THINGS IN GENERAL

Just a ramble today, I woke up in a “funny” mood and I thought I would inflict it on you; no links the “news” is available in truck loads.

This is just a personal view on our green and pleasant land.

Our fair country is not doing well as you all know, the economy is broken, but eventually it will recover, it always seems to, in spite of the Government, and it doesn’t matter which Government.

The MPs are ripping us off, but they always have, the “overnight allowance” is sensible and long, long overdue. I consider that £60,000 per annum is a fair salary for what they do, and they don’t need second homes.

The Government has lost its way: they don’t have a clue what they are doing and meddling with the economy will only make the waters muddy, still the “expenses” fiasco has diverted our attention away from their piss poor performance record.

Our boys are finally starting to leave Iraq, but the problem is they will probably be sent to Afghanistan in a few months time, again to fight a war that is none of our business.

The G20 is due to start on Thursday, waste of time and money, we all know why the crash happened-lack of regulation in the financial sector, just fix it and stop talking about it. The “leaders” of the banks have come out of it Ok, they have billions of our money, and people are losing their homes: that needs to be addressed.

The NHS is killing people left and right, the management will walk away as usual, and the only people that will take the flak will be the medics, who bear part of the blame by not having the balls to do something about it at the time, whether it was for fear of their jobs or indifference. I don’t know but they should have done something. But I still have great respect for the majority of medics; the shame is that the Government doesn’t seem to have the same opinion.

The elderly are still being ignored, treated badly and insulted. What the Government needs to realise it that the “silver voters” may well be in the majority before too long.

One of the best bits of news is that the police sprayed CS gas on a couple of journalists in the Houses of Parliament; maybe they should make it a law, especially in the Commons.


A wind powered car has broken a speed record- 126.1 MPH, which is better than record powered car breaks wind.

The climate is buggered (not in the legal sense), but then again our weather has always been “interesting” but it is going to be a very good year for roses (trust me). And apparently the UK only spends just over £100 million on “genuinely new and additional measures to benefit the environment.”

Maybe we will all end up living in domes, with the weather being controlled inside them and the “Outside world” will be a scorched desert, which brings me to the water meters thing, yes they are probably a good idea to reduce consumption, but the thing that always gets up my nose is that water isn’t free, we pay for it, and it isn’t cheap, so let the water companies sort out all the leaks first and then look at “rationing”.

Top of the Pops will probably not return on a weekly basis, thank god for that.

There was a knock on my door the other day, I opened it to be greeted by a very attractive young lady with bright blue eyes, who then proceeded to try to sell me SKY TV, luckily at my age I can resist the fluttering eyelashes brigade, but she did get a bit upset when I turned down her offer, my comment of “why do I need ten thousand TV channels when I can only watch one at a time” was not received well, nice arse though! (Yes I know it’s sexist but appreciation of firm buttocks is not against the law).

Food prices are still high, especially in certain supermarkets”, the price of milk and cheese is about double the price it was a year ago, still every little bit helps-the profits anyway.

So there it is; my take on Blighty, we all seem to be in some kind of limbo at the moment, it is a bit like waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Or then again it may just be the “funny” mood I am in.

Security in all walks of life is essential for peace of mind. Security on the Internet is becoming more and more critical every day because of the increased amount and intelligence of ‘newborn’ hackers. Web hosting security is essential, especially if you have a website that sells products, and logs people’s details on your system. Remember, if your login details are compromised, then all of the login details that have been entered into your site are compromised. If this happens, all of their financial details will be compromised.

Hackers target [url=http://webhostingreview.info/]web hosts[/url] because there is huge money in the industry if the hackers compromise the right person’s details. Hundreds of login details can hold thousands of websites, thousands of websites have millions of people’s details on them, and millions of peoples details are worth billions of pounds, therefore, when there are billions of pounds involved, there will always be people that try and gain a highly illegal advantage.

Understanding the potential problems with security and viruses for your [url=http://webhostingreview.info/]web hosting[/url] system is essential to stopping any problems. This is an element that you need to make sure you read up on, as not reading up on this information can lead to your downfall.

One of the ways to stop leaving a trace of your actions on your system is to buy some secure third party software that safely gets rid of your information you no longer require. Many companies and individuals alike think that wiping your cookies and your hard drive may be enough to stop potential hackers. Hackers have advanced techniques that can recover your information even if you have wiped it from your system, therefore, having the best third party software is essential to block out even the most advanced of hackers.

Viruses are one of the few downfalls of the computer and the Internet industry. Trojans are one of the most circulated viruses and one of the most dangerous to your system. Not only are they the most dangerous but they are one of the hardest to eliminate. A Trojan installs on your system, and allows the hacker to have access to your computer; this can then allow them to install a keylogger which is dangerous to a web host. A keylogger allows the hacker to see every key that you are pressing; this means your web hosting login details will be seen the next time you login to your system. Remember, this is just one of the viruses that can compromise your web host, there are plenty of others, and they are not terribly pleasant either.

To make sure none of the above takes place, you need to protect your system. In life if you are in danger, then you do not just sit back and do nothing. Buying third party software to protect your web hosting package is a must, especially if you take card details as a form of payment. Also, making sure you use a web host that has some of the best security features online is another must for your web host company.
