    If you're running Android 9 or later, you don't even need the app. Just follow these instructions: https://blog.cloudflare.com/enable-private-dns-with-1-1-1-1-on-android-9-pie/

    Irate Visitors Rage Here, If You Must.

    Found a fix for not being able to view this site on my phone. It seems that my provider is blocking the site by simply refusing to answer DNS queries. By installing the free app (it's available for Android and iOS) you can redirect DNS over an encrypted link instead, which you provider can't block.

    The Dead of 2019

    One fascinating musical fact - the drummer from The Stranglers was born before the drummer from Buddy Holly & The Crickets.

    Alex Trebek

    The opposite - there was an American game show, Trump Card, developed from the show.

    Dead Pop Stars

    Some of the sales of 'My Best Friend's Girl' were undoubtedly due to it being issued as a picture disc, which was somewhat rare at the time. There was another single from the same era that charted purely due to it being issued on a square record.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    Dave Rainford is still missing from Eggheads, as I mentioned about 6 months ago, but is still appearing in the show's opening credits. Furthermore his Twitter account has been deleted - previously it stated that he was off the show due to illness, but he hoped to back on the show by now.

    September 11th

    At the time I worked for a UK company testing financial systems, and this involved speaking by phone to various companies and organisations all over the world to ensure that their system worked properly with the test servers based in our office. Some of the companies I had previously tested with were based in WTC 2, WTC 5 and WTC 7. I've no idea to this day if my contacts survived or not.

    The Dead of 2019

    The publishers of the original book, or the estate of the author, will be pulling the strings. Often they don't want something to be re-shown to the public, or sold commercially, as it could impact sales of rights to future adaptations of the works. In some cases publishers have asked for the adaptation to be destroyed after broadcast.

    The Dead of 2019

    Most likely a rights issue, as is common with book adaptations.

    Boris Johnson

    Assuming he's still alive by December 31st, of course. He may have suffered the same fate as his paternal great-grandfather by then. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ali_Kemal Yes, his paternal great-grandfather was named Ali Kemal.
