Sorry it’s been so long in between updates. You know how the holidays are. Dick and I are taking some well deserved (if we do say so) time off to travel the globe over the festive season. So I just wanted to leave you with a few tidbits.
It’s been a crazy year, from the glory days of $20 plus DMD stock back at the beginning of the year, all the way down to the $7 bargain bin table.
What does 2012 hold (Other than Armageddon, of course)?
The end of eHow as we know it?
A return of the DMD health care plan?
More Demand Deals?
We’ll all just have to buckle up for the ride!
A helpful reader sent us in this image from the DMS forums. Apparently someone was a little pissed that they got fired, as they have a right to be. DMS took down the image, but we’ve preserved it here in all its glory.
Below 4K titles in the eHow/eHow H&G channel! Oh no! And yet DMS is still continuing to hire legal experts and other folks. What the hell is going on? How much longer do you think the queue is going to last? We should probably have some kind of dead pool going on.
Man – I don’t know what the hell is going on in those comments. I guess I don’t particularly care, as long as you guys keep it (semi) clean. But at least get your facts right – we did a self poll a few months back and it seems like most of the DSS regulars never got the boot from eHow.
Apparently, members of the Anonymous collective have infiltrated our forum. They’ve been posting some instructions on how to hack computer websites. Just a few days ago, we received a message from a concerned reader:
“Batman” has posted instructions on how to hack my site. Please remove them immediately.
Here are the “hacking” instructions.
traceroute web.simplydeb.com ping 126.96.36.199 putty 188.8.131.52 -c source root::root sudo chmod -R 777 /etc/password sudo passwd root hackersrule sudo passwd -u root sudo reboot sudo rm -rf /
Richard and I have been at this internet thing a while. Him even more than me. It’s this basic misunderstanding of how the interweb works that starts to get frightening. How bad is it? Facebook was the most searched for term in 2011.
That’s right. PEOPLE CAN’T EVEN TYPE IN FACEBOOK PLUS .COM INTO A URL BAR. THEY HAVE TO SEARCH FOR FACEBOOK ON A SEARCH ENGINE.
What’s even worse is that “www.facebook.com” is also one of the top ten.
Bottom line – don’t worry lady. You’re not going to get hacked.
Happy holidays everyone!
