So, because I’m tired of Coronatweets, and I’m stuck on a 3 hour plane and don’t want to do real work, I thought I’d distract you with some general thoughts on this year’s Eurovision songs, in my first #ESC2020 thread of the year
Not all the songs are out so far, but enough now to start forming opinions, and in general, this is going to be an awesomely amazing year. A much better showing all round than 2019, and possibly better than 2018 levels. Videos are here: youtube.com/playlist?list=…
Retro is big this year. From random cassettes and floppies in #GEO 🇬🇪 to pixel art in #ISL 🇮🇸 to... whatever you want to make of #RUS 🇷🇺... Retro has made a comeback

@charliekiss @Tara_Hewitt 1/ You are aware that NHS trust patient databases have, for some time now been required to have fields disclosing transition? Not the central one of all names, addresses, phone numbers, NHI number, & GP, fortunately though. I think I've avoided being so recorded, have you?
@charliekiss @Tara_Hewitt 2/ They did try to get it as required information in all electronic referrals, but we stopped that, but there's a national advisory committee run by all all the royal colleges pushing for it. It is likely the data from Equality Monitoring forms is used to fill gaps in the records
@charliekiss @Tara_Hewitt 3/ As you know, NHS records show current gender; they added a "Sex at Birth" field, which is labelled as "this will normally determine medical treatment". Yes, Really. They got that in without testing, consultation, or notice. I'd love to know what @UKTELI has done about it.

The most stunning revelation of #WNTTDevon came in the excellent chat after the outstanding event itself, although there were plenty of new (to me) and shocking facts from the speakers. I hope you’ll correct me if I have misunderstood.

I’d known that the GRC allowed the applicant to have their birth certificate legally falsified to show their sex as the opposite one to their birth and that the process was sealed so the public weren’t allowed to view the original certificate.

What I learned is that there is, apparently, no central record of the original name and sex of the person who has now stepped clean from the ordure of their past, all sins expunged, no questions asked.

Holy crap. Gemalto's IDPrime.NET cards - the ones they tout being Windows native compatible - are suscept. to factorization.
1) Researchers have found a process to duplicate a PRIVATE key just from the PUBLIC key. This is big.

And cheap, for a 1024bit key.
2) Gemalto are a large mfgr of smartcards. Their IDPrime.Net cards are popular because they work with Windows w/o extra software
