A little bit “miffed” …


More than a bit miffed really. (For those who don’t know the word click here) I do the National Lottery online. That is to say, I have an online account and I buy my tickets that way.

Yet another breach …


This time it’s Twitter. it would seem that there has been a ‘Glitch’ (their words) that showed un-encrypted passwords on their servers.

It’s been a while …


It’s been a few weeks since my last post. No particular reason except laziness really!
