Well after numerous failed attempts to update the website software I contacted the web hosting support. They responded quickly admitting it was a known issue and pointed me to a workaround which worked a treat. Nice to see that not all help desks are a waste of space.
This update was a pain in the arse. I just could not get any enthusiasm for it. It wasn’t helped by the fact that different cameras and lighting set-ups were used so as hard as I tried colour matching the sets was impossible.
So the age verification systems due to be enforced on all UK porn sites in April as part of the Digital Economy Act is to be delayed until later in the year so that further “public consultation” can take place. Good job. I’ve not heard anybody who has a clue how it is going to work and that includes the overpaid members of the quango charged with setting it up and policing it.
