Train Strike - next week
RMT has called a train strike next week to reinstate the fired driver and to demand installing full screen TVs on all trains to make sure drivers don't get bored (and a payrise as well)

He is a political activist. The article even says that the black cab drivers have fronted him 20k. This isn't about VAT it is another step in the sage of Black Cab vs Uber. (and I bet that black don't register for VAT even when they receive over the 85k limit)
The costs probably aren't as extreme as your would have thought.
The article implies 6 classes which implies minimum of 6 professors plus 6 TAs, factor in 2-3 IT staff, 5 friends/accomplices means approximately 22 interview (at minimum). Each interview takes 2-3 hours (1 for the interview and at least an hour of faffing and transport). Each interview has 2-3 FBI
That implies 22*3*3 hours just for interviews = 198 FBI hours, almost $20k on just interviews @$100/hr (which is reasonable for a mid level FBI + tax + overtime + holiday + 401k etc). This doesn't included the FBI IT techs, the searches of properties, the investigations, the re-interviews, the incorrect interviews (there will have been innocent people and staff from other courses). Then factor in the overheads, rent, hotels, cars. - maybe 5k
Then you have the cost of preparing for trial - FBI lawyers, re interviews, preparing - probably the same 20k again
66.5k seems padded, but not by much
Every time I check my area for fibre they insist I can't get it, even though the box 2m from my house is FTTC enabled AND I already have FTTP. They often try arguing with me that I don't have a fibre cable coming in to the building.
Usually the argument is when then cut off my copper cable (because they insist I pay for one) and then wonder why I don't notice for weeks/months
I wonder what would happen if I was stopped. My server has a whole load of VMs where I can't remember the passwords. Of course they aren't technically mine (previous company training/sample material I never deleted), so it would be illegal for me to hack them and illegal for me to not....
Funny, I would use the same argument to say there is an expectancy for updates. You buy a perpetual licence (like most XP ones were) so they agreed to fix it for the length of a licence.
I outright bought my car, I don't expect GM to come and fix it every time it develops a fault.
Of course 16 years is too long to expect a company to support a product
How many seconds do you think it will be before they by pass the filters once they raise everyone blocks everything to anonymous users?
Plus I can barely remember the places I have flown this year and this has been a slow year. How will I remember 15 years worth? Eu travel isn't in my passports, but I'm sure they know about it
Not used a cheque in a while (so long that my computer doesn't recognize as a word) , but I seem to remember a pretty typical method was 1) try and pull out 2) separate cheque from other cheques (putting prints the one below) and when that doesn't work 3) touch every cheque everywhere as you slowly rip off
"The Money Laundering Regulations apply to a number of different business sectors, including financial and credit businesses"
"Money Service Businesses",,,"transmits money, or any representation of money"
I think that is pretty comprehensive (Paypal transmits money, also they act as bureau de change so are caught twice). They are covered by money laundering regulations. They might take money form a bank, but how do they whose bank account it really is?
I don't know where you live, but its obviously not rush hour in London. Every bus I see is crammed to bursting and the pavements aren't much better in central. The reason the pavements SEEM clear is when a mad capped cyclist is riding at speed along them swearing at people they tend to jump out of the way.
Yes I do cycle to work (on the road) and I tend to have more problems with the taxis. They weave in and out of bus lanes cut everyone off, just to provide a chauffeur service to people who don't want to sully themselves with public transport
I do like the idea of mobile phone companies sponsoring street lights, it might mean they actually get put in sensible places and fix when broken
