Or distribute some sort of Ransomware.
Legalizing Cannabis, overthrowing the snooping bill...

Prisoners built two PCs from parts, hid them in ceiling, connected to the state's network and did cybershenanigans

MP: "All those in favour?"

The petition will probably suffer a technical mishap, or something that doesn't stop our glorious leaders getting their way.
At least it got easier for law enforcement to fake confessions...
What about, I don't know, setting up netting over open areas of the prison?
I remember seeing an advert on TV for the Galaxy Note 7 a week or so ago, where it says that it can be submerged in water for around 30m and still be usable.

That being said, I do use American dates when naming files, as it helps order them better, rather than having the day order everything in an arbitrary way. E.g. 01.04.2016, 07.12.2016, 16.03.2016...
Re: Seems like good news?

I think I'll go back to OS/2.
It's in mIRC script. I'm sure someone could do better, though.
That's the idea, though.

What with all the NSA/GCHQ monitoring and all...
The Guardian said it would be visible for two weeks over December, I'm guessing that's no longer true? :<
Vote for another party and you're an extremist!
I was going to buy a PS4...
