  • Couple helpful Items from Internet

    These maybe a good ideas, I think so.

    Adding ICE to your cell phone is a "great idea", is catching on and it is a very simple, yet important method of contact for you or a loved one in case of an emergency.
    As cell phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is program the number of a contact person or persons and store the name as "ICE".
    The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when they went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients but they didn't know which numbers to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name to file "next of kin" under.
    Following a disaster in London, The East Anglian Ambulance Service has launched a national "In case of Emergency (ICE)" campaign. The idea is that you store the word "ICE " in your mobile phone address book, and with it enter the number of the person you would want to be contacted "In Case of Emergency ".

    In an emergency situation, Emergency Services personnel and hospital staff would then be able to quickly contact your next of kin, by simply dialing the number programmed under "ICE".
    Please forward this. It won't take too many "forwards" before everybody will know about this. It really could save your life or put a loved one's mind at rest.
    For more than one contact name simply enter: ICE1, ICE2, ICE3 etc.

    A great idea that will make a difference!
    Protect Your Addresses
    I received this tip from a very kind newsletter reader and I thought it would be perfect to share with the rest of you. It makes a lot of sense and it's so simple to do, so listen up! Okay, so we all know that when your e-mail is infected with a virus, it goes straight to your address book. The virus looks for the addresses you have saved and it starts to send itself off to everyone listed. The virus then, of course, infects all of those people as well. So, how can we stop this from happening? Well, here's an idea on where to start.
    Open your address book and go to New Contact, just like you would if you really were adding a new friend to your list. For the name, simply type in the letter A. Then for the e-mail address, type in "[email protected]" (Or however you want to do it. Just make sure it's in an e-mail address format). Since you used the letter A, it will be the first entry to be listed in your address book, which is where the virus would start when sending itself off to all your friends. Now, here's the catch. Since the e-mail address you entered is not valid, the message the virus sends will be undeliverable. Therefore, it will not be able to go any further to anyone else in your address book.
    There's also another advantage to this. If the first e-mail cannot be delivered successfully, you will receive an e-mail yourself notifying you of the undeliverable mail. This will warn you right away that you are infected with a virus and you can do what you need to do to get rid of it (run your virus scan and fix it!) Now, go and tell all your friends to do this as well. If everyone does, none of you will ever be infected again! Pretty genius, isn't it?!

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

      The first of these sounds like a very good idea, Chuck. Unfortunately the second doesn't work. The idea has been around for a while - see here for why it doesn't work..
