    In regards to the BA Hack you have to hope that a collated paste bin file gets added into Troy Hunts Have I been pwned.

    Oh and David, may I apologise for Carole’s insensitive comment regarding your surname, you came across as taking the comment well and maybe you know her well enough that this was taken in complete jest, however jest or not i found it quite insensitive.
