You may think I am being paranoid, but I am not. I have had one known brush with industrial espionage.

About 15 years ago I went down the harbour to do a pre-shipment inspection on some very large Siemens electrical motors and had some problems with some pretty obtuse warehouse people. They refused to open up one crate, so I told them unless they do, the shipment would not be signed off and the ships deadline was less than 24 hours away.

So I called the project coordinator at Siemens in Munich with my cell phone, but within 30 seconds the connection was gone, he had hung up, a few seconds later my phone rang and the coordinator told me that his desk phone had indicated that someone else was listening in to our conversation.

No prizes for guessing who! Only one country in the world had the technology to do this back then.

It is no wonder why certain allies are being threatened for using Huawei technology in future 5G networks, but what is the alternative and where is it being manufactured. Should we be worried that this other country may be intending to do exactly what they are accusing the Chinese of intending to do!

Do you think I am still paranoid??? 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 For the "five eyes" community!

Perhaps. But if they really wanted to spy on me or get the "hidden secrets" of DB1 it would be a lot easier for the NSA and GCHQ to subscribe to my YouTube channel.  That way I'd have two more subscribers on my quest for 100K.

😎

As of this writing, I need 37 more subscribers to hit the magic mark, assuming of course that no one unsubscribes before then!

Well, in that case, there are more than 37 people working at GCHQ, MI5 & MI6!

I'll ask them, and then you can open your celebratory can of Labatt Blue! 🍻

So do you call them directly, or do we just assume they have your phone tapped!

😬 😱

I doubt very much whether that might happen, I believe we are all waiting with bated breath for the next extraordinary episode db1's adventure!

As a dissident Brexit exile, probably the latter!

Amusingly I just checked my subscriber list and I do have a "B. Johnson" as a subscriber. Perhaps Boris is also interested in the Raspberry Pi?

Now I have a dilemma, I need to get started on my weekend housecleaning but I have 31 to go and I want to record the moment for posterity. Guess I'll have to bring my tablet with me while I clean the upstairs bathroom!
