My Two-Cents Worth~

The WWW is a wonderful thing,but hey folks nothing is FREE,you pay one way or the other.

If you delete all your web history and you have a bad memory you are only making it harder on yourself.

The government knows everything about everyone already.Why do you think acquiring a new drivers license is so hard these days?

I mean don’t even bother unless you have proof of who you are,who you married,who you divorced.Where you went to school,where you were born.What your dad did for a living.You get the picture…Right?

If you feel someone is watching you,and you are a paranoid person from the get-go stay off the WWW.You are being watched and there is nothing you can do about it.

That said ~ stay safe and don’t be stupid.

Be careful of email attachments.Make sure your passwords are not easily compromised and change them often.

Make Naked Security your companion and friend on the NET.

Windows Secrets is another great place for info and tips on sailing into unknown waters.

The Man Fred Langa is awesome.

Email Scams


For all my readers that fly with me on ~Galvanic Jumpings~

Beware of a new email scam.Usually comes into your yahoo account and asks you to change your bank,google and Facebook passwords.

Strange it doesn’t say to change your yahoo password because hey they already breached it.

It’s always a good idea to change your passwords to something more secure then say a four letter word.I did some research and came up with the same issue.

What about the future of Flash ?


I was trying to play the latest episode of “Once Upon a Time” on ABC player and granted I have the latest browsers and updates it would not play.I found this interesting article on the future of Flash and how Google does not allow the plugs for ABC Player to operate.

Video Encoding & Streaming Technologies

Long time passed since my last post on this blog. I have been very busy in an important video streaming project but this is not the only reason for my absence. I have also wanted to wait and take all the necessary time to analyze, ponder and “digest” the infamous Flash affair.
I will not hide my bitterness about the fact, but I’m also more optimitic now, after I have seen the real consequences and have had the time to elaborate on the future scenario. I’ts not all a bed of roses but I’m somewhat optimistic.

First of all, fortunately, I’m not limited to Flash technology in my consultancies. I work with .net technologies for many years and I have designed and deployed successful streaming services in HLS with both Wowza Server and FMS 4.5

You also know that I’m an encoding expert with important success cases and a deep knowledge of commercial and open source encoders…
