  1. Most of England north of the Humber was run by the Danes - the Danelaw https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danelaw And of course ultimately, in the shape of The Normans, they came back again 150 years after Alfred had defeated them.
  2. Edinburgh was at the centre of the medical world in the c18th and c19th, hence the need for cadavers. Many Edinburgh graveyards still have a watch house or watch tower in them, to guard against grave robbers:
  3. The credit card payment page should really be using a hosted Paypal page, instead of POSTing via a form on the website.
  4. I would have no concerns with that. My Paypal account is associated with my primary debit card. The issue I have with debit cards is inputting the details into an online form. I would never do that. With the one exception being the one time process of adding the card to Paypal, who I trust.
  5. With respect, the developers have checked to see if files have changed unexpectedly. They haven't, so that has ruled out one of many potential sources of issues. Arguably the least likely, but definitely the most straightforward to check. Not the same as checking if your site has a vulnerability. Your developers are rarely the people that find vulnerabilities on the sites they build. Most web developers I know don't truly understand what makes a website vulnerable. They pull open source code off the web willy-nilly, they produce web sites that are vulnerable to cross site scripting almost as a matter of course. Most would struggle to explain, definitively, how everything [DNS, etc] works to get content into a browser from initial HTTP request. I'm not suggesting BF need to do more, merely clarifying that there is actually plenty more that can be done to give a site a reasonably clean bill of health.
  6. I always use a Paypal account, which I do not keep signed in. This means that at the point of completing the transaction, I get taken off to Paypal's site and I am not entering data ie my username and password anywhere other than on Paypal's site. I don't use debit cards for online payment, period. When you use a form on a website which is not clearly an iframe from a payment gateway, it is difficult to tell where the data is being posted. Or whether, indeed, javascript in your browser is quietly hoovering it up and firing it off somewhere in the background.
  7. Supply chain attack is much more common than a malicious third party changing your javascript. Pretty much all websites consist of a combination of bespoke coding and open source code and libraries. The open source stuff may be getting pulled afresh into a website's codbase every time a new build of the website takes place. Or, javascript on one's site may well be in turning calling third party scripts. This is what happened to British Airways, whose customer's were exposed to a key logger due to third party libraries having been exploited. I've been working on extremely high volume websites for 20 years. The attack surface has changed markedly in the last 4 or 5.
  8. No, just a wee joke for those of us that have been around games for a long time.
  9. Have Steve and Derek Smart ever been seen together at the same time?
  10. The Uncons are a bit of a disappointment. Partly because of the lack of vehicles in QB, and partly because of the lack of diversity (seeing 40 plus guys all wearing the same tracksuit top). Considering how easily the diversity was modded in the last game (I created a dozen variants in less than a day)
  11. Ok, so that particular CPU boosts up to 3.6Ghz. I would regard 30-35 FPS as ok, in that context. Basically the performance is CPU limited, for all of us. It runs on a single core, so the faster the better. You might notice the stutters less if you use Nvidia Inspector to limit the frame rate to 30, and set vsync on. You will get fewer peaks and troughs. Be thankful it isn't Scourge of War Waterloo - I get FPS in the teens at times and that is with a 8600K @5Ghz and a GTX 1080 !
  12. What sort of frame rates are you getting? I would expect 20 to 30 on that kit, on Best settings. Over the years I have had GTX 580, 680, 980 and now 1080. It makes little odds, it is the CPU that has the biggest impact. I think your CPU turbos up to 3.9Ghz, which is middling.
  13. Please change thread title to "good performance" It is worth limiting the FPS to 30 in the Nvidia settings and then enabling vsync, you will get fewer peaks and troughs which will make it smoother. Frame rates will respond well to overclocking (you should be able to get your CPU to 4.2Ghz without much effort).
