I can understand why you would avoid Chrome, with all the Google tracking it performs. If you like the browser, though, you can go for the open source browser it is based upon, Chromium, or one of the others based on Chromium, like Vivaldi or Opera. What's the issue with Firefox? With the right extensions it is as secure as you'll get without going to Tor (also based on Mozilla).

Cheers ST. I have firefox now but just wanted an alternative as it often fails to respond on my very old laptop. I avoid Chrome like the plague, I just don't trust google. I've used Tor before, may download it again and I'll have a butchers at those other two you suggested.

Well, Brave is just another Chromium port, with some security features, like using the Tor network for private pages, and the ability to download torrents without another client (better remember your VPN if you go there). Nothing wrong with that at all, but I don't find it faster than others once I have the needed extensions installed. (ie 1Password, uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, HTTPS Everywhere, Decentraleyes, Disable HTML5 Autoplay). I think it's great we have such choices though, and keep a lot of browsers around as some sites seem to work with one better than another. I just wish there was a working utility to synchronise all the bookmarks.

First thing I and my new friends did on arrival in London was to check out Soho. Both hilarious and sad.

The Beeb World Service tells me the police have been arresting everyone blocking Oxford Circus today, save for Dame Emma Thompson, who was allowed to inflame the crowd and then slip away unmolested by any bobbies. C'est la fucking vie, as they say in Montreal. Poor Montreal, now she has to cope with shit like this:
Muslim politician says Notre Dame fire was divine retribution, firefighters should sleep in local church
Rather sad that USA Today is the only English media I can find reporting her disgrace.

Emma Thompson is a discount Judy Dench.

Also, the news of Sargon being slammed by the media for his not-a-threat just reinforces they don't care one jot about context and are only in it for outrage clicks.

Here I thought Jess Philips laughing when the subject of male suicide was brought up in relation to International Men's Day, and the reason she got the backlash she did in the first place, would point some much needed scrutiny in her direction, but I guess not. Silly me.

Far better actress, too. In fact, we're having a Judy Dench performance for Easter Dinner.

On Thirsday 22,000 bikers rode their motorcycles through London to parliament in a protest against the prosecution of British soldiers in Northern Ireland 40+ years after they served, apparently it's now a 'war crime' to have filled an IRA scumbag full of lead. Yesterday (Good Friday) a thousand plus ex squaddies led by former paras marched through London to parliament as part of the same protest, more events are planned this weekend I gather. I doubt you'll hear about it in the press much or see any footage on Aunty Beeb or her ugly sisters SKY & Channel4. What you will see though is endless coverage of smelly posh hippy beatnicks prancing around the streets and thoroughfares super gluing themselves to railings and window panes because the UK being responsible for 0.02% of the worlds greenhouse gas emissions is worse than Hiter or something.

Once of Islam's biggest selling points is that it encourages a move up from bestiality to pedophilia, with mere rape of women captured in battle attainable by the holiest of the holy.

It was considered naughty in those days, but the best places in Soho were the Rasa Sayang restaurant, and Cheapo Cheapo records. You just had to be careful not to trip over Jeffrey Bernard if he was on the sidewalk. Eventually, my stag party was at Raymond's RevueBar. Happy days!

My earliest memory of Soho was in the 1970s when an older brother (10 years senior) took me to "Dark The Were & Golden Eyed" in St Annes Court . He was heavily into Science Fiction. Me into Marvel probably barely into my teens, if that.
It was pretty seedy back them before the crackdown on a lot of establishments with strange publications in their windows , though not sure how much of the local scenery I noticed at the time.

There was also one of the best ever SciFi bookshops in St Anne's Court: Dark They Were, And Golden-Eyed. Plus a great burger bar in Berwick St (can't remember the name), and the Essential Cinema club on Wardour Street. Soho was my place to hang out when I was a teenager in London in the '70s.

My earliest memory of Soho was in the 1970s when an older brother (10 years senior) took me to "Dark The Were & Golden Eyed" in St Annes Court . He was heavily into Science Fiction. Me into Marvel probably barely into my teens, if that.
It was pretty seedy back them before the crackdown on a lot of establishments with strange publications in their windows , though not sure how much of the local scenery I noticed at the time.
Fuck you, you fucking :nin:

Question for the pit ...

Does anyone know of a carbon tax implementation that was not a scam from day one?
Part 2 is about the practicality of carbon pricing.

Some of this is not unkown to me.

Before Soho's reputation receded, it proceeded itself - bleeding out into the larger culture through such things as the Jeffrey Bernard play (I recall Peter O'Toole doing an intervew to promote his performance in it) and passing mention in the 'Rumpole at Christmas' story collection. Spike Milligan mentioned the problems with censorship - to whit the static naked female form was artistic - but became pornographic if any movement occurred. (Possibly a referrence to issues experienced at the Windmill club).

This being the 21st century - there is an app - Barry Cryer takes you on a (virtual) walking tour.

Quite glad I did not mention 'Dark They Were and Golden Eyed' (which I only every knew about by reputation and after the fact).

Forbidden Planet is currently celebrating it's 40th though.

That place was my home-from-home in my teens. My GF was dragged there every Saturday but proved highly resistant to the charms of H.R. Giger, Clive Barker and numerous other delights. However, she did develop a rather nasty Terry Pratchett habit which she eventually passed onto me.

Oh, and as for Soho, all I think of when I hear the name is this epic character created by Rob Newman...

We bought membership cards for the Essential Cinema Club, mostly for late night showings of Woodstock, Easy Rider, 2001, and Solaris.

Last time I went there was to get my Family Planning Certificate, on a two day course at a clinic on the south side of Soho Square, taught by John Guillebaud. I am officially allowed to size you for a diaphragm, or ram an IUD into you. Watch out.

Small world, innit?

Did you ever go to King Edward's Cinema? That was the hangout for the RHPS folks.

Don't know that one. I did develop a strong liking for sci-fi and wherever I lived I would visit second hand book shops and spend a pound a week on used sci-fi books. Not at 'Dark They Were and Golden Eyed' though, as by the time I was buying sci-fi I lived in Tufnell Park, Crouch End and then Stratford. A Saturday spent acquiring some Heinlein and consuming some Balkan Sobranie Mixture was a day well spent.

In other news, this is supposedly the "heavyweight match" between Jordan Peterson and Marxist philosopher Slavoj Zizek.
According to comments, the audience reactions keep getting in the way and having just quickly sampled a few bits Zizek speaks with a constant irritating slobbering nasal whistle in his voice which meant I am unlikely to be able to sit through it.
Sorry for posting - probably for Peterson Addicts only.

Also, the news of Sargon being slammed by the media for his not-a-threat just reinforces they don't care one jot about context and are only in it for outrage clicks.

Here I thought Jess Philips laughing when the subject of male suicide was brought up in relation to International Men's Day, and the reason she got the backlash she did in the first place, would point some much needed scrutiny in her direction, but I guess not. Silly me.
Jess has got the Brianna/BeckyBooz "I'm the victim, even though I started it by repeatedly saying snarky insulting shit" routine down to a T. Naturally, the media and normies fall for it, and despite the fact that a lot of genuine shit does get thrown at her from various sources, including the Corbyn cult (she's critical of Saint Jeremy), the media never coutenance any criticism of her.

I'd still do Emma in a heartbeat. Dench, not on your life.

Far better actress, too. In fact, we're having a Judy Dench performance for Easter Dinner.
I thought Thompson's version of Sweeney Todd was quite good:

What's hilarious is she shot back with this on Twitter:
"Carl Benjamin will forever have whatever career he has defined by me, he will hear my name wherever he goes.

"His whole political life defined by little feminist Jess, that my friends is comedy."
"Feminist" Jess Phillips. Because scoffing at men killing themselves is a feminist thing to do, apparently. Yet another reason why I don't call myself a feminist.
