Bye, bye, Blogger!

Finally I decided to remove all the old posts from the blog hosted Blogger and link them to this one. However, I had a problem … Until January 2006, I had all the files hosted by Blogger and from January, I moved them to this blog. Then, in a futile attempt to retrieve the old posts as well and to clean them up from Blogger, I erased the Blog. This blog:  Remember, it is deleted …. really … 🙂 But, because  the files are still hosted by Blogger, the name is somehow … lost in the space.

Wasted Phishing campaign

I just received a PayPal Phishing which is pretty nice. Nothing special about it .. this time. The only problem is that they used a wrong link to the fake site: http://1171700305:20/webscr/index.php?update.user. The offending part is the port: 20. Here is what Firefox says: ” This address is restricted This address uses a network port which is normally used for purposes other than Web browsing. Firefox has canceled the request for your protection. “
