    17 Years Old Today. The Kit that powers this site

    WordPress has been powering sites that I own or sites that I have built for 11 of the past 17 years. I have built WordPress since 2009. Since 2011 I have needed a very good reason to build a website in anything but WordPress. We are talking over 200 websites. At one point I owned 40 WordPress websites! I haven’t built a site in anything else since 2013.

    I remember once being in hospital and so bored that I updated 12 WordPress websites by clicking on each individual update!

    The code base of WordPress has changed monumentally since I first started using it and it has developed from blogging software into a fully fledged website operating system and content management system. This website has developed since 2011 and seen updates since WordPress 2.7. Ok it was heavily rebuilt earlier this year.

    This is quite a heavy site – over 10,000 individual items of content and I sometimes consider moving it to another CMS or platform but I never do. WordPress is perfect and I appreciate the regular updates and swift security patches.

    After a while I have even begun to like the new Gutenberg block editor! In short I am very happy with WordPress.

    In closing there is only one thing left to say. Thank You and Happy Birthday WordPress!

    AMAZON AWS S3 Failure

    So according to this article the Amazon AWS S3 platform is having some problems. Some of the largest websites in the world have been affected by an outage. Amazon is saying it is an increase in error rates as opposed to an outage. Some sites and services are missing data, some are offline and some are running slower than I can walk 🙁

    This is not a good thing for businesses who need to have control over their web services. Disaster recovery and business continuity seem to be non existent. This is a fail. When I was designing parts of networks and systems we would always factor in disaster recovery. AWS looks good but it can also rack up to be very very expensive indeed.

    What is even more worrying is that Amazon AWS S3 is seen as being too big to fail, therefore my business won’t have any problems because it is with Amazon. This episode shows that Amazon along with anything or anyone is not too big to fail. No one thing, person, business or infrastructure is not immune to failure. Simple.

    This is one of the biggest IT failures I have ever seen and I have seen more than a few in my time in the technology industry. Some small but I have also seen some spectacular failures.  IT outages and system failures happen every hour of every day of every week of every year. IT specialists are trained to handle and repair these or even prevent these outages from happening by carrying out preventative maintenance. These things happen and should be prevented where possible.

    Amazon will surely take quite a hit on this. I can imagine certain CTO’s are sitting at their desks now and reviewing their relationships with Amazon and other similar providers to ensure they don’t get hit by something like this either again if they have been hot this time or for that matter anytime in the future.

    One thing is for sure this story will not go away for a while and its impact will be felt in very varying degrees by so many including users who will be unhappy about being unable to access essential web sites and apps. Amazon clearly need to look at a redesign or upgrade.

    I would also like to assure Virtual Office users that they are unaffected by this as I do not use AWS preferring my trusty HP Servers and infrastructure.

    Recap: The Technology Special

    The P2 List Technology Special Edition features a large number of business opportunities that I have available in the Scientific, Technology,  Engineering and Manufacturing sectors. Please see below to get your free copy.

    Security is a wonderful thing! Please let me burgle your house!

    Adobe, a very large and successful computer software company had their systems hacked most recently. Nothing new in that companies get hacked every day. There are even occasions when they try and hack me. On this occasion information on over 150 million users was stolen and some of it posted online! According to the BBC however it seems individuals will not wake up and smell the coffee. According to this article so many of the passwords were so weak. Lets break this down. These were the top 20 passwords:

    Top 20 passwords

    • 123456
    • 123456789
    • password
    • adobe123
    • 12345678
    • qwerty

    I’m sorry this is like walking around town with “Mug Me” tattooed to your forehead and fifty pound notes hanging openly out of your wallet. You might as well leave the front door and all the windows of your house open and invite the burglars in! How would you feel if these hackers emptied your bank account? In this day and age the security of personal information is as important as personal security and home security. Using passwords such as the ones above is a silly silly thing to do and only puts you at further risk. Don’t say you haven’t been warned.The other thing here is that most people will reuse the same email address and password for different networks such as banking, Facebook, Twitter and much much more. For the avoidance of doubt as a seasoned IT Professional I recommend using passwords of between 10 and 18 characters that includes special characters such as !, *, &, – or #, capital letters and numbers. For the avoidance of further doubt Adobe have themselves to blame for this attack as well. It would seem that they haven’t been too security conscious either. I mentioned above that the hackers try and have a pop at me occasionally. What do they get away with? Nothing, Zilch, Nada, Zero. Why? Because I take my own advice and make sure the shop is secure! If you are using silly passwords please, please please; wake up and smell the coffee.
