The Emperor Mongs Pronouncements

Becky Jones has a good old weep about her car being broken into while having a meal with her boyfriend and posts it on Social Meedja.

Call me old fashioned, but leaving your Gym Bag, your shopping, and even worse, leaves her NHS ID Badge in full view on the front seat of her car was inviting trouble.

Yes, but now the clapping has stopped how else will we recognise her as one of de NHS Angles?

I'm quite surprised to see the ID still there.

EM has been advising a South African Bank on Computer Security.

https://www.timeslive.co.za/sunday-...-bank-cards-after-employees-steal-master-key/
The Postbank is having to replace about 12-million bank cards at a cost of R1bn after a major security breach that exposes the personal data of millions of social-grant beneficiaries and other account holders.

The breach resulted from the printing of the bank's encrypted master key in plain, unencrypted digital language at the Postbank's old data centre in the Pretoria city centre. According to a number of internal Postbank reports, which the Sunday Times obtained, the master key was then stolen by employees.

One of the reports said that the cards would cost about R1bn to replace. The master key, a 36-digit code, allows anyone who has it to gain unfettered access to the bank's systems, and allows them to read and rewrite account balances, and change information and data on any of the bank's 12-million cards.
This is the equivalent of going away on holiday for a month and leaving your front door wide open with a 'We'll be back in 4 weeks" sign on it.

The bank, once it had wafted away the purple smoke from its data centre, has lost $3.2 million to fraud, and is now facing a $58 million bill to replace all the bank cards.

Genius...

I have an account with SA Post Office for my shrapnel collections, thankfully it is a book I can check every time. Me old fashioned? Yes and careful with it.
 
Arreton, Isle of Wight has a series of touristy attractions, a pub, and a pretty good farm shop in a complex called Arreton Barns.

Quite a large car park, with wooden fences showing the various bits of parking areas. But not that substantial fences........

Elderly couple, 4x4, automatic transmission and the Emperor Mong whispering either "The brake pedal is the one on the right" or "Reverse is the one marked D"........

Or possibly both.

The Southern Vectis bus company now needs a new bus shelter, and the Parish Council needs to replace a couple of flower planters. The elderly couple probably need a new car.

But there were no serious injuries.

He nearly had me this morning.
Reached into the cupboard still half asleep looking for my Beconase spray for my Hayfever.

Bottle is found, top is taken off, hmmm its a bit stiff.. Wipe the sleep from my eyes and find I'm about to stick a tube of Gorilla Glue up my nose.

On the bright side, I wouldn't have had Hayfever, no pollen inside of A&E is there. I swear I heard the bastard cursing me.

I got a BEng in part off the back of doing a design report on a two-stroke (?) engine designed to be bolted to a push-bike. Can't remember what is was called, though. If I could be bothered I'd go and look in the cupboard and see if I've still got it amongst all my other coursework.

Edited to add: this rings a bell:-
