My friend recently lost her domain name as she forgot to renew it. Now there is no way she can get back the domain name. So how do you find out domain expiration date?
There are 3 simple ways:
By checking the public WHOIS database
Visit whois service here and enter your domain name. You can also use your domain registrar whois service to find out information.
By logging into your domain service providers account
Login to your domain registrar account and list expiring domain. Make sure you set all domains to auto renewal. Finally, make sure your credit card / payment information is upto date to avoid delays.
By using automated shell scripts for Linux /UNIX / Mac OS X
You can grab modified shell script that run as a cron job from your own Mac OS X / Unix computer. This script checks to see if a domain has expired. It can be run in interactive and batch mode, and provides facilities to alarm (email) if a domain is about to expire in advance.
Free Windows Software
If anyone has any information about free domain remainder utility for Windows XP / Vista, please add them in the comments.
Most domain register provides a series of reminder emails to you as the domain name approaches its expiry date. Make sure you whitelist those email address. If domain names are quite important register them for 5-10 years and lock all domain names.
I loved this game and it is now released as free download.

PDF (Portable Document Format ) format is already optimized and he de facto standard for document publishing on the internet and other media.
A PDF file is often a combination of vector graphics, text, and raster graphics. The basic types of content in a PDF are:
* text stored as such * vector graphics for illustrations and designs that consist of shapes and lines * raster graphics for photographs and other types of image
Because all graphics and other stuff PDF file is optimized. You can use program such as Winzip or 7-Zip (or command line utility winzip/zip) to package and compress a pdf file. My personal experience shows that you will not gain much benefit from compressing a PDF file as compression ratio is very small.
I'd be interested to hear if you have other software program to consider when compressing a PDF (remember it must provide a good compression).

If you are using Windows Vista Beta 2, RC1 and RC2, prepared for upgrade as set to expire. According to WindowsVista blog:
On 31 May 2007, all Customer Preview Program (CPP) pre-release versions of Windows Vista will expire. If you are running a pre-release version of Windows Vista (Beta 2, RC1 or RC2), you will begin to receive warning notifications about the upcoming expiration on 18 May. To avoid work disruption and loss of data, we strongly recommend that customers running any of these pre-release versions of Windows Vista migrate their PCs to the final version of Windows Vista prior to 31 May.
After 31 May 2007, customers who continue to use pre-release versions of Windows Vista will be able to log in for 2-hour sessions to retrieve data. After 2 hours of use, the PC will automatically reboot without providing the opportunity to save data. The opportunity to log in normally for these 2-hour sessions will only be available until 28 August 2007. It is strongly recommended that PC users running any of these pre-release versions of Windows Vista migrate their PCs to the final version of Windows Vista or another operating system prior to 31 May.
So you must upgrade if you like Windows Vista or if you just use PC for Internet browsing and office work you can try out new Ubuntu Linux ;)
