Cup of Coffee and some Sunday Morning Thinking’s…

Finally got some sleep after the last few days of recovering from another major attempt to destroy Windows to Russia. This time Sveta was deep in the middle of it because she is on Winter holiday in Russia. So Sveta got an eye full of the destruction that is being swarmed against us. Yesterday after the initial attack the day before, while Sveta was working on the site, she got involved in a “Brute Force Attack” and that lasted about 8 hours before all the involved parties gave up…

Sveta had her eyes opened at what I face everyday and she looked at me and said, “We have to change somethings!” I kinda looked at her with that, “Yea Duh!” look and kept quiet…

Info time: Brute Force Attack – In cryptography, a brute-force attack, or exhaustive key search, is a strategy that can, in theory, be used against any encrypted data. Such an attack might be utilized when it is not possible to take advantage of other weaknesses in an encryption system (if any exist) that would make the task easier. It involves systematically checking all possible keys until the correct key is found. In the worst case, this would involve traversing the entire search space…

This is just one of the common occurrences that I deal with everyday. The attacks are based from America 99% of the time. I hate to tell Washington DC this but I keep backups of all my data on a daily basis now. Taking the site down in an attempt to erase data will only stop me for a few days. Very soon we will have a mirror system completed and then that few days will not happen. Just last night I downloaded a 2.4 gig file of data to back up all the web sites on Windows to Russia. While I might loose a few posts now and then, that will be it…

Sveta is a programmer and has taken to PHP and MYSQL like a fish to water. She loves dealing with it and she calls herself my system administrator now… 🙂

Well my thinking’s are not all CSS, HTML and PHP they also drift towards the fact that we just ended our Orthodox Christmas here in Russia. Also I got a pleasant e-mail from a friend in America and he is traveling to Russia this March. I am hoping that he will be able to stay with us a few days. He travels to Russia about every three years and you can see it in his eyes that he would love to live here one day and retire. As he mentions in passing several times before, Before the work pace in America kills him…

Sveta is sleeping in this morning and Boza and I have walked about an hour in the freezing cold. Ice is coated on everything and the air is so crisp and fresh. I love it when walks are like that. Boza loves walks anytime and anywhere…

I am going to have another cup of coffee chicory and wait for my sweetie to wake up. After all the work she did on Windows to Russia she deserves to sleep in this morning. She was a good system administrator… 🙂

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, who has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home (&) Honestly, I have no idea how much to ask for, but is a gift of even $1 something you'd be able to consider, to help keep Windows to Russia online in a Tiny Russian Village?
