2.7 million medical calls breached in Sweden
The calls were stored on a NAS connected to the internet with no authentication or encryption, with people's phone numbers in the file names of audio files
@yardgnome Just had to say how much I love your profile pic :)
child poverty, reproductive choice Show more
BPAS are fighting the UK govt's plan to place a 2-child limit on welfare support, a plan that has been described this way: "If you were designing a policy to increase child poverty, it would be hard to do better than this."
BPAS are fighting this because they don't want anyone to be pushed into having an abortion they don't want out of the fear of becoming destitute.
Sometimes I forget that pro-choice campaigning is about ALL kinds of reproductive choice, and this has been a useful reminder for me today.
If your "pro-life" organisation isn't doing any work to get actual living children out of poverty, it's not pro-life, it's just anti-bodily-autonomy.
Hey @unfa ! How do you make this sort of sound in ZynFusion?
At each refresh, this website will generate a realistic face of a person who doesn't exist, based on datasets of real pictures. Fascinating.
CW: the whole concept is a bit freaky. Eye contact. Backgrounds are almost always wierd, and if there are portions of other faces on the generated picture, they will look deformed and somewhat scary.
#np Troublegum by Therapy? - the whole album, to celebrate it's 25th anniversary today!
One of my all time top ten albums I reckon, such an underrated band.
Last week I bought a desk planner from Ryman (UK stationery shop) that I'd previously ordered online. Was horrified when they asked for ID, then took my passport and entered at least part of my passport number into the system.
I've since complained and they responded that they're "sorry for the negative experience" and that they will make shop staff "aware of the "correct process". They also say they'll make sure this info isn't stored.
I'm sceptical. If this isn't the correct process, why is there a field on the computer system for entering passport numbers at all? And if it isn't being stored, why are they entering it?
Sounds to me like the old game of blaming individual shop staff for organisational choices. I have followed up because I'm not letting this go, and I might end up reporting Ryman to the ICO. Has anyone else had a similar experience with Ryman? I'd like to gather more evidence.
I wrote step-by-step instructions on how to move from one instance to another on Mastodon, which I've been told works, so here it is:
I like Dark Souls. And Bloodborne. And Dark Souls III. But not Dark Souls II
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
