Re: perhaps HMRC are the issue
You're not. Similar story here.

Keith's antics made it acceptable for a whole generation of guys to unleash the bendy bits ( I think they're called "knees" and "elbows" ) in what can loosely be described as dancing. For allowing us to express ourselves and communicate in this way, we thank you. Although my wife has never quite forgiven the number of times I've managed to stand on her feet in the process.
Keith, if only you could have spoken to someone last night. Us blokes are a bit rubbish like that. So to anyone out there feeling a bit lost right now, if you feel the need to talk to someone, know that there's always someone who will listen:

Worth noting that he's been out on bail, albeit with some pretty debilitating conditions, since August 2017. Adding this to correct the assumption that he's still banged up. To all intents he's still being denied his liberty, as he is unable to leave the US and has had restrictions placed on his use of technology and the internet that effectively prevent him working or even helping build his defence case.
He's worth a follow on Twitter, if you're into the twitterings. @malwaretechblog
If it helps, I'm a Programme Manager (Project Manager squared) and I'd fund that.
The amount of deliveries that have fallen on their arse because of this kind of thinking.... Perhaps that's how I got demoted and now actually have to deal with the PHBs as the Developers' Champion?
About 3 weeks ago I was notified of two suspicious transactions by BarclayCard; one for close on £1000 for events through another ticket sales company and one for car insurance (yes, really!)
The last transaction prior to these? Ticketmaster on 23rd February.
Smoking gun anyone?
It rather looks like the bad actors gathered data for at least 3 months before they swung into action and started selling the details. On the plus side, both the merchants in this case were keen to take action to cancel the purchases (invalidating tickets and insurance) and were proactive in referring the matter to their internal fraud teams and local police. Barclays had already put chargeback in place, but was nice to see the merchants taking an active stance.
Not often I say this, but beers for Barclays.
Don't worry, someone in an NCIS lab* will be able to zoom in on that rock, rotate the image, extrapolate a full body view and reveal a reflection on the dinosaurs' eyeballs of a fast-approaching meteorite.
(*there'll be a dead marine somewhere in the story to establish jurisdiction. Probably crushed in the stampede.)
"I'll wager that a nice part of Dorset, with mainline access to London has more than a few well connected bigwigs, and that's why Openreach are doing it, nothing whatsoever to do with any "cluster of properties". "
You'd lose your bet. Mostly agricultural workers, families on benefits and retired folk with the remaining 1/3rd working in jobs ranging from school teacher to Project Manager. A number are able to work from home by nature of their work but unable due to.... Elastic band. What we do have is a sense of community and a determination to ensure the kids in our village aren't left behind with their homework, the tried can Skype their families and the rest of us can stop blasting carbon into the air with our unnecessary travel footprint
BT are now rolling out FTTP using overhead in some areas. We're one of those locations in rural Dorset - 5km from the cabinet but a reasonably well concentrated cluster of properties and we have a mainline station for that there London, so the demand for service is pretty high.
OverReich have been stringing fibre through the trees for the last 5 weeks, with a few sections where foliage density requires a return to underground conduit. We're hoping for a switch-on later this month and it will be full FTTP.
I shan't be getting rid of my Draytek Vigo 2860LN any time soon as I suspect I will be making full use of the LTE fallback capability at some point...... Trees being prone to fall over and tractors having an unerring ability to knock over telegraph poles in this neck of the woods.
Icon? Because we drink scrumpy in Dorset too (see tractor driving capability)
