He's got a copy of the electoral register so he probably thought he was being polite. By register I mean the complete register, not just the "public" register available to anyone - at least that used to be the case. Not sure how current data regulations have changed that.

Re: Multi-layered security controls across our systems
"I got a similar answer from EDF when I asked them why I needed to disable 'Auto remove overlays', 'uBlock Origin' and Safescript in order to access the site."
With noscript you have to enable google.com and gstatic.com and sometimes an amazonaws script in addition to the edf script in order to log in. The google and gstatic scripts seem to be there for supplying the captctha. The amazonaws is not always present but if it is you have to enable it. I've complained about this excessive use of 3rd party stuff but they seem not to understand, their ssl labs rating was a B until I told them about it, they've since improved it.
Re: Surfboard modems
"The first cable modems they supplied were Surfboard modmes. They used a soft config file sucked off the server and stiored in EPROM. The config file set you up/down speed, otherwise all you had was 64k to the server and no other connectuion. It turned out to vbe suprisingly easy to sniff config files as they zoomed past, save them, read them, reset the mac address of the modem, then copy up the config file. You paid for 128k but got 10Mb"
You sure they weren't Surfboard mod-me's?
Re: It was always fibre though, right?
Collecting code books from adjoining areas so you could dial various exchanges to check for faulty ones ( dial remote exchange from local exchange then code for local exchange from remote location) to see if paybox gets bypassed. Rinse and repeat. Result : faulty exchange bypasses paybox- free phone calls.
Otherwise dial exchanges in a string to avoid long distance charges- gets noisier with more hops.
I've said too much...
Mines the one with all the little red books in it. ( No, not those little red books...)
That's the problem gents, by the time you've enabled (one at a time) the first few scripts, you find the check doesn't work. Of course you look again to see a whole new shitload of other scripts waiting for your permission. I'd be more trusting if I hadn't remembered that Todd Davis (Symantec co-founder) had his identity stolen 13 times!
Would you want to steal his identity?
