TeamViewer finally notified me of suspicious log in attempt and I enabled two factor authentication

Look like finally I received message from TeamViewer that my account have suspicious log in attempt from a different location or devices. This is over a month ago when I got hacked, my teamviewer account was hacked to be exact and the hacker login into all my connected devices computer and tried to steal download data and information, especially all my Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin wallet. Luckily I found out about it at 2AM in the morning and had to stayed up for almost 1/2 an hour to transfer all my Bitcoin, Litecoin and Dogecoin to new offline wallet then change all Teamviewer accoutn password. Today I finally enabled two factors authentication, and appears to be working, so even if the hacker have my password, they will not be able to login with my 2nd authentication which I have with me all the time and most likely cannot be replicated.

Shopkick scam / fraud

I was introduce to Shopkick beginning of this year and have been using until today.

Let me give you a brief summary of what Shopkick is. Shopkick is a mobile app that you go to the selected store and scan the barcode of item listed. You can say it’s like a scavenger hunt. once you scan, it will give you points. Enough points will reward you a giftcard to your select stores. This is great if you have a kids or on a hot summer day. Make money while keeping you cool without spending money on AC.

Recently I update my apps and got a message stated that I was ban from shopkick. I emailed them with a statement that I have follow the rules and in no shape or form that I have violate their TOS. Their reply seems to indicate that I been using the barcode a website to get point which this is probably their excuses to ban me. I have no intention to fraud them in any way. Their reply also stated that they cannot enable an account once it’s been ban but suggest to still use their app to save money when buying merchandise. This is nonsense. If you get ban from using their app to make money, why would you want to continue using it to make money for them?

It’s not like I’m profiting 1000s of dollar in a short amount of time from them. A small amount of pocket change totaling less than 100 dollars when I started. I look it as an enjoyment to spend time and doing something meaningful with families.

Not to mention, earlier this year, my nephew had the same situation. Once in a full moon he goes to the store and use shopkick to scan for items. One day he turn it on to scan at the store and there the pop up “too bad” banner come up. You are banned!.

Shopkick is another scam / fraud. Once you reach to certain amount, they will flag you and ban you for nonsense reason. Truly, you scan item to get points while they get advertisement money. You earn too much points they will ban you in an instant. No question ask.

Children minor age 15 younger don’t need US Passport to travel to Canada by Land or Sea

According to the official Canadian website above. Children age 15 and younger do not need a US Passport to travel to Canada by land or by sea. A US birth certificate is good enough when traveling with both parents, if both parents are not present and then need a consent letter from the parents authorize the child to travel with someone in particular off course like aunt uncle, hopefully not friends or stranger 🙂

 

Bitcoin Litecoin is getting warmer doc! what price will Bitcoin hit this Christmas 2015?

It’s mid June 2015 almost summer time 2015. Bitcoin been stabilized, some may say it’s just a sitting duck. The price of Bitcoin isn’t going anywhere except up a little bit then down, then up then down. Perfect for day trading actually. Wait for it to down a little like 235 then buy, then wait for it to go up 240 or so then sell. Repeat the process. At least Bitcoin isn’t going down further than what it is today hovering around 230s ish.

Now Litecoin been making headline. Litecoin price looks pretty good! it’s up quite a bit along with Bitcoin and Dogecoin, but higher in %.  There are news on Litecoin similar to Bitcoin when I searched on google news. Versus Dogecoin when I search for news on Google News I don’t see any. So Litecoin might be the 2nd top cryptocoins to invest, and then Dogecoin probably in third place. Other cryptocoins are probably so scam coins, up one day, down one day for reasons of scamming so call, pump then dump.

My prediction for Christmas? the truth is, it could be $1, it could be $1000. However if you asked me, I think by Christmas 2015 it will be between $400 to $500. However I also have that feeling it will be up but around $300 or so.

The price of Bitcoin is really good for day trading actually.

Dorney Park the worst ride of all is the Steel Force also have problems getting stuck

The worst ride of all at Dorney Park is the Steel Force roller coaster. This ride always have problem getting stuck. Today was another example, June 13th 2015 this rider so call “Steel Force” got stuck again, and this is not the first time, very very frequent! The only good thing about this is that no one got hurt, but it did get stuck midway somewhere and took one hour or more every time to get it unstuck and imagine there are people especially kids getting stuck up there with the heat wave. Not to mention people are waiting inline long line for the ride and have to wait with no news update what so ever.

Someone really need to look into suing Dorney Park and get  Dorney Park to fix this ride so call “Steel Force” before disaster happen. Do not let fatality happen Dorney Park, fix this ride before you’re in trouble. Your preventive maintenance isn’t working apparently, you need to get it fix bottom line.

How to fix computer does not detect your GPU Video card?

Wait! don’t throw that GPU video card away or assume it’s dead, not working. Try this first.

Reset your motherboard CMOS, clear it by moving the jumper cable pin. You should have a manual for your motherboard if you don’t see the CMOS battery or jumper to clear it. You can look up the manual by google search your mother board model # usually printed on the mother board.

After you reset your motherboard cmos (DO THIS WHILE THE VIDEO CARD IS REMOVED and POWER IS UNPLUGGED). Place the GPU video card back and turn the computer on. Your computer should detect it. If it doesn’t then yeah there might be other issue.
