Domain Registry of Canada Scam

Domain Registry of Canada Scam: If you’ve ever purchased a domain, you may receive a letter in your mailbox from a company called “Domain Registry of Canada” asking you to renew. (I got another one today) They list your domain name details and expiry.
It looks like a government official domain name authority with a Canadian flag on their envelope. They also use the same colour envelope that you would expect from the Canadian Government. Inside you’ll find something resembling an invoice.
THIS IS A SCAM! Please do not send any money to this company. If you are unsure, contact your domain provider.

Below is a sample of what the fake document looks like…

Bitmap and Vector Images

Bitmap and Vector Images:
BITMAP – or raster images are made up of pixels in a grid. Resolution is determined by the grid – 72 dots per inch is 72 dpi. that means there are 72 dots within one square inch. 300 dpi means 300 dots within one square inch. Computer monitors display 72 dpi or 96 dpi. Your desktop colour printer prints about 150 dots per inch. Newspapers are printed at 200-300 dpi. Magazines are much higher – 300-600 dpi. Common bitmap formats are jpg, png, tiff Some formats support transparent backgrounds – GIF and PNG. Others have opaque (non see through) backgrounds.

VECTOR – Vector images are made up of many individual, scalable objects. These objects are defined by mathematical equations rather than pixels, so they always render at the highest quality. A vector image can be reduced to a postage stamp or enlarged to a billboard without loosing any quality.
Objects may consist of lines, curves, and shapes with editable attributes such as color, fill, and outline.Shapes are formed with handles. Most vector images are created from scratch using programs such as Adobe Illustrator. Vector images can be converted to bitmap images.
