I think all web surfer’s could benefit from reading this article. (And it includes a free “privacy pack”.)

‘Reset the Net’ promotes security at enterprise and individual levels

Why do we need to be thinking/doing such things? Because the Internet is fundamentally flawed – it was never designed/intended to be used as we now use it.  Yet we blindly go on, business as usual, because 1) it’s all we have, 2) we’re now addicted to it, and 3) it’s making a few (think “handful’) people big money.

Today’s Friday Fun Video

70th Anniversary:

Shortly after midnight the assault opened with the landing of more than 13,000 American, British and Canadian airborne troops …


.. followed by an amphibious landing of Allied infantry commencing at 6:30 AM…



.. wading ashore on five beaches, codenamed “Utah”, “Omaha” (American), “Gold” (British), “Juno” (Canadian), and “Sword” (British). Free French, Polish, and Commonwealth troops also landed. The place was Normandy, France.

The operation was the largest amphibious invasion in history, with over 160,000 troops landing on 6 June, 1944. Over 5,000 ships were involved.

It is my humble opinion that the best book to read if you want to learn about D-Day, and the liberation of France from Nazi occupation, is The Longest Day by Cornelius Ryan. (The movie isn’t bad either.. after all, John Wayne’s in it..)
