OMG a BUG!!!

I love *all* animals, dog lover here if you may, but I really really hate bugs! Ever since I can remember things, I hated bugs. Not all types of bugs but certain ones … those that make a popping sound when squashed where all kinds of liquids come out of them. I can assume that most of you can relate to that, right? Why am I sharing this with you? Because there are other types…

Keep Your Backup Space Organized

When I was younger and living with my mom I did not have a lot of space to spare in my room. Every single spot was well thought out for best usage. Man, I remember how I had to hang two bicycles above my bed ; one for road biking and one for dirt … glorious days.   Each year I thought to myself that this is it, this year I am moving out! But…

A serious application level denial-of-service (DoS) vulnerability has been discovered in the WordPress CMS platform that potentially can take down most WordPress websites without the need of attacking with a massive amount of bandwidth, as usually required in DoS attacks.   Since WordPress itself did not provide (to date) a patch, the vulnerability (CVE-2018-6389) remains and has an affect on most versions of WordPress including WordPress version 4.9.2 which is its most stable and latest…

We (really do) Listen!

I’ve been using online services and tools for quite a long time now … I guess you’d call me a dinosaur 😉 Along the years I have came across some great tools which I had no problem paying a substantial amount of money for in order to enjoy them.
