Although not a situation without precedent - an alleged quote from Eddie Irving racing in Formula 1 for Jordan
Great Britain 1994
When Eddie Jordan asked him to take part in a photo shoot of all the British drivers before Silverstone 1994 he replied, "Do I have to? Send out some f**ker in my helmet, they'll never know the difference"
Just for fun and sheer entertainment I think there should be an award for the most flagged comment. Just to see what the most outlandish claim could be - probably no shortage of candidates that I've missed. Or stats on the number of times Mike has been called a shill.
I'm not so sure it's prudishness - IMHO it's was more that the Tory's want to be seen as the party of "law and order" and by implementing a porn filter they felt they were claiming the moral and political high ground because they were "thinking of the children".
I know it's bad form replying to ones own post but just thinking about encryption software and the book cipher.
I'm sure you could write a very simple awk script linked to the Gutenberg project so that it would very easily and quickly convert a message to a book cipher and reverse the code back to the message. Add in a little agreed offset to the book, page and line numbering to prevent brute force cracking and I think you'd be able to engineer a fairly secure automated system.
I've no doubt there are much better thought out encryption systems but it appeals to my old school engineering to have an automatic book cipher.
I was thinking something like this would be useful, sort of like a public and private address book system. You can then choose which contacts to share as apps would only be allowed access to the public address book.
They don't need to make them available after the whole shitshow is over.
In 2 months time they're going to have to implement the contingency plans anyway so we'll find out if they were worth the paper they were written on.
Shirley if you're applauding them for being goods eggs then the least you could do is provide a link to their website. ( I hope I got the right one :) )
Anyway what we really need to know is do they make butter pies and do they deliver to the UK?
LOL - I think BHVI ought to reply to Village Hotels thanking them for pointing out the possible confusion over their name. With a reputation like that I'd put as much distance as possible between the Bay Horse Inn and Village Hotels.
