Nice Little Scam… Didn’t Know I was that Important?!?!

 I didn’t realize I was that important until I got the email that I pasted below, wow “You were recently appointed as a biographical candidate to represent your industry in the Madison Who’s Who Among Executives and Professionals, and for inclusion into the upcoming 2007-2008 “Honors Edition” of the registry”. Talk about some generic description,…

Does IE 6.0 Stop Working When you Have Too Many Windows Open?

This happens to me at least 1-2 times per week. It’s actually not something that is specific to Internet Explorer 6.0, but is most frequent with this app due to the way I use it. The fact is, IE can be a resource hog depending on the websites you visit, especially GDI resources… But there…

Interesting AvSim post in regards to FSX and hardware upgrades…

Was forwarded this really interesting post by Mark Greenblatt on the AvSim forums (http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=show_mesg&forum=121&topic_id=414954&mesg_id=414954&page=).

Oddball Spam Email I got Today.

Somewhat of a twist from the old Nigerian scam emails. Why not just send an email with a quote from the bible and then beg for some money sent to an eGold account. At least this one is entertaining, hope they use the money to at least get some text editor with some spelling functionality 🙂…

I so Wish GMail had an API!!

Yes, I admit it. I use Gmail for my personal and www.ParadoxalPress.com email (through their Gmail for domain support). Not that I dislike Hotmail, and they have made great strides from the original version of Hotmail. For me it’s a matter of freedom and which software best suits the way I work and the needs I…

How a Simple Auction Turned into Viral Marketing…

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130144061675 This is somewhat funny. A mother whose kid sneaked some Pokemon cards in her grocery cart. Now she decides to sell the cards on eBay with a long winded description of how she ended up with cards… This turned into an auction with over 170,000 views and a sale price of $142.51! This is…
