Here is a painting I did of a woman with a full back Tattoo

Here is one of my favourite knitting projects, there is nothing like a hand-made baby shawl.

matrixThe DDoS attacks come from the same malware responsible for last month's disruptions in the US.

The malware behind last month's massive internet disruption in the U.S. is targeting Liberia with financially devastating results.

This week, a botnet powered by the Mirai malware has been launching distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on IP addresses in the African country, according to security researchers.  

These attacks are the same kind that briefly disrupted internet access across the U.S. almost two weeks ago. They work by flooding internet connections with too much traffic, effectively forcing the services offline.

screenshot 2016 11 02 16 02 081Microsoft introduced Microsoft Teams today to much fanfare and hoopla — as only Microsoft can seem to do these days. But when you take a close look at today’s announcement, what have you really got here — a 10-year-old idea on how to communicate and collaborate in the enterprise with a distinctly Microsoft twist.

As I wrote previously about Slack and more recently Workplace by Facebook, Microsoft Teams is nothing new. About 10 years ago, a new kind of enterprise software emerged. Dubbed Enterprise 2.0, it was supposed to transform the way we work and “kill email” by giving us a space to collaborate and share work. It didn’t succeed — or at least wasn’t as transformative as once believed, and many of the early companies were absorbed (including Microsoft spending $1.2 billion to buy Yammer).

woman head in cloudIt's easy to disconnect when you're on holiday, but how can we manage our technology in regular life — during a normal working week — so we're not slaves to our phones?

There's nothing like a few weeks with no mobile signal to make you realise how much time you're losing to your phone.

When I got back from holidays last month, I got totally slammed with digital overload. I constantly checked my phone for messages and emails, and replied faster than a first responder emergency team.

It sucked. I wanted my empty time back. All that gazing at the scenery and reading of actual books. That ability to just sit and let my mind wander. The feeling of superiority to all the screen junkies on the train.

BurnhamThe former Cabinet minister's decision is being seen by some as part of a brain drain of Labour MPs under Jeremy Corbyn.

Andy Burnham has claimed Westminster has failed the north of England as he launched his campaign to become a powerful mayor of Greater Manchester.

Declaring he will fight to end the North-South divide, he is demanding better road and rail communications for the North and pledging to integrate health and social care.

Mr Burnham unveiled his personal manifesto for the soon-to-be created job, to be elected in May 2017, in a speech to Labour activists and supporters in Salford.

His decision to stand, revealed by Sky News as polls closed on election night on 5 May, is part of a potential brain drain of senior Labour MPs and will prompt claims that they see little future under Jeremy Corbyn at Westminster.
