Apple ordered to pay legal fees for bloggers

Tuesday, January 30, 2007

A California court made it clear to Apple that if the company wanted to find out who leaked details of an in-development product to bloggers, they'd actually have to do it legally. That lesson cost the company almost $700,000 in legal fee reimbursement.

Spam attack
We don't like spam!

Written by Cynthia Fridsma
I don't know if you were aware of it, but our Heather Nova Online Magazine was off line for a couple of hours because of a rather massive spam attack on our server! It started on December 31, 2006. Spam was being sent all over the place, more than 12,000 Spam messages on the Online Gallery, 456,000 on the guest book we had installed and more than 10,000 messages on the heathernova.info site too.

We had to delete the guest book and we disabled the comments on the Gallery and http://www.heathernova.info is now being redirected to our main site (heathernova.us).

These spam attacks closed our site for a couple of hours, but we're back in the game.

This spam attack really is a crime and we will see if we can take some actions against these attackers because it is close to terrorism if you ask me.

Feel free to send your comment to cynthia@heathernova.info and I'll publish your comment on the site (as long as it isn't spam!).

p.s. I never send Spam into the world, if you receive a message with my email than please forward it to me (including the headers of the original message) so that I can take a look at the IP-address and see if I can go to the police with it! Thank you for your cooperation on this...

Protest song against hatred

There is so less tolerance in the world nowadays, especially against people who are gay, which is why I decided to write a song about a woman who loves another woman.

It is my way to protest against violence and less tolerance around the world because there's no reason to hate someone just because he or she is different. I believe in justice and freedom and we're living in a free world right?

This is a hardrock song, a little bit like a wild Jimi Hendrix song.

Feel free to send me an email if you have questions related to this song, my email address is cynthia@heathernova.info

Pierre wrote to me :

you're right Cynthia World finds it roots trough people and their differences . Our Leitmotiv must be tolerance to make us to feel better in OUR WORLD All the best Pierre

Did you know that third-party mail relaying occurs when a mail server processes a
mail message for which neither the sender nor the recipient is local to the server's
mail domain? While third party relaying has some legitimate purposes, such
as allowing mail messages to be routed around known mail problems, e-mail
hijackers (or "spammers") primarily use it to obscure their identity while sending
large amounts of junk mail.

What does this mean
It means that it is possible to send unsolicited mail via your webserver to other people around the world, using the IP-address (= Internet Protocol )of your server which will put your server on the blacklist of anti-spam software.

New site added: Indonesia, Flores Holiday Paradise

Flores Holidays

Indonesia's Nusa Tenggara region, the third island east of Bali, surrounded by a beautiful coral sea. Enchanting, a must see!
To encounter a unique and welcoming traditional culture living against a stunning backdrop of live volcanoes. The Florinese still build towering thatched houses, still dress in intricately hand-dyed cloth, still hunt wild boar with homemade harpoons, still practice a startling blend of Catholicism and spirit-worship (churches are often decorated with strings of buffalo skulls). And they're happy to share it all with visitors.


By using Agusto Rumat and his dedicated organisation to show you the beauty of this island.

Did you know that you can have a talking website?

Written by Cynthia Fridsma
I've been searching a long time to make our Heather Nova Online Magazine more accessible for people with dyslexics, people with learning disabilities, people with English as a second language, elderly with impaired vision etc.

Than one day I found a great service on the internet, provided by ReadSpeaker and I decided to contact this company to see if it truly works with as result a 'talking Online Magazine', if you click on the 'SayIt' picture you see on top of each page.
