    <p>Lava from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has destroyed about 600 to 700 homes since it began flowing early last month and there's no sign of it stopping anytime soon, officials said Monday.</p> <p>Punctuating that point, Kilauea again erupted early Tuesday with a blast similar to a series of explosions that have sent towering columns of ash high above the island. A 5.3-magnitude earthquake accompanied the latest eruption.</p>

    The PCI Security Standards Council, the body governing credit card transactions, has set a deadline for disabling early versions of TLS/SSL to June 30, 2018. What are these technologies? TLS (Transport Layer Security) and SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) are fundamental to internet transport security. Early versions are still fairly common in older infrastructure. Not updating to the newer versions by the deadline could cause your organization to incur a major fee and potentially halt taking credit card transactions. Why is the TLS update critical?  Let’s take a step back and lay some groundwork. TLS and its predecessor SSL are a set...

    March 2018 was the least active month for sunspots since the middle of 2009, almost nine years ago. In fact, activity in the past few months has been so low it matches the low activity seen in late 2007 and early 2008, ten years ago when the last solar minimum began

    Four people have died after after a huge explosion demolished a grocery store and the flat above it in Leicester. Passers-by dug through the burning wreckage of Western Park Stores with their bare hands as emergency services raced to the scene, with flames shooting 50ft into the air. The cause of the explosion, which occurred at 7:20pm last night while the grocery shop and its neighbouring takeaway restaurant and bar were open, remained a mystery today with gas engineers on site. Eight people were taken to hospital with injuries and this morning it emerged that four have died, while one...

    Microsoft Paint, the first image editing software experienced by countless photographers and PC users around the world, is being laid to rest. Microsoft has announced that it’s abandoning the famous program after 32 years. The Guardian spotted a newly published page on the Microsoft website with a list of Windows features that will be removed or deprecated in the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. Among the many entries is a simple line that reads, “Microsoft Paint,” with an indication that it will be deprecated. Paint, which first appeared on Windows 1.0 in 1985, has been replaced by Microsoft’s new...

    U.S. cybersecurity firm CrowdStrike has revised and retracted statements it used to buttress claims of Russian hacking during last year's American presidential election campaign. The shift followed a VOA report that the company misrepresented data published by an influential British think tank. (snip) VOA reported Tuesday that the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), which publishes an annual reference estimating the strength of world armed forces, disavowed the CrowdStrike report and said it had never been contacted by the company. Ukraine's Ministry of Defense also has stated that the combat losses and hacking never happened. (snip) After CrowdStrike released its...

    A word of warning from a retired IT guy with vast experience in multi-platforms. The latest Windows 10 cumulative update dated 12/13 (KB3206632) has proven to be the death of of my Dell Dual Core 780 desktop. I should have heeded the warning signs from the last two big Win 10 updates on this box, as they were troublesome to install, and brought the machine to it's knees both times. But, I was still able to get the machine through the installs both times. This one though, put the machine face down in the mud, and I couldn't even recover...
