Here I Come to Save the Daaay-

It’s Borepaaatch, All the Way…

Last Wednesday, this here computer went all wonky on me. Popups, weird links, other crap. What to do? (besides panic)?

I called my bud Borepatch (don’t try this at home- he’s a friend of mine & a really good shot). He gave me some suggestions, which I followed.

So-

I used my resident AVG scanner, & it reported “8 bells, & all is well”.

Then I used the Microsoft evil software finder thingy, & it let me know that there were “no infections found”.

Go to the Borepatch site, on my friend’s suggestion. There, under the “security” tag, was a recommendation for Malware Bytes.

Downloaded it, ran it, & it found 28 “infections”, which contained them, & deleted after I followed the instructions. 40 minutes for the entire removal/scan process- can’t beat that with a stick.

I’m a happy camper.

Thanks MalwareBytes.

Thanks, BP.

“Time Flies Like an Arrow…

…fruit flies like a banana.” -G. Marx


Friday evening I attended a wake/service for a friend from my teenage years, a local musician who was in our garage band back in the day. I looked around at the attendees- it was amazing how old those folks got.

Anyway, during the service, as people were giving testimonials about their relationship with the deceased, a woman got up, identified herself, & had her say. After the service was complete, I went over to her & said hello- she recognized me.
After some hugs, we talked for about half an hour about our lives, families, & the trials of life.

As I got up to leave, I realized that we had been holding hands for all that time.

Just like we did in 1967.
