Marlon.ws Updates and Backups

Some site updates

Hello,

As you may know, I have made several additions to the blogs functionality. This includes behind the scene improvements, caching, and compression and interlaced loading of images. I also re-added the ‘social’ bar with the +1, Like, and Follow button. I have more time on my hands for my blog, so that means more irrelevant things for you to read. You can also visit Marlon.ws directly on your mobile phone.

Marlon.ws Mobile
Marlon.ws works perfectly with text based mobile browsers and Opera Mobile or Mini.

I also updated マーロン, to show a dynamic logo. Note that you need Unicode support on your computer. I’ve also added other fonts for news articles and the slogan. This may decrease loading speed, but this has been minimized as much as possible.

Thank you for your interest in Marlon.ws.

– Until next time.

Don’t forget to check out our shop with irrelevant products, powered by CafePress.com.

U.N. e-mail addresses leaked, and guess what?

I read a major tech. magazine today, which reported that around 170 e-mail addresses were leaked to Pastebin from employees of the U.N.. It seems that the digital war between two countries has started: Iran and Israel are even fighting over social media. This is pure speculation, but it may be that the government of Iran may be behind the leak. Iran has a nuclear history, and Israel too. I don’t want to put any country in front, but Iran itself has a history of nuclear weapons, and this may be payback.
This ‘war’ is pretty interesting, because this is the first digital war that really utilizes the available social media and launching propaganda websites (this isn’t very new: North-Korea does this since several years).

This war is the perfect example of combining digital war with weapons. It’s like watching small little kids fighting over chocolate(Gaza border) and a video game(Twitter) at the same time. But the deaths caused by such conflicts is always very sad. But still: is the digital war coming to other countries?
Who knows.
