Welcome to the wonderful world of jig-making. "Making" jigs has about the same amount of "making" like "coding" in programming. You have to invent or search for a jig which will make that task doable. I suggest clamping lightly two planks to sides of your plate, make a thick block with your desired hole, then screw that block onto planks so that your hole is centered between them. Now you have a guide for drill.
Is a bit better
You lose the "voice" in the process, but in some situations it might actually be fine
I'm sure some individual activists may have, but I certainly didn't see a large number on the losing side in 2016 saying the result should be overturned. Even if they were, they certainly weren't wound up enough to do so by violent means. Comparing the two situations is absurd.
If you're trying to avoid being suspected of having a tv, that sounds as smart as trying to rob a gun store with a fake weapon
But I don't think attacking American providers is a strong counter at all, the days when the BBC led the world in quality are long gone, HBO set the standard for modern drama which no British service has come close to matching; Netflix and Prime provide plenty of quality programmes too.
The BBC/C4 still compete on non-fiction, comedy and radio, but not drama.
I love seeing stuff like this. Emacs is the true bicycle for the mind.
Frankly, this sounds like typical Silicon Valley attitude applied totally inappropriately.
"Just get a minimum product out, we'll figure out how to make it work later, or pivot to another market."
That's fine if you're releasing the next todo list app. That's not fine if you're providing women rape kits that, for all intents and purposes a rape kit would be used for, are useless. This severely impacts people's lives at their absolute worst moments.
You might give them the benefit of the doubt if there was even a remotely feasible path for this to be useful without a major rework of the justice system in ways that would severely compromise it in several other aspects.
Given the seemingly insurmountable hurdles, it's hard to see this as anything but a way to exploit vulnerable or fearful women to their own detriment. Especially when they'd previously co-opted the MeToo movement for their branding while suggesting women stock up on these "prior to being assaulted".
With podcasts and streaming I often find the discussion starts and ends with "yes I listened to an interesting podcast about that...". Perhaps that will make someone else listen to it the next day, but the window of opportunity for discussion is gone.
Are these fees generally speaking a good thing? I'd say yes, because you get a non-add dependant news source. Is the implementation, especially in germany, perfect? Of course not. It still has a place, so.
EDIT: If you move, you declare you address change to the authorities anyway. Everything depending on your address, government-wise and some other stuff, is then done automatically. Not relevant here, but that includes ballots.
I think the reason why centralization is a danger to democracy, is because of lobbying. Lobbying is much easier in a centralized power structure. See how much lobbying goes on in and around the power centers of this world: DC, Brussels, London. Lobby is power for money, democracy is power for votes (at least it should be). Currently lobbies have more power in the decision process than voters (any political sciences professor will agree). So democracy is a hollow word, or worse: a facade, a lie.
Lobbies basically work in favour of the super rich. If we see the gap widening we see that they get what they pay for, and the for-sure-not-super-rich masses dont get what they vote for.
But you know who would pay more if they prescribe Lexapro? The manufacturer of Lexapro, and that's who he should have pitched this to. And they have the marketing muscle needed to make it scale.
That said, there's all sorts of conflict of interest/slippery slope issues going down that path, and I'm not sure they would buy this either, but they'd still have been his best bet.
They should pivot this package to crosswords as a service and ensure growth, maybe seek some funding while they are at it.
But public broadcasters also have expansive web/IP presence, and even use Facebook for public communication (ZDF), when in their news/opinion pieces they rant against social networks LOL.
Public broadcasters news today seem just to create a self-serving and self-referential media presence for politicians, in these times of Coronavirus more than ever. Tonight, they're going to push for even stronger measures including curfews (!) even though infections are going down; needless to say, without parliamentary participation. The whole thing is going out of hands with irrationality fast right now.
Reasonably effective stream watermarking happens every day and is done in the human vocal range with almost no listener impact.
In radio, Arbitron has a system working well within the lower audio range, even AM radio. AM is typically 5Khz bandwidth.
They use a spectral masking technique able to encode ID bits into streams that can be decoded with portable devices.

Frankly, this kind of thing would go unnoticed by pretty much all listeners.
From the PDF I linked:
[...]all watermarking technologies use the well-known perceptual principle of “masking,” which
was first reported in the early 20th century and is a core technical basis for mp3, AAC, and a host of data-rate reduction
In simple language, a loud burst of energy at one frequency will deafen the human auditory system to certain
other audio components at nearby frequencies for a period of time before, during, and after the loud signal.
Consider the following illustration: A tone burst at 1.1 kHz with an intensity of 0 dB will hide (make imperceptible) an
added signal at 1.11 kHz with a level of -30 dB for a period of about 10 ms before the burst and as much as 50 ms after the
burst. However, modern signal-processing techniques can still detect the existence of this added 1.11 kHz component even
though the ear cannot.
This is the basis of PPM and other similar watermarking technologies that use masking for
determining the frequencies and intensity of the data that can be added for the station-identifying watermark.
The PPM system constructs 10 spectral channels in the region from 1.0 kHz to 3.0 kHz. The original program audio
energy in each channel is evaluated for its ability to mask an added component. If that masking energy is insufficient,
nothing is added. Conversely, if the energy in a channel is large enough, a tone is injected, chosen from one of four
possible frequencies within the channel. For example, the channel centered at 1058 Hz might have one of the following
four frequencies injected: 1046, 1054, 1062, or 1070 Hz.
Each of the four frequencies represents 2 bits of information. If we assume that this process repeats at a 500 ms rate,
using all channels provides 40 bits per second or 2400 bits per minute of watermark code. Let’s further assume that a
radio station is credited for a listener if any code is correctly detected within a 3-minute interval. With the very large
number of encoded bits generated in 3 minutes (2400 x 3 = 7200 bits) and a station’s identification data needing perhaps
only 50 bits, there is massive excess capacity for redundancy, error correction, and for audio that does not have enough
high-frequency content for masking.
> The tyranny of the majority
Has that ever happened or is that just an argument to let politicians keep their power?
Punch to center the first hole, then drill pilot holes at 3mm, 6mm and 12mm, use duck tape on the drill bit to keep the depth right.
If you really need the holes to be dead straight use a handheld router those are a great thing to have anyway and pretty much all of them have 100mm of or so of travel.
If you're drilling into something very hard skip the 3mm.
