Welcome to my personal website. Here you will find the occasional blog postings expressing my opinion on matters as I see fit, some athiest content and data that I collect on intruders attempting to break in to this computer.
I started collecting the intrusion data as far back as 2009. At that time I was just curious about how many people were actually trying to break into computers. I did not think I had anything of interest on the computer that they would want but what I did have was an IP address. That is kind of like a phone number attached to your smartphone. And just like a smart phone, stealing someone else's lets you listen to all their calls, go through their voicemail and impersonate them when making calls to others.
Have they been successful? So far no.
Since I collect all this data I also make use of it by automatically generating Daily Intrusion Reports, visual Country Maps showing the attack origins, and various block lists for other people to use to ban these would-be cyber hackers.
So enjoy whatever you find here that piques your interest. I caution against attempting to abuse the site though as it will only lead to your IP address being banned.
This site is also a Jekyll static site, so don't even bother with all the script-kiddie Wordpress attacks, you are wasting your time.
What is up with the all the cyber attacks Vietnam?
It was a year ago that Reuters reported an increase in cyberattacks by groups in China targetting official and corporate targets in Vietnam. “Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said China opposed all forms of illegal internet activities or stealing of secrets and also opposed any accusations from any side against any country on the issue without cast-iron proof. Vietnamese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang said cyber attacks should be severely punished in accordance with the law and that it was important for countries to secure their networks. Vietnam denies allowing cyber espionage although it has also been accused by FireEye of carrying out attacks.” Strong words from government spokeswomen specially if your country has been the brunt of cyber espoionage. So why is it then that over the past few months attempted breakins to my site originating from Vietnam have skyrocketed? Tell me that, Ms Foreign Ministry spoeswoman Le Thi Thu Hang. Why is Vietnam attacking me?
I No Longer Get Robocalls
I no longer get robocalls. Although it might seem ludicrous to make such a statement, it is none-the-less true. Blissful silence is now mine to enjoy. No more scams pretending to be PG&E. No more timeshare sales. No more surveys. No more random hangups at all hours. Nothing. Nada. All gone. And good riddance to them all.
The End Is Nigh
Got your watches synchronized for the event of the millenium? Have you booked your evening flight so you too can watch the impending doom creep across the land from a magnificent sky-high vantage point? Or will you simply count down the clock playing with your new shiney iPhone that should arrive the day before all ends… forever…. The clock is ticking. Why not join the masses of crazies and join in the bliss that signifies all that you know and hold dear will be obliterated forever by the supposed father that loves every dearly…. Ridiculous, no?
Being big fans of food delivery services such as Blue Apron and Sun Basket we enjoy the variety and quality that these home cooked meals can bring to the dinner table. My wife, a brain injury survivor, specifically finds these packages helpful because she can easily follow the directions and create some spectacular meals that normally would be beyond her capabilities.
