Mrs W and I were watching Fringe last night where Olivia goes over to the other version of the world to help the other Olivia, her of reddish hair a fringe and more macho than our world version of Olivia.
For some reason our world Olivia seems to have been turned into a dowdy, bad hair day frump.
Anyway, in walks General Broyles in his trademark tight T shirt and puffed up chest, their version of our more kindly Department of Homeland Security boss Phillip Broyles who wears a ‘whistle and flute’ (suit), but hold up General Broyles was killed when he was helping to transfer our Olivia back to our world.
I’m sure when he came through the hole between the worlds, in an earlier series, he didn’t come through complete in body parts he certainly was dead.
I suppose at some point when Fringe aficionados start questioning his reappearance an obscure reason why he has come back to life will emerge, after all it’s only a tv programme or is it.
This made me laugh a blog reader emailed me that he overheard in a bar in Margate the brother of Luke Lucas, he’s the 16-year-old kid contestant, say “Don’t you know who I am?”
Yeah me old china, you’re the brother of the kid who was chucked out of X Factor because he can’t sing.
Cyber space crime
A unit of the Metropolitan Police has saved the UK economy more than £140 million in the past six months and is well on course to exceed its four year “harm reduction” target.
The central e-crime unit has delivered nearly 30% of its £504m target in this initial period alone.
The figure relates to the amount of money the UK has been prevented from losing through cyber crime and has been achieved following a number of successful prosecutions and operations by the unit.
Even criminals are beginning to work from home these days.
Funding of £30m has been provided over four years to support the development of the unit as it tackles cyber crime incidents of computer intrusion, denial of service attacks and internet enabled fraud.
