Random Pagan Verse:
In the Old Days, we could use the Art against anyone who treated the Witches badly; but in these times, we must not do so. Our enemies have invented a burning pit of everlasting fire into which their God throws everyone who does not worship Him,
except for those few who buy their penance from His priests (for their God always seems to be in need of money). Even as our Gods need our aid to make fertility for people and crops, so it is that the God of the Christians is always needing men to find and destroy us.
Their priests tell them that any man who is helped by us will be damned to their Hell forever, to the point that men are mad with the terror of it. But the priests also make them believe that they may escape this Hell if they give up Witches to be tortured, so that these men
are always thinking, "If I catch only one Witch, I will escape the fiery pit." For this reason we have our hiding places, and when no Witches are found, the searchers will say, "There arent any Witches, or at least not in this area." But as soon as one of our oppressors dies
or even catches a cold, the cry will go up that it is "Witches work", and the hunt will be on again. And while they may kill ten Christians for every Witch, they will not care, for they are countless millions while we are few indeed.

BlackBerry phones to the rescue after Sony?s hack
« on: January 02, 2015, 09:00:58 PM »

If there?s one company that has received a bit of good press from the Sony hacking scandal, it?s BlackBerry.

The beleaguered entertainment company dug up old BlackBerrys to use after Sony?s computers and landlines went down and company email was unusable following a cyber-attack that began last month, the Wall Street Journal has reported.

The emergence of the old devices as a haven for Sony executives has served as a free advertisement of sorts and bolstered BlackBerry Chief Executive Officer (CEO) John Chen?s focus on security to win government and business customers.

The fact that Sony had to unearth devices long relegated to storage also highlighted that BlackBerry?s share of the global smartphone market has fallen to less than 1% as iPhones and Android devices have gained ground.

?It?s proven that BlackBerry devices and the server are a lot more secure than any other solutions out there commercially available,? Chen said in a CNBC interview on December 19.

He declined to comment on whether Sony would have been protected against the hackers if it had been using BlackBerry?s services because he didn?t know the specifics of the attacks.

Lisette Kwong, a spokeswoman for BlackBerry, declined to comment on whether BlackBerry is working with Sony to bolster security.
