Anatomy of a Troll

Trolls come in a variety of different sizes and shapes. Some are the hit and run types and will create a different username and profile for each attack while others are in it for the long haul and stick to a single profile. Trolls have been studied for awhile and the more thats learned about them the more an understanding develops of what they have [...]

Mobile Blogging

So we're heading to Las Vegas. for the trip I'm going to leave my trusted MacBook Air behind and go with an iPad or my iPhone 5. Should be fun. I picked up a nice Kenneth Cole bag today too so expect a review of that in the coming days. Blogsy will be my app of choice along with Wordpress when I'm connected. For photo uploads I'm br [...]

Shark fin soup trade

This is truly disgusting. I found this article this morning on Grind.TV and it depicts a trade that is completely out of control and out of touch. The Grind article is about a blog post by Hong Kong photographer Alex Hofford and his feature post A Shark Fin Roof Top in Hong Kong. Hofford writes "The front line in the war against the shark fin trade [...]

Creating a MySQL Database for WordPress

Creating a MySQL database to use with your WordPress blog is actually much easier than it sounds. If you’ve gone the route of using your own hosting company, which I strongly recommend, you simply login to your CPanel (usually found at www.example.com/cpanel). Almost all web hosting companies offer MySQL database creation via CPanel and th [...]

Hack Update

Slowly but surely I'm returning things to normal. Ended up being listed as a compromised site by Google but that will work its way out soon. Looks like it originated in The Netherlands. I have an IP address from a malicious attempt to login today as an admin. I also installed some security plugins to keep things safe. Not all bad though. A new begi [...]

App Review – Blogsy

Blogsy is an iPad blogging app that I decided to try after some frustration with the Wordpress one. Nothing really wrong with the Wordpress app, it just doesn't offer much in terms of making life easy for mobile posting. The image sizing never seems to work the way i want it to and trying to post on the fly really needs to be simple. I'm hoping Blo [...]
