In this world of people trying to make a fast buck at someone else's expense, it's a welcome breath of fresh air to find someone who is just trying to do a public service. H.D. Gupta of Singapore-based software distributor Goldkist International is so concerned over domain name piracy that he has registered the likes of cocacola.com, mcdonald.com, pepsi.com and microsoft.com. Mr Gupta is concerned that he was able to register so many domain names of major multi-nationals over the Internet through a Web site called names4ever. He even has bills of sale for the registrations. 'This is something unusual that has happened,' Mr Gupta said. 'It is strange that the domain names of such established brand names and companies are available so easily. 'We only want to make people aware of the fact that such an incident has happened also in such a fool-proof proven system.' Mr Gupta goes on to explain that he is fully aware of the value and importance of each domain name, with each one being worth in the region of US$50 million to $200 million or more. But Mr Gupta said he was taking a different path. He is starting the First Chapter of Cyber Honesty. 'We do not intend to harm anyone and will not misuse any brand or logo for any commercial benefit to us,' he said. 'We will just return it to the owner of same free of cost.' All the unselfish Mr Gupta requests is the 'honour to have dinner with the founder or chief executive officer of that company'. Interesting, as Mr Gupta has also registered billclinton.com. 'Things could get very messy if not controlled in time,' he said. Mr Clinton couldn't have put it better himself, Mr Gupta. Planning a change of job? Then you need to start with a holiday.

Commuters on First Ferry could be in line for an extra-large pair of hot-pants, absolutely free, according to the company's March newsletter. The caring sharing people carrier informs travellers they'll 'care for every passenger as we are together every step of the way'. Surely every wave of the way! Anywave, sorry, way, not only will passengers be able to park their posteriors on purple coloured cloth, but: 'The seats are made of inflammable material whose width is 7 cms more than those used on First Bus.' Ouch. More a case of bums on heat, than bums on seats. How well do you know your work colleagues? How many of them have been given parking tickets or worse still, been fined for jay-walking?
