    Merry Christmas

    On behalf of all the Escouts Team - Richard, Jon, Dave, Daniel, Rich, Graham, Barry and myself, we would like to wish you a very happy Christmas, and all the best for the new year.

    On a side note.. security!
    Please, please, please make sure you keep your websites up to date. Escouts offers free hosting to Scout groups from all across the UK, but we can only keep this service free and of a good quality if all your websites are running the latest versions of software/applications.

    Take the time this holiday period to check that any installations you have are running the latest versions of any software/applications you have installed, and also ensure that your site isn't being used to send any spam emails.(if you are not sure how to do this raise a helpdesk ticket)

    Also, your Escouts:Community account should be secured. Please use safe passwords and check when you last logged in to make sure your account is being used by you only. Last night, I emailed users who had set their password to their username, this is extremely unsecure. All these passwords have been changed and the account owners informed. It is no longer possible to change or register with your password as your username.
    May I suggest you, instead of using a password, use a passphrase, for example, instead of having your password as "toast" you could have a passphrase of "I like toast", to further the complexity of this password, you could substitute letters for symbols and switching case, using the previous example "| liKE t0a$t" would be very secure.
    If you think your account may have been breached, contact any of the Escouts team who will lock the account, and try and find out what has happened.

    To get more kids we need more adults - are we getting the message yet?

    What do you stuff a Parrot with when it's dead? Polyfilla!

    Anyone else for a cracker whilst I get my coat?

    Only use sharp knives. Blunt knives are more dangerous.
