I didn’t notice when I stopped receiving my Google Alerts. It’s one of those things you pass over until one day you’re all "why didn’t I get something on this?" I assumed my subscription had run out and I’d have to set them up again – which I found to be very annoying.

For eBay auction bidders tired of losing out to last-minute snipers whilst running errands (or whatever may pull your attention from the computer), VeriSign and eBay announced an agreement to deliver mobile alerts via SMS from VeriSign’s Intelligent Messaging Network (VIMN).
Many people get Google news alerts. They’re pretty simple. You pick your topic, say the timely subject of hurricanes. When hurricane stories appear, you get an email. You can pick the frequency upon which they appear and whether or not the alert scoura just the news or the entire web.
In order to determine which advertising and marketing efforts are effective you must have ways to measure the results of those efforts. Alerts and instant notifications can be instrumental in monitoring search engine position, trademarked terms, monitoring competitors and staying abreast of online occurrences.

At many organizations I doubt red lights flash with the sound of blaring sirens when backups fail in production environments, but I believe at every organization backups are one of the most critical IT functions. Of all backups, database backups, by most accounts, are considered the most critical. I know this is certainly true for me as a SQL Server DBA. I am sure at one point in all of our careers we were too busy to check all of our backups across all SQL Servers, with a million responsibilities on a daily basis. I know some of us were lucky and made it unscathed, while others were not so lucky with backup failures that caused extensive data loss and long downtimes. Now when IT Departments are forced to “do more with less,” it is time to put the necessary SQL Server Alerts in place for backup and restore operations in order to more easily monitor and streamline this critical process.
We will create a mobile stock quote tracker program in this article. The program retrieves the real time quotes of symbols specified by the user and displays the results in a user friendly format. The user can also specify the high and low thresholds for setting alerts. The View Stock Alerts screen displays the stocks that have crossed above the high threshold and stocks that have values below the low threshold.
The stock symbols selected by the user are stored in a simple MS Access database containing a single table “tblStk”
Here is the data structure of tblStk
Cashier’s Checks as Good as Cash? Watch out for cashier’s checks – treat them as a regular check and NOT instant access to cash. Make sure to wait 7-10 days for it to officially clear and call your back for verification of funds being truly cleared. Many scammers are using official looking “cashier’s checks” to pay for cars, or for products (and many write the check in an amount over the purchase amount, asking then for an immediate refund in the excess amount). The responsibility is usually on the consumer side, and not on the bank’s side. You’ll be liable for the deficiency in funds. Do not refund anything or spend any of the money in a cashier’s check until at least 7 days of deposit – and verify the funds before spending any of it.
