Cocktail Talk

Craig:   

Welcome to CN Consulting's "Cocktail Talk".

 

Cocktail Talk is a casual monthly newsletter intended to arm you with amusing bits and bytes of information on whats happening in the computer world. Topics sure to break the ice and capture an audience at many a social or business event.

 

Cocktail Talk is archived on www.cnci.us

 

Currently, on Cocktail Talk - HideMyAss! 

 

It's more than a little likely you've gotten rid of an email address that got too well known. Odds are you won't use your high school or college email address the rest of your life either. You change, people change, friends and needs change. 

 

Stalker ex-girl/boyfriends, Children's Highlights magazine advertisements, Viagra (for a friend), sometimes you just want a clean break, a fresh start.

 

What if you can't? What if you have a really real email address, like for work? Or maybe you don't want to give up the one you finally were able to get on Gmail or Yahoo. 

 

I'm fortunate in that I can rent a domain for peanuts, hide it's ownership, and set up any number of email accounts to accomplish the task at hand, and delete them just as easily. I can sneak around. But not everyone can.

 

Kids know how to sneak around, technologically speaking. If school blocks Facebook or porno or Disney they know how to get around it. Without a trace. They just go to a "proxy" website that isn't blocked, one like foxyproxy, and jump from there to Facebook or porno or Disney. They can sneak around the email address concern too, and so can you.

 

HideMyAss! does just that. Go to HideMyAss! and you can set up a free email address that lives for a day, week, month, or year. Use it when that website demands a valid email before letting you continue so it can bombard you with junk email. That address is going to self destruct whenever you've set it to. You can set up a bunch of them if you want, no charge.

 

Your HideMyAss! email comes with an inbox so you can read the emails sent to your bogus email address and sends you an email at your real address to tell you when mail arrives.You can't send or reply, but you can receive whatever you sign up for without giving up your real address.

 

HideMyAss! also has a web proxy, so you can browse Facebook or porno or Disney, just in case they're blocked at your work. 

 

AnonEmail, part of AnonyMouse, which also has a web proxy, does let you send eMail. Only send, and they get delivered sometime within 12 hours of when you send with a phoney-baloney name and everything. Send one to yourself if you're feeling lonely.

 

Now you can sneak around too, go to that website even if it's blocked, sign up for that using a bogus email address, and even send an eMail to that person.

 

 

Sneak around a little, or not, that's your call, and that's Cocktail Talk.

 

 

 

Thank you for reading,
