    Patch Tuesday Updates (Windows)

    April & May 2018 Patch Tuesdays both pushed out over 30 important security patches out. June 2018 patches include only 11 critical updates, but those 11 are just as important and should be updated immediately. https://thehackernews.com/2018/06/microsoft-june-security-patch.html
  3. For those of you who have never noticed, the second Tuesday of the month is so called "Patch Tuesday" where Microsoft pushes out it's patches and updates. I will be posting notifications here as a reminder when there are important ones released. Remember that one of the base ways to protect yourself from malware and hackers is to keep all your software and Operating System (OS) up to date.

    Facebook bug changed 14 million users’ default privacy settings to public https://thehackernews.com/2018/06/facebook-privacy-setting.html According to Facebook chief privacy officer Erin Egan, the bug was live for a period of 4 days between May 18 and May 22, which was caused while the company was testing a new feature.Egan said the Facebook team fixed the bug within 4 days on May 22 and changed the default audience setting back to what it was previously set by the affected users. So, the posts you shared with your friends after May 22 would not be affected.

  7. Hi Brian, good to have you. I did delete your link as we do not allow them for new members until we can be reasonably sure they did not join just to spam us. Ensure your link is in your profile and anyone with time to have a look can go there to get it. Once you have posted more questions and subjects, we will allow active links.

    If it is Drag n' Drop, do it yourself. I certainly would not pay someone calling themselves a web developer for that. Those sites exists to allow you to do it yourself without a professional involved. Those of us who actually went to school to learn web design and what goes into it sort of cringe at the idea. You have no idea about the code background either, is it accessible for those with disabilities? Autistic, poor vision/blind, dyslexic? Will it be secure or leave you open to legal action under the new EU GDPR regulations? Off the top, to me it sounds like a lot of money for something you can do and who is to say this person even knows what they are really doing? Do they know CSS and HTML5 enough to modify it? Fix it when it gets broken? I feel someone who does not know how to code a site by hand has no business using drag n' drop. If you can do it by hand and do it that way to speed it up and you trust the software to do almost a good a job as you would by hand... then it is forgivable. Does that price include hosting? That makes a difference as well.

    The Issue of Net Neutrality

    Good news on the Net Neutrality Issue, the Senate has voted to repeal Pi's decision. But it is not over yet, although the Senate voted to repeal it, the House of Representatives has not yet and the timer to do so is ticking down. For those of you who really care, pop off another letter or phone call to your representative and let them know a vote must take place and what you expect that vote to be, they are supposed to represent us and not big business. As for the Senate... the vote was 52 to 47, we won the vote, but only be 5 votes which I find to be a sorry margin indeed. But hey, horse shoes and hand grenades...

    How To Use Boxes Instead Of Tables

    Just as a general rule to consider, Tables are only to be used for housing data, basically spreadsheets etc. Back in the middle ages of the 80s and 90s there was not a graphic way of placing web elements so tables were creatively misused. They did in fact limit what designers could do. The correct way to handle this is with CSS. You can place anything anywhere you want by simply creating empty boxes and filling them with data, images, or more boxes as you like where you like and this is really the best way to do it. It can e tricky to learn, but not really hard, you simply have to get used to thinking that way and in pixels. One benefit as well is doing so in this manner, it will leaver your source code and data cleaner. Those with disabilities will find the web site easier to navigate, including those with vision issues and search engine spiders. All your "Look and feel" elements can be placed in a separate external CSS file, separating your web site information from the web site graphical look and feel (this is what makes it better for disabilities and spyders). Also, you can then swap out the CSS file and change the look and feel of the web site with little to know changes to the actual HTML file if it is well planned and designed. If this is an issue that needs correcting fast than Daniel's code should work. But in the long run you will want to learn CSS and eventually change the site to boxes instead of tables. But to not fear creating sites in phases. Phase one - get it up there, phase two - clean it up and improve it.
