Just testing 'Twitter' to see if it's back after yesterday's massive 'Distributed Denial of Service Attack' DDoS, allegedly by Russian hackers. It appears to be working OK but the less than tacit message from whoever was responisble for the outage at Facebook, Google and Twitter is very clear: "We can take your network down any time we like and the same is true of large parts of your critical national infrastructure too!"
Back here in Thanet, we've the BBC's 'Question Time' taking place at the Margate Winter Gardens a 7pm and I've a ticket. How quite I'm going to get there in time after flying a wedding banner over Deal castle at 5pm is another question but I'll certainly give it a try but don't expect me to be looking smart. Best hide at the back of the audience somewhere.
I've just finished reading today's Thanet Gazette and why anyone would want to visit our small island after reading it, is anyone's guess. Personally I find the pages and the editorial they contain deeply depressing, negative and I find it quite dismaying, that the Gazette struggles to find anything positive and normally not, about any aspect of living in Thanet!
Before I try and get this afternoon's wedding in, I have to drop by Westgate's Lymington road for the opening of the new recreation area. It's been a long time coming but thanks to the help and support of Kent county councillor, Robert Burgess and others , it's finally arrived.
