The Russians are still interfering trying to cause more chaos, why support them by using Kaspersky?

'It takes one to catch one' as they say. And in any case the alternatives (Norton, McCaffe, etc.,) are crap!

As an AV programme I have found it very good so I will continue to use it until my subscription expires.

Shenstone suggested in another thread that our Gateway problem could be due to 1,000,000 new members applying to join the forum. I think however if that were the case, Ian would now be enjoying his retirement on a tropical island complete with helicopter, yacht and satellite dishes.

Re: The power of technology

The government web site has had quite an interesting journey in the last couple of days. The hit rate has been unprecedented.

It would be so good if Andrea Leadsom's comments from last evening were brought back to haunt her.

It seems some members are hell bent on turning any conceivable topic into a political debate. A closed "Politics Thread" with participation by application only might be worth consideration.
