Men experience slightly more online harassment — but young women are hit with the most severe forms – StumbleUpon. How disappointing that people choose to be disrespectful. Perhaps it just takes time for people to learn kindness and empathy.
White-Hat Hackers Create A Service To Save Files Hacked By CryptoLocker Malware – StumbleUpon. I had a friend who got bitten by Cryptolocker but fortunately he used an online backup service so he is just stuck restoring his files. He is lucky. Many people don’t do online backup so they would have been stuck.
Meet the Online Tracking Device That is Virtually Impossible to Block – StumbleUpon. Having privacy online is like wack a mole. You protect yourself from cookies with AdBlock, and now you have to worry about fingerprinting. You should get permission from people to do something rather than expect the person to download a cookie to not even stop the flow of information but just have a companies promise.
Online Backup Comparison Chart (Updated July 2014). Nice matrix that shows the features. I have a friend who uses Carbonite and loves it. Great work Tim.

Even online, emotions can be contagious – tech – 26 June 2014 – New Scientist. No doubt that we are influenced by others. How often we don’t realize it. For this reason I try to choose positive things and people in my life. It makes life more enjoyable when you hold onto the positive things instead of dwelling on the things we can’t change.
I have talked about DCUO (DC Universe Online) before, but I wanted to see if anyone has had this experience. I choose not to fight during the 1vs1 PVP contests and that means that I almost always lose. Which is fine I don’t like violence. I have entered 1vs1 where there is no other player, and no player shows up. This has happened to me on a regular basis. Is this a glitch or are people leaving without me being aware of it? I check the status tab but there isn’t listed any other players in the instance.
Another unusual thing is that I logged into my account in the last week and received several marks of triumphs in my inventory. I didn’t win any of my goals when I had logged out the last time I had played. I knew they weren’t in my inventory because I was grinding to get marks of triumphs. Each mark was about 12,500! I had never had so many. I had played a level 6 instance a few days before, but I was rewarded in that instance so I didn’t think that was the reason. When I enabled all of those marks of triumphs I got about 70k in marks. I was able to buy two pieces of tier 5 gear. Is this a random reward or a glitch? I am a legendary member but I didn’t receive any Promethium boxes and even if I had, I would have only gotten two rewards not 4.
