A Dalek has mysteriously turned up at an Exeter, England elementary school. Nobody has claimed it. Davros could not be reached for comment.
"We'd like to return him to his owner if possible because he's taking up quite a lot of room and is living in a cupboard at the moment."
The value of the Dalek is not known but Ms Willey estimates that the replica could be worth hundreds of pounds.
"He's a little bit damaged here and there, but he's still got to be worth hundreds," she said.

White hat hackers get paid to find holes in their own employers’ online systems, and plug those holes before they become serious security risks. It’s a job that pays handsomely…mostly because few job candidates, even experienced IT professionals, have the skills to scamper over firewalls and infiltrate the deepest recesses of a battle-tested network. But […]

You may not love Microsoft Word, but you’ve definitely used it. Other than being one of the most ubiquitous programs on the planet, it’s been the go-to word processing system for more than a quarter-century because it’s as basic as it gets.
