Why would you want a bacon vending machine when there's a Greggs in every town in the UK? Ah, I suppose it's for use after 11 'o'clock

Re: They were not defeated
I don't really see how you are going to upset a drone with a pressure washer since they rely on the speed of a small flow of water to blast off the dirt. As soon as the water leaves the jet the pressure is zero but the speed is quite high so the cleaning power diminishes very quickly with distance and within less than a meter you will only get a fog.
Now, a fire hose with a 16mm nozzle at 6 Bar will do the job, if you can hold it.
Re: it makes more sense to not have FTTP
I am currently waiting to see how reliable overhead FTTP is. Here in France the whole village (one of only three in the department) is being connected to fibre. That is every house farm and shed. Fibre is being slung along the tops of existing poles on metal tees outside the village, trees have been cut in half, just the half nearest the new fibre, and hedges trimmed with a set of giant circular saws, pretty it is not. Will it ever work?, well hopefully it will be better than the current 1.07Mbps/0.43Mbps on a 5km line
Looks pretty easy to open
After extensive visiting remote sites and having the wrong key this lock looks pretty easy to me. First choice would be a whack with a 11/2lb hammer just above the little green light, next a nip of the stainless hasp with a 24" bolt cropper or otherwise cut it off with a battery angle grinder, all standard tools.
Why is Apple paying any tax in Ireland or potentially in the USA when the profits were made in the UK (the rest of Europe can sort its own share out)?
Its goods are manufactured in China, shipped directly to the UK and sold here for real money, if any tax is due on the profit then it should be paid in the state where it is earned.
Keep out of it
Flash it not the moral police so just keep his beak out. Consider this outcome:
Flash forwards the email to recipient, recipient is not happy with email and reports it , sender quite rightly says that he did not send it to them, Flash in the poo right up to his neck.
What a decent person would not have done is to mention the details to anyone so much better to bounce and not be such a nosey bugger.
