Remembering Radio Gaga

We went to see It's a kinda Magic! and I remembered the song Radio Gaga. I bought it on audio tape. Remember audio tape? I remember using these tapes to save and restore programs using a ZX81 when I was fifteen. This would be a good exercise in teaching any problem manager about patience. The procedure was fraught with potential issues and a person had to be real thick skinned to use it!
I wonder if I should add, learnt to program on a ZX81 to my CV?BTW: Craig Pesco as Freddie Mercury was absolutely brilliant! It has been a long time since I have been to a show and could sing along to all the songs, not only because I enjoyed it but because I knew the words! Queen was the greastest band for me, from 1980 to 1984 when I was at Grey College. They played Sun City in '84 and were the first through the Iron curtain. God bless Freddie Mercury, wherever you are.

Firewalls are becoming increasingly important in today’s world. Hackers and automated scripts are constantly trying to invade your system and use it for Bitcoin mining, botnets or other things. To prevent these attacks, you can use a firewall on your system. IPTables is the strongest firewall in Linux because it can filter packets in the kernel before they reach the application. Using IPTables is not very easy for Linux beginners. We have created easywall - the simple IPTables web interface . The focus of the software is on easy installation and use.
