The Peer's web site
where good people go for info

  This is an amazing place. The World Wide Web! I placed this server online because I thought that there should be someplace we Peers could call home. My friends and family seemed to be interested, so after not a little work... here it is. Enjoy.

  You should think about putting up a web site of your own. Then, when someone asks you if you have a web site, you can say "Of course! Just go over to WWW.MYSITE.COM and see for yourself." You could even send and receive email with the right hosting company! You'll be able to tell all of your friends to start sending email to MYNAME@MYSITE.COM

  Need another reason to have your own web site? Here's a trick that I use: keep your bookmarks online so that you can access them from anywhere! That's right; any computer with web access can be your personal computer. Just log onto the internet; open the browser and point it to your web site. Voila! All of your favorite links are instantly available, just as if you were at home on your own computer.

My #1 pet peeve is software that installs when you didn't ask it to. Especially when the only thing that app does is track your web browsing,  profile you, steal information or turn your computer into a "zombie" to be used behind your back to send spam, attack other computers or even worse!

This type of software is called malware ("malicious software").

Just as important as protection is
recovery if something goes wrong!


This is the online backup I use

 


Part of a good defense is preventing the bad guys from getting inside in the first place.

 I use the services on the right because I've found that they are very effective at keeping the bugs out.
