Re: Coronavirus

Mrs is a doctor in the navy. She's fairly sure that it's onboard her ship (as sure as she can be without any testing facilities onboard). One of those affected is the captain, who thinks that isolation is spending 2 hours in the evening playing Mario Kart in the mess, and making himself a coffee in ...

Re: Long term changes of COVID 19

I'd love to be optimistic about it, but having seen how people have behaved when it comes to panic buying and social distancing, go you honestly think the majority will learn anything??? Very much this. As has been previously established, people are idiots, a dose of the corona virus is unlikely to...

Re: Holidays cancelled thread

I've booked 4 weeks in Martinique in April/May to see the GF, who I haven't seen since November. I'm rather loath to cancel it, seeing as the flights cost £2k, I really want to go to the Caribbean, I'd like a holiday, I want to swim with turtles and I guess seeing the GF would be good too. Unfortuna...

Then running out of charge half way through drilling a field and having to wait 8 hours to recharge it. Thats fine, they were stopping to have a coffee and a wee break anyway.

Having looked around, Westpac's answer to this is that after 3 unsuccessful logins they lock your account for 24 hours.
Which is great if that's the attack vector used by hackers.

Just protect yourself as much as you can by setting a nice long password.
I can't Dinny; the password can only be six characters. No more, no less.

Mik, already on it.

Piss poor security

I've recently opened a new bank account in Australia and signed up for online banking. Their password rules are an absolute joke; must be six characters, no special characters, all lower case, no two-step or multifactor identification available. I'm finding it hard to believe that any financial inst...

Did you find that the later books were more of the same old?

Re: FECPOTY 2018

I bought a 2004 Accord with 200k on it 2 years ago for £900. I've had to replace the brakes and clutch, aside from that it's been completely reliable. I've done another 30k in it without a problem. I'm amazed at how well cars last these days. As someone (Beany?) mentioned earlier, can you imagine a ...

Re: Bye Bye Boris!

I'm torn between green and lib dem. I live in Geffory Cox's constituency, so I'm be fairly sure that he's going to win regardless, unfortunately. In which case, I think it's more showing that the climate change/environment/green policies are the issues that matter to voters. As well as a fundamental...
