You Might Want To Check This Out...!

I'm not saying that everyone, or even anyone, is going to have picked this up...but it never hurts to check, just in case!

Far be it for me to tell you what to do, but I just figured that I should call this problem to your attention. Many folks may not have heard of it.

Like I said, you might want to check it out. It won't take long and could keep you from having a real panic attack when you find you suddenly are unable to connect with the net!

Coffee outside again this morning. Boy, this is getting to be habit forming!

Thanks for sharing this. Checked mine, and I am safe thankfully. I don't understand why this isn't in the news more to prepare people. But that's the media for you. I passed on for others.

Yep, Thanks for the heads up. I check my Trend Micro and it's up to date. Even ran a quick scan. All is well.
BTW, coffee inside here, windy and 46 outside! I ain't no fool. :-)

Just goes to show how vulnerable we are.
Please give your mom my condolences on the loss of her friend. My computer wouldn't let me leave a comment yesterday.

One more reason I normally surf the web using Linux as my operating system.

Thanks for sharing. I'll have my coffee after I shovel my 5 inches of heavy wet snow.

Hey Stephanie...
Like I said, many won't be infected but this is one of those "just in case" things, ya know?

Good to see you again, my friend! Glad you were clear!

Thanks, Steph, for coming by this morning.


Hey Ben...
Very windy and chilly here this morning as well. Maybe the patio wasn't such a good idea!

I figured you would be in good shape, buddy! You are pretty savvy on this stuff!

Thanks for coming by today!


Hey Momlady...
Glad to see you back with us. I'll certainly pass on the condolences to Mom...and thanks!

Thanks also for coming by today!


Hey Sixbears...
Not a bad idea at all. I have tried to get used to Linux, but didn't try hard enough! Still hung up on Windows!

Thanks, buddy, for coming by today!


Hey Linda...
Boy, I am so sorry you have that cold, wet stuff to deal with! Maybe you should take a road trip to the South!

In your case, coffee inside sounds much better!

Thanks for coming by today!


Hey Craig...
Just trying to do my part to share what little bit of knowledge I pick up!

Getting excited about the Patcom, I reckon?

Hey, thanks for coming by today!

At 68 years old I've spent most of my life without the internut, pretty sure that if it goes away that my life will be better off because of it.

Just one more thing they don't want to tell us... Thanks for the heads up!
