Issue Resolved

So the issue with the UniSIM site seems to be resolved already... after about a week or s. And even than the method of delivering (admitting that the site was attacked) was in a peculiar way. It's a scrollling marquee across the top saying " Important Notice" and you can download the file only when you click on the moving text... which is so... not user friendly.... -_-"

The school finally sent an email today saying:

So what works:

What doesn't:

And that means that it offers more by showing everything for sale on the web. The way it works is just like Google, except that it's for the sole purpose of shopping. And the possibilities seem endless!

Searching for a new wireless router has never been simpler. With just a simple search text of wireless router, many search results were displayed. And that was certainly useful! A tool I definitely use when looking for things to buys online.
