7 Ways to Combat Scareware - 10/19/10 05:05 AM
I have seen these pop-ups come through my networked computers and I know that it is tempting to hit the button that offers a solution to the "virus"...read below...the crooks are getting smarter but we can still beat them! Via Robert Siciliano (Identity Theft Speaker): You may have seen this before, it goes like this: a pop-up pops and it looks like a window on your PC. Next thing a scan begins. It often grabs a screenshot of your “My Computer” window mimicking your PCs characteristics then tricking you into clicking on links. The scan tells you that a virus has infected (3 comments)
I Need To Lower Your Asking Price By $500,000,000...SORRY! - 10/16/10 04:15 PM
By now you have probably heard that India's richest man just built a $1 Billion home. Not that I don't think that everyone needs a 27-story home with 3 heli-pads...but what happens in a few years when he wants to upgrade and build something larger...I mean we all know about how we outgrow our homes no matter how large they are. Clutter is just created and fills the space no matter how large...right? And I am sure his wife is now thinking she can purchase another 1000 dresses, 300 furs, 20,000 new pairs of shoes etc...right? So what if you (4 comments)
It's Official...Active Rain IS Facebook! - 10/08/10 04:10 PM
I want to rant about AR but what's the point? The site is great. I just wish they had a phone number readily available. I had to listen through a dozen saved messages on my cell phone to finally get a number from an old call I had from someone at AR. I had a simple question concerning my "HD" quality photo for my community sponsorship. I remember having an issue with Facebook concerning some intellectual property that they were stealing from me. Of course that was a very interesting thing with their not having a number to call and then (5 comments)

The Much Needed Time Away from What I Love - 10/03/10 09:57 AM
I just returned from a week away in Bonaire (Netherland Antilles...Curacao and Aruba as well make up the "ABC Islands) as depicted in the photo. That picture was snapped at a depth of 60 feet by my new dive buddy John. The guy has the most amazing underwater photographic equipment I have ever seen. That photo can be blown up to an incredible size with no loss of clarity. Maybe next I will just post the photo as large as I can. As far as what I love? I guess it's real estate because I got home at 2 AM this (0 comments)
