Flogging a dead horse a little here I suppose but here are a couple of interesting links about the current nonsense situation.

UK security authorities say there wasn't really any risk to passengers, they were well on top of the terrists.

Security Aviation expert Michael Boyd outlines some of the reasons why the new measures are worthless. (link to a video)

Bruce Schneier, (who olethros got me reading last week) is now less than positive about the new measures and outlines some excellent reasons why there're worthless. This is in sharp contrast to the opinions he outlined last week.

I sort of figured all these things were the case but it is comforting to see that people smarter than I also hold those opinions.

We've got a reception/admin job going here at the moment. This is a very cool place to work and chances are it'll only get cooler. Bear in mind, this is me saying this. We're moving fast though so you'll want to get in quick. Mail CVs to mrwombat at gmail dot com.
