Not dead yet ….

January 12, 2008

I read that it’s generally agree that if a blog hasn’t had a new post within the last 3 months, then it’s probably dead. Oh dear, I think my last posting was back in September, but I don’t intend to leave this blog dead quite yet (nor indeed for a long while). Particularly as I’m now getting more visitors than I did when I wrote regularly! It’s not even true to say that I’ve had nothing to say. There have been quite a few events in the news which I wanted to comment on, but I just haven’t had the time.

One of these was the loss before Christmas by Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (UK tax raising organisation) of some CDs containing personal and confidential details of a large proportion of the UK population. This not only affected my family personally, but is interesting to me as an IT manager where one aspect of my role is to ensure that our organisation’s systems and personal data remain secure. My thoughts went slightly in a different direction, however, to the general (somewhat deserved) condemnation of the government’s incompetence. However it’s now late and I don’t want to write this all at this moment. So come back soon for (hopefully) some further reflections…
