" Kamehameha V (1830–1872), born as
 Lot Kapuāiwa
reigned as monarch of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi

 His motto was "Onipa`a": immovable, firm, steadfast or determined;

 he worked diligently for his people and kingdom and 
was described as the last great traditional chief.  

His full Hawaiian name prior to his succession was
 Lota Liholiho Kapuāiwa Kalanimakua Kalanikupuapaikalaninui Aliʻiolani Kalani-a-Kekūanaōʻa. "

 " The FBI is warning
 that hundreds of thousands of computers
 could lose their Internet connections
 come July, 
unless they take steps
 to diagnose and disinfect their computers.
The problem is related to malware called DNSChanger 
that was first discovered way back in 2007 and that has infected millions of computers worldwide."
