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 […]

404s And The Bad Guys

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 11, 2016 in Internet |

So, here I am, sitting in front of the computer again, going through the logs to see who has been where and try to make some sense of it all. It’s something that I do regularly, not just to see what other people are looking at, but also to see what some people are trying […]

WordPress: Is The Software Becoming Bloated?

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

I was looking through some of the software which powers WordPress this morning, not because I necessarily want to change anything, but more because I want to understand what everything is and how it all works. It is fine having something which works and, in the case of WordPress, works well, but also good to […]

Akismet: That File Is Just Too Big

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 3, 2016 in Internet |

Did I mention that I have been having problems connecting to the Internet and accessing my site since installing Windows 10? Well, yes, I did and more than once. As an update: I can’t say things have improved, although I have managed to access today – as you can see! – and write something. At […]

Internet Security: There’s A Reason For Protection

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 13, 2015 in Internet |

This evening I opened up my mail service and discovered that I had eight hundred and sixty-three mails waiting. Now, this may be quite normal for some people, who have a far greater degree of popularity – or are truly hated – but rather out of the ordinary for me. I usually manage to get […]

I Blog, Therefore I Am

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 28, 2015 in Internet |

The art of blogging, it is fair to say, has come of age. Although more younger people are just beginning to write their thoughts and lives for the Internet public to see, there are millions of older bloggers who have managed to overcome the first three months of cyberlife and continue to write. They have […]

Hacking WordPress

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 15, 2015 in Internet |

One of the big discussion themes at the moment – an ongoing theme, to be honest – is hacking and, in particular, the many attempts to hack into WordPress sites. It has been mentioned often, along with a whole series of resolutions to make a site safer, but still seems to be a theme simply […]

Testing Security

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 18, 2015 in Internet |

Security on the Internet, as we all should know, is of the utmost importance. No one wants to lose all their hard work, their posts, images, their public face to someone else. So I am more than pleased to see that someone from Pervouralsk in the Russian Federation (IP under the host has […]

WordPress Security: Nice Try Spammer

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

Whilst the number of spam comments has drastically dropped thanks to my WordPress settings and Akismet, there are still one or two which come through and hit the approval queue – in the spam folder – just in case. This is a good thing, even if almost everything that appears there does simply get deleted. […]

Are Blog Comments Worthwhile?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 23, 2014 in Internet |

As the owner of a weblog I take some interest in ensuring that what I write, what I publish, is not just of interest to me, but also to the many hundreds of people who visit here each and every day. If I didn’t this weblog would disappear very quickly: vanish into the ranks of […]
