    phishing scam your google account 新型谷歌账号盗取伎俩

    最近出现了一种新型的企图盗取谷歌账号的欺诈手段, 比QQ和微信的各种手法更加隐蔽,更加恶毒. 大伙看仔细了.

    貌似华人所为, 出现了江苏徐州字样.

    我亲爱的华人同胞们呀,有这些聪明才智,怎么就不用到正道上呢? 为什么呢?

    好了, 请看这个小伎俩的详细介绍, 谨防上当受骗.


    1) 冒充 google 官方邮件发信, 告诉你有人企图登录你的邮箱. 骗取你的信任.

    no-reply , 或者类似别名.

    google给出了警告信息, 但是不够醒目:
    This message may not have been sent by: Account@gmail.com  Learn more  Report phishing

    2) 告诉你时间, IP 和 地点. 进一步骗取你的信任.

    Friday, June 13, 2014 2:30:44 PM UTC
    IP Address: 122.192.185.201
    Location: Xuzhou, Jiangsu, China

    3) 显示一个 google 风格的按钮,让你重设密码, 链接到骗子自己的网站.
    链接地址里面有 google 字样, 以假乱真.
    骗子的网站里面要求你输入用户名,密码,电话等等各种保密安全信息.

    [Reset password] , URL: http://mail.google.ormeco.com.ph/

    4) 落款还显示了google 公司地址等一堆真实的官方信息. 再进一步骗取你的信任.


    * 识破骗局 *
    我就奇怪了, 重设密码, 为啥还要再次输入用户名? google自己肯定知道我的用户名的邮件地址.

    Seattle to Victoria trip 西雅图到维多利亚的旅行线路

    应新同事的邀请,写一篇文章,介绍西雅图到维多利亚的旅行线路.

    从西雅图到维多利亚(加拿大)有4条线路,各有优劣。

    (一)
    5号路北上,开车两小时,到 Anacortes 小镇, 搭乘华盛顿州轮渡 到悉尼市,然后开车南下到维多利亚, 坐船3小时, 开车15分钟.
    步行者: $19,
    连车带司机: $68,
    停车费: 每天$10,

    Jun 15, 2014 - Sep 20, 2014

    Anacortes, Sidney B.C.
    8:25  ,    11:05
    2:50  ,     5:00

    Sidney B.C. Anacortes
    Noon ,      2:10
    5:55 ,      8:30

    这条线是我走的最多的一条.
    可以停车在Anacortes码头, 节省船票, 早点上船,抢占联排椅子,可以一直躺着睡觉,跟火车卧铺差不多了.

    2014-06-20 :

    关于停车: 1,2,3号停车场经常会爆满. 私人停车场稍微便宜一些, $7,$8一天.
    山坡上的备用停车场(overflow parking)很大,总有空位,也多走不了几步路.
    从2号停车场南端入口,可以开上去. 还有一条trail小石子路, 从 2号停车场北端入口走上走下, 下了船,除了海关,走一会儿迎面就可以看见.

    停车收费: 记住你的停车位号码, 按照停车时长, 在入口电子收费器 交钱, 可以用信用卡, 收据随身带上, 方便回来找车, 也方便以后超时补缴费.

    卫星地图:
    https://www.google.com/maps/place/Anacortes+Ferry+Terminal/@48.50355,-122.6781428,1148m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x5485790ea2748ed5:0x5c9a071494b5411f


    (二)
    从西雅图市中心,一直向东,开车3小时,到达 天使港 Port Angeles 小镇. 搭乘黑球公司的私营轮渡,航行90分钟,到达维多利亚.
    船上可以带狗金乘客舱.

    镇上的西餐: Next door. 中餐: Tendy's Garden 自助餐, 顶饱.

    缺点:船上停车位特别拥挤, 从 西雅图 到 Bainbridge Island,需要摆渡一次,等船浪费时间.

    票价和时刻表:
    Victoria: 10:30am, 4pm
    Port Angeles: 8:20am, 2pm

    Vehicle & Driver $63, Passenger $19

    (三)
    5号路一直向北,开车3小时,过了美加边境,和平门海关,再到Tsawwassen 小镇搭船,夏天每小时一班,航行90分钟.
    连人带车 $72,
    步行者: $17

    缺点是海关排队时间有时候比较久.
    优点是BC省轮渡公司的班次特别多,从早上7点,到晚上10点. 停车位宽敞. 船上设备精良.

    Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal Parking, 码头过夜停车信息:

    1.  BC Ferries : $16 / day

    2. Park & go,
    1406 Tsawwassen Drive
    Delta, B.C. V4M 4G2
    (604) 943-9991

    For parking near Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, there is a good option available. The Tsawwassen Ferry Park N' Go is a large lot located at the end of the causeway before the ferry terminal entrance. This parking lot is much larger and the rate is a flat CAD 10/24 hours. Additional hours are charged at CAD 1/hour, up to the daily maximum of CAD 10. A complimentary shuttle runs between their parking lot and the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal front entrance.

    (四)
    Clipper 快艇.  不能开车. 从西雅图市中心,到维多利亚市中心, 两小时40分钟.
    单程票价每人$100, 往返$180, 提前一周预订,往返大约$120.

    优点是快.
    缺点是贵, 容易晕船的朋友,需要经常走到二层甲板上吹冷风.

    *******

    从维多利亚到温哥华,有2条线路。

    Swartz Bay 搭船, 车 $55, 人 $17.

    奶磨市 搭船,到温哥华。

    *******

    西雅图到温哥华,只有一条线路,就是5号路一直北上。

    BC / Seattle border wait time, 海关等待时间查询:
    • Go Canada : http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/bwt-taf/menu-eng.html
    • Go US: http://bwt.cbp.gov/?com=1&pas=1&ped=1&plist=3004

    *******

    维多利亚 的游玩推荐:

    我老婆认为室内最好的景观是出海看鲸鱼. 许多外地人喜欢去宝翠花园, 去一次就够了, 毕竟是人工的.

    东边

    近处, 开车一小时,有 East Sooke 公园, 维多利亚该有的景色,这里都有了.
    海滩,海景,山崖,草地,树林,山坡. 好像没有湖泊.

    远一点, 继续沿着14号公路,顺着欢徳福卡海峡向东,有 French beach, China beach, Mystic beach.
    China beach 有著名的黑沙滩.
    French beach 都是粗石子.
    Make Mystic Beach a perfect day trip to Victoria.
    If you want to catch a taste of Vancouver Island’s wild West Coast,
    but don’t have the time to make the trip to Tofino,
    head out on West Coast Road past Sooke to hidden Mystic Beach in Juan de Fuca Provincial Park.

    走到头,是欢徳福卡海峡和太平洋交汇的小镇 Renfrew, 住一天也不错. 尽头有个饭馆,能吃饱,宽敞温馨,有海景.  这里还有必须带小孩探索的 Botanical Beach, 著名的 tide pool, 没赶上退潮而留下的各种小动物.

    北边.

    近处有 Duncan市, 和 Cowichan lake 大湖周边的一些小镇子, 都非常悠闲安宁. 比如: honeymoon bay, 听着就有诗意.
    可以在 B & B (bed and breakfast) 或者 motel 住一两天.

    这一带最令人兴奋的游乐项目就是淡水漂流, Cowichan river. 全世界排名前十位,鄙人评选的.
    水深平均约半米,偶尔会有激流冲击的深潭. 带上充气轮胎,气床,只要是能浮起来的东西 就行. 再专门带上一个冰箱,放满啤酒和大麻,一边漂,一边喝,一边吸,总共漂大约三个小时,缓缓而下,乐不思蜀.

    安全提示: 下游有悬崖激流, 早几百米就开始有多处警告牌,赶紧上岸,小命要紧.

    更详细的漂流介绍, 可以参考 开吻 的博客. 链接在右上角.


    温哥华岛:

    西边: Tofino 太平洋西海岸国家公园: 听涛观海浪, 还有十三公里长的细沙粒沙滩, 大片温带雨林, 4号公路,路过几个巨大的湖泊.

    北边: Parksville 和 Qualicum Beach. 大片的浅水温暖沙滩.

    最北边, 开车550公里, 小镇port hardy, 只有5000人, 规模却很大, 还有著名的野生黑熊公园 Cape Scott.
    北端西头, 有小镇 Port Alice, 翡翠上的珍珠, 一定要去住两天, 在饭馆喝着茶,就可以看到海峡里面的鲸鱼喷水,海豚跃出水面. 珍贵的原始生态.
    小镇唯一饭馆的香港华人老板娘叹息三个孩子不善经营餐馆,远走高飞. 她总想让我继承她家的大业, 不知怎的就看中了我做接班人, 颇为有趣.
    他们家经常夏天出海钓鱼,给我描绘鲸鱼围扑三文鱼的宏观场景,邀请我同去,总是没机会(找借口), 各种石斑鱼,鳕鱼味道好极了. 东南亚人少,华人少, 这里很容易钓到又大又鲜美的生猛野生螃蟹.

    如果看官您恰巧夏天路过 Port Alice, 我可以介绍您给餐馆老板.

    Q&A

    Q: 需不需要预订船票?
    A: 如果赶时间,一般都需要预订,悉尼这条线路不多收预订费. 其它航线需要多收一二十块钱的预订费.  步行者不需要预订.



    未完待续...

    first day in Bellevue/Seattle 西雅图贝勒府上班第一天

    第一天上班,一片混乱,主要是生活安排方面有点乱。
    (更新:找到两个合适的住处,下午下班以后搬家)

    开吻比我从容多了。

    再说说好的一面,工作不错,领导宽松,好相处,同时融洽,人事部友好,乐于帮助
    公司也不错。比以前极度抠门的公司大方多了,舒服。

    和新领导已经 1o1 一小时了。 一个好领导,比啥都重要。 理解,倾听,心态开放.

    我每两周跑一趟。 比开吻好些,他一边跑,找了个一千块钱的特价机票,就高兴的不得了。要知道,现在加拿大温哥华到中国的往返机票才六七百。

    能够在微信谈这么久,说明比上一家公司 Myra. com 还轻松 淡定 有条不紊。
    我的第一个任务是学习和探索如何在Oracle数据库和Hadoop之间移动数据。

    销售税:魁省,NS和王子岛15%;安省,NB和NL省13%;卑诗(B.C),曼省12%;萨省10%;阿省和北极3个特区无省税,只交5%GST。
