    Sadly, the people who constantly critize our President on this and other fora won’t have the decency to acknowledge that he, almost uniquely, actually put his money where his mouth is.

      …I’d say there are a good few other pensioners who would forego their pension increase next year in exchange for his rent free accomodation…

        You’re essentially blaming him for being elected president.

        Would you rather Gallagher had gotten it so Michael D could remain ‘pure’ as Gallagher embarrassed the nation?

        I’ve been told by a current on/off gf that theres no more sex till we sort some stuff out. That lasted a few days and guess what…it was’n’t rape.

    Following Friday’s hack attack, the blame game has begun. Manufacturers are not securing the devices properly but in fairness, to do so would increase the production costs to the point of being prohibitive. The solution is to stick the firewall on the router of course rather than on individual devices.

    Another issue is passwords, which is the responsibility of the owner. The most famous of these default password setups was the Russian CCTV site which streamed images from all over the world a few years ago. Surprising how many were actually in Ireland actually… and all because the default passwords were not changed.

    I personally think the Internet Of Things is just a sale gimmick anyways. We all survived when the kettle switch was manual or we had to open the fridge to check the milk and heating systems already have timers. People buy gadgets out of want rather than need.

          ” maybe she’s onto something”
          No it’s not its just more contrived pro Hillary debate from you SOQ

            Among others, Twitter, Paypal, Spotify and Amazon all went down on Friday. The hackers only stopped when WikiLeaks made an appeal to them.

            “Mr. Assange is still alive and WikiLeaks is still publishing. We ask supporters to stop taking down the US internet. You proved your point.”

            WikiLeaks is hardly pro Hilary propaganda now is it?

          2. Mr Reality

            SOQ your pro Hillary, if she mentions Russia hacking dnc and CIA stooge outfits like PayPal and Amazon you automatically start building a narrative around it.

            Your about as subtle as a kick in the face..

    I served with Abraham Lincoln. I knew Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln was a friend of mine. Trump, you’re no Abraham Lincoln.
