Re: One good thing about it
I'm British. I have strong views on the subject of whether/how we should leave the EU.
I have even stronger views on people who think it is necessary to post political bollocks in a non-politics thread. People who think that, I know, people will really appreciate a Brexit/Trump joke on this thread. Bastards, every man Jack of them.
Yes, that's the one I've had. manutd is one of my passwords that I only use in places I really don't care about, don't trust and expect to get hacked. My email is mail@domain, which explains the first part of the subject:
Subject: mail : manutd
I am aware manutd is your pass words. Lets get straight to the point. Not one person has compensated me to check you. You don't know me and you're most likely thinking why you are getting this email?
actually, i placed a malware on the X video clips (porno) site and do you know what, you visited this website to have fun (you know what i mean). When you were watching videos, your browser began functioning as a Remote control Desktop with a key logger which provided me with access to your display screen as well as web cam. immediately after that, my software obtained all your contacts from your Messenger, Facebook, as well as e-mailaccount. after that i created a double-screen video. 1st part displays the video you were viewing (you've got a good taste lmao), and next part shows the view of your web cam, & its you.
You have got only 2 solutions. Lets read up on these types of choices in details:
Very first alternative is to ignore this e-mail. in that case, i most certainly will send your tape to all of your contacts and just think regarding the disgrace you experience. and as a consequence if you happen to be in a romantic relationship, just how it will affect?
Number two alternative should be to give me $887. Lets describe it as a donation. in this scenario, i most certainly will instantaneously eliminate your video footage. You could resume everyday life like this never occurred and you will not hear back again from me.
You will make the payment through Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' in Google).

[CaSe-sensitive copy & paste it]
if you have been making plans for going to the cop, well, this message cannot be traced back to me. I have taken care of my steps. i am also not attempting to ask you for a huge amount, i simply want to be rewarded. e mail if i do not receive the bitcoin, i definitely will send your video recording to all of your contacts including membe rs of your family, colleagues, and so forth. However, if i receive the payment, i will destroy the video immediately. If you really want evidence, reply Yes then i definitely will send your video to your 10 contacts. This is a non-negotiable offer that being said please do not waste my personal time & yours by replying to this e-mail.

Who cracked El Chapo's encrypted chats and brought down the Mexican drug kingpin? Er, his IT manager
Re: "environmental terrorists"
Terrorism could reasonably be described as causing damage for political goals.
These eco terrorists are intentionally costing the airlines a great deal of money as well as intentionally costing a great number of travellers their holidays.
I would be perfectly content to see them sent to Guantanamo.
Amazon exec tells UK peers: No, we don't want to be dominant. Also, we don't fancy being taxed on revenues
Re: Nowt to do with Amazon
Change the law so you pay corporation tax if you fail to make a profit due to investing in growing the business ( insane )?
Change the law so you pay higher business rates if you use low value land for a warehouse in an industrial estate than if you use highly sought after land in the town centre ( daft )?
Change the law so you can't shop VAT rates around the EU ( sensible but that depends on, shall we say, other events, we'll see )?
Change the law so you pay a tax on revenue ( ie: increase VAT )? People weren't chuffed about the 17.5% > 20% increase. Why would they be happy about increasing that further ( are we going to pretend that a tax on revenue isn't basically just increasing VAT ? )
Change the law so the international arm of a company ( ie: UK arm ) can't buy goods and services from other arms of the same firm ( batshit crazy )?
Re: Non Issue
Not to mention no tears were shed for the remaining credibility of the .EU TLD. If your fellow countrymen vote to leave, you lose your domain. That's the end of anybody sensible anywhere in Europe using .EU as their primary domain.
Not this this will happen, this is just literalist nonsense.
Re: From bitter experience I must disagree
The BBC complaint response was likely so they could categorise your complaint in a way that was less tangental to reality but more convenient to them.
I once complained about the football scores being shown on the news directly before match of the day so if you recorded it, you stood a good chance of accidentally seeing the scores you'd managed to avoid all day, leading to having to start the programme but with your hand obscuring all of the screen and hoping you could tell whether MOTD had started from the colour of the corner.
Their response: sod off.
Re: People stil falling for the fake email.
I got a fantastic letter from Barclays the other day - their logo looked like it had been photocopied, badly, telling me about how my application for credit was successful, call 03XX to query.
I was so sure it was a scam by that point that I was slightly impressed they had bothered to get hold of an 03 number.
Then I remembered that I had taken out "partner credit" with Barclays when buying a sofa.
I did wonder what rubber bullets, that Italian police used to be fond of using on English football fans would do to A: the drone, B: whatever they hit when they missed.
Presumably they are non-lethal but would they cause enough damage to the drone.
I would also assume that military helicopter pilots would be fine with the risk of having a drone flying at them - considering they've been intentionally used to trick missiles into flying at them rather than aircraft carriers.
Re: Telnet access
I once worked with an unnamed yet completely vital system which outputted its log over a network connection similar to syslog but not.
We often ran the log viewer app on our workstations over a VPN as it was very useful for development.
After a while we started getting very strange errors on this critical system that we couldn't diagnose - random and long, noticeable delays in execution of the time critical code.
We reported to the manufacturer who spent quite a while looking into this problem.
It turned out that the network part of the log output code ran in the main thread, so our office's dodgy Internet were causing the whole system to hang.
For beginners, still wine kits are the best bet.
The quality is very high for the price ( £45 for 30 bottles worth, plus probably £20 or £30 for equipment ) producing very quaffable fluids.
Wine is also preferable if bottling because you aren't going to go through more than three a night whereas with bottled beer you're forever sanitising.
Kegging is the way forward for beer but the cheap plastic kegs with the sodastream Co2 are shit and if you're going to do it properly it costs more and takes up more space ( ~ £100 for a cornie keg, plus an under counter fridge, plumbing, Co2 tank, Co2 pressure regulator, etc ).
