Here`s one for my blog readers to think about: Have you updated the date on your website?
Don`t worry your not alone, it`s still very early 2013 and most website owners have other things on their minds. I would certainly recommend though when you get the time to update the date / copyright notice on your websites. You know which part I mean, the little section in the footer of your webpages.
Why keep it updated?
Firstly it tells your website visitors that your website is actively maintained and it also tells the search engines that your looking after your website.
In today`s blog post I thought I would touch on the process of selling websites. I have sold a number of websites and domains over the years and I thought I would share some of my experiences and lessons I`ve learned in selling them. This has come about through a forum post I read today, the forum member wants to sell his website and is having little success.
Firstly why do you want to sell your website?
In my experiences the main reason I`ve sold websites is that I no longer have the time to actively maintain them anymore or I have moved on to other projects. Have you thought about why you want to sell your website? I have sold websites and regretted it afterwards, food for thought maybe.
Some of the companies that I have maintaining websites for have vans and cars which require vehicle graphics. I have been recommending Manchester based printing company to them. Simply because their great, prices are fantastic and the quality of the graphics are second too none.
They distinguish themselves from other sign, print and display companies by the quality and high impact appearance of their printing and design products, and the use of innovative production techniques, as well as competitive pricing. To add, they also provide a full in house sign design and project / sign management services.
Quoted from their website:
Our Printing Shop in Manchester services include:
Pop-up and Pull Banners, Giant Roller Banners, PVC and Vinyl Banners.
Heres a great guide that I found on how to check is someone is stealing your bandwidth from your home wifi connection and how to stop them. This is a must read if you suspect if your wifi bandwidth is slow, Someone could be piggybacking your wifi connection.
There are many reasons why you’d want to check if an unauthorized party is using your wireless network. It may be that you’re experiencing a slower than normal Internet connection or you simply don’t want anyone getting a free ride while you pay the bill. Of course, there are also security implications if this person can somehow access files on your network, and even legal implications if he uses your connection for piracy or other illicit activities.
Whatever the case it’s better to stay on the safe side. Many of you may have already taken some basic precautions when setting up your wireless network and know your way around troubleshooting these issues. This brief guide is aimed mostly at novice users in need a hand to find out if, indeed, their Wi-Fi is being stolen. Check the devices associated with your router
The first thing you need to do is login to your router’s administrative console by typing its IP address directly into the browser address bar — typically 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 depending on which router you have. If you don’t know your router’s default address simply go to the command prompt (Start > Run/Search for cmd) and enter ipconfig. The address you need should be next to Default Gateway under your Local Area Connection.
Alternatively, if you are on a Mac, you can find the default address by going to Network under System Preferences. It should be listed right next to “Router:” if you are using Ethernet, or by clicking on “Advanced…” and heading to the “TCP/IP” tab if you are using Wi-Fi. Next, point your browser to that address and enter your login details — if you haven’t changed the default settings it should be a combination of “admin” and “password” or blank fields. Here’s a default username and password list (PDF) you might find useful, but we recommend you change this afterwards.
Once inside your router’s administrative console look for a section related to connected devices or wireless status. In my old DIR-655 from D-Link it’s available under Status > Wireless but you’ll find it as “Attached Devices” in Netgear routers, under DHCP Clients Table on Linksys routers, “Device List” if you are using the Tomato firmware, and so on.
DHCP client list examples on D-Link and Linksys routers.
This should provide a table with the IP, MAC address and other details of every device currently connected to the router. Check that list against your gear to find any intruders. You can find out the MAC/IP address of your computers by going to the Command Prompt again and entering ‘ipconfig /all’. The MAC address will be shown as the physical address. I’ll let you figure it out for mobile devices like smartphones and media players since I can’t possibly list all options. Taking action
The best and simplest solution is to set up a strong password using WPA2 or WPA — WEP is very easy to crack so avoid that if possible. There are some other methods you can use to beef up security, like switching off the SSID broadcast (which prevents it from advertising the name of your network to nearby Wi-Fi devices) or setup a filter for allowed or blocked devices by MAC address. It won’t stop the most determined intruder but it will slow him down.
That should be more than enough for most users but if you need to actually track down who’s been breaking into your network it’s possible to pinpoint his physical location using a tool called MoocherHunter. You’ll need to burn a Live CD to boot your laptop with and walk around to track down unauthorized wireless clients. According to the program’s description, it detects traffic sent across the network and can find the source within 2 meters accuracy.
Needless to say, we’re not suggesting you take matters into your own hands, but it might come in handy if someone is getting you in trouble with authorities using your network for illegal purposes — or simply to have a cool story to tell.
I have been thinking about maybe it`s time to learn to drive, I dont really need a car but it would be nice to atleast to pass my driving test. I think I have found a driving instructor in Bolton that I would use. I suppose now I have to think about what days I could do my driving lessons as these days im quite a busy person.
Im hoping to start my driving lessons in October or November. Wish me luck!
