      Yahoo has added something VERY sneaky to your Yahoo account.

      There is now something called "Marketing Preferences". Basically it
      gives Yahoo permission to send you Spam through email, mail and
      phone, unless you check the boxes to "NO".

      The problem is that Yahoo has conveniently checked all the boxes
      as "Yes" for you!

      Everyone: you should go to your account page and change these
      setting!

      Go to http://groups.yahoo.com and sign in. Up at the top of the page
      click on "Account Info". It will ask you to confirm your password.

      Once in your account page, click on "Edit your marketing preferences"
      (right under where it lists your email addresses) and change all
      those "Yes" checked boxes to "No". That is, unless you LIKE Spam
      mail.

      I just checked my account and all of the spam options were all set to
      YES, even the snail-mail and phone marketing ones.

      You've been warned!

                  Yahoo isn't the only one getting into your computer.  I have used Ad-aware from lava soft.  Free download.   Welcome to Lavasoft   Kind of shocked me when I saw what was in my cookies. Anymore you need this along with antivirus and a good firewall.
                  Try Zonelabs for a free firewall.  Zone Labs, Internet security products, online safety, software, protection .  I have seen it block 50+ external attempts per hour on my computer.  There is more hacking out there than you might think.

                    Hi All,

                     

                    We are quite right to take spamming, hacking, cracking and computer security seriously.  I use Zone Alarm, Multi proxies and Anti virus software and my computer is reasonable secure.  However, we will never stop some who wants to get into our machine.  Multi national companies run the best and most expensive anti-cracking/hacking and anti virus software money can buy and still they get compromised.  So, what chance have we ‘little airplane builders’ got.   A firewall is a must if you use the Internet.  Down load Zone Alarm from www.zonelabs.com .  It is free and will stop the casual intruder.  Good free anti virus software can be found all over the Internet.  Do a search using Google (www.google.com) I believe Google is the best search engine there is around.  Remember, out of date anti virus software is of no use.  On average there are 7-10 new viruses a day being put out by email.  Those of us who have been with the news group for a while will remember the ‘Cricri in the jungle’ virus that was sent to us.  I traced the email and found the perpetrator; a Gerhard Null from Johannesburg.  He won’t be sending any more!   Multi proxies are a good way to improve your security.  Download the one from www.multiproxy.com .  It’s free.  Disable cookies and set your Internet security to high.  Some websites won’t like it but what the hell, I don’t like reformatting my hard drive.  If you are familiar with BIOS, disable the automatic writing to the hard drive boot sector.  This is where viruses are usually written to.  After you think you have made you computer bullet proof, visit http://www.security8.ch.vu/ and you will see a picture on your screen of your hard drive contents.  Don’t worry, they haven’t copied the contents of your hard drive, they just want you to purchase their software to stop others from doing just that.  A word of warning with this site, they sometimes have pop ups of an Adult nature.

                    A chat room should be quite simple to set up.  I use Mirc and I’ve had a look at it and made a chat room called Cricri.  There is no spamming or spyware.  To test it I will need someone in the UK who I can liase with to check it works.  Get in touch with me.  We can then meet there, say once a month, and chat about are Cricri.

                              Not too much to tell.  Has NOT flown yet.  I had originally intended to use a VW Tp IV in the Q but I accidentally discovered that the water-cooled iron block Rabbit motor actually weighed 7 lbs less.  I had them sitting next to each other on the shop floor and decided to weigh it just for fun.  It is canted over 70 degrees and has a belt style PSRU with a turbo from an EA-82 Subaru set up to maintain 17 PSIA.  The nice thing about the Rabbit motor is that they are one of the toughest motors around and make 30% more power than the Tp IV.  Work is stalled on the Q-2 at the moment so I can finish my Q-1 this summer.  Maybe someday I will take on a CriCri project but I think I am spoiled by the simplicity of the Q's.
