publicly accessible place. (With exception of Official Secrets Acts but that is always very well signed posted..) The most they can do is ask you to leave. They cannot order you to delete what you have taken, only a judge can. So maybe you nearly got falsely arrested by some bully with a badge, but you were in no way committing a crime.
Politician, and especially Liebour Politicians seem to hate the idea of due process.
The Virgin stuff bugs the hell out of me. What can be done about it?
Me too. Why are we being discriminated against by google? We should totally sue. /s
Ditto, bunch of lying bastards.
Yep, and the twats in power in the UK taking copious notes.
I have donated to the Liberty & The Civil Liberties Trust for this, and again now for their further legal action. I have also written my turd of an MP, told him what I am doing, and they he can either rip up the snoopers charter, or face never getting a vote from me again, plus of course I have beem and will continue to bad mouth the undemocratic expletive with what he has failed to do at every appropriate opportunity. So please write your MP, there is a website and everything that makes it easy, and tell them that you have along memory, so come election time, if the snoopers charter is not ash, your vote will not go their way.
That is not new, always have been overly litigious.
Just like with the snoopers charter, they will exempt themselves from it.
> wilfully neglects to perform his duty and/or wilfully misconducts himself to such a degree as to amount to an abuse of the public's trust in the office holder without reasonable excuse or justification"
AH "reasonable", the word the wankers in power use all the fucking time to justify the increasing shitty actions of the police. I fucking hate the law.
> I assume it's legal for police in the UK to lie
Technically they are not, "Misconduct in public office", but as the CPS are in bed with the police, they get away with it.
Very *Impotent Prick
But they deserve it. At least for the Maplins in Reading. Most unhelpful bunch of tards I had ever come across.
They will just appeal and get a judge who is clueless. Much like the oracle vs. google lawsuit. 1st judge got it right, the rest didn't.
> . I'm surprised that the judge or even the forensics folks didn't rip the CIO a new one
I'm not. When I worked IT admin, management (not just from one company) would frequently "let someone go" with out informing us. For the most part we were lucky in that the only damage done was a deleted mailbox (recoverable) and a mouse lead being severed (£3 to replace). And sure, after I would then have a chat, the next few dismissals we were informed just before the meeting, but inevitably it slipped again after a few months, or new managers. Rinse and repeat.
> I simply cannot understand why anyone is afraid of being ID checked.
What is the point of having right if you don't stand up for them? "If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear" only works if you trust those in power. From the past 20 years of politics, the people in power are the last people to trust in any way what so ever. Corrupt, lying scumbags, and Blue ISIS just keeps them in power. No thank you.
>Or better yet, involves immersing your fingers in pineapple juice for long periods of time...
Tom Scott tried that on his youtube channel. Did not turn out well. 2nd degree burns...
As usual, the CPS couldn't give a toss about what is actually in the public interest. Corrupt cops, leave em, extraditing citizens abroad, oh yea, totally with that. The CPS should be scrapped in it's entirety as it as proven to be nothing more than the oppression arm of increasingly authoritarian governments.
2003 has more than enough for home users. To this day I still swear at the ribbon and the new flat UI's at work.
> Perhaps he could have made an introductory video, showing himself or a friend using a computer and pointing out the 'important bits' and how they are used.
Nice idea in principle Frank Ly, but in practice, I have tried to train people who could watch someone perform the most simplistic task, (move the mouse and push the button) and be utterly unable to replicate the task without massive amounts of instructions and reassurance. Then once they have finally mastered the task, and need to repeat it the next day to actually open an application, the mouse is yet again scraping across the screen. I kid you not.
> Call it what you want. Free country.
Yes, but as a factual organisation, you should really know that generally it's is not known as the sterile "celebgate" name, but as "The Fappening" from slashdot to reddit to the piratebay.
Tell them to go fuck themselves. Fucking self interested spying cunts.
They patched Azure, and absolutely stuffed many of our customers installs to the point we have had to wipe and reinstall from scratch.
Are we forgetting that TB made sure us in the UK cannot have privacy? We have to give up our encryption keys to the authorities if they ask, and we can just about have a lawyer with us if we demand and demand and demand it. It's all very well criticizing the FBI, but the UK is already there. We have no rights, we are merely cogs in the machine to keep those in power in power.
>I was expecting mechanical transfer of data with a couple of tin cans to add voice transmission.
Me too, disappointed.
After 20 years working in IT, I was at a users desk, investigating a shitrix issue, and he showed me he had rebooted his computer by turning the monitor off and on, and it would still not connect. He was a recent graduate hire.
bLair started this when he allowed the police to keep money from fines, and now with talk of privatized company's being given the power of arrest, we are not far behind the gangs in uniforms that are ruining the US. Policing should never be done for profit.
Don't forget that thanks to Tony bLair saying police can keep money from fines, It's on the same path in the UK. Policing for profit. Another great nuLiebour legacy.
So, get wrongfully arrested, and the police are not held to account? Great democracy we have here.
The ASA are not fit for purpose. Never have been.
Google has become worse. Frequently when searching for a term, it points me to pages which do not have that term on them anywhere. Utterly maddening. Duckduckgo has become my second option for almost everything except when searching Microsoft related problems, when BING surprisingly gets the good results.
BT have been doing this for years... "Just a service call to check you are happy with your service, say while we are checking up, would you like these extra services?" despite the TPS. Come on ICO, close these fools down.
Not judging by the cases I have had to sit on. They lie and lie and lie, and then when proved to be lying by actual evidence, repeat the lie again in their summing up. CPS just give a shit about getting convictions however they can.
> But IMHO if you are stationary on public road with the handbrake on you can operate the phone as you see fit.
From personal experience; If the keys are in the ignition, they will ticket you.
And any so called accountability is laughable.
Of the late "free speech". God bless our benevolent overloads.
And yet the so call "police" in America engaging in similar entrapment is all legal and fine. Yea, USA is totally great!
I don't have an appetite for about an hour after I wake, combined with 2 kids and the morning rush to get them ready for school, so by the time I get to work, I am hungry, with only junk around for the vending machines. So I tried Huel off the back of this. Managed to find 2 minutes to dump water and powder into the blender take it to work with me. Not always a pleasant meal, but it fills me till lunch.
However, after 2 months of weekday Huel breakfasts, I have to report that I am feeling much healthier, more alert, and my old friend morning glory has returned after disappearing at when a hectic family life became the norm. Co-incidence perhaps.
I think that will be continuing with it.
Write your MP, tell him/her what a sh1t they are for snoopers charter. And done stop. Every month, remind them what utter arse's they are for letting this law stand.
> Next up I guess, then, will be the War On VPNs.
And if they ban VPN providers, I will get a cheap VPS somewhere that respects privacy, set it up as a personal open VPN server, and they will still be seeing nothing from me. If this act does ever come into law all they will see from me is connections to VPN's, youtube, netflix, and prime. And the only votes I will cast are for candidates who will repeal this act. I have written my MP and said as much as well.
Is that it has done in secret, without public oversight. I could not write to my MP, refer to page x of the document and explain why its a good/bad idea. And that is wrong.
With hookers and blackjack...
