You wish (someone else naturally) to shoot someone else?

You need therapy. Soonest.

Re: 8chan

The "chan" that 4chan thought was too extreme.

I agree. If you don't, just go and look at it.

New UK Home Sec invokes infosec nerd rage by calling for an end to end-to-end encryption

Many years ago a chap whose name I cannot remember (I think he was with Sun systems) told us that, privacy is over. Deal with it or something along those lines.

I agree with him. I could not care less if I am being tracked. What is the point of worrying about it? It is going to happen no matter what. Why not just deal with it? I could not care less if ghcq/nsa/whoever is tracking me.They must be bored stupid with my browsing. I wish they would track me more positively and send me more relevant adverts.

No script, ad blockers? You do realise that by using that shit you are setting yourself up for special attention to break your and others' "protection".

AND YOU STILL GET ADVERTS

I dropped my telephone

and it was going to cost HOW MUCH to repair?

Fuck that. So I went into my loft and after digging through God knows how many boxes of stuff that I know I will need one day, I found it. My Nokia 3310. Complete with one2one sim. Long story short, new sim, new battery, and it works. No fucking emails, notifications or any of that bollocks. And the original snake. Life is now so much quieter. I now realise that my phone was smart but I was not.

Ouch. Reinstalling Windows 10 again? By 2020, a 'cloud download' may be all you need

There never was a B drive as far as I know. And I am, sadly, old enough to remember trying to find the damn thing.

@DuncanLarge

Yes it does still work. Though I have not got a clue as to whether it is in the uefi or not. Whatever that is...

Re: That's what you get

@Bombastic Bob.

Have been reading your comments for quite a while now.

Is there ANYTHING you have not done or worked with, or are NOT an expert on?

Truly you are SUPERHUMAN.

English Flag

The logo bears a remarkable resemblance to the REAL English flag, before some roman general or whoever, decided to foist a pisshead Greek bishop (St George) and that so called English Red Cross abortion of a flag upon us.
