Nigel Morris-Cotterill's blog

Not the best start to Friday to discover that some bastard is promoting illegal copies of my book "Sun Tzu and the Art of Litigation" hosted by Cloudflare on a domain released by Public Domain Registry (PDR) - a company we are already looking at because it is heavily featured, along with GoDaddy, in the latest wave of domain registrations for spamming - all with a .eu address. More in the imminent issue of World Money Laundering Report.

It's taken far longer than expected but as of two minutes ago, "How does that make you feel? Identifying suspicion in money laundering and terrorist financing" with all errata in the body of the book instead of on the more usual scrap of paper is available.

UPDATE: the title of the book was subsequently changed to Understanding Suspicion in Financial Crime and it was republished under that title but the content as as mentioned in this article.

According to Sky News Israel had a bad day yesterday. Ten of its soldiers were killed. In uniform, some within Israel's borders.

Sky news did not use such sympathetic terms when reporting what happened in Gaza.

When I started writing "Sun Tzu and the Art of Litigation" more than 20 years ago, there was no world wide web.

I was woken in the early hours of this morning by a message from a close friend, who works for an airline and was in Europe getting ready for a flight. "Check out MH17" was all it said. I checked. MH17, a Boeing 777, had been shot down while overflying territory controlled by Russian backed, Russian armed, Russian funded and Russian encouraged terrorists in the Ukraine.

A few days ago, I started writing a blog called "Taking a punt on ISIS." The title is a pun (I like headlines that twist language much more than those that scream "Top Ten Ways To..." and then say something utterly banal like "mess up your job application").

Tired of the security (and personal) implications of Firefox's default settings that show a "quick dial" image of recent pages when you open a new tab?

It's been two months since I last sat at my desk in Kuala Lumpur and a long trip to the UK for family reasons has demonstrated to me that there are significant differences in the way that the UK, so long seen as progressive and Malaysia, long seen as behind the curve, function.
