downdetector.com show more with a service' recurrent incident

Have you been using, or watching, downdetector.com as your primary resource to monitor your digital service performance, if not unscheduled downtime, for a long time, and have been going back and forth for it? It's where some people like us, technology savvy and the curious we knew, go to quickly learn about some digital services, whether household or corporate resource are being affected, and the impact of others, associated or not, with those in the current incident, as they are listed, either in the mobile app or its website counterpart.  Did you know that there are few services that never gets to the list, too? We'll give them 5 star if we can. While the majority of those companies and brands in its categories including telecommunications, finance, internet, social media and gaming, shows up repeatedly. This is true regardless of where your country, which a present disruption and instability is happening, the moment you checked the status of a service,  and if trying to be

Know thy time

It's a statement and work of Peter Drucker. He's the management practice master, the dean of the profession and the discipline in general according to his works, literature and practitioners themselves. He's behind the notable Non-profit's Drucker Prize for which he defined innovation as change that creates new dimension of performance, which means very big about time in human activity.

Leaders of all organizations, in business, health, education, technology including but not limited to innovation, except military which may vary in high degree for some reasons, knows about management and why time is the best argument for humans to not forget when doing their job.

In consulting, generally, this is probably the main reason why their outcome is crucial and that their fees are not that cheap. They do understand their job, the value they create and contribute to the organization they work with. They can also be fully aware to the broader aspect of business which is the subject of their work regardless of the specifics of a given chore.

However, fees may have been always at the bottom of the agenda. On top is the solution itself. That's what they are for and as far as we can see.

They know what they are doing and also the variables around their work. They dislike failures in their outcomes and no excuses if at all. They just deliver and have it verified, always in tandem, with their work and as they progress. The intervening ruler will flash in red if there is mistake. Which can be corrected immediately.

With IT the goal can be made even more precise. While many says IT is complex and it is so only due to human differences in their ability to handle their own business which is mostly drawn out by outside factors. Some would even equate medicine's specialization to IT's specific practice area. It's completely different, they are linked up and integrated. Medicine is not except when patients health conditions have already developed complications.

IT can be addressed right away with the job at hand. No need history. IT practitioners education of solid fundamentals would show why something is wrong with a business application or the entire enterprise systems are in complete disarray.

An IT practitioner that doesn't have any excuse but to move forward and work and solve problems, will have no issue at all except for things that are out of its control. Organizations or clients need to understand this very well. Of course, with the help of its IT practitioner or IT consultnat. It shows why with the 8Ps we created when we began IT consulting, and then it helps how our training, its pedagogy, must be developed differently from the mainstream at a later part of our enterprise. There are solutions and services to explore, a trial and error scenario for many, which can result into expenses which, and time, are two important resources not to waste. Time can also say if a measurement being used for a certain activity is effective and how major resources are being used up, for the existence, or to support the continuing growth, of the business itself. It also states very loud about where an organization is now and then with respect to innovation, business systems and/or IT maturity, its market and not ending with competition.

Philippine telcos blocking entire SMS text with internet addresses in it

If you are sending SMS texts to your friends, family or colleagues and they contain internet or web address including IP and email addresses, and even a period or dot separating, regardless of, your words and numbers, they are automatically blocked and not going to be received by your waiting recipient. Cooler heads must prevail here especially if an important message is urgently being expected. IP version 6 address is fine. However, an IPv4 including localhost address (given automatically to every computers and network interfaces as their own alone designed for troubleshooting purposes), and your money in the billion figure using dot as separators would be blocked.  If you send "local.business, naman.naman etcetera" or any words that made you use dot in between them, as part of the text, they will be blocked. There are some, that isn't blocked in this category. Like check.iclassed, some.ent, whatever.local etcetera, that is because they do not form any domain name at all

How functional and secure AES is

How functional and secure AES is? The Philippine electorate will once again go to polls and decide who will lead the nation in the next six years of their lives. This important event which will elect new president, vice president and 12 senators for national posts, and seats are also being contested for provincial, city and municipal levels, is expected to be counted unofficially in 24 hours, concluded or canvassed officially in a few days or so but authorities and observers expected it to be done in less than a week. Last presidential election, it was known three days after close of election precincts. This is especially true for nation states, not only the Philippines, that conducts their elections using automated election or computerized-and-networked voting systems. In PH, the past automated elections were encumbered with technical issues and fraudulent results, uttered and written everywhere by many concerned and affected individuals and institutions alike. This time, we could say

Philippine cyber campaign

Are Philippine institutions being targeted or simply being probed? We don't know for certain. It could be either or both. Whichever comes first? What we can understand, with the success of such attacks, is that they have found their way. Really.   How hard or easy? The attacker knows, but probably, also, those being attacked. Inclination should be there no matter how sophisticated our security systems are. In cybersecurity, we do a very focused job. Making sure we disappoint whoever is trying to gain access to any resource without permission and authority regardless of the environment we are in. What happened is that every asset deemed to have every variant of resource built-in, operating, that makes up the entire system working whatever it is trying to employ, in that case the primary purpose. Meaning, we have to know if we are running our system in a manner that is really secure, provisioned properly during design stage and managed continuously afterwards, post-implementation. No
