Since yesterday I have seen this hoax once again being passed around Facebook. The gist is this: If you should ever be forced by a robber to withdraw money from an ATM, you can notify the police by entering your PIN in reverse.

The machine will still give you the money you requested, but unknown to the robber, the police will be immediately dispatched to help you. This information was […] Read more »

If anyone uses a service to do this like TwitterFeed or something similar, feel free to post in the comments below and let me know your feelings about their service. I for one don’t like to rely on third party services unless it is absolutely necessary.

What’s up, you deleted me from Facebook?

First let me just say that if I deleted you as a friend on Facebook, it was not because I don’t like you or I think you are mean or you smell or well you get the idea. Today, following in the footsteps of Michael Hyatt, I started on a new plan to focus my time and energy and to bring the time I spend on the internet under control. Now if you know me, you know I spend a great deal of my time on the internet. I don’t just surf the web and waste away my time frivolously, […] Read more »
