Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Charities to watch out for.

Because there has been a huge disaster in Japan last night, I felt I needed to put this tip on what to watch out for. Since this happened, there have people starting up "charities" and spamming email, Facebook, and various websites. Here are some tips on what to watch out for:

-Misspellings. No good charity will not use spell checking. It doesn't matter what it says, just ignore these.

-Domains. Please watch were you are sending money. If you send money via PayPal to helpjapan@reddcoss.org (notice the double "d"), it will not being going to the Red Cross.

-Charity watchdog. Please make sure you are checking out any new charities, before sending them money. Charity Watchdog is a great site which will tell you the history of a charity as well as how they spend their money. www.charitywatch.org

If you aren't sure what to do, just donate to the Red Cross or Doctors Without Borders, and you can rest assured these are good charities who have been around for a while.

samsung 67 dlp tv

If you can still see this black line when the set is off, then a screen has become loose from the mounting bracket inside of the set. If not and you can only see this black line when the set is on,then there are two possibilities. One, the Light Tunnel has failed and two, some felt material might have become loose inside of the Light Box.
