Fair play for fixing this quickly when it was reported. However, from what you’ve said and how this works, this means that the MSISDN is shared with trusted partners over plain HTTP (because you can't interfere with SSL sessions in the same way, it means this information *can't* be injected into a secure request). In other words, by design, the passing of subscriber data to “trusted partners” can *only* happen insecurely. This is phenomenally poor design. Will you be reviewing your approach to single sign-on and update us with progress? (Note: I’m not an O2 subscriber any more, but I am a giffgaff customer, so this still affects me).

Best of luck, Hugh. We've not worked together, so I only have the audience view of stuff you've been involved in to go on, but I hope your "20% time" goes well. My hunch is that, given this: “Despite being here for so long I still get excited when I walk through the door like it's my first day every day.” …you'll spend a couple of years doing all manner of interesting stuff before finding yourself adorned with a BBC lanyard again to get that feeling back every morning. It's an irresistible force :)

11. You can't do everything Other people will almost always be working on similar things or in similar areas to you, and trying to do everything yourself is a recipe for disaster. Keep your eyes and ears open and figure out when to work with others and build on what they've done. 12. Don't flog a dead horse Don't keep at things just because you've invested a lot of time and effort in it: sometimes projects, however dear to your heart, need to be put out of their misery — and doing that gives you the freedom to move on to something new. Throw things at walls, see what sticks. Sometimes it'll be nothing, sometimes it'll be a lot.
