The upgrade to WordPress 3 was long overdue (as are many draft articles). Surprisingly, nothing looks different since the upgrade has been completed, though I also would not be surprised if I’ve missed an important plugin breakage.

I’ll be spending a day this weekend solely on polishing the site and finishing up some articles. You have something to look forward to. 🙂

I’m looking at the South African banking system (partly a result of watching the Zeitgeistdocumentary”) a, after finding my bank implicated most with regards to the SA-Banking Competition Commission wikileaks scandal, I’m putting serious consideration into switching banks.

What ethical banks are out there right now? I’ve even looked into Sharia (Islamic) banking because of their strict ethics laws but even there I’m looking at even more unknowns. I’m not Islamic and I have nothing against funding pork-related activities.

On that note, do you know if your bank has a code of ethics? If they’re public, where can we see these ethics codes?

Tell me about service levels I haven’t heard of before and which bank you believe deserves to handle my money.

Už jste předtím si uvědomil, že www je nadbytečný? Pokud tomu tak je, Kážu na převedený a můžete spustit po zpátky na cokoliv jste měli plné ruce práce s. 😉 Otherwise, stojan na pozoru, voják!

začít rantish textu:

Když jsem procházení webu, Já bych mnohem méně raději psát “” než “”. Důvodem je, že v případě, * každý * místo má mít w let, jaký to má smysl w let? Nemluvě o tom, že jsou fenku vyslovit. Je tu 9 slabiky v tu! Dalo by se téměř polovinu, že tím, že říká “triple-in”. Slyšel jsem, že lidé říkají “dub dub dub”. Bleh. I World Wide Web Consortium raději nazývají “W3C”.

Takže co přesně je (byl?) bod www? Tam by mohlo být víc,, avšak podstata toho se zdá být, že když Tim Berners-Lee nejprve vytvořil hypertextový dokument systém vyhledávání, nazval ji “World Wide Web”. Domnívám se, že www stal standard ne proto, že to dávalo smysl, nebo proto, že je to dobrý nápad, ale proto, že to byl medializovaný daleko za zdravý respekt, že si zaslouží.

Váš webový prohlížeč * ví * máte co do činění s webovým obsahem pouze z toho důvodu, že tam je http:// před url. Proto jsem se předložit, www je nadbytečná.

Potřebujete přesvědčivější?

Vyhledávače viz a jako 2 samostatné webové stránky. Vzhledem k tomu, jak stránky mají identický obsah, vyhledávače by mohl snížit svůj vyhledávač Ranking. Peklo, byste být soutěžit proti sobě na žebříčku. Silly příklad: 3. místo, můžete být 5th a 7th. Z tohoto důvodu, je lepší buď síly www nebo vynutit žádnou www. Já jsem ve prospěch druhé.

Přejdete-li na budete přesměrováni na Dokonce i když jdete na stažení adresáře můj hlavní domény s www, budete přesměrováni vhodně. Důležité, vyhledávače naleznou pouze jednu kopii mých webových stránkách, ne 2. A v dlouhodobém horizontu, Budu mít na sobě na můj w klíče o Li'l méně. 🙂

Why is it that we’re so gullible?

I even considered for a whole second that my colleague had cross-checked the following SPAM before posting it on our IRL noticeboard. Please note that the following text originally had really bad-for-your-eyes fonts and colours. 😉

Urgent Warning from
Cell C, Vodacom & MTN!

[business card of aLegal Representativeof the Special Investigating Unit]

Dear All,
If you receive a phone call on your mobile from any person, saying that, he or she is
a company engineer, or saying that they’re checking your mobile line, and you have
to press # 90 nebo #09 or any other number.
End this call immediately without pressing any numbers.
There is a fraud company using a device that once you press #90 nebo #09 they can
access your ‘SIMcard and make calls at your expense.
Forward this message to as many friends as you can, to stop it.
All mobile users pay attention if you receive a phone call and your mobile phone
displays (XALAN) on the screen don’t answer the call, END THE CALL IMMEDIATELY,
if you answer the call, your phone will be infected by a virus..
This virus will erase all IMEI and IMSI information from both your phone and your SIM
card, which will make your phone unable to connect with the telephone network. You
will have to buy a new phone. This information has been confirmed by both Motorola
and Nokia.

The first things that got me thinking was the text denoting authority at the top of the page. Nyní, bear in mind this is on a noticeboardnot my inbox where my anti-spam senses are at their peak.

Who could possibly have the authority to say they’re sending out a notification on behalf of each of South Africa’s tri-opoly of GSM providers? Dobře, so its someSpecialLegal team that sounds government-type. They’re legitit turns ven – but they probably don’t have enough time to take my call asking if this is all true. Absolutely everything on the Internet must be true, especially anything I say. 😛

So anyway, now that we’re over the silliness, let’s break this hoax down:

Official Documentation

Bar a business card, which is hardly standard in any industry, there is no official contact information. I’d expect at least a letterhead or a misguided trailing disclaimer.

Presentation and Language

There are actually 2 notices here regarding separate threats however it isn’t obvious without reading the text in full. This is because the paragraphing and grammar are very poor. Government institutions don’t normally issue poorly-worded or paragraphed documentation. Také, why not issue a separate notification regarding each threat separately?

A Lime Green??? bleh

There are no links to further resources

Any warning of this sort would undoubtedly offer further information or advertise the online presence of the institution. Také, perhaps they’d like for you to give feedback on the situation or maybe they’d like us to report on further suspicious activity. But no. Nic. Just a specific representative’s business card. What if the guy dies, finds a better job, nebo leaves the country?

There is a fraud company … “

This means that they haven’t any clue who it is. This is a broad and passive statement. Question whenever someone saysthey” nebo “people who”. Who is thisfraud company”? Where isthere”? And why doesn’t this crack government legal team (who have to use chain mail to spread warnings) let us know through their uber-powerful chain mail network?

Forward this message to as many friends as you can

Můj, oh my. This line has probably been in every chain letter / social engineering virus (my special definition) since sliced bread.

This information has been confirmed by both Motorola and Nokia.

They’re trying to prevent you from thinking for yourself and try to verify their claims independently. They’re sayingYou’re stupid to check. We already checked for you. :-D”. Samozřejmě, in reality, they’re just trying to take advantage of our gullible nature.

“#90 or #09” a “XALAN

There isn’t any way for you to verify this. Znovu, question everything. Google’s first page of results is riddled with the wordsCell phone warning hoax”. duh.

If you get a message like the above from your friends, reply and tell them to stop sending spamand maybe give them a link to this page so they know why. 🙂
