What is the difference between a cyber stalker and a cyber bully - The differences are minimal except the cyberstalker is irrationally obsessed with finding out more information about you which they then twist and manipulate to get what they want and the cyberbully is usually referred to when a child or teen is involved like the bully at school - which is no less distressing. Basically they are both under the headline of Online Harassment or Cyber Harassment and when this is repeated over and over to the victim it can be very distressing or annoying. The difference between a cyber stalker and a cyber bully Cyberstalkers I found an interesting article today from net for beginners which described a cyberstalker and from  my experience, this is spot on - I would go to describe this person just as this. Cyberstalking is a very serious form of online harassment. At one level, cyberstalking is much like cyberbullying, as it involves the sending of repeated annoying and unwelcome messages. But cyberstalking goes far beyond cyberbullying in terms of motivations and tactics. Cyberstalking involves a disturbed obsession with the [...]

As daybreak breaks Landmark and Everquest Next with layoffs players come together to show their support.  For those that don't know Landmark is an Online MMO Game which was being developed by Sony Online Entertainment and was the Everquest Next counterpart. Just last week Sony sold Sony Online Entertainment to Columbus Nova and who changed SOE's name to Daybreak.  Players were told, don't worry nothing will change, its business as usual - little did they know.  We heard from Dave Georgeson and Jeff Butler on the last LandMark Live show on Twitch who seemed confident and very excited to be continuing work - more so on Everquest Next than landmark they explained. With Landmark Open Beta coming very soon they were going to run with it while they worked on Everquest Next.   We weren't expecting this shocker today.. Daybreak breaks Landmark and Everquest Next with Layoffs Today Daybreak lays off several staff -  the numbers might even go into the 20's we are unsure at this time - but what we do know is that Daybreak have let go some of the most important people involved [...]

I found out recently that people just don't know all that you can do on Google Chrome, so I have put together this list of 5 tips you'll wish you knew for Google Chrome.  Only 5 tips here but if people do find these useful I will post some more great tips for Google Chrome. I love Google Chrome, since this web browser came out in 2008 I haven't gone back - and it just gets better and better. I do use other browsers but I always use Google Chrome for everyday use. Yes, Google Chrome has its problems like sometimes randomly crashing but this is usually due to running some conflicting software, which you can easily find out by type in the the address bar about:conflicts. Or problems such as "webpage not available" which we wrote about recently. So, now to the tips, these are all using Windows on a PC - of course some of these you may already know but hopefully there will be something here that will make you think, darn, I wish I knew that before!
