Scams: What’s In A (Registered) Name?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 6, 2016 in Internet |

I haven’t come across this scam too often, but it does the rounds now and then so it’s also worth mentioning. It consists of a mail, such as the one below, appearing to come from a private company concerned with registering domain names, company names, trademarks and similar and is always in China. Since everyone […]

Trade: Stating The Obvious

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 13, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Before I even start: I am not a political person, much of what happens in politics, regardless of which country you choose in the democratic world, will happen no matter which political party happens to be in power. If it make sense for the country, or their ideal of a country, they will try to […]

Something For The Censors

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 6, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I guess it all depends on how you wish to look at things. For the one something is aesthetically beautiful, for the other it is a sexual degradation. Some consider the written word to be solid and nothing but the truth as passed down from on high, while others consider it to be filled with […]

Spock: Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 11, 2014 in Internet |

Censorship is a strange thing, especially when it is political censorship. Take, as an example, the decision by the Chinese censor to remove all references to Vladimir Putin placing a warming blanket around the shoulders of Peng Liyuan, wife of the Chinese Premier Xi Jinping, to protect her from the rain. Clearly, for the Chinese, […]

They’re Here!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 20, 2013 in Internet |

One of the things that I do regularly, being security minded when it comes to what happens with this website, is check and see exactly what is going on where, and how successful that ‘what’ is. I’m sure many have heard that someone in China keeps on hacking into sites, taking them over, disrupting or […]

New World Order

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 13, 2013 in News & Opinion |

The problems created by the shutdown of all governmental financial transactions in the United States have a far-reaching effect which is not, as some American politicians may suppose, limited exclusively to the United States. In a world where the dollar appears to rule the roost, where many countries – large and small – have invested […]

Google Spammed Me?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 5, 2013 in Internet |

I still fail to understand the mentality behind spammers, as I am sure we all do. Fine, they’re trying to get back-links, trying to get their (often faked) product out onto the market, trying to make money. I think we can all agree on that. But why, if that is the case, would anyone write […]

Chinese Boiled Eggs

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 27, 2013 in Immoral Conversations |

During one of my periodic visits to friends yesterday I had the opportunity to watch that horrible contraption, the television. I can’t say that it has made me change my mind about getting one of these things, even though, under German law, I am required to pay for a license for one which I don’t […]

Out Sourcing Military Might.

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 2, 2012 in News & Opinion |

You can call it what you wish, but I think the Pentagon has merely decided to Out Source the navy by moving it more towards Asia and away from the US homeland. Humor and joking aside, there is something else here which we should consider. Protecting our markets, our financial stability, or future is one […]
