For all those who are using Windows, there is a trojan virus being passed around through Skype. It comes in the form of a chat message and looks like this:
lol is this your new profile pic? http://goo.gl/f8p21?profile=<skype_id>
Do not open it because it will affect all your skype contacts. If you have already opened it, use the following instructions to remove it:
Simply go into your Skype, select the Tools menu. When the dialog box opens, click Advanced and then finally at the bottom of that page click “Manage other programs’ access to Skype”. In there you will find an option with a random letter and number combination (example: D78.exe). Click on that and remove it.
There are an estimated 300 billion email messages sent each day and since there about 1.75 billion email users, that averages out to about 168 emails per user.
Now, I am sure there are some people who get that much email but the average user probably only receives that many per month.
So where is the rest of the email coming from? One word. Spam.

Nearly 2 weeks ago, we had our first ZOL Startup Challenge final where 3 talented winners were chosen from a very strong field. Since then the dust has settled and a number of people have made comments on the Challenge and process. I thought I’d give some thoughts as the idea originator, main sponsor and one of the four judges.
Congratulations to Team Mukelawho are the winners of the inaugural ZOL Startup Challenge which was held over the last month in Harare.
In what was a tight competition Mukela walked away with the USD5,000 in cash as well as USD5,000 in Internet services from ZOL. Sadomba-Mahari and SoftwareHouse were joint second walking away with $2,500 cash and the same amount in Internet services. Ribe Networks came in at fourth place and ZOL will be providing it with a range of Internet services. Funza, the fifth finalist did not present at the finals.
Mukela is passionate about ensuring every hotel in Africa is accessible to the intrepid traveler, at the click of a button. The company will provide one with the ability to research, plan and book accommodation for the next trip around the beautiful continent, regardless of whether one is looking to stay in a five-star resort or more meager housing.
Mukela and its partner hotels are committed to providing a reliable, world-class service, so that one can comfortably make decisions about African lodging.
From dealings with its clients, Softwarehouse often found that there was a general complaint about excessive internet charges and hardware theft. Research could not find a single product that effectively dealt with both of these issues, thus lead the creation of Hardware Inventory.
Hardware Inventory is a server based hardware and network monitoring tool for Microsoft Windows, it is designed to meet all the monitoring requirements of a small to medium business while complimenting the existing networking tools in place on large networks.
AvisPar is a group of programs used for the rapid creation and development of high quality 3D graphics and animation.
The package is built around very common Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and thus is multi-platform. This means that it can run on different operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac OSX and various Linux distributions.
