Watch this Video on you tube to see how the CAPTCHA
(affectionately known as craptcha) works.

The reason for this little device is to limit SPAM against the site.

On occasion it has been known to be a little troublesome but always gets there in the end.
be careful with the characters 1 and I as quite often the distortion for these characters can confuse your response. You may end up putting an "I" instead of the number "1"
The other most confused Character is the NUMBER "0" ZERO !
This too is quite often mistaken as the LETTER "O".
Luckily the CAPTCHA offers the option of showing you a new one if you cannot make out the correct letter or number.
You do not need to match the case of a character so in the case of "ABCDEF" you could just as easily use "abcdef" and the system will accepts it.

Is MSN Yahoo sweepstakes a legitimate give away?

Always check the URL when you click a link. Don't go for phishing mails ar other scams. They only try to get software on your computer and you never win a dime.
Consider mail from a person you don't know as spam. Yahoo, Google and other providers, only will send mil to explain changes in their service. All other mails are to be considered as spam.
Don't come back in a few days, telling your computer acts strange, after you clicked a link.

Do you get the money from pch ?

Hey Merry!

While does not have any articles about Publishers Clearing House, I did find this on

"Many people wonder whether Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes are legitimate. They are. The giveaways are closely watched by state regulatory commissions and legal agencies. The company is so famous and its sweepstakes so popular that the chances to win are extremely low. Furthermore, the entry process includes several pages of advertisements and offers. You can receive a high volume of mail if you overlook the opt-out options, so take the time to read through what you are agreeing to when entering.
Remember, even if PCH odds are as high as the lottery, some of their prizes are as big or bigger - and free to enter.

Publisher's Clearinghouse Sweepstakes Scam Warning:

Although Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes are legitimate, a number of scammers try to capitalize on the popularity of these sweepstakes by using the PCH name to lure in victims. For this reason, Publishers Clearing House has its own Consumer Alerts Section to warn people of scams that use its name. If you have received a win notice that claims to be from PCH, contact them directly to discover whether it is legitimate or not.

Many of the most commonly asked questions about PCH sweepstakes are answered in my Publishers Clearing House FAQ. "

Good luck!

Problems with online play on Call of Duty 4 for XBOX 360

there have been xbox live problems running rampant throught these past few weeks, so that most likely is the problem. hopefully that will get fixed in a few days by microsoft. another possible reason is that cod4 servers are generally unstable, especially on the ps3. IW has had problems for quite a while. I've heard that logging out then in for XBL solves the problem for the 360, but this is just a maybe. eventually (hopefully soon) IW will release a patch to combat these issues.
