  1. Actually no because while the constituent countries that make up Britain (of course Ireland is not one of them), each of them has its own language, not just accent. Thus to suggest that there's a British accent while describing that as one recognised as quintessentially well spoken English, is not only somewhat disrespectful of those inhabitants of those countries but also demonstrating a lack of either education or awareness but that's another subject. But it's ok, I can just refer to this American accents of the Canadian Mounties or the American accents of the Mexicans or is it the
  2. So you mean a specific ENGLISH accent then? Not a British accent of which there's really no such thing.
  3. Precisely what does a British accent sound like? Do you mean Dai, the Welsh villain? Paddy the (Northern) Irish villain? Or Jock the Scottish villain? Or do you mean a stereotypically movie English accent? Clue: British accent is somewhat meaningless.
  4. Yes but... cyclists do own the roads as they have an implicit right to use them. Motorists have to be licensed to be permitted!
  5. and retaining potentially sensitive information within the corporate domain, much less likely to take a spanking from GDPR (depending on the nature of the data in question). The last thing that organisations need is data exfiltration via non approved methods.
  6. I don't believe they have anything for corporates. Maybe people who work collaboratively in a small organisation who don't mind playing "dress up" first and have no need to share anything such as presentation content. Beyond that I struggle to find any fit.
  7. Yes, they can try and I predict that if that's the plan, they will fail to gain traction, that's all. It's just too niche with such vastly different requirements to execute, delivering next to none of the standard requirements that the market has already demonstrated are what the customer base need. Where it probably would work perfectly would be to create a virtual environment for a virtual meeting room for inconclusive talks between vacuous UK government and the EU. Nothing productive would happen and no tools will have been harmed in the process.
  8. Possibly but they're missing the mark. It's not about the cost to education or anyone else, it's about the requirements of the platform upon which to run the client and the user interface to achieve three main presentation tasks, those being slide presentation, whiteboard and screen share. Without those, it's a dead duck for at least 99.67% of the intended customer base, more so when up against incumbents where the only requirement is a browser, or mobile app which can do all of the above tasks with ease. Does a lecturer comprise a virtual avatar professor without any decent establishe
  9. Other than they'd just become another "me too" in a market of existing, established incumbents.
  10. Thank you! That's the one, I forgot which "King" Linden it was at the time, I left SL quite a long time ago now. It really needs to be accessible in a web browser, very limited in scope and frankly, by the time you've done all that and made it conference ready, it's just NOT SL at all. Without any method to share content, I mean REALLY share content, even something as basic for business as a powerpoint or a screen share, then it's a non starter and please nobody suggest media on a prim, i'm talking about native integrated support. Remote meetings typically need so much more than just t
  11. They tried selling "SL behind the firewall", I forget what that was called but that was when the CEO at the time (forgotten his name) thought that the money was in business, completely ignored the consumer playing base and tried to market SL to corporates. That didn't end well.
  12. SL has always been a very poor platform for remote working/team working etc. other than for a few niche areas where like minded individuals have made it work. For most people, remote working comprises either VPN or VDI such that they can connect to and access corporate resources and then perform all their usual functions, such as Office 365 for documents, or utilise other web based SaaS applications. For video conferencing, multiple choices available from Skype, MS Teams, Webex, Zoom etc. all of which need nothing more than a web browser at minimum. I manage my team like this who are
  13. I haven't said you wouldn't get to know (you or anyone else). What I said was that your service is with LL, not the cloud provider. LL cannot provide an SLA greater than that of their provider (well they could but would be dumb to try) and their SLA is absolutely zilch so they're hot to trot! Cloud provision isn't vital to the functioning of any network, only to those who choose to consume the compute, service and storage resources that may be offered over any network. This seems moot at this time however. I'm not sure that there's an assumption that things get better with moving to clou
  14. Just to pick up on this piece, why do you think you need to know? Your service is provided by LL, the cloud provider (if relevant) provides service to LL. Do you know what material the pipes are made of that transport your domestic water? Which route they take? What redundancy they have in place? What their operational plans are for a targeted terrorist attack? My guess is no. You pay your water company against an SLA and they in turn deliver you water, in accordance with that SLA (or not). You're over thinking it and yes, you can complain, you can ask whatever questions but tha
  15. That's a question that should be posed to LL. They set the TOS, not me. BTW, people always have the right to complain, just that it might confer no rights with regard to remediation, per whatever TOS they've agreed and signed up to.
