Is your Modem / Computer Safe during this monsoon ?

Is your Computer / Modem Safe ? Email us at to get more details.

Know about a product which I. T. Giants like Satyam & DAX bundle with their Internet Packs / Modems for quite some time now !

Have you had instances when your Modem silently died without you knowing the reason ?

Have you experienced Hard Disk Crashes, Failed Components etc. in the System where you couldn’t locate the source of the problem ?

What about your Cordless Phone / Answering Machines / EPABX Systems which crashed just like that ?

This happens as our Systems are exposed to Transients, Spikes, Surges & Lightning Attacks that leak thru’ the Telephone Line, even when the System’s power is off !

At least 3 to 4 times a day, Transients leak thru’ the Telephone Line producing a Spike, which can be potentially damaging to the Modem / Computer & even the Cordless Phone / Fax / Answering Machine / EPABX.

At Rs.499/- ‘MICROSAFE’ costs only a fraction of the price of the Computer that you will be protecting.

“MICROSAFE” would install itself between the telephone line and the precious equipment and it gives you complete protection from :

1. Spikes & Surges.
2. EMI – Electro Magnetic Interference.
3. ESI – Electro Static Interference.
4. Lightning Strikes – Both Direct & Induced.

Sounds Interesting ? Just Email to with complete shipping details and we shall send you the piece by VPP to your place at no extra charge. A Guaranteed Savings of Rs.75/- on this must have product ! You can also send us an email requesting “More Info on Microsafe” and we shall send you the same.

Aesop Meta Tag Spam

I got this strangely targeted spam today:

For FreshMeat:
Hi Steve,

Here’s an article I wrote that I think might work well in your

Please let me know if you decide to use it.

New Meta Tag Driving Targeted Traffic to Websites

By Shelley Lowery

The Aesop Meta Tag is a new standard that is dramatically
changing the way we search the Internet. This new Meta
Tag not only returns highly targeted search results, but it
also provides website owners with highly targeted traffic.

The concept is simple. The Aesop Meta Tag provides website
owners with a standardized method of classifying their web
pages into one of six categories. The Search Engine matches
the search terms with appropriate web pages according to
the classification. This enables the Search Engine to return
fast and relevant results for users — while at the same time,
driving highly targeted traffic to the websites.

When classifying a website, webmasters can categorize each
page within their website rather than just one general
classification. This allows for precise targeting not only for
specific search terms, but also for each page of a website.

The new classification categories are as follows:


The “Sales” classification signifies that the purpose of a web
page is to sell a product or service. This includes any web
page that plays a role in the sales process or leads to a sales
page. This classification will provide those selling a product or
service with highly targeted traffic, as the search results will
display a sales icon. This icon will immediately let the user
know that this particular page is selling a product or service.
If they’re in the market to buy, they’ll click through.

[snipped because who wants to read the rest of the thing?]

Anyway, here’s my reply. We’ll see what happens!

Thanks for your article Shelley. You obviously have taken a good look at FreshMeat, because you’ve hit right on the core of what I’m communicating to my readers.

I’m sure they’ll get a lot of pleasure out of your article.

Thanks again,
Steve Portigal

And yeah, I’m being sarcastic. FreshMeat is so completely unrelated it’s barely even funny. Check it out.

What’s the frequency, Kenneth?

New spam-attention-grabbing-technique using the ol’ subject line.

I got two messages today, one with the subject line “is everything ok, mrs. burlando” and another with the subject line “is everything ok, mrs. glanzman.” Some sort of prescription drug bypass service.


This is a pretty groovy disclaimer (found at the beginning of a piece of spam email I received):

Warning! This message is intended solely for individuals of legal age interested in sex with animals. Please delete it immediately if extreme explicit materials may be offensive for you or in your community or you are younger than 18 years..
