ATM Trouble Rebooting

The other day I saw an Automated-Teller Machine (ATM) having issues in rebooting. I thought, “Whoa, what could be the issues?”

And a few seconds after that, the screen explained everything.


Internet Explorer version 6 is super old

By the way, H’s comment the other day made me check with WordPress support.

I am quite aware of the situation so I sent a snapshot to the WordPress support e-mail. The problems are indicated by red arrows:

I wrote: “Hello. Here is the screenshot. Only “Pe” is visible at the far right (to the right of RSS Feed).”

Notice that I included the IE version window slapped in front of the snapshot:

And here is the reply from WordPress support team:

“Hi there,

Looking at your version of IE, Internet Explorer 6, that’s a pretty old version: are you able to upgrade by any chance?



Apparently the commenting issue affects older Internet Explorer (IE). To whom it may concern – please upgrade or use Firefox.

IE is dying. Please let it go. Switch to other internet browsers and turn over a new leaf – new decade is around the corner.

Gas Hub Day 2

I woke up very late, exhausted from staying up late. Some of the guys bothered me for permit signature. I woke up for a while to attend to that… and went back to bed again.

Closer to noon, I woke up and refreshed. The work progress is behind a little. But still in OK shape so far.

Dell Latitude running Ubuntu


CB is helping me with the setup of Latitude – dual boot to both Windows XP and Ubuntu.

I have to admit. Some industrial software still depends on Windows to run.

Hackers broke into Windows-based ATM

Hackers broke into Citibank Windows-based ATM. The ATM’s infrastructure was built on Microsoft’s Windows operating system.

A critical issue in the investigation is how the hackers infiltrated the system, a question that still hasn’t been answered publicly,” Robertson reports.

Erm, I thought we knew that the infrastructure was Windows-based, duh?

All that’s known is they broke into the ATM network through a server at a third-party processor, which means they probably didn’t have to touch the ATMs at all to pull off the heist.

Ditto. Obviously the online security had been breached.

Why do you still cling on Microsoft Windows? The security is ridiculous.

If you’re smart: switch to Apple.
