How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

Flaw in Philips Smart Light Bulbs Exposes Your WiFi Network to Hackers: In recent years, we have seen how hundreds of widely used “smart”, but insecure, devices made it easier for remote attackers to sneak into connected networks without breaking WiFi passwords.
Check Point experts today revealed a new high-severity vulnerability affecting Philips Hue Smart Light Bulbs that can be exploited over-the-air from over 100 meters away to gain entry into a targeted WiFi network, using just a laptop and an external wifi adapter.
The source is in geekspeak but I’ll summarize. If you have smart-devices, that are connected to your home wifi (known as the Internet of Things or IoT), those may contain weaknesses allowing hackers into your wifi connection and connected computers. Security cameras, digital assistants like Alexa, smart TVs, wireless printers, there are even smart fridges and faucets! Every week security patches are released as exploits are discovered. Smart devices must be kept updated, look in the manual for instructions.
