Our gigabit fibre broadband project is still going strong and still connecting folk who have had poor or no connection prior to getting B4RN. The story of determination is so good that some local film makers have made a short film about it which has been shown at the Cannes Film Festival. The HD version will be supplied once it has done the movie festival circuit. It's a great film that captures the spirit and determination of a community who refuse to be left in the digital slow lane. There are some great characters in this too! Grab a cuppa and have a watch.

I've been thinking about how to map the locations of the many BT green street cabinets for some time now. Due to the fact that BT refuse to release this data. This seems like an ideal crowdsource mapping project. What's the best tool to manage this sort of activity? I see that OSM has the tag and some have been mapped already.

If you have a Synology device that's visible from the web then it's advisable to shut all the open ports until Synology get to the bottom of the worrying #Synolocker ransomware exploit.
Hello Everyone, 

We'd like to give you an update regarding SynoLocker, a ransomware affecting certain Synology servers.

When trying to access DSM, it displays the following message "All important files on this NAS have been encrypted using strong cryptography", in addition to instructions for paying a fee to unlock your data.

What should you do?
If you are seeing this message when trying to login to DSM:

1-Power off the DiskStation immediately to avoid more files being encrypted 

2-Contact our Support team so we can investigate further. If you are in doubt as to whether your DiskStation may be affected, please don't hesitate to contact us at security@synology.com 

We apologize for any issue this has created, we will keep you updated with latest information as we address this issue.
