cPanel - The Common Gateway Interface, or CGI

I noticed a check box to activate CGI on a site I was setting up in cPanel.

Here's the barebones from From TechWalla

The Common Gateway Interface, or CGI, protocol is used to run guestbooks, forums and other interactive scripts on websites, and cPanel provides webmasters and bloggers with a number of ways to get CGI access. Make a more useful and dynamic website by accessing and installing CGI scripts through cPanel.

The CGI Center includes scripts for a guestbook, a random HTML generator that rotates text messages, a statistics counter, the current time and date, a countdown timer for New Year's or some other special occasion, CGI email, a website search engine and scripts for various advertising banners.

Bombogenesis For The Air Masses

Bombogenesis is a mid-latitude cyclone that drops in surface barometric pressure by 24 or more millibars in a 24-hour period. The height contours pack around the center of rotation and the number of height contours increases rapidly in the developing stages.

Blackrock Overtakes British Government as Major Shareholder at Lloyds Bank

In the Business section of The Observer in mid-January I read that Blackrock has overtaken the British Government as the major shareholder at Lloyds Bank

The major US investment firm Blackrock has become the biggest shareholder in Lloyds Banking Group usurping the government, which is selling down its stake.

Blackrock, which describes itself as the world's biggest fund manager, with $5.1 trillion of investments, owns the largest stake in the bailed-out bank as the Treasury’s holding has now fallen to 5.95%.

The Treasury makes a disclosure to the stock market every time its stake in Lloyds falls by one percentage point, and an update earlier last month showed its holding falling below 7%.

In a stock market announcement on Monday, the Treasury said it had sold a further 700,O00 shares to push its stake below 6%.
