Some of the news of the day is apparently Al Qaeda is forming a cyber jihad to attack social networking sites, like Facebook. Good luck with that. Facebook is the squirrely-ist site I’ve ever tried to use, and if Al Qaeda thinks they’re going to attack Facebook, they’re wrong. It will attack them, like it does everyone else.
I would have done a blog post this morning but WordPress was down, specifically my blog with a 502, which is a server error. And yes, I did wonder if the Al Qaeda took down my blog because of the numerous pictures (and articles) I’ve posted of America’s most influential power broker (see 1st paragraph)). I decided to check my stat counter, which is a separate piece of software from WordPress, looking for suspicious footprints.
And here, I should mention though I have several “dead” blogs, I have never managed to fully delete them off the internet, nor remove their stat counters. Yesterday, one of the “dead” blogs registered a couple of odd hits. The first is from the Russian Federation, who seem to have dropped by a few times, looked at God knows what and moved on. It appears they have a bit of an anonymizer, so I can’t tell exactly what they were reading. After they dropped by on the 12th, Washington, District of Columbia, Headquarters, Usaisc, came by and looked at a blog entry on the same dead blog where my kitchen sink is stopped up and there’s a black plunger sitting in it.
I find this behavior a bit odd, to say the least. The internet is an open forum and anyone can come and go as they please on blogs, facebook, twitter, etc. but why would anyone – Russians or U.S. government employees want to look at my stopped up sink. It makes me wonder if the cyber jihad is going to come by for a look see. The blog entry does have a picture of a big ass plunger, but as far as I can tell, plungers are not secret weapons, do not carry plutonium, and are readily available at ACE Hardware. Granted, they are black, and do look sinister.
