升级到WordPress 3 才姗姗来迟 (因为很多条款草案). 出奇, 看起来没有什么不同,因为升级已完成, 虽然我也不会感到惊讶,如果我错过了一个重要的插件破损.

我会花一天时间在本周末仅以抛光网站,并整理了一些文章. 你有什么期待. 🙂

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.

Have you previously realised that www is redundant? If so, I’m preaching to the converted and you can run along back to whatever you were busy with. 😉 Otherwise, stand to attention, soldier!

begin rantish text:

When I’m browsing the web, I’d much less prefer to typewww.xkcd.comthanxkcd.com”. Reason being that if *every* site has to have w’s, what’s the point of the w’s? Not to mention that they’re a bitch to pronounce. There’s 9 syllables in there! You could almost halve that by sayingtriple-w”. I’ve heard people saydub dub dub”. 啧. Even the World Wide Web Consortium prefers to call themselvesW3C”.

So what exactly is (was?) the point of the www? There might be more to it, however the gist of it appears to be that when Tim Berners-Lee first created the hypertext document retrieval system, he called itWorld Wide Web”. I believe that www became a standard not because it made sense or because it was a good idea, but because it was hyped far beyond the healthy respect it deserved.

Your web browser *knows* you’re dealing with web content solely by the fact that there’s an http:// in front of the url. Therefore I submit, the www is redundant.

Need more convincing?

Search engines see www.dogma.swiftspirit.co.za and dogma.swiftspirit.co.za as 2 separate web sites. Because both sites have identical content, search engines might lower your Search Rankings. Hell, you’d be competing against yourself for rankings. Silly example: instead of 3rd, you might be 5th 7th. 为此原因, it is better to either force www or to force no www. I’m in favour of the latter.

If you browse to http://www.dogma.swiftspirit.co.za/ you will be redirected to http://dogma.swiftspirit.co.za/. Even if you go to the downloads directory of my main domain with a www, you’ll be redirected appropriately. Importantly, search engines will only find one copy of my web site, 不 2. And in the long run, I’ll be wearing out my w key a li’l less. 🙂

With the possible exception of a few quick deaths, no w’s were hurt during the production of this post.

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公司 & 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
访问您的“SIM卡’ 卡并拨打电话公司的费用.
这个消息转发给尽可能多的朋友,你可以, 停止它.
所有移动用户的注意,如果你接到一个电话和手机
显示器 (XALAN) 在屏幕上不接听电话, 结束通话立即,
如果接听电话, 你的手机会被病毒感染。.
该病毒会从手机中删除,你的SIM卡都全部IMEI和IMSI信息
卡, 这将让你的手机无法与电话网络连接. 您
将要新买的手机. 该信息已被证实双方摩托罗拉
和诺基亚.
请转发信息这一块
你所有的朋友具有移动.

这让我想到的第一件事情是在页面的顶部表示权威文本. 现在, 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? 好, 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.

演讲和语言

实际上有 2 这里通知关于单独的威胁,但它是不是很明显没有充分阅读文本. 这是因为分段的能力和语法都很差. 政府机构通常不发出不良的措辞或paragraphed文档. 还, 为什么不单独发布关于各种威胁的单独通知?

酸橙 绿色??? 的Bleh

有没有链接到更多资源

这种类型的任何警告无疑将提供进一步的信息或宣传的网上存在 机构. 还, 也许他们会喜欢你给有关情况反馈或者他们希望我们进一步报告可疑活动. 但不是. 无. 只是具体代表的名片. 如果这个家伙死, 找到一个更好的工作, 或 树叶 国内?

“有一个诈骗公司 … “

这意味着,他们没有任何线索是谁. 这是一个广泛的和被动的声明. 问每当有人说 “他们” 或 “人谁”. 这是谁 “诈骗公司”? 哪里 “那里”? 为什么没有这条裂缝政府法律团队 (谁有权使用锁子甲传播警告) 让我们知道通过其超级强大的连锁网络邮件?

“这个消息转发给尽可能多的朋友,你可以”

我的, 天啊. 这条线可能已在每一个连锁信 / 社会工程病毒 (我特别的定义) 由于切片面包.

“该信息已经被摩托罗拉和诺基亚证实。”

他们试图阻止你想为自己和尝试独立核实他们的要求. 他们说 “你是愚蠢的检查. 我们已经检查了你. :-ð”. 当然, 事实上, 他们只是想利用我们轻信自然的优势.

“#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. 🙂
