Ask Slashdot: How Do I Get My Spouse To Start Gaming With Me?

Evelas Start small (550 comments)

Take it a step at a time, our interests in gaming didn't appear overnight. Start with board/card games like Settlers of Catan or Munchkin. Play those with mutual friends, it may help build up her interest. Settlers of Catan is only a step away from Civilization games. If she has any friends that play Magic the Gathering, that can be a good start too, and the artwork may draw her in, or the collecting. Use these to bring out her interest, then try straightforward, shorter, but good games, like Portal. But don't just recommend your favorite games, ask what she's interested in. If she isn't sure, slowly try out a genre at a time. Avoid first person shooters at all cost unless you are positive she's interested in them.

Zeus Botnet Down But Not Out

Evelas Botnets (67 comments)

There are stories about botnets all the time, but I usually don't see anything about how to remove them. I'm pretty confident in my browsing habits, but the same can't be said for my relatives. What's the easiest way to check a machine for infestation? Do standard virus scanners handle it, or programs like Malewarebytes?

Schooling Microsoft On Random Browser Selection

Evelas Weird (436 comments)

So people keep saying press F5 to see the unsorted order, and I went to try it (after allowing javascript), and when I refreshed I got: Google Chrome image - Google Chrome Firefox image - Safari Firefox image - Firefox IE - IE Opera - Opera and after about a 2-3 second pause, staring at that, the first Firefox image changed to the correct Safari one
