Jimi Matthews exits SABC

SABC’s acting CEO Jimi Matthews posted his resignation letter on social media earlier today.

“For many months, I have compromised the values that I hold dear under the mistaken belief that I could be more effective inside the SABC than outside, passing comment from the sidelines. In the process the prevailing, corrosive atmosphere has impacted negatively on my moral judgement and has made me complicit in many decisions which I am not proud of… What is happening at the SABC is wrong and I can no longer be a part of it,” he wrote.

Twitter universe had the following to say about his exit , using the hashtag #JimiMatthews

Sand is running out … #DaysOfOurLives

American Tv Show Days Of Our Lives will no longer air on SABC 3 from 20 July.

This is as a result of SABC’s plan to have at least 80% local content on its commercial TV station.

Twitter reactions using the trending hash-tag #DaysOfOurLives …

Woman of smash and grab … #RacistRant

Recently a woman was a victim of a smash and grab. When the police arrived on the scene, she went ballistic with her racist outbursts.

There is a video-clip of what happened.

The hashtag on twitter that is trending is #RacistRant :

Here are my views:

Some tweets by others.

DDOS … What is it ?

DDOS is an acronym for Distributed Denial Of Service

For those who aren’t sure what that means.

Think of a puzzle. Take all the pieces of the puzzle and throw it at a person.

The person won’t be able to dodge all the pieces of the puzzle.
Not easily anyhow.

DDOS is a scenario when a site gets over-loaded with requests and if the site can’t handle it – it crashes.

Thereby giving an ERROR404

Yes there is software that one can implement. Best to speak to your ISP (Internet Service Provider) about steps to try to prevent it from happening.

Automatic moderation of blog comments

I have seen other bloggers make the setting on their site
`if someone is good’ by making a good comment then all comments by that person must be good and
therefore `approve all comments by that user’.

But what happens if that user’s profile gets hacked and suddenly everything posted to your site is automatically approved ?

Always assume the possibility of something going wrong somewhere… moderate manually.

Not on facebook, but I am on twitter

Ever since I lost my personal facebook profile a few months ago, I gave up on creating a new profile.

The business fan-page is still on facebook.

I am, however , on twitter.

So please, follow me.
