We’re all familiar with how telemarketers occasionally interrupt our lives, often at the most inopportune times. However, even more upsetting is receiving an unexpected phone call claiming that your PC has been infected with viruses and can be cleaned only for a hefty fee. What’s worse is that the caller is almost certainly a fake — a bad guy who pretends to work for Microsoft or one of our partners.

A fantastic collection of the Manic's music.
If you are an occasional fan, and not sure where to start - get this album.
Truly brilliant rock, and a real bargain at under £4!

As reported in this BBC article, the amount of household rubbish being rejected for recycling in England has increased by 84% over the past four years, government figures show.
Councils say they are working to stop people putting the wrong items in bins.
The cost to local authorities of re-sorting so-called contaminated recycle bins is said to be the primary reason the vast majority of the waste is being rejected.
Were you aware that these items can't be recycled?
Pizza Boxes (if stained).
Paper Coffee Cups.

Network-attached storage (NAS) is a computer data storage device connected to a computer network providing data access to group of clients.
NAS systems supplied by Donline are networked appliances which contain two or more hard disk drives, arranged as a RAID array, which provides redundancy should one hard drive fail.
Network-attached storage removes the responsibility of file serving from other servers on the network. Potential benefits of dedicated network-attached storage, compared to general-purpose servers also serving files, include lower initial costs, faster data access, easier administration, and simple configuration.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) have just come to a settlement agreement with Harley-Davidson, which sees the American motorcycle manufacturer agreeing to pay a $12 million fine for its Screamin Eagle “super tuner” devices.
While not quite the Dieselgate scandal that caught Volkswagen circumventing EPA emission standards, Harley-Davidson’s “super tuners” do provide an aftermarket solution for motorcyclists to circumvent the emission devices on their motorcycles.
