every time you talk to them the model has changed and you NEED a new feature, for just another 100K

@Sir Runcible you had ample chance to vote the same as any EU citizen. If you chose not to take part in the EU Election like 65% of the country (a good 7% below average turnout) and elect MEPs who make one arm of the EU legislature.
The other two are the council, formed of the Member state governments (weighted by Population) that you vote for in general elections
and the commision, which is proposed by the council (that you vote for your represenative too) and confirmed by the Parliment(theat you get a say in)
So How are you not able to influence european decisions by voting?
oh and all decisions of the council need to be unanimous, so your elected representatives effectivley have a veto.
and dont get me started on the mess of how legislation actually gets through all three into EU law ....
the paperless 2020 money pot has already been raided and the cupboard is bare.
NPfIT had some of it the GDE program had its share, the WannaCry remediation took a load, and the W10 desktop licences took what was left. There is no money for replacing faxes, even to expand the fax to email gateways most trusts have.
Id is very definatley required, we have what is known as the NHS SmartCard (a certificate authentiction) that can onlyh be issued on production of three forms of ID one of which to be Photo, and the people that issue it are more pedantic than the passport office.
Yes there are some lines, in business parks no less, that OpenBreach used Alu instead of copper, cos its fine for telephony, takes months to get the config right for ADSL, wouldnt like to test VDSL or G.Fail
Anyway, all Liberty Virign Media need to do is firmware upgrade to DOCSIS 3.1 and 250Mbps becomes 2Gbps and no body wants to pay OpenBreach for G.not so fast
Ben franklin had it right
this model is based of incomplete evidence and assumed facts.
There is no measure of how many tweets WaPo were not able to verify, no mention of how many were factually correct, and it only used 150 sets of max 280 chars, hardly enough to eet any criteria for a robust test, and the training sample bias needs to be scrutanised, and probably needs to include a much larger sample too.
to be fair both the major parties bareley qualify, as the only reasonfor all this brexit mess was trying to hold the Conservative Party together.
and this lot didnt win, in fact at the last GE no-body won, and Teresa had to make a deal with the uber right wing from NI just to get anything done.
Diane Abbot is a numpty, but so are most of the MPs, there are few exceptions, we need more MPs with some work/life experience outside of politics, but in this country its hard to get into in later life.
The political system in terms of FPP is broken, it leads to a two party system, and both of them are broken, on both sides of the pond.
Ok so the tax is a good idea, but the reason that the tax needs to be deployed at all is the UK overseas territories acting as tax havens.
Jersey, Cayman Isles, Bermuda, Gibralter, British Virgin Islands, Anguilla
the rest of them are former Empire nations or micro-nations
Codes are a right PITA
SQLlite is too Religious, CC is to SJW, Linux is too short (Be excelent to each other)
I'd go with a modified version of Matthew 22 37 and 39
You Shall value stability and security of $project with all your heart soul and mind
You Shall do nothing to others you wouldn't want them to do to you.
The reason SMC wont sue is "The burden of proof is always on the plaintiff" and it is intensley hard to prove a negative as they have said.
Its hard to see the conclusions either way as there is no evidence presented either way.
But an absence of evidence is not evidence of absence
so its basically Bloomberg and its anonymous sources vs SMC, Apple, Amazon and the TLAs
the question is who do you trust more, and who should you trust.
with a story of this magnitude, Bloomberg will have done enough to ensure their Liability is covered, SMC need this to go away fast, so their rep can recover.
IRT the previous quotes about Saudi, its not cash that menas people wont care, its the largest oil reserves in the world ... From vlad&Co its their Natural Gas, and the iranians have a good 3rd on the Oil reserves especially with sanctions, reducuing their output.
IIRC the data was removed from morrisions and uploaded from a personal machine.
IMHO, Morrisons should be liable for not taking due care of the payroll data of its employees.
Auditors should be able to see and verify, but not in any terms remove PII.
If this was under GDPR, regs there would be no case as Both would be liable.
