  1. No announcement at this time of night. It will be in the morning if there is one.
  2. Fair point. Most I don't listen to on here are on twitter. Speaks volumes really.
  3. Panicked there, we just touched on performance mode.
  4. Hero if you're right. I won't mention if you're wrong 😆
  5. I've heard fizz all from a very reliable sauce.
  6. Let us know what you find out, I would be interested. I would have thought that it is highly unlikely to be a MAC address as they are allocated to a specific user on a one for one basis.
  7. The best on the market IMHO. Funnily enough, it is the most expensive too.
  8. Not as much as you think. I have to use one for my job, but I also use it for private browsing. The best two on the market are IMHO Express VPN and Nord VPN. Nord is the cheaper of the two and I would recommend it for most people. (I'm not affiliated in any way) £64 for 2 years (look for the deal) Express is more than twice the cost, but the best in my opinion. The risk? Data collection, targeted advertising from Google et al. 5 eyes government surveillance, identity theft, etc, etc. Some people think they are unnecessary, I don't. Don't go for a cheap one, they are not worth it. Nord is the best deal for the average bloke Nev.
  9. The good ones are usually AES encrypted. Split tunnelling on top and you are as safe as can be with current technologies. Taken from a well known quality VPN which does not keep logs and is registered in a country that does not subscribe to the 'five eyes' agreement. Besides hiding your IP address and mixing your traffic with that of other users, XXX VPN also encrypts your traffic between secure VPN servers and your computer, so that it can’t be read by third parties in between, such as your internet service provider or your local Wi-Fi operator. XXX VPN uses AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) with 256-bit keys—also known as AES-256. It’s the same encryption standard adopted by the U.S. government and used by security experts worldwide to protect classified information. 256-bit keys means 2^256 or 1.1 x 10^77 possible combinations. That’s 115,792,089,237,316,195,423,570,985,008,687,907,853,269,984,665,640,560,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 combinations! A brute-force attack on a 256-bit keyspace is simply infeasible, even if all the world’s most powerful supercomputers ran for as long as the universe has existed so far, billions and billions of times over.
  10. Nowt to worry about. Especially split tunnelling with a VPN and Tor.
  11. Does anyone know if the hearing has actually finished? Are we just waiting for the judgement?
  12. Quite a lot of weeds in the lawn. May I suggest a good quality weed and feed be applied twice yearly.
