Is using public computer safe?

I have been wanting to know is using public computer safe? Yeah I did used before but I didn't know there are things to check on. How about you?

Places that have public computer usually are Airport, Internet Cafe, Library, etc. Do you check the back of computer before using any of the computer? I never. Now I think everyone should start checking whether there's any extra device at the back of it.

New storing device fits at the end of the keyboard cable connecting to the PC specialized to save all typed keys in it…
Mostly could be used in net cafes, exhibitions, hotels and airports therefore be careful especially the people who use the internet in these places to enter their bank accounts online or any other important sites.
After you enter the bank account and leave the PC it will be easy to open your account again as all what you have typed has been saved in the Black device.

Therefore, you should check the PC for any suspicious piece behind it before using the net in public places for important sites.
Please send it to all who you know to educate them against this fraud.

Demand Money for fogging service

My dad and came over last week and we have lunch together. He got a called while we are having lunch. My dad's friend called him that they are people trying to force in my dad's home. They are the people that doing fogging activities and demanding for money in the neighbourhood. I am not sure if these fogging services are from private sectors. As I know my dad have told them off that he's not interested on fogging service in his home.

You know what his friend told him on the phone? He said that these people don't care and they are wanting to force entry and gate to get inside to do fogging service. They are charging at least $150 per household. We never asked for their service and never accept their service so they are forcing you to take up their fogging service and demand for money. Maybe because these people are so fierce and violent they are neighbours that paid them money.

Great Blog Post Trains by Life is Colourful

Oh yeah I like the title and do you know what this is about? This is the post on how you can increase your Backlinks and Technorati Authority . If you know or like any good article around the blogsphere. Here's the chance for to you to show it off.

Personally, I like Make Money In Offline Contests by DaBlogger .

So here is what you need to do - follow the rules! :)
*** Beginning of Great Blog Posts ***
Life is Colourful has started a great blog posts train, that would help to compile some of the best articles around the web giving due respect to the blog post author.
Rule 1: Write a short blurb on this unique idea of giving due respect to great blog posts you like from your favorite bloggers.
Rule 2: Copy the content from “Beginning of Great Blog Post” upto “End of Great Blog Post” and paste it in your blog post
Rule 3: The line you add should comprise of “your site name” likes “your favorite great blog post from other blog than yours”. For example: Life is Colourful likes Auto article on Difference between all wheel drive and four wheel drive
Rule 4: Your favorite blog post can be your own blog post or from another blog you like. The blog post should be worth reading and you imagine, other bloggers would laugh at your taste.
Rule 5: Make sure you contact the bloggers and insist they participate so they can keep this going.
Rule 6: Come back to the original post and comment or contact us, so we can add your line in our post increasing your backlinks and technorati authority.

Add your favorite blog post here
*** End of Great Blog Posts ***
Alright, so start posting about this, comment here and we will update the list with latest contributers to this great blog post train.

Here comes Page Rank Olympics

Alright here comes the Page Rank Olympics which you want to know about. I am sure by now you know about your blog PR and Technorati Authority Ranking. It's one easy contest that any blogger can take part. Sherry Rambling blog has PR 2, TA 218.

The Olympics start Friday night at 8:08 PM, and so do the MTMD Page Rank Olympics.

1. Register for the Page Rank Olympics by leaving a comment at MTMD with your current Google PR and Technorati Ranking. All PRs and Technorati Authority Rankings will be verified on Saturday night.
2. Write a post on your blog about this contest and the Olympic Games.
3. Link to this post in your own post.
4. Comment back on this post that you have made your own post about this contest and the Olympic Games.
5. I will link to every participating blog, and author an Olympic-oriented post referencing every participating blog. All participating blogs are encouraged to do the same.
6. Use whatever graphics you want.
7. The blog that has the highest increase in Google Page Rank and Technorati Authority at the close of the Olympic Games on August 24th Wins.
8. Prizes will be awarded on August 31st, 2008.

Gold Medal: The blog that increases the most in both Google Page Rank and Technorati Authority will win a $100 Grand Prize.

Silver Medal: The blog that has the highest increase in Technorati Authority will win a $50 Prize.

Bronze Medal: The blog that has the 2nd highest increase in Technorati Authority will win a $25 Prize.

Note: While it is very unlikely that there will be any change in Google Page Ranks during this time since Google has gone through with an update in Page Ranks, the additional link traffic that this contest will generate may have a positive impact in the next update cycle. Should no Google Page Ranks be updated, prizes will be awarded solely on the increase in Technorati Authority.

Good luck to all!

Social Networking

I am still working on the template here, yeah can't do all blogs at once. I find that there's something missing from every post. Can you see it? I don't see the date at all. Is that normal?

Other than that the social networking that I am talking about will be twitter, digg, Stumble Upon, etc. Which I have signed up and currently using.

I will put one Page above so that everyone can stay connect with me easily. What do you think of that? I think about put the Page name as "Connect w/Sherry". Do you get what it means? Its a short form for "Connect with Sherry".

I am still struggling to find the cartridge for my printer. It seemed that the brand is not selling at many store. There's a store I found the brand but not the right one that I am using. I am looking for black colour cartridge.

Put weight on blogging

Well, I have been kind of busy attending to contests and also been busy to drop EC. Sorry if I have missed you. I must say that I have really put weight on blogging. Hmm... let see if this is right way to say it.

I mean that personally I have been putting on weight as I am spending more time on Internet than other stuff. Yeah lack of exercise is one thing because I am sitting down more. Yes I expect that my bum getting bigger too. LOL

Tell me if you are having the same like me. I think guy won't get as much as gals do. Do you feel that woman gained weight easily? I personally think YES!

I also see that I do put weight on my blogs too. Trying to maintain all at once but I know I am really handful now. I won a 2 months of web hosting plan P30. I really don't know what to do about it.

Work in Progress

As you can see that I am really working hard on changing the template, it took me hours to do it. I know some people can just do it in just minutes or half an hour?

Now I like my new template and I don't think I want to change this blog at the moment. Thanks to Angel who kept encourage me to change template. I done it! But won't be a success without the help from Asim with the Changing Your Template post.

I am still in learning process and work in progress for this and nameSherry blog. I think I need to do a baby step at a time. My mind and eyes will go squink if I do all at a time.

Oh the right bar you see the About and Disclosure Policy, I was sitting down all day figuring out how to do it. Yeah you really need to play around to know it. I do worry I messed it all up. If I did, you think there's a solution for it?
