5 Things You Should Know – Part 233

Here are 5 things you should know.

1. If you are looking to buy an item online and don’t need it immediately, leave it in your cart for about a week. You will most likely get offered discounts or free shipping.

2. Google has a website that allows you to enter a link and check if a website contains malware or a scam.

It is called Google Transparency Report, and can be found at;

3. You can check to see if your email password has been breached.

Within the past 2 years, there have been many breaches on websites where you entered an email and password for a login, and your passwords could be online somewhere for scammers to access. You can check to see if your email has been breached at https://haveibeenpwned.com and see the exact sites and dates that your account was hacked.

4. The character # is a hash, not a hashtag. That character followed by a word or phrase is a hashtag.

It has other names, of course, pound or octothorp.

But by itself, it’s not a hashtag. Combine it with one or more words: #NoTallFoxes and the two things together are a hashtag. A tag marked with a hash.


5. Baking soda works really well when it comes to removing splinters or glass.

Putting a baking soda paste (baking soda and water) over the area and leaving it on under a bandaid will help it to work it’s way to the surface.
