The edge of the world

It was difficult to find the entrance. He knew that the path existed and was hidden in plain sight. Many had walked past it every day and every hour. In fact, when he found the entrance to the path, the place was crowded. People were everywhere walking about and not realising that right where they […]

Applying the least privilege permissions model… in life

Applying the least privilege permissions model… in life

This sounds almost technical, because maybe it is. I use this term at work because the technology that my company deals with reduces the risk of data breaches by removing unnecessary user permissions’ accesses to data.

The one man army

“I’ll do it!” said the soldier as he grabbed his rifle, donned his battle gear, and headed to the Land Rover. No one wanted to do the battle. The soldier was left all alone to decide if he would join his platoon, or to defect in order to fight the dragon behind the mountains. He […]

If I have it my way

If I have it my way, I would be up all night. Not toiling in labour that I can hardly believe in or stand for, but to relish in the serenity that only night can offer. The wife would have been satisfied, and the children would have been asleep. Climbing out of the covers and […]

The Prick

You see, I was really minding my own business. I do not stand in the middle of the road. I take my position naturally at the side, keeping out of the way of you folks walking by. You can’t say I am intruding into your space. Has it bothered you to think, as you hop […]
