    Where is SCB

    Having worked in the IT Security industry, there is no way to be 100% secure. Anything can be tracked and traced - just a question of resource (machine/human time and money). All depends on the value of the information as to whether it is worthwhile.

    Where is SCB

    With IT skills, he will no doubt become self-employed and will be able to pick up contracting work from anywhere in the word. Will have to lose his attitude though. Not sure whether he will have to declare his absence from the workplace either.
  3. Yes, the play off was the worst meeting seen at the NSS by a country mile.. The track was too grippy and too fast, with NKI breaking the Track Record, a record which he still holds today.
  4. I for one do. As play-offs and KOC are based on aggregate scores, we would have got full value for Jye's scores at home.
  5. Just takes Lambert to perform like he did in Sweden last night and BV can win this, against the odds.
  6. Agree with this. Max met Lambert and Iversen twice during his programmed rides, whilst for Rohan it was once. Max had taken Lambert from the back in a thrilling Heat 11 and was caught up with a slower Cook in Heat 13, as they both tried to hunt down the KL pair. Rohan struggled a tad to beat MPT in Heat 14, so on balance I was expecting it to be Max & Dan. Dan will learn from Heat 15 - he was passed by an excellent Iversen, but had drifted out a bit. Really good meeting between two evenly matched teams.
  7. Sadly MPT does not need to have gating gloves on around the NSS. Quite capable of makes passes at our place.

    Betting in 2018

    Just closed my account with Betsafe as they were limiting me to winnings of approx. £5 on speedway. When I queried this, I was told that it was a business decision. What a joke of an outfit Betsafe is, a disgrace to the word Bookmaker. They make the handicaps, they offer the odds, but whatever you do just don't win, otherwise you run the risk of being victim of a business decision too.
  9. I'm not. It was bad enough when the M.E.N. was owned by the Guardian, but since it's been owned by Mirror Group, the news content has deteriorated to a level which makes it nothing more than a rag. When I saw the picture of the Lib-Dem Councillor, all I wanted to do was to turn him upside down and use him as a pneumatic drill. He's your typical wishy-washy waste of space. No mention of the council screwing up, delivering a track that wasn't fit for purpose, which was where the problems started.
  10. Don't worry, Tungate did the honours with Jye in Heat 14 though.
  11. True. Track prep was superb last night - contrast this with the dust fest served up at Swindon on Monday. My point is that at Belle Vue they have delayed the start a few times to let people in, but have no consideration for people who expect the meeting to end at a certain time to meet other commitments. Yes, I can understand it in extreme circumstances, if say the M56/M60/A57 was closed, but why should people who expect the meeting to start on time have to hang around because people turn up late?
  12. Excellent meeting with some great racing. Late start due to exchanging tickets (only at main Ticket Office) and late arrival of Ambulance (can't be helped). What gets me is that there is no consideration whatsoever for those people who arrive on time for a 7:30 start - not just this meeting, but in general. People may have arrangements in place (trains to catch, etc.) for after the meeting, yet these seem discounted in favour of a needless interval.
