Stay safe on your FACEBOOK!

Facebook logo (c) copyright facebook.comFacebook is a social network phenomena used widely by a vast number of people on a daily basis. Many users of this social network had already experienced some form of fraudulent activity in one way or the other. Even if the fraudsters aren’t trying to gain any money directly from you, they can still use you to their benefit in other more sophisticated ways. One of the most obvious ways to do so is promoting websites or products on Facebook without your consent or knowledge. These people earn real money for advertising services that they provide to companies whose products or websites they promote. The outcomes of such activities are likes of pages that you have never heard off nor clicked ‘like’ but they still appear on your profile page.

Symptoms

Usually such fraudsters create fake web sites. The names of such web sites are not known to anyone, normally just a random word followed by .NET, .COM etc. domain name. They tend to use non English language in their websites as then English speaking people are unable to assess the content of such malicious websites.

GK System

Probably my biggest project is the GK system. Via this system are managed all postal packages, mail delivery, and advertising distribution processes. GK system also includes the printing of customer invoices, customer debts and incidents management. Basically, this system covers all business processes in this area.

This system was designed by a few months and the first version came out in early 2010. This system uses the UAB "Greitasis Kurjeris" company. Since then, this system is still expanding and evolving.

Since this company is large and located in all regions of Lithuania and it has a lot of workers, this system works using internet. This project currently uses the following technologies: .NET Framework 2.00 C#, MSSQL / T-SQL, Java (Android application), XML SOAP Web-services, ASP.NET.

Opencart module - Customer Codes

Today was finished development of new free Opencart module named Customer Codes. This module adds to customer information two fields: Company Code and VAT Code. This is very important for book-keeping in Lithuania as if customer is company and buys products, these fields must present on invoice by book-keeping rules. This module won't add these codes to invoice as lithuanian invoice is completely different form and it's another story.

But typically their size is to big for internet, for example each foto is 3264 x 2176 size or even bigger but for web enough is 800x600 or 1024x768. Easy way to process all these photo is to use InfranView for this.
