Odds and Ends
Here are some pages that don't currently fit anywhere else on the site.
- Example of a phishing email with screenshots
- Some screenshots of a recent email I received - one of many that are similar - and explanation of why emails like this should be disregarded at a glance.
- Filtering web content with OpenDNS
- An explanation of DNS and how to use the free OpenDNS service to filter out objectionable web content from computers in your home or small office.
- A Great Gift Idea
- Googling for a great gift to give? (Like language with a lot of alliteration?) Here is what one of my customers gave to her father for his birthday.
- Avoid bogus "Antivirus 2009"
- You're surfing around the Web, and you notice a little popup down by your clock that says you may be infected with spyware. So you click the popup and it's downhill from there.
- Avoid bogus "Security Tools 2010"
- This one works just like the "Antivirus 2009" above, but it looks different. I've included some screenshots here also.
- Make nvidia-settings sticky in KDE
- Set nvidia-settings to run at startup. (This is strictly Linux stuff.)
- Office 2007 Converter
- Having trouble opening a document that someone just sent you in email?
- Paul's new (Oct '08) computer
- My Dell XPS 630i.
