Check That Link Before You Click

If you are like me you get a lot of spam in the inbox even though, like me, you have filters in place. Most of it is just crap but there are some that are dangerous if you click on the included link. Here is an example posted by a friend on Facebook. The bottom line is to use the tools  we have available such as "whois" and do some research before you click away and for Goddess' sake don't give any personal information to one of these "mystery" links

My friend got an email offering some "work at home" offer containing the link:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com-sept-2012.us/ (Warning: Don't click on this link)

 This may look like something at MSNBC with some update information tagged to the domain but it is not, it is actually another website that who knows what is going to do to you or your system. The actual address(domain name) is actually the COM-SEPT-2012.US part and not the full string that includes the msnbc. This address is actually a website on some godaddy server somewhere owned by who knows who. (The registrar is a James Richardson in Burbank????)

You need to watch for this type of misdirection in link addresses. The real domain is going to be the last two parts on the link (before any /’s), …xxx.nnn, in this case it is the COM-SEPT-2012.US. If you go to network solutions web site,

 http://www.networksolutions.com/whois 

and plug the domain name in the Search all WHOIS Records you will get info on the person or company that registered the domain. You should also note that the registrant may not have given his or her real name.

Just pay attention and don't just click away before you know where it will take you.

Whether in combat training, board rooms or classrooms, gaming can add much to our daily lives. We can meet new people and increase our knowledge and abilities as we enjoy a change of pace from our daily routines. The following article has video game recommendations and tricks that you can apply today.

Be sure to verify a game's rating prior to letting kids play. Some games contain violent or inappropriate content that is not intended for anyone under 18. Do not let your children play these games or watch while you play. If a game is violent, it can have negative affects on sleep and behavior of young kids.

Start out as a rookie when playing sports games. These games can be very tricky and intricate, so you will want to learn as much as you can before increasing the toughness. After playing for a few weeks, you can begin to make it more challenging by increasing the level of difficulty.

Keep your graphic drivers up to date. When gaming on the computer, it is smart to make sure your picture is sharp and clear. You should update your drivers to ensure this. To find out what graphic drivers your computer has installed, open your device manager, then click update driver.

Game store employees are a great resource when it comes to learning about new games. A lot of people like different kinds of computer games, you should look to branch out. The employee should be able to give you a few ideas of what games to buy.

Look for sales if you want to obtain inexpensive games that your kids will enjoy. Many video stores aren't doing well. If you look, you might find a video store that is going to close soon and find some fantastic deals on games and accessories. While the discs should be in working condition, a quick clean works wonders.

With a game that's fairly popular it can be tempting to buy everything out there for it like expansions and upgrades right when you begin playing. This can be expensive! Try maintaining discipline. Wait until you have played through the game before purchasing additional content.

If you have children, ensure that you're limiting the amount of online game play time your children have. Try not to let your kids play for over two hours every day since it can rearrange their priorities and strain their hands and eyes.

The PS2 is 12 years old and kind of outdated, but the one thing it has going for it is that it is very cheap. The games for this system are about half the prices of Xbox and PS3 games. There are also many more games available.

All games have ratings thanks to the ESRB. Games are appropriate for ages 3 and older if they receive an EC or Early Childhood rating. If your children are six and older, a rating of E is appropriate. A rating of E+10 is for people older than 10 years old. If your game is rated T, it is suggested that you be 13 or older to play it. "M" (mature) rated games are for people who are at least 17 years old. AO indicates the game is just for adults and RP signifies "Rating Pending."

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

With the right suggestions and tricks at your fingertips, you never have to feel like a video gaming novice again. Keep this piece close so that you can easily navigate the gaming world. Even if you are an experienced gamer, you can use recommendations from the above article to enhance your gaming experience.

Playing online gaming can be a very fun activity and it is an activity that people from all around the world enjoy. The information in this article will help you navigate the world of video games without buying a poor game, or one that isn't age-appropriate.

You should try renting a game before you buy it. You will not be able to return a game you bought once you opened it. When you rent computer games, you can check them out without having to make costly mistakes.

Think about what age your kids have to be before they can play games rated M, or mature. Generally, you can set up your ps3 so that kids can't play games that are too mature, although computers are a little harder to work with. It is important to understand how to protect your children.

Trade games with people you know. These games cost a lot and you probably want to spend money on other things sometimes. Chat with friends to find out if you can swap games with them, and everyone can play a new game for free.

As you buy a game, make certain that you get warranty or insurance protection. You will feel secure in the knowledge that you can just replace it without hassle. A console is likely to run into problems eventually. Take precautions.

When you get stuck in a game, you can always look for a cheat code to help you get past the obstacle. There are fans all over who may have gotten stuck at the point you are on and many of them have probably shared the way to finish.

Decide how old younger members of your household should be before being allowed to play games that are rated M for mature. A lot of different video gaming systems can be set so kids cannot play games meant for adults. Keep an eye on what you're kid is doing.

Saving is important, even in auto-save games. Until you feel that you know how the game works, this is the best option. Refrain from overwriting your games too often, as this can have its disadvantages. Having more than one save allows you to rewind without starting over.

When someone wants to purchase a online game wii, there are plenty of choices. Be sure to research and read reviews before deciding which system you prefer. It is important to know if the company carries a majority of titles that your family will enjoy. When you have chosen a system, look at how much memory this system has. There are many download options for most games and this content can fill a hard drive quickly. To make sure, buy a system that has enough memory.

Reserve games that are high in demand to ensure that you will get a copy. You may get special bonuses when ordering early. The bonuses could be some special features, outfits, or anything that could help you when it comes to playing. The only way you can get them is by ordering early.

Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

You can enjoy online games just for fun, or you can get a world of education and enrichment from them. Hopefully you have learned all you need to understand about computer games from this article.
