    Wether he was at faulf of not, sure its his duty to admit fault. Its not like he pronaly pays for his own insurance anyhow.

    The sun being low is irrelevant. As fa as I’m away it’d in the same place for everyone.

    Mrs told me last night. She said he was fine. So I was said, why is it news then? More an advert for 93 year olds to not drive huge Rangrovers.

  • Her gob certainly makes my head spin. She is trully turning into a modern kid. Shill and tv are drumming liberalism (social justice warrer like shite) into them.

    It’s quite concerning tbh.

    My youngest lad that’s very clever and dyslexic, (18), drive me mental. He can’t hold words in his friggin head. He takes everything as literal. This has…[Read more]

  • I’ve set Monday night to one side. And I’m gonna go through every site in my last pass and change them all. Even though most are 16 digit random generated pws. I’d have it set higher but alot don’t like more than 16 and then it ends up a bit to much of a faff, you be jumping back and forth.

    I may try 32 characters this time, until I hot to many…[Read more]

  • I was just talking about passwords with my 10 yo girl, she brought me a piece of a4 paper with all her accounts and her passwords.

    1. I was amazed he had half of them,

    2. I was happy she has heard me going on at mum about reusing passwords. (something mum hasn’t done!)

    3. Her password wasn’t waht I’d call great, but non was on the list.

    4. I…[Read more]

  • Happy birthday Richard hope you have a good day.

  • To my amazement my throw away password that we use alot for crap we don’t car about. Mainly newsletter sign ups, that demand a pw but you don’t trust fully. Us only on Thr list twice.

    The down side to that is, them 2 sites they got the pw from eoudo of definialy been connected to my email.

    In my last pass account that same password is used for…[Read more]

    I must admit, I now have no idea of what is currently happening, or will happen. I’m now totally at a loss. I feel I was since this began, but it’s dawning on my now I’ve never understood what our government and parliament has been upto.

    Ive never studied something so much over such a period, and at each trun of events I’ve felt further away then…[Read more]

    A good old Bill Binneys graph. Now wepponised to track everyone.

    It wasn’t what he intended it for. but given he was cia, I’m sure he knew what it would be used for.

    Perfect for rooting out terrist cells, or anyone an organisation doesn’t like. Replace Linux with a famous name. Then you see how dangerous this is. And all they need is meta…[Read more]

  • The Duke replied to the topic Brexit now = CETA +/-? in the forum Europe 1 week ago

    The first point about the EU putting pressure on the uk to decide is true. However its more a case of to get A50 extention all 27 nations have to agree to it, just one can veto it and it’s a no.

    The EU just want this done, either way now.

    However we don’t need any of the 27s permission to just kill brexit. So this is just a tool which they have…[Read more]

    Ues Ed some countries want a deposit that is the equvianlt of the whole cost of shipment.  Which for small companies is a massive issue. As DHL etc isn’t going to cover thst for you. Thought that’s extreme cases.

    VHM given the poor showing of our on government over the last couple of years. And the new intervrsty imitives documents that are…[Read more]

    The only If and Buts are; IF we leave the EU, we are obliged to take WTO terms and will be serverly damamaged by them. BUT if cwe stay we won’t.

    Security is a great argument, I’ll give you that. However if we don’t have a stable economy and we won’t have the money to secure bugger all.

    So economy trumps security. As it needed to come first.…[Read more]

    Not to mention the deals the government have stuck with companies to set up here, instead of mainland, once they can’t take advantage of the open market  which no doubt was in the contracts. They will be suing the government in the hauge.

    That will look good  when we a begging some nationins to strike deals with us. No one will trust us to h…[Read more]

  • Soros has a lot of the Democrats that’s for sure. And he is exteemly rich and more dangerously powerful.

    He sent us packing to the imf begging bowl, and I’ve hear it said press release he can crash economies. I can’t recall of the top ofv my head but China blame him for some act in the 90s (maybe 2000s). Also he had dealings trying to…[Read more]

  • It’s a shame she died. It would be nice to know for what? As no one ever belived the offical line anyhow, or only the few gulable enough. Something was always a miss.

    It will be interesting over the next few days as the revaluations come out what is in the documents. American have their hands full too regarding this. Interesting times…[Read more]

  • @edps speaking of a non democracy, what do you think of this?

    Bigbrother is here, looks like the Russian poisoning was a load of BS. Not that we belived the story. Looks like it was made up and everyone was in on it. Shaping minds and public views on potential enemies.

  • Probably right Ed. Was about 5 years ago now.

    That ties in with my first post saying it’s not unheard of for marines to carry 140lb. I hear in the failklands it was closer to 200. I’m not sure how they did it. As anything over a 100, we’d sit on the floor, put the burgan on, then your oppo pulls you up. Then youd return the favour. Quite often, Especally when tired. You’d both end up on the…[Read more]

  • Youre lucky there was no wild life survey carried out. That’s what killed all our wildlife. Sigh…

    The houses aren’t an issue, they are in one way and ad no traffic. The issue always was this was one of the last, if not the last, place the amimals had. I’d bet there had been generation animal that never left that small plot of land.

    Yes, militery kit has to be tough, so that makes it heavy. Plus we never got good modern stuff. And we didn’t want it, as it alway broke.

    Coming back to weights. On top of what I metionsed. In even 8 man section, one wouidp carry a gpmg (about 30lb), his oppo Thr tri pod about 20lb, anther guy a LAW(94 in my time)  which was probably 25lb. And…[Read more]
