  1. Some of this (meh): Then a bit of this (mmm...):
  2. Kill List was pretty good, although IMDB seems to slightly disagree with me at 6.4/10, so could qualify for both best and worst. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1788391
  3. Indeed. Maybe it's a mistake and they mean barbers/hair dressers/salons? Walked down the high street the other day and I swear every other shop had something to do with cutting (or styling, or removing, or...) hair. Definitely didn't see any new bookshops though.
  4. Hope he's changed his password policy over time, he entered 1,2,3,4 when asked for it.

    Adblockers

    Well if your 'random' updates are because Windows/Chrome are set to install available updates automatically that's probably a good thing, from a security perspective. I'm not on Windows so can't really check if Google have decided to include some kind of adblocking by default, but to me that sounds unlikely as, currently, Chrome add-on developers are up in arms about changes to the APIs available to them that will make it harder for add-blockers to work (for example [1], [2]) which Google are justifying (trying to justify, but no-one is buying it) under the label of "security". Are you saying that you have a Chrome add-on installed that's called "adblocker", or you've got the "adblock plus" add-on installed? I know that "adblock plus" used to have a setting about allowing whitelisted adds, so there could be something in the settings there that you could tweak. But, randomly acquiring browser add-ons doesn't sound too good in the first place, does it? The installed add-ons, and their origins are able to be listed within the browser. Maybe updating/running the anti virus is a good idea you truly have randomly got a third-party add-on installed?

    That doesn't sound right. Random update to what? Or, maybe someone else installed it on your machine?

    We actually get internal emails from various departments that "suggest" what we might use as text for text on various social media platforms. As well as, in parallel, mandatory online training courses that remind us that we shouldn't be providing too specific info about the company we work for. Boils my piss, this sort of stuff. It's absolutely nothing to do with subject/job you hired me for.
  8. Am I half asleep or, is it not supposed to be "people can de-stress with a hot drink" not, "people can distress with a hot drink"?
  9. If you're considering keepass, there's also keepassX and keepassXC: https://askubuntu.com/a/1011433

  11. What do the locals know that you don't?

    I also encountered the same problem. Looked at their blog for what's going on, and followed the advice about enabling "studies" to receive their hotfix, then, seemed to be crucial to me, restarting the browser which they didn't say. After restart, refresh your installed add on's page, and all was good. Then disable the "studies" setting, again, if you had it turned off originally. https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2019/05/04/update-regarding-add-ons-in-firefox/
