Slowly Slowly may catch the monkey but what then
Of recent finding the time to post on this blog is like finding the time to go on holiday and relax with the family. Both of which seem never to truly go hand in hand.
Well Twitter has kicked in, in a bigger way than some people could have thought possible and even now it is filtering through to businesses who now feel that they need a profile on the most catching buzzword around.
Everyone is looking for the Twitter express and not many even understand where its going or what it can do.
I have looked at Twitter and have created accounts for the various portals and sites as well as for a few clients associated to our structure.
We have come to understand Twitter and how it can work for you however we are not too sure how long the whole buzz will last but realise that the one thing in its favour is its bare bones simplicity, unlike Facebook it is not cumbersome and does not take rocket science to get up and going.
Over the next couple of months I shall chat more and more about Twitter and its workings
While chatting to the wife today I discovered how insanely the internet has affected my everyday life and that I truly need a break away from the computer and typing on Skype and message boards and the sort.
The acronym lol has taken on a whole different dimension in my life and everyday existence, when typing lol online I seem to add a type of giggle hiss, (heeeeeeeee heeeeee type hiss) to go with the typing of lol, this is to voice the laughter associated with what has been written.
However this week I have noticed it has filtered through to my normal chat. While on Skype with a friend in the UK I noted that when I didn’t type lol to what they had verbally said my lol was replaced by the ‘giggle hiss’ … when I noted this I knew that time away from the computer was needed, however when in the car travelling to town today with the wife I did the giggle hiss in response to something she had said, I knew I had lost the plot. The giggle hiss is hardly audible, well due to the fact that normally when typing in response to something the lol cannot be heard.
Once the wife heard the giggle hiss she burst out laughing, it would have been a total ROFL had it not been for the fact that she was driving at the moment of my unmistakable lol
So there it is, the internet has had its affect and I am certifiable
In the article – Web 2.0 Phishing Leading To Multi-Vector Attacks
It is discussed how fraudsters are utilising Web 2.0 to deliver multi-vector attacks and how unaware users are being duped into downloading viruses et al from sites that have been phished.
What amazes me is the amount of time and money Google has put into tracking users to see what paper they use on their derriere when attending a sit in but cannot put an end to the network of scammers out there.
In the very same way as to when I ask to have the word dating blocked from my Adsense account they find this ‘impossible’ to do, so users have to suffer the indignation of image ads appearing on their site for She Male dating which appears on a site for Granny’s Knitting.
Users can help themselves by being more cautious and developing a pattern to be more security aware and to begin utilising sites that have a higher quality about them and have established a trust with their users.
I still wonder how the 419 scammers are able to dupe users out there and can only put it down to the same attitude as people and the Government they elect or maybe don’t elect
The intent of BobdeBilder.net is to provide a background to each category section and then to go into further details relating to each topic.
So now we have Forums and with it forum software
The main forum software I use is vBulletin and for very good reason, it has proven to be a remarkable platform to attach hacks onto and the usergroup handling of users makes the Admin control all that much easier.
I shall be writing a series of blogs about Forum development and maitenance over a period of time
Well here we are, finally the development and launch of BobdeBilder.net which will discuss the world of Internet Development.
After a number of years of being involved with web design and internet development as well as the need to make a living off what is done on the internet, I have been able to gain a fair amount of knowledge and experience regarding the web and its workings.
A number of persons who are in some way involved with web design or who are trying to make a living off the internet or have their business related to the www have mentioned on occasions that thye would be interested in reading and learning more via me discussing this experience.
And so, BobdeBilder was born. A variation of Can you Fix It!.
