Selfies: The Best Arrangement

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 12, 2016 in Internet |

I was trying to find something to take my mind of the present problems in the United States, and avoid the constant post-mortem of this party, that slogan, those actions, which are coursing through the Internet at the moment – the blame passing and so on – in favor of something a touch more inspiring. […]

Vine: A Strange Glimmer Of Hope?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 28, 2016 in Internet |

It didn’t take long. I wrote and posted by last on the death of Vine with the idea that another company could split the video channel from Twitter and make it a separate, successful entity, and less than twenty minutes later a possibility looms. Not, perhaps, that which many would hope for, but a possibility; […]

Vine: Another One Bites The Dust

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 28, 2016 in Internet |

Perhaps it was just too good to last: Vine, the short video / film platform which changed the lives of many people throughout the world is condemned to the archives.

Secure Servers: The Sweet Irony

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 18, 2016 in Internet |

Probably everyone in the United States now knows that WikiLeaks – a theoretically impartial whistleblower website dedicated to leaking government and business documents and information – has been posting countless mails from and to Hillary Clinton for the last few weeks, the bulk of which has been incredibly boring and tells us nothing new, nothing […]

This may well become an Internet legend, or it could also be just a story someone made up along the way but it goes something like this: The German supermarket chain Lidl decided upon a new advertising campaign comparing prices of products that they sell, between their own brands and those of market leaders. They […]

This, Is A Traffic Surge

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 10, 2016 in Internet |

You might remember that I had a problem, a while back now, with someone trying to hack into my server, and with a major DOS attack. My traffic went up from about 50MB to 4GB over a very short period of time and threw a real spanner in the works. At the time we were […]

Update: Well, That Was Fun

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 7, 2016 in Internet |

Remind me never to try to do an update when most of my traffic is due here. Despite all the statistics various services offer, the bulk of my visitors live in the United States and they, for those of you in the know, tend to live in different time zones. My evening tends to be […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 28, 2016 in Internet |

Did you catch the comment by François on my last post? A simple but very relevant question: how do you know that I am me. He might just as well have asked how we know who anyone is, on the Internet. How can we trust anyone who we have never met, never seen, never heard […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 8, 2016 in Internet |

Several hundred people, myself included, will have noticed that there was nothing to see here for about thirteen hours yesterday and through until the early hours of this morning. The site was available on and off but, officially, completely off-line. Why? Well, from my point of view because of an extraordinary amount of traffic which […]
