Oh yeah - I still has a journal. Again - how do all those people on my "Freaks" list get there? I KNOW that I haven't tagged that many people as such. I remember tagging one guy, way back when I was new here. The rest? What - if I argue another guy's point of view long enough, the system tags him for me? Whatever.

I've just fixed some woman's machine for her. A Dell, with WinXP on it. Her son-in-law decided to pirate Win7 and upgrade. It worked - Win7 installed, and I guess it ran nicely, except for the ugly black desktop. I grabbed a Dell OEM disk for XP Home, and reinstalled. No crapware - I didn't even stick that disk with "Extra Software" into the drive.

For security, I'm relying on Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Firewall - along with Spybot S&D and Spyware Blaster. IE6 is gone, replaced with IE8, and Firefox is installed. I'm stopping there - those security measures have proven sufficient in all my VM's and on the single Windows machine that I own. We'll just see how that all works in real life, with your average grandma type.

If I can remember that I has a journal, I'll post back here sometime.

Freaks... (1)

Freaks are just people who have added you to their foes lists. You seem to have a pretty good collection, to which I say well done, sir.
