Re: Oh so familiar
Not much use if the supplier is not UK based though.

> I think they might have used something other than regular Li-Ion because it is a lot heavier than the original and looks better constructed.
Sounds like they are using a safer chemical composition assuming the capacity is the same.
Not all Li-Ion are the same. There are much safer types available but they are bigger and heavier.
Trying to fax over a voip connection is a bit of a minefield. It can be done and works reliable over a good connection using G711. However using other codecs or a poor connection and it won't work.
You would be better off porting the fax number to a provider which offers a fax to email and email to fax service.
I have a cheap Cubot android phone which is dual sim.
Both sims are active for incoming calls.
Two signal strength indications are shown in the top bar.
When you use the dailler you have two dial buttons.
If a 3rd party app dials a number you get a pupup asking you which you wish to use.
You can select which sim to use for data however only the first sim is enabled for 3g.
A voip provider unless its a very small one is highly unlikely to be using ISDN connections. Most likely they are using a SS7 interconnect so the voip provider is able to provide whatever network number and callerid they wish when placing the outbound call.
There are services such as skype which allow a mobile number to be used as the callerid but these are always first validated. There is an ofcom guideline NICC ND1016 which states that a callerid which is set by the carrier should be correct so that a call made back to that number should reach the original caller. So whatever telco the register used for this testing was technically in breach of this regulation. They probably got permission to provide the particular number in their testing but the fact remains whichever telco is allowing other to hack voicemail using this method could get into trouble.
Any mention of how much it dropped in other countries or what the trend was in total?
It sounds to me like they are just manipulating the stats to make it look like what they are doing is having an effect.
In reality people who's ISP blocks access will just use something like TOR which will make them appear to come from a different country most likely anyway. So it will make it look like people accessing it within the UK are fewer but greater in other countries.
Were people really that stupid?
Its an exchange so you put money in, exchange it for bitcoins and then take them out as soon as you can. If you have a large transactions then break them up into smaller ones and let one complete before starting another.
Leaving money in there was always asking for trouble. http://www.antipope.org/charlie/blog-static/2014/02/schadenfreude-1.html gives a good summary.
The "transaction malleability" just allows you to perform a transaction and then when it had been confirmed change the details of that transaction id so that when the sender goes back and looks at it, it appears as though it didn't get confirmed. That cant be used to steal money from an account which you have no authority to send bitcoins from to start with.
"The box only holds 3TB - USB sticks will hold more and you can carry them in your pocket"
I have seen 64MB USB sticks at a reasonable speed for just under £25 each. So you would need about 50 of them costing about £1200.
I have a better idea which is cheaper and takes up less space. Its called an external hard disk...
The lack of epub format is really a non issue. Download http://calibre-ebook.com/ and you can convert from many formats. Converting from pdf even works very well. You can also convert sites such as the bbc news and theregister to a magazine and have it sent via email automatically.
