Johannes - you are correct! I didn't make 100% clear what I was talking about there was the Copyright reform - which was getting modellers worried.


In relation to GDPR, I agree 100% with your views. It is a good thing, it is actually very easy to implement and easy to audit (I have done both for a number of companies now). If the practical aspects in relation to implementation ever interest you, PM and we can discuss off Forum.

What puzzles me is the reluctance of companies to implement it, or in Europe/UK implement it properly.

Even worse is the lack of understanding amongst foreign companies - banks, travel agents and airlines are obvious examples if you think about it. Wait for the first fines?

The other concern is that given it is easy to implement, why are large companies outside Europe ducking the issue - does this imply in some instance their data handling is suspect? All debatable and interesting, but not a subject for debate on this Forum.

Again if you want to, we can go off the Forum and discuss.

It seems that our French friends aren't able to access the forum as well, I have suggested they try the VPN route like their Germany neighbors.

I have been talking with Jason, and we are confused as to why only 2 countries, out of the 195 countries across the globe, have access problems with the forum.

I have asked him if there is anything we as a forum can suggest, or assist with, he is checking with others at this time.

Beyond that, my knowledge is quickly hitting its limits.

I had issues connecting to some far off places,getting VPN cured all issues.

VPNs often have settings and functions to be tended to-don't skip that.Learning how to use your VPN can be hard part.

Probably another red herring, but as y'all running out of suggestions ...

Last year I gave up using AVG free antivirus because it was giving too many false positives, including PM and Zealot forums. I switched to Avast free for a bit, but that didn't prove to be any better. Around this time Defender started getting good reviews and was listed 2nd, below Kaspersky but above MacAfee and way above AVG or Avast. I just couldn't bring myself to trust the Russian software so I switched to Defender and have had no trouble since. From a belt & braces point of view, I do also have 10bit Malware Fighter ticking over in the background, but it has never flagged up anything that slipped through Defender, so I assume Defender is doing the job OK.

AVG and Avast are often listed well up among the best free antivirus available, but they don't like the unsecured http: websites. So could it be that these are causing the access problems for our members?
Keep on snippin' ... Johnny
