Going slightly off topic here but mixing alaphets has been used to spread fake news:

Quote
Kremlin supporters suspected to be behind fraudulent articles designed to look like they came from Le Soir and the Guardian

The people behind the fraudulent article built a website that looked similar to the original and made the domain name look plausible by replacing the i in Guardian with a Turkish ı.

The high tech look lost a little with the use of the elastic bands to secure bolt on parts and the credit card to re-pack the 'chute. :blink:

Yeah, I was surprised the promo video showed the 'chute being re-packed with the aid of a credit card, thought it made the drone look a bit unfinished, design-wise. But maybe the message is, "No expensive special tools required".

Hopefully it might be good for spotting someone starting fires.

Thanks for the re-post of this, Maik.  Helps explain why I couldn't find any Greek language crime fiction in the bookshop in Ioannina last May- apart from translations of US/British books, of which there were quite a few, but which I didn't want.  I was trying to find something with relatively easy vocabulary and which reflected modern Greek society and language.  In the end I followed the a recommendation from the assistant and got Το Σπίτι με τους Πέτρινους Αέτους (The House with the Stone Eagles) for only €4 as it turned out - a bargain for a Greek book.  Fairly much reflected the first two criteria though not terrifically well written which has led me to pause it.  Greek language review on Goodreads - looks like with spoilers.

The Paul Johnson books are not on Kindle but have just bought the first one s/h via Amazon £0.01 plus £2.80 p+p.

Should be helpful with all the fires on Kef lately - and elsewhere.
