.sg domain is the 10th riskiest in the world

Yes, you heard me right. According to McAfee’s “Mapping the Mal Web” report 2009, .sg domain is the 10th riskiest in the world. 4.6% of the .sg sites tested by McAfee pose a security risk. Which is quite a big jump compared to last’s year 0.3%. What have we been doing for this year? I thought we have a rather strict domain registration process. Plus .sg sites are slightly more expensive than other countries. Why would scammers want to use .sg?

Anyway, there is nothing much to worry. Hong Kong was one of the riskiest last year but they drop to 34th place this year. I’m sure our ranking will improve next year.

In the meantime, I would like to remind you that my blog url is blog.dk.sg. Beware, my blog is risky. Wahahahahaha……

Nerf

I didn’t know that there is an active Nerf community in Singapore. They even have a Nerf game event in early Nov 09. Cool. Check out the video.

There is also a local blog dedicated for Nerf fans. (Warning: Visit at your own risk. The site will make you be tempted to buy a Nerf gun)

Saw this awesome video on office war with Nerf. Cool man.

Do you have a Nerf war in your office? Haha. If yes, please let me know. I’ll send my resume there. :P

PS: I want a Nerf Raider CS-35 for Christmas. Pleaseeeeee……

Dee Kay Dot As Gee Giveaway: Namecard holder from Banyan Tree

Got this from a media Christmas party last week. It’s a beautifully designed namecard holder from the Museum Shop by Banyan Tree. This is part of the “Lion” Collection. The ink calligraphy is in Xing Style with the Chinese character “Lion” by Pan Shou followed by a verse about Singapore as a Lion City.

I love this namecard holder. But judging from the way I abuse my namecard holder, I think it will make Pan Shou a very angry person when he sees me. So I’m giving it away to my blog reader. Hope that he/she treats it well.

Hackerspace

I guess by now most of you would have heard of Hackerspace Singapore. It is hard for me to describe what exactly is a Hackerspace. According to the wikipedia, a hackerspace is a place where people with common interests, usually in science, technology, or digital or electronic art can meet, socialise and collaborate. Nothing much associated to the white hackers as mentioned in the Straits Times article sometime back.

When I first heard about the place from Justin, I was pretty excited about its potential. But there is only one thing that was holding me back, the membership fees. It was rather expensive. I was hoping that it could be free. But it’s impossible to run a place like that without collecting membership fee. And they are not making any profit out of this. All money collected will be channel back to Hackerspace.

But I changed my mind after visiting Hackerspace after BarCampSingapore 4. I love the location. I love the facilities. And most important, I love the synergy ongoing at hackerspace. I love the community spirit happening there.

And so, I became a member of Hackerspace.

There are quite a number of other Hackerspace around the world. And its an interesting community. Just last weekend, the founder of Noisebridge (a hackerspace in San Francisco) came down to Singapore to visit us.

Do pop by Hackerspace if you are free. Check out the cool place and if you are interested, sign up as member too. :)

Dee Kay Dot As Gee Giveaway: A pair of GV Movie Voucher

I got this pair of GV movie voucher from some event I attended. But since I’m watching lesser movies nowadays (cause can’t find friends to watch together), I decided to give them away.

By the way, is it just me or the GV movie voucher design just got uglier? Anyway, doesn’t matter. Can get movie tickets can liao. Who cares about the design? :P
