Political appetite for online porn

The article, published online in the World Net Daily, reports that according to technicians who worked on the system, material downloaded by people using White House computers allegedly included streaming sex videos, gay pornography, and sexual activities with donkeys, goats and dogs.

The Clinton Administration has been prominent in promoting the use of legal and technical measures to block pornography on the Internet.

Staff at Government departments in Australia have also been found to have an interest in sexually explicit online material.

An Australian-based censorship watchdog site carries extensive listings of the IP addresses of computers located in government departments which have accessed Web pages containing nude and pornographic images maintained by the site's owner, Bernadette Taylor. Taylor's site logs more than 1200 visits to a selection of four pornographic web sites linked to from her site and includes IP addresses of those visitors.

The lists include the names of the Australian government departments whose staff have visited the sites, and includes visitors from the WA Health Department, Australian Defence Organisation, Parliament House, the Department of Workplace Relations and Small Business and the Government Secure Gateway Environment, amongst others.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
