  1. We used to have a remote access portal at work. The manager had to request wfh access and then we (IT support) would set the user up. They had to set a 4 digit pin and give their mobile number. A code was then sent to the phone. When they were at home they would log into the remote portal with username/password and the 4 digt pin and code. Once they were in it would send a new code for next time. Since moving to WIN 10 they shouldn't need to do anything as the VPN connects automatically.
  2. Went to Tesco Leytonstone today. Had to que to get in but didn't have wait too long. Was nice and calm inside everybody was just quietly walking around getting there items. Didn't see anyone complaining and everyone was trying keep a safe distance between each other.
  3. I assume the remote access system can cope on a normal day. I work for a council and we have been told to wfh and not go into the Town Hall unless it's absolutely necessary. We have a VPN for when you wfh. It has struggled over the last 2 weeks with the increased traffic. The network team and external supplier have increased the load so it's been ok the last few days.
  4. If you hold down the shift key and press shutdown it will do a full shutdown of the computer.
  5. Just seen a post on Facebook saying they are closing down after 40 years. Having a clearance sale on the 25'th Jan.
  6. Was out in London Bridge at a few pubs Was heading to the Underground on my way home. A guy came and went to high five me wishing me happy new year. Next thing I know he had his leg wrapped around mine. I tried to push him away but he kept it there. He then left and I felt my pocket and realised my phone had been taken. Turned around and couldn't see him. Have blocked the sim and reported it to the police. They came to my house and took a statement. The phone will be blocked and show as stolen if they try and sell it. Happened so quickly and I was in a bit of a daze after it happened.
  7. So what are you suggesting. You work/worked on the buses so know a lot more than me. I can't really see someone taking TFL to court over this.
  8. If you make the buses contactless it will. In London the driver doesn't have to worry about tickets and using a machine. You get on the bus touch your card/device on the yellow reader wait for the green light and that's it. Zip cards (schoolkids) and freedom passes (60+) are contactless and it saves a lot of time. I know not every one has a contactless debit/credit card or a device (watch/phone) with Apple/Android pay. There a lots of places to buy an Oyster card if you don't have contactless and they are really easy to use.
  9. Contactless is the way to go. So easy in London you just tap your card/phone/watch on the yellow reader and your done. It is a flat fare of £1.50 on all buses. You can now hop on unlimited buses or trams for free within one hour of touching in for your first journey.
  10. I've seen some Scouts selling poppies. Some of the Underground stations have have poppie stalls which is a good idea. They have card readers to this year which makes sense.
  11. If you have a noise issue you need to ring the council.
  12. Why would you want to buy one? I understand they pulled out because of theft and damage to the bikes.
  13. I believe some of the new double deckers have air con.
