Cool Tool: Coral CDN

What is the Coral Content Distribution Network?

Coral is peer-to-peer content distribution network, comprised of a world-wide network of web proxies and nameservers. It allows a user to run a web site that offers high performance and meets huge demand, all for the price of a $50/month cable modem.

Publishing through Coral is as simple as appending a short string to the hostname of objects’ URLs; a peer-to-peer DNS layer transparently redirects browsers to participating caching proxies, which in turn cooperate to minimize load on the source web server. Sites that run Coral automatically replicate content as a side effect of users accessing it, improving its availability. Using modern peer-to-peer indexing techniques, Coral will efficiently find a cached object if it exists anywhere in the network, requiring that it use the origin server only to initially fetch the object once.

Scam alert – Carlton Press offshore-manual.com

I was ready to buy something from these Carlton Press guys but fortunately I found this post @ blankjb.iblog.com.

From personal experience, without any adequate DD, except for the fact that they seem to be an old site, i ordered a product from the site called Channel Island Banking Package. After ordering, a Dr. K.F.B. Weiss contacted me to make payment through e-gold. As soon as payment was completed and acknowledged all subsequent communication from this site stopped and i have been waiting ever since for the product or refund of payment.

Naughty software: Voodoo Blogger

Someone reported at the Syndk8 fora that Voodoo Blogger (voodooblogger.com) is spying on you. When you create a blog with it, it contacts their server and saves your blog’s info. Another member reports that after he requested a refund, he got a note that all his previously created blogs now belonged to them.

Amy why do you spy on our spam? You are naughty. Talking about Amy, she’s also launching a membership site, for the small price of $497 per month (marketersos.com/membership.htm). Also, she isn’t going to launch it unless 100 members are reached. Amy, are you asking people to pay you $49,700 per month to spy on them?
