Another fraudulent email to steal my PayPal information

Posted by CJCM

Here is another attempt by some online criminals to steal my PayPal information. The email was supposedly sent by PayPal but if you scrutinize closely, it is very obvious that the email is an attempt by someone to steal your PayPal account ID and password.

The most obvious one is the link in the email where you are supposed to click to confirm your account.

Attempt to steal PayPal account information

When I hover my mouse cursor over the link, it shows right at the bottom left of my screen the actual URL, which is not PayPal’s URL, if I click the above link. So if you receive any email asking you to confirm your PayPal account, NEVER click the link from the email. If you are itchy to check your account status, do it by entering the URL directly into your browser address bar, just as a matter of pre-caution. It doesn’t hurt to be extra careful.

Malaysian will soon be able to enjoy greater mobility with WiMax

Posted by CJCM

The Malaysian government had awarded licenses to four companies, Bizsurf (M) Sdn Bhd, MIB Comm Sdn Bhd, Asiaspace Dotcom Sdn Bhd and Redtone-CNX Broadband Sdn Bhd, to operate WiMAx networks in Malaysia. Interestingly, they four had beaten some of the big names in Malaysian telecommunication industry such as the heavyweights DiGi.Com Bhd, Maxis Communications Bhd and TM Bhd.

The services are expected to be available to the public by year end. Once these are in operation, Malaysians will be able to surf the Internet at ultra-high speeds from any point in the country, as well as enjoy new or improved Web-based services. Lets hope we can get better sercvices and cheaper rates from these four service providers. I hope they do not emulate my experience with Screamyx.

Posted by CJCM

Lots of cheques at Cheques Gallery

Believe it or not, there are people who are making real money online… and there a lot of these internet marketers and bloggers who laughing all the way to their banks…. cashing in their cheques. And if there is one place online to see all these cheques …. it has to be Cheques Gallery. I got to know about this interesting site while reading about $700,000 Adsense Check over at romantika.name, one of the blog that I read every now and then.

You should pay a visit to Cheque Gallery, read how much internet marketers and bloggers are making online and hopefuly be inspired by them. Cheques Gallery is barely two months old but looking at the comments posted, it already has garnered a streams of followers and loyal readers. Don’t be surprised if Cheques Gallery would one day be featuring it’s own cheque. Cheques Gallery is written by … who else but Mr Cheque. Have fun :)

TheGoodBlogs.. a new blog community

Posted by CJCM

I just discovered a new blog community, TheGoodBlogs, that works in similar way MyBlogLog does although it is slightly different. The idea is still the same, that is to promote your blog contents through communities. Once you join as a member of TheGoodBlogs, you then create a widget which you can display on your blog very much the same way MyBlogLog displays the recent readers of your blog. The difference here is that TheGoodBlogs widget doesn’t show the recent readers but it shows the lates post from blog feeds within the blog category you joined or the blog title, which ever you set during widget creation. You can also choose to include and promote any community in the widget.You can create your own communities or you can also join communities already created by others. I have started a new community for Malaysian bloggers. All in all, TheGoodBlogs is what I call bloggers promoting each other in the blogosphere world, generating traffic, and discovering news things in the blogging world. You should give it a try. If you are Malaysian, please don’t forget to promote Malaysian Bloggers community on your widget. TheGoodBligs is still in Beta and it’s free.

Peace of mind with dedicated web hosting services by HostedSolution’s Charlotte Data Center, North Carolina

Posted by CJCM

Charlotte North Carolina

I have previously discussed about the advantage of using dedicated web hosting to cater for your growing business needs. In this followup review, lets look at other advantages of using a dedicated web hosting for your business needs. One such factors is more related to human-nature, we call it peace-of-mind. Why is this important? As a business owner that depends heavily on the reliability and security of the internet infrastructure running your business, you owe it to yourself to be assured that you are completely freed from having to worry about the level of reliability and security of your IT investment. That’s what dedicated web hosting managed environment provides for you.

Dedicated server hosting is favorable because it offers peace of mind in terms of control and reliability. A dedicated web administrator has more control over a dedicated server which makes it more secure. compared to a shared web server. By knowing what exactly is installed on a dedicated server a system administrator is able to fully in control on the software and application updates necessary to maintain the dedicated web server.

Having full control also means a server administrator has the self-sufficiency and authority to optimize performance by tweaking variables such as page load speed and general server resource allocation. This server reliability translates to customer satisfaction, which is you, and an increase in the bottom line goals of a your web site’s presence.

Having decided that dedicated web hosting is the way to go for some businesses, the issue is not over just yet. You need reliable and trusworthy partner to ensure you get a real peace of mind in your decision to go for dedicated web hosting.

There are many service providers offering dedicated web hosting in the face of this earth but for business owners in North Carolina, HostedSolution’s Data Center Charlotte is worth considering.

    Update on SlashMySearch

    Posted by CJCM

    My unrealized income from SlashMySearchI blogged about earning some extra money using a search engine SlashMySearch before in this blog. Subsequently, the same post made it to Darren Rowse’s Speed Linking Reader Edition. Here are some updates about my account since I joined SlashMySearch program 13th Feb 2007.

    I had 11 affiliates signed up under Level 1. I had 5 affiliates signed up under my level 1 affiliates. My total earning so far is US$2.84603 and I am not using it as heavy as I should have. What do you think? OK, I agree its not big amount, yet…. but for a new program, it pays not bad at all I must say. Of course I still have to wait until I reach minimum amount for my first payment but I am keeping my fingers crossed. I hope SlashMySearch will walk their talk and pay all affiliates as promised. Have you joined? How is your earning so far? Please share with me your experience using SlashMySearch. If you haven’t joined, please click here to be part of the community that earn money using a search engine. Good luck!
