Forgive me for not following Aussie news, but what's an Optus data breach, and how are you involved?

Optus is one of our largest telcos. They left their computer systems exposed and hackers got all the data of all their customers. Names, addresses, birthdates, drivers license numbers, passports etc. 10 million Australian’s have lost their data to hackers. Considering there are only 25 million people in Australia it’s been a major catastrophe here.

And the same volcano footage from 'Volcano' . . .

Wow. So you have to change all your bank details and everything? So sorry to hear that.

I've just been reading up on this - it sounds terrible! I hope your data is secure again now.

Doran's costume is a bit like what student nurses used to wear. The same colours, anyway. But dirtier.


I think if I were in a hospital and he showed up, I'd check myself out!

So they made sure we know Scorpio is an old ship - so it doesn't matter that everything looks like it's nearly 50 years out of date.

Hindsight is a marvellous thing. I think if you didn't know he was really a Sea Creature, he's be quite a charmer.

Yep. People are even being told to get new drivers license and passports but a week ago there was actually no way of doing this as computer systems and laws only allowed for change of these documents in the event of someone actually stealing money from you. So both the federal and state governments have had to hastily change a lot of computer systems and laws.

No, I think he's got 'wrong 'un' written all over him.

Xenon is a very weird shade of green.
 
M1795537OCVirn
Why on Earth (or on Xenon) would Soolin say 'This is Xenon base..." She's the only person likely to call him, and he knows where she is.

Do you realise ‘past’ customers are affected? As Optus still had their data in their system. You might want to follow up with Optus just to check if your data has been included in the hack or not.

I miss the old gang but since they updated with new ship & actors I'm getting to like them. In all the entire series is by far one of if not the best ever created.

Yeah good question.

Good idea, Avon. If Dorian's carrying something, he can't reach for a weapon.

Thanks Tyce I'll look into that, never occurred to me but it's been over 20 odd years or more since then.

I so incredibly like the look on Soolin’s face when she pushes Avon’s gun out of the way.

She likes the sound of herself saying it?

Still trying to work out why Dorian was the way he was? As I see it he took people down below & he got their youth & that's how he stayed young or am I missing something?

If it’s 20 years back you might be okay. But I know people who were customers 6 or 7 years ago have been hacked.

Nope, I think you've got it.
Of course, it's a take on Oscar Wilde's ' The picture of Dorian Grey' where the portrait aged but the man didn't.

Pity other members here aren't here to join in. Seeing the membership is growing rapidly each week. Be even better if we or some to have a social night out. I know it's difficult due to vast distances etc. Just a passing thought

I think that's right. The monster absorbs them, and that allows it to absorb more of Dorian's negativity, and gives him his youth back.

If Tarrant is puffed out going ‘down’ the stairs how the heck is he going to get back up?

Saw several photos of Supreme Commander Servalan on fb outstanding photos showing several different shots & her magnificent wardrobe of clothes.
Always admired her dress sense very modern & trendy.
