The new Black Friday is the day after Christmas.

Keeping your server safe is one of the biggest concerns for website owners and IT managers. If your website is unsecured, it can lead to major hassles with downtime. It also can cost you business and make your customers very unhappy. This is a very bad scenario, so it is important to make sure your website is safe at all times. The best way to make sure that your server is safe is to keep it well protected. Follow these tips to ensure your server is safe and that you and your clients’ date is protected.
Keep Your Software Current
One of the easiest ways for hackers to penetrate your server’s security is by exploiting software that isn’t regularly updated. Prevent this by always installing any patches or updates to your server software the instant they become available. This is especially crucial when it comes to security updates. Keeping your software up-to-date is one of the most important steps in knowing that your server is safe.
When it comes time to reinstalling server software or reconfiguring it, make sure to always do this offline. Anybody who makes changes to their server configurations while connected to the Internet is asking for trouble. While you are changing the software, your server will be unprotected. It is usually just a matter of minutes for an unprotected server to get attacked if it is online. Be smart and perform all of your server upgrades offline.
Keep Things Simple
One of the easiest ways to know that your server is safe is to keep its purpose simple. You should always use one server for one purpose. While you can use a server to run multiple applications, this will increase the chances of it getting attacked. If one of the applications becomes vulnerable, suddenly every other application that is on the server becomes vulnerable as well. Limiting the server’s purpose to one application is a great way to limit risk and know that your network is as safe as possible.
Keep Security Tight
The password for the server should be something very difficult to crack. It should have multiple cases, numbers and letters that make it as tough to crack as possible. The password should never be shared outside of the IT department, and it should be limited to as few personnel as possible. You should also regularly update the password for maximum security.
Use a Good Host
If your server is not on the premises of your business, then it is up to the host to maintain the security. This means you need to have a lot of trust in the hosting company. Using a reliable and trustworthy host like Singlehop is one of the best ways to know that your server is safe.
College students spend the majority of their time online. While most of the time students are connected to the web is spent on useful pursuits and academic achievement, there is always time for distraction. Or, shall we say, students manage to find time to study amongst all of the distractions that the web provides. One of the best ways that students are distracted is by “memes”, which is pretty much any picture or video that goes viral, and then is, of course, replicated exponentially for maximum distraction potential. Indeed, writing the article took longer than usual because I found myself trapped in the grasp of the memes – and these are the best ones I found.
Memes come in many forms, and one of the most popular is a single photograph of a “stereotypical” student with various captions. One is the “college freshman” meme, who is a happy young man in a university sweatshirt – various captions include “Cites Wikipedia Article” and “Does laundry for the first time – dyes” (the sweatshirt in this one is pink). There is also the “lazy college senior” meme, featuring a scruffy lad drinking a beer, with quotes like “Doesn’t do the reading, dominates class discussion” and “Paper due in 7 hours, hasn’t decided topic”. There is also the “college liberal”, which is a photo of a girl with long dreadlocks and features many contradicting statements such as “Hormones in milk can be dangerous, drops acid purchased from a stranger”, and “Thinks laws will keep people from owning guns, smokes pot.” Another favorite is a woman who is in her 70’s and represents the “nontraditional” student, with quotes like “Correct history professor, remembers being there.” These memes are designed to be funny for anyone who is in college, but those who design the memes went a step further to make distractions a bit more personal.
My alma mater has its own Facebook page dedicated to memes. A popular one that recurs on that page is “unicycle girl”, because there is a student who rides around campus on a giant unicycle, and she is the butt of many memes. Many major universities have developed their own meme Facebook pages to form a sort of camaraderie for the students and alumni of the university. There’s even a list of the top 20 colleges where memes are “all the rage”.
Left out of memes
In all of my research, I did notice that there was a sector of colleges that were left out of the meme craze. Online schools are grossly underrepresented in the meme base, and online business management schools don’t make the meme base at all. So, if students from online schools are reading this, start making memes so that online schools can be made fun of, just like the rest of colleges.
We have all been there many times throughout our lives when we just weren’t thinking clearly or at all. Whether it is the time we locked our keys in our car or turned on the blender without putting the lid back on it, no matter what it is, we have all done something when, for some reason or another, our minds were vacant.
However, there have also been times when we have witnessed other people committing such acts, where we were compelled to ask, “Seriously, what were you thinking?”
