    That's what I like to hear, thanks.

    mrs_com has a propensity to just jam the plunger in and fuck up the edges of the screen/mesh/filter so cheap helps.

    We have one, light starts to build/increase to whatever level you set it to the night before from 30 min before whatever alarm you set. I mostly find it handy to not have to fumble about to turn on a light when the alarm goes off. Other than that I don't know if it has any other kind of effect.

    Also handy if either of us have a very early start and don't want to annoy the other too much. Just set a lower brightness.

    Being able to snooze it by giving it a whack is also satisfying.

    The Google harvesting ploy I saw recently was good. All they needed was access to one user and then it spread from there. They sent it to that user's contacts (and so on and so forth) so that the recipient wouldn't think it odd to receive a message from patient zero. It was formatted to only really work in a gmail inbox view. The email itself was just "here is that file/PDF I promised" and below there was what looked like a PDF attachment. Except, the "attachment" was actually a hyperlinked image to a convincing fake Google Drive login page. The victim would just think they had clicked on a PDF and needed to log in to Drive to view it. Once they enter their credentials, the login link would then take them to the real Drive page so they would just think there has been a glitch, log in again and be taken to their own real Drive page, not knowing that the phishers now had their Google (+ebay +PayPal etc etc) credentials.

    Then they complete a transaction on ebay for an item they have set up, contact the victim from ebay who thinks someone else has fucked up so they might get something for free/cheap and hand over money through bank transfer for a nonexistent item/chunk of cryptocurrency.

    Do you use the same for anything else?

    Did you have the same login details for Google and EBay?

    It's advance feed fraud. They probably got your google credentials by getting you to click a fake google drive link or similar some time ago. Their message even says they will only take bank transfer. Just change all your passwords and set up Last Pass, keep an eye on any bank accounts, PayPal etc and you'll be OK. Report any odd behaviour.

    It's a horrendous event completely irrespective of the detail.

    Absolutely

    Having seen an HGV/pedestrian fatality first hand, I could understand the driver of the initial vehicle not stopping, it is unfortunately possible for them to just not know. But then this case seems odd. How did three other drivers become involved and not stop? How do they know there were three others?

    Best not to speculate right now I suppose.

    RIP
