    I hope Alan takes that as a criticism rather than an insult although I suspect is it intended as such.

    Sorry if someone already answered this for you I'm going to suggest using alt-k. Now to try it for myself before I make a complete prat of myself ˚ Yes , that seems to work - I'll make a prat of myself some other time Which one's the option key? ° Ah, that's what I was calling alt. ° v ˚ One of those but I couldn't tell you what the other is for

    GCHQ can use your speaker as a microphone - maybe. I wouldn't trust anything from Google or Amazon to keep MY data secure. Apple maybe, they have a business model that doesn't involve selling MY data to third parties. Your PC, if it's running Windows, has an OS that's not been designed to be secure. MacOS and Linux are a different matter and far more secure

    There is a vast amount of evidence that security is mostly non-existent in IoT hardware. Computers and phones do have security built in and would need to be compromised before anyone could listen in. The ease of doing this depends on the OS the target is using...

    In all my time in the UK I have never experienced air that was warmer than 36.9 degC I am thoroughly enjoying this thread (starting from the beginning as not using Chicken of the VNC) So far I have reached post 276...

    We appear to be arguing the same thing (which isn't the best way to have an argument) And for some religions the new day starts at sunset (which confuses the hell out of me) although I suppose it made sense in a pre-technological era.

    They are indeed. But that number is generally above 5000

    I'm sorry, but unless there is current flowing (and there shouldn't be if the batteries are in their rested state) the voltage reading will be the same whether taken at the terminal posts or any other point on the circuit.

    Not a chemist, though my father was. Lithium Iron Phosphate - LiFePO(subscript)4 is how it should be written. But I haven't worked out how to get the subscript

    There's a logical element to that though - 11:59 is one minute to noon so 11:59am, 12:01 is one minute past noon so 12:01pm. Although it's nonsense to have 12am or 12pm it would be really illogical to call 12 noon 12am

    Wikipedia says that 12 midnight is 12am and 12 noon is 12pm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/12-hour_clock
