    TV aid ads.

    If the big bucks CEOs are worth their salt they will have a team of market researchers testing different "offers" to see which one generates the most revenue. I seem to recall from reading up on sales and marketing years ago that the number 7 is believed in some circles to have a psychological super power when it comes to persuading people to open their wallets.
  2. Then again I seem to recall there was a raft of new legislation brought in after the fuel protests of a few years back making it an offence to obstruct fuel supplies. If they really tried I'm sure they could find something to justify sending in the boys who were roughing up peaceful lockdown protesters on the streets of London a few months ago.
  3. Six days! Funny, I always thought if you committed an act of trespass the police could come and move you on or maybe even arrest you.
  4. Does Chrome actually require an activation key - according to Wikipedia it's proprietary freeware? Also worth considering how full the SSD is now - they are known to slow down as they fill up so installing a larger SSD could stave off that problem for longer. https://pureinfotech.com/why-solid-state-drive-ssd-performance-slows-down/
  5. Good advice above but given the low cost of SSD drives nowadays what I'd do in your situation is install a new SSD, do a clean install of the Chrome operating system and then mount the old SSD in a USB caddy and copy over the files you want to keep. That way you effectively get your device restored to the state it was in when new.
  6. A member of World Economic Forum’s (WEF) Young Global Leaders group - has probably sat around drinking tea and discussing the Great Reset with Putin and Klaus Schwab. https://www.weforum.org/people/volodymyr-zelenskyy They are certainly fulfilling at least part of the Young Global Leaders vision statement, though maybe not in the way we would have hoped. Transform YGLs are pioneering and bold. We identify and champion ways to scale-up, amplify and accelerate their impact, to make more of a difference in their communities and beyond. https://www.younggloballeaders.org/vision-and-mission
  7. And our government are going to grant these Columbian workers UK visas and work permits? Sheer hypocrisy if they do.
  8. That's the bit I was wondering about - where do you find cheap agency workers to take over the running of a ship at a moment's notice?
  9. Wonderful story - that's what you call a win-win outcome.
  10. Room for 1600 or so here: https://www.northantslive.news/news/northamptonshire-news/inside-wellingboroughs-new-mega-prison-5471591 A nicer environment than Butlins and only cost £253 million so could build a few per year once the government stops paying for free covid tests.
  11. Just kidding - looks like Trudeau and Freeland might have been getting a spanking from their WEF superiors 🤣 https://theconservativetreehouse.com/blog/2022/02/23/a-major-backfire-is-the-canadian-financial-and-banking-system-in-serious-trouble-as-a-result-of-their-attack-on-private-bank-accounts/ https://jamesfetzer.org/2022/02/boom-trudeau-reversal-motive-surfaces-canadian-banking-association-was-approved-by-world-economic-forum-to-lead-the-digital-id-creation/
  12. All done: Seems we misjudged the man after all:
  13. Dictators don't have to bother with stuff like that.. Never thought I'd share something from a leftist feminist like Naomi Wolf but I'll be watching with interest to see how many more of her predictions become reality in the weeks ahead. https://naomiwolf.substack.com/p/the-fall-of-canada-the-danger-in?utm_source=url
  14. There's also the small matter that holiday lets are not subject to most of the tenant-enabling regulations which disadvantage long-term rental landlords. Hmm, who would have thunk it - cause and effect...?
