Where You At?

I missed a day of blogging yesterday, rare for me. What happened? Well, I realized in the morning that my work computer had a popup virus. It kept bringing up a browser window that looked like a virus alert message, inviting me to clean the virus that it had found. Clicking on it would, presumably, install something even worse.

It's kind of fascinating to tell the truth, because the popup is tellilng the truth. If I hadn't already downloaded something, I'd have never gotten the popup in the first place because I'm setup to open no popup windows. And Symantec didn't catch it first, so I'm obviously in the market for something.

Anyway so I lost a whole day of productive work AND fooling around to virus elimination steps. Viruses, it turns out, are not hilarious. I don't like 'em.

That's why I use a MAC.

That's all I have to say.

Me too, AT HOME. In fact, left to my own devices its either Mac or the net book with Linux.

It's OTHER PEOPLE'S devices that are ruining my life. If only someone would write Microsoft Great Plains for Linux, our IT guy would be happier. Or unemployed, I guess.
