Hey everybody. Just popping in to let you know that I’m still alive. Sorry about the lack of posting over the last few days, but there’s only 1 of us around right now and I haven’t been very interesting this week. Nothing funny or thought provoking has happened to me over the last few days and nothing has pissed me off or made me laugh sufficiently enough for me to be able to write something even semi-interesting about it. when that happens, you either get nothing or you get this, so here it is.
my Idiot’s Argument
pretty handily. I don’t think TCBT got a single vote. That doesn’t mean he sucked though, it just means that more people agree with me which is cool because I’m right. But he stated his case well and it was hard to come back with something good enough to respond to all of his arguments. Good job buddy, it was fun.
If you didn’t get a chance to read it, click above and you can. The voting has ended, but the column is still there if you’re up for checking it out.
Somebody out there needs to run a virus scan, like now. I’ve lost count of the number of viruses or German hate Spam generated by viruses that I’ve gotten in the mail since the weekend, but I’d say it’s pushing 100 or more by now.
I don’t understand why some people still don’t protect themselves against this crap. Even the newest computer user has to know that this stuff exists and that it’s dangerous, so why not do something to protect yourself, your computer, and the computers of your friends and family? It’s not that hard to install and maintain an anti-virus program, and it doesn’t take that much time either. Once you get it set up, all you have to do is remember to update it regularly and use some common sense and not blindly open attachments that show up in your email, no matter where they come from.
Somehow we need to make it a crime to run an internet connected computer without a current and functioning anti-virus program on it. And if there was a way to do that without getting the government involved in it, that would be even better, especially considering how effective that fucking anti-Spam legislation the United States passed was. Good job guys, I’ve gotten more Spam than ever before since that thing became law. I suppose it’s mission accomplished if you use the George Bush Iraq conflict definition of the phrase, but to the rest of the world, things have only gotten worse.
See, I told you there wouldn’t be very much to this post. When nothing’s going on it’s hard to come up with material. I’ll do my best though. In the meantime, if any of you have any topic ideas or interesting stuff to pass along, leave a comment or send it to me and I’ll see what I can come up with.
Until we talk again, save the whales, and see if you can collect the whole set.
