Easily manage multiple Gmail accounts

The Gmail Manager FireFox extention allows you to manage multiple Gmail accounts and receive new mail notifications. Displays your account details including unread messages, saved drafts, spam messages, labels with new mail, space used, and new mail snippets.

If you have multiple Gmail accounts then you know checking them can be a pain with signing in and signing out.

The Gmail Manager FireFox add-on lets you manage all your Gmail accounts from within your browser.

  • After installing it and configurating your accounts in the preferences, you will see Gmail Manager in the status bar in the bottom-right corner of the browser window.
  • Mouse over it for a pop-up listing your newest messages.
  • Click it to open Gmail in the new tab or right click it to select a different account.
  • Gmail Manager has other options you can tweak such as new email notifications, a numeric unread e-mail count, and will show “snippest” of mail as well as allowing you to add any WAV sound to alert you of new mail.

It does everthing you could want short of actually reading your e-mail for you.

What is link bait?

I went looking for the definition to link bait and as usual I found a Wikipedia article on it. As with everything related to a computer there are good and bad uses for link bait. I’m sure many web site owners would argue that it is essential to creating a successful web site or blog as it increases traffic. This is true but I also encourage anyone who is link baiting to be careful not to get too caught up and start creating link fodder. Getting people to your site is half of the battle. Keeping them there is the victory. In other words, don’t send them away as soon as they walk in the door.

The entire article involves much more then I have here but here are the types of link bait according to Wikipedia.

Wikipedia – Methods of website linking

Types of link bait:

Although there are no clear-cut subdivisions within link bait, many attempt to divide them into types of hooks. This is a short list of some of the most common approaches with brief descriptions:

  • Informational hooks – Provide information that a reader may find very useful. Some rare tips and tricks or any personal experience through which readers can benefit.
  • News hooks – Provide fresh information and obtain citations and links as the news spreads.
  • Humor hooks – Tell a funny story or a joke. A bizarre picture of your subject or mocking cartoons can also prove to be link bait.
  • Evil hooks – Saying something unpopular or mean may also yield a lot of attention. Writing about something that is not appealing about a product or a popular blogger. Provide strong reasons for it.
  • Tool hooks – Create some sort of tool that is useful enough that people link to it.
  • Widgets hooks – A badge or tool, that can be placed or embedded on other websites, with a link included.

CastleCops has gone offline for good

One of the original malware help sites has finally called it quits for ever. This is sad but in the end I think we say it coming for a while. The constant attacks on the site coupled with funding issues has finally become too much apparently.

Remember though that all the databases were copied/moved to System Lookup some time ago, so the resources are still available.

www.castlecops.com – Greetings Folks,

You have arrived at the CastleCops website, which is currently offline. It has been our pleasure to investigate online crime and volunteer with our virtual family to assist with your computer needs and make the Internet a safer place. Unfortunately, all things come to an end. Keep up the good fight folks, for the spirit of this community lies within each of us. We are empowered to improve the safety and security of the Internet in our own way. Let us feel blessed for the impact we made and the relationships created.

With respect to the server marathon, by March 17 2009 CastleCops will refund contributions made through PayPal that were specifically designated for servers. Unfortunately, server donations made via check cannot be returned because we do not have the addresses for the donating entity. Unless instructed otherwise, CastleCops will re-allocate these funds as a donation to the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC.org). This organization sponsored our hosting environment for approximately the past 2 years. Please contact us [cc at laudanski dot com] before March 17, 2009, if you would like a return of your server marathon donation. Otherwise, we would like to thank the ISC for their unfettered support.

We thank everyone in creating our unique footprint and memories in time.

Love, Best Wishes and Happy Holidays, CastleCops
