Blog

Category: Security | c: | m:

Y'know things that are all the rage? Blogs. Everyone has one; or at least had one before Facebook, Twitter and Google+ diluted the realtime pool.

Since I'm nu-old skool — and watching endless streams of people waste their lives telling each other about their shockingly tedious days erodes my will to live — I figured why not make a blog? The main difference here compared with other people's blogs is that instead of being limited to one topic, you get a little slice of everything all mashed up. Who says I'm late to the social party?

    CAPTCHA allegedly stands for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart”. What it actually stands for is “Chuffing Awful Process That Completely Humiliates Anyone”.

    Given the media furore these days, you’d think that aside from porn there was nothing but phishing, scams, viruses, trojans, worms and malware on the Interweb. Actually, there’s something far worse than these amateurish exploits.

  • Trial of convenience

    It’s 2010 and the world looks set to be party to a Nazi-style People’s Court show trial of Julian Assange from WikiLeaks. Have things really changed in seventy years?
