Secondary  210.55.111.1

Enter 210.55.11.13 into the address bar. If it brings up the Spark webpage but www.spark.co.nz doesn't, it is more than likely your Internet connection has an issue with its DNS settings.

This only affects users with these keyed into the Network adapter IP4 settings.

ISP (Internet Service Provider) affected  have been Vodafone, Telstra (now Vodafone)  Packing Shed and Telecom Xtra. Their DNS settings are on page 18.

A few fun facts about SSDs and hard-disk drives

•If you carry around highly sensitive data in your notebook, Secure Drives (site) offers an SED-equipped solid-state drive with a built-in self-destruct feature. The drive has its own cell phone; should you lose your computer, you simply send an SMS message to the drive. (It can also be configured to automatically self-destruct if it can't receive an SMS message, or by other means.) Like something out of a James Bond movie, the drive self-destructs by fracturing the memory chips with an ultrasonic shockwave.

•Data is stored on a spinning disk in concentric circles called tracks. On a typical PC drive, 60 to 100 tracks fit within the width of a human hair.

•Spinning disks are sensitive to noise. Yelling really loudly at your computer could cause vibrations that result in disk misreads and noticeably slower performance.

•The U.S. Department of Defense requires three or more passes for a secure data wipe. But if data on today's HDDs or SSDs is overwritten just once, it's gone forever — forensically destroyed.

•Newer drives store bits in overlapping tracks, like shingles on a house roof. The technology is called shingled magnetic recording (info).

•The outer edge of a typical PC disk-drive platter travels at 100 miles per hour.

•There are three trillion bits per square inch on the platter of a common hard disk.
