Christmas Offends Muslims

Well the wonders of social media, here daily to help recirculate stuff that's been around since the dawn of time and make it seem like it's something brand new and exclusive.

Well, here's a prime example. I noticed a fair few people posting and "sharing" this newspaper headline, "Christmas Is Banned: It Offends Muslims" on Facebook earlier...

Christmas Is Banned: It Offends Muslims

I also had a flick through a few comments on it too (there were thousands, so couldn't have gone through every single one of them) and it's amazing that people are thinking this is a recent headline... [read more]

Facebook Leaks Email Addresses And Telephone Numbers

Facebook LeakIt seems in the early hours of the morning, Facebook missed a bug (even though they're "supposedly" there full-time monitoring them) which subsequently leaked your email address and telephone number to someone who you may not have granted access to seeing. Bit of poor performance there Facebook in my opinion. The one bit that gets me though in this "Important Message", is their quote "While many of us focus our full-time jobs on preventing or fixing issues before they affect anyone" ... now if this bug wasn't here last week, then why is it...

Xmas port scan attack from WAN

Since we've moved to our new address, we've been having nothing but problems with our internet service. We were told that we'd get the same speeds as we did at the old house as soon as we moved into the new house, well as you may have guessed, we didn't. We usually got speeds of 9-10Mbps at the old house and now we're at the new house, we're lucky to get 600Kbps! (Yes, 0.6Mbps!) Which sadly isn't enough to watch anything on YouTube, BBC iPlayer - let alone listen to the radio online either.

Thankfully, TalkTalk are... [read more]

O2 Outage Last Week

Last week it seemed the end of the world for most people who were on O2. The network ended up failing for them and wasn't restored for about 24 hours. This obviously sparked mass-outrage on social networking websites like Facebook and Twitter and I feel quite sorry for the internet staff that run the Facebook and Twitter accounts as they seemed to have been in the firing line from many angry customers.

I do agree with the customers being angry though - I mean, who wouldn't be? Especially if you're self-employed and rely on your phone... [read more]
