A lot of shit can happen to innocent users which is why so many are looking to VPN for their online security. This is especially true if you’re tired of people virtually spying on what you’re doing on the Internet!

How Does A VPN Work?

A VPN, or Virtual Private Network, connects two computers securely and privately over the internet. So, once you’ve joined a VPN client you connect to a VPN server on another computer and by using encryption and other security measures, all your online activity is being hidden from those unwanted prying eyes. Just to be clear, this means no-one can see which websites you visit, what you download, or whether you use Skype, bit torrent, or any other applications!

Being an Aussie I was attracted to NordVPN.

NordVPN works at the TCP/IP level, which means all your applications are secured, not just your web browser. VPN service can protect your whole system and network, including your mobile phone, tablet, and even TV. It also protects all your applications, such as your web browser, Skype, Facebook app, online poker software, etc.

NordVPN uses military-grade encryption to hide your traffic from prying eyes. It’s fast, with low ping times, and our servers are designed to withstand heavy traffic, making them ideal for fast Internet browsing, HD video streaming, secure VoIP, and more.

Checking out their website I discovered that they’ve been offering their VPN services for over ten years, That is so important when looking for a reliable VPN provider. Something else that’s really important is a VPN provider that allows easy installation on your computer or device.With  NordVPN all you do is download and run one file. That’s it! It’s so easy that “anyone can set up our software and get online in seconds. NordVPN supports any device, including Android devices, iPhones, iPads, game consoles, Macs, and PCs. There are no bandwidth limits, so no matter what device you use, you never have to keep your eye on a meter.”

Most people don’t like to join any online company unless they come with some form of recommendations. NordVPN has been reviewed in torrentfreak.com, vpncompare.co.uk, vpncoupons.com, vpnfighter.com, vpncreative.net, bestvpnservice.com, proxybay.info, securitybydefault.com, vpnsp.com, schoolofprivacy.eu, top-anonymity.com, vpnpaid.com, as well as other outlets.

What’s even better is they’re PCMag’s editor choice, and you can get a VPN account for only $3 for a limited time as there is only a limited number left!

When The Courts Get It Wrong


Do courts get it wrong when coming out with their judgments? The obvious answer to the question, do courts get it wrong is yes! Why? Because courts are presided over by judges and judges are human. We all know that humans are fallible and they’re prone to making mistakes. The trouble is that there are times when those mistakes are so bad they’re laughable.

The Courts Get It Wrong With The Woolworth’s Case

Courts get it wrong with woolworths

The following is one of those cases. It all began when this man, Steven Willmott, decided he was being discriminated against whilst applying online for a petrol station console operator’s position. Apparently he found three of the questions offensive.

What makes the ruling of this case totally unbelievable is those questions were;

  1. His date of birth
  2. His gender
  3. Proof of his right to work in Australia

These questions were mandatory, as they usually are, and because he didn’t want to answer them he decided to take Woolworths to court and won! Can you believe that? How in hell can those questions be considered as being discriminatory? Lets look at them individually?

The question of age is very necessary because certain jobs require you to be over 18 to be eligible.

The question of gender? OK, a woman might find that discriminatory if she thought she might not get the job because of her gender  but that would be a pretty big stretch,

The third question, proving his right to work in Australia, as far as I’m concerned it totally legitimate. “The company argued that it had a legislative responsibility not to employ unlawful non-citizens, as defined in the Commonwealth Migration Act.” I would have thought that alone would have exonerated them as far as the third point was concerned. Besides, why wouldn’t you divulge that information?

The reason for came about after reading the following article. After some research I managed to find another article where Steven Willmott defended his actions. Apparently it had more to do with his fear of identity theft than anything else. This was because he was required to present his birth certificate, passport and driver’s licence as part of the application.

That kind of makes a bit more sense but even so I feel the judge got it wrong. What do you think?

FlexSqueeze2 How Good Is It Really

This post is actually so much more than just promoting FlexSqueeze2 although that will become apparent as you see just some of the things it can do,

Just last week I showed you how mobile friendly FlexSqueeze2 is. While FlexSqueeze2 is one of many themes that is mobile friendly it doesn’t solve the problem for my websites. That was brought to my attention by Mitch of I’m Just Sharing during one of our many chess games. Speaking of Mitch, you should check his Social Media Won’t Solve Your Problems post.

I’ve got two websites which I designed from the ground up. They took me bloody ages to get up and running. Needless to say both websites are not mobile friendly. I converted one the other day from the old website to the new one which is using the WordPress platform. And of course, FlexSqueeze2. That website was my first ever website, The Elusive Pot Of Gold.

While those old websites took ages to create, and never really looked truly professional, the new one took next to no time and looks pretty bloody good. Best thing was I didn’t have to use any HTML! Because it was too hard to modify the old website I rarely bothered. The new one is so easy to modify I will be able to add new content or update the old content with ease.

To show everyone, especially those not familiar with WordPress, I made a video as I updated my second website, BlogSire. You can see from the video exactly how ‘plug and play’ the FlexSqueeze theme is. I say that because there are some out there who have disputed that fact. Something that I’ve found to be absurd as I have used this theme for ages and have watched it develop into the brilliant theme that it is.

The image above shows you what Blogsire.com used to look like. The inserts shows how it looks to Google as well as the fact it was far from mobile friendly.

FlexSqueeze2 Has Many Features

It’s true that FlexSqueeze2 has many features, way too many to cover in this post. Some of the features covered in the video below include;

  • The ability to have a full width header. You can select from one of the many headers included in the theme or upload one of your own.
  • The ability to have a unique background of your choice. Usually the background scrolls up as you read the post. You will notice in the video how FlexSqueeze allows the background to remain static. This is great if your background has a company logo or something because it stays in view while they’re reading the post.
  • You can change not only the colour and size of the text but the actual font itself! You can even use Google Fonts.
  • You can have a transparent background which makes your blog look more like a website if that is the look you’re looking for.
  • As you’ve seen from past posts you can have a different header for pages as well as categories.
Creating A Mobile Friendly Website With FlexSqueeze2

The only problem with this option is that you can’t incorporate your html pages into your new mobile friendly website. You could link to them but why would you want to considering they’re not mobile friendly. I’m going to edit the html pages letting readers know they’re a better and more functional website whilst linking to the new websites.

What do you think of those transformations?
