UK households hit by 1.8m computer misuse offences in a year

Eh?

The data suggests people don't tend to bother reporting computer viruses to the police, with just 3.7 per cent of people informing law enforcement

And 3.7 per cent were told to "bugger off and stop wasting our time. Do we look like a IT support company?"

"The Doctor is criminally underpaid. The guy who plays Charlie from Casualty (who's been in it since the beginning) gets about twice as much as Peter Capaldi. Shocking."

Nothing to do with the Fact that Holby / Casualty are weekly shows, not a short series then?

"This isn't how much they earn in total.... "

Well if you work one hour a week doing say a local BBC radio show and then earn £100m a year selling books about teabags, then why should it show that as part of this?

Re: That's nice*. How do I completely uninstal OneDrive?

Uninstall OneDrive in Windows 10

Select the Start button, type Programs in the search box, and then select Add or remove programs in the list of results.

Under Apps & features, find and select Microsoft OneDrive, and then select Uninstall. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Re: A use for AI at last

There are billions of blocked SMS messages and phone calls every year, you just don't hear about it.

However how many people ACTUALLY report them instead of just moaning?

Not hard, on a mobile just forward the text to 7726 (SPAM) except 3 who have to be different 37726.

Also register with TPS and SilentCall Gard (yuk).

Why is it PC, to a have a lead character with two hearts, from an alien planet, that changes appearance completely every single time to change gender?

It could be argued that the likes of Voyager were just spin offs to tick the PC brigade boxes without upsetting the hardcore fans.

I personally don't give a toss who does it, so long as it's entertaining. But then again, I've never been one for worrying about who stars in what.

I couldn't name 99% of actors in films, as I think it's pretty unimportant in the grand scheme of things.

Burglary in mind? Easy, just pwn the home alarm

Lost all faith...

Re: This is California. In July.

"Burglar alarms do nothing but let the burglars know who has shit worth stealing."

Actually you ask most (ex)burglars and they will say an alarm is a deterrent,

Take two identical houses.

One with (possible) alarm, one without.

Given all other features are identical (doors, windows, surround visibility), which one will they hit.

100% the one without, every time.

Even dummy boxes will do the job, providing they are the same as the real thing. If you don't believe it, see how much ADT dummy alarm boxes sell for.
