New Website

I've made a new website, as lynx.io is dead. You can find it here: http://macr.ae/—it's similar in format to lynx.io, but has better articles, and they're all written by me.

lynx.io is loading, it shouldn't take long. If JavaScript is disabled, please enable it - the site will work better with it enabled.

In this article, I will explain how you can attempt to prevent them from damaging your board or hacking into your users' accounts. Read more
