That right-hand parting has completely thrown me - is that weird
What's going on?
If your clearance is/was sponsored by CESG and you're wondering what to do now CLAS is closing, you should have received an e-mail yesterday offering a possible solution. Drop me a line if you haven't seen it and I'll pass on details.
I often switch BBC Parliament on at night, just before sleep (it helps me doze off when away from home ;-).
Usually it's reasonably interesting.
Tonight, they seem to be broadcasting the most boring of day-to-day political business (from NI).
Is there something going on?
Specialists operating as independents are more than capable of moving to and working in more "friendly" countries.
What's funny, though. Is watching them filter in/out. Are they unaware that there's a live TV feed over the entrance? The number of people I see that have obviously spent the past 4 hours in the pub is astonishing... The House was almost empty for the debate, now it's almost full, and so the vast majority are filtering in with:
"What are we supposed to vote on?"
"Can you help me to my seat?"
"Am I supposed to go to the right or left?"
"Wow, not seen this place before. So cool."
"Come on, it's closing time soon!"
There was one old guy clearly staggering as he entered.
These people run our country.
Just realised, it's not actually that funny :-(
Number of CLAS (and ex-CLAS) consultants listed on TSAR (https://www.trustedsecurityadvisersregister.com/register/?type=cred&id=CLAS): 120
Sad, but at the same time glad that TSAR might continue serving customer needs...
"There's some things I don't put into electrons at all."
That's the decision for everyone, really - start by assuming that everything you "make electronic" will be compromised at some point, by somebody, and keep in mind the total aggregated sum of what you have "put into electrons", and you'll already be a long way towards being one of the survivors of the upcoming AI apocalypse (!)
Me? My electron-based footprint is all assumed to be public domain (now or in the future). You can find it all really easily through Google. If you can't, tell me - I might need to improve my SEO ;-)
But the stuff I didn't "put into electrons"? That's mine, you can't have it. Nor can anybody trying to get it via the Internet. I haven't converted it into electrons at all.
