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”) 和, 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.

有您以前意識到,www是多餘的? 如果是這樣的, 我說教的轉換,你可以沿著回跑,無論你是忙. 😉 Otherwise, 站在關注, 戰士!

開始rantish文本:

當我瀏覽網頁, 我更喜歡敲 “www.xkcd.com” 比 “xkcd.com”. 原因是,如果*每一個*網站必須有瓦特的, 什麼是瓦特的點? 更何況,他們是狗娘養的發音. 有 9 在那裡音節! 你可以 幾乎 減半的說 “三-W”. 我聽人說 “配音配音配音”. 嘖. 即使是 萬維網聯盟 更喜歡稱自己 “W3C”.

那麼到底是什麼 (是?) 在WWW點? 可能有更多的它, 然而它的要點似乎是,當 蒂姆·伯納斯 - 李 第一所創建的超文本文件檢索系統, 他把它稱為 “全球資訊網”. 我認為,萬維網成為一個標準,不是因為它是有道理的,或者因為它是一個好主意, 但因為它遠遠超出了炒作的健康方面,它實至名歸.

Web瀏覽器* *知道你處理網頁內容完全由一個事實,即有一個HTTP:// 在網址前面. 因此,我提交, 在WWW是多餘.

需要更有說服力?

搜索引擎看到www.dogma.swiftspirit.co.za和dogma.swiftspirit.co.za作為 2 獨立網站. 因為這兩個網站都有相同的內容, 搜索引擎可能會降低你的搜索排名. 地獄, 你會同台競技自己的排名. 例如傻: 而不是3, 你可能會第5 7日. 為此原因, 最好是兩種力量WWW或迫使任何WWW. 我是贊成後者的.

如果你瀏覽到 http://www.dogma.swiftspirit.co.za/ 你將被重定向到 http://dogma.swiftspirit.co.za/. 即使你去我的主要領域有在下載目錄 萬維網, 你會被重定向 適當. 更重要, 搜索引擎只能找到我的網站一個副本, 不 2. 而從長遠來看,, 我會穿少了我的W鍵li'l. 🙂

用幾個簡單的死亡可能是個例外, 沒有W公司生產的這個帖子中受傷.

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, 沃達康 & 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 或 #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 或 #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.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS PIECE OF INFORMATION TO
ALL YOUR FRIENDS HAVING A MOBILE.

The first things that got me thinking was the text denoting authority at the top of the page. 現在, 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? Okay, so its someSpecialLegal team that sounds government-type. They’re legitit turns 出 – 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. 還, why not issue a separate notification regarding each threat separately?

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. 還, 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. 無. Just a specific representative’s business card. What if the guy dies, finds a better job, 或 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” 或 “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

我的, 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. :-ð”. 當然, in reality, they’re just trying to take advantage of our gullible nature.

“#90 or #09” 和 “XALAN

There isn’t any way for you to verify this. 再次, 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. 🙂
