Whenever you request a web page your browser sends data to the web server, it's fairly standard technical stuff such as your IP address so the server knows where to send the response and other things related to how you want the data formatted (e.g. the browser you're using, the language/character set you want to use). However along with that O2 have included the phone number of the mobile making the request. There's no technical need for this and it's almost certainly an unintentional error on their behalf, but it is a breach of data protection.

I'd initially discounted him as some right wing blowhard following his very hawkish stance on Iraq and in other matters. One in particular was water-boarding, he was quite vocal on the matter, convinced that it was a necessary evil and not really torture. However unlike many pundits and politicians he had the courage to prove his point of view and had himself water-boarded by the professionals to demonstrate that concerns about it were overblown.
To his surprise the experience undermined his argument, - and this is why I respect him - but rather than quietly dropping the matter as I imagine many would do, he became just as vocal in his opposition of water-boarding, that it is in fact torture. When he was proven to be wrong about something, rather than ignoring the facts which didn't fit in with his preconceived viewpoint he publicly changed his stance, and for that and on other issues he has my respect.
If you haven't seen it I highly recommend reading the Vanity Fair article and watching the video he did about water-boarding.

My mother became lactose intolerant with age and it would seem to explain the symptoms I've been experiencing over the last year or so. It can be a little more serious than feeling a little bloated and feeling a little phlegmy after a milkshake and so for, about this time last year I woke up in such pain, nausea, etc. that I seriously wondered whether I was having a heart attack and was lying in bed cataloguing the symptoms and debating whether I should call an ambulance or not. Fortunately such hasn't reoccurred and a GP confirmed that my heart was fine. Internal pain like that is rather disconcerting and unpleasant, if you hurt a limb you can almost mentally distance yourself from the sensation, rather harder to do when it's within your core.
Though I could give soya milk a try does anyone have any recommendations for interesting teas to try without milk? What about cereals, do you not simply eat it, have it with water or soy milk?
