Waiting for the man

The Irish Blog Awards are on tomorrow night. I will be wearing my new dress if the postman brings it today. If not, I will be giving my old dress one last outing. That’s how I operate – I buy new clothes, I wear them all the time until I get to go shopping again. Then my former new clothes become old clothes and are laid to rest. It means I don’t have to think much about what I wear, yet I usually look like I’ve made an effort. And because I work from home, people don’t tend to notice that I wear the same clothes most of the time. However, I did wear my old dress to the last blog-related do so I could get caught out this time. Come on postie, come on!!!

I will also be talking about blogging with John Williams of McAWilliams on RTE Radio 1’s This Week programme on Sunday afternoon.

  18. I have to laff at another answer about its not hackable because facebook it blocked in China.. . There are several ways to bypass this, use a VPN which most hackers would be doing so.. Use a third party remote computer outside China to hack facebook, I worked for a company in which a co-workers lap-top was lacked and used in a remote hacking attempt on NASA.. Lastly, its could be state sponsored in which the hackers have special codes so that the great firewall doesn’t affect them.. . Although, under legal rulings you can’t prove without direct edvicince that xx group did that, the targets of that hackings gives a clear idea of who maybe behind it. If the facebook targets are random members then it could be anyone, if its like targets a like a anti-animal rights group then the odds are its a pro-animal rights groups, if the odds are pro-free Tibet members or Chinese dissidents then the odds are its a pro-Chinese group.
