Ok so I am not here to point fingers because both governments pretty much do the same thing duh… I will also add that Chinese attacks on US networks have increased in the past few months since the conflicts in Ukraine. Over this memorial weekend I have been monitoring many server nodes across different data centers and have definitely had in increase in brute force and scan attacks.
Today I have noticed a 400% increase in additional log records related to these attacks. Coincidence I think not, how else do you explain an increase in attacks a day before a major US holiday? Chinese PLA will obviously deny anything but if you analyze the data it definitely looks like a coordinated attack on US networks .Chinese Intelligence Assumes that no IT personal will be working over the weekend so they amp their attacks. Let let me say something to Chinese Intel… YES WE WORK ON HOLIDAYS TOO!… lol
P.S. I have logs to prove that too… xD
Here is a list of their most popular attack networks…

Seriously I am sick and tired of Twitter and Facebook and other sites always censoring information and not relaying posts outside of twitter. Why do certain topics not aggregate across the net? Oh Yeah because Twitter is a piece of crap service to begin with, I mean seriously in the 7 years of seo I still cant find any real significance only hype. Not only are they in bed with governments around the world suppressing news and information but they are actively trying to kill their API community in a sad attempt to gain more traffic to their shitty site. Facebook… I don’t want to get started with… all the bullshit involved with this company is hilarious from their blatant disregard for privacy to their state of the art facial recognition system currently running in secrecy for NSA and CIA (part of Tapwire). Its ridiculous, is there no one out there who dares to challenge the status quo? Has everyone truly become cowards?
I think its time for a new internet infrastructure that doesn’t run on the current TCP/IP structure, an internet that isn’t being developed by Universities (Internet2) who are funded by US military (or any for that matter). Any University secretly working on projects with military applications should be abolished, or at least have the title of University removed and boycotted and/or destroyed. The world doesn’t need institutions working frivolously on more weaponry for barbaric idiots who deem themselves superior.
Its time for a new mindset, one away from the all the left and right paradigm of political assholes who want to play the blame game while the world crumbles.
We need a new facebook and twitter service that is not influenced by governments, where the people running the company actually have backbones and stand up for what they believe in instead of giving into a seriously grotesque system. Seriously everything is this world should not be influenced by monetary gain, there is more to life then money.
People in science should publish their works as open source, contributing to humanity as a whole instead of a wealthy few.
Information must remain free and open and most importantly WITHOUT CENSORSHIP it is the only path to peace, a collective mindset where no one can hold any information/secret above anyone else.

DO NOT GO WITH ANY MARKETING COMPANY WHO OFFERS YOU PROFILES ON DIRECTORIES FOR SEO! I cannot tell you how many clients I have had complain to me about their so called online marketing and how its not working at all. This is because Google does not rank a profile as a separate entity but as a whole in that directory, If your marketing company is selling you on exposure through their directory don’t buy into it. No search engine will every give a profile higher ranking than a top level domain (www.yoursite.com) in fact google has taken steps recently to stop this profile boom and its rankings after multiple complaints from people all over the web about scams and what not.
Ok so I’ve Decided that I am going to construct my own private irc network to create a stable and private fire sharing network for my close friends, the question now is do i want to host it on a UNIX environment (Which is more stable) or A Windows Environment (Easier to set up).
The next step in the process was to determine hardware requirements and the hardware to use. IRC networks traditionally have 1 main server and at least 3 servers powering services (on large networks). I didn’t really need to have four servers because of the hardware (2.8 Ghz / 12MB L2 Cache, 8GB DDR3 1600mhz and 2.4TB of Hard Disk Space w Dual Gigabit Network Cards, unfortuanly the Hard Disks are all 7200 RPM 12MB Cache) which isn’t bad would allow me to take advantage of Virtualization. I Decided The next step was installing Windows 2008 Server Enterprise installing Hypervisor services and virtualizing 4 servers all running windows server 2003 enterprise, 1 as the hub and the other 3 powering the services.
The Next step would be setting up the SSL layer on the network to allow only encrypted connections preventing packet sniffing from prying eyes.
Once the network is up we can port replicate it to a VMware & UNIX environment.
The next step is now to customize and optimize your own client. Which is the fun part.
