My computer displayed the following this morning:

 

"Windows version 11 does not currently meet the minimum security requirements to run on this PC. I still recommend using a Linux version."

This: Anti-5G bracelets and necklaces sold in Europe turn out to be radioactive | Newshub


Protect yourself from Radiation and mind control, by buying a radioactive bracelet and being irradiated! 



Already posted to the 5G thread.. In the unlikely event that someone has one of these, I'd love to borrow it to see what's in there.

 

 

An update on this, I ordered three of them from random different vendors in China at the time this came up and one of them turned up today, part of the long-lost shipments being covered in the Aliexpress thread. These things are definitely radioactive although the activity is quite low, after about 30 minutes it's starting to show a definite thorium spectrum, so your anti-5G pendant won't protect you from 5G if you can find some anywhere but you also probably don't want to wear it next to your body, not because it's a very high dose but because if any of whatever it's made of flakes off you don't want to inhale thorium dust.

That's disgraceful.

 

If there's one thing I can't stand, it's getting up so early in the morning.

That was not uncomfortable, we have a time difference and it was early evening for you. ;-)

Went down south to look at houses at the weekend. Spent Friday, Saturday and Sunday looking at a seemingly endless succession (about 12 probably).

 

Picked the one we wanted on Sunday night, banged offer in Monday, negotiated Tuesday, all signed today.

 

Sorted.

The car I bought arrived with only one key marked 'spare' and an apology. Owner apologised and offered to pay for one if I ordered it, but it didn’t sit well with me knowing he had numbered days to live and was in palliative care. Priced it and it was an eye watering $550 but I just accepted that it is what it is. Was going to organise it today.

Last night around midnight got a text from his wife that they found the key and were couriering it down
Am still smiling. Here's hoping I won’t ever be posting in the other thread with a lost courier parcel rant.

Nice. 

 

My wife lost one of the two proximity keys for one of our Mazdas several years ago, but she's just discovered that the proximity key for our other Mazda works for both of them. This rather makes me question the security of these things, to be honest.

Got a pretty interesting request in a data brief today (emphasis mine) 😆

 

each row needs a unique id in this format: GFT_DDMMYY-01. Each row will need the final number to increase in descending order i.e the next row would be GFT_DDMMYY-02 etc

Does it have to be implemented one fine day in the middle of the night?

That’s interesting. Does it mean that if she walks down the street near someone else’s Mazda and stops to have a chat with a friend in front of it, the doors will unlock. Seems very unsafe. I believe there are faraday type covers to keep such keys in. Was mulling over whether this was necessary.

I'm not sure I understand what the use case would be for putting the fob in a cage - unless you're worried about non-ionising radiation in your pocket / bag.

Blocking the signals from the fob won't stop your car being unlocked by someone else with their fob, if indeed that gaping security hole exists.

Kind of makes sense. Final number is increasing in descending order (ie. down the page)

 

 

 

GFT_DDMMYY-01   |

 

GFT_DDMMYY-02   |

 

GFT_DDMMYY-03   |

 

GFT_DDMMYY-04   |

 

GFT_DDMMYY-05   V

@Ge0rge

No not worried about radiation was only concerned the key would be better with a cover as the manual said it can be negatively affected by credit cards and phones. It sits in a handbag with all of these. Was searching and saw one on TM that blocks signal but then figured each time I want to use the car will have to rummage for the key and undress it to work.
