    Life, James Hein, Published on 16/01/2019

    » A reminder for those operating in the digital world. This includes the internet, your phone, social media and basically anything in the public sphere.

    Safe surfing with a VPN

    Life, James Hein, Published on 27/08/2014

    » So how safe is your surfing? Not the water, board and shark kind, but what you do on the web.

Somewhere between you and the rest of the internet will be a domain name server (DNS) that knows how to get a message from out there back to you and vice versa. Or to put it another way, they know where you are.
