Temporary Email address

Ever wonder how spammers got your email address? In many cases, YOU gave it to them. You go to a web site that asks you to register before you can enter or use their advanced data. Part of the registration is your email address. The owner of the web site has just harvested your address and can sell it to spammers.

Not every web site does this, but enough of them do.

Now you can protect yourself by using
Just make up an address on the fly- and use that to register. then go to . Once there, you can retrieve your registration email, and away you go. Whatever address you use is then deleted from their server, and any spam is just lost.

The site works on Donations, so I you like it, send them a few bucks

New version of AVG Anti-virus

Users of AVG 7.5 Free have been getting warnings that AVG 7.5 will be discontinued. This is true. It also appears from the warning, that you have to pay for the new version 8. This is NOT TRUE

You can download a Free version of AVG 8.0 by going to .

The new version has more features than the old, and is easier to use. Most notably, the new version contains an Anti-Spyware component. This is good because, in the last few years, spyware has become more of a problem than viruses.
