Zoom goes boom, Teams tears at seams: Technology stumbles at the first hurdle for this homeworking malarkey


Working from home

Where I work we have a work at home policy that allows all staff to work from home 1 day a week, we use Google meet and slack for our Comms. Of all the meeting systems I have been subjected too, Google is by far the most reliable and quickest to get running.

What if everyone just said 'Nah' to tracking?


activating tin-foil hat

I have found no-script and Ghostery to be very good for blocking 99.99% of tracking, I have no-script setup to block javascript, objects and media by default.

When at home I also use pi-hole.

that works so well the EFF fingerprinting site doesn't even run - https://panopticlick.eff.org/tracker-nojs

No, Apple. A 4G Watch is a really bad idea


My Pebble

So I have read all the comments and seen little on the pebble, it's not a very pretty watch. But does the main job of being a watch very well!

It has a colour e-ink display, so I can see the time without having to turn on any light. That also means it runs for about 4 may 5 days on a charge.

The smart stuff is what I wanted, I like being able to read notification without having to get my phone out. Or shaking my wrist or anything. I can then dismiss notifications on both watch and phone or just the watch!

So if Apple wants to make a better watch, they should look at an e-ink display! That what I want in my pebble replacement!

Norton blocks Facebook as 'phishing site'


Yes Facebook is a fraudulent web page

Really, who on this earth has 600 friends?

I think Symantec should have left the update in place, yes before you say it. I'm not on facebook or have 600 friends.

happy power networking

So I have been using power networking for about 3 years, I started to use it to get broadband to a second floor with out the cabling mess.

It seems that power networking is not getting the development that I think it should, as it is a great way to get networking to parts not covered by WiFi or having to lay miles of cable. But it is good to see that this are moving :)
