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

[TW] IT documents, audit and leaders

IT documents comes with different names such as the following:
- Manual or handbook,
- Policies and procedures,
- Management systems,
- Project plans.

In the real world we have various names with unique descriptions and purposes when in fact they could be made to do a uniform direction for which actions are based for the entire IT initiatives, probably the longest in IT lifecycle is operation.

The problem is our inclination on something else which is wrong. IT remains an IT area. Business remains a business area.

The same problem is carried out when we conduct IT audit. Most audit are missing the gists in which IT is being used by businesses. We once said that an effective IT audit is conducted by IT people themselves but there is something wrong with that even. Business and accounting people have been doing it with a different bias and preconceived notions which doesn't make the cut for IT direction and audit respectively.

Leaders play the same game and so the problem continues and they are dependent on their technology people to carry out related stuff just like they made their businesspeople do theirs even before technology became the premium facility for doing business.

But the actions are taking technology to make things work and every document created must consider the former always and not the latter. If you've seen the SCF which stands as structure, content and facilities, these has a lot to do with any decent IT work document including any outcome- or case-based education.

I have a feeling this is all realistic in the real world and the methods being used here (I read the whole of iclassed contents, forthright) can be very extensive to regulatory regimes, tacit or not but there's more for a proactive effort for organization's cybersecurity, data privacy, etcetera. I especially like how CITO was opined, which is making technological progress a concerted attempt how we should see things and deal with them way a little better, albeit not much on OT yet.

[TW] Customers' trust and domains outside of internet's root

We all consider ourselves customers. Those who own businesses are customers even of their own. When we talk about the utility of technology, we often use customers to refer to our colleagues and some stakeholders that were provided access to our enterprise system. In business, customers are those who acquire and engage our products and services, respectively. Customers' trust is achieved and retained when we meet the expectations of our colleagues, stakeholders and the buyer of our products, services and ideas. Not only that we have assured them of those expectations in the contract or terms and conditions including some form of agreement but we attend to them sincerely when they need help. Giving them almost everything they need to form a decision. The experience must not be shallow and pretentious or they would notice whatever motive there is in between. Customers' trust is build not by the customers alone, just because we kept their experience up to their standards or we str
