Last week (May 2017) I made the changes to start serving Geekzone over HTTPS (and this blog too).

Since I first purchased one of their multiport USB chargers a few years ago I've ended up with quite a collection of their USB chargers and USB powerbanks. These days electronic devices running out of battery can be a major first world problem, so...

In August 2016, Symantec sampled 525 NZ business owners and operators about their perception of cyber security issues; all the businesses employed less than 20 people, and some of the discoveries show that we are woefully behind the eight ball.
