So, Where Did You Want To Go Again?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 16, 2017 in Internet |

This is probably not where you wanted to end up, in the eternal loop of the Matrix. You typed something completely different into your browser, or set a bot to do the searching for you, and expected to find something else. At worst, you’d have thought, a 404 page. At best, well, perhaps you were […]

Myth Of The Fat Hacker

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 14, 2017 in Internet |
