Here are 5 things you should know.
1. Always add your spouse’s name to your reservation at hotels, even if they have the same last name.
Always add your spouse’s name to your reservation at hotels. A lot of hotels have very specific rules about checking into hotels (for your safety) Spousal abuse is very common, and just because you’re married and have the same name doesn’t mean they are allowed to be in your room. It’s much easier and less complicated to go online, or call and add a name, then to wait for someone to verify they are allowed in the room.
2. The Petya Cyber Attackers email has been disabled. Paying the Ransom will do nothing.
The malware asks victims to communicate with the attackers via a single email address which has been suspended by the email provider after they discovered what it was being used for. This means that even if someone pays the ransom, they have no way to communicate with the attacker to request the decryption key to unlock their files.
3. DonationCoder is a great place if you need a small program or utility made just for you.
Requested programs can be silly, useless, whatever, as long as they don’t take too long to write; volunteer coders visit the forum and regularly implement the requests.
You can post requests here, and you can provide a donation (or not).
Most of the programs that are implemented are highly specific (here are some) and they’re all free to download.
4. Solar Eclipse Timer, an app that will walk you through all the different phenomenon during the total eclipse using GPS and voice commands to give you personalized question.
5. Web sites ending in .feedback like http://google.feedback or http://stackoverflow.feedback are scams and are not affiliated with the websites they claim to represent.
They charge companies $20/mo. to receive the feedback, or $600/yr. to remove the fake site.
