Letter to God..!

There was a man who worked for the Post Office...whose job it was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses. One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God. He thought he should open it to see what it was about. The letter read,

Dear God,

I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had £100 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension check. Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me?

Sincerely, Edna

GoDaddy Universal Terms of Service Agreement Update

Go Daddy recently made changes to the Universal Terms of Service Agreement affecting Go Daddy® products and services. These are not major changes but still it does not hurt to know. As today Buying and Selling Domain Names has become a full fledged business for some..! So, the changes affected the following sections (And I would not say they are limited to these):

Section 1 (Overview)
Language was added to provide that changes or modifications to the Universal Terms of Service Agreement will be effective upon posting to the Go Daddy website. You will be able to tell when the Agreement has been updated by looking at the “Last Revised” date at the top of the Agreement.

Coral Player

There is a common habit in internet users to download videos. Most if them work perfectly fine on our video players. But sometimes, the video is encoded and would play on some particular video players only. There are many such video players and one of them is Coral Player. And this player is not genuine but a scam.

Coral Player is a scam, but not a virus. Basically the maker's create fake torrents - usually new release or popular movies. They claim to be avi files of the movie, and usually ~ 700mb or so.

However when you get the movie, all it is, is a trailer and tells you to go and download coral player. If you fall for it, it asks you to pay a small fee to use coral player but you gotta give them your credit card number, which they then charge a monthly fee of about $30 . But you never get any player to download, and the file that claims you need Coral Player to play it, isn't even a movie file at all - it's just a trailer with Coral Player ad.
