Back from the brink

Eagle eyed readers among you will have noticed two things.

The first was that Morecambe named “most desirable” digital nomad location was an outright lie, published on April Fool’s Day.

The second observation is that not a lot has been published since. In what were exceptionally busy times, I relocated twice in recent months – first to Iraq and later to Hong Kong.

I say “not a lot”; there have been a few posts – but of the wrong kind. Thanks to sophisticated hackers, a stream of garbage was posted that was tricky to put an end to. It could have been worse. The posts were education-related, so thankfully nothing sinister – and who knows – maybe they made a positive difference (though I shouldn’t really say that).

It’s another lesson. Stay alert, keep software up to date, and act quickly.
