Skype became the victim of quantum physics rules

Isn't it beautiful? Windows Users Caused Skype Outage - TechCrunch page said.

Before skipping my page to the respectful link I placed above, listen to my explanation:

Quantum physics says that such things are quite really possible. For example, ball can jump without force being applied to it. Why? I can explain. As you know, everything consist of atoms. They are swinging around their respective positions. So, if all atoms of the ball accidentally go in the same direction, at the same moment of time -- ball will jump just by accident! However, there's nothing accident in the Universe, but let's skip it for simplicity.

Skype's outage is nothing else as natural consequence of quantum physics rules.

Because users like atoms. All users were reloading their machines after regular Windows update. Skype went out. Singularity. Apocalypse. Y2K.

What do you think, will Skype file a lawsuit against Microsoft?

Some unadvertised aspects of Skype activity

Major Skype outage that happened few days ago brought me to some thoughts on Skype behavior.

Interesting thing is that I noticed some problems with the Skype just before its outage. I use local Apache Server and Skype conflicts with it because possesses on the port 80th which is used by Apache too. So when I was trying to start my Apache, I failed until changed Apache's port to something different like 8080.

Has anyone had such problems with the Skype as I depicted above?

Then, AS far as I know, Skype works like distributed self-organized peer-to-peer network, P2P. Remember, the creators of Skype also are the authors of Kazaa.

Hackers from all over the world very careful about Skype, due to its "Black Magic Art" programming style, very advanced and complicated.

There’s some interesting articles on this subject, e.g. "Skype Trojan" [pdf] by Walter Sprenger, or "Skype Reads Your BIOS and Motherboard Serial Number".

So I won’t be surprised if this outage "software problem" will be later recognized as hacker attack to the / through the Skype which was blocked by Skype maintainers on time to prevent the crisis.

Unhappy end: the sad story about failed attempt of phentermine withdrawal from general use

Listen to me, Darling. Phentermine, our so loved #1 spam drug is obviously dangerous. Any mindful babe can check it easily via google (for lazy ones I'll post detailed explanation in next post).

Phentermine is addictive physically and psychologically, bringing serious side effects, causing disporia and personality changes. Many people have had had to go in to rehab to get off of this drug. Stop me! I've just promised you I'll prove this later, so I'll do (with some really nice pics!)

Let make us way back in time. The short story is European Commission Decision has tried to withdraw phentermine license. However, they failed because big old boys, some of the phentermine license holder appealed. It is understood darling: if You are Big Old Boy with Big Money you surely have all rights for spreading Your dangerous drug (dad, it is not dangerous indeed, please, please, please, please-please-please say it isn't harmful) over the world.

Spam by Monty Python :-)

Look at spam by mad guys from Monty Python:

Spami Yoga: another unexpected spam message

Today I've got another interesting spam message. Surely it is the first one that really doesn't annoy me because it is a bit unusual. The message just invites me to attend a Yoga seminar for people with loaded lifestyle. If someone is really interested, I even can give a link here.

And there's the main point: googling "yoga for business people" gives just 32 results. It is great area to investigate creation of trafficable site, I think!

No vi@9ra, just harmonizing your PC!

As I mentioned in the "The Idea of Anti Spam Business" post, it is possible to make money from spam emails by getting the relevant content idea from them. Of course, I mean finding out fresh and constructive ideas but not over-using annoying ones like phentermine advertisement.

Sometimes you must dig your spam email deeply to discover the really interesting idea among the crowd of old crap. For example, one of the last spam emails I've got today is trying to sell me the PC Harmonizer. There's not very much of search results on this topic: 91,800 at this monent. And only 4 results for exact "PC Harmonizer" phrase. So this area is pretty free to fill with content. At this moment Google knows only 2 pages about harmonizing your PC:

  1. PC Harmonizer - Reduces the damaging effects of radiation from your computer by 95-98%
  2. PC Harmonizer at the SCIO Norge webshop

And the first page just leads to second. So there's a lot of free money to earn!

The Idea of Anti Spam Business (changed)

The main idea of Anti Spam Business is very simple. It is all about creation popular and profitable websites. It is for people seeking for relevant ideas of optimized content sites. To get visitors you must create website which monitors popular problem and this is soft search engine optimization. You must know about what problems are popular to write about them.

But how to know about popular problems without wasting time in keywords analysis?

The solution is simple. You can get this knowledge easily from spam emails and blog comments (if you have got the blog already and it is being spammed). So you get topics from your spam and convert them to content sites.

This idea will work for everyone because every person receives a tons of spam emails and email spammers are pretty alert to monitor trends. It is not about viagra/phentermine but it is about fresh ideas for content sites.

The best part of it is you are getting profit from thing which annoys you!

The worst part is you'll love spam ;-)

Concept has changed. Go here to spamadol for continue.
