Wallpaper of the Week: Nightfall at Lake Aurora

Posted: 28 May 2016 03:06 AM PDT



This weeks wallpaper shows off the blues, greens and purples of a night sky Aurora shining softly over a lake flanked by mountains. The mountains are steep on the left side, while the right side is shallower, has some tree cover and tapers off as it nears the water at the far end.While I'm not usually a fan of composite images, this composition of a photo of the Aurora in Iceland and a photo of Lake Bannalp in Switzerland appears flawless. Icons are highly visible on this dark background.  Read More

Are Your Hacked Details Circulating On The Internet?

Posted: 24 May 2016 12:51 AM PDT



There are hundreds of millions of hacked account details in circulation on the internet. Partly as the result of high-profile attacks such as the ones against Sony Pictures and Ashley Madison. But these are just the tip of a large iceberg, and the list of stolen credentials is growing by the day.

What about yours? Has anyone stolen a password that corresponds to your email address? Is there a way to check?

Thankfully, there is. A web site called Breach Alarm automatically scans the web for hacked passwords and the email addresses that go with them. So you can get some instant peace of mind just by going to the site and enter your email address. The system will scan its databases and, if any record of your details is found, you'll be alerted so that you can change your password.  Read More
