This Worked For Me – Get One Year Ad Free Subscription to Weather Undergound With This Code

December 16, 2014

Weather Underground is claimed to be the internet’s first online weather service.  It is a proprietary weather service that is based on actual cumulative community based weather data points.

I recently came across a code that I was able to use to get a one year ad free subscription to their service. I am also seeing where people were able to use the code to renew their subscription, as well. It is my thinking they have this code floating out there as a promotional gimmick. If you get this to work on your computer and you are also an Android user, you can download/install the Weather Underground App (from the Google Play Store), log in with your credentials, and you will also have an ad free experience on your Android device, as well.

You initially have to sign up for an account, for which you will be sent an email confirmation that will allow you to login to the account. It was after I logged into my account and went to the membership services that I was able to enter the code.  Hope this works for you as well; as, Weather Underground is a great weather service.

Here is exactly (via cut and paste) what I came across that worked for me:

Since we are having a storm in California, and I needed to renew my subscription:Surprisingly it still works.New Account

Terminate Known Malware Processes With RKill – Then Run Your Security Software

December 15, 2014

Did you ever wrestle with a Malware infection, think you have the PC cleaned; but, when you reboot the PC it comes back with a vengeance? This is where you need to have the utility by BleepingComputer.com, called RKill in your toolbox.

What RKill does is that it will attempt to terminate known malware processes.  It does not delete any files and only stops the malware processes from temporarily occurring, giving you that window of opportunity to run your security software (such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware). To learn, in detail, what RKill does and and what it doesn’t — click here

Below is what RKill looks like running, in a console screen. That console screen will continue to run until it RKill has finished. Once finished, the box will close and a log will be displayed showing all of the processes that were terminated by RKill and while RKill was running.

RKill

RKill just kills 32-bit and 64-bit malware processes and scans the registry for entries that would not allow you to run various legitimate programs. When scanning the Registry, Rkill will search for malicious Image File Execution Objects, DisallowRuns entries, executable hijacks, and policies that restrict your use of various Windows utilities. When changing Windows Registry entries it will create a backup of these entries and save them in the rkill folder on your desktop. Each registry backup will contain a time stamp so that the backups are not overwritten on subsequent runs of Rkill. For a list of changes in Rkill, please see the change log at the bottom of this post.

A Crowdsourced Online Dictionary Of Slang Words And Phrases

December 11, 2014

Following yesterday’s blog post, “KPC – “Keeping Parents Clueless” With Text Messaging“, a visitor to What’s On My PC pointed me in the direction of the Urban Dictionary that you may find to be helpful; and, if anything quite entertaining. Just beware, some definitions may be for your eyes only.

Urban Dictionary

Urban Dictionary is a crowdsourced online dictionary of slang words and phrases that was founded in 1999 as a parody of Dictionary.com by then-college freshman Aaron Peckham. At the start of 2014, the dictionary featured over seven million definitions, while 2,000 new daily entries were being added. In November 2014, the Advertise page of the website states that, on a monthly basis, Urban Dictionary averages 72 million impressions and 18 million unique readers. Anyone with either a Facebook or Gmail account can make a submission to the dictionary, and all entries are reviewed and rated by volunteer editors and site visitors… Source: Wikipedia

KPC – “Keeping Parents Clueless” With Text Messaging

December 10, 2014

For a 57 year old techie, my texting skills are pretty good compared to others in my age group; but, put me up against today’s teens and I am clearly no match (not even close). Part of the problem may be that I do not know the text message acronym system that is used by today’s kids to shorten (and hide) what they type. As a matter of fact, the first time I received a text “LOL = laughing out loud”, from my daughter, I was scratching my head.

I often stand back and wonder who determines the standard for any particular text message acronym and how does this become an accepted standard???  It is almost like the kids are born into this type of secretive messaging system that KPC – Keeps Parents Clueless. As a matter of fact, the kids are the teachers in this case and as student parents we need to know and learn this special language (to help keep our kids safe).

The point of this article is to let you know, especially if you are a parent, that these types of text communications can be closely related to those raging hormones and possibly to a hidden problem.

I happened across an Arizona based website, called azcentral, that had a piece (and video) on this very topic, and featured the “Top 28 Internet and text message acronyms every parent should know… (Source: azcentral)

I hope this list provides insight and makes us more sensitive in knowing what our kids are doing and saying (in coded words) to each other:

1. IWSN – I want sex now

2. GNOC – Get naked on camera

3. NIFOC – Naked in front of computer

4. PIR – Parent in room

5 CU46 – See you for sex

6. 53X – Sex

7. 9 – Parent watching

8. 99 – Parent gone

9. 1174′ – Party meeting place

10. THOT – That hoe over there

11. CID – Acid (the drug)

12. Broken – Hungover from alcohol

13. 420 – Marijuana

14. POS – Parent over shoulder

15. SUGARPIC – Suggestive or erotic photo

16. KOTL – Kiss on the lips

17. (L)MIRL – Let’s meet in real life

18. PRON – Porn

19. TDTM – Talk dirty to me

20. 8 – Oral sex

21. CD9 – Parents around/Code 9

22. IPN – I’m posting naked

23. LH6 – Let’s have sex

24. WTTP – Want to trade pictures?

25. DOC – Drug of choice

26. TWD – Texting while driving

27. GYPO – Get your pants off

28. KPC- Keeping parents clueless
