IET reduce price of ‘Restoring Baird’s Image’

Posted on: November 27th, 2014 | Category: Uncategorized

The IET have announce a price drop until 19th December 2014 of many of their books including ‘Restoring Baird’s Image’. The book is now £17 against a list price of £34 and against a standard member’s 35% discount price of around £22.

It’s NOT obvious from their website, or even searchable from either their main website or via Google search. You would really need to type in –
or ring +441438767328 or 01438767328 from within the UK.

Their instruction for phone orders is –

“To order simply quote the code “BOOKSALE50” for telephone orders.”

Hackers attack!

Thanks to someone flagging that the site had been hacked, I’ve now restored the site to its original status. The hacking was embedded advertising. Nothing more thank goodness.

It’s a sign of the times, that some person or people can break-in to your website and effectively spray-paint a lovingly-created canvas. This being the web, they get away with it. To me this is a waste of my time both trying to repair the damage these vandals have incurred and trying to find out how they broke in.
