host3.green-light.ca – Mail Delivery Problem

Some clients are getting Mail Delivery Problems to Yahoo. The root of this problem has been fixed and we expect the issue to dissipate completely within 48 hours.

The issues was caused by an exposed script from an outdated version of software being used to send spam to Yahoo and a few other providers. It only takes a few hours of this type of activity to temporarily cause reputation problems with providers like Yahoo that can last many days. It highlighted an oversight in our monitoring of this particular system  that prevented us from being notified until the reputation of host3 had already begun to sink. We’re sorry for that and have made changes to prevent it in the future.

One of the direct benefits of our CodeWatch program is that it would have prevented this issues regardless of our oversight. We’re systemizing much of the work done by traditional web developers to deliver a faster  more secure platform.With CodeWatch your website code is reviewed on a regular basis for outdated components and updated by qualified professionals.  Outdated software can be a very real security problem in the online world, used to amplify and distribute the messages of malware authors, identity thieves and their ilk to unsuspecting individuals world wide.

It’s therefor increasingly important to keep any application, online or off, updated and secure with CodeWatch

In my ongoing education/looking for inspiration I came across this Graphical User Interface Timeline and wow look how far we’ve come…

For this posts featured image I reached a little further back to the 1950s for a picture of a UNIVAC Computer Interface.

Some good productivity advice

If you are self-employed (as freelancer or an entrepreneur), there are few phrases that apply more aptly to your lifestyle than “time is money” … in fact, this is a concept you’d better master, or else you’ll be in really bad shape!
