A few days ago I had a poke around the other Interwebs.
I have known for a very long time about the Dark Web which has a very bad name for itself.
In fact that’s not true. I discovered recently that the Dark Web is merely all those files that can’ be found using search engines. If I upload an image to this site but don’t link to it, then it then resides in the Dark Web. So the Dark Web is relatively uninteresting unless you know exactly what file you’re looking for.
For the real shit, there is a further Interweb – the Deep Web.
The Deep Web is a whole new ballgame. It is full of sites, forums and documents covering just about anything which features prominently in the law books. There are sites in there offering drugs [an amazing number of them], weapons, computer hacks and hitmen. Yup – you need someone to knock off the Missus, then the Deep Web is for you.
You need a special operating system to access the Deep Web. Out of pure curiosity I installed it and fired up its browser and there were all the sites I had heard about but never seen. To be honest, I was a little amazed at the variety of lawless sites. It makes for very interesting browsing.
In case anyone is wondering, I didn’t avail of any of the offers, nor did I buy anything.
