Email spam and viruses

Recently I have read and a news announcement that there was revealed that there is possibilitie to get a spam letter already with a viruse attacht to it. I think this is already accouple of days old news.
Basicaly spam letters is trying to sell something to its readers, for example, questionable pharmaceutical products. If spam email is opened that might be the reason why next day email inbox just flooded with such letters. Why not to try to sell you something else if you have opened one spam letter. So this way it is possible to become a target for various spamers.
Now, why to send to letters, one with spam and another one with viruse if it is possible to do these things in one letter.
Reading spam letters might cause some serious problems. I guess there is no need to explain how viruses might be dangerous.
Accourding to various web sources the global ratio of spam in email traffic from bad sources was 76.1 per cent and it is higer numbers that some time before.

Continueing about internet television Joost

Various web sources writes that Joost has already signed broad programming partnership deals with Viacom and CBS as well as independent producers.
Maybe these events speaks about that Joost is going to be open for everyone who would like to watch TV online. The combination of TV internet and advertising might be very profitbale for its owners. I guess there would be some chances to adress advertisments corresponding viewers interests as this program is based on P2P network.

In short, according to various web sites, Joost, the IPTV company founded by the people that launched Skype, has signed up 31 advertisers worldwide ahead of the launch of its free internet TV service. So is it worth to expect that soon there will not be need to get an invitation to watch this television online.

The Magic of Conferences

When I hear somebody saying conference the first association which comes to my mind is boring.
But it isn't! People who loves their job or/and have a lot of experience bring a lot of interesting ideas and thougts to share. And I love atmosphere of confrences. I find it collegial, friendly and even romantic a little bit. And the small presents from organizers make you smiling.
When I am in a conference I feel I am a part of something really important. And I'm proud of myself. Even if I am only a participant, not speaker. And I get an inspiration to do something. For example, to try to do my best with thesis of master, or at least to spend a nice afternoon playing with my little son outside :)
However, the most useful thing in conferences is a possibility to meet a right person while drinking coffee or wine with some sweeties. The person who will become your employee or employer, or a partner to make a project. Or it can be a possibility to shake hand of somebody you like and respect very much: a politician, a scientist, a writer..

Using Technorati

Technorati Profile

Passwords and security

Everyday we use more and more services on the web and not only, that are protected with passwords. But are these passwords really secure, can we trust them. published a quite interesting article about organizations and there concerned about secure passwords. It seems that nearly three-quarters of IT professionals believe password security has become a bigger problem for companies over the last twelve months, according to a new survey.

According to
"Executives are increasingly concerned with the misuse of passwords amongst colleagues and the growing danger of internal and external threats to the network."

So probablly this is not the only things to worie about. Viruses and spyware is also more and more often
announced to cause big damages.

In short it is important to be very careful and to be sure that password is enterend in the right place.

Blog updates

Today is the day when some blog updates were made. Now everyone is welcome to try a sudoku game. You may find this game a bit below, on the right side of the blog.

Sudoku requires no calculation or arithmetic skills. It is essentially a game of placing numbers in squares, using very simple rules of logic and deduction. It can be played by children and adults and the rules are simple to learn.

Sudoku Objective

The objective of the game is to fill all the blank squares in a game with the correct numbers. There are three very simple constraints to follow. In a 9 by 9 square Sudoku game:

  • Every row of 9 numbers must include all digits 1 through 9 in any order
  • Every column of 9 numbers must include all digits 1 through 9 in any order
  • Every 3 by 3 subsection of the 9 by 9 square must include all digits 1 through 9

Similarly, smaller Sudoku puzzles, such as the 4x4 puzzle, must have the numerals 1 through 4 in each row, column and subsection. Larger Sudoku games (16 by 16) must have numerals 1 through 16 in each row, column and region. The principles are the same whatever the size of the game.

Every Sudoku games begins with a number of squares already filled in, and the difficulty of each game is largely a function of how many squares are filled in. The more squares that are known, the easier it is to figure out which numbers go in the open squares. As you fill in squares correctly, options for the remaining squares are narrowed and it becomes easier to fill them in. The Sudoku games on let you check your progress as you go, to help prevent going down a wrong path.

One more update

It is that from now everyone will be able to see recent blog comments, on the right side of the blog, no need to check again every post, story.

That's it for this time :)


Sudoku (jap. 数独 = sūdoku) – galvosūkiai, kuriuose reikia surasti ir įrašyti skaitmenis nuo 1 iki 9 taip, kad skaitmenys nesikartotų eilutėse, stulpeliuose bei paryškintuose 9 langelių (3×3) kvadratuose. Dažniausiai sudoku sprendžiami 9 eilučių ir stulpelių galvosūkiai, kuriuose įrašyta keletas pradinių skaitmenų. Sudoku paplito Japonijoje 1986 metais, o 2005 metais pasidarė populiarūs kitose šalyse.

Žodis Sudoku, kilęs iš japonų kalbos, reiškia „vienintelis skaičius“. Pagal susitarimą galvosūkiuose naudojami skaitmenys, tačiau matematiniai ryšiai čia nėra svarbūs, taigi galimi galvosūkio variantai naudojant kitus simbolius, pavyzdžiui, abėcėlės raides ar spalvas.

Priklausomai nuo pradinių įrašytų skaitmenų, galvosūkiai gali būti skirstomi pagal sudėtingumą.

Internet TV

While we are not painting, coloring Easter eggs or not doing any homeworks, we can read some news about internet television.

Joost - Internet TV

Joost is a new way of watching TV on the internet, which uses new and established technologies to provide the best of both the internet and TV worlds. It allows searching for programmes and channels, for example, as well as social features like chat. There are many more new features to come in future Joost releases.

The program is based on P2PTV technology and is expected to deliver near-TV resolution images. It turns a PC into an instant on-demand TV without any need for additional set top box.

Near future is closer

Solar batteries

Near future can show us new way to charge our batteries, just leave them out in the sun. A new European Union (EU) funded research project has designed a flexible polymer battery which recharges when exposed to light.

New battery is slim enough to use it even in mobile phones, flat smart cards. Does it mean that mobile phones could be charged just left out in the sun?

The use of such a battery might be very important, because of still groving demand on portable devices with self-rechargeable power supplies. So we have to wait and see then these solar batteries will hit shops..

The research was published in Solar Energy journal.
