Submission + - Swiss Army Knife Hacking Challenge - Win £10 (

Joe writes: "Pen Knife Challenge — Win £100,0000

Victorinox are launching a new Swiss Army knife featuring a USB stick that has biometric encryption and a further program that monitors usage patterns: if anything out of the ordinary occurs it will email the owner and if no reply arrives, the data drive will self destruct. All very Mission Impossible!

To launch the knife, and test the hardware, they are holding an event at their Bond Street Store over Thursday 25th and Friday 26th March allowing people to attempt to access the knife. Each participant receives a two hour slot and would-be code-breakers can form teams of up to three people. Any person or team that succesfully cracks the knife will win a staggering £100,000.

The day promises to be great fun with hacker teams from all over the UK taking part. All participants will receive the knife itself and a £200 shopping voucher. View the challenge rules and book a hack slot at

Good luck!"

I wish it was 4x£10! A recently booked flight cost £198.19.

I'm travelling to Maribor, the other end of Slovenia. That makes Graz airport nearer. I once managed to fly direct to Maribor, but Ryanair made some strange demands that Maribor wouldn't entertain, so Ryanair stopped flying there.

I rely on our rail service as much as I do Ryanair! Agreed, re York to (wherever), but I have to get to York first. Once you factor in the time and cost, it's quicker and cheaper just to drive down the A1 to Stanstead.

In an ideal world, American Airlines would fly from Robin Hood to Maribor. But, I don't think that's likely to happen.

Okay, so Ryanair prices aren't exactly first class.

What I was implying was that Ryanair prices aren't anywhere near as cheap as they claim. Between seat quote and payment, the price often multiplies 4x.

Their service still sucks though.

I just wish a "quality" airline would fly from a local(ish) airport to Slovenia. At the moment I'm having to drive from Yorkshire to Stanstead, then get a flight to Austria. :o(
