TPP's demise....damn the maths of economic thinking you intellectual

Reading this article makes me wonder....did the romans notice the burn, "on the night of", or when it was all over and the light of day bought hard facts

BTW you should really be following Marina Whitman on Twitter as genius truly runs in her family (you mean you dont know who her father is? should).

CCleaner was hacked....

Ugh CCleaner user here....makes you realise every app you download (to pc's or phones) increases your attack vector.

Ridiculous that the "release notes" for 5.34.6207 make no mention of the hack and only say "minor gui improvements" -

Happy Friday everyone

Looks like its going to be an awesome weekend.

Brushfire fairytales
Itsy bitsy diamond wells
Big fat hurricanes
Yellow bellied given names
Well shortcuts can slow you down
And in the end we're bound
To rebound off of we
Well dust off your thinking caps
Solar powered plastic plants
Pretty pictures of things we ate
We are only what we hate
But in the long run we have found
Silent films are full of sound
Inaudibly free
Slow down everyone
You're moving too fast
Frames can't catch you when
You're moving like that
Inaudible melodies
Serve narrational strategies
Unobtrusive tones
Help to notice nothing but the zone
Of visual relevancy
Frame-lines tell me what to see
Chopping like an axe
Or maybe Eisenstein should just relax
Slow down everyone
You're moving too fast
Frames can't catch you when
You're moving like that

Something for us to consider on this day.......

It still perplexes me that Americans still have never stopped to ask "why did 9/11 happen in the first place" even after this many years.

Google Domains Dynamic DNS configuration

I don't know why this answer was so hard to find.... (or why its not explained on the google support page)


For Google Domains supports Dynamic DNS to work, I usually need the following info:
  • Update URL
  • Hostname
  • Username
  • Password
Of the four variables above, I know three. From Google, I can get Username and Password. I also know my server's hostname. However, I do not know the Update URL. In other words, I do not know to what the UPDATE URL is to make google dynamic dns domains work.....

The answer which was posted above and allowed me to get google dynamic dyndns2 system working with my Zywall 110 is

DYNDNS Server :
URL                     :  /nic/update?hostname=www.domainame.url

Ugh.....took forever to find as not answered in any of the Zyxel support pages. (Hey zyxel how about you pick up your game and add this to your support pages like you have for Noip etc).
