Reached Level 5 in 'Yahoo Answers'

Reached Level 5 in 'Yahoo Answers'
 
Just got the email from Yahoo Answers that I have reached 'Level 5' in their scoring system. You can check out my Yahoo Answers profile over here. The Level 5 does not have any per day limitations on the number of questions to answer and hence it would facilitate a more passionate helping for the fraternity.

Collaborative Computing

Collaborative Computing

A truly Team-Spirited work always pays good both in short and in the long run. This has been succinctly visible at least with the momentum gained by passionate opensource development. Around last week, one of my friend in Bangalore was asking me about any good hosting website which could manage his utility code that he wanted to share out as opensource so that more interested people could join in, share and collaborate. Though I just emailed him a couple of links, I later thought I would write it as a post for the benefit of others too.

Perhaps, if the reader knows more such hosted webservices, please feel free to share the same as comments for the benefit of others too.

Website Whois Database and Privacy Protection

Website Whois Database and Privacy Protection
 
Among one of the many ways that spammers harvest email addresses and contact info of persons is to use the Whois Database of websites. Whois lookup of any website is intended to provide three types of contacts like the following:
 
  1. Administrative Contact
  2. Technical Contact
  3. Billing Contact
Of late, spammers have also been known to run automated programs on whois databases to harvest contact info from these. A number of registrars have deployed little to more innovative schemes to thwart this attempt. I remember, GoDaddy, used to provide a CAPTCHA initially for any lookup.
 
I had to help a friend to register and start his website sometime last week. During the process, I had discovered a new webservice called PrivacyProtect, which helps to mask all the contact info. However, if you genuinely need to contact the domain owner, then you can go to PrivacyProtect website and use the domain name to contact them. And more, this service seems to be free. So, I would recommend that we all should try using this service to contain the malicious efforts of spammers.
