    Climate Change thread

    Will be interesting to see how it works, if it does, but I have my doubts about it.

    One question, @L00b - who's going to pay for all this 'free' transportation?

    Cat trespassing on my property

    He needs one - but not how you mean.☺️

    Cat trespassing on my property

    I'd love some of what you're taking. Cats, by their very nature, do not recognise public footpaths - or private property - and unfortunately for the sad people like you, there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. The above assumes you are being serious, but if you were trying to be funny - you failed!

    Peterborough by-election

    Not very subtle, IMO - but there you go.

    Red and yellow Mainline buses

    Ooops, sorry, I had forgotten about the Trust, mixed it up with the Museum - where I am going on Sunday. SYTT open day is 21st July - I'm aiming for that one as well.

    Talktalk email address issues

    @Grahamfff- A perfectly valid address, and the correct format for TalkTalk ones. Some organisations just seem to regard some domains as invalid for no reason - I've had my 'something@xxxx.plus.com addy rejected a few times.

    Red and yellow Mainline buses

    Thanks, @Hook. Quite likely to be going on Sunday for the open day, so no doubt I'll see it.πŸ™‚

    Red and yellow Mainline buses

    Yep, that's the one I mentioned in message #7. It is actually Volvo/Wright Eclipse Gemini, not an Atlantean.

    Any details - reg number for instance? I'm not aware of any privately owned ones in Mainline livery.

    Banks to refund some scam victims.

    Yes, Hotmail did suffer a breach - don't know when, now, but I remember when it happened, all affected users were advised of what action they needed to take. You can, of course, close an address you think may have been compromised, and open another. I won't ask how they got your debit card details, but yes, that must have been distressing. As to online shopping, if you stick to well-known sites, or retailers you trust, you should be reasonably safe - I'm not saying nothing will ever go wrong, but I've never had a problem.

    Banks to refund some scam victims.

    I understand what you are saying, but I ask again - apart from that email, have ever suffered any loss? Unfortunately, email addresses/passwords do get hacked, but as you found, these are often from long-dead sources, and of little use. Did the organisation you used that email/password combination for suffer an attack? I use online banking, and have done for many years, with the same bank, branch and account and never had any problems. I also use online shopping quite extensively, so have accounts with a large number of companies - again all without issue for a long time. I too use my debit card for the majority of 'real-world' purchases too - again without any issue and I have no unwanted attention from any of the establishments I have used. If I encountered the situation you did at the Midland Hotel, I would ask why they needed it, then politely decline to supply it. Yes, I suppose your personal details are 'out there', but have you, or anyone you know personally , ever actually suffered loss? 25 years on, I have never had a real problem - yes, the occasional spate of dodgy emails from sources using random snooping techniques, but they are so obviously fake they get ignored - not even retrieved from the server. So again - have you ever been a victim?
