INTERPOL drop inter KL.

A few days ago our first – ah, no, second! – ever A-list guests dropped by our new office to see us. Ronald Noble, the Secretary General of INTERPOL, and our good acquaintance Noboru Nakatani, the head of INTERPOL’s new cyber division in Singapore, came to see us on a friendly visit that resulted in the official announcement of our cooperation to more effectively fight cybercrime on a global level.

We of course showed them round our new, not quite finished place of work, whose design and décor they kindly complemented. They were introduced to and joshed with some of our top experts, checked out the virus lab and the woodpeckers in it, and held with us meetings of both business and pleasure flavors. They were impressed; and from our side – we too were left with only positive impressions.

Calling all cyberswine – watch out! INTERPOL has joined the global hunt for all you lot. So I reckon now might be a good time to give up once and for all your malevolent maliciousness, repent, and go good and get nice before it’s too late!

So, if last Thursday evening anyone was annoyed the heck out of by a blue flashing light on a nice shiny sedan holding up traffic on Leningradskoe Shosse, well… apologies! For just that once it won’t have been the usual servants of the state and all their “VIP” hangers on. That will have been the world’s No. 1 international policeman leaving KL.

Off-piste and off-the-ground in Iceland.

Herewith, the penultimate installment on the enchanting island of Iceland; namely, on traveling off the beaten track on the ground, and up off the ground too – in a helicopter. In just four days we covered more than a thousand kilometers of Iceland, but these were anything but boring kilometers. From one place of – […]

Have an Ice day!

All right folks, now for glacial Iceland… Now, Iceland’s glaciers aren’t the biggest in the world, but all the same, the grand glacial vistas, the glacial lakes with icebergs, and the phenomenon of natural might… in sum it’s all fairly spellbinding. We checked out two glaciers while on the island. First up: Langjökull (here). It was here […]

Icelandic Waterfallism.

Iceland‘s a very wet country in the cool time of year, and very snowy in winter. (There isn’t a warm season here to speak of – unless you submerge yourself in hot springs for three months.) So, in terms of H2O here – there’s plenty. And since there are a great many volcanoes in the […]

Icelandic tectonic.

Everyone’s got a basic idea of how this planet of ours is constructed, even primary school kids. It goes something like this: in the middle of the planet is the core – the nucleus; then there’s the mantle, and on the outside there’s the hard crust, upon which you’re reading this blog. But the earth’s […]

Iceland: Niceland.

I’d long dreamed of one day getting to the very volcanic island of Iceland for a spot of sightseeing, trekking and leisurely driving. I’d heard great things from friends and colleagues, seen some awesome pics of the scenery there, and heard some of the island’s music, but only recently did I finally find myself spending […]

Your car controlled remotely by hackers: it’s arrived.

Every now and again (once every several years or so), a high-profile unpleasantness occurs in the cyberworld – some unexpected new maliciousness that fairly bowls the world over. For most ‘civilians’ it’s just the latest in a constant stream of seemingly inevitable troublesome cyber-surprises. As for my colleagues and me, we normally nod, wink, grimace, […]
